Abortion is always hot-button topic in the United States, but with the 2012 presidential election just around the corner, the issue has never felt more timely.

We love voicing our opinions on the matter and so do our favorite MTV stars (God bless the First Amendment and Twitter, right?). Teen Mom's Catelynn Lowell recently revealed her stance, and now, 16 and Pregnant's Mackenzie Douthit is following in her footsteps.

"You can kill an unborn child, but if you crush an eagles egg your in trouble... whaahhh??? #messedupworld," she tweeted on Sept. 3.

Mackenzie is referring to federal laws that protect the Bald Eagle, a species that was endangered for many years as a result of hunting, poisoning, and toxic pesticides. Although Bald Eagles no longer face extinction, Americans continue to honor the laws that serve to protect the sacred bird. And Mackenzie is correct about the repercussions — harming a Bald Eagle nest can result in a hefty fine with the possibility of jail time.

But let's talk about Mackenzie's other implication — that destroying Bald Eagle eggs is comparable to abortion. Do you think she makes a valid point? Share your thoughts on this uber-controversial issue below!
