Abortion Quotes from Pro-Life and Pro-Choice Activists

The political issue of abortion has divided the world for many decades.

Abortion has been practiced since the olden times.

However, most of the procedures then involved non-surgical yet heavy physical activities like paddling, weightlifting, climbing, etc.

Today, abortion is actively happening around the world, regardless of its legality, safety and availability.

And while the commitment and efforts to reduce the need for abortion through education and contraception continue, people are still at odds about this issue.

    ‘#UnwantedPregnancy’ what a sociopathic euphemism? … The social engineers really outdid themselves with this one. You may be able to win the argument based on individual sovereignty on a legal basis, but you can’t contend with the science that proves life begins at conception, nor can you deny that it is technically killing a life that’s in the process of developing. When will you realize that arguing for #MyBodyMyChoice when it comes to this issue while denying people’s rights to bodily integrity and autonomy when it comes to #MandatoryVaccination is not only the height of hypocrisy, but puts your illogical unprincipled mind on full display?

    In regards to the law that passed in Texas, which I have mixed feelings about, I wanted to say this… And I don’t care if I’m not a female, because a) according to you geniuses men can have babies now, and b) because about half of all babies born are male, so? Look…

    Do I think the law is fair? No. Then again, is the act of ending an unborn babies life because it conflicts with your own, or will inconvenience you, FAIR? Understandably there are circumstances that such a drastic action may be morally justifiably, but the VAST MAJORITY of abortions don’t fit that description. Everyone acts like the moral thing to do is to allow women to end the life inside of them as if it were a vestigial organ being removed for genuine medical reasons. When, in reality, millions of babies are snuffed out before they can take their first breath, which the same people have no compassion for. Why? Because they have convinced themselves that it is not a life of its own.
