Stand up for women

It is important that we stand up for the rights of women and mothers to decide how their body is going to handle having or not having a child.

I believe in abortion because, just like a gay issue, a person has a right to control their own body. They have a right to make a decision whom they love; they have a right to make a decision of their own freedom.

It is not the right of the state to tell people what to do, how to live their lifestyle, or whether or not they have to have a baby.

It should be the right of the mother to make that decision.
