This is typical disingenuous anti-choice bunk . Making abortion illegal, as anti-choice fanatics like this woman want, will do nothing but iNCREASE the number of abortions in America and cause the deaths of many,many poor women in America from botched illegal abortions . Back-alley abortionists will instantly spring into action if women lose reproductive freedom . Government-ordered compulsory childbirth can never cause anything but catastrophe for a nation . And making contraceptives illegal, as so many anti-choicers stupidly demand, will only cause MORE illegal abortions.

Ha! Liberals go on and on about choice, but it doesn't seem to bother them when other rights are infringed upon, such as...

...our right to choose what size soda we want to purchase
...our right to choose what kind of light bulbs we want to use
...our right to choose to purchase handguns
...our right to choose to drive an SUV
...our right to choose to drill for oil
...our right to choose where our children attend primary school
...our right to worship as we choose without the HHS dictating to us
...our right to choose whether or not to buy into Obamacare

But as long as the right to choose to "terminate" your unborn baby remains, then it's all good.

If this issue was about CHOICE then abortions would only be allowed in instances of rape (when her choice was over-ridden by the criminal act of another), or when the mothers live was endangered (when it is a choice of saving one life or ending two). When you chose to have sex, you choose the possibility of becoming pregnant. Every form of contraceptive has a failure rate. Contraceptives minimize the risk of pregnancy, not eliminate it.

As I under stand it rape victims account for only about 2% of the abortions performed in th US. For the most part abortion is about running away from the consequence of a choice (to engage in sexual activity).

Abstinence before marriage and fedelity within marriage is the way to minimize abortions.
In the four decades since Roe v. Wade first opened wide the floodgates of abortion in America, those of us fighting to protect the unborn and their mothers have had, unfortunately, no shortage of public relations gaffes and poor explanations for the greater public.

That is perhaps why so many pundits agree that despite Mitt Romney’s strong performance in Denver, President Obama need only mention the “war on women” in one of the remaining debates to bring him to his knees. Even though pro-life self-identification is more prevalent than the President’s position of taxpayer-funded abortion on-demand, the fact that Republicans...
