Let me state, FOR THE RECORD, that I am 100% AGAINST all FORCED abortions.
Furthermore, let me say , ANYONE forcing a WOMAN to undergo an ABORTON, against her will, should be PERSECUTED.
I FIRMLY BELIEVE that every fetus MUST be REQUIRED to give it's FULL CONSENT before being born.
Until such time we can FULLY INFORM said fetuses, of what is in store for them,
ABORTION is really, one of the few 'OPT OUTs' for those fetusi who choose against BIRTH.
For the sake of FUTURE fetuses, we MUST protect , safe , legal ABORTIONs for all. Amen.
