Abortions are legal and necessary for some people to continue their job/education/career/standards of living. They do not consider adoption as a choice.

.../or regretted having the abortion. Negative reactions may be delayed for 10 or more years, when a woman feels with her pain and doubts all alone.
True equality for all involved with a pregnancy should also include the father’s right to choose life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for their baby, who received chromosomes from both parents. If Roe v. Wade is in the future overturned by the Supreme Court, then all decisions on abortion can be returned to the individual states.

I hope that all of you would do the same.

Conservatives that are pro-life argue that life begins at conception, while pro-choice liberals argue it does not start until actual birth, when they consider the child to be “viable.” Jerome Lejeune is a French...
