You don’t have to love abortion. You can dislike it. Maybe it even makes you sad. The way you view abortion is up to you. If you don’t like abortion, you can advocate for proper sex education, access to birth control and other things that have been shown to lower unplanned pregnancies. You don’t have to like abortion.

But what you can’t do is disrespect somebody for having an abortion. You can’t take away that choice from women because you don’t like it. Your emotions are not somebody else’s responsibility. Your emotions aren’t more important than anyone else’s bodily autonomy. You don’t have to like abortion, but you have to respect other people’s rights and that includes the right to safe, accessible, abortion.

Listen

If your argument for abortion is


-I can’t afford a baby


-I shouldn’t be forced to have it


-it will ruin my life/body


-I don’t want to be a parent


-putting up for adoption isn’t free


-I made/have no money


-my body my choice


-I really don’t want to have a baby

-I don’t want to be pregnant


-stop taking my rights


Then that’s okay and we completely support you because those are all 100% very valid.
