Saddest truth of all

I wonder at the women who scream so loudly that they want the right to do whatever they want with their bodies.

I, too, want to do what I want to do, but what happened to having responsibility for our actions?

With so many different options for birth control, why is there such a demand for abortion? If a woman becomes pregnant and doesn’t want the baby, why does that take more than five months?

Women are upset that with the new restrictions some abortion clinics will be closed and clients will be unable to get healthcare. Why wouldn’t the clinics remain open to provide healthcare without abortions? Obviously the argument is about money, not women’s rights.

What happens if the woman doesn’t want the baby, but the father does? Does he have no rights?

The sad truth is that whether it’s a baby or fetus is defined by whether it is wanted.
