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? :XD: 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)
:pro-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
:pro-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 done babbling now... DX

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.

Okay, yeah...I'm gonna go chill out. G' Night.
