Do you think abortion is right or wrong?

I have to say that I think abortion is wrong because we are God's creatures. God would not put us on this earth, even in a tummy, if it was not meant to be. I can understand when it comes to horrible genetic diseases because my family had to deal with this, but I still do not agree with it. How do you feel?

It is really wrong.Killing one's life is wrong what more is to kill an innocent child by abortion. This kind of act is really wrong and should condemn or eliminate. Life is beautiful and God's gift that we should cherish and take care of.,

Hello friend, You are right. I also agree with you about the matter. It is also bad for health and next baby. So I think it is bad. Have a nice day.

in my own POV I think it becomes bad if its for selfish purposes. However, if it is good for the fetus and for you, it becomes right all along. For instance, if you do not have the qualities of properly raising a child then perhaps its one option.

Well, what do you mean by right and wrong? I think it's wrong for your body and psychologically. It does cause a lot of damage but there are situations I think that, that choice is necessary. I don't think any woman enjoys getting it done from all the pain, discomfort, guilt they have to suffer through but some people are in that much of a life situation to have to. I don't think any other person has the right to make your life decision by making it illegal but I do not agree with some people who are careless and mistakenly put themselves in that situation when it was preventable.

I don't agree with abortion except for maybe in the case of rape or if the mother or child will be in some form of danger. Also I think maybe if it is known the child could have some serious illness once he/she is born maybe then as well but it would have to be something very serious where life wouldn't be enjoyable. I've heard though those cases are pretty rare and most of the time women get abortions because they don't want the child for whatever reason it may be which I think the most common may be because they can't afford a child. The way I see it is people should know the consequences of their actions and if you don't want to deal with what happens after, don't do it in the first place. I have have a friend who was considering an abortion but decided not to and now that she has her baby in her arms, she is so happy she made the decision to keep him. She says the child has change her life, but for the better.

i feel that it is neither right or wrong,because in different situations(such as the situation i was in: raped and impregnated by my biological father) in situations such as that i think that it is best for the mother to do what she feels is best whether that includes abortion or not.i myself had an abortion. and what really defines "right" or "wrong"? who are we to judge people? we obviously dont know everything about a person or their circumstances.

Abortion is wrong when we go for it because we do not want to lose our freedom or when we are efficient enough to take responsibility of a child but do not want to take because of our selfish desires. But sometimes, a woman has to go for abortion for her safety or when some pregnancy complications arise then at that time, abortion is not totally wrong. It all depends on the situation and circumstances.

The child doesn't have to suffer the consequences of being created by nature. It all depends upon us on how we deal with such situations. Children are a gift from God and they have the right to life regardless of whatever situation the child may have during his/her life time. It is the major responsibility of the parents to give this child a life and not to kill it just because of unacceptable reasons. How can one dare to kill such an innocent creature? :'(

100% wrong. Taking a life of an innocent unborn child is ALWAYS WRONG. Younger people nowadays tend to rely on that to avoid responsibility or getting criticized by the people around them. It's sad that they are the ones who always carry the burden of their parent's mistakes. I saw a lot of aborted child pics on fb. Some of them are found in the canal, garbage or in an open lot kept inside a plastic bag. How could they do this to a child? There are so many people out there dying to have a child yet they weren't given a chance.

I think that pregnancy is an exciting journey and at the end an innocent little baby is born. I think that a soldier can die in a war but at least he had a chance of life. An aborted baby is then one of the missing people of the world not even being allowed to live. I believe adoption gives the baby a loving home and a second chance of live. I think abortion is sick and painful for the fetus. I have seen a video called The Scream and it is the abortion of a 12 week old fetus. I know many ladies that have an abortion get severely depressed later in their life. The clock can't be turned back and the lady can live to regret what she has done. To get killed ones own baby sounds sick to me. Abortion is right if the mother's life is in danger and I feel sorry for any lady that conceives in an attack. Around 98% of abortions are for social or economic reasons. Those are the ones I would like to stop happening and only allow under special circumstances.

It is absolutely wrong to do abortion well in fact if ever someone is conceiving she is considering it as a great gift from God above and if ever one will be luck having one she must be treating it with rightful respect and dignity because it is a human being that deserves such due identity and right to be born on earth.How many ladies out there who does wish to conceive or adapt a child to have at least someone right it is very unfair for those merciless individual who are deliberately killing their own child what a heinous crime.I defy those people who are doing it to have that sense of responsibility and the courage to face it no matter what circumstances that goes along in doing such.

This is one of those questions in which the two sides will never find common ground. For those of us who have no belief in God, and who take life as begining at birth, the only question is a humanist ethical one. So, while I will personally condemn a woman who uses abortion as a form of contraception, or because it is the wrong gender for her family's "needs", I have no ethical problem with, say, someone who gets pregnant accidentally or through ignorance, and who has no realistic way of coping with a baby having an abortion. That said, I also believe that my personal ethics aside, it is nobody's business but the woman's. Lash

i agree that abortions are wrong because in not fair to decide someone else fate and also it lower the chance to give birth to other children

From the Bible s viewpoint abortion and wrong so I live according to what the bible says about it. It has sound reasons why we should hate abortion coz it it like killing the life of an unborn child. No one was given the right to end the life of any human so to commit abortion is a big sin. The child has nothing to do with whatever situation we are in.

For me it is always wrong unless you are married and having some medical problems endangering life of the mother.It is heinous I feel.It is cold blooded murder.If you do not want a child or do not want to conceive and just want to be an animal enjoying the biological drives than one should take precautions so conception do not follow not aborting it every time it happens.This is a black spot on the power of becoming a mother god has gifted to females But only humans are doing this no animal do this when they conceive what ever be the reasons.

Abortion is definitely wrong. It is murder. Some people think that a fetus when very small is not a human yet. But, at the moment of conception life has already been created.

I myself wouldn't do it, but I'm pro-choice... and there are some instances, when I totally understand it. For example, when a girl is raped. I just don't think it would be good if the girl is forced to bear that baby, and then she could go insane because of trauma she got. Or when the doctors can only save either the baby or the mother... oh and when an examination shows before the childnirth that the child has such a defomation or illness which would make his/her life a living hell after birth.
