    Pro life. What is really a life worth if I can’t decide my life for myself? Are you simply assuming that I have not, as a human being, gained knowledge throughout my life, delt with difficulties, recovered, educated myself so I can NOT make a rational and MATURE decision what is best for ME, my family, my future AND the unborn child that is UNWANTED? You are taking away my right to live MY life. Is a fetus, that can’t decide or make decisions rights more important then a human being who made a decision that she can’t give a child all the love and care it deserves?

No parent should ever get the chance to decide that a child’s life will not be worth living, regardless of the circumstances, as I believe the parents do not possess the rights to make such a decision. Obviously, much of the political establishment begs to differ…
