is it okay to abort a baby when you know that the future of the baby will not be okay since the parents are both young? I know that killing someone is against the commandments of God, but i've been observing in the streets and i see a LOT of young girls holding children while asking for donations... i feel sorry for the child and the girl... What if aborting the child will just save the kid and the mother? is it okay? i'm not saying to kill the kid when it is already born, all i'm saying is not to proceed with the pregnancy, when you will know that you are pregnant and you are not ready, is it okay to abort the kid? after all you are not ready and you already know that the child will not have a happy and convenient life..

It is never okey to abort a child for any reason. We have no right to decide to take another life. Life is sacred and should be nortured and no one is born without a purpose. Even if you see so much poverty or children suffering, they too are part of God's own design and should be allowed to live and fulfill their divine purpose. By killing them, you actually rob them of their basic rights to life and to be born, to better themselves, to make someting meaningful out of their lives and to choose.

This is a social big big problem: nowadays there are so much social diseases around the world that the economical conditions are really bad for many people. To grow children is hard, so many women choose the way of abortion, in my honest opinion we have to separate the abortion for needed, from the abortion just for no having a baby

It is not a child/baby during the early stages of a pregnancy. It is at best a potential life. If a woman is not ready, able or willing to become a parent at this time abortion is a legal (well at least here it is thankfully),viable option for her.
