True. For abortions, I gather that there is an issue besides whether the woman wants to have the baby or not - whether the developing fetus, with the potential to become a person, has the same rights as a human. To say that one person has no right to exist simply because you don't want the hassle of having them is an extremely selfish and self-righteous thing to do. That is what I believe the core argument of pro-life/pro-choice is, not to force women to have children. (Abstinence and birth control options are always there) There's also the entire religion dimension as well. Next off: have complete control over my own reproduction without being subjected to criticism at best, hateful comments at worst by both pro-life advocates, and people who think that all women should have children This is what's under debate. What right do you have to tell people what they should and shouldn't say? If a man make some sexist crack, or something that even sounds like it could be remotely sexist, should he be thrown in jail or fined because of it? Better yet, what if a woman says something sexist? Do you believe she should be given the same treatment. If not, how do you expect it to be enforced?
