The CHOICE to have an abortion is nothing more than avoiding the consequinces of that first CHOICE - or rather, making the baby suffer the consequinces so you don't have to. They CHOOSE for the baby to sacrifice his ACTUAL LIFE so that the mother does not have to sacrifice her WAY OF LIFE... and they call it freedom. How sad.
