You folks should be pro-choice for the benefit of anti abortion protesters at clinics when the tables have been turned on them, find themselves pregnant and wanting an abortion. If abortion is banned, they won't have access to safe and professional medical facilities. Nor will any other woman:

Excerpted from: THE PRO-CHOICE ACTION NETWORK

"I've had several cases over the years in which the anti-abortion patient had rationalized in one way or another that her case was the only exception, but the one that really made an impression was the college senior who was the president of her campus Right-to-Life organization, meaning that she had worked very hard in that organization for several years. As I was completing her procedure, I asked what she planned to do about her high office in the RTL organization. Her response was a wide-eyed, 'You're not going to tell them, are you!?' When assured that I was not, she breathed a sigh of relief, explaining how important that position was to her and how she wouldn't want this to interfere with it." (Physician, Texas)

Sure....it's the abortionists job to kill the fetus when asked. A doctor doesn't have to recommend it.

House passes bill banning abortions after 20 weeks - CNNPolitics.com

Of course Hillary is against it.
It's not Congress' business. Why anyone concerns themselves with the abortion issue these days
when we have so many problems feeding and taking care of breathing human beings, is beyond me.

Oklahoma pays for its low abortion rate by having one of the highest rates of unwed teenage pregnancies of the states. That is an example of one problem that needs more worry and attention than abortion.

And still, doctors do make recommendations. You may not like it, but doctors do make recommendations, for health reasons, regarding the woman, to abort fetuses.

I wonder if he realizes the ones that preform an abortion are also doctors.....Though I guess some people want to have the government in control of their body and decisions they make for their own body.

Next thing we know, anti-choice people will be wanting the government to regulate what a woman can eat, drink, and do while she is pregnant.

I've covered that.

"Doc, I'm 21 weeks pregnant and I don't want to carry out this pregnancy. My boyfriend just left me and I dont want my parents to know"

Doctor: I recommend an abortion.

No one is arguing that doesn't happen.

Why would a woman carry a fetus for 21 weeks and then change her mind about it? How about we act like we are in the real world with our posts rather than this fantasy you seem to have cooked up.

No woman carries a fetus for 21 weeks and then gets an abortion because she changed her mind about having a baby.

If a woman wants to cut off her arm or her leg, that's OK with me. But a fetus isn't her flesh. It has different DNA and she shouldn't have unlimited control over that creature living inside her.
