Point 2: making abortion illegal only stops safe, legal abortions. It also kills women.

Point 3: why is a woman's bodily autonomy even up for debate? Either women are people or they aren't. Which side are you on?

Point 3: It is the business of a woman and her doctor whether she has an abortion or not. That's it. No one else.

I don't care that 1/3 of people don't want women to have abortions. If they don't like them, they can choose not to have them, but abortion is, ultimately, health care.

If men could have abortions, there'd be a clinic on every corner.
