Abortion is a fantastic thing. Hallelujah for the choice of safe, legal abortion!
I am never offended when someone calls me "pro-abortion" because that is what I am. Abortion has given so many women their lives back. It, along with contraception, has allowed them to control the size of their families and the spacing of their births. It has allowed them to delay childbearing until they are physically, emotionally, and financially stable. It has allowed them to complete their education and career goals. It has allowed them to remain childfree when that is their desire. It has allowed them to free themselves (and any children they may have) from abusive men. And on and on and on.
And the evidence that abortion is a good thing is on my side. The countries with the best pregnancy outcomes, the lowest infant mortality rates, the lowest maternal mortality rates, the highest literacy rates, the lowest rates of poverty (the vast majority of the poor in the developed and developing world are single mothers and their children), the lowest rates of teen pregnancy, and even the lowest rates of abortion are all countries that not only allow abortion but publicly fund them.
