    i'm not trying to judge or condemn in any way, but I've always wondered how people can just take it upon themselves to have the right to take away the life of someone else who has no power to defend themselves?
    Isn't this similar to animals in slaughter houses though? They have no power to defend themselves and are killed in masses everyday. That, for me, seems worse that a bunch of cells, when the termination happens in the early stages.

    I believe pro-lifers are entitled to their opinion and can voice them freely. But standing outside abortion clinics where the women going through with terminations are probably traumatised and emotionally vulnerable already is not the place for it.

    not necessarily as 'that bunch of cells' has the potential for life, just like you and me.

    Alive =/= a chance that something might be alive in the future.
