I believe a baby is a baby no matter how many weaks you are? Studies have shown that the fetus does feel pain at a very young age. Why abort anyway when there are so many people wanting a baby that can't have one. Give those unwanted babies to someone who is unable to have one.

if you have an aborton at the time you are susposed to (7-8 weeks) its ok.. its all opinon. personally i wouldnt beable to mentaly give up a baby (adoption) im sure there are many people out there who also couldnt. so would you have someone go threw and have a baby they cant support. also who knows if those people who have abortions wouldnt end up miscarrying. i dont support it, but im pro choice.

I still beliave that at 7 or 8 weaks these babies can feel. Have you ever watched a documentary on how this is done? And why don't people think about birth control? I know in some cases it isn't 100%.

oh and i agree with birth control. more women need to use it, but also men need think about their part in birth control too! and think about the side effects of birth control. there are alot more then you would think. so look at up, before you think everyone can use it

I think you are forgetting how many children are actually in foster homes waiting for an adoptive family that never comes. Not everyone is looking for a child, especially the older ones. Chances are the child would just end up sitting there until they are 18 and then it no longer matters what happens to them because they're out on their own. A child isn't a fetus until very close to the last trimester. They are nothing more than cells until the brain and heart are formed and functioning. Before it's a fetus, it's a zygote and an embryo.

Those children sitting in foster homes are new babies.

I agree with this 100%. I makes me mad to even hear about people having a abortion.

Bluntly put, abortion is murder. It is taking the life of a human being. Abominable and immoral. I'm pretty sure those who have done this has committed a mortal sin and will likely to end up in Hell. Sorry for being bitter.

Abortion is Killing! no matter how everyone justifies their actions, it is still killing, we should really understand that even our eggs and sperm cells are already alive, you see in the microscope that ecag one of these are already moving on their own, we should not kill them also, it's so evilly immoral!

It can't be referred as killing provided it is done on medical advice.

Have any of you actually had to go through falling pregnant due to rape? Don't you DARE sit there and give an opinion of abortion being wrong until you have been put (with no choice of your own) in a situation of being pregnant because of a rape! It is HELL going through it after being raped, and torture enough deciding what to do with a pregnancy that is a product of rape. Not all of us fall pregnant because we are careless, or lazy, or don't like to use protection. Sometimes there really is NOTHING we can do to stop it. Ever had GBH slipped into your drink without you knowing and waking up the next morning, having no idea that you had been raped the night before, but deep down you sense something isn't right? Ever gone through that? How about 5 weeks later when you're throwing up in the morning and you know you haven't slept with anyone, but you have that gut feeling that it's morning sickness, then you panic, get a pregnancy test and the doc tells you you're 5 weeks pregnant???? Your mind goes back to that night that was all blurry, even though you're sure you only had two drinks. Drunk off two drinks? No i don't think so.....what else happened that night??? Date rape? BINGO. Put yourself into this situation before you judge and assume you think you know what is a good decision or not. Keep an open mind until you have been there, gone through that. Give birth to a child you don't have the heart to give up for adoption because you were, and you felt lost all your life because of it, or keep the child and not be able to look it in the eyes because it is a product of rape? HMMMM, TOUGH CHOICE PEOPLE. I chose to abort, because i was not mentally stable after going through all that, to do anything else at the time.
