    Each person has a different and unique reason to be pro-choice. Someone’s own body is their property, and no one can use it without permission or consent. I am pro-choice because I don't think there is any reasoning why a woman should have to face all the ramifications or consequences from something that she did not do alone. If a guy can get a woman pregnant and then flee, there is no reason why she should be the only one responsible for everything. Having more options puts a woman on a more equal

    Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life Abortion. The word alone has the power to make a room go still. The popular debate topic has a reputation of provoking aggression no matter where it is mentioned due to its strong relation to people’s rights and ethics, but does it really need further deliberation?
