It completely depends on the individual person and her individual situation. Every woman is different and every pregnancy is different. I don't think either option is inherently better or worse than the other, they simply solve different problems. I personally would get an abortion.

I think adoption is better than abortion. Instead of killing the baby, you can just give him to a nice family that would give the child the live that you can't give him yourself.. A person's misfortune can be another person's joy (the baby)

How you can compare abortion and adoption? abortion is killing the live. And adoption is is to bring one from orphanage and giving him/her your affection as your child. Abortion is criticized by many and still we are doing it. To prevent unexpected pregnancy abortion is last solution. Some times to save the life of a prospecting mother abortion is essential. But adoption is completely different. Normally we adopt child when the couple has no scope give birth of a child. There must have exceptions but it is common. So, sorry, I could not choose which one is best. I have a child and I am not in a mood to adopt another one and in my age of 39 I am not agree to have a child again and so to prevent pregnancy we are very cautious.

what if the girl is rapped for example? i agree with you that abortion isn';t good and it's also dangerous for the woman's health. but it's every woman's option what she does with her body. in extreme cases I agree with abortion. it's also true that there are couples who aren't able to have children and they would be really happy with they go the chance to adopt one but I repeat...it's every woman's decision

I was offered an abortion at 36 weeks pregnancy and I said no way. I let my disabled son be born and now he is a delightful little boy with a bright smile. I wouldn't ever chose to have an abortion because it would be killing an innocent baby. I believe in adoption because the baby gets to live and a couple get a baby they will adore. Many ladies that have an abortion suffer terrible depression even years after it has happened. I think abortion is wrong unless the woman's life is in danger. I feel sorry for the ladies that have conceived in attack and think it is their choice what they do. I believe that it is worth letting a disabled baby be born and then give him or her loving care.

It depends on the person's situation. If the baby is diagnosed with deformities or physical disabilities I would consider it because it is not fair for that baby to come to this world and live that kind of life. If the person is rape and fell pregnant, I would definitely consider abortion, I will not hesitate. There are many reasons why a person would choose to either have or not have the baby. This is not an easy decision and you should definitely talk to someone you trust.
