Atheist: Do you think Christians that protest outside of women s clinics?
Do you think some of the Christians protesting have never been pregnant and one day they do face an unplanned pregnancy and then have an abortion?
Do you think some of the women protesting take birth control even though the church says not to?
Do you think some of the men protesting masturbate?
Do you think they are hypocrites?

I think people should stop telling other people what they can and can't do with their own bodies and get on with their own sad little lives.

If "they" don't believe then that is their choice but they have no right to impose their beliefs upon others.

The primary purpose of women's clinics is to manage gynaecological problems and provide contraceptive education and advice. Most of them also arrange or conduct legal abortions for women who want or need them.
Of course the protesters are hypocrites. They should be applauding the clinics for providing contraceptive advice and should be actively encouraging women to use contraception. The more contraception being used, the fewer abortions are necessary.They don't do either but insist on teaching abstinence only to young people as a method of avoiding pregnancy. Such a policy fails miserably. The anti-abortionists are not so much anti-abortion as anti-sex and see pregnancy as god's punishment for girls who have non-marital sex.
If they genuinely believed that every fertilised ovum was a human being, they would have a problem with natural abortions. More than 50% of fertilised ova fail to implant on the uterus or do so and abort shortly afterwards. These zygotes (human beings if you like) are deposited on sanitary products and end up in sewers, landfill or, occasionally, furnaces. What are the anti-abortionists going to do about it? The number of medical abortions is a drop in the ocean compared with the natural ones.
I suggest they make it compulsory for all women to drop their sanitary products off at a collection centre, the local church perhaps, where they will be microscopically examined for fertilised ova and those that have them can be given proper funerals. Alternatively, collect all the sanitary products and hold mass funerals for all of them without examination. You would need to organise funeral services in all religions as you would not know which was the correct one for each zygote.

I suspect some of the women and men who protest have had unwanted pregnancies and some women probably had an abortion. Just regret it and so they speak out against it.

Since the majority of abortions are performed on Christian women, yes they are hypocrites.

They have never seen a 9 year old girl raped so harsh to destroy any hope of future child.
Then there is a 10 year old girl from England ( Notts ) raped in most outrageous kind ( can there be a measurement of pain ) ?
Pregnant alone and with such kindly feeling not borne of her years deciding she cannot keep the baby, for the life longed of pain is worse than cruel.
To judge said would be of a fool.
