Suicide vs. Abortion - Are both informed choices?

I've always been amazed at the hypocrisy and downright contradiction when pro-aborts say that a woman who commits suicide is not in her "right mind", but that a woman who aborts her unborn baby is "a mature woman making an informed and conscientious choice whose judgment should be trusted without question".

But wait...isn't it the woman's body to do with as she pleases, even if she's only 12? Aren't we supposed to support ANY decision a woman makes, regardless of what we personally think of it? Isn't "right" and "wrong" only a matter of what each individual believes? And if so, why shouldn't every woman be able to attempt suicide and face no repurcussions when she is unsuccessful. After all, it's HER body, right? No one should be able to tell her what to do with HER body, should they? Especially the government! By that logic, I guess women should be able to freely use drugs, self-mutilate, and become prostitutes without the law "standing in the way of her personal freedom of choice". Rubbish.

I find it ironic that the abortion industry insists on discounting women's testimony of the trauma that past abortions have caused them, manifesting in Post Abortion Stress Syndrome (PASS). When the statistics are shown to them, they dismiss them by saying, "well, these women had emotional and psychological problems to begin with". So which is it? Are women who seek abortions "mature, responsible and capable women making a difficult but informed decision that is beyond reproach" or are they "mentally ill women whose psychological problems before or after an abortion are of no concern or consequence to the abortion industry"?

It is obvious to me that the abortion industry cares NOTHING for women...they only care for her money and the government subsidies that keep their bank accounts fat and happy. If you believe that the abortion industry cares about the health of women while they promote consequence free sex and fallible birth control, you probably also believe that Phillip-Morris really wants to help people quit smoking while they secretly manipulate nicotine levels in their cigarettes. It's just baloney.

And people are eating it between two slices of white bread with Miracle Whip...but they ARE starting to gag on it a little...encouraging.
