I'm pro abortion.

I refuse to be shamed or bullied into denying that I am unequivocally in favor of abortion.

1. I'm pro choice

A woman should make the choice she's comfortable with.

12. Abortion is one of the options available in Choice, if a woman chooses it.

Why give republicans fuel with your choice of terminology? They love the use of the term Pro Abortion by the left. It is unfortunate that some on our side insist upon falling into their trap.

The planet is over populated already.

4. Also pro-abortion. It's a safe, simple procedure that does what it's intended to do, which is

end an unwanted pregnancy. When treated as healthcare and not a morality tool, of course.

5. I am pro-abortion as a woman's medical option/necessity.

I am also anti-forced pregnancy/birth.

I am also more pro-life than the forced birthers.

No bullying or shaming will ever change my mind.

It is the woman's choice.

Last edited Sun Jul 8, 2018, 11:47 PM - Edit history (1)

I'm 65, never had kids of my own, but I remember when I was a preteen and father had to tell his best friend that he'd just taken best-friend's daughter to the hospital for complications of a botched back-alley abortion.

No woman should ever have to resort to one of these butchers ever again.


As a middle-aged (-to-old) man, my opinion is that abortion should be safe, legal, and none of my goddamn business.

11. Pro Choice is a much better term.

Pro Choice says that it is up to a woman to decide what happens with her body.

that a woman shouldn't decide what happens with her body.

16. Neither does pro choice. But pro choice don't allow republicans to tar and feather us.

We need to use language better. There have been several recent cases

Abolish ICE? What the hell does that mean? Reform ICE is much more descriptive.

Abolish Profit? Really? That's a sure loser at the polls, except in a few places.

18. And we've done very well over the last 30 years

by running away and hiding every time the republicans say “boo”. We’ve been letting the other party frame the abortion debate since the 90s. We’ve conceded that there is something wrong with abortions. We need to stop doing that.

23. They framed it on us by us using pro abortion.

It is pro choice

We want women to chose what happens to their body
We want women to have access to birth control and abortion if they chose that route
We CHOSE to feed and care for children after they are born and not just in the womb
We chose to educate children and limit their exposure to gun violence
We chose to provide safe food and water to children

Every single thing we chose to do, republicans are failing on, we need to attack them on principles and stop tripping ourselves up with self limiting terminology.

24. It kind of does, and leaves out the issues of societal/financial coercion.

It's like saying you're pro-death penalty, which is different from "I support a convicted person's right to choose death over life in prison in 23 hour solitary confinement". If I held the attitude that a person in such a circumstance could even be making that call of their own free will, it'd still not going to get me on a jury in a capital case. I'd have to convince a judge I thought I had the right to choose life or death for another adult human being just because they committed a crime. I don't, let alone the right to tell them what to do with a fetus inside them.

I'm pro-choice. Women should not be coerced into aborting OR carrying, but supported by society 100% in whatever decision they make for that pregnancy.

And we as a society do a piss-poor job of supporting the woman through *either* decision because politics is so focused on what their decision should or should not be. Pregnant women shouldn't be having to get preached at and called a slut to get diapers for the baby they wanted to keep after unintentionally getting pregnant, which is the situation many find themselves in for exercising their choice. And yeah, they're getting called names, but it's worth it to them to get the diapers.

But it shouldn't be that way.

13. I am also pro appendectomy and pro cholecystectomy when medically indicated.

Therapeutic abortion is a medical procedure, not a lifestyle choice.

17. I am pro-population reduction.

Abortion is just one of the many routes that should be available to achieve that goal.

I am 100 pct behind any woman who chooses it to end an undesired pregnancy for any reason she deems necessary.

25. Safe, legal and available abortion

I am for safe, legal, and available abortions. I'd also like them to be fully funded. So I am pro abortion too, if all of these conditions were met many more abortions would occur.

Young mothers should be able to absolutely choose when and when not they carry a fetus to term.

30. Saw "freakenomics" on HBO?

Well, one of those, anyway.
Using numbers they wanted to see what brought crime numbers down.
They looked at 3 strikes, they looked at the addition of cops.
They found out that unwanted childern, that the mothers couldn't afford to raise were the cause of large uptick in crime.
Conclusion? Roe v Wade brought crime down....BOOM!

I highly recommend watching-reading the study.
