1) It’s not about choice; it’s about abortion.
I mean, really, what “choice” are we talking about here? The “choice” to what? We’re not debating the “choice” to keep your child and raise him yourself. We’re not arguing over adoption, either. The sole thing we have a difference on is abortion. That’s what we’re debating here. So let’s get real.
You’re either pro-abortion or you’re pro-life. If you support the “choice” to abort, then you are pro-abortion. And if you have a hard time with that, maybe you should reconsider your beliefs…
2) Abortion DOES hurt women.
This is part of the reason it’s “tragic,” in the words of many on both sides of the issue. It’s disingenuous to act as though abortion isn’t a painful decision for many women (not all).
