Pro-choice vs. Pro-life

The definition of pro-choice is “advocating for legalized abortion” which also means giving women the right to get an abortion without having to suffer legal consequences. It also means that women have their own choice about whether or not they wish to keep their unborn babies. Pro-life means that women do not have a choice because it would be illegal to get an abortion since some people believe that aborting an unborn fetus is morally wrong.  

I personally think that women should have their own choice to have an abortion and that we shouldn’t make laws that force decisions for other people. I also think that everyone is entitled to their own opinions which is fine, but I believe that if you don’t have a female reproductive system, then you really shouldn’t publicly voice an opinion on the topic. 

You also have to take into consideration that the “baby” is not an actual baby yet, it’s just a fetus. Yes, some might argue that it’s still a life and that all lives – from bacteria to humans – matter, which is true. Every life on earth should be preserved and nurtured, however, sometimes abortion can be the only option to save the life of the mother. Another factor we should take into consideration is that everyone always has a reason for their actions. There are always two sides to a story. You never know what’s happening in a person’s life or what has already happened. 

Abortion should be legal everywhere so that women can decide what is right for them. It’s crazy how some states like Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Wisconsin have laws that ban abortion. This also ties into women being treated with respect and equality. Women, and only women, should have a say in women related topics, not men. 

I’m not trying to change your opinion or trying to persuade you either, I’m simply educating you and sharing my thoughts on this topic and how I feel about it. I personally think we should all come together and help each other learn and grow. If you are pro-life, that’s fine, and if you are pro-choice, that’s also fine. Everyone was raised differently which is why different opinions emerge.
