    • Firstly I’d like to say I am very pro-life and hopefully I can make you look at this subject differently. You state that, “many women get abortions because the pregnancy could cause them harm”. This an extreme case that barely ever happens. Less than 1% of all abortions was because of the danger to oneself. (Guttmacher Institute, “Facts on Induced Abortion in the United States”, August 2011, http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abortion.html Last accessed November 12, 2012) How I personally see this subject is life is life and no one has the right to take that away. You know where people go when they take away someone’s life? Jail where they have their own rights taken away. Also, What if we find life on Mars but the life we found was as tiny as a single cell organism, is that still considered life?

    • Dear Sarah:
      I am agreeing with your post “Pro Choice is the Right Choice,” because you make very good and valid points about how abortions should be the women’s choice and why they can be extremely beneficial and could potentially result in a better life for the woman and avoid a life full of hardships for both the fetus and woman. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Abortion is not murder and is beneficial to many women. ” I think this is very true because of the points you made stated that women sometimes chose to get pregnant but later on the pregnancy can be life threatening for the child and/or the mother. Another sentence that I agreed with was: “In the research that we’ve done so far, we’ve found that 45% of all pregnancies were accidents or unintended. This means that many people may not want or be able to afford the child that they would give birth to if not allowed to get an abortion.” This stood out for me because it really describes what ends up happening a lot because a women gets pregnant accidently. It’s not fair because sometimes women will still protect themselves and still get pregnant or wil; get raped. Their lives get ruined because of something that was out of their hands.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I have a blog talking about planned parenthood, abortion and new laws that people are trying to make. You covered a lot about the benefits of abortion and you really highlighted how this is something that can save many lives.

  • What NASA does is really important, and it is really interesting how NASA is one of the most important programs, and it lacks funding.

  • Nice job; this looks really nice! I think you did a really good job at putting down important information to share why you find climate change to be an important topic. I agree that it is a problem that we really need to focus on today too.

  • Hi Joseph, I think that you did a really good job of analyzing Huck Finn. I also have to commend you on the amount of quotes you used to support your analysis of Huck Finn. I think that the quotes you used were great. I’m glad you included the quote, ““I studied a minute, sort of holding my breath, and then says to myself: ‘All right then, I’l…Read More

  • Hi Shannon! I agree with you about Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain not being racist. I think the book was more of a statement against racism even though that’s something that many people debate about. Something I’d like to commend you on is your use of comparing Huck Finn to now. The connection was really interesting, I believe.
    A question that I…Read More
