If you’re against abortion, don’t have one.
Better yet, support education about and funding for birth control. Abortion rates are currently as low as they have been since Roe v. Wade. And, no, it’s not because you and your cronies are standing outside the abortion clinic scaring the shit out of some teenagers and low-income women that are just going in for a pelvic exam and a birth control implant. It’s because there are people inside that building, caring for the health and well-being of these women.
Nobody wants to have an abortion. It is not a pleasant experience. Given the choice, any woman would rather have access to birth control than to have an unwanted pregnancy.
If you support a woman’s right to have access to reproductive healthcare and education about birth control, then you are doing your part to reduce the number of abortions performed. The pro-choice vs. anti-choice issue becomes moot. Because women have control and access before they even have intercourse.

But, if you are anti-choice, and anti-sex education, and anti-providing affordable (free?) contraceptives, then you are effectively putting women in the position to have to make a decision to abort a pregnancy. You are supporting abortion.
Nobody wants to have an abortion.
It is puzzling to me that you in the anti-choice camp are also anti-government-supported healthcare. It seems you want to populate the world with unwanted babies that don’t have adequate care?
I may, in the future, rethink my stance on a abortion if I knew that every single one of these babies born would thrive and flourish. But in this society, they are not.
