  • This is sick, legalize abortion for what????? If there’s a genuine reason for that, that’s when it’s life threatening, if not it’s going to encourage girls to start wayward living.

  • Whether they legalize it or not, people do it daily. Some things are inevitable rain, tax and abortion. Not that I am in support but there are things one can’t stop from happening.
