Do you think women should have the right to choose to have an abortion?

“I just don’t think it’s right for a person to kill a human being. Even though they aren’t born yet, they have hearts. They’re human.”

Joey Gaska
Retail

“They should have that right absolutely, no question.”

Joe Barentine
Attorney

“I don’t think they should get an abortion. The baby has a soul, just like we do. They’re just not on the outside yet.”

Ricky Douthit
Student

“Yes. My mother’s sister tried to self-abort in the 1930s in a bathtub-style abortion and killed herself. As opposed as I am personally to abortion, it should be legal.”

Richard Longstaff
Store owner

“I am a strong advocate of women’s rights even those who haven’t been born yet. I’m opposed to abortion on multiple levels, including psychological and biological ones.”

Daniel Herlihy
Medical doctor

“I just think it’s a woman’s choice. It’s our right. It’s our body.”

Karen Daly
Homemaker

“Yes. When it comes down to it, we’re the ones who are going to have to take care of the baby.”

Jennifer Donahue
Assistant Manager

“Yes and no. Under some circumstances, such as being raped or being too young I think it’s OK. For the others, they knew the consequences when they opened their legs.”

Shannon Risher
Marketing director

“No. I can’t kill you. Why should you be able to kill a baby. It’s a human being from the moment of conception.”

Viola Shipman
Bartender

“Yes. A woman’s body is her temple and it’s her choice about what to do with it. No one should have control over another person’s body men or women.”

Jamillah Shamsideen
Portfolio manager

Have a suggestion for a question you’d like us to ask?
