For some time now, young women have been taught to love themselves and do what is right for themselves and only themselves. It is this same manner of thinking that is parallelled in pro choice. "it is the woman's body, it is the woman's choice." and "she needs to do waht is right for her"
If you come up against an arguement like this, just think. Have you ever met a woman who has had a baby that she gave up for adoption and wished she aborted it? I know I haven't. Have you ever met a woman who has had an abortion that is still racked with guilt? I know I have met several. In fact I dont know anyone that feels positive about this choice.
We need to remember yes, it is the woman's body. It is the woman's life, and how will that woman feel when she looks in the mirror if she does something like abortion? What are the long term consequences for this? I think we all know, and that is why we are pro life.
