14. Well I'm confused too

I don't understand what you mean by "volitional" in the same paragraph as "devoutly" pro-life. I don't want women to have to choose abortion either, but I don't want to take that choice away from them. Be advised that many pro-lifers support a "personhood" amendment that would outlaw all abortions and many forms of birth control. The Ryan/Akins wording would also impose 14th Amendment rights on an unborn fetus at conception. This would criminalize abortion and make it murder as well as taking away additional choices for women. If I were counselling women in their decision, I would help them explore options, in the hope that adoption would be possible, but many circumstances just make that impossible. If all you mean is that you would try to help women find ways to have children in a responsible way and would provide help after the birth, then I would understand, but you are not really clarifying your opinion.
