    • This is a very uplifting and happy post Emma! I have had many of my family friends receive breast cancer, and it seems that all of them have beaten it. What about other cancers? Is the mortality rate improving for them too? Great post!

    • Emma,
      This is amazing, wonderful news! I didn’t know any of this and your post really excited me! Thank you for taking the time to post this on youth voices because if you hadn’t I wouldn’t have learned this exciting information for women. Keep up the awesome work, and keep researching deeper into this topic because I feel like you could go really deep into this and maybe even make something of it!

    • I really enjoyed reading this! It is great to hear that more and more people are surviving breast cancer. I found it interesting that the survival rate isn’t increasing because of preventative measures, it’s because of improvement in treatments. I hope we will see progress like this for other cancers as well!

    • The reason the abortion should be illegal is not because of religious beliefs, but because it is murder. If a pregnant woman is killed, it is a double homicide because the baby would die as well. But once a woman thinks of her own comfort over the life of her child, we are just okay with her killing it. I am all for women’s rights, that is why i don’ t want to kill little women before they are given a chance for life.

      • Blake,
        I am pro-choice but am perfectly fine with people stating their opinions on abortions especially since it is such a hot topic in society today. However, one comment you said I MUST comment on. “But once a woman thinks of her own comfort over the life of her child, we are just okay with her killing it.” I find this extremely disturbing. How could you possibly choose one life over another. There are a lot of pregnancies terminated because it is a threat to the mother’s life(health reasons) or the woman was raped, etc. No one is “okay” with an abortion. If for one second you think a woman goes into an abortion clinic smiling and leaving smiling you are most definitely mistaken. Pregnancies are ended for many reasons that you obviously don’t understand and need to be educated on.

    • Dear Emma,
      I am interested in your post because abortion is somewhat ignored, in my opinion. My perspective on abortion is it should be illegal. Abortion is basically killing an innocent little baby, it is very wrong. One thing you said that stands out for me is “Around 56 million abortions occur each year in the world, with a little under half done unsafely.” I think this is sad because the mother could die during this process. It is no good for anybody to get an abortion, some doctors do not know how to do procedures right. Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you talk about interesting topics. Topics that are not talked about much but are important to look into.
