Sex Between Married couples can have sex all they want to, Just be prepared for the consequences.


So what if the condom tears? Or if some other thing happens that causes the woman to get pregnant even though they took precautions to prevent it from happening?


Well, among Jehovah's Witnesses, they would bring the fetus to full term and give birth, and most likely they both would raise the child with love, even if it was an accident.

I know. But what if they weren't ready for a baby? What if they couldn't raise a baby? Maybe because they were poor or sick or had physical limitations.

And while we're at it, what about rape?

I can't speak for my brothers or sisters, But I would think they would pray to Jehovah for guidance and seek the advise of one of the congregation overseer, and likely he would sit down with them and look for answers in the Bible first, then would base their decision(s) on what they read and meditated on it.

However no witness couple would ever consider abortion as an alternative, Irregardless of their financial status or health issues, Even if the spouse was raped.

I have a suggestion, the next time a witness couple comes by your home, Ask Them the same questions. you may be suprised.

I know this stuff. I grew up as a Jehova's Witness. I just wanted to hear your opinion on the matter.

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.


Ohh? But you just stated that Abortion is like killing someone you don't like out of inconvenience, and remember, at conception, that joining of cells will eventually be a fellow human, Do we have the right to end it's life? or ask yourself, what did that child do to you that you should kill it?

I had a miscarriage and my boy friend broke up with me after that. He must of been super happy.
He did ask me to get an abortion and I said no. I even told him that he didn't have to be apart of it.
Two days later. I saw a fox demon. Oh wait I am the Fox demon ayiii ayiiii

I agree, abortion is wrong, but I think people should think more about the issue than just "it's murder".

Digs brings up an excellent point. When does killing a bunch of cells become killing a human being? People become ridiculously obtuse when they believe that abortion at any stage is wrong, but fail to realize that the skin cells scientists experiment on, and a fertilized egg with no consciousness or even a brain to speak of, are, in a sense, the same.

In the situation of rape, I think the decision is more objective. It really becomes a matter of personal preference. Their baby will be a living reminder of what happened to them. It can be a horrible experience for the mother. Is it fair to have the girl raise a child she never asked for? To become a single mother and have her life change drastically for something she never asked for? On the other hand, is it the baby's fault? Why does this child, who has the potential to become so much more, be punished for something the father did? Personally, whatever the decision, I think I'd be more understanding.

Someone's life is in your hands, so having an abortion isn't something to take lightly,
But what if the mother is unable to support the baby? Is it fair for the mother and the child to suffer through poverty?

And what if the baby were to be born with a disability? Would it be fair to have a child experience everything that encompasses having a handicap? Not just the physical issues, but the social issues too. The inability to communicate, a life of drugs and hospital visits, the lack of friends, bullying, having so many limits on what you can do, is it fair? Would it be a life worth living? A life you would want to bestow?

The most important thing to keep in mind, and I think everyone will agree on this, is that this is all about the life of the baby. Abortion shouldn't be something black-and-white, and although I sound like I'm for abortion or something, I'm not. It's just that everyone's so, "MURDER", "THEY SHOULD DEAL WITH IT", and "WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS" that it seems a bit close-minded.

Two things that no one has touch on when I talk about abortion with people

First:
"Abortion is murder, don't do it"
"The fetus shouldn't be punished for someone else actions"
"There is an exception to abortion if there was rape involved"
Rape excuses abortion. Using the statements' logic, if you abort the fetus as a result of rape. you are still essentially killing a life. Then my question is, how is that fetus any less of a life? Moreover, by aborting the child you are kind of punishing it for something they couldn't control. At this point, wouldn't "it's a life, it's a life" be an invalid statement? *

Second:
"The victim should not be responsible for their rapist's actions because it's cruel"
"People who engages in consensual sex and get pregnant have a responsibility to take up"

Then wouldn't it be a discussion about responsibility rather than life?

I don't know :x

The choice of abortion should be between the woman (or couple) and their doctor. There shouldn't be any interference by government or any other group. The fact that the fetus can't live outside the womb until, let us say, 7 months has lapsed makes this argument of whether it is alive or not a pointless debate. We all agree that once the baby is outside the womb, it is living on its own power with nourishment being a common issue to all living things.

The pragmatic approach to this topic should be when is the earliest possible time for the fetus to live outside the womb without adverse effects to its life. When the fetus can survive outside the womb it becomes a baby(a living thing) abortion should be made illegal when the fetus can survive outside the womb at this time. Any time prior to this survivability point, abortion is acceptable option.

My personal beliefs and the morality of abortion doesn't override my belief in free choice or those to make their own choices. If I had impregnated a woman, I wouldn't choose abortion but if the woman that I impregnated wanted to abort the pregnancy, I wouldn't mind because it is ultimately her choice. She is the one that will have to carry it through pregnancy. She is the one that will be impacted the most financially. She is the one that will be pressured by society to care for the child, though this is changing (slowly). It is best to have a baby when you are financially and emotionally mature. The impact of financial and emotional state of the parents greatly affects the outcome of a child.

Should Abortion be legal? Yes.

Well tbh, im prefectly fine with it (and no its not because im a male), but i think that abortion can be something to save yourself if you are a woman, say your still in hs and get pregnate but ur family is very poor and your barely hanging in their, then it may be the right choice because you would not be able to support a healthy lifestyle for yourself, your family, and even your child. You would be ill prepared to handle the child, and your giving up your life to help support another that cant do anything for itself without proper care. Then i believe she would have the right to do it for the safey of herself and her family and child. But ofc this doesnt apply to every woman, but i dont believe that decision is up to anyone but themselfs, if they think they are not ready then it may be the right choice, however i dont think thats anyone elses decision. in short i think it should be prefectly reasonable to get a abortion if u want to.
