What women's rights REALLY are.

Too often the term for women's rights involves taking away from a woman. Why is it against our rights to make things safer? For all women? Our healthcare rights does not include bypassing saftey. An abortion at any stage is a highly invasive procedure. Anyone who says otherwise, either has not had one, or stands to make some sort of profit from them. Going against a woman's body's natural order can be a great risk to it. Why should we give up making that as safe as possible?


Have you ever researched how often women get abortions, and then regret their decision? Giving them a chance to make the MOST informed decision is vital. How is this taking away from them? Too often we make rash decisions because we don't have a chance to think it through a little more clearly. Giving a woman a safe and more complete informed decision is an important right... every woman's right.
