Pro choice. If someone wants an abortion then someone wants an abortion, they obviously have good reason to want it. If someone thinks abortion is wrong, then no one is forcing them to have one.

I'm Pro-Choice all the way. It's the woman's decision, possibly her familie's, NOT the doctors, not the fool government, not some strangers whom she's never met, not some religious fanatics, HER'S.
As long as the abortion is done in a certain time (before 3 months), and properly.
There are so many reason's why a woman shouldn't have to be forced to have her baby: rape, incest, she's not fully capable (Including money, and mental/physical health), or she doesn't want it, and many more reasons too I'm sure.

Pro-choice.

You try telling a raped woman that she has to keep, feed, support, nurture and love a child she never wanted. All on her own.


You can't assume she'd do it alone just because she was raped. And, no one would be forcing her to keep the child.


Personally, I'm pro-life.

Also need to debunk many myths surrounding the issue.

My favorite has to be the whole 'my body, my choice' crap.

The body of your child isn't the same as yours, separate and unique DNA is found in the child that isn't your DNA.  The choice made upon your body is that of having sex, and the circumstances in which you choose to have sex.

Then you also have the liberals always attempting to cling to rape to justify abortion.  Thing is that rape isn't even 1% of the abortions that occur.  Also I don't personally know of anyone who is trying to make abortion due to rape illegal, yet liberals are constantly trying to use rape as a justification for dumb sluts to get abortion.

The vast majority of the people who want abortion to be illegal also understand that there are execptions to every rule.  Rape is a serious issue and should be given special circumstances.  From a moral standpoint I do not agree with aborting these children, but I do understand the justification behind it (especially since your choice to have sex was taken away from you) and believe that it should be legal.  

Also serious medical issues should be a reason for abortion.  If the child is going to be born dead, or the birth will kill the mother, then the mother shouldn't be forced to choose her life over that of the child.  

There should also be an exemption to this rule as well, there should be a punishment for those who willingly/intentionally get pregnant while they have a condition that will keep them from giving birth.  If you already know that it will kill you, then why intentionally set yourself up for it?  If you wish to continue having sex and your condition is one that cannot be resolved in the near future, then get your reproductive organs removed.

To just murder your children simply because you aren't financially stable or you just don't want them, should be a criminal offense.  If you did not wish to have those children, then you could have either not had sex or had your reproductive organs removed.  You made a concious decision to have sex, thus you should be held accountable for the outcome of your choice.

I'm pro-choice.

I believe that a woman has the right to decide whether or not she wants to give birth to a child. I know a lot of people argue that rape victims should definitely have a choice, and I believe someone said this already, but I doubt that a vast majority of women getting abortions are rape victims. Victims of rape, if given medical treatment soon enough, are given emergency contraception to prevent unwanted pregnancy. I know there is a failure rate of the morning-after pill, but it's effective in about 90% of those who take it. Soooo, I think it would be safe to say that very few women have abortions as a result of rape.

If a woman is put at risk during pregnancy due to complications, she should have the right to choose. Also, I believe that if a couple is responsible about having sex and use at least 2 forms of protection in an attempt to prevent pregnancy, the woman should also have a choice then. True enough, she could very well have used the protection incorrectly, but in the event that the methods of contraception fail and she conceives, she should be able to decide if she wants a child at that time in her life or not.

And, no one would be forcing her to keep the child.

But should she have to go through all the banalities of putting the child up for adoption (or whatever path she chooses for it) simply because we believe that the "sanctity of life" (in this case; parasitic, unwanted life) overpowers all other impacts on the situation? Since when did the unborn, incapable child have more rights than the woman giving birth to it?

However, I also agree with a lot of what abs said. Abortion should, perhaps, be left as a patch over the gaping wound of rape or the fleeting smirk of a serious medical ramification. But everyone can always lie, and say that they were raped, and this would supposedly justify their choice.

However, we must recognise that a lot of people wont care. If we ban abortion, we're going to see a lot of people going to back to the days of backyard abortions - and people accidently ruining their reproductive organs with coathangers is not something a social environment really appreciates.

It's tricky.

Killing theirselves or destroying their reproductive organs via illegal abortions would only be benifitting the gene pool.

Also, if you made it to where you had to prove rape to get an abortion, then you would also be able to put stricter punishments on sluts who just bang guys then cry rape just because they regret having sex with them or something.

.

The ONLY thing I disagree with you on this issue, is the governments control over the issue. I think that once the government gets involved it will be way too close to I-Robot. The best way to stop abortions would be to stop people from having sex, and I really don't want the government to tell me or anyone else who I can and cannot have sex with. If people would just own up to their own decisions on thier own it would make things so much easier. So I'd prefer people to battle it out here, rather than wait for them to try and ban sex.
