“In my world, you don’t get to call yourself “pro-life” and be against common-sense gun control — like banning public access to the kind of semiautomatic assault rifle, designed for warfare, that was used recently in a Colorado theater. You don’t get to call yourself “pro-life” and want to shut down the Environmental Protection Agency, which ensures clean air and clean water, prevents childhood asthma, preserves biodiversity and combats climate change that could disrupt every life on the planet. You don’t get to call yourself “pro-life” and oppose programs like Head Start that provide basic education, health and nutrition for the most disadvantaged children...The term “pro-life” should be a shorthand for respect for the sanctity of life. But I will not let that label apply to people for whom sanctity for life begins at conception and ends at birth. What about the rest of life? Respect for the sanctity of life, if you believe that it begins at conception, cannot end at birth.”
Thomas L. Friedman

Neal Shusterman
“I don't know what happens to our consciousness when we're unwound," says Connor. "I don't even know when that consciousness starts. But I do know this." He pauses to make sure all of them are listening. "We have a right to our lives!"
The kids go wild.
"We have a right to choose what happens to our bodies!"
The cheers reach fever pitch.
"We deserve a world where both those things are possible— and it's our job to help make that world.”
Neal Shusterman, Unwind

Pope Benedict XVI
“The fundamental human right, the presupposition of every other right, is the right to life itself. This is true of life from the moment of conception until its natural end. Abortion, consequently, cannot be a human right -- it is the very opposite. It is a deep wound in society.”
Pope Benedict XVI

Camille Paglia
“My argument has always been that nature has a master plan pushing every species toward procreation and that it is our right and even obligation as rational human beings to defy nature's fascism. Nature herself is a mass murderer, making casual, cruel experiments and condemning 10,000 to die so that one more fit will live and thrive.”
Camille Paglia

Caitlin Moran
“But I am, personally, not a gambler. I wouldn’t spend £1 on the lottery, let alone take a punt on a pregnancy. The stakes are far, far too high. I can’t agree with a society that would force me to bet on how much I could love under duress.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman

“Women deserve better than propaganda and lies to get into panties. Propaganda and lies to get into office, to get out of court, to get out of paying child support. Get the fuck out of our decisions and give us back our voice. Women deserve better; women deserve choice.”
Sonya Renee Taylor

“[] it is unthinkable to allow complete strangers, whether individually or collectively as state legislators or others in government, to make such personal decisions for someone else.”
Sarah Weddington, A Question of Choice

Gloria Steinem
“Suddenly, I began to wonder: If one in three or four American women had an abortion at some time in her life--a common statistical estimate, even in those days of illegality-- then why, WHY should this single surgical procedure be deemed a criminal act?”
Gloria Steinem, The Choices We Made: Twenty-Five Women and Men Speak Out About Abortion

“You can't really protect women or men from their choices, so let them
have their own lives and trust the process. Given the history of
society's efforts to control women's sexuality and reproduction, this
remained a revolutionary idea. No wonder it disturbed and frightened
some people so deeply.”
Stephen Singular, The Wichita Divide: The Murder of Dr. George Tiller, the Battle over Abortion, and the New American Civil War

Gayle Forman
“Mom was adamantly pro-choice. She had a bumper sticker on the car that read If you can't trust me with a choice, how can you trust me with a child? But in her case the choice was to keep me.”
Gayle Forman, If I Stay

“It is time to renew the battle for reproductive rights. We have been outmaneuvered, outspent, outpostured, and outvoted by a group of single-issue activists. It has taken them nearly two decades to turn back the principles of Roe. Let's make sure it takes us a shorter time to replace protection for reproductive choice.”
Sarah Weddington, A Question of Choice

George W. Bush
“Adoption was such a positive alternative to abortion, a way to save one life and brighten two more: those of the adoptive parents.”
George W. Bush, Decision Points

“As with Randall Terry and other anti-abortion leaders, women simply
did not figure into [Roeder's] equations. If all the abortion
providers were dead, the problem would be solved, and he'd never have
to think about those who sought to end their pregnancies through
illegal or dangerous means.”
Stephen Singular, The Wichita Divide: The Murder of Dr. George Tiller, the Battle over Abortion, and the New American Civil War

“Roe has been a good friend, one women could count on when in trouble. We are on uncertain ground after Casey. Women, justifiably, feel vulnerable at a time so many years after their journey for reproductive freedom started.”
Sarah Weddington, A Question of Choice

Alicen Grey
“No, I'm the human here. I'm the life at stake. I'm the one with fingernails, who feels pain.

Me.”
Alicen Grey

Rebecca   Warner
“How can we talk about the rights of a fertilized egg when we don't care enough to see that every child is born into a stable, safe, and nurturing environment?”
Rebecca Warner, Moral Infidelity

Hillary Rodham Clinton
“I have met thousands and thousands of pro-choice men and women. I have never met anyone who is pro-abortion.”
Hillary Rodham Clinton

Christopher Hitchens
“The anti-life of [Jerry Falwell] proves only one thing: that you can get away with the most extraordinary offenses to morality and truth in this country if you'll just get yourself called Reverend. People like that should be out in the street, shouting and hollering with a cardboard sign and selling pencils from a cup.”
Christopher Hitchens

Katha Pollitt
“Pregnancy and childbirth are not only physical and medical experiences, after all. They are also social experiences that, in modern America, just as when abortion was criminalized in the 1870s, serve to restrict women's ability to participate in society on equal footing with men.”
Katha Pollitt

Carl Safina
“There appears no assurance that in the times of our own grandchildren the world will contain viable populations of wild African Lions, Tigers, Polar Bears, Emperor Penguins, gorillas, or coral reefs. These are the animals expectant parents pain on nursery room walls. Their implied wish: to welcome precious new life in to a world endowed with the magnificence and delight and fright of companions we have traveled with since the beginning. Some people debate the “rights of the unborn” as though a human life begins at conception but we don’t need to concern ourselves with its prospects after birth. Raging over the divine sanctity of anyone else’s pregnancy is a little overwrought and a little too easy when nature itself terminates one out of four by the sixth week. There are much bigger, more compassionate pro-life fish to fry. Passing along a world that can allow real children to flourish and the cavalcade of generations to unfold, and the least to live in modest dignity would be the biggest pro-life enterprise we could undertake.”
Carl Safina, The View from Lazy Point: A Natural Year in an Unnatural World

Patricia Lockwood
“My father despises cats. He believes them to be Democrats. He considers them to be little mean hillary clintons covered all over with feminist legfur. Cats would have abortions, if given half a chance. Cats would have abortions for fun. Consequently our own soft sinner, a soulful snowshoe named Alice, will stay shut in the bedroom upstairs, padding back and forth on cashmere paws, campaigning for equal pay, educating me about my reproductive system, and generally plotting the downfall of all men.”
Patricia Lockwood, Priestdaddy: A Memoir

“I want a future abortion conversation known for its openness, respect and empathy, so instead of generating more heat, anger and conflict, I practice pro-voice.”
Aspen Baker, Pro-Voice: How to Keep Listening When the World Wants a Fight

Deborah Meyler
“Aristotle didn't have a problem with abortion," she says.
"Oh, well, good, that's a comfort," I say.”
Deborah Meyler, The Bookstore

Rush Limbaugh
“I'm pro-choice. But I hope that choice will be life.”
Rush Limbaugh, The Way Things Ought to Be

“There is no such thing as illegitimate children, only illegitimate parents.”
J.Adam Snyder

Chester Brown
“Feminists have accepted that choice is possible when it comes to a different, difficult subject: abortion. The feminist position (and I agree with it) is that women own their bodies and therefore each woman has the right to choose to get an abortion if she gets pregnant. This is called being "pro-choice". Feminists should be consistent on the subject of choice. If a woman has the right to choose to have an abortion, she should also have the right to choose to have sex for money. It's her body; it's her right.”
Chester Brown, Paying for It

Scott Andrews
“If you are against abortions, don't have one.”
Scott Andrews, PiSlamistan

Quentin R. Bufogle
“The religious right is one of the most politically militant voting blocs in the country and the agenda is clear (a gun in every uterus). Time we stopped subsidizing the anti-abortion movement in the form of tax-exemptions.”
Quentin R. Bufogle, Horse Latitudes

“Many American boys that fought in WWII had been sterilized under eugenic laws passed by the the United States Supreme Court under the 1927 case of Buck v. Bell. Over 80,000 Americans would be forcibly sterilized under that legal precedent. Coincidentally, Buck v Bell is also the legal precedent cited in Roe v. Wade, the famous abortion rights case.”
A.E. Samaan, H.H. Laughlin: American Scientist, American Progressive, Nazi Collaborator

“We do not believe in murder! We believe in convenience in our careers, in our cuisine, in our kills, and in our definitions.”
Danielle Valenilla, Fun Dip & Other Misfortunes
