Abortions for some, miniature American flags for others.

Abortion, the termination of a developing human life while it is still in the womb, is one of the most controversial and polarizing issues in American society. There is a bitter fucking culture war being fought over whether or not abortions should be fucking legal or not, one that has been going on since the 1960s. There are two main factions in this culture war, and they are summarized below.

pro-murder: Someone who is pro-murder believes that it is universally acceptable to kill others, especially babies, without so much as a second thought. They believe that invading armies should be able to stab the babies of their enemies with bayonets, Chinese couples should be able to abandon baby girls on the sides of the mountains to die, and cheerleaders who slept through health class shouldn't be held responsible for their own fucking stupidity.

anti-choice: Someone who is anti-choice believes that a woman shouldn't be allowed to choose whether or not she wants an abortion. In fact, she shouldn't be allowed to make any fucking choices whatsoever. They believe that every major decision in a woman's life should be made by her father (or the closest surviving male relative) up until marriage. After the father has picked a suitable husband, all further choices in the woman's life will be handled by him.

Personally, I think both of these positions have a little bit of good in them, but they're also both really fucking flawed. Neither one offers the fucking answer that Americans are fucking looking for. Most people don't want to see abortions completely fucking outlawed, but they don't want to see them used as a frequent substitute for birth control either. Take me, for instance. I find that I am generally pro-murder, except in cases where rape or incest are involved; I am very certain that most people agree with me. I pray to God that President Obama has the courage to appoint judges who feel the same way.

1,129,587 people have attended at least one anti-choice rally.
