    we might just see the rate go down, as those same clinics that offer abortion as a family planning and health service also tend to offer other services available to avoid the necessity of abortion.

    I agree that numbers should not be the priority, but I admit to having a emotional reaction to the millions of abortions noted in this diary.

      If we were discussing the millions of Galls Stone operations performed would you have an emotional reaction? If you can accept the fact that there is absolutely to harm or killing associated to abortions then you can better understand the truth related to having one.

        if you meant no harm, rather than to harm, I disagree, and I think many others do as well. My advice is not to tell others what abortion is or is not, or why one should feel a certain way or not, but ask for tolerance and understanding of how you and other supporters feel. then ask for support.
