A picture of a young man holding a 24-word sign is putting new meaning on the word “choice” in a simple, yet profound, pro-life image that is popping up on sites across the Internet.
“Abortion has never been about ‘choice’ … It’s about escaping the consequences of your choice by taking all the choices away from another human being,” reads the hand-lettered sign.
“This guy’s sign perfectly sums up what these folks really want,” wrote Michael Cantrell.

“Pro-Abortion supports constantly yak on and on about standing up for abortion rights because they want women to have ‘choices,’ and they don’t want some poor young girl to be ‘punished’ with a baby — our righteously moronic president said that last one — but let’s be real, that’s not what they’re fighting for,” he added.
Other commentators have echoed his thoughts.
“The ones who believe in ‘choices’ truly believe in doing whatever they want without any consequences. Adult actions come with adult responsibilities, and if you choose to engage in adult actions safely — or not at all — you won’t have to ‘choose’ to murder a child,” wrote Brittany Soares.

The sign comes after a renewed fury of debate over abortion in America and the role of leading abortion provider Planned Parenthood after the Center for Medical Progress released videos that show Planned Parenthood physicians discussing the prices of fetal body parts.
A May 2015 poll on abortion found that fifty-one percent of respondents said it should be legal only under certain circumstances. Nineteen percent said abortion should be illegal in all circumstances.
