First off, the majority isn’t against abortion. Secondly, if men don’t like abortion, you all need to stop causing them. Third, being pregnant is a MAJOR medical condition that requires an ENTIRE BRANCH OF MEDICINE devoted to it. Pregnancy and childbirth still kills women. Finally, women are citizens with rights, and families, and minds, and futures, and careers and lives to live. Embryos and fetuses aren’t citizens & have no idea they exist. So the procedure needs to be between the pregnant person and the medical establishment and not anyone else. You don’t have the right to have any say over anyone else’s pregnancy, miscarriage or abortion.
