Nowadays,abortion is very prone especially teenagers who got early pregnancy.Do you think it is a sin to abort when you are not ready for parenting or not a sin because that the best for you?Do you think so?

a baby's heartbeat begins at about 18 days from what I have been told. In other words, by the time most women find out they are pregnant, the baby ALREADY has a heartbeat...Abortion is truly a sin. In MOST cases, abortion should not be an option. There are a lot of couples who would love to adopt a baby and give it a loving home. The only time abortion should be an option is when carrying/delivering the baby would prove dangerous or life-threatening to the woman that would be beyond the normal risks of pregnancy.

Hi..! yeah,, abortion is a mortal sin. Even its 2-3 months in your tummy ( its a blood yet) but it has life already. It sounds like you are killing a baby so its a mortal sin.

I am pro-life and think life begins for a baby at conception. I think that some teenagers can be rather careless in their relationships. No form of birth control is 100% effective so they might have been responsible. I admire teenage parents that do a good job of having a baby and looking after him or her well. I think the some teenagers are pushed into having an abortion by their parents. Some teenagers are not able to consider what is morally right at their age and they might seriously regret having their abortion years afterwards. Abortion is a mistake for some teenagers. I would never want to have an abortion because for me it would be wrong. I am not religious but if I was I might say abortion is a sin. Abortion is bad and I feel sorry for the innocent baby.

Thank you very much for responding my discussion regarding this matter that I am sure people would be cautious about. In abortion your life is in danger and it has side effects.Congratulations for being a pro-life and I know someday somehow you have a good choice when situations like this would be coming,right?

Yes indeed it was a sin. Human exist in this world have their own destiny. a destiny that we need to face. They say that "you cannot correct the wrong from another wrong" you need to make it right. If you have an unwanted pregnancy, and you can say that you're going to give a birth to unwanted baby it doesn't mean that the life of that baby you're carrying in your womb is unwanted. The challenge of your life giving birth with your baby is yours to face with pride. and the challege of living of being unwanted baby is childs to face. life maybe good with him/her or bad it is his/her destiny. Think that even you or those legitimate child are facing the same path of life. all we need to do is to stand to carry this life has to offer. life is too short you know! you can't live a hundred years are you? Top of it all, no matter who or what you are, your life is yours to face aswell as those unwanted babies. Let that human live his/her life and let life dealt with him/her at the right time. Nike said "Just do it" go on move your life because that's your life. no one can stop your life as it happens

well for me, it depends on the situation. for instance you are pregnant but your life would be in danger if you continue your pregnancy, you have no choice but to terminate it. it became a sin for me when you become pregnant and you don't want to continue it because of the fact that you are not ready. it's not a valid reason, if you're not ready to conceived a baby then don't give yourself to a guy just because you want an experience or whatever reasons you have. there are a lot of woman who wants to conceived a baby but are not fortunate enough to have at least one.

Right Aileen,it depends and it may be a case to case basis. When it is reasonable to abort the baby from the womb it is because your life would be in danger and advise by the doctor then perhaps it is not a sin.Well we cannot control the situations also teenagers just thinking of what they can do today and not thinking the circumstances happen like pregnancy.Thank you for the comment and happy mylotting.....
