Yeah, I don't agree with abortion. If a legit couple has the mistake of conceiving a child they don't want, they have the responsibility to carry it out, even if it's to put it in an orphanage later. Abortion is like killing someone you don't like out of inconvenience.

There are exceptions, however. Suppose a woman is raped and later finds out she's pregnant because of it... there's no reason to put her in one-nine months of agony and a constant reminder of the horrendous event.

Life begins at conception. Once the sperm and egg meet then they are a human life. Abortion is wrong on soooo many levels.

I learned the 4 criteria for like last year in Biology

1. Must contain DNA (the zygote has DNA now, and a full set of human chromosomes.)
2. But have a metabolism (the zygote burns energy and uses it to divide.)
3. Must be able to reproduce (the cells are reproducing and deviding. And the Zygote is the product of sexual reproduction)
4. Must interact or respond to surroundings (It devides and eventually implants into the uterus were it interacts with the female reproductive system and develops a placenta. it also reacts by dying when you murder it.)

The zygote and fetus are alive. Living things must belong to a species. So the zygote/fetus are human. Isn't killing a human called murder?

well, since i am a catholic.. abortion is a big no no... and i also think that
abortion is murder...

however, sometimes i think abortion is about "why people resort to it"..
the "right values" are rarely manifested by the youth today... let's face reality, the youth today does not see sex as sacred and/or a way of "procreation".. they see sex as somewhat like a recreation where you do it because you just like to do it... that's why there are a lot of unwanted pregnancies.. the word here is unwanted.. and so i guess it's better to abort the baby than be born and not feel the love that he/she is suppose to feel..

it's really hard to have a life when in the first place your parents were forced to take care of you.. i mean of all the people in this world, your parents should be the first one to love you.. it really sucks living a life where you dont get any love...

U mean once it implants? before it implants it devides and grows as it makes its way towards the uterus. I would say that it is a living thing.

Just because its unwanted does not mean it doesn't have a right to life. If you are going to have sex then you need to accept the fact that you/your partner, may become pregnant. If your not willing to have a baby then don't do it. Be responcible, if you don't wan't a baby then use protection.

has a full set of human chromosomes as soon as the sperm and the egg get together huh? didn't know that one.

also sperm contains dna. so cranking one out as we all do is murder?

now three is kind of stupid. product of reproduction isn't reproduction. not to mention cells are always dividing really.

now four is odd. as interact and respond to its surroundings means what exactly? doesn't attach to the uterus right away. divides again cells divide plenty.


but you guys are right. a fourteen year old girl that was raped who could die giving birth should have the "baby" who hasn't lived a day in the world by sacrificing her fourteen years on this earth.

women who have been raped in general should give birth to kids who serve as a daily reminder of what happened to them.

It should be aloud . I mean what if its concived by accedent. like poeple have achoice. Its better to bring up a baby with love than one of dislike or false love. Also imo its not a life untill it comes out the womb whn it is breathing oxygen and moving around. Arwe they not the charictersitics of life. I mean it can move in the womb but it doesnt have tjhat freedom is restricted. In a sense yes it could be living but no imo its not a "real" life.

aso a condom can be ripped or damagaed so what happens then?

Sperm don't meet all the criteria for life though. They don't reproduce or devide. They are also a haploid cell meaning they contain half of the human chromosomes.

If your not willing to accept the fact that pregnancy can come from sexual intercorse. Then don't do it. If your not willing to accept that then do something else.

yeah but what u dont get is that fact thatby not having abortion your forcing them to commit to loving a child they dont want i just think its unfair. If they want an abortion they can. I mean if say someone i knew wanted an abortion i would sup[port them 100% cos its their choice and we live in a world where we can make choices.

Also by having to live with consiquence of having that child it becmes a punishment and having children should not be a punishment

Two weeks? Honestly I think that’s too far into it…

Well what is a Human life? And when does a life begin? These two questions have been used to heatedly debate in favor of murdering innocent babies. (Which is all abortion is in my opinion.)

For me, religiously Human life is anything possessing a soul. Secularly it’s whenever the egg is fertilized and the two parents have become a part of this tertiary party. Women leak out the eggs on their own if it’s not fertilized, right? Well, this being said it wouldn’t be murder to destroy something that will be disposed of and burn away anyway. Moreover, it’s certainly not murder to use birth control… At least in my opinion.

Now to check out the links that have been posted.

To me abortion isn't murder. Although it can be abused. If a woman was raped and became pregnant, would you tell her that she couldn't get an abortion? That she should live with a constant reminder of being raped?

Also, if a girl gets pregnant and can't support the child, it should be aborted. Rather than carry the pregnancy to term just to give it up for adoption. I mean does Child Services need anymore on its plate? Its bad enough that they can't handle what they have now.

Also, people need to get over the moral issue and think about the consequences. Having a baby at the wrong time can potentially destroy a family, or a persons life. And then the child gets caught up in that? That's just not fair.

Now I will say that I don't think abortions should just be handed out to people. People should be educated on valid forms of birth control and to practice safe sex. If people were 100% compliant to that, there would be no need for abortions.
