Not when your on the other end of it .
I agree it is a hard choice but hers alone to make.
Before the people who are pro life come in I want them to answer these questions.
1) Do you want abortion illegal?.
2) If made illegal how are you going to stop women having a back alley abortion?.
3) What punishment are you going to give them.
4) Who looks after and pays the many more unwanted kids we have in the world seeing we are not looking after the ones we have now?.

But then it seems to me that dads don't matter especially to the man hating women who scream on both sides of the debate..

As genders biologically differ I think it's impossible to obtain the same rights in that sense for men and women; if a man would order that the child stays inside you and you give birth to it... to what, hand it over to him? While you were forced when it wasn't necessary to use your body as an incubator? That sounds absolutely horrifying. And when you yourself don't want it but are still forced to carry it that's a major intrusion on your body imo.
I applaud those who have personal experience with someone who can then understand it was a mistake and have the courage to speak out against it.
And her implication that the majority of people in that clinic are pregnant due to rape is absolutely, 100% not supported by any evidence I have ever seen--and I've researched this a lot.

Her argument is that abortion is the better of the two extreme evils of killing a child prior to birth, or killing one by leaving it in a dumpster.
But to hear this lady on the video calling someone who had an abortion a hypocrite for speaking out against it, that's idiocy. I applaud those who have personal experience with someone who can then understand it was a mistake and have the courage to speak out against it.
If a child is the legal responsibility of the father after birth--purely because he's the biological father--then he should also have a say in what happens prior to the birth.
