Abortion illegal and birth control

United States
May 7, 2008 1:36pm CST
Today I read an old poster and surprised. why so many people exciting about abortion illegal? Most of the time, abortion happend to these who failed to birth control, so it is a pert of birth control. if it is illegal, we shouldn't have birth control here either. maybe we will have morn than 30 children in your life, can you enjoy? if is true, the population in USA will be 2 billion after 20 years. then we havn't enough food to eat. most of us couldn't find job and the high density of population will destroy enviroment too. In china,when PRC established in 1949, we just had 400 million population, it was reached 1 billion just after 30 years in 1979 when the government started the policy 'one couple one child'. now is 1.3 billion. it is terrible, in 1960's, so many people died by starvation, even now so many poeple want survive and the environment were destroyed. we still have policy like one family just can have near half acre of yard even if you are rich and have enough money buying a big house. if 2 billion of population in USA, all these things will happen too. So what's your opinion? do you want abortion to be illegal or not? who want say no birth control in this country?

I do not think that birth control and abortion is the same thing. Birth control prevents you getting pregnant, whereas abortion stops you being pregnant once it is too late. I think both should be legal.

Wtf? I have never seen anyone argue again someone that has just said the same point as they are saying. I said that birth control and abortion should both me legal yet you are trying to tell me that I am saying that I think it should be illegal. I really don't get it.

Abortion is NOT a "part" of birth control. It IS a part of population control. Population control is what you described in China, and it is not a good thing. Yes there are many people in the world, yes there are food shortages, bad environments, etc...but that doesn't give ANY government the right to decide how many children a couple can have. I believe birth control should remain legal, it helps a couple become steady and well adjusted before bringing another life into this world. It also helps to space out their children so they don't have one right after another, and they can get through the terrible two's without having an infant in tow. Birth control stops a pregnancy from becoming. It prevents sperm from fertilizing an egg, therefore no life has yet been created. Abortion KILS an innocent life after it has already been created. Anyone committing an abortion without medical necessity should suffer the same consequences as anyone else who steal the life of another human being. Abortion should be illegal and consider Murder in the first, since it does take intent to commit. The woman choosing to have the procedure done should be charged with conspiracy to commit, and the doctor should be charged with murder 1. Now, before any of you pro-choice people get your panties in a bunch, let me say one thing. I understand why you believe a woman has the right to do with her body as she pleases. This makes perfect sense. But once that child has begun to form in her womb, it has a heart beat and a sole, it is no longer her body that she is choosing to "do with". It is the body of an unborn child that she is knowingly choosing to eliminate. How do you feel about the mothers that drown their babies after birth due to postpartum depression? Or the fathers who kill there children and there mother because it was too hard to handle? These people deserve to be locked up don't they?

Firstly, Thank you for response! Actually, in china, There are 800 million farmer, these couple can have 2 kids, but in city, means nearly 350 million, these couple just can have one, and near 150 million citizen they have the right to choose how many kids they want, because they are diffrent race from majority Han race. If you are in China, you will know you must do that, at least most of people support this policy. About the abortion, it is a big question, some cases, you must choose to do that. one of my friends have abortion because she just have a c-section 6 months ago and her health condition is very bad.In this condition if abortion is illegal, she must keep this small like pea life, that means this mother will lose her life! What's the chioce you will make in this condition?

Boy, you have given us a lot to think about here! As for me, I would never have an abortion and would love to see it become illegal except in certain extreme cases. I am in favor of safe and effective birth control and feel it is a good way to control the population. Just my opinion!

Point understood, but when you discuss birth control there is another story about it. My daughter is now diagnosed with having endometriosis and has to take Harmone therapy. In other words it's the same thing as birth control. So if that is going to be taken away she will suffer and possibly have surguries and also never be able to have any children of her own. Oh and another thing "she was a birth control baby!"
