For or against abortion?
« on: October 06, 2010, 01:17:32 pm »
I am against abortion because it is unjust to kill a unborn child; however, when it comes to a rape situation, i believe the victim might should have a choice.

Uugh! I can't stand the idea of abortion. There are thousands of women around in the world in need of a child because they can't have one. If there is one woman who doesn't want their child then put the child up for adoption. That's the best thing any woman can do.

In the US alone, there are an average of 120-130 THOUSAND children available for adoption every year.  (according to statistics from 2000-2006; couldn't find more recent ones http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/cb/stats_research/afcars/waiting2006.htm )  If those women want children so badly, they can adopt one of them instead.  A child shouldn't have to be a newborn to be worthy of adoption and love.

And I am for the right to abortion, though I personally wouldn't have an abortion myself unless there were extenuating circumstances.  But I wouldn't want to deny abortions to those who want them, either.  What I am most worried about though, is if the government outlaws abortions, except for rape/incest/health reasons, then later they will change it to include those as well.  (That would be a major step back for women.)  I'd rather allow others to have the freedom to do something I wouldn't do and generally disapprove of, than to chance losing freedom for the parts I do agree with.  Also, I believe that only women have the right to decide; a man should not be able to decide until they gain the ability to become pregnant and give birth themselves.

I am definitely against abortion. It is murder, against a victim that can't even defend himself/ herself. Since when does anyone have a right to take another person's life, when that person hasn't done anything wrong? In rape situations there are procedures done at hospitals that prevent conception if done within 24 hours.

i feel that women should have the right to choose what they want to do. and if there are women out there that want kids but can't have them then they should adopt. there are plenty of children out there in need of loving families. and don't be afraid to adopt older kids. people tend to look past them and they usually age out of the system with no place to go.

This is a very touchy topic but yes, I agree. If it's a case of rape or incest, absolutely.

I think it is the woman's right to choose. It would not be fair for a child to have to live a horrible life because the mother did not have the choice. I see kids on the news every week who just want a family to love them. Many people who are against abortions say that there are plenty of people who would adopt a baby, but is that fair to the tons of children in the world who don't have parents, who want to be adopted. I live close to DC and I see on the news people who beat their children nearly to death because they didn't want the child in the first place. How the heck is this fair to the child? Then, other children get put in foster homes because the parents couldn't take care of them. What happens to them? They get beaten to death and thrown in a freezer while the woman collects a check for keeping the children. I just wish that the mother would have had an abortion in this situation, so these children wouldn't have had to be put through this horror. I got pregnant at 18 and I never contemplated having an abortion. I knew I could find a way to support my child. I knew I would protect my child at all costs, but there are some people out there that may just not be able to handle it.

God gave us freedom of choice.  I am personally against it but I dont have the right to tell anyone else how to live.

I personally wouldn't get one but I believe a woman has the right to choose what she feels is right for her.

Totally against abortion. That is killing a creation of God's. There are so many people that can't have children that would love to adopt and the thought of someone having an abortion when the baby could be adopted. People need to stop and consider the consequences so abortion isn't even in the picture.

I'm 110% for it.  More people should get them.  Some people walking around today should have been aborted.

I believe it is a personal choice..And I believe being that persons body and choice that no one should take it away..There are things and times when abortion is a necessity..Example..I had a good friend who had gotten pregnant and well the pregnancy was really tough and the baby was not thriving and her and her babies life were on the balance her option was to abort or risk having a stillborn and risk her not surviving so I have to say the choice should be left up to individual..And no judgment should be passed it is a hard thing to go through and well it is something the individual struggles with even when it is not in their hands..

This is so so so true.

Also, did you guys know that the legalization of abortions lowered crime rates over time?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legalized_abortion_and_crime_effect

Forcing children on a woman that doesn't want them not only raises the crime rate, but think of what some of the children might have to go through? Sometimes they're even better off dead.
http://www.violentacres.com/archives/69/the-most-merciful-death-is-baby-death/

And did you ever think about how disgustingly overpopulated the world already is?

And really, there's more to it than just "oh, put it up for adoption." There's nine months of all sorts of pain for a child you then have to give away. Risking your life, even. No one should have to go through that. Especially for you people who say it's not okay even for rape victims. Rape is traumatic enough and then you want to make them go through a traumatic pregnancy as well? You have to be completely evil to want t force that on a woman.
