Being pro-choice is not about pushing your beliefs or values onto others. Those who believe women and their doctors should choose whether ending a pregnancy is the right choice know that there are those who would never make this choice and respect that. The pro-choice movement is about acknowledging that your beliefs have no place in dictating the actions of others. It is about recognizing that for some people and some situations, abortion is the right choice. Individuals themselves hold a unique and expert understanding of their lives and bodies and, as women, should have the right to choose their own destiny.

It has been proven that criminalizing abortion further pushes women into illegal practices. For example, in countries around the world where it is still illegal, approximately 68,000 women die each year from unsafe abortions. The practice of illegal abortions can result in severe, if not fatal, consequences, including perforation of the uterus, cervical, wounds, infection, sepsis, and retained placentas amongst others. However, when undertaken by qualified health professionals, abortions are one of the safest medical procedures to exist. (WHO)
Everyone has a right to bodily autonomy, and to be able to make their own decisions about whatever or not they wish to bring a pregnancy full term. However, it is a discussion that often splits the nation. For example, a study in America found that 48% of Americans are pro-choice, and 48% are pro-life. In contrast, in the UK, 76% of all adults are pro-choice. (Pew Research)
