This is really a debatable topic.sometimes you have to abort a foetus as it is neccessary for ohysical reasons.Many times abortion is done to get unwanted pregnancy terminated.One can look into this as when you will not be able to give a good life to your child you should not give birth.It is my opinion that just for the sake of having baby ,one should not have baby.You should be able to give proper life to that child who has come to this earth because of you.So if one is not sure that she will be able to do it thane it is better to do abortion .Reasons may be finantial,socialor emotional.One of my friends got aborted her second child becuase she had one which was small & she can't afford anaother at this time.So do yiu think it is crime.I don't think so.I donno about religion also because i am not very much into rituals.I belive in practical life.

I am of course pro-life. I cannot say much for the other people out there but for me personally i will give the child a chance to life and see this world. With regards to religion, abortion is illegal in our country but still it exists. It seems to me that nowadays abortion and cruelty to small babies are tolerable things. What a cruel world that we have.

How are abortion and "cruelty to small babies" even close to the same thing? They have absolutely nothing to do with one another. And I've never heard of anyone condoning torturing an infant.

What any religion has to say about it is unimportant to me not only because I'm not religious but also because the basics of pretty much most relgions are very outdated (very very).....That being said, I USED TO BE Pro Life...until I saw a friend go through something tragic and had to abort....after that i was on the fence really not sure which way to go...shortly after that things happened and I am Pro CHOICE..and I've had an abortion myself with absolutely no regrets at all.....HOWEVER I AM against abortions done repeatedly by a woman becuase she was too dumb to protect herself - I knew someone like that and in all honesty they should have just tied her damn tubes YRS ago! but thats a story all in itself...

I agree your point.But the first timer can be pardoned.If the dumb mistake happens again and again that show that the woman have no respcet for her body.

I am pro-choice, until the child can survive without the need of the womb, it should not receive rights that supercede the mothers. If it jeopardizes the mother’s life at any stage and there is no way of saving her without ending the child's life, then the mother's life should be more valued. My religion is Christianity and the bible does not put an unborn child’s life before the mother.
