"Many young women who are or want to be feminists get abortion, I think, to prove that they are serious about women's issues concerning the right to control their own bodies"
Again, I completely understand and respect your passionate pro-life belief even though I am equally passionate about the right to CHOOSE. However, I still have SERIOUS doubts that you really think that women get abortions to PROVE A POINT. You have admitted yourself that the decision is very complex and difficult. Do you honestly believe that through that difficult decision making process a woman is even considering the effect her very personal decision will have on the very public forum of feminism??? Seriously.
