NO ONE is "pro-abortion"...least of all women. BlueCaliDem Apr 2015 #3
I am. Proudly. Many of us are. PeaceNikki Apr 2015 #5
Not to come across insensitive, but BlueCaliDem Apr 2015 #6
Yes. I am not ashamed or guilty about it. Only relived I could. PeaceNikki Apr 2015 #8
No need to feel ashamed or guilty about it at all. It was your choice to make, and BlueCaliDem Apr 2015 #10
So maybe stop saying that NO ONE is pro abortion. Lots of us are. PeaceNikki Apr 2015 #16
NO ONE I *know* has ever said they're pro-abortion. My post is based on my personal BlueCaliDem Apr 2015 #28
