  1. I support a woman's right to choose. Why? Because, quite rightly, I am a woman and I do feel the pinch as my fellow women. Secondly it is a woman's fundamental right and above all, we were all equally created by God. Finally, we are dependable on each other. So why this slavish behavior on women? Kudos! to Global Fund for Women and all other gender activist organizations who have made our dreams come true by taking us away from the dark ages.
  2. If contraception and abortion are supposed to solve society's problems, how long do we have to wait? The solution to a crisis pregnancy is to eliminate the crisis, not the child. What about the "choice" of women who are forced to abort, like in China? There are also countless examples of women here in the USA who are coerced by their husband, boyfriend, father, etc. How is that "pro-choice"? It's pro-abortion, not pro-choice. Check this out if you think abortion is really a free choice. http://www.theunchoice.com/intro.htm
  3. I support Women's right to choose as I believe that all women should have full autonomy over their bodies. I also believe that it is a miscarriage of justice to deny access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive information and services to all women. All women/girls should be able to make healthy and informed choices regarding their S&RH & well-being.

  5. We should all support a woman's right to choose. It's her life not anyone else's and that is the reason why most of us want our freedom to choose. If your religion or religious beliefs do not concur with others, so what? It's not your decision. Everyone has to make their own decisions in this world. Women don't ask the world what education to pursue, so let women decide what's best for their physical health.
  6. A women cannot be treated as "Property" for she is a human being and civilization has progressed at least thus far where we need to differentiate between 'objects' and 'human beings'. The fact remains that by denying her right to choose whether or not to continue a pregnancy, we deny her the right to be'human'. We believe that the ability to choose is essential to women's equality, autonomy and freedom.
  7. Life is the first right we all have, without that no other rights matter!
  8. I support a woman's right to choose, because it is perhaps the only sphere of interpersonal combat within which women may unilaterally take a determinative agency that is mortally affective of Men. Hence men's pitched battle - borne no doubt as much of rank unaccustomed-ness as of sheer necessity, to wrest (..and keep...) this Power that women have all of their own, and over men, out of women's grasp.
  9. Je supporte les femmes dans toutes les décisions justes et réfléchies qu'elles ont le droit de prendre parce qu'après tout les femmes sont des humains au même titre que tous les autres personnes qui vivent sur cette terre et qu'elles ont aussi des droits conformements à la Déclarastion Universelle des Droits de l'homme.
  10. Dear, I support a womens right to control her own body. I support a womens right to make decisions about her life and her health. I want our societies to be able to support all women in their decisions about their own bodies needs and lives and self dependent. Thank you susanta
  11. Forcing a woman to have too many children is a form of oppression. Women should be given a choice to have control over their bodies because having too many babies can be detrimental to their health. They should have access to contraception and avoid unsafe abortions, especially victims of rape and those with medical problems. A married couple should discuss and agree on how many children to have, not sorely the husband’s decision. The cost of daycare is expensive and if women have more children, it means they will not be able to work as they have to stay home with the kids; thus making them financially dependent on the husband. This will deter them from owning property or having the freedom to buy what they need.
  12. Not only do I support a woman's right to choose and a woman's right to have complete control over her body, but I also demand that the state should ensure this right to women. The health services in every country should ensure that women are looked after and have the right to safe abortion if they want.

  14. I believe that every woman on this planet has the right to choose what she does with her body and her life. Only she can know what's best and right for her and she should be allowed to act accordingly.
  15. I support women rights because my mother suffered as a single parent, not having anyone to advocate for her in any case. She was abused on many occasions because of her gender. With these and many more,I decided to support women rights. Thank you, Jessica Barpaye
  16. Though I am a man but the rights of women form the centre of my heart. When I think of my mother, sister, daughter and the many women and girls whose lives are made miserable not because they fail to act but because of their gender, I thought to stop at nothing but step in for them. Though difference in gender I feel like one of them.
  17. The choice is about her life( desires, expectations and experiences). A woman should be allow to choose what she wants and not the government. I strongly support women making their own decisions no matter how judgmental it made same.
  18. I never support the choice to murder an innocent baby, not even in the case of rape or incest. A child is a child and should never be given the death penalty for a crime her parents have committed. If a person does not want her child the only morally acceptable choice is adoption.
  19. I support a woman's right to control her own body. I support a woman's right to make decisions about her life and her health. I support a woman's right to choose to be or not to be a parent. It's never really about a woman's right to choose, and it's not just about abortion, (or contraceptives). I write this because so many women of color in the U.S. and Canada (Europe, and even in Israel we see) have been forcibly sterilized or been forced (physically or through policy) to use contraceptives. Often, the reasons that women choose to abortion or even parenthood has to do with beliefs, but also about government policies that criminalize or further harm them. Or the basic need for food, housing, employment, and especially childcare. it's about reproductive justice. I want our societies to be able to support all women in their decisions about their own bodies, needs and lives
  20. A woman's right to chose isn't something debatable. People who are against it should be viewed as the puritanic products of a patriarchal society.
