Last night I was takin an abortion survey to get 44SB added to my account. When I started the survey I didn't know what it would be about. When the question started to come up with what I thought about abortion and if I felt the government has a right to say how a women should be treated and such. I personally do not believe in abortions but I do not stop the right of a women choicing for herself. Yes I'm prolife but also prochoice. I believe it's a hard choice to make and that a women should be supported and not judge also recieved health care that deals with her abortion amd emotional health during that time. That doctors and nurses shouldn't judge a women for her choices of life. I know life doesn't go as planned and even when your plan and try your hardest to end up pregnant it can happen. We need to help each other in the best we can by showing love and support even when we do agree. I might have different point of view but I don't wish any women to feel bad for her choices she choices. As long as it's leagal and a womens rights to terminate are not taken away meaning forced to continue when she is still earlier enough to to terminate that pregnancy safely.

Abortion still takes a life. The baby didn't choose to be created and he/she has a right to live.

I agree but you can't force a women to stay pregnant and had a baby. The court Es don't see an unborn child as living till they take their first breath of air.

@ShyBear88 I guess that's were we differ in our beliefs. A baby at 5 months of the pregnancy (and sometimes earlier) can live. Abortions are allowed after that time, so abortion kills living, human babies. I feel sorry for women who become pregnant because of rape or incest, although sometimes it's just because of an "inconvenience" that the pregnancy is terminated. Trouble is, that baby didn't want or deserve to be terminated, no matter how the life was created. There are many, many couples who spend thousands of dollars trying to adopt a baby. This is a very viable option to abortion.

@1creekgirl babies under 21 weeks will not live long outside of the womb. I haven preemies and have seen lots of families that watch theirs babies suffer to fight to live when they just can't they are not strife enough didn't make it long enough in the womb. They might have a will by the courts will not see it as that. I do see life is life from the second of conception but you can't force someone do something you want because of what you believe

My one thought that I would like to share is this... when you WANT a child, you start thinking it is a child the MOMENT you find out you are pregnant. you watch the progress of your body, your baby, with joy and happiness. And if you lose that child at 4 months or 6 months pregnant, you are very, very heartbroken about the loss of child. Yet... if you do NOT want a child, you don't see it the same way. Your perception is different. I'm not saying anything about choice or not choice, but I am saying that the baby IS a baby once you conceive... You see that little heertbeating on the ultrasound screen, the little thumb sucking when they are itty bitty in your stomach.... you love that child, that life.... I know it is hard for many to conceptualize the idea of going through the pregnancy then giving the baby up for adoption.... but so many never even consider that. There are so many people who are waiting YEARS to adopt.... they would love to have that chance with someone's unborn child. So choice or no choice, regardless, that's a baby in there....

Nice wording. I can see it at that. For me I knew that my baby was my baby from before the stick turned pink that no matter what pregnant or not I wanted that baby.

Another thought....why does society condemn a parent for killing her baby soon after it's born, but that same mom could have easily and legally killed her baby right before it was born?

Because in the US a lot of people and the court say a baby isn't alive till its born and takes a deep breath so there for it cans not decided if it wants to love or not. I don't like that but you can't tell someone they have to be pregnant. A women body will naturally end a pregnancy or make you go to labor if it feels the mom is at threat of living. The women that kill there babies some are suffering from depression but others are not. I don't think it's right either way. Like I said above to me a believe life being ba at conception.

I am pro choice. I do believe that every woman should have a right to choose and do what they feel is best. I'm not saying I'm not pro life, but I am saying I am pro choice as well.

I believe in choice. The reason being women who wish to terminate will do so whether or not it's legal or safe. Girls become desperate, especially the young ones who know they have parents that will kick them out on the street. Back alley abortions are deadly for the mother and the fetus. So keep it legal an dkeep it safe.

I agree with both of you. A child did not ask to be created but still deserves the right to live. On the other hand the woman who has the burden of bearing the child also deserves the right to choose if she wants this child, if she feels she can raise and provide for the child etc. The only advice that I can think of is first and foremost the use of contraceptives to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. Personally I had a tubal ligation at the age of 24 because by then I knew I never really wanted to be a mother.

Yes I agree with protection but like I said there are a 1% of women that use protection that will still end up pregnant what they choice after that is up to them. Protectiion isn't just in. Womens hand but a mans as well, also not al for,s of protections will protect a 100% even those such as sterilization their is still a very small window a women can still get pregnant. Natural reversals do happen in rare cases. Nature does find a way some times to make things happen. As a women that in the 1% I don't judge. I've been pregnant three times gotte pregnant while using protection correctly. ,aye. Or so much baby 3 but difiinally the first two. Even though unwanted pregnancies happen each time I still love my three living babies ans my one angle baby. I wouldn't change how things happened to use. It was meant to happened it happened. If so,some I know asked me what do to I say try to give that baby a life with someone who can. There are plenty of people in the world that want babies give it try you might find it brings both you and that person a lot of happiness. Yes I do have a friend in Korea that had an adbortio last year she has two boys already and I told to her for several days before she ,add the choice to have an abortion to terminate her pregnancy even though I was against it she had every right to choice the path she wanted. I'm note sure if she is happy or sad about this but I'm always willing to leaned her a comforting ear.

I live in Jamaica. Most of our prisons are full of boys who came from no parent families. They survive by any means necessary. If they police don't kill them they end up in prison. Having a child is not the same as a bowel movement. if a person is not willing nor capable of taking care of a child from birth until 18 what do you expect to happen?

@tallawah it's called adoption but not all places have a good government to help or agencies to help with that.

@ShyBear88 Women who have money go to their doctor. The abortion is performed privately. No one knows. It is the poor who have to go to the Clinic. This is the main injustice that has to be seen. In my country abortion is not legal. However, wealthy women get abortions. It is not a problem. They pay for it. The poor, whether 12 years old and raped or 45 years old and sick, aare forced to have a child they can't look after.

@tallawah he's it doesn't matter the age but if your under 18 hot parents need to give the doctors portion or a clinic but I think it was lowered to 16 with Vincent depending on the state. It's not illegal to do it in the US poor or not all clinics do it but you have to do it under a certain week because then you'll be to far a long. If your rapped they give plan B here with in hours of the report.

Like you, I am pro-life but also pro-choice. Until we are standing in their shoes we have no idea what their circumstances are or what they are going through.

That's true and I feel compassion for women who get pregnant and don't feel they can care for a child. But once that baby is conceived, it is a living person who has a right to live.

Most of us lives in a country where there is freedom from many areas of life, which includes the freedom to choose. In my own personal conviction, I am not in favor of abortion in a general circumstance. However, I believe there are events which may warrant the practice of abortion to be the best choice in a particular time and place. Moreover, it is my personal conviction that it's not about whether it is legal or illegal, it's about what God says that matter most. What thinkest thou?

A woman should have a choice with regard to abortion. Whether she is capable of withstanding the pain both physical and mental is known best to the woman only.

I am pro choice too...it is not so simple to bring up a child...the expenses are increasing everyday....even education has become one of the biggest expenses ...what if someone had a baby but could afford to give it a good life...the child would suffer. We have this problem in India...people give birth to children taking them to be a Gift from God...but they can not afford to support the child...so the child gets no education...he just lives a life working and hoping for a better life...If people would see how much a child suffers in the pressures of life...they might want to think twice before condemning a child to that life.

Yes, as a mom of three little ones being broke six me the start it is rough having kids and not a lot of money but if you want them and are poor you do the best you can. Although here in the US school is free for the first 13 years then once you get to college you ah w to pay some countries schooling period is for free. As well as universal health care. In the us we do have medicaine that covers women and children I've had that with my first two. Ur our own insurances with our third. Like I said where I live school is for free, medical care spending on your position can be covered through the government we have many government programes that help. Our daughter did her first year of preschool last year for free through the country we live in but our son didn't get I tot his year or last year.

Exactly. Why drop someone into the world to suffer? What is the 'gift' of starving? Of living on the street?

I am a prolife too. I may disagree for abortion but I am saddened of those teenagers who are not yet ready to support her child once it is born. I am in between to side with the abortion or go for the process of carrying the infant until he is born. I know that it is God who could take away lives and He is the One who gives life. I am indeed undecided.

I absolutly agree with what you say in your post. I aam pro choice even if I am pro life. And on top of that, I feel that no man has any right to rule on that for any reason. It is not their problem.

This is really ironic as I just realized yesterday or the day before that I am both pro-life and pro-choice. Women want equality. It took years for women to be allowed to vote. So for that reason I am pro-choice. I still can't shake that I don't believe anyone has a right to play God, especially at the expense of a voiceless life. This is the first time I've heard of someone being both pro-life and pro-choice, almost at the same time that I came to that conclusion myself. Huh.
