Murdering a child you created because you don't want the responsibility of raising that child is being responsible?
Birthing a child and hoisting that responsibility off "being responsible"?
You know what, I'm gonna make an exception just this one time. I'm going to subsidize your contraception for the rest of your life. Send me a bill. I can't in good conscience let any offspring from someone so intellectually destitute as you to populate this planet
Now you are wanting to decide that i don't deserve to have children because i argued against you on an online forum??
Funny how prone you are to denying others what they want. Freedom, i guess.
Where's my freedom of choice Mr. Libertarian

Well I am not a Hillary fan but I am also pro-choice. There are already to many people in the world and anyone that wants to abort will not make the best of parents if denied the choice. The kid will have a miserable life and will probably end up being very negative to the world.
Your trying to predict the future. Just because you think the child will have a bad life it's ok. That excuse is pathetic. The kids not gonna be anything so it's OK to kill em. Seriously mate? That's all it takes for you to be ok with this?

No, they don't. Other services are provided which the federal funding finances. Abortions are paid for by the client.
Recently, Planned Parenthood was caught “cooking the books” in an attempt to neutralize the argument that its primary mission is to provide abortion services. Planned Parenthood has often cited that abortions actually make up less than 10% of their overall services.
Upon closer scrutiny, it is found that the organization counts each abortion performed as one visit—even though it actually requires several trips to the clinic. This is while giving a 12 month packet of birth control pills is counted as at least 12 visits—despite the fact that only one clinic trip is necessary. As former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson has pointed out, this has the effect of “skew[ing] the numbers. You have an overwhelming number of ‘visits’ for family planning compared to abortion, even though you may have seen the same number of patients.”
After unraveling Planned Parenthood’s deceptive statistics, it is found that 96% of its services provided to pregnant women are abortions.
I'm sure some women use it without even thinking about it or for some kind of birth control too.
and so on and so forth.
National Pro-Life Women’s Caucus
The Caucus is a project of the Susan B. Anthony List to identify, organize, and advance women lawmakers who are dedicated to ending abortion in America by passing laws that save lives.
The Caucus aims to:
CONNECT women to model legislation, allied groups, ground-breaking research, legal support, and other resources they need to introduce and defend pro-life legislation.
PROVIDE women with the grassroots and media support they need to pass pro-life legislation.
TRAIN women and their male colleagues on how to best articulate the pro-life message
RECRUIT women to run for office and connect them with the resources they need to win whenever possible
“The strong women leaders in the NPLWC bring a wealth of knowledge, diverse experience
it's important to note that federal dollars are not used to provide the service at the center of the political debate around Planned Parenthood: abortions. That's been banned by law in almost all cases since 1976. (The details of the ban have shifted over time.) Instead, the organization uses money from other sources — private donors and foundations as well as fees — to fund its abortion services.
All told, abortions comprise about 3 percent of all the services Planned Parenthood provides, according to the organization's own data. (In 2011, FactCheck.org also examined this question and found the organization's reports to be accurate) The rest of the organization's revenue, including government dollars, are used to fund services in a way that breaks down like this:
