What do you all think of abortion? Do you think it is right or wrong? What are the expections to this? I dont agree with it at all, unless under 1 circumstance...the lady was raped and got pregnant. What do you all think?

I am a bit wary of answering that question cos I know some people get very angry with the answer but here goes! While I think abortion should be used as a form of contraception but I also feel it is a womans right to choose - although not over and over again!

a form of contraception? I don't think so. As all of us know,it will harm health.And maybe worse,to make a woman unable to bear a child. what do you think?

"As all of us know,it will harm health.And maybe worse,to make a woman unable to bear a child. what do you think?" You are mistaken. A woman has a greater risk of injury from having a child than she does from a legal termination. Of course the risks of childbearing are relatively low, but legal abortions have an even lower risk factor. There is no link between secondary infertility and terminations.

I hadn't even realised I made a typo on that! lol I think what I meant at the time was that while it should never be used as a form of contraception it is a womans right to choose, more harm can happen to a woman both physically and mentally if they are forced to continue with a pregnancy that they cannot come to terms with! xxxx

I believe in abortion...if it's going to ruin your life or if you aren't ready. And if you were raped, you would not want that baby in your life. Abortion isn't wrong if you consider it.

for me abortion it is wrong because it's same that we kill our own son, it's a crime, if the lady was rape and got pregnant it's still not right to do abortion..

I used to think that a lady could do whatever she wanted with her body. However, since I had children, my opinion has changed dramatically! I do NOT believe in abortion...I believe it is murder from day 1 of conception. However, like you...I think that in the case of a rape, a woman might want a chance to disucss abortion. Also, another instance is if the mom's life is in danger. I think that their should be special circumstances with this scenario, too.

So having your own children made you change your mind from believing that everywoman had her own choice into thinking that suddenly no woman should be allowed to choose for herself? What brought on this change of mind? Do you simply assume that since you've had kids that magically all the women in the world will suddenly want and adore every pregnancy they happen upon? Not everyone wants kids, you know. Not every woman wants to be pregnant.

It's interesting how people can see the same thing & yet form different opinions on it. Having children confirmed & strengthen my pro-choice beliefs. As much as I love my children, as much as I enjoyed being pregnant; it's too big & too much of a commitment imo for anyone to enter into other than with unconditional love,acceptance & willingness.

I totally do not agree with u that abortion is right in only one circumstance as there are 2 circumstances FIRST CIRCUMSTANCE: when a girl gets raped.. it is not her fault. It is fault of that guy who fulfils his lust in just harming an innocent girl. SECOND CIRCUMSTANCE: Sometimes it happens that bf and gf get so close that they do such things and girls get pregnant. Then either boy marries or not. If boy marries the girl thenm Ok.. what if the boy doesn't marry ... not fault of girl again... So i hope u agree that there are two possibilites when abortion is right.

At this point in my life I don't think that there is a good time to have an abortion. For biblical reasons of course. God knew those babies before they got to earth.

Personally I would be against abortion with only one exception rape. But in the end everyone has a right to choose.
