Abortion
« on: January 20, 2011, 07:22:14 am »
What are your views on abortion? Is it black and white right or wrong? Are there certain situations that warrant it if you're against it? Should the woman always have the choice? What about the father involved?

I am just curious for different opinions and arguments on the subject. My beliefs are set but I'd like to read the discussion and reasons for what others have to say.

Ready... GO!

If your beliefs are completely set in stone, what's the point of even discussing something like this?  This is the stuff hurtful arguments are made of, it seems to me.  Healthy debate is good; but debate to me implies an openness to the other side of the topic or issue.  I have opinions on abortion, and while they're pretty firm, I wouldn't say that my mind is made up and that's it; my opinions on such issues have changed before as I grow as a person.

I just like the discussion of it all. I like to hear other's opinions and reasonings for them. If nothing else, it allows me to strenghten my responses to arguments and better form my own ideas. I am open to hear what others have to say even though I am firm in my beliefs. This is a debate board so I was hoping for a healthy debate and find nothing wrong in that.

Nothing wrong in that at all.  In that case, I would have to say abortion in this country is simply used incorrectly.  It has become a method of birth control which it was never meant to be.  Rather, it should only be used in cases where the mother's life is in danger or the child would likely not survive anyway, or in other extreme cases such as rape and incest.  In those cases, it would not need to be up to the father; he wouldn't have to be involved.  However, as it is now, I believe that the father should have some say - there have been cases of unwanted pregnancies in which the parents were separated, the woman did not want the child but the father did and was willing to raise the child on his own.  In cases like that, the father should certainly have a say - after all, it does take two to tango, so to speak.

Psalm 139:13-16
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

To each their own. I would not fight for a right to be taken away from any human being. Just because I believe in something does not and will not make me throw stones or take another persons rights away.
Abortion is NOT black and white. Just as humanity there is gray although most are color blind in the simple fact of being so self absorbed that they only think of themselves and not the WHOLE picture.

If a woman decides she doesn't want to be a mother, she could have an abortion. If a man does not want to be a father, what can he do? Nothing. The man should be involved and have some say in the decision of an abortion.

Actually, sdecaro558 pretty much said what I believe. I am very much against abortion unless the mother was raped, or the mother or child is in extreme danger. I know there are situations where the use of abortion is warranted, but I do not think it should be used to get rid of a problem, as I have heard some people say. I used to think it was a black and white decision, that it should never be used. But, my eyes have been opened to situations that definitely warrant it. However I do think it should be done early in the pregnancy, if it must be used. I despise the fact that young teen mothers use it to make their life simpler. In my opinion, if you are willing to have sex and put yourself in that situation, then you should take responsibility for your actions. If the mother will not be able to properly provide for the child, then adoption should be used. As for the father's role in the decision, I think he should only have a say if it is not a health factor to the mother and/or child to deliver the baby. I know it is the woman who must go trhough the pregnancy, but the baby is as much his as it is hers.

For myself, I am Pro-Life.  For others, I am Pro-Choice.  Who am I to judge you?  I am not the Judge, Jury and Executioner.  For those who believe in God - Your God gives you free will (to do either your will or his).  For those who don't believe in God - What does it matter anyway what "He" thinks?  There are so many things to take into concideration.  But No-one has the right to force their beliefs onto others.

I think no one should decide should decide for a woman what to do with her body. I know there's a fetus in the women but if she dies the fetus will to. I think after the child is born she no longer could do anything but when its inside her she has the right to decide what she wants to do with it. I had an abortion id feel ashame I didn't want it i didn't get rapped i did not want to give it to addoption i didn't want it growing in me . i never want to be a parent i made a mistake and id think is fair if i pay for it the rest of my life.

I believe that it all depends on the circumstances. If the mother is raped, or in danger, then yes. But if it is just because the mother was careless and didn't use protection, then no, they should consider adoption if they do not want/ are unable to care for a baby. There are many couples out there dying to have a child.

Here is a question to think about..
Is it ok to have an abortion if you know that the child will be born with a disability (mentally, or physically)?
