After reading posts for years about abortion, I realized today what has been bothering me so much. The people arguing against abortion almost always have no compassion in their vocabulary for women. Why is that? Why do anti-choice women have no room for compassion and an understanding of the extremely painful lives that women who have abortion endure? There seems to only be room for indignation for the unborn.
Here is a brief list of what some women go through prior to an abortion:
abuse and trauma
no sex education
a lifetime of being taught their sexuality is meaningless
a lifetime of being taught subservience to men
using drugs and alcohol to self-medicate
no access to higher education
Anit-choice ladies: I think people MIGHT be a little more open to you if you added some compassion into your vocabulary.
