A rant of my own...where would they stop? (abortion)

I keep hearing all these thumpers saying we should make abortion illegal. Their logic being, "It's taking a life, no different than a murdurer." My question is, how are they going to follow each person around and know if they terminated their pregnancies? Maybe they found a way to do it themselves. I never claimed to be the smartest person on earth, but I think making abortion illegal would be catastrophic. You would have young girls dying from back alley abortions. You would have all kinds of civil suits and legal mess. Not to mention, where does the invasion stop??? If you are going to tell me what I should do with MY OWN BODY, where do you draw the line? Are you going to arrest me for eating Doritos and cheeseburgers, because it causes high cholesterol, and eventually death? Isn't that "taking a life"? But wait, don't draw the line there, let's keep going. Let's terminate living wills! My living will states that I don't want life support if I am basically braindead and will never get better. Isn't that "taking a life", because I don't want to live that way? Where would they stop? If you want to be pro-life for your own choice, that's great, but don't try to force your opinions on the rest of us. Sorry abount ranting, this is a subject I feel very strongly about. What started this, was a girl at work that opened the subject, and starting ranting about "killing babies" and wouldn't shut the hell up. This was my argument to her.

I guess they think we should all do like the Duggars, and have 18 kids. Holy crap, what an overpopulated world THAT would be!!! Preaching abstenence is all fine and good, but it's just not a reality when it comes to teens these days.
