See, morality also has temporal benefits… :shrug:




So sad. Further reason why women shouldn’t have abortions and why it should be mandatory that all women are told prior to having an abortion about the potential risks to their own mental health if they go ahead with it.


While I agree with you and others on the pro-life side, I can guarantee you that any mental health problems will be blamed on the hate speech of pro-lifers who cause guilt by telling people that abortion is wrong and is, in fact, murder. Rejecting truth has been very popular since the very first time it happened in the Garden of Eden.
