I have never figured out why anyone thought they possessed the right to tell a woman of legal age or the guardian of a minor what they can or cannot do with their body. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to make a choice on whether or not a pregnancy should be terminated. This is a personal decision that should only be made by the person that will have to live with it the rest of their life.
States could pass laws that would determine at what point one would be terminating a life but beyond that they or any other group should have no choice in the matter unless there were extenuating circumstances.
Probably, in the near future, there is going to come a time when prolife and prochoice are going to find it necessary to coexist.
