Yes! Barring any unforeseen obstacles to the pro-choice agenda, abortion will soon be the law of the land!
Thou shalt not kill.

Fetus? What fetus? It's only an insignificant lump of flesh.
Thou shalt not kill.

How dare you try to impose your religious views on us! Women have the final say regarding their bodies. We are
pro-choice and we vote!
Thou shalt not kill.

What's the big deal? If a woman wants to terminate her pregnancy in the privacy of her own home, how does that concern you? It's not hurting anybody.
Thou shalt not kill.

You anti-abortionists are hypocrites. You worry about one small matter while neglecting more critical issues such as social justice, global warming, the economy, world hunger, and the environment.
Thou shalt not kill.

Trying to persuade women entering abortion clinics to reconsider their decisions via sidewalk counseling, banners and pamphlets amounts to no less than harassment, intimidation and a hate crime.
Thou shalt not kill.

Sure, Planned Parenthood has clinics all over the place, and they make millions of dollars a year. PP also provides jobs to thousands of people, thus helping to bolster the economy. Who in their right mind would want to shut them down?
Thou shalt not kill.

Anyone who opposes the government's support and funding of abortion is un- American. Those in power are doing their best to heal the earth and preserve its natural resources through legitimate population control.
Thou shalt not kill.

There is nothing wrong with performing abortions. It is no different than the "supply and demand" mentality regarding prostitution, alcohol and drugs. Besides, it's just good business.
Thou shalt not kill.

Come on, you don't really believe that right wing propaganda about the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death, do you?
Thou shalt not kill.

Contraception and abortion go hand-in-hand. They both affirm a woman's individuality and constitutional right to choose, while holding her best interests at heart.
Thou shalt not kill.

Abortion clinics provide women with professional counseling and a sympathetic bedside manner to help them feel better after their procedure.  Heck, many even offer women free bus fare to see them safely home. What more do you want?
Thou shalt not kill.

The pro-life movement needs to pull its collective head out of the sand. There is no way this country will revert to the dark times of back alley abortions using rusty coat hangers.
Thou shalt not kill.

Religion and morality have no right interfering with the abortion industry's politics and business practices. Would you want them telling you what to do?
Thou shalt not kill.

Abortions are performed in a non-violent and non-threatening manner.  They take place in sanitized, state of the art clinics and hospitals, and under a doctor's tender and loving care. Therefore, they cannot be bad for women.
Thou shalt not kill.

An unwanted and unplanned pregnancy places a very heavy burden on women's health, and threatens their careers, reputations, and social lifestyles.
Thou shalt not kill.

Abortion should be mandatory in cases of rape because of the incalculable mental, physical, emotional and psychological damage done to women.
Thou shalt not kill.

Abortion is legal in other countries, so why not here as well? It's better than dealing with overcrowded orphanages and unwanted children taxing the welfare system.
Thou shalt not kill.

No woman should be subjected to judgement, discrimination or prejudice because of her freedom to choose an abortion. That is a sacred and privileged communication between her and her physician, and no one has a right to violate it.
Thou shalt not kill.

Only radical Christians would dare label abortionists and their work as something evil. Abortion providers are tax payers and law abiding citizens just like everyone else. In fact, many of them work for peace, support both the arts and the symphony, and volunteer their time at homeless shelters and soup kitchens.
Thou shalt not kill.

Stop trying to rock the boat and disrupt the status quo. Abortion is a popular and acceptable part of life, and accurately represents the will of the people. Leave well enough alone!
Thou shalt not kill.

Women are only responsible to themselves, their families, and their inner consciences. If there is a Deity, then surely s/he understands the trauma of a desperate woman seeking an abortion.
Thou shalt not kill.

So what if I perform abortions? I'm still a good person who cares about plants, animals and nature. What could your God ever say to convince me in this life that I will not go directly to Heaven when I die?
Thou shalt not kill.
