I think pro-choice. I mean, people are always saying "You're murdering the child." Although, I don't consider it murdering, since the child didn't even experience life. I guess you could argue that the child could have had a chance at life, but I think it should be completely up to the mother. If the mother lives in guilt about it, well it isn't the fault of abortion. It's just the person and the choices she made. Just because in some cases that the mother let's say kills herself because she aborted her child, doesn't mean that abortion should be banned becase ALL MOTHERS would do that or that it was the abortion that caused it. It was just the choice. Not the actual process. It's also the mother's life as well. I mean, should a woman's life be ruined because she had a baby? Let's say she had a good job but if she had the baby she would lose the job. The job could provide her money to take care of the child if she had another. And plus, rape isn't the choice of the mother.
I don't know really, I think it should be completely choice of the mother since it's really her life that could be ruined or better. It depends on the person completely.
Plus. Sometimes the birth of the baby will kill the mother, and maybe the child as well. I think it's better to abort the child so the mother's life is saved, and then possibly she could have another child. This is my opinion. It may seem harsh... and I'm sorry to all those who are pro-life if this is offensive, but this is how I think about this subject. I'm always happy to see the other sides and opinions. (I really enjoy reading them if anyone will take the time to reply to this XD)

If a woman is raped, or if it's a case of incest, yes.
Or say in the case of Roe Vs. Wade, the founding case for legalized abortion, if you have a child already, and you can't afford another one, you should be allowed to get one. It wouldn't be fair to the children involved.
And I believe that clean clinics of the late 20th and 21st century are a far cry better then what used to happen. It's better for women if they go to a doctor rather then ol' Joe Bob using a sponge, a wire hanger and his pick up bed (sorry for the overexaggeration). So keep the clinic.
And i respect a person's right to believe that is murder. They have that right. But what they can't do is try and pull what they did out in South Dakota and out right ban it in all cases EXCEPT medical need. Bans are legislated morality, and not everyone is raised like that. Our first amendment guarantees free conscience, and you should be allowed to do it if you feel you must.
it shouldn't be a Plan C (get it plan C? i thought it was a good reference...) when condoms break or you forget to take your pill or take it with an antibiotic. I still promote safe sex.
but in short, i'm pro choice. I believe you should be able to get an abortion if you want. And the ultra right should just stay out of it.
That one is hard to decide which because if one were to choose (in the situation that mother cannot or is not willing to take care fo the child) ro-choice a lot of babies won't see the light of day instead go on to live in heaven but the mother can live on with or without guilt ro-life the child would be put up for adoption or just placed in front of someone's doorstep and the child would grow up in a million different possibilities
The subject on rape is an interesting one If the mother was forever spiteful the child would one burn her up inside and may even make the mom commit murder If the mother was a caring person she'd be wholly depressed and the child would become man-hating
Life is a life it would have eventually become a human being. When a child is born the mother and/or father are responsible for the child until it is 18/21 so why not while it's still in the wound.
I'm sure there are lots of different ways to support both sides. I for one would like it if the world became more pro-life, while the choice of abortion be left for only the extreme situations
I'm for abortion if you really need it. Let's say you're a rape victim, or the condom broke or something like that. I'm definitely against late-term abortions though, and against people who just think it's no big deal and are too lazy to use protection.
But just saying that if you don't want the baby you can just toss it up for adoption also seems a little irresponsible for me. It's a human being who's going to grow up not knowing their real parents, and the possibilites of what could happen to it are endless. It won't necessarily end up in a loving, supportive home XD
This is definitely one of those things that needs to be taken on a case-by-case basis.
Pro-choice. It doesn't feel pain, nor is it sentient. But, BUT, if the lady thought "Oh, I'll do it and then get an abortion." than it's not right. But, if she was raped by her brother, than she should get an abortion. Think about the misery the baby will have to go through. The genetic disorders and the whole "Your uncle is your father" thing. S/he'll get depressed and probably commit suicide.
Yeah. I sorta hate the "Oh you were raped? Well too bad honey, in this family it's a sin against God to get a baby aborted so you'll have to deal with it." or in some cases, the family just abandons her. /rant Okay, yeah...I'm gonna go chill out. G' Night.
I'll have to say pro-choice myself. I don't believe it's murder, because it's not a person. Sure, it has the potential to be one, but... when people have abortions, it's just a fetus. Not a baby. (I guess I'm just one of those people who sees a difference in that. Some people do, some don't, please don't rag me about it.)
Though I'll be honest, in a sense I feel bad for saying so since I know how others feel about the subject, and how it IS "murder"; -- my boyfriend was born when his mother was very very young, and needed to be taken care of by his grandparents. However most cases are not this fortunate, and the children could be thrown into an adoption home, abusive families, or grow up with probably a feeling of neglect or unwantedness. That, and a family who just isn't prepared to take care of a child properly yet. It's the woman's body, I think it's her decision.
One thing I do not appreciate, however, is people seeing abortion as a "back up plan" if they forget to wear a condom or use birth control pills. Abortions are not something where you should just be able to walk into a hospital and get it done whenever you feel like, but it's sad how the world is actually turning into this.
Anyway, that's my opinion. I'm sorry if yours is different.
I don't support abortion for those who were little dumb fucks. You made the choice you live with it. That said my friend was a dumb fuck, she had an abortion and now the abortion haunts her cause she killed what was going to be her child.
I think a woman should have the choice in the case of rape. Carrying a rape child to term can be damaging. Another case where abortion is an option is if it is life threatening. If your health is at risk by having this child or a chance both you and the child will die then abortion is also ok.
Pro-choice. Some people who are pro-life probably don't know about how life changing it is to have a child when you aren't ready to make that change. And what about people who were raped and got pregnant? If it were me, I would definately not want to have the child of someone who I wasn't even in consent with. I believe it's a woman's choice what she does with her body, not the government's.
Pro choice. People who say it's wrong to abort clearly haven't considered how hard it actually is for anyone to cope with a child especially say if you're a young teen and what if you were being really safe too? It's not your fault.
I made that comment a long time ago; my arguments and mentality since then have changed. It was quite rude of me to call people retarded, not to mention quite UN-gentlemanly. However, I do generally think that people who support abortion are selfish, among things. I know there are individuals who are intelligent, or perhaps even good people, but yet still support abortion for whatever reason; I tend to lump all abortion supporters (among other policies) in the worst category by default, which is a mistake on my part; I shouldn't generalize and judge like that after all.
the fact is, abortion terminates life, if you choose to have sex, youre going to get pregnant, it's that simple.
If its really an inconvenience, everyone should carry the child, give birth to it, and submit it to child services for adoption. Never is terminating a life a good thing for anyone, because not only are you killing a human life, you are killing yourself in the process since that child is also a part of you at its core.
Abortion is truly a bad thing where it is preventable.
I agree whole heartedly with spilledsalt, I think if they were to ban abortions, rape should be highly considered. It wouldn't have been the woman's choice to have had sex in the first place, little alone carry the child, not to mention all of the trauma and pain she'd have gone through in the first place... I feel bad for those people.
Not necessarily? Everyone is different, I know people who have felt guilty about it, but I also know some who don't have any regrets. It all depends on the person whether they will "lose all will to live"; try not to generalize it so much.
Most of the mothers who abort probably don't consider it "killing" anyway, hence it's done so freely (but that's a whole different aspect which everyone has different opinions on, so there's no use getting into it considering there's really no right or wrong answer).
"Due time"? We're talking about now, not the future. But going through the pain of being raped and then having to feel the pain of giving birth after 9 months of mood swings, cravings, and a big belly, at their expense? And the child will go through a life of depression knowing they were the product of the mother getting raped in an alleyway by her brother. And then there's the chance of the lady losing her job due to not being able to work because she was pregnant with a bastard child.
I understand where you're coming from, it's only natural to some degree, all I mean is, why punish the child? All new life has free of guilt and should be treated as if it were a part of you, even if you never get to see it again. I've said my piece, thanks for the observation.
this is from the logical point of view, Ive observed cases of many women whos abortions led them to kill themselves out of a growing sense of guilt, not just for killing their child, but for killing a part of themselves. Sure it may have been against their will, but who are we to determine whether someone else lives or dies.
actually, name it as "last resort" that would probably be more effective, seeing as how doctors are likely to abuse their authority at times like this:
besides, one set of doctors' heads are on the chopping block for forcing a catholic nurse to assist in a falsely-documented "emergency" abortion whereas it wasnt at all an emergency and she is not obligated to assist in those procedures against her will.
Needless to say, it didnt bode well for the doctors at that hospital, not enough lines drawn.
When I was younger I was always pro-choice but now that I'm a little older I think a bit differently. I think that there are only certain times an abortion should be allowed but most of the time I feel the baby should be born. If you don't wanna kid don't get pregnant or give it up for adoption. If it threatens yours or the childs life or the child will be born with serious medical conditions then I think its okay.
