I would never have an abortion, but I feel it is important for others to have a right to one. Many women are raped every year, and a lot of them are not in a situation that would allow for good prenatal nutrition or a nurturing environment before or after the pregnancy.

I am against abortion for I am pro life.Abortion has been the source of considerable debate, controversy, and activism. An individual's position on the complex ethical, moral, philosophical, biological, and legal issues is often related to his or her value system. Opinions of abortion may be best described as being a combination of beliefs on its morality, and beliefs on the responsibility, ethical scope, and proper extent of governmental authorities in public policy. Religious ethics also has an influence upon both personal opinion and the greater debate over abortion. Arguments presented in favor of or against abortion focus on either the moral permissibility of an induced abortion, or justification of laws permitting or restricting abortion. Arguments on morality and legality tend to collide and combine, complicating the issue at hand.

No, it is not allowed here in my country and our law. It is a crime of killing a person or a life of innocent human being. Abortion is an absolutely wrong and it is a crime of murder. And absolutely I am not favor for this. And I think the fetus have life and like us she/he have a right to see this wonderful world.

I am against abortion but a woman should be allowed to make the decision for herself weather she wants her baby or not. I don't think anyone should tell her what to do about that matter because it is her body and she has ever right to decide what to do with it.
