Thoughts on abortion just wondering

I think there should e restrictions on abortion... there shouldn't be a teenage girl who was raped and now pregnant that should have to live with that there should b certain times for that stuff

A woman's body is just that, her body. She should have the right to do what is best for her. Religion and politics should not dictate this. A woman and her conscious is all that is necessary. Whether people agree with it or not, Roe v Wade, needs to be protected.

It's not her body it's her babies body. Religion and politics aside I think it's wrong

We are all entitled to our own opinions. It is not, however, considered a baby upon conception, it is a fetus. It could not live on it's own. Which is why most states ban third trimester abortions. You do not have the right to speak for another woman and what she should do with her body. No one does.

What about the child's body? Nobody should be allowed to use her/his body to take the life of an innocent human being, much less to kill one's own pre-born son or daughter. Whether you call the child a fetus or a zygote or a baby, no one denies that the child is human offspring. The innocent child deserves protection no matter how she/he was conceived.

The mother than abortion. Abortion is a brutal act that traumatizes the mother. A rape victim has already endured brutality and trauma. She should not be expected to endure the additional brutality and trauma of abortion. Studies show that women who give birth to children conceived in rape fare far better than those who abort.

a person in a coma cannot live on his/her own. they cannot make decisions. is killing them the same?
Report as
There are no facts stating that a female who has been raped endures more trauma by having an abortion. It is also a fact that a fetus is not considered full term until week 38, although many now can live outside of the womb at an earlier age. Again, that is your belief, but you have no right to impose it upon others. You cannot speak if you are not wearing the other person's shoes. Unless you are personally faced with these decisions, you do not know for sure what you would do, even though you strongly believe abortion would never be an option.

Despite what you may believe, I am capable of great empathy. Despite this, it is not okay to just allow children to be murdered. It is is also merely your opinion that it's /not/ murder. Are you willing to chance the risk that in the world if "opinions", when one side is proven by fact, you may be in the wrong? And that that wrong entails the death of innocent baby humans?

Murder is murder, people forget that a human has a soul. But then again some people have no conscience

Well u have a good point for being raped then pregnant but my opinion on abortion is that I think it's wrong and it should be a crime and if I was raped and got pregnant bc of that I would keep the baby but it would be hard to live with that

Well i think abortion is really wrong if you thought you were responsible enough to have sex you should be responsible enough to take care of it. But I do understand if you get abortion because you were raped but they could also put it up for adoption.

In your own mind, and you certainly don't have to answer me, do you believe you should make the choice are have the choice made for you? I always find that's where this question gets muddled for many.

People have a reason for wanting an abortion and I respect that. To me it doesn't matter if they're a teen or a victim, if they want an abortion let them do it.

I sort of agree, but if a girl got raped and got pregnant she could give birth and give the baby to a family friend or put it up for adoption.

It would be hard living with the baby cause the child would probably want to meet its father sooner or later and what if he tried to get custody of the child? :/

Only in rape incest, health of the mother at risk. there are plenty of barren people who'd love to adopt babies/children.

Always keep the baby. There are ALOT of people who can't have kids or love to adopt. Every child should have a chance in life, and a negligent parent or teen should in no way keep them from it.

Although I believe in pro life theres circumstances where the woman should choose to abort if having a baby will put her health at risk. Rape is another reason

It's very easy to say "pro-life" and sound all virtuous. But that doesn't mean you get to tell other people how to live their lives or when to have children. Pro-choice people aren't going around telling people they HAVE to get abortions, just that everyone should make their own choices.

You think we shouldn't tell people how to live, but it's OK to deny an innocent child the right to live, to kill a baby! Your values and priorities are twisted like a pretzel. What good is freedom to choose if we are denied the right to live?
Report as
At the time the abortion is performed, it's NOT a baby yet. Only living tissue. It has no thoughts or feeling of any kind, it is not even aware that it's there. People have been performing abortions for thousands of years. They were declared illegal not because of some grand moral feeling, but because they were hideously dangerous TO THE MOTHER. From that standpoint, abortions are now safer than childbirth. So the original reason that abortions were EVER illegal is gone.
Report as
then perhaps abortion should be illegal only after a certain time. perhaps after the time the heart starts beating. (day 18, i believe?)
Report as
The heart doesn't form until the fifth week, and can be seen beating on ultrasound in the eighth week.
Abortion is generally illegal after the baby "quickens" or moves on its own at 13-25 weeks. Twenty weeks seems to be the legal point at which abortion is illegal. It is definitely illegal is the fetus is "viable"; at which point it IS a separate life from the mother.
Personally, and I am in no way shoving this opinion on others, UNLESS there is a health concern for the mother, I think the decision should be made within the first three months. I think that would be a reasonable amount of time for the mother to consider her options. Never been in that position, so can't speak from experience.

DeepDark, It is good to read an educated opinion on this subject. I usually do not get too far on this topic when it arises.

I'm glad you understand it as I meant it. It's a very emotional topic, and I try to state my own opinion while not riling up people's emotions.

Abortions will still happen even if the procedure is outlawed. Rich women fly to Sweden. Poor women can do an abortion in a back alley with a coat hanger and risk infection. I would much rather see women get help inside of a medical facility before they fatally hurt themselves.

There will be far fewer abortions when human life is fully protected by the laws. The coat hanger myth is a total lie. Before de-criminalization, most abortions were performed by physicians who risked imprisonment. Some of those same back alley quacks are still committing abortion today, without the risk of imprisonment. They're botching abortions, injuring and killing pregnant moms. See abortiondocs.org. De-criminalization benefits abortionists, not patients.

I believe it's 100% wrong in all cases. Reality is it highly unlikely it will become illegal. I don't buy into this "it's the woman's body" bs. The developing human being inside is its own life and body. There should be no choice period. It's a life no matter how it is conceived. The developing human being did nothing wrong and isn't a burden. Take religion and politics out of the question and my argument is the baby has its natural right to finish developing in the womb, be born, and live. I believe the fetus has a heartbeat at 18 days. Stopping a heartbeat in any other instance is murder. Why should abortion be any different? We all can sit here and argue, debate, or bicker forever and neither side who strongly has their belief will change their mind.

You didn't choose if you got to live and neither does the fetus/developing human being. It's not your body this has to do with. It's the life inside your body, which you shouldn't have any right in having a "choice" whether it should live or not. "I notice everyone for abortion has been born".- Ronald Reagan It's still murder, the fetus still has a soul. I cannot grasp how a mother to be can kill her own child. I don't even think a wild animal could do this.

I am against it but for the exceptions of rape, incest, and when the life of the mother is threatened. It should be unlawful to murder an innocent child or even condone doing so

Less than 1% of abortions are performed due to rape and incest combined.

The rest is women killing their children. How this is viewed as anything but murder and complete disregard for human life scares me and baffles me.
