No morality in opposing abortion

- +

Let me be direct. When you say you are against abortion because it's sinful, it's not your morality talking, it's your misogyny. 

In other words, you're not driven by compassion, but by a hate for women who you think stray from the "good girl" norms.

Sorry for being blunt. But when nearly 1,000 women in Thailand die each year because your opposition has been preventing them from having access to safe abortions, it's necessary to ask why you're allowing your righteousness to take other people's lives.
