Abortion is selfish. The babies didn't do anything and they have no right to take the life.

I am extremely neutral about it because it has so many pros and cons that are jut so important. But I guess it all depends on what situation the mother is in.

I hope I'm not being redundant. I have skimmed past comments and it seems to be 17 pages of the same stuff. I find some of the comments funny (not funny ha ha). A majority of them are by people who do not have the ability to have a child themselves or know what it is like to have to experience a pregnancy scare.
I feel that this is a womans issue and men can give their opinion (the men in this forum might make great fathers one day) but, overall they will never know what it is like to say "oh no I'm pregnant". No matter how careful you are (ALWAYS USE A CONDOM) nothing is 100% guaranteed to keep your from becoming pregnant.
My grandmother took in foster children for a majority of my life so, I know for a fact that in America the adoption agencies are over crowded.Most kids especially black and hispanic, will never be adopted and find that good home they tell so many teen mothers about. They will end up on the streets at 18, a lot end up making the mistakes of the parents they never knew.
There are girls out with no self esteem or are very poor that seek men for comfort, security,etc. They don't think I may get pregnant they are just living from day to day. Their baby may never have a father she may not know who he is. Adoption is not an option pregnant woman can't hustle as well as non pregnant ones. Their are married women especially Catholics, who after they have a few kids can not handle even THINKING about having another one. Pregnancy takes a HUGE toll on a womans body and their not cheap. It costs over $10,000 to have a baby. $10,000 and the child is not here yet. To think you are pregnant especially is you have done everything in your power not to be is a horrible feeling that if you never had I wouldn't wish on anyone.
I know I was preachy and I may not even make sense but, some people in this forum sound very young and naive and sound more like a pamphlet. Yet seem to get very angry when someone shares a different opinion. I'm Pro - Choice (obviously) and I'm iffy on Late Term Abortions, but to each their own no
one has the right to tell a woman what she can and can not do to her body. It isn't as simple as murder/not murder. "If These Walls Could Talk" great movie on the subject. It can enlighttn some on what it was like when abortion was illegal.

ABSOLUTELY the baby is a living creature but it can't decide for itself yet so the mother has no right to dispose of it.

I'm personally conflicted with this issue, and some of my thought are quite contraditory.

I personally would not want to deny a womans right to choice, but if ever i did get a woman pregnant never personally opt for an abortion, no matter what the circumstances are.. I do believe in places like america and some other western countries Abortion has just become so easy to get that it become just like a normal procedure to some women. While i'm not applying this to all women i've seen statistics in the US of women having 2 to 3 abortions by the time she is 25. I think some women. If you have had 2 abortions at that age you have to seriously look at yourself, cause you are not doing something right

I also think abortion rights has lessened personal responsibility for your body and actions. It's become a quick fix for peoples problems. It should not be a trivial thing where you just sign up for an apoinment and the next day its done. Woman who are getting this procedure have to seriously think about what they are doing, and realize the gravity of it, and not just discount it as just cell in your body.

Its not a baby its a zygoat. Then it becomes an embryo. Followed lastly by a fetus. You cannot abort an baby because untill it is born it is nothing more then a fetus. So your argument is wrong to me.

^I'm against abortion, but pro choice, I thought I would state that first.

Don't use that arguement. There are plenty of rape victims, mothers who's lives could be in danger, or defective feti (did not develop brain or spine)

I understand why you are against it, but do not use this arguement and not expect flames.

I agree, I have a big post on adoption earlier in the thread. I'm simply saying you have to back up your arguement more than 'just don't do it' because that is not the case for everyone.

Have any of you actaully HAD an abortion? or been in a situation where you needed to?
I have... so if you want to be the freaks out front throwing shit at me for the hardest choice i've ever had to make in my life, then go right ahead... i can't stop you, but just remember... the mother feels it a hell of a lot more than the freaks out front throwing water baloons at me.
