21. The reason behind it is irrelevant.
What if a white woman slept with a black man, became pregnant, and wanted an abortion because she didn't want a black baby? Would you support her right to seek the abortion, even though her reason for seeking it is fundamentally racist? Do her reproductive rights and choices suddenly end because you disagree with her reason for exercising them?

No woman should ever have to carry a child she does not want. Her reasons for not wanting it are irrelevant, because supporting ANY other position means supporting the idea that women should be FORCED to carry babies against their will. You either support free choice, or you don't.
