Al Sharpton on Abortion

Women can choose about their life and their body

Q: How do you feel about abortion?

A: I think women should have the right to choose what happens to their own life, body and choices.

Abortion is wrong, but let women choose

My religion says that abortion is wrong. And while I may believe that life begins when the sperm meets the egg, and that only God should decide whether to take a life, I will not stand in the way of a womanís right to choose. If women do not have a right to choose, then itís a civil rights violation.

His Supreme Court nominees will allow right to choose

I would only appoint justices to the Supreme Court who are for women having the right to choose whether or not they will have an abortion. Now, I can believe something without having to impose my beliefs on others. Thatís true separation of church and state.
