so, e to the 5th ... you do not support abortion ... so ... e to the 5th ... I'll say this as succinctly as possible:

DON'T GET AN ABORTION

STAY OUT OF WOMEN'S WOMBS.

Of course pro-choice is the same as pro-abortion, There are only two possible choices. To abort and not to abort. You already have the freedom not to abort. What's left? Abortion.
Pro choice implies choice to carry to term or abort. If Pro-life implies every embryo be carried to term and delivered then pro-abortion implies every conception be terminated.

Exactly. That is what I was trying to get at.

Maybe instead of forcing everyone to conform to your beliefs you should work on the ones who are already believers... namely the young women in the bible belt who are constantly getting pregnant because nobody TEACHES them birth control. 5 of the 13 graduates of my friends school (North County CHRISTIAN school) were pregnant or already had children by the time they were 18....

Please, just stay out of my body, it's not yours to legislate. Until that fetus can survive outside of my body, it IS a parasite and it IS part of MY body.
Hate to break it to you, but you are forced to wear a seatbelt. You are forced to wear clothes. etc etc. Your body is controlled in many annoyingly small ways that seem normal to us now. Women who get abortions have abnormally high suicide rates...guilt perhaps?

Have you ever had one?

When natural things are governed by legislation, there are bound to be problems. A case can be made that outlawing abortion will lead to more questionable abortions (not done by qualified individuals in a qualified facility). The danger there is clear. More lives are potentially at risk. Anyway, right or wrong or legal or illegal, many people with unwanted pregnancies will seek abortions. The key is likely in reducing unwanted pregnancies either through abstinence (not sure how realistic that is) or through birth control. Education is key here but how to educate causes quite the debate.

As long as certain mainstream messages (sexuality starts at the Disney Channel level) are so prevalent, we will struggle with this issue. Also, our natural predisposition for pleasure complicates the whole thing to. Yes indeed. Can we train our selves to be less natural? Less of the animals we really are?

Do you know how many women don't regret their abortion?

Is a fertilized egg a chicken or is it an egg? Next time you order breakfast make sure you order 2 chickens over easy with a side of bacon.

Not even a good attempt at glossing over the fact there is no pro-abortion side.
