Reasons Why Abortion Should Remain Legal

Abortion has been a topic of debate for centuries (if not longer). This article cites some reasons why abortion should remain legal.

The debate as to whether abortion should be legal or not has been a long-standing issue, and it is not going to go away anytime soon. And what about the religious argument? Many religious individuals swear that abortions are an evil act. But are they?

Rape

If a woman is raped, and becomes pregnant, shouldn’t she have the right to abort the fetus? Put yourself in her shoes. Would you want to be constantly reminded that you were raped? What’s that you say? It doesn’t matter to you? Well good for you. But not every woman is going to be like you. Some women would look at the child and only remember the pain that they experienced. And they should be allowed to abort the fetus in cases like this. These women will more than likely find a way to have an abortion even if told no, so there’s no point in trying to stop them.

Life or Death Situation for the Mother

What if the mother’s life is at stake? If the mother decides to become pregnant, but it turns out that she’ll die if she has her child then doesn’t she have the right to choose whether or not she should keep the fetus? Or what if having the baby will kill them both, but having an abortion would save the mother’s life? It would be awful not to have any say in that type of situation.

What if it Happened

Let’s say that America goes back to making abortions illegal. What would happen then? Some women with money would travel to other parts of the world where abortions are legal. And other women would simply find someone to perform an abortion for them in the United States. Others, would simply attempt to rid themselves of the child on their own. This creates risk for both the woman and the fetus. The whole argument that legalized abortion increases death is a fallacy.

Whether it’s legal or illegal abortion will more than likely occur at the same rate. It’s just that the individuals who die changes. When legal, it’s mostly the fetus that dies; however, if illegal, then most abortions will be between a mix of the mother and the fetus dying. The mother dies more frequently when abortions are illegal due to her taking greater risks when she tries to rid herself of the unwanted pregnancy. The mother may try to rid herself of the baby on her own, or use an inexperienced physician.

And then some women would just have the baby and try to rid themselves of it after the birth. Most of the time they will just leave it in an ally, or on someones doorstep. And yes, some women would give the child up for adoption. And face it, just because a baby is given up for adoption doesn’t mean that he or she will be adopted. Adoption agencies are already overcrowded as it is.

The God Card

Many religious people seem to think that God (s) is against abortion. The honest answer is that it’s unlikely that anyone really knows how divine entities think (assuming they exist in the first place). You may have your holy book that seems to suggest that such and such is an evil act, but that doesn’t make you right. Meanings change throughout the centuries, and what was once considered nefarious, may now be considered normal. Or vice versa.

A woman should have the right to decide whether or not she wants to keep a child. If women were to lose that right then they might take drastic measures, which would probably cause more harm then good. Just let the mother decide. In the end, legal or illegal, the mother will still be the one to make the choice.

    I have had three abortions, all when I was in my twenties. For a long time I didn’t think about it at all. I grew up in a troubled home, and it took me a long time to find myself. I found myself in many troubled relationships with men, and seemed to seek out abusive situations (emotional, not physical). I had a lot of emotional troubles and spent a lot of time in counseling from age 16 on, due to a very dysfunctional (but loving) family. At the time, it was a relief to have the abortions. I just was not mentally and emotionally prepared. To say that it was a whimsical or light hearted time would be wrong. I have always been a very loving, spiritual person, I am a nurse. I even joined the catholic church in my late twenties! Now, in my late thirties, I find myself questioning everything about abortion. I recognize each side of the debate has valid points and concerns. I do NOT sit around lamenting my lost children. I DO regret that I went through so much personal pain and treated myself so badly, and that the end result was abortion. I have been in a very loving relationship with a man for about 10 years now. If I got pregnant, I would definitely have the child, period. I am such a different person now. The abortion debate and my personal experience has made me really evaluate and question my spiritual beliefs and religious affiliations. I do not know where I belong or what I really believe. Am I going to hell? I really don’t know. I wasn’t raised to think that way, but I am very much a deep thinker. I do not view religion emotionally, but very logically. I am on a spiritual path, and I don’t know how it will turn out. One thing I would like to leave you with is that the process of having an abortion was not, at least for me, an easy thing. Yes, it was convenient as a single woman with emotional issues, but it is something that I still think about often.

    I highly hate abortion! Im strongly against it. I think that if you got raped, you can put the baby up for adoption. How come so many people are against murder and homicide but yet so many of those people think abortion is okay? I dont think that ANYBODY has the right to take away a life. 1 life is just as important as the next. And also I think that even if its your body, theres another body inside you that depends on you. And what if you were aborted? you wouldnt be having the child in the first place. Think of the unborn child. And if somebodys in a coma, sleeping, or is helpless, then why dont we murder them too? Its just like aborting a baby!

    abortion is completely right. the baby does not even begin to be human until a month after conception. by then the woman will have already had an abortion.

    i agree with emily. there’s adoption. you get raped, you dont want the kid, adoption is available. and i think abortion is murdering. your taking a HUMAN’S life away. they do bad things to the baby. plus thousands of women died from abortion. plus USE CONDOMS!!!!

  9. Someone special=]

    ABORTION ISN’T RIGHT DUDE!!!
    if you get raped and you get pregnant and you dont want the child then put him/her up for adoption instead of killing them!!!
    if killing a human is illegal then abortions shold be illegal too!!
    and if you have sex and get pregnant then thats your fault, if you know that there is a such thing as BIRTH CONTROL and getting your TUBES TIDE then do that because its better then killing a baby!!
    as a matter of fact if you dont wanna get pregnant then dont even have sex, why take the risk?
    and for all you who planned on getting an abortion i just wanna let you know, YOU’RE STUPID AND YOU COULD DIE!
    seriously, common sense dudes.

    i can’t believe what you wrote about God being wrong and doubting his existence!!
    Rape is not an exeption for abortion
    like they’ve said adoption is always
    an option, there are plenty of people
    out there who can’t have a baby and
    are willing to take care of the one
    you don’t want and are willing to
    kill. People who think abortions
    should be legal are really selfish
    ….soo kill the one who can’t speak
    for himself/herself, they can’t
    fight back right? You disgust me!

    i think abortions are wrong. it is not right to take a life. once the fetus is attached it is eating of you and it is living. it is murder to kill a humanbian

    WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE SAYING???
    if someone gets raped, do you think they would want to have that baby??
    every single time they looked at that child or felt them kick then they would remember their teribble experience

    so all you wacky christians or whatever just SHUT UP!!

    Abortion is wrong. Americans are giving to many excuses to live their lives in moral destruction. If a teen or adult choose to have sex outside of marrrige(speaking for the Theocracy in which our Nation was founded under God Almighty) they should take full responsibilty to raising that child. Sex is based for marrige not dating or someone you think you love. I know rape is extremly wrong but taking the God given life of somone who will grow up to be a leader and cause an impact on our country. The reason our Nation is so corrupt is because us as a people have become corrupt and we are doing what would benefit only ourselves and not our country as a whole.

    To me, it could go either way but, I am leaning more towards abortion is okay. I believe that a women or teen should not have to live with the burden of being raped! If it was a traumatic situation why be reminded of the pain that they endured. I know people may say its morally wrong but I think that it depends on the circumstances. To all the bible huggers you should not believe everything it says. There is no proven fact the bible is accurate. Don’t get me wrong I believe in god but I don’t bible hug. I know there is a law against homicide but, even though a women conceives that it is only a fetus! The law goes by human life as in born individuals.

    If it’s a life, protect it. If it’s not, then you can remove it like a tumor. Maybe we should be able to kill the babies up until the age of one..you know…give the Mom and Dad a few more options…..because…mabey….the mother made a mistake in having the baby and is now having a real tough time….yep….more options indeed…no… wait…how about until the age of 5…yes sir indeed..more options…you know…for the economic and emotion welfare of the family. The Jews wern’t really human…just ask Hitler. The law said it’s ok to exterminate them. Of course then…the black population…the law said they were just property…and of course if the law says it then it must be ok. And then the the number of cultures that would bury their children alive (after they were born) because they were the wrong gender…..yes…more options….this is what I call freedom….to kill the innocent whenever I’m going through a tough time.

    For many years, i have been against abortion considering that I was to be aborted since my mother was pregnant at the age of 16. But now I think I grew out of it. Bless my mother for keeping me, she was strong. But not all of us share the same strength, also my mother got pregnant to escape the horrible situation she was in.
    But not everyone shares the same lifestyle or beliefs. All of you guys can sit here an go on and on about how you\’re against it, but if you were in some these harsh situation i doubt half of you would feel the same.
    As for it being legal. Why not? It is indeed a woman\’s right. A woman should be able to have abortion if she cannot take of her child or being able to go through the carrying the baby and then giving the baby up for abortion. Sometimes our situations differ and lead us to different paths.
    Indeed, it is murder. Everytime I see an abortion ad my heart shutters. But all because it shudders my heart doesn\’t mean that I should deny woman their rights. I mean come on now, we go and murder innocent civilian on war fronts, but somehow its still ok. Because they were \”just there\”.
    As for religion, whether God believes its wrong or right he still blessed us with free will. It is up to someone\’s own morals to decide if they can have abortion or not. Only people themselves can truly know what\’s right for themselves.
    But however, one thing I think should be limited is the amount of abortions that a woman is to have. It is ridiculous if women use abortion as if it was a birth control pill.

    First off, as a thought to everyone who is saying adoption instead of abortion, think about it. If every women who had abortions, had instead chose adoption, there would be no way that all those children would find happy loving homes, and live happily ever after.

    Secondly, although I’m still not entirely sure about abortion as a whole, I do agree that there are a few, albeit VERY few, times when abortion should be taken. In my opinion, abortion should be legalized, but with a few specific rules regarding it.

    And third, for anyone claiming that it should be illegal solely based on the Bible, there is a thing called Separation of Church and State. That is, you cannot, and should not, make a political decision based on your religious views. This country is made up of many different people, with many religions, and by making a political decision based on your religion, you are excluding part of the country from this democracy! You are saying that, “Your religion isn’t mine, therefore it doesn’t matter.” And THAT is the act of a real terrorist.

    Women have cited ’social reasons’ , not mother’s health or rape/incest as their motivation in approximately 93% of all abortions.
    And for your information, there are so many complications that come along with getting an abortion.
    Physical problems range from hemorrhage and infection to sterility and even death.
    Psychological effects range from depression and mental trauma to divorce and even suicide.
    You are basically saying that murder is ok, as long as it’s a convienence to the mother.
    If you are not planning to get pregnant and wish it not to happen, stop having sex, and if you choose not to do so, there are consequences for every action.
    LIVE UP TO YOUR ACTIONS.

    You make me sick.

    On August 31, 2008 at 5:04 am


    Well, i think abortion is right.
    If you are raped, then it’s better to do abortion.Every time you see the child, you will remember the time when you were being raped.And that’s awful!You may get depressed and even try to kill yurself.
    Even though in the adoption, the child will never get the mother’s love.We can’t guarantee that the child can get parents that would love them.
    It is better to see a child being aborted than seeing them living a miserable life.Because then, the child is still in the womb. So, they haven’t experience life yet.
    If God wanted them to live, even though the mother abort them, they would still be alive isn’t it?What God intended to do, nobody can stop Him right??

    so then why were you stupid enough to continue in such relationships and have sex when you knew the consequences. why didn’t you stop the first time? i believe that both sides have very strong points and abortion should only be performed under some circumstances, and carelessness is not one of them.

    I also think that telling people that they are bad and evil only serves to make the people who want abortions not want them through pure peer pressure and guilt and not one ounce of actual morals guiding them. If you want people to understand you dont yell and call names. Give them some real proof or something that could make them realize their possible mistake on their own. If you only play the guilt card the only thing you are doing is being a jerk

    You christians are gicing your religion a judgemental name. ABortion, like all else, should be viewed from all sides. Open your minds and hearts, and listen. I beleive abortion is murder, and I sadden at the loss of each life BUT we CANNOT judge or pretend to know. The people in an abortion situation may have gone through hell, and I see you christians are the first to point fingers and judge. Why do you not read the lines in the bible. Unconditional love, Open mindness, Do not judge.

    Follow nothing blindly, do not become fundametalist christians. Why must you be so judging? I do not see loving Jesus as petty, harsh and two sided.

    It’s not only the mother to decide. It’s the baby.
    A Life opened to every human being is a gift. People should not take life away easily. Why should human choose someone’s fate? If the women lived long, then it’s the same for the baby. Give them their chance now. Let them know and experience the world whether from happiness or grief. Every human can experience grief, loneliness, hopelessness, bad memories, but its something we can grow up and matured in.it is something we can endure it. Abortion should be illegal. Logically and emotionally. For scientific answer, a fetus is not just a fetus. It is part of the cycle of human being. Were we once that too?

    On November 3, 2008 at 6:41 pm


    Abortion is wrong. For a woman who got raped. The rapist is the one who should die not the baby. A killer killing a innocent baby and left the killer alive somewhere? Now that’s just wrong. What is wrong with our society? If we think child abuse is wrong, harassment, rape, murder is all wrong? Why not abortion? Abortion is scary and cruel to like the other rest? We are hypocrites!

    On November 15, 2008 at 12:34 pm


    OMFG ABORTIONS is OK. Bur only if it harms the mother in any way, I f the mother is not ready to take care of the child, DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY ORPHANS ARE OUT THERE YEA JUST PUT UP FOR ADOPTION AND INCREASE THE STAT!, Yes a baby still in the womb is a life but do you want to bring the child in to a family that cant care for it, or to a life where it has to deal with being not wanted, messes them up in the head you know. ALL you people care about is O id a life, Can you promise a Good life for the child? you really expect a mother to give up a child after it has been born,its harder then you all thin it is even if the mother can not take care of the child, how will the mother be like seeing her child being taken away from her, or if the person was raped will the mother love the child? it may be to them a bad memory. Think people what is the future outcome

  43. Jade Black

    On November 15, 2008 at 3:54 pm


    Abortions should be LEGAL.
    Yes, God gave us life, but God also gave us the right to choose. The Freedom to Choose is one of the three greatest gifts He gave us.

    Yes, a woman could get give a child up for adoption…but GIVING BIRTH is a huge part of it. You are asking a woman who has been raped to go through more pain because of her attacker.

    I agree with Jasie.

    We need to take care of the children that are already here before we start making more. I love children and i love God.

    ADOPTING kids is the best way to fight abortion, not banning it. The foster system and orphanages dont treat those kids well.

    This question goes out to the Pro-Life people, if you care about kids so much than the ophanages would be empty. How many kids have you adopted?

    I am Pro-CHOICE and I have adopted 7 kids in all.

    And for the record, women dont have abortion parties, you know. It is not an easy decision to make. People dont call their friends and laugh about it.

    Until you are in that woman’s skin, mental statues, and history, you should not say anything.

  45. steve

    On November 17, 2008 at 9:09 pm


    No, you see it doesn’t matter what outcome the child will face in the future, pain or suffer, because did you know living is the greatest gift from God? YOu face life and try to endure it. If a women dies, then she dies. We all have limited time and can end anytime, fast, or slow. So same thing. A baby should live to feel it too. IF you care for a mother to live… why not baby. at least show some life? as for @jade black, yea i totally agree, God did give us the freedom for CHOICE and that is ABSOLUTELY for the Baby as well isn’t it?
    By the way for Jasie, um… it doesn’t mean the outcome for the baby will be suffering and dealing with unwanting family… YOu see, that is not the point. Because even without abortion, everyone is dealing that such as divorce, dad cheating or mom cheating…etc. That is human mistake but the point is, we can endure it! At least we try… Better to live knowing life then dying without knowing who your parent is even they don;t want you. Also, the raper is the one who should be kill than the baby. Why does the mother have to put blame on the innocent child? If the baby is killed, she will still have the memory from the RAPIST! Who cares about memories… everyone has bad memories, at least it wasn’t their fault if they got rape but if it was sexual practice, that’s their problem.

  46. steve again

    On November 17, 2008 at 9:18 pm


    Also, if you don’t think life shouldn’t be given to everyone, then what if it was you? You wouldn’t be here discussing this. Or you would be watching people discuss this and wish you were alive to tell them off! I think i would!
    There are lots of nice foster homes out there. But i understand there is unwanted place too but that’s why we have the system of child protection if any harm comes to them.

    On November 17, 2008 at 9:31 pm


    Wow S485 —^ (up there) has a point! If abortion is not a murderer, then so the fetus does not count as human? Does that mean, i was once not human and became human? That is confusing. It\’s human and human or non human to non human.
    Which is more bigger? killing a baby to kill a memory, or baby birth with bad memory?
    But the bad memory of the rapist, it will also leave BAD MEMORY OF KILLING A BABY RIGHT?

    I would rather have the attacker feel guilty of raping the mom than the mom to feel guilty to kill the BABY!!! READ THIS AND THINK! Thank you! Love you all~

    for this person ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    No proof that God exist? Hah! You don’t have PROOF That he doesn’t exist. I bet you are atheist. But i wonder if you are weak atheist or strong atheist. If you don’t know what i mean, then you better go study! I am learning Theology at young age and already got certificate in such degree that I can shove you down as much to research I done over the years. But since this question is based on Abortion, won’t go any further. But if there is some issue about God existence, then I am willing to step forward and prove to you! Can’t wait till your jaw drops dead!
    Abortion shouldn’t be done but yea, just like drugs, no matter if it is illegal or not, women will find ways to get rid of it illegally. But then again, it should still set to be restricted. It should be practice to influence women to give for adoption or foster so that the society would recognize that it is wrong for abortion. If they kill a baby for the reason to save one’s bad memories from rape, that is a unconditional love! It is cruel and wrong because it’s like taking all the blame on the baby. I’ll rather kill the rapist to paid off bad memories. Abortion doesn’t erased the fact that you got the baby. Guilt will still live inside you. If you kill the the baby, then you are as much worse as the rapist. You have no mercy or justice like the rapist, you kill something that is weak against you like the rapist, you care only for the beneficial to yourself than the baby just like the rapist! How sinful and corrupted people are! There is called forgiveness, letting the past go away and starting new and giving one dearest life to an innocent baby. Abortions should be ill

    Okay I am a christian, and sorry for those people who believe in God to have such forceful act and languages. It’s a clear that we all should have a loving action and that I hate the action of abortion, not the people in person.
    I agree that abortion never exist. It did very well in the way past, where people never knew about abortion. Watch Les Miserable. It’s very sad and the mom cares for her baby with love even to sacrifice herself though the child came from a man she did not love. People should not care where the child came from but to care that the baby is still a loving being and if you raise it well, the child will be better and different than it’s father.

    Abortion is a choice for people to take. I am against abortion except for rapes, medical emergencies. My school assignments is to take one side and debate about it with friends. With my research, I learned good points on both side. Abortion can be dangerous, but that is a choice for the women. No one can pick but her, even the father, because its the woman who is going through the pregrancy and the pain during birth, But teens mother should give birth, because its their fault that they have a baby. They must face their mistake, even if they suffer.

    Abortion is I believe wrong, because your taking another human life, most of the time for your own selfish reasons. I’ve read a great deal of the articles on this topic and the PRO-CHOICE sides greatest argument is “What if the women is raped, or if her life is at stake” besides this they fail to comment on all the other abortions taking place. For a fact, out of 44 million abortions each year, only 1% is a result of a rape victim, and only 6% are because of health related problems. according TO http://www.abortionno.org/Resources/fastfacts.html So WHY ON GOD’S GREEN EARTH ARE ABOUT 90 PERCENT OF THESE ARGUMENTS CONCERNING THIS. What about the other 93%? Doesn’t someone PRO-CHOICE want to comment about that. Hope these facts help you with views on this issue.

    abortion is a choice. you don’t have to get an abortion. its none of your business what a woman decides to do with her body its her choice not yours. get over it.. its legal there is nothing you can do about it the politicans don’t care what you think so give it up!

    Yea, abortion is a choice but it doesn’t mean all choice is a good one… We are all have responsibility when it comes to choice. If evvery choice is possible… than murdering, cheating, lying is all good choice. So we are free to do them? Yea of course. Then it’s same for killing someone? wow if yes, then our society is doom. for empo9 up there, Im glad ppl don’t just give up. PPl who give up are ppl who sit back watch and do nothing… If you describe choice, make sure it’s call the “equal right choice” because baby need a choice. And if not… I declare that I have a CHOICE to defend my rights that ABORTION is wrong.

    I was a victim of a very violent rape three years ago, I had gotten to the doctors in enough time to get a plan b, but if I hadn’t, even if I had opted for adopting out the baby, those nine months would have been even more painful, not only every time it kicks r moves, but people congradulaing me, and asking who the father was, that would have been traumatic all in itself. I think in a situation like mine, it should not be frowned upon. I was a virgin, I was not doing anything ‘unholy’, I was attacked, and I couldnt have handled a child, physically because I was only 15 and I am very petite, or emotionally. I say it should be illegal to those being irresponsible and using abortion as a birth control, but those in rape situations or medical situations it definatly should be allowed.

    ok I don’t see how in any way abortion can be right. Its murder. And honestly it just like saying that your mother can choose weather you live or die. So say my mom didn’t want me. So she can come to me and kill me and it would be okay. Ya i know what you are going to say what about rape? Since when does two wrongs make a right the man rapes you… you kill… no choice for the baby. And yes the baby in the womb is a human. They have a heart beat, they think, they are just developing. Well teenagers are developing too so does that mean we can kill them?? no. And life or death think of it as a best friend if you both were in trouble and her life depended on you wouldn’t you die for her? If not then that is just being selfish. I dare you to comment back. And i hope i have at least tried your mind. Thank you.

    Well, I myself am indifferent about abortion. What if the girl wasn;t tying to have a baby but her contraception didn’t work? What if she was raped?? What about a case of incest?????… The girl could be drug addicted. Yeah, she could put the baby up for adoption, or put it in foster care, but I myself grew up in foster care, and let me tell you that the foster system is not the business. Not all of those “cute little babies” get adopted. And it could have problems coming from a drug addicted mother. So it grows up and emancipates and ends up homeless, only 2 have a kid, not be able to take care of it and abandon it…. Abortion isn’t that bad. It’s a personal choice. And I personaly wouldn’t have an abortion because i was 1 month pregnant and got into a car crash and lost it… but back to the topic, you can’t really blame someone for having one because there must be a reason ehy they’re having it, ya digg?

    On January 29, 2009 at 12:16 am


    guys, of course it should be legal. think about it! The first ammendment states freedom of choice! If the baby is a mother’s she should be allowed to do what she wants with that baby! Some parent beat their kids if they get pregnant! There you go another reason. What if they can’t afford health care for the baby and they sneak off and put the baby on the streets?! The baby would have to suffer alone and not cared for! Of course its killing a baby but our world would definatley not be good without it! Its definatley i thought it was wrong at first too but you have to really think about it!

    i truly believe that abortion is WRONG!!! you think that you’re gonna make your life better by killing your unborn child! DUDE, THAT’S THE WORST THING YOU CAN DO! if you’ve ever been raped, you can still have the baby and then put it up for adoption…. but if you were stupid enough to open up your legs with no birth control or condoms then you need to deal with the consequences!!!! you’re and ADULT…. you should start acting like one and take of your responsibilities!!!!!

    On March 3, 2009 at 10:18 pm


    I think Abortion is right because if they get raped they should have the choice. People say atleast put it up for adoption the mother shouldnt have to go through so much pain and plus how about if the kid doesn’t get adopted then you just made him suffer.
    & how about if the mother cant support the kid, so in conclusion it should be the mothers decision.
    AND FOR THE LAST TIME YOUR NOT KILLING A BABY A “FETIS” ISN’T EVEN BORN SO YOU CANT BE POSSIBLY KILLING ANYTHING.

    Stop trying to legislate your religious beliefs. How about then you make it illegal for christians? And you think its sad that people don’t believe in god…I believe in harry potter more than I believe in god…at least Harry Potter is backed by 7 books. They are both Fictional Novels.

    And those who say put the baby up for adoption, a woman has to go through 9 months of reminder of their “rape baby” and then deal with medical costs of having a kid that they didn’t want, just to give it up? You are aware also that in america there are THOUSANDS of kids that need to be adopted, and thousands that never are, right?

    i agree with the author of this article, abortion must remain legal.
    everyone who decides to revert to their own religious beliefs when attempting
    to regulate the choices that women are free to make based on their situations in life are just
    off base and they really have no right to make commentary on other peoples’ lives.
    every woman should be allowed to make whatever decision she wants to because it is her
    own body and her own life. God is not living her life for her, and neither are any of you.

    Youre right. Women have every right to get an abortion.Even though it might be in the bible. The bible was made by humans not god.Plus do you want a baby to come into the world where it is not wanted. I agree with brad since there are many children that are up for adoption that are never adopted. Another thing is many adults cant afford to take care of their kids.

    What is wrong with you people?? How could you force a woman to choose a path they are not willing to take? If you can enforce no abortions on them and take their right to their bodies then what else can you enforce on them?
    No contraception can fully protect you so it’s not their fault for falling pregnant.
    What is with you people saying “aww poor baby, you’re taking a life”? What about the life of the woman carrying the foetus? Having that potential child would ruin their life forever. It wouldn’t benefit the child if the mother gave birth to it because she wouldn’t be able to meet the demands of motherhood. If the woman was to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, the result is unwanted children. It is possible for the woman to put the baby up for adoption but like other people have said, they may grow up unloved, uncared for and are more subjected to delinquency and for you religious people, make more sins than killing one foetus. Also, you religious people cannot enforce your beliefs on other people. You say that god doesn’t want people killing off foetus. How would you know what god wants or doesn’t want? Is it because a book called the Bible writen by normal humans told you so? I’m not trying to diss religion but I can’t believe you would allow religion to cloud your judgment of reason and rights. If you are saying that the baby has the right to life, you are comparing rights with the woman. It’s just like comparing rights with other animals. Many people aren’t willing to think about their rights because you think your rights are more important. In that case, the rights of women can’t even compare to those of a foetus. Also, think about when a woman’s life is in danger because of the foetus she is carrying. If she doesn’t abort it then she will die. Abortion is always a risk but it is worth it for those reasons. There are so many unwanted births for a range of reasons. It should be the woman’s choice and only hers to abort a baby, not someone else’s. And for that to happen, that choice has to be available.
    PRO-CHOICE =]

    I seriously disagree. abortion should not be legal because never in modern times has the state given the right to have another killed in order to solve his or her social or economic problems. All of you people that think it’s okay to have an abortion disgust me. What if you’re own mother had decided to abort you? Would you still agree and say “go ahead and kill me since you have every right to do so”? I don’t think so. everyone has the right to live and that’s something that you can’t just take away. So all of you that are considering having an abortion, I think that it would be loads better if you went and drowned yourself AFTER you’ve had the baby and have put it up for adoption.

    it depends on the case.. you dont know how it feels to be adopted… i could never put another human bein in that cituation. You have to not only think about yourself. but the child and whether it is a good reson to have an abortion (financially, bad home, etc.) or if it is a good reason to keep it (financially, good home, etc.)

    me again, and also the baby isnt born, doesnt have a brain, isnt even breathing when the time is to have an abortion… I only think it is wrong if you do drugs while pregnant. or try killing it your own way, like being kicked in the stomach on purpose trying to kill the baby. It should be done professionly.. (it happens)

    abortion is very vey wrong unless it is in a life and death situation of both the baby or mother wich is only 6% chance.In our 14th amendment it is clearly stated that no human being shall be killed w/o due process.How come we an kill an inocent baby who is technically is considered to be alive [any orgnism whos heart is beating & growing is nothig but ALIVE!!] by the 1st trimeser the baby has all its genetic make up,brain,eyes,nose,hands]…in my years of experience i’ve never seen something so discusting and gross as an aborted baby!!
    and you guys say it is not alive! well it 100% is.

And i hate the excuse that they will go somewhere else where it’s legal or get it done out of country, thats like saying that since men will beat their wives we should make it legal so it’s safer, or its like saying that wife beaters will fly their wives over seas to a country where it’s legal just to beat them..You abortionist are really truly sick people, even if you dont beleive in god(s) you should still have the respect to protect something as small and helpless as a human child..im sorry, but just because you cant see it doesnt mean that it isnt alive.. i hope whoever wrote this disgusting essay burns in hell and gives birth to spiked balls for the rest of eternity

    If the mother gets raped and has an abortion, that still won’t rid her of the memory of her being raped. She will still have the memory of being raped and will still have nightmares. Abortion is not going to help the rape incident, it will only hinder it.

    if a girl gets raped she should have the right to an abortion because it shouldnt be her responsibilty to pay for all the medical bills of having the baby and then have to keep paying the rest of her life to support a child that she didnt plan for or even want.

    ppol…u r 4geting something. women dont want to kill a life by aborting…they only want 2 keep the lives the way they had them. plus, kids (lets face it) may ruin ur lives if they arent planned. maybe u would have succeded in life by Bcoming a doctor, lawyer, and etc… but couldnt Bcuz u had a baby. it meant responsibility. i didnt want it but u had it. u took many precations not to have it but in the end u did. ur life got ruined by a sucking leech. wouldn’t u hate that child? adoption wouldnt fix anyting. u could put it in adoption but u already lost a year in ur life so it wouldnt change everything. its unfair. plus, what the author of this article said was right: meanings do change over life. i mean, b4, men could have many woman and it would be fine. the woman cwould rarely be taught education. now a days we know (most of us) that that is not right. the bible says that Jacob had offsprings w/ leah, rachel, and slaves. if rachel would have been the one having as many offsprings as bunnies with every1 she saw she would have been killed in a fatal way. but meanings do change, don’t they? of course they do. abortion isnt bad. i do adnitt that you have 2 b completely sure that u want 2 do it because u may regret it. there r ppol that are very loving (something i have to admitt i m not) and wouldnt mind giving up success 4 a child. they have it then. but shouldnt ppol that dont want it have to suffer it? i belivee not. plus, nine months carrying a baby that destroys ur health and will leave permanent damage is a curse 4 those who plan on putting it on adoption. a quote says that 77% of anti-abort ppol are man. well…100% of them wont ever be pregnant. anyway, pregnancy causes terrible pain to women. im only 13 (you may think i have no right to be talking about serious topics when i m this age but i dnt think so.

    okay my sister thinks it only okay if the lady is too young or she was raped.
    Think about it, if you were raped and that person was the one to get you pregnant and you went though the birth and all, would you want to look at the child you give birth to that you’d think of as a horrible reminder? I think that is wrong as well but there would be so much depression.
    its so sad to choose but no matter what even if its better or worse its wrong
    but i think I would rather die that have something inside me die

    every1 has the freedom of choice wether ppl like it or nott.
    if u r raped and u dont want the child u shud get a abortion.
    the baby isnt a human yet its a FETUSS. and it doesnt have a brain or anything yett.
    so abortions should remain legall

    READ WHOlE THING BEFORE YOU JUDGE!!!(by a 14 yr old)

    Everybody in life has to be able to make their own decisons some people (as shown in other comments) do not believe that it is right to have abortions because God says it is not right. I myself personally would not go through with an abortion becasue i am the type who would think about it the rest of my life. I do think the option should be open though.I do have to say that the baby IS NOT ALIVE when they abort it. Some people say that even if you are raped, you should simply put it up for adoption. what if the person who raped you had AID’s? In the end the child would die from suffering. As i said about people who think adotion is the answer, arent there enough children in the world who need someone to love them, and never end up being loved becuase there are so many of them? Why add more to that collection of children who end up not believeing they deserve a family and to be loved and end up being depressed or suicidal? also sometimes the pregancie will take the life of the mother and the child. Why risk losing yourself when if you do die it will pain the ones who love you?Some people may say having abortion is selfish but not having one if there are complications, dont you think it is selfish, taking yourself from your loved ones and having them suffer for rest of there lives? I could go on and on and i havent stated all the factors i would have liked but i think you shouldnt judge the people who choose to abort or no to asbort until you are in there posision!

    Abortion isnt right or wrong, is just base on personal decition and circumstances.When thinking whether or no to have an abortion, I recommend that the person only do it if they feel 100% sure of performing it.on the contrary, being unwilling of an abortion will be very devastating for the person both physically and emotionally. I dont quite understand why there are so many negative people out there that opposed abortion and consider it as the most awful thing,but i quite understand why their comments are so harmful. frist, I believe they haven’t noticed yet the numbers of children who are mistreated and abandon every day. why would be a good reason of having children that would be untended. I will stop because there are so many things that i can say about this promblem and i know i will not stop writing. But please, the only person who decide if they want to have the child or not if the mother Not YOu. Please, I am sure if you see urself in the same situation you will think different.

    You guys are a bunch of southern rednecks. Abortion should be legal. It should be a choice if you want to keep the baby or not. Women have fought long and hard for having the same rights as everyone else and if women can’t even have the right to take control of their reproductive parts, the most private part of the female body, then what good is it to have the right to vote. Taking care of one’s self is more important of taking care of the country. We all make mistakes, but should we be punished so hard that we have to bare the rest of our lives with a baby we don’t even want?

    And If do have a republican president that decides to illegalize abortion, will that stop all abortions? ABSOLUTLY NOT! Women will just go to a country that Abortion is allowed and take it there. Or if they don’t have enough money will just have an abortion in the back alley. The rate of abortions will pretty much stay the same; it’s the rate of deaths that will change. Because when a women feels that it is absolutely necessary to have an abortion they will choose to have one no matter the circumstances weather there’s medical care there or not. In the decades before abortion was legal, an estimated one million people had illegal abortions. Thousands dies. All were forced to behave as if they were criminals.

    No one. But are you telling me that a fetus can dream, feel emotions, and think by its self; It relies on its mother to eat, a fundamental part of life. A fetus turns into a human as soon as it comes out of the womb. What do you think jako? When does a fetus turn into a baby in your opinion?

  101. Jako

    On October 12, 2009 at 2:03 pm


    Ok. so dreaming, feeling emotion, and thinking makes something a person? Who gives anyone the right to decide this? Do we abort something just because in our opinion it isn’t a human? Just because the government decides its not human? When does a baby/fetus gain human rights? Who has the right to decide this?

    Also my opinion on this: As soon as sperm hits the egg, we have no right to play with anything. We set ourselves up as Gods, and this isn’t right. What if the government decides that 2 year olds aren’t human yet? What then?

    Your religious beliefs are irrelivant to this topic. if you dont agree with abortion then you dont get one, but you are not going to decide what i do with my body based upon your religion and moral standing. until you have been put in the situation your opinion is a mere shadow of what does not exist. i am pro-choice and when i got pregnant i got an abortion. no one wants to go through the pain and riduicule of having a baby they did want in the first place just to put it up for adoption. the point of the abortion is to get RID of it, not have it out in the world with someone else. Finally to all you who scream murder, if a woman has a baby at 4 weeks its a miscarrage, is she a murderer? even a accidental murder has consequences its call neglegent homicide. no, because its not murder because it wasnt born.

    “Fact: a fetus can not survive outside the womb until 28 weeks” Ok, so?

    “Fact: abortion is a womans right and she can choose to do with her body whatevr she wants.” It may be her right, but is it right? Also, suicide is doing whatever you want with your body, why is that illegal?

    “Opinion: abortion is murder? No it isnt” That’s your opinion.

    “Fact: Murder is the talking of a concious life (someone who had been born)” Does being born define someone as human?

    “Opinion: religion

    Your religious beliefs are irrelivant to this topic. if you dont agree with abortion then you dont get one, but you are not going to decide what i do with my body based upon your religion and moral standing. until you have been put in the situation your opinion is a mere shadow of what does not exist. i am pro-choice and when i got pregnant i got an abortion. no one wants to go through the pain and riduicule of having a baby they did want in the first place just to put it up for adoption. the point of the abortion is to get RID of it, not have it out in the world with someone else.

    Who says I have a religion? Also, a miscarriage is not murder. And please don’t get into the legal system thing about this, because unless you or I are up to date on the legal system, I don’t think we can accurately say whats involved with the ins and out of the law.

    Dear Cortney, I have a quick question I would like to ask you. This is not intended as any type of attack on your position. The question is really selfish, intended to satisfy nothing more then my own curiosity. You’d think that at age 54 I’d have most of the answers by now, but I don’t. I will not follow up your answer should you give one with any type of rebuttal. Anyway, here is my question: If you personally believed for whatever reason that abortion was murder, would you have had one?

    Thanks,

    Cortney Easton is probably the smartest one of us. It is up to the woman if she wants to put her baby in this world or not. In my opinion if the mother isn’t going to love it then it shouldn’t come. A baby need love, affection, and attention but some one that isn’t prepared to give it to them then they shouldn’t be a mother. And an intentional adoption is absolutely unacceptable.

    I believe that abortion should be made legal. If you don’t want an abortion then you don’t have to get one. But it is truly wrong to stop other women from having one simply because you don’t think its right. In our society we have many different cultures and religions that all believe in dfferent things. But nobody is making it illegal to be apart of the chrstian faith, or any other faith, simply because some people don’t agree with that religion. Everyone is intilted to their own opinion. So it should be the same with Abortion. It is the mother that has to carry the child and give birth to it and nuture it, it is her body so it should be her right to decide. A baby needs love and care and if a woman doesn’t want the child she may fail to provide the child with the love and care it needs, hence neglecting the child. I believe that for an abortion to be legal the procedure must take place in a prescribed hospital, two medical practitioners must be present at the time of the procedure, the procedure must not transpire after twenty weeks gestation, the woman must have given her full consent to the procedure and understand thoroughly what will happen throughout the procedure and at the completion of the procedure.

    Jako,

    Your name and the way you talk indicate to me that you are a guy, therefore it is not your body or you that has to carry or give birth to a child. So you cannot understand the magnitude of what a women goes through when she is pregnant. A lot of women after giving birth get what is known as ‘baby blues’ this means that having the baby has made her depressed. Let me ask you this: If you were raped and got pregnant as the result, would you like to be reminded EVERYDAY of it? See the images of that horrifc event everytime you look at the child? I THINK NOT! You couldn’t possibly understand this topic because you don’t have the connection with the child. You are male and don’t have to carry the child or give birth to it

    all of you anti choice people are stupid.
    look at the effing facts.
    if you don’t like abortion, don’t have one.
    there is a separation of church and state for a reason.

    you can’t force people to have babies if they don’t want them… would it be better to have abortions provided by medical professionals or revert to the back alleys?

    read some literature on the facts behind abortion before you start spewing irrational hate…

    i totally agree… abortion it’s a right each women should have, Every women is free to decide what to do with their body. I think abortion is the best option when you are not sure if u want to be a mother or not. If abortion would be illegal it would still happen at the same rate. Imagine and think about all those babies that are found each day in the middle of the street or river, trash cans, and other…….

    nobody can say anything unless you are in that situation. here’s my story. U or the baby? death will come to u if you have this baby. i broke down. my husband broke down. my family broke down. why was this decision put on me? never in my life would i want to harm anybody in anyway. from hurting somebody’s heart to killing my gift from god. u don’t think i live every second of every day in complete pain. from the time of conception being so delighted to have my husband’s child. MY child. i loved every minute of being pregnant because i held my greatest gift inside of me. no greater love. the doctors told me a nice manner that i had a great chance of dying if i conceived the child. i was so torn up. they said it as if it was so simple. obviously we know the outcome of my decision. i chose to live. i can’t look at myself in the mirror. i regret my decision everyday. when ur in that moment u will never know what it’s like. unless i was raped i will not make an opinion about whether it is right or not to abort. i’m not asking for sympathy but u guys need to shut up. im sorry but i have been living in complete agony. i am changed. i am weak. i am divorce. i want to remain invisible. nobody looks at me the same way. i think i took it so hard is because u just don’t even think about abortion when u are so ready to have ur child. i never even thought about it. that’s my story. for or against it? it’s easy to say abortion isnt for u until a circumstance actually happens to u…

    I think all of you are selfish, we all know there is no god, as a matter of fact Hitler the father should have burned all religious books. We see priests being homo and touching young boys. So much for the word of God huh? a women should have the right to do what they want, no ghost like god should make decisions for people who exist. plus if people want to have sex, they can, doesnt matter with how many or with who..hit it, quit it, and say you never did it. People should get out of others buisness and let women have their own rights. If a women is raped, no condom is going to be used. Im sure if a damn nun got raped she wouldnt want to have the child.

    On November 19, 2009 at 11:44 am


    ABOPRTION SHOULD BE LEGAL
    It is a woman’s choice whether or not she should have that child.
    Lets review a few things.

    1. For all of you ignorant people, when someone is raped, he isn’t going to use a condom, so don’t tell me that I was irresponsible when he forced me into his pleasures.

    2. Not everyone who has sex is irresponsible. If I’m on the pill and I use a condom with my significant other, and SOMEHOW I get pregnant, how the hell are you to tell me that I wasn’t responsible?!

    3. You may say that every child has a right to life, but how would they know what life is when the fetus is still dependant on the mother to survive?

    4. And last, it is my choice, my body, and my decision. I can’t believe any woman would be against abortion. It’s the right to your BODY. Stay strong, not only for yourself but for the rest of the women in the world.

    Who cares if you do or dont “agree” with abortion for any reason? IT IS THE MOTHERS CHOICE. Not yours. If she wants to, let her. If you were raped and became pregnant Just because you woud keep it, then give it away doesnt mean it should be that way for everyone. NO one is telling you that you have to have an abortion, its a choice thing moron. Why should it matter to you if someone gets an abortion anyway? What business of it is yours? I think they should be free to.

Rape is a terrible thing…but its not the babies fault his mother was raped…dont punish him/her for it.Punish the person who CAUSED you that pain. God bless.

    Dang, i came on this website to find some more reasons for why abortions are right in some cases. But it is a subject where you can agrue both cases, I agree that abortions are okay just as long as its not used as a form of birth control. There are situations where its the right thing to do and i dont consider it murder at all because the “child” is not a child yet it does not feel pain or feel anything. But everyone does have there own opinion so thats that..

    I am against abortion. I do not believe that it is right. And I don’t think I will ever do it in my life. Now I’m not going to say “never”, because I am a fifteen year old girl. I’m not sure what will happen in my future, but for now, I am against abortion. In my debate class though, we will be having this debate. And I was forced support abortion. I think abortion should not be illegalized, because you are right. Women are still going to find ways to get rid of the fetus. Not only will they be killing the fetus, but the could also possibly be endangering themselves. That is the only reason why I think abortion should remain legal. It’s better to do it without hiding it and with a professional, then to do it on your own and almost killing yourself in the process. Those are my thoughts, and that is how I intend to win the debate tomorrow. But once again, before you guys go off on me. I am against abortion, and I know that anyone who does it, is killing a person for no reason except for the fact that it just wasn’t “the right time” for them.

    Abortions should be illegal, because it is a fact that the life of a baby starts at conception, and babies can feel the pain of abortions. they are humans, it should be a murder if you abort them. i hope you pro-choice people know that 94% of abortions were for convenience…….thats just bab, and sick, disgusting. Abortions should only be used in few situations such as rape….which is only 1% of today’s reason for getting abortion.

    abortion is wrong, true, and i think it really is like a murder, you dont even give the child an opportunity to live, well, put it up for adoption then, its better than killing it, isnt it? and trust me, that child will get love, if its not by an adoptive parent then it would be by someone else, maybe that kid could have a life, an opportunity to grow up, and get marry, and oportunity to love someone, and opporunity to live a life, life is the most valuable of all the gifts in this planet. If you want to talk ’scientifically’ then yes, the baby you have is an entire different person, so what if it hasnt born yet? it has a separate dna and its not the same as the mother, that creates it as an entire different entity, and yes, it is alive, its feeding, right? if it wouldnt be alive then it wouldnt be able to grow, right? stop saying that the fetus isnt alive, because it is. and if abortion is necesary, it should “only” be necesary in cases of rape, not because you just got accidently pregnant. be brave, and give the child at least an opportunity to live.

    abortion is right
    In all seriousness… everysingle one of you, well almost, are speaking of un-researched facts. i know i am only a high school student but here is my point of view..
    1. there is rape. accidents. mothers who might die. and mothers and both the baby could die.
    2. its not a human after a certain amount of days. your not killing anyone. your just stopping them. do you remember when you were in the womb? didnt think so…
    -adoption, well with crazy catholics and christians trying to save the world, the adoption rate is way over crowded and would just make the kids life even worse becasue more than 95 percent of couples want to have their own kids than adopt.
    -its also true that abortion rate was pretty much the same even though it was not legal. i dont know about you but i myself would rather be aborted than grow up in a bad neighborhood full of povertey and violence. i wouldnt want to hear that i was left in an alley way becasue i was a crackbaby.
    —But most of all, dont tell anyone that its wrong and god doesnt like it because i base my research off of facts not a book that changes every other malenium.god didnt talk to you and you dont know what he thinks. o promise you.. you dont know his opinion on abortion.

    On March 15, 2010 at 7:52 am


    I agree with Alejandro because people need to support their ideas and opinions based on evidence that proves or justifies their response. Even though all opinions are necessarily true on both sides, unless there is more information put up and that is considered legitimate, people can’t be convinced of results that are always changing. I’m just saying that if you want to prove something then bring up some information that people will see and think about. “Cite/quote references or give links – RESEARCH”. Just saying. I want to hear more in-depth and effective knowledge rather than opinions that people would most likely agree with or feel the same towards.

    On March 20, 2010 at 11:42 am


    I am doing a debatable English paper over the positive side of abortion… I am a 16 year old girl and I believe that women should have the right to decide whether or not, they should have the baby they conceived or not. I have personally never been pregnant and if I was to become pregnant, I would not have an abortion, however if I were unable to provide proper care for my child, yes I would have the baby aborted. At least after you abort them they stay in your heart forever, just as they would if you were to have them and put them up for adoption. But this way you wouldn’t have to see them grow up or know they’re growing up without knowing their real mommy or daddy… Abortion is a good thing, yes to some people it may be cruel but in the end it is always good. If the child’s life would not be good or if the child would not prosper and get the love and attention it needs then… go have an abortion. I would rather see fetus’ that are not alive and breathing die than the poor babies who are killed by Shaken Baby Syndrome or even by horribly painful death, because the parents were not suited to care for a child…

    ABORTION IS PERFECTLY FINE(as long as its before 11-12 weeks) The baby developes feeling and sesitivity to light, heat and how cold it is, if the baby is passed 11-12 weeks, then it can feel all of the things happening to it.

    In my opinion i think that abortions should be illegal!! If you get pregnant and dony want to have the baby you can always put it for adoption insted of killing him or her. Its unbelievable how our society thinks abortions are good when you get raped. It isnt right because it aint the baby’s fualt you got raped. Make sure you think before you act. THINK!!!!! YOU ARE GOING TO REGRET KILLING SOMEONES LIFE..UNLESS YOU DONT HAVE FELLINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

    Abortion is wrong:
    1) A limitation of freedom is necessary in defense of those things which the constitution states: LIFE, liberty, and happiness. Obviously, you might say that this is a moment where personal and we might say “actualized consciousness” supersedes unconscious, that is the mother has a more of a right to happiness than the fetus to life. This brings us to the second point.
    2) A fetus is alive. Regardless, of the circumstances having an abortion is depravation of life. Look at the statistics of the organs when just a few weeks old. In korean, a person’s birthday is celebrated 9 months before the day he was born. The sperm and egg create something different than just a mesh of cells. In this strictly polemical argument, killing the fetus is like killing a hard drive before it is turned on. It’s still a hard drive. Just because something doesn’t work to full potential doesn’t mean it’s worthless.
    3) In the case of rape. I am sorry. It is still wrong. Adoption is the right thing.
    4)I was adopted, and unlike many of you, I have had a wonderful life. Life isn’t about where you are placed in it, but how you work with what you have. Many of you have said that adoption is not a viable option. Then have the government fix adoption agencies instead of regulating interstate gorilla transportation. If you believe abortion is wrong then make sure you do something to help those who think it is worse for the child.

    Yes, I will bash my own side. Use logic, not insults. Do something constructive. How hypocritical to think of all the “babies” in trash cans. THen you do think it is a baby? They are right the bible is another argument. They will not listen to that one right now. There is an argument of validity though. Now the arguments and biology.

    If you have been raped then the least yoy can do for the liitle guy is have him. He isnt just the rapist child but the mothers too. By aborting the mother is comiting murder. She should at least have the child and then put him for adoption. The little fetus at least diserves to be born and be give the chance for life, liberty, and persuit of happiness. By aborting the mother takes its life, she doesnt give it liberty because his life is in her decition when it shouldn’t he should be born, and it will never get the chance of persuit of happiness.

    wow this is stupid. less than 2% of abortions are due to rape and only 6% are due to health reasons. about 93% of abortions are due to social reasons. i think that if the baby hurts the mothers health or if the woman was raped, the woman should have to take it up in court on whether or not she can have an abortion. OTHER THAN THAT ABORTION SHOULD BE ILLEGAL!!!!!!!!

    Let me get this point into you pro-lifer’s head: Yes, the baby should have a choice. BUT. When a baby is aborted, they are not human. They are a freaking fetus. If you put it on a table (a fetus) would it be able to walk, talk, eat, breathe? No. The fetus does not know what anything is. It has no concept of what death is. It doesn’t know anything. It doesn’t even have a gender yet! (that’s why I’m calling the fetus “it.”) It CANT make choices. It needs someone to make them for it! I mean, could you ask the fetus if it wanted to die or not? No. You could. But it wouldnt respond. Hell, the fetus doesnt even have all its body parts yet! It is a living thing. Like bacteria. And ants. Do we care when we step on ants or kill other bugs? That’s killing things. And you call yourself pro-LIFE.

    in the case of rape, its your half of the baby too!

    rape is something you heal from, believe me because i HAVE been raped.

    i chose to keep the baby and when i gave birth to him, i really couldnt handle a baby at the time of my life so i gave him up for adoption.

    Even though i gave him up for adoption, when i saw his little eyes and innocent face i loved him. i dont care that he is the son of a rapist, that doesnt make HIM bad!

    wherever he is, i know hes happy to be alive!

    First and foremost, God is real and he said in the ten commandments that “Thou shall not Kill” So abortions are not wrong and i do not agree with you at all. Yes aborting a baby can have its strain on the mother and she could have some problems later but it still remains that she has the right to if she wants. She was granted those rights in the consitution so that would be a contradiction of individuals rights. In the case of aborting a baby because of rape, i agree that it should be a considered option because the mother suffered an tragic experience and she may not want to carry a child to full term. That would be a constant reminder of what has happen to her. Yes she could put the baby up for adoption but as already stated the adoption agency are over crowded and too who wants to have a child that is apart of them being out there. then that leads to guilt and even sucided because we all know that society bashes people for not carrying for their kids. I think it should be left as an option but on certain circumstances.

    now if it were rape thats a different story, but 99% of the time rape will not get you prego….
    and if were a life or death situation the women getting prego would have known she would die givning birth by her doctor…..

    On June 10, 2010 at 1:54 am


    Okay look, I can be either pro or against abortion depending on the situation. You can’t expect a rape victim to want to keep the baby, even if she does put it up for adoption. That girl will be traumatized and not want to have the baby at all. Also, what if the person was on drugs and then the baby is born with a mental illness, do you think thats fair for the child? The children who were aborted earlier will be born later, when the parents are in a more stable relationship and when their financial and social positions are more secure. Those children will have considerable advantage over the children who would have been born earlier. And this shows that permitting abortion has a double advantage over outlawing it in that not only does abortion reduce the number of children who will grow up to be problems for society, but that it increases the number of children who will be born to make positive contributions. You have no right to choose the lives of others when it has no impact on you. Everyone says “Mother knows best” so don’t you think that the mother would know if her baby will have a good life in this world?

    Frankly, these uber-Christians whining about how abortion is the same as murder seem have lived extremely sheltered lives. All they think when the topic of abortion comes up is “Oh noes it’s taking a cute baby’s precious life!”
    Do you insensitive morons ever consider the trauma that rape causes? Do you take into account the added trauma a pregnancy would bring? Pregnancy inevitably can make a woman feel vulnerable and disgusting, which can only serve to traumatize her even more after the rape. Furthermore, in those nine months, while you’re incubating your rapist’s offspring, every time you feel it kick, you’re reminded of that horrible experience all over again. If you’re so morally righteous and care so much, why would you wish that on any woman?!
    In addition, a fetus in it’s early stages, when a woman would be most likely to abort it, is nothing more than a few cells. Its brain, heart, and nervous system have not even begun to develop. It is not self-aware in any way, nor does it have any emotions or thoughts or realizations. It is a simple organism like any other. It vaguely resembles a squid. Compare it to a fully developed human being. Yes, the woman has another being dependant on her, but it is inside her body, connected to her body, conceived out of the chemicals of her body! That would give her more right than the fetus or anyone else to choose whether she wishes to give birth to the fetus or not. And all of you people whining about adoption, listen up. Our population is out of hand, and is growing to unsustainable levels. Regardless of how you feel about babies, the world does not need more of them. Get over it. You people are too preoccupied with your Bibles and what your greedy preacher tells you to consider anyone else’s well-being, and too smitten by how cutesy and precious and blah blah blah you think babies are. To a woman who has been raped, that cute little baby could be seen as a parasite.
    Also, you may say that abortion is murder. Vegans say killing a cow for meat is murder. Humans are still animals. We are not any kind of superior race. If you can eat a burger without whining about how immoral butchering cattle is, then shut up about being pro-life. Nobody cares.

    This whole debate bothers me, always has and always will. It’s one of those things where no one will ever agree, because everyone has different morals and beliefs.

    What if a twelve-year old girl is raped? She is just a child herself, and NO child should have to go through anything like that. That would destroy her life FOREVER.

    However, this would be a very very rare occurance, i understand.
    but it still happens, and should be considered.

    I think it should be circumstance-based abortions.

    I think abortions should be legal as well as many people in the world today, i strongly agree with the rape situation, a woman should have the right and the choice to keep or abort their unborn child. Its in their free will to do so, there is nothing holding a woman back from making this life alteering choice. All the christians out there need to keep their godly opinions to them selves, no one in this world is following the bible at all, andon that topic alot of the “christians” in the world arent even good people etiher, they commit just as much sins as anyone they say sins. Christians are the biggest hippocrates i’ve ever gotten the opportuniuty to meet.

    all of you religous people must understand that under some circumstances people have no choice. if a woman was to be raped, such as my mother, would you want to be reminded of it? you have no idea what it is like and you only say what you say just because you THINK that. if you were to be put in that situation you would most likely be ashamed of critisizing people for abortion. also, if a woman cannot afford, what are you supposed to do? just chuck it out on the street? no, abortion is a choice and woman should have the right under certain circumstances. a true reason and not for no reason at all.

    I think everyone that’s for abortion is wrong. I have one Question. Have anyone every saw an aborted baby? It’s pathetic for the murdering of these unborn children to be happening in America.The fetus looks like a human being, with fingers, toe, eyes, and a mouth. I have witnessed this sad process. If the fetus is old enough, you can hear it scream as the procedure is going on. I just can’t understand why would any human being put an inocent life throught that much torture. For these reason I am against abortion of inocent lifes, that didn’t ask to be on this earth in the first place. A mother can give away 9 months of her life for 80 years of another person’s life.

    God also said no adultery and fornication so one sin leads to another. If the fornicater would have never raped anyone, then it wouldnt lead to abortion.I could go both ways with an abortion to a certain extinct. Rape victims should have the option to abort an unplanned child. However, couples who have sex and abort an unplanned child shouldnt have the ooption of abortion.If you are sexually active you should know the consequences. Rape victims giving their children up for adoption is stupid. There are already enough poor children around the worl that need parents.What if this child grows up regreting the fact that their real parents gave them up for adoption? Then they will start having sex and getting pregnant and giving their children up for adoption. This is just raising the rate of poverty and teenage pregnancies.

    On November 16, 2010 at 11:45 pm


    Before I say this. I’m just going to make it clear that I’m Catholic. I think that if you don’t like abortion, THEN DON’T HAVE ONE, plain and simple. Don’t go and try to force your beliefs on others because that really makes you look like an a**hole, a douchebag and/or a person who has no life. What others do with their bodies is no one else’s business but their own. Let’s say a woman get raped, if you take away that woman’s control over her own body, then you’re no better than her rapist. Plus, if you didn’t know, abortion lowers crime rate and if you don’t believe me, Google it. That may sound kind of harsh but it is what it is. And for those who say just give the baby up for adoption, are you going to donate money to a homeless or unadopted child or better yet adopt one or many of the millions of millions of children already crammed in adoption agencies, probably not, so think about that before you open your mouth. And for those who say, would you have wanted someone to abort you, let me just say that I’d rather be aborted than born unwanted and left in an adoption agency where my chances of being adopted are slim or left to die in an alley somewhere or get abused because my parent(s) didn’t want me or couldn’t afford to take care of me. And the deaths of women from abortion mostly occurred when abortions were illegal and women were trying to abort the unwanted fetus in any way they could. All I’m saying is that if you don’t like abortion, then don’t have an abortion, no one is forcing you. But it’s wrong to try and make it so that people who want abortions can’t afford to safely get one. It’s none of your business because it’s not your body. And no matter what, whether abortions stay legal or are made illegal, they will always occur, just as they have for thousands of years. However, if they stay legal, a lot less women will die.

  176. Ann

    On November 17, 2010 at 12:16 am


    Also, for the people that say it’s wrong because the Bible says so, the Bible says that you can sell your daughter into slavery, a person that works on Sunday should be put to death, children who refuse to obey their parents should be executed, etc. God did not write the Bible. And how do you know what He wants or doesn’t want? Did you sit down and have a personal conversation with Him and He said, “Thou shall not abort.” I’m not trying to be funny or mocking, I’m just making a point that no person really knows what God wants. Yes, the Bible says, “Thou shall not kill.” However, it doesn’t say what. Humans kill animals everyday, just saying. And a fetus is not officially considered a person until it’s born and to me it’s not considered a person until it has arms and legs which is about one and a half to two moths after conception in which it will most likely have already been aborted.

    Abortion should only be available to those who have lost their child. ex) child has died in the womb
    – cause ex) baby was choked to death by umbilical cord

    By then the mother needs to take out the corpse to prevent health problems.

    the women should have the right to do whatever they think is convenient for them…. other people shouldnt be all up on their business of what they have to do, because whatever they did before will return back in the future and if they did something wrong they will have to suffer there consequences!!!!

    On December 20, 2010 at 10:21 pm


    first of all, for those who agree or disagree, none have the the right to dictate what should or should not be done or even voice ill feelings towards another brother or sister.

    you are to love no matter what. and care no matter what. despite decisions or circumstances or opinions, we are all human. we all make mistakes, make choices, make the best of what we have. no matter the situation, no matter the case, no matter who\’s involved, we should still find peace in each other and we shouldn\’t be so quick to point fingers.

    whether you are debating for or against abortion, we are missing the bigger picture here. everyone is quick to debate about why it is wrong or right, what god has or hasn\’t said, but the truth is, we are all children (whether your religious or not), we are all children of this world and we need to find peace. we especially should be able to find peace with each other. during such troubled times, like such a debate, we should be able to look to each other, not against one another.

    with whatever decisions made, we need to continue to be better. i dont believe whether you have or dont have one determines your worth. i dont believe that if you dont have an abortion you\’re better than if you those that do. it all matters with where your heart resides. if a person is to have a child and have an ill heart, it is still an ill situation. if another person, is to for their own PERSONAL reasons not have a child, yet grow to become a wise, spiritual, loving, caring, humanitarian, then that is their path in life. both situations are hard, both situations should not be judged. but instead, just cared for.

    i wish everyone can just take a step back, and let be the lives of others. start focusing on your own.

    I am a very strong Christian and a qualified Medical doctor. my view on the act of abortion is as follows;
    On the view of Christianity,abortion is so illegal and is prohibited. any extra-marital sex is not allowed.For those who do it, are commiting sin before God.
    For that reason therefore we should avoid extra-marital sex since it\’s the major cause of unprepared pregnancies.

    On the other hand,as amedical proffessional, I don\’t still encourage abortion since it also has several side effects to the life of the mother especially when it\’s delayed to be done.
    Mothers should utilise the several family planning methods put forward to avoid this risks.
    Abortion can only be done if the life of the mother is under great risk and with consent.

    I do conclude therefore that abortion is neither good nor bad depending on the situation. However the bad part of it is more.

    I can understand if a woman wants to get an abortion because they got raped. I don’t agree with it, but okay I will not argue the issue. If a woman decides to get an abortion, just because of social pressure, way not cool. If you can’t take care of the kid, too late for thinking of that, your pregnate because of your bad decision, so live with it and take some responsiblility. Is it the kids fault, NO, it is your *beep beep* fault. I have in fact known 3 teenage mothers and 2 of them were in a great foster family. It was their fault they they became pregnant and took responsibilty. Most abortions are done because of social pressure. One person here commented and said that abortions are cool. So all of the sudden murder was cool. I really am trying to understand both sides of the issue. All that I have seen so far would lead me to conclude that all you guys are saying against abortion is rediculous, you don’t even mention the fact that girls have abortions because of social pressure. You are being hypocrites. That is the plain and ugly truth. If you have some completely condradictory EVIDENCE then please let me know. I am only saying what i know, not what i believe is right or ethical. I only but before you facts.

    I believe in God, but I have also had to hear rape victim stories.
    It is painful enough in a traumatic scene like that.
    I believe abortion is okay, it is SICK in the head to think someone would make you go through that after being raped.
    (ESPECIALLY coming from a woman)
    Those are the kind of people who need to go through the same situation themself and then ask themselves what would they do?
    I won’t check my replies, but hear me out,
    any situation that way is rediculous.

    I hate how some of these comments are addressing rape as if it were a minor event in a woman\’s life, ie. \”get raped, get pregnant, adopt it out.\” As if it were THAT simple.

    The emotional problems a girl deals with after being raped are terrible enough, then, to make her carry a product and constant reminder of that horrible event for nine months, now that\’s torture.
    Yes, I\’m against late-term abortions, but if a woman is in her first trimester, I wouldn\’t even consider \”it\” a true human life. If the baby is old enough to survive outside the womb, then it should not be aborted. However, if the opposite is true, then it is the woman\’s decision.

    All anti-abortion laws are being pushed by individuals with some sort of religious agenda. What happens if a woman is not religious? Should she still adhere to the religious values of others? Anti-abortion laws walk a fine line concerning the issue of separation of church and state.

    And if a fetus were to have rights, what makes the fetus\’ so called \”rights\” more important than the woman\’s? Are we going to say that we hold the rights of a fetus to a higher regard than those of it\’s mother? Isn\’t that inequality?

    I have to be completely honest, im using this to aid me in a speech about abortion, I support you in your opinions. I do believe that the “pro-life” supporters are quite… religious. I on the other hand. am not. I believe that every point you made can be completely and wholly validated. and I thank you greatly for allowing me to gain a better understanding of the controversy. I also like how you juxtaposted and acknowledged the counter argument.

    PS. im 16, you rock.

    OKAY..noone should be bringing religion into to this…because it just doesnt go togetherr and RELIGION should stay out of stuff like this.. b.c not everyone believes in god…so that wont be a good arguement if you say “shou shalt not kill”….annddd..honestly i feel like sometimes….(alot of times) religion gets in the way of people ..THINKING REASONABLY!!!. and RATIONABLE! ..like if response is to alll of this…”god made everyone to live or w.e”…shut up god didnt create me……MY PARENTS DID-__-…annd yea sure…you can give them up for adoption …there are soo many statistics that show …alot of these children grow up with no love….in crazy foster homes ……ect…..so id rather prevent that:) and of course…like someguy who wrote up on here that he was adopted and he had a wonderful life…well….you were lucky:l

    p.s im also sixteen:) and i have an open mind:)))))))

    PRO-CHOICE!!!!!!

    A woman has the right to choose what she wants to do with her body. A FETUS IS NOT HUMAN, but a woman is. The woman’s rights trumps the “rights of the fetus”. ABORTION IS NOT MURDER!!!! Most abortions take place in the first and second trimester, when a fetus is completely dependent on the woman’s existence, and therefore should not be considered human. There are many reasons why women seek abortions. Rape, not financially stable, too young, or just not ready. Who are YOU to tell a woman that she has to carry an unwanted baby to full term???? Sure adoption is an option, and so is birth contol. But they’re just that. OPTIONS. And so is abortion!!! Stop worrying about the children who aren’t being born and be concerned about the hundreds of thousands of destitute and orphaned children already in existence.

    in, the end while abortion is a very very very very controversal topic, it should be legal, under fully defined circumstances,
    1. to me if the fetus/embryo is under 1 month it is basically just a clump of cells, and this is where the mother should decide as soon as possible if she wants to go through with pregnancy. if you decide to wait untill 3 months or whatever, it’s your fault for waiting that long deal with it and have the baby

    2. a “human” to me is something that has the ability of thought and intelligence-basically it has a working brain, (not including those who have become vegetable etc. because they used to fit the definition)-justifing the abortion date set above.

    3. i’m not a super religous person and please don’t hate on me for this… and i could be and probably am wrong, but those fetuses that are aborted get a free pass to heaven, and even though they didn’t expeiriance “life” which in a some of cases wouldv’e been living in a shitty house with your slut mom (a lot of moms are not like this i know) the child probably wouldv’e had no religous whatevers in there life and would not have gone to your heaven. in other cases where it’s just that the mother didn’t want to have a child, i have no call on that, but still a free pass to heaven would still be pretty nice.

    4. life threatening situations-im sure you allready know what im gonna talk about- more or less who’s more important the unborn child or the mother? thats your opinion

    5. you may hate it but heres something, if a female ends up impregnated a lot and has abortions a lot, either if she couldn’t take care of the child or didn’t want to, and that child had ended up living with their respective parent(s) theres a strong possibility of them growing up to become criminals-due to not having the same living condition as we all do-which increases death rates more than 1 abortion- this does not apply to all cases. and also it is estimated that in 20 or so years, with the world becoming as populated as it is, the world will have so many people that we’ll all be living like were in current day mexico- which is why im for the possibility of steralizing infants at birth

    6. if you consider a fetus gods child, living, human, etc. etc. etc. why don’t you consider the millions of sperm and egg cells that “die”, don’t they all have a right to life too? arn’t they human too? (or at least they have the potential to become hunman.

    7. adoption is a long and expensive process, and i’m sure that putting a child up for adoption is also tedious (don’t know for sure), if thats the case the mother won’t care enough (not in all cases) to put up the child for adoption, and then it goes to #5

    8. while you don’t like it even if you illegalize it, there will still be abortions, and they will be even more dangerous (they arn’t dangerous at all if you do them early now-matching with #1) and even more women will die, which will even out the less deaths of fetus’s- even though you may not like it, it’s better to make it legal under certain cercumstances than to illegalize it completely- the police won’t be able to stop all abortions no matter how hard they try.

    all in all, i dont like abortion very much but i do see it as a “necessity”
    also if you illegalize abortions you should legalize gay marriage etc. because homosexuals are more likely to adopt- and most children who are raised by a gay family end up just like the majority of everyone else. and for those of you who are against gays too (probably religous reasons like god hates gays) those people god hate don’t go to heaven and that’s there choice why should you care?

    on a final note-i may have got off topic a little, but i feel i got my point through. your free to follow your own opinion and express it (one thing america hasn’t screwed up) feel free to hate on me, call me a terrorist, murderer etc. just know that someday I hope abortion won’t even exist because pregnancy only happens when the “family” is willing to accept it ( excpet for case 4 ) and that you all go on to live out happy fullfilling lives- sincerely your friendly canadian fox

    I am adamantly pro choice, and I am also a devout Christian. How can this be? I’ll tell you. Not only does God tell us not to judge others or we well be judged the same by Him, but Jesus said no sin cannot be forgiven except for blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes, God uses difficult decisions we have made to bring us closer to Him. It is up to God to judge, not any of us, not any of you. Shame on anyone who does this. Cursing is a sin, getting angry is a sin, and the price for all sin is the same. Did you know hating someone is the same as murdering them? Read 1 John, it says it right there. So, as we can see, we all sin, and to God, all our sins are just as bad as the other. We have no right to call each other sinners or murderers, because all of you are just as bad a I am. God have mercy on everyone. By the way, do you not think God knows what you will do before you were even born? And still, He sent his son to die for us. We have no right to condem each other.

    Guys abortion is legal for a reason… If a women is raped you guys in the comment are all saying “Adoption is an option” when really it wasn’t her choice to get pregnant if raped and giving birth is one of the hardest things for a women to endure.. It wasnt their choice to get raped thats why its rape and everytime she looks at her baby she will remember the rapist cus it will be his kid just as much as hers. No reason for a women to go through all that, and in the first month of a women being pregnant the fetus isnt even human yet, meaning it has no mind, or ability to move. So not exactly murdering a human. Aborting a child 5 months into pregnacy yes that isnt right but a month or less then sure let the women have that choice.

    Why does everyone seem to think that they know everything there is to God and that the term God even refers to one entity? Research the origins of the word God as well as heaven and you will find the church is lying about what is in the bible. The bible even has advanced beings that come from the sky in vehicles which could modernly be referred to as extraterrestrials. The truth of the matter is we have been lied to about everything there is to do with the subject of what God is so that people can make untaxed money. This subject needs to be dealt with in an ethical way and I do feel that adoption is definitely a better route even in the situation of rape where as the mother could keep in contact with the child if adopted. There are ways around it but the truth is people will be people and if they really feel it is the only choice they can make they will find a way to do it. It comes down to being an individuals choice.

    IN RESPONSE TO \”TIKA\”

    \”I truly pity you. And everyone else who doesn’t believe in one God(or any god) is a lost cause? You are a sad individual, and you have the same mentality as a terrorist(everyone is wrong but me).\”

    So many things are wrong with this. Ha. Okay, first of all, I couldn\’t find who she was referring to but…
    1. You are a sad individual, and a very confused Christian if you believe that someone is a lost cause because they don\’t believe in God. Read John 3:17 instead of just John 3:16. John 3:16 says that God sent Jesus to die for you so you can be born again spiritually (which if you believe you should know that He meant everyone. This verse is usually one of the first you learn as a new Christian). Most people don\’t keep reading and ignore John 3:17, which is just as important if not more so. It says, \”For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.\” (NIV) Not to condemn. Did you get that? So… no, they are not a lost cause. To you who think this way, read Matthew 7:5. It says, \”You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother\’s eye.\” (ESU)

    2. \”You have the same mentality as a terrorist (everyone is wrong but me).\” ?????? Really? Okay, okay, okay. So, you have studied both the mentality of this person who made an ignorant comment about their own religion (note that it is ignorant because it does not follow what God\’s word actually says therefore is not biblical or \”ethically correct\” from a Christian\’s standpoint), and you have also studied the mentality of a terrorist? Which kind of terrorist? What definition of terrorist are you using? How many have you interviewed? Note that the definition of terrorist is not \”everyone but me is wrong\”. That is closer to the definition of a narcissist, not a terrorist. Terrorist means \”Someone who uses violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims\”. So… your comment was also ignorant.

    What have we learned?

    I think abortion is right and should remain legal. if a women gets raped they don’t want to remember what happened every time you look at your child at least i wouldn’t. another reason is if there is incest involved i am pretty sure you don’t want to remember that child if a father, brother or and other male family member did that to you. it even says in fact that abortions are ten times safer then giving birth so i guess i have made my point. Think about it.
