you have a right to your opinion, and i can respect that, but a woman getting an abortion is not going to affect your life in any way. saying a teenager can’t get an abortion because your own mother was a teenager when she had you is no valid reason. saying someone’s financial status is no excuse because you have seen worst is not good enough. making someone feel horrible for the course of action they have decided to take does not make you a good person.
Should we stand by in silence when human atrocities occur just because they do not affect our lives in any way?
Should I stand silent when genocide occurs on the other side of the planet because it does not affect my life in any way?
Should I stand silent if I witness a woman being raped because it does not affect my life in any way?
Should I stand silent when children are molested because it does not affect my life in any way?
I can assure you that I will never stand silent so long as the atrocity of human abortion continues to stain our collective humanity.
