As a child my mom was very heavily into Pro Choice... She would educated me on how it wasn't murder and tell me a few other facts that I later learned were totally warpped into fitting into her discussion.. In 10th grade I gave a speech and essay on being Pro Choice and how abortion wasn't murder.. I cited all my work, including the medical facts I obtained, and was the only person in the grade to recieve an A+ on that assignment. I was once at our state fair and there was a tent there with a banner that said "RIGHT TO LIVE!" and had a group of anti-abortionists gathered who were passing out information on abortion and how adoption is better. I walked over to the tent and literally started a verbally fight with the man on how he needs to mind his own business and let people choose what they do with their bodies and how "conservative assholes" pissed me off. I was as Pro Choice as you can get!
Someone once asked me if I ever wanted children. I said yes and she smiled and said "I'd like to ask your opinion on abortion a few months into your own pregnancy" I basically told her to shut up and that I'd always be Pro Choice.
She couldn't have been more right. Within a matter of weeks my opinion had totally changed. It's only a "blob" when it's not your own "blob". Then it's a baby! I'm completely anti abortion now. It makes me sick to think about abortion anymore. I just want all Pro Choicers to know that I was once like them. Completely Pro Choice! But I later learned that so many of my "Facts" weren't true. I didn't have a full understanding of abortion, even into adulthood. If you want to be Pro Choice that's fine but make sure you really know what you are fighting for. You are basically fighting for the right of a woman to suck a tiny little fetus or embryo out its home because you don't want to deal with the consequence of your actions. I don't see how anyone could fight for that, but each to their own!
