No, I'm not a vegan at all.
I'm just wondering why they don't want to protect ALL life.
I'm pro-choice on this subject always have been. The government has regulated enough of what we do to our bodies.
I do however believe there should be a cutoff point into the pregnancy where having an abortion is no longer an option. But outright banning abortion is idiotic in my opinion.
Kinda sad to me when I see these young children (6 and up) protesting with their parents and church about abortion when I know they probably don't fully understand the situation in depth. Brainwashing at it's finest.

What I hate about the whole anti-abortion angle is that basic steps haven't been taken to prevent abortions.
Namely, deregulating birth control.
Why is that you can buy a handgun and vodka over the counter yet have to go to the doctor to get birth control?
Why is it that you can buy chewing tobacco and tylenol that can easily harm liver but not birth control?
I want to see deregulated birth control and competition before anyone even dares scream to get rid of the option of abortion. I want 15 dollar birth control shots advertised at Walgreens next to flu shots.
I want any woman or teen or girl that is seeking out birth control to be able to walk into any #ing store and buy it and take it.
Here's a nifty study/article on sexual abuse and pregnancy.
I want any women/girls in those situations to be able to walk into a drug store and buy 10 dollar birth control.
Until those basic prevention measures are widespread like they are in so many countries, everyone needs to shut the # up.
That's my own mini rant, in addition to your rant rant.

They don't want other people to have abortions, but they themselves do nothing to help the already HUGE problem revolving around unwanted children.
