Will this label change make medication abortion more feasible in states facing medically unnecessary, politically motivated restrictions or will politicians with the goal of limiting abortion access just continue to find new ways to restrict access? Time will tell, but this new action from the Food and Drug Administration seems to be a step in the right direction.

The Donald has a point: if abortion ought to be illegal, why shouldn't the woman who get one be guilty of a crime? And why hasn't the pro-life movement advocated for punishing a woman who gets an abortion?

This entire "war" is designed to impose a Christian morality on all citizens. Non-religious employees of quasi-religious organizations have no rights, according to the religious soldiers. If religious conservatives had their way, a Christian morality about abortion would be imposed on all women.

Trump vs Matthews; Killing Roe vs Wade

Framing the argument as pro-life and pro-choice still misses the heart of it. Do we want a government enforcing something that is only called "murder" by some religions and not others, never mind the rights of atheists and agnostics? Do we want Sharia? Do we want the Morality Police?

I would like to thank Donald Trump. While his race to the White House requires the collapse of civil discourse and rewards breaking what had been seen to be the limits of polite speech, he has, at least, revealed a LIE long told by the anti-abortion/"pro-life" movement.

On 43rd Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, This Is What It Means To Be Pro-life

The current conversation surrounding abortion is, by its very foundation, futile. We define ourselves as either "pro-life" or "pro-choice," but never as "anti-life" or "anti-choice." The fact of the matter remains, no one is really anti either of these things.

From a strictly biblical point of view, being born on Earth is a test. All our actions will eventually be judged by an omnipotent God who will determine whether we go to heaven or hell. Our deeds, sinful or not, determine where we spend eternity.

The shooter had help. He had help from an entire movement that has carelessly labeled abortion as "murder" and "baby-killing." Killing abortion providers flows logically from the moment you call abortion "murder" and this labeling has to stop. Now.

The problem is that there aren't enough people who take carbon emissions and its impact on the future of our planet seriously. I have long found this tragic, but now it's tragic and increasingly inexcusable. The data is clear. The images are current and vivid. The situation is dire.

When I walked back into the bathroom of my recently purged and lonesome Brooklyn apartment and saw my intuition confirmed with the word "pregnant" in the window of the digital test, I didn't cry or panic. I sat down and called my mom and then my soon-to-be ex-husband to calmly tell them both that I would be scheduling an abortion for the next week.
