Y'all have doubtlessly heard that Dr. George Tillman was murdered in church yesterday.
I've been reading various news stories and posts about it, and now feel compelled to say why I am pro-choice. It's because, in my view, there is no virtue in doing the right thing when there is no other alternative.

Not to mention I distrust any group that has the power to impose its version of what's right on everyone else.

I'm pro-choice because while I wouldn't have (didn't have) an abortion myself, it's not up to me to choose for other people. Who am I to tell someone they have to have a baby in their situation?

And I believe life starts when you think it does. It's a religious issue and that's something you can't define for someone else.

As the birth, foster and adoptive mother of special needs kids, I have seen the worse people can do to their children.
Every time I see the phrase 'Pro-Choice' I think that the choice of not to get pregnant has failed. That what is going on is cleaning up after that failure. I don't believe one makes the choice to get pregnant to then have an abortion. And I don't think we are pro-abortion. No, it is a sad choice so women and girls are not forced into a situation they should not be forced into. Of course, the solution is to not make babies unless the parties involved wanto to make babies.
As a person outside of this whole life choice - being 63, a Lesbian with no womb, on an emotional basis, I want to stamp out irresponsible hetrosexuality. In the world according to Ahavia, if you make people you don't want and can't take care of, after the 3rd unwanted prenancy - you have your tubes tied and the male would have a vasestomy. 3 strikes and your out.
Upset about the doctors murder so venting,
