Abortion has long been an issue in all parts of the globe. This greatly contradicts the laws of the church and the state. IT is morally wrong. But what if the mother is a victim of s3xual mol3station or if she is in danger if she gives birth? Would you consider the right of the child to live? or the right of the mother to choose?

I personally am a supporter of Pro-choice. In my opinion, it is the mother's ultimate right to choose what she wants to do with her body and her future. Of course I respect the opinions of others. The churches make their laws based upon their interpretations of the writings of men so I don't put much stock into these interpretations. The laws of the state are also based upon the fickleness of public opinion and so I also don't place much stock on these. Currently laws in my state allow abortion before a specified period. But whether the church or the state outlaws or allows abortion, history has shown that women will have abortions regardless. So while the law and church continue to argue about the issue of when does life actually occur, woman need the protection and care of professionals so that they can survive the decisions that women have been making throughout history.

Thanks for those kind words. But what do you think? You mentioned that according to laws and church it is morally wrong, but what is your opinion on this matter according to you?

Honestly sir if I am to choose I would really choose the mother - pro-choice. In a different perspective, if I am to place myself at the shoes of a husband, I'd choose my wife...I can adopt if we can't have babies but in the long run it's still the two of us...a husband and a wife.. It's easy to say that there are many fishes in the ocean and you can always have a replacement. But for me it is not, you may never fnd the love ever again... Better have a wife beside me that I truly love..(that is if I were a man) LOL

I am pro-choice. Every person should have a right to choose what they do with thier own body. Its an argument that never will go away however, I'd rather see a child aborted than untaken care of, mistreated, abused, neglected. I hate when people say if you don't want the child then you can put it up for adoption, with all the children up for adoption in the system in most countries, what makes you think that they all get the care they need, in many cases they are abused in system. Everyone has an opinion, everyone has a right to an opinion, Everyone has a right to voice thier opinion, But I think Pro-lifers need to realize that you can't push "pro-life" down peoples throat, pro-choice stay less pushy and doesn't condemn peoples choices, I mean come on if you are pro-life you have made a choice. So can't I make my own choice too? We have a state represenative in my state, (Georgia,USA) that has brought a bill up wanting to "invesigate" all miscarriages, To the point of talking the womans friends and family members, to prove that the woman didn't cause it, if it is unable to proven that she didn't cause it, it could be a felony charge against the woman. So miscarriage now has to have a reason, hmm, many miscarriages dont have a definitive reason, how many felons are we going to have in our state, This is the radical side of pro-lifers, and in the process, innocent hurting woman that have just miscarried are going to be violated and treated as criminals. By the way did you know a miscarriage is a natural abortion medically? I just feel my choice is my choice. No one has a right to tell me what to do with my body, I'd rather be more proactive against child abuse/neglect than fight over abortions. Take care of the babies that are here and now.
