    Earlier this year, I was sexually assaulted in my own home. I’m 19, and I still live with my parents, but they weren’t home at the time. I invited the guy over, as he was a long-time friend, and he already had a girlfriend. He came over, things happened (things I’d rather not get specific about), and he didn’t use a condom. I wasn’t on birth control because I had never had sex before , nor did I have any interest in having sex at that time. I was violated, and I later found I was pregnant as a result. I was terrified, I couldn’t possibly become a mother. I had only just started college, my life was only just beginning. So, I finally told my older sister what happened. After talking with her for a while, she finally agreed that I should get an abortion. We went to the clinic, my insurance covered everything, and once it was all over, I was so happy and relieved. I didn’t have to give up on my goals and aspirations, my future wouldn’t be dictated by a child I never asked for. I can live my life, and I have no regrets about my decision to have the abortion. Anyone who wants to try and shame me, can go fuck themselves.
    My body, MY FUCKING LIFE.
    Get over it, dickwads.
    You want less women getting abortions? Try to limit the amount of women getting RAPED on a daily basis. Ass-clowns.

    Oh please, PLEASE, just try to argue that you can’t POSSIBLY control the actions of people, when that’s EXACTLY what you’re attempting to do with women’s abortion rights.
    Please, I’m DYING to hear the idiocy of some jackass who thinks he’s being fucking smart or cute by arguing with me. Later.

            The fact the 9 states are doing this is proof that there are 41 states without the balls to stop baby murderers.

                    Its not about controlling women. It's about stopping people from murdering. It's not that hard to understand.

                              I don't know why you guys support abortion. But let me define abortion in a new way, abortion is killing of an unborn child because of your lack of planning and lack of responsibility. Abortion should be a criminal offence, all over the globe. If you don't need a child then don't have unprotected sex. And if somehow you still get pregnant, then take required action on early weeks and abort the need for abortion. I am referring both man and woman as "you or your" in here, because both are responsible and have equal responsibilities in this.

                                Ok. So she called the guy next to her a “white privileged latte” and everyone laughed. But if a white man had made a similar comment to an African American women, in a similar context, would the audience have laughed as well, or would the said white man have been branded as a racist?

                                            it's so stupid how they act like people against abortions are heartless anti women. Instead of seeing it from there side of not killing a baby
