Do you support abortion?

Having debated this just last week with a few guy friends. I really do feel that men are generally men believe abortion is wrong because they don't have to carry the baby.
However, I think every woman should have the choice because if she feels she cant look after their babies then why make themselves or the babies suffer. Also if its a result of rape then why should both the woman and her child be reminded of the unfortunate time?

Wow you guys, you do realize that it's woman who has to go through ten months of that right? Besides, your pro-life thing makes no sense. Everything you eat comes from other living organisms, the wood you're sitting on, the meat you eat etc. If you're "pro-life", you should be against everything you use on a daily basis.

Don't want to offend anyone :) Just thought I'd add my two cents.

I disagree that abortion is a sin, people who choose to abort can only choose what they do, perhaps they are too young or they are simply not ready, surely they have a right to think about themselves. They may go insane with a child, and imagine if they were still in school, they may not be able to provide the baby with what it needs as they are young. Personally, I dislike abortion because you are taking away the life of an innocent child who has not even smelled the fragrance of life. But I do take in what the mother of that child must feel like, so I can understand, but having not experienced this I suppose I still do not fully understand the feelings of those who choose to abort.

sometimes birth control fails or you put the birth control on improperly, most times people have sex they think they are not going to become pregnant and sometimes they do become pregnant. I'm pro choice, I don't think its immoral to get an early abortion or for the first half or pregnancy if the mother's life is at risk.of course I want people o not be in those situations because it is a hard decision for some because they do see it as a life from the point of conception but for me the life starts when it starts to have a brain and a capacity to think and feel before that its just cells. I respect people who are pro life its fine. my mom is strongly pro life her birth control failed for an unknown reason.there was a women who used birth control pills and drank detox tea and the tea didn't say that it makes the birth control pills not work and she got pregnant from drinking this tea while on birth control pills, she sued the tea company. everyone has different life situations and having a child is such a big decision that you should not force someone to have a child if they don't want to. the child's life might be worse being born to a bad parent then if they were not born at all.

I cannot agree with the generalisation that all abortion is a sin.

In Australia they limit it to 12 weeks which I trust that it is just about right.

Mmm well, i believe that anyone should do whatever they want with their body or at least have the possibility of doing so... i mean if you like colour pink and i don't i won't chase you saying pink is awful or an abomination to society... If you like colour pink you have every right to do so and if i like purple and you don't then i also have the right of doing so. This was a pretty lame example but you can also imagine the situation with religions. My point is: If you don't like abortion the don't have one and that's it. Mind. Your. Own. Business.

I support it for the women that cannot give birth to a child without harming themselves in the process, for rape victims, and very slightly for teenage girls who were just confused when they did it and cannot take on the consequences without sacrificing a lot of their future plans

I do support abortion .
If a woman doesnt want her child and is ready to give it up. then it is best she does before causing that child any more harm like abandonment .
If a woman was a rape victim then the child would remind her of bad times and could grow up being unloved . so abortion is better for the kid.

I don't support abortion because we learned in (public) school that human life begins at conception. It might be "convenient" for a woman to terminate her unplanned pregnancy but we're talking about a human life here.

I recommend not drinking when going on dates. A lot of girls I know got pregnant (and got sexually transmitted diseases) because they went on dates, drank alcohol before the meal, had sex with a guy (even though they really didn't want to) and found out later that they got pregnant!

I disagree with abortion, abortion is morally wrong and it undergoes many ethical issues and it isn't convenient at all and it does create a lot of psychological and mental issues and it has a huge impact amongst people in society. It is a womens body, a womens morals, a womens life and it is a womens choice. The bible states that life begins once the fetus "has taken its first breathe" Abortion is forbidden in the peaceful religion of Islam as abortion is just taking an innocent souls life away...:confused:

I'm in between.

I support because, just thinking the pain the rape victims go through. Raising up the child of the person who disrespected you and took advantage of you. Who knows, the child might even suffer, the mother might take out her anger on the child.

I do not support because, no one has the right to take away another human's life. It is a sin, imagine after doing an abortion you go on your daily life and everyday it'll hunt you that you just killed a person. It is a bit disgusting. Children are blessings, they are not curses.

I could not disagree more. I say pregnancy termination is most certainly not a sin.
In fact, I think pregnancy termination has been a saving grace in preventing birth mortality, unplanned parenthood, inbred disease, overpopulation, and just general unmanageable pregnancy commitment.
I say any place that is to serve birth control should provide access to pregnancy termination.

Pregnancy is when a woman has a living human being growing inside of her uterus.
Pregnancy termination is the ending of that human life.
Surgical abortion (as opposed to natural abortion/a miscarriage) is deliberately ending that life.
Deliberately ending a human life is killing.
One of the Ten Commandments is: Thou Shalt Not Kill.
Disobeying the Ten Commandments is a sin.
Therefore pregnancy termination (if it's deliberately done aka abortion on demand) is a sin.

Pregnancy termination is birth mortality.

Preventing parenthood (unplanned or otherwise) is using birth control to prevent conception from taking place. Once conception has taken place, a woman has a cell with 23 pairs of chromosomes aka a human being (a zygote) in her fallopian tube or uterus, which means she is now a mother. (We learned that in high school biology class - in a public school.)

If a child (zygote, embryo, or fetus) is "inbred", often a miscarriage takes place.
If the child is born with physical birth defects, is that any reason to kill the human being? (Who amongst us is perfect?)
If the child has mental/psychological defects, we usually don't know until the person is older - such as a child, teenager, or adult. There are plenty of criminally insane adults in prisons, psych wards, etc. who have already committed horrific crimes. Is it okay to kill them?

Concerning overpopulation: again, I can think of other people I'd rather kill first (such as criminally insane psychopaths) before killing an innocent human being whose only "crime" is being unplanned/unwanted.

Regarding general unmanageable pregnancy commitment: if that includes having to carry a human being in our uterus for nine months - yes, that's not good but the fact remains that we have a living person growing inside of us and even if it's not convenient, the right thing to do is to allow that human being to live and grow/develop. Then when he/she is born, we can give that child to a loving family who desperately would love to have a baby.
If we're old enough to have sex and get pregnant, we're old enough to take responsibility for our actions and do the right thing by that person growing inside of us.

In cases of rape and incest, we need (as a society) to treat the girl/woman as the victim - not blame/shame her. That way, she'll be more inclined to get medical care as soon as possible after the violation - thus preventing pregnancy from taking place.
Children, yes children, need to be taught in schools about incest, inappropriate touching, etc. - in the hopes that if a girl is being molested, she will tell a trusted adult (a teacher, school nurse, etc.) and the pedophile will be removed from the home.

If the mother's life is in danger, that can be determined by a medical professional who will, of course, put the mother's life first - so it's not a case of abortion on demand.

Indeed, one of the 10 Commandments is "Thou shalt not commit murder" (5).
However, just how well is this Commandment followed? We kill bacteria every time we wash our hands. If you walk outside and look for some place to eat, there's a 95% chance that they will be posting meat as the number one source of sustenance. Is meat murder? I think so, and that is why I turned vegetarian, and think everyone else should as well.
I potentially agree, actually. In some cases, pregnancy termination can be a sin. Keep that child, then.

But of course, pregnancy termination isn't here to say "stay or go". It's just a fail-safe, as it's potentially unreasonable to expect that pregnant persons everywhere will always be carrying the child to term, and if it's even potentially needed, then it is needed. Not all parents live in bright, clear, shiny societies where you can always just know after 3 weeks if a child conceived is fine to keep.

I think the 10 Commandments is referring to taking a human life only.

A mother doesn't have to either keep her child or have her child killed. She can always give him/her up for adoption. I don't know of anyone who expects a mother to keep the child.

But as a living human being exists in his/her mother's uterus, let's allow him/her to live.

Who knows what we've missed out on (as a society/human race) by all those individuals not having a chance to live to adulthood. Yes, some could have turned out to be another Hitler but maybe some could have found a cure for cancer or created masterpieces such as beautiful music, etc. But we'll never know because they weren't given a chance to live and grow.

It wouldn't be "another Hitler" we're afraid of, more like "another Columbine kid" or "another Osama", anyway.

It’s a difficult question because there are different way to to set this reasoning. We can talk of religion, of rights or of liberty, and probably we obtained different answer for each questions but... I support abortion. I support it because must be taken into consideration the motivations of do this act. The motivations are lot and different, from the haven’t the possibility of take care the child to the woman victim of sexual violence. If a woman with serious problems, like not having a home, being a prostitute, or a toxic, get pregnant, what can she do? If the child born with problems or in a second moments had problems for the mother's life? And if the baby was born on the street? And if the baby lives on the street? If the baby was born in a desolate part of the world? If the family homes didn’t know about these children? Another example is a child seriusly sick, like in vegetative state or without arms or legs, and this is life? Abortion, in many cases, is an awareness for a possible and future child. It is also true that in many cases you want to have an abortion because you get pregnant incidentally (if you don’t use the precautions) and this is questionable, infact is irresponsible. But the abort must exist for those women or for those children have no other possibility. This is my think and I accept other way to think. We are no one to judge...

I would say Abortion is a SIN. No one in this world has any right to kill a little cute unborn soul. Some people argue saying if the couple feel they can not bring up a kid, abortion will be the best solution in that case. My point is, if the damn couple should be knowing if they can spend to bring up a new born baby or not. If they feel they can not why do they even indulge in "THAT"? Even if they want to let then DO IT in the safe way. Why to get pregnant and kill a pure life?

What do you think about it?
I don’t think abortion is a sin. Obviously, if the couple isn’t able to bring up a child they shouldn’t be having unprotected sex but mistakes happen. Also what of a young girl gets raped? She would have to live her whole life knowing that this was her rapists child. And even if she tried to forget about it this child would remind her of it every single day for the rest of her live.
