I’m 100% for women’s rights. I’m also 100% for human rights. I’m also 100% for the women’s right to choose. When it comes to not wanting kids, she can choose to not have sex, she can choose to use birth control, she can choose to make responsible choices.

People who are pro-abortion have chosen a very sly way to market their ideas. They call it “Pro-Choice”. Everyone wants to have a choice, right? I know I do. I like being able to choose my clothes, music, spouse, and all sorts of other things. It’s cool, right?

Then we hear on the news that those mean ol’ conservatives trying to take choices away from women, those mean ol’ rich white men. Whatever.

Like I said, I’m 100% for women’s rights. Women are equal to men in every way, and they absolutely have the right to be treated as such. But why are they allowed to take choices away from their kids? Pro-choice sounds awfully Anti-choice to me.

Isn’t it the liberals who pushed for civil and human rights a few decades ago in America? I absolutely believe in human rights. That includes the right to be born in the first place. Women are asking why anyone has the ability to take their rights away? I ask them the exact same question.

Why did my mom have the right to kill me? I know that for some, being pregnant is awfully inconvenient. But why do they wait until after-the-fact to think about the consequences?

Did you know that at 6 weeks, the child has every organ it will ever need to sustain life? Most women don’t even find out they they’re pregnant until then. Do you know what partial birth abortions are? Just a term for something? Perhaps it’s when they induce labor, and as the child is in the process of being born, they slit open the baby’s neck and suck the brains out with a miniature vacuum. Yummy. Anyone up for some tapioca pudding?

This is just one of the things that frusterate me.
