I am against it and if you are sexually active you should take precautions against it. If you don't want a baby, then don't have sex or use a contraceptive.  :thumbsup:

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.

Absolutely agree :thumbsup:

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..

Once again,, I agree completely  :thumbsup:

I think the woman has the right to do what she wants to do to her body. Period. I personally would never do it, unless I was put in a situation that I had no control over, like rape, or possibility of losing both my baby and myself. And I would NEVER judge anyone for doing it. Its your right as a woman, as an American to make that decision.
That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.

You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

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.

i agree. i wouldnt want to have a child i didnt want..from a man i didnt love or maybe even didnt know.

I've had one, but I didn't have much of a choice.  I had a baby inside me that was not thriving but would not pass on its own.  My choice was to either have the D&C or to risk trying to allow the pregnancy to pass on its own, risk not being able to become pregnant again, and risk serious health to myself.  Now I have a beautiful 2 year old daughter.  And, before anyone asks, I was in a monogamous relationship with my husband and we wanted desperately to have a child.  We had to make the best decision possible for ourselves. 

Two years before that, I was raped, and my faith was shaken.  The rapist didn't use a condom, and my period was late.  I knew without a doubt that there was no way I could carry the child should I be pregnant.  Thankfully, I wasn't.  The same wasn't true for a very close friend of mine...she became pregnant as a result of her rape.  She had an abortion, and now she has a beautiful daughter that she loves more than life itself.

Abortion, firstly, is a very misleading term, but I'm not here to debate semantics.  It is a very difficult thing to decide to terminate a pregnancy; one that NO ONE can make in advance, and to deny anyone the opportunity to make the decision for themselves based on the personal moral politics of someone who has never dealt with the situation firsthand is wrong. Period. 

So many people tout "take responsibility for your actions" and using condoms, birth control, or abstinence.  This isn't realistic without comprehensive sex education.  Using a condom isn't going to do much good if neither party knows how to correctly use a condom.  How many Bristol Palins are out there in the world whose parents are telling them to not have sex until they are married, and then they become pregnant and feel that they have to get married because "it is the right thing to do?"  How many of those teens who get pregnant tell the guy they are pregnant and are abandoned?  How many would physically harm themselves to keep from telling their judgmental parents they were pregnant or to avoid a "shotgun wedding?"

This question isn't as narrow as it may seem.  If you want to debate viability, ok.  I'll bite.  If you want to debate when a pregnancy becomes a human being with individual rights, ok, I'll bite.  But in the final analysis, it doesn't matter a bit what I say...each woman deserves the right to decide for themselves when faced with this: http://www.thelizlibrary.org/liz/004.htm

Some people walking around today should have been aborted.  

it sounds harsh, but it really is the truth!

i'm pro-choice, for a number of reasons.

by the way, this should be in the debate section of the forum.
dead-end discussions will inevitably rile up some feathers.

I find it contradictory to say that it's murder, but it's OK in rape cases.  The supposed child would still be a life too. Anyway, I find that we should care more about those that are alive now rather those that aren't in this world.  It's a woman's body and she has every right to do what she likes.  If abortion gets illegalized women will still find a way, only this time they'll be punished for a decision that is rightly there's to choose.

Including people that have serial killers?  They were blessings to their parents and society in general?  One person's choice to have an abortion has absolutely nothing to do with your desire to have a child.

I wouldn't do it myself, but I believe a woman should decide what's best for herself. :peace:
