cjb: "Isn't terminating a life, actually the attack on reproductive rights?"

Maybe in an alternate universe where up is down and left is right.

But in THIS universe a woman's right to contraception is her right with the advice and guidance of her doctors and not that of the government.

And her right to an abortion is also her right with the advice and guidance of her doctors and not that of the government.

And the reasons for that are clear to all sentient human beings who have a conscience:

1) only she knows if she used birth control that failed to work - only she knows if she can provide a safe environment for raising a child - only she knows if there is a supportive father who will not abuse or abandon the resulting child...

2) societies which do not support a woman's reproductive rights are almost universally societies which subjugate women - throughout the Middle East, South America, Central America and Asia...

...whereever a woman's reproductive rights are not protected, women are subjugated

3) societies which do not support a woman's reproductive rights almost universally have higher levels of poverty, suffering and illness for the children throughout those societies.
