are you? or are you not? why? seriously, i am not in favor of abortion because even if it is just a fetus inside the mother's womb, it is already a baby. i mean, if you had unwanted pregnancy, why kill your baby? sometimes i was wondering why other people are in favor of it...

I wasn't favor of abortion, it's life that you kill. don't let the baby suufer for the parents carelessness. It's not the fault of the baby, just BE RESPONSIBLE for the things that you have than.

we already knew that a woman is pregnant if she misses her period for months.. well i'd just tell you how can you just tell that a fetus is just a fetus? that it is somewhat like a simple flesh that must be removed? haven't you even thought that it is your own baby, your own blood, your own flesh? and oh, another information, a fetus develops a heart beat when its just about 3 weeks, thus, its still considered as a life already.

"how can you just tell that a fetus is just a fetus?" I think the term you mean is 'embryo', fetus refers to the later pregnancy. An embryo is a stage in fetal development with specific characteristics. For example, an embryo is NOT viable- if it can not live on it's own, it is not alive. "haven't you even thought that it is your own baby, your own blood, your own flesh? and oh, another information, a fetus develops a heart beat when its just about 3 weeks, thus, its still considered as a life already." My babies have names, they live outside of my body, and function independently. A pregnancy is not a baby- it's a collection of cells that has the POTENTIAL to become a life.

An embryo does, in fact, possess personhood, since "when sperm and ovum join to form the zygote, the individual's genotype is established." "A pregnancy is not a baby - it's a collection of cells that has the potential to become a life" Pregnancy is the carrying of one or more offspring in an embyonal or fetal stage of development. The embryonic stage lasts for about two months. At this point, fetal stage begins. At the beginning of the fetal stage, all major structures including hands, feet, head, brain, and other organs are present, and they continue to grow and develop. When the fetal stage commences, a fetus heart can be seen beating via sonograph; the fetus bends the head, and also makes general movements and startles that involve the whole body. - wikipedia.org

I don't think most people are "in favor of abortion" or "pro-abortion". They started using the term "pro-choice" rather than "pro-abortion" for a reason. First off...prevention is clearly a beter option than abortion. I don't think most people who have abortions think of it as killing a baby. I don't think abortion should be used as a routine alternative to birth control. I think that there are circumstances when abortion is the better choice. The first thing that comes to mind is teens. The second thing that comes to mind is rape. And the third thing that comes to mind is those living in poverty.

The first thing I think of is failed contraception, especially in childfree women. The second thing I think of is rape. The third is kids/date rape/peer pressure/SO abuse. And the last thing I think of is stupidity.

I guess the only thing we can agree on would be God bless america for giving us the freedom to have differences.

as long as an abortion is done for a valid medical or social reason..its fine..like Fetal congenital anamolies, or risk to mother during pregnancy or delivery, or occuring by a henious crime like rape...the indications for medical termination of pregnancy are clearly stated in the MTP Act....

This response is not for this discussion. This one got mixed up with another discussions of yours (PLease do not mind). This response may please be read in reply to your discussion regarding 'sleeping with someone'. I am sorry for the mix-up.

I agree with your views...that going for abortion is like killing someone (even if it is feotus). It is another matter, that sometimes, due to some medical problems who goes for abortion or unfortunately miscarriage occurs, than one cannot help. Good Post!

"i mean, if you had unwanted pregnancy, why kill your baby? " but who's to say its always an unwanted pregnancy? Mine wasnt..we were thrilled that we were preg again since our son was doing so well..unfortunately things took a turn for the absolute worst and we had to make that tough decision to abort..I dont regret my decision at all..it was necessary all things considered and until you or anyone else has been in the exact same position that I or many other women who've aborted have been in then you really couldnt and dont understand...be thankful for that....

"that is how i called the baby inside the womb, not just to unwanted pregnancies... they are a little angels inside" Maybe when you're pregnant you think of them as little growing angels. If it were me, I think it's a disgusting little parasite that needs to be gotten rid of as SOON as possible. The very concept of pregnancy makes my skin crawl and my stomach churn. I refuse to EVER gestate ANY pregnancy for any reason.

Hi, I am not in favour of abortion, moreover if the life of either mother of baby that is in any unavoidable circumstance I would say it is be done to save life, other it is a murder of unborn child and is to be considered as a crime.

Abortion should not be tolerated. It's just like killing human beings and should be stopped

I am not favor in abortion. It is a non sense and wrong doing act of killing an innocent life. Abortion is an absolutely wrong and it is a crime of murder. And absolutely I am not favor for this. And I think the fetus have life and like us she/he have a right to see this wonderful world.

I am not in favor of abortion too. Unwanted pregnancies should be committed with responsibility, it is not the child's fault for being born in your uterus. Let the child live and have it choose for itself what life to live. dont kill it short.
