It happens all the time and i dont understand why so many people think its bad? It has been happening since the beginning of time and now that we have the technology to do it safely people want to get rid of it. Sure its not good but if someone isnt ready to have a baby then they shouldnt that kids life would be horrible anyways. I think if its possible it should be allowed if you can live with yourself after words.

actually the "it" that you want to get rid off is a creation which we call "LIFE"... you're being selfish of denying "IT" to exist, and yet enjoy pleasure of expressing your emotions when you were creating "IT"... so, if one is not ready to have a baby, then one should be responsible enough to do the right thing.. because doing the wrong things for selfish reasons undeniably affects one moral values in terms of LIFE itself and to the one who created LIFE...

i simply called "IT" an "IT" because "IT" could be a girl or a boy

either which way, boy or girl or the IT, is still a form of life. LIfe is a sacred gift and hopefully you should realize creation is not a choice, but a gift..

Why is it so bad? You are killing an innocent life. The moment you start to conceive, it is already a life. Life doesn't begins when you were born, it begins when you were conceive in the womb of your mother. Isn't it that simple? Abortionist and the mother herself is a killer, that's my opinion. They are not far from killers. We must learn to value life. If you dont want to have a baby, if you are not ready for a responsibility then don't do this thing,be sure you are in the safe side. That's part of being a good person. Be ready for consequences of what you are doing, and when it happened do not deprive them to live.

You are very right but their are always those dumb people who arnt willing to face the consequences and the baby should not have to have a bad life where they have crappy parents who dont or cant care for them.

Hi James, I agree. To each his own. It's legal here in the States but many would like to change that and make it illegal. Not really sure why because it isn't going to stop abortions from happening that's for sure. The way to cut back on abortion is through guidance and education. As it is there are less and less abortions being done and I have to believe that is because of better birth control as well as awareness and people are being more careful about protection. I don't think we should judge others for their choices in life whether we agree with them or not.

Abortion is killing something living...and killing as we all know is never good. Before you go to that "if someone isn't ready to have a baby then they shouldn't have that kids life would be horrible anyways" -- I think people should think first before actually doing it that if they don't want a kid then don't do it..or do it safe.

Hi Hatley, Is he really breaking the rules? I think Purple's discussion was quite a bit different than this one. His was more about God's Will etc. While it was about abortion, to me it was a different take on it than James. I could be wrong on that...this one just seemed completely different to me.

I think that abortion is legal in most countries. For many people this is something normal but others still raise a debate about this. I found an article on this topic, it covers most of the things: http://www.bbc.co.uk/ethics/abortion/child/alive_1.shtml The debate about "when is the foetus alive" still goes on. Anyway, there are many cases when an abortion is inevitable.

Indeed it's bad, and it's an immortal sin against God, for it's God creation and we don't have any right to kill it. and if you're able to read God's 10 commandments in Exodus 20:13 , there it says that "Thou shall not kill" and abortion is a very clear view of killing an innocent life.

because they are killing life/babies inside them and you don't really know what their future lies ahead of them.

Abortion is such a bad activities in case of human concept. we forget that we are being human and we do the act very easily like an inhuman. a child can't get to birth for the following act. and it is also affect our health. they are nothing but selfish who performed like that.

There is no black and white answer.There are so many things to take in consideration, and even after one is thinking well through all the options, still no one knows if the decision is the right decision. Just to understand , I would never have one. But this is my decision and my life, and I take full responsability. I am a grown up, mature lady, with a modest income, but enough to welcome another person in our life. If you take a teenager , for example, all her life will change, Not saying for worse or for the better, because it's not my place to decide.I would just advocate for better protection and for better teaching what a baby means.

Hello James77purser. In my case, abortion is bad and cruel, eliminating life. Abortions grab the opportunity for someone to live, to come to this world. Every life has the right to come into this world in any circumtances. Besides, although now we can do abortions safely, sooner ar later there always will be a bad effects for the mommy. I think abortion is only for women who has problem with their health or women that will be in danger if they are having baby. :)

a few years ago i saw a video about how an actual abortion is being done it entitled " the silent scream". it was very clearly shown on that video that the baby or fetus inside the womb was trying to protect itself from the sharp instrument that was trying to end his/her life and the mouth of the fetus was vividly open like screaming for help. i really cannot forget that video and i humbly suggest that you and everyone else who are sexually active should watch that video.
