Should abortion be legal?

Those who believe abortion should be legal generally believe that the decision to end a pregnancy belongs to each individual woman - this view is called pro-choice. The opposing view, pro-life, is based on the belief that an egg becomes a fully fledged human life the moment it is fertilized, and that destroying it should be legally equivalent to murder.

[If the federal government cut funding for abortion, then] Women without money would be left without that choice or in the hands of backyard abortion providers. I haven't ever heard anybody advocate that their moral view dictates women with wealth should be able to get abortions and women without wealth should not, but be in the hands of backyard operators. That's really what a debate about abortion financing at the Commonwealth level is about.

We can all agree with those who see abortion as undesirable. We should promote other means of birth control and reduce the need for abortion.

If all life is precious, then why did the atrocities commited in the 10,000 years of human existence occur. The crusades, 30 years war, slavery, holocaust, and other atrocities all were started by CHRISTIANS! If you think that your religion is the best in the world, why did these things happen. Why was an ocean of blood shed in the name of god during the crusades and 30 years war? Why were blacks enslaved by Christians? Why were Jews murdered just because of their ancestry or religion? All of these horrific actions were commited by Christians! So don't say every life is precious, because based on your history, you are contradicting yourselves. Yes a baby is precious, yes they should have a right to live, but if it means one step closer to our planet's death, is it worth it?

if abortion were outlawed, we'd just do it behind the law, like everything else. and how safe is that? Plus, if we were to be successfully ridden of abortion, we'd be like countries where children are born into bad conditions and forced to work in child labor, in anywhere, and we would have a lower standard of living. No, we don't know about who that child could have become, but it takes parenting to find out. And if a couple considers abortion what are the odds they are good parents? huh? Abortion can do some good with the population too. I wont go cold blooded and say we need the room, but we do, no matter how little room abortions can provide.

It breaks my heart seeing people on here who say they are Christians and yet they are still willing to murder an innocent child. Please take down your Bible and read God's word read what He thinks about unborn babies. I know that sometimes its inconvenient but should we really have the power to decide whether or not someone should live. Christians are supposed to stand out and be a light to the rest of the world but they can't when they are blindly following them and not first consulting their Bibles. Please reconsider. Read your Bible. God loves even the birds in the fields do you not think that He also cares about an Unborn child.

I most definitely disagree. A baby is inside you growing and you want to kill it. Wouldn't it have been a shame if our parents decided to abort you before you were born because it was inconvenient or to many people in the world or your mother was raped. Think about some of your favorite things to do. Do you realize that by aborting your baby they will never get to experience those things? I am a 15 year old girl and a Christian and I know that if I had to chose between killing a baby that I was going to have because I was raped there is no way I'd even consider it. A child is precious. Whatever happened to the time when children were a gift from God? It was something to celebrate why do you think we have baby showers? Parties to show that we're glad another child is coming into the world. I ask you when does the "fetus" become a baby? What changes it? At 8 weeks the baby starts looking more and more like an actual baby so when does it go from a "sack of cells that looks like a baby" to an actual human being?

I think there is a reason why women who abort feel guilt and depression afterwards. It's cause deep down they know it's wrong. And I know people who had had unplanned pregnancies and never regreted having a kid.


1 Point      Anonymous      10 Nov 2012      Stance on Question: Mostly Agree
I'm a nurse and having seen persons come into the emergency department that have been raped by strangers, friends and even their own husbands (yes, this does happen, and just because you are married does not mean you have to have sex, it's still your own body), I understand why people choose to have an abortion. I have seen pregnant 11 year olds, do you think they should carry a child? It's going to ruin their life and their body. For those that say, "Oh, I support it in instances of rape only and nothing else," sorry, you either support it or you don't. There is no walking the line. For those that say a bundle of cells is life, I agree with you, however that can be applied to many things. Frankly, I don't agree with you that is constitutes a person. What you are talking about is potential to be a human. Can those same bundle of cells live without their host? No. So saying that a beating heart means that is it a person, which occurs roughly around 7 weeks, is nonsense. That fetus cannot survive on it's own without a host. The age of viability, roughly around 25 weeks, is when a fetus can survive, WITH major medical intervention. Even then, to ensure survival, you have to make sure that the fetus being born has enough surfactant so that it can breath outside of it's host, otherwise it will not survive. Also, why bring a life into this world that is clearly unwanted? I understand some say that there are plenty of couple out there that want to adopt. Have you looked into the state of foster homes and the sheer number of children in them. I used to work in that field. If a child isn't adopted by the time they are 1 maybe 2 years old, their chances of ever being adopted decrease significantly. There are too many children already out there looking for permanent homes, why bring another child into this world that may be neglected because it wasn't wanted in the first place.

To those that say the fetus can feel pain. Again, you are misguided, please do your research. If there are no pain receptors and no development of a fetal brain, the fetus cannot feel pain. So at 7 weeks when the heart starts to beat, no, the fetus does not feel pain. Somewhere between the 20th and 25th week the fetal brain has developed and even then, the fetus is unlikely to feel pain prior to 28 weeks.

I also find it rather comical when, particularly the republican party, they say that their party platform is pro-life and wants to decrease government support of planned parenthood, and other government agencies that would help these girls and women. What do you tell a 15 year old that got pregnant because of rape, cannot work because she it too young, and because of the republican party has no access to prenatal care and well baby care. How do they afford it? They can't. To say they have to keep the baby, but we will not support you in anyway is a cruel punishment. For those that say their parents can help them, I don't think you understand that there have been many children that have been disowned or kicked out of their homes because they have become pregnant and thus, homeless.

For those religious persons out there, I'm sorry, but imposing your religious beliefs on others not of the same faith is wrong. To say that this nation is founded as a christian nation, I whole heartedly disagree with you. Read your constitution, declaration of independence, but more importantly read Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli. Yes, this nation was founded by persons of christian background but they did not intend to impose their religion on others, that's why they came to America, because England did not allow for other religions. People have different beliefs than you do, and for you to argue that it is wrong because of the christian faith and bible and whatnot, you are committing an offense and suppressing the rights of others by imposing yours on them.

Do research before you speak! Wait, you probably won't because then you'll find science proving you wrong.

the really important thing is that we understand where "rights" come from. the common misconception America is that they're an inherent thing for humans. Show me where these inherent rights are? but even if you can it would commit something called the naturalistic fallcy which says that just since something exists that doesnt mean it is good for it to exist or that it should exist. instead we have a thing called a contract. we agree to follow contracts since they are in our mutual self-interest. i.e. we have a contract to not kill each other since neither of us wants to be killed and it helps us if the other person isnt trying to kill us. Also, if you violate the contract then it becomes null i.e. if you try to kill me im gonna try to kill you right back. The cool thing about contracts is they can only exist when we have something called moral agency, AKA the ability to enter into and obey a contract. This is why things like cows dont have rights, they cannot form contracts. Neither can a fetus as they DONT HAVE MENTAL CAPACITY means they cant enter contracts means no rights.

I agree with this person although the choice of words probably indicates at best, a high school education! I am an atheist and strongly believe that right-wing Christian denominations including the Roman Catholic Church, have undermined our democracy to a major extent over the years. Stem cell research should be strong-
ly encouraged to help put an end to many diseases we confront today. Unfortuantely, religious fanatics, especially in the fascist leaning Republican Party, want to take our great country back 150 years back. Abortion should be encouraged as a way to help reduce the world population which is the greatest long-term threat facing our planet. I am a firm believer in the Socialist Party agenda. We believe in science and evolution. We believe that government has a vital role to play in society and to help level the playing field so that corporations don't screw the people like they did in 2007 and 2008!!! We, on the left, have a proud history of standing up to poor and oppressed people of the world and supporting human rights and the rights of women to make their own reproductive rights, and to minimize the role of religion. People have a right to believe what they want but I do take issue to those who advocate rascism and bigotry which you always see anymore in the Republican Party!!! Abortion rights should always be made safe and legal!!! Always remember this: do we want to have 1.5 billion people like China?
Look at India as well where life is cheap and so many millions live in abject poverty-is that fair to the children who grow up in misery and few opportunties to improve their lives? If there parents had practice common-sense birth control and planning, life would be so much better for these people and elsewhere!!!!

So killing an unborn child should be illegal, eh?
If it becomes outlawed, the people will next want condom usage, vasectomies, and/or getting your tubes tied should also be illegal.
Now, I am a Christian ,but abortion is one of the best ways even though we are preventing the child from living.
The women don't want the child, no matter if they were raped or not.
So, if abortion is outlawed, then mothers will most likely just neglect or abuse the kid.
If they put the kid up for adoption then it will go most of it's life not knowing where or who its parents are and might hate the orphanage.
Some parents might go as far as killing it!
So, in my opinion, abortion should be legal.

Its no surprise that 99% of the pro-lifers make their decision based on their religious views, rather than logic.

Sid, This is not a stupid issue, it's a real/ serious issue. Sure the mother had a choice on what to do with her body but the baby doesn't have a choice. I know that the 'mass of cells' can't feel the ability to feel, think and hurt like a fully developed human being but it is still a living thing. Obesity, world hunger and bullying is not on my mind right now, those are bad things but abortion is wrong, it's murder. You can't tell anyone to grow a damn brain, what's wrong with you? I'm sure no one ever told you to grow a damn brain. If you think that abortion should be legalised, then that's wrong too, do you think it will make things better? no it won't. It'll just allow more people to have sex out of marriage and more babies would be aborted. Why? they can easily abort the baby in the clinic/ hospital and some of the majority of people are not wise and have sex out of marriage, so i'm thinking why even have sex when you don't want a baby?
Views on rape, i can't say anything on this because i'm not sure what to say about this.

This is my opinion, you don't have to agree with me but nothing will change my mind.

Abortion is a HUGE no-no. It is the destruction of human life (yes, I am a Christian). For all the "It's our right" junk people put out, you start to wonder...What in the world happened to the BABY'S rights in all this?
People might argue, " Well, it isn't ACTUALLY a baby , it is just a bundle of cells" or, " It is just tissue.". Chew on this... YOU are a bundle of cells as well! While we are at it, lets make murdering legal, and drugs! And a whole lot of other stuff that I would rather not delve into... But you get my point.

Usually, the mother doesn't know about the baby until a week after conceiving. By then, the baby's heart is pumping. That, I hope, should jump the mental hurdle for those of you who don't believe life begins at conception. "It is the property of the mother". NOOOO, it's the responsibility of the mother. Its blood is usually a different blood type than the mother's, example A that the baby is his/her own person. "The baby is dependent on the mother.". Yes. Just like you are dependent on water, food, the intricate way your body heals itself (proof of God in itself), etc. Are you owned by water,food, etc? Are you getting where I am coming from?

"It is our choice"... Yes, it is ABSOLUTELY your choice to KILL your child, just like it is a persons choice to do drugs or have an affair. That doesn't make it RIGHT.

For those of you who are contemplating over whether or not you should have an abortion, I am begging you... PLEASE DON'T! There are several thousand families willing to adopt.

I love America and the freedoms that are practiced here... But I also love life, and the chance to live it. This is unfair, ungodly, and ugly. The satanic practice of ripping a unborn child from his/her mother's womb needs to STOP.

God Bless You, the born and the unborn.


1 Point      not a fucking retrard      06 Nov 2012      Stance on Question: Agree
You're wrong for a lot of reasons. First, you assume human life is inherently good, which its not. Humans are inherently neutral and do quite a bit of bad shit. You think humans are good simply because you're a human. If you were a cow in a CAFO you would probably think very differently of humans. I'd like to ask where you think rights come from and while your doing it id like you to remember that a) God is fake but even if he exists b) governments are representativess of he people and must be value neutral, especially one that is NOT A CHRISTIAN STATE and is supposed to SEPARATE CHURCH AND STATE and c)youd be forcing a law on ppl based in belief not fact. So where do rights come from? well its called a contract. we agree to follow contracts since they are in our mutual self-interest. i.e. we have a contract to not kill each other since neither of us wants to be killed and it helps us if the other person isnt trying to kill us. Also, if you violate the contract then it becomes null i.e. if you try to kill me im gonna try to kill you right back. The cool thing about contracts is they can only exist when we have something called moral agency, AKA the ability to enter into and obey a contract. This is why the cow in the CAFO doesnt have rights, they cannot form contracts. Neither can a fetus as they DONT HAVE MENTAL CAPACITY means they cant enter contracts means no rights. Sure they have a beating heart, but just cause your heart beats doesnt mean your human, you also need to do things like react, think, and decide. The potential argument is dumb. they also have the potential to grow up and be a serial killer, or a child molester, or a rapist, or the sun could go supernova and abort them on the spot or more likely they have the potential to be an unwanted child of an unstable home growing up in massive amounts of suffering. Instead, abortion is a PAINLESS (they cant feel pain even if the procedure would cause pain (which it doesnt)) way to avoid all that suffering. I'm only sixteen yet I understand where rights come from, mostly cause im not fucking retarded

Carrots are alive and we eat them, yes. But you can't rudely compare a carrot to an unborn child. Why? Because a child has potential. That baby could grow up into a doctor, or an artist, or a biologist, or a factoery worker, or the president. That carrot will never aspire to be anything but a carrot (or possiblly nutrition for a body). That is why abortion's wrong. not because it is 'scientifically' alive, but because it's a living thing with the potential to become a person just like me and you.

I'm only sixteen, but I don't have to be an adult to know killing an unborn child is wrong.

Just my two cents. The right we do have is of freedom of speech and opinion. Personally, Unless a MAN can push a baby out of their non-existant vagina, they should have no right to decide what we do with our bodies in a country where men and women should be equals.

Your parents could have aborted you just because they were worried that you'd become a terrorist. I'm only 15 but I know that you should not base something as serious as ending a child's life on mere chance.

Abortion is not a solution to early pragnancy,there are many options to deal with an unwated pregnanacy or early pregnancy.Abortion is qual as murder,because you are killing an innocent baby,which u think is not precoius to you.but in the first place if you never wanted to get pregnant why you have sex? A baby is a God given pursue happiness and you have to accept it as one.

Abortion is murder to a certain extent. See I am a Christian. And Thou Shall Not Murder. But, the problem I have with this is, there can be something wrong with the baby. And if you deliver it then, its possibles you might not make it. The child may live to a certain age & why take yourself through this when you know that your child will not be living its life fully? What if you get raped? Do you want the baby. That I can not answer. Personally I wouldn't know if i should keep the baby or not.
On the other hand, if you are having unprotected sex & know you don't want a child, then why not use protection. Besides getting pregnant & not want a child. Yes, i believe that's murder if you get rid of that child. You shouldn't have had sex without protection.

This is my opinion.

You say your a Christian then you should believe that nothing happens that isn't God's plan. It might be a part of God's plan for you to have a baby that lives only to be about 10 or younger. It shouldn't be our decision. When we decide whether or not that baby should live then we put ourselves in the place of God. Should you really base your opinion on your own safety would it not be better to take the chance that would have a wonderful healthy baby and you would be fine? You should be trusting God to do what is best for you. You are precious in His eyes no one cares more about you than He does. Do you really think that if He loves you that much that He will do something to hurt you? People need to be trusting in God. He cares and loves you.
God bless you <3

i believe that this issue comes back to one thing. that is the belief of a person. i am a christian. therefore i believe that we should not abort a child no matter what. however if another woman believes that she can and she wants to. then her decision will be in her hands.

whatever we believe in, it is a matter of faith. we will know who we will answer to one day. either to Jesus, or not Buddha or to the Prophet Mohammad and so on.

in the same time, i believe a doctor should be given that choice too. if he believes he shouldnt abort a child, then he must not be forced to. it should not be made a job obligation.

as i said. it is a matter of belief. and that choice is ultimately a personal one. between a pregnant woman and her belief (if she has one). nothing to argue about here.

So you are saying that its a choice for the woman to make but what about the baby? What choice does the baby have? Can you picture this please A baby say about 5 months old slowly growing inside his or her mother waiting for the last four or so months to be up so they can come out and see the world and then in the blink of an eye its gone jerked out of the womb murdered never to actually be able to experience the joy of life. Of course since they aren't born yet they won't know what they are missing. But you will. You will know that, that child never got to experience the joy of a sunny day, the smell of flowers, a rainbow after a storm, the taste of ice cream on a hot summer day, should a poor innocent baby be denied those simple pleasures? Do you really think that it should be up to us sinful human beings to decide whether or not a baby can live to enjoy the stuff the you yourself enjoyed?

I don't believe in God and I do not believe that a foetus develops conscience until the third Trimester. Before that it is nothing but a set of cells. I don't think abortion should be used repeatedly and care free, but I think if a woman decides she does not want her child due to a legit reason (It's easy to be moral when you have money), she has the right to terminate the cells. Religion shouldn't be able to force its rules on everyone who wants an abortion.

there is proof, that a fetus has emotion, and is at least a little aware of whats going on. i think that abortion is a horrible thing, and is equal to murder. i say abortion, how it should be legal, is that it should be limited so its only available where the woman can not give birth and cannot have a c-section, without an extremely high risk of her life being put in danger. i see how people can say that it should be open for rape victims, but its not the baby's fault, it shouldnt be killed, it can be givin up for adoption. a baby is never reponsible for problems in the womens life. if she cannot support the baby, if she doesnt want the baby, she can simply give it up for adoption. think about it. what if you give birth to a baby you didnt want and you see your baby for the first time. are you going to tell the docter to kill the baby, you were gunna have an abortion anyway?

But the baby should not have been there in the first place. I mean, the baby is just another human being, and there are 6 BILLION, our earth can't support much more. And plus, a woman has more right to her body then the fetus. Would you let a total stranger live in your house for nine months, that you didn't consent to be in there.
You don't have to give accomadations to someone you don't know, it may not be their fault their homeless, but it still has no right to live in your home, same with the fetus.
Further more, there is little proof of God, he is not really real, honestly you christians say your good, where were you when Hitler was murdering millions of Jews? Where were you when the slaves were mistreated, raped, murdered? Where were you when the terrorists attacked on 9/11?
Honestly, stop shoving your crap down other people's throat, stop bashing gay people because their different. You are racist, cruel, corrupt, and evil. You are basically the very evil you say you oppose. You are just like the NAZIS, FASCISTS, COMMUNISTS, AL-QUAEDA, AND ALL THE OTHERS, IF JESUS SAW YOU TODAY, HE WOULD CONVERT TO JUDAISM, BECAUSE HIS RELIGION IS BEING USED BY RACIST DOUCHEBAGS WHO CAN'T ACCEPT PROGRESSION AND WANT TO LIVE IN THE 19TH CENTURY, WHEN BLACKS WERE ENSLAVED AND WOMEN WERE TREATED AS CHILDREN, AND CHILDREN WERE WORKED TO DEATH IN FACTORIES, THIS IS THE 21ST CENTURY, MY GOD, YEAH GOD, YOU SAY YOU'RE OF GOD, WHILE ALL YOU ARE ARE COWARDS, RACISTS, COSERVATIVES, AND MOLESTERS.

I ask you where were you? Why weren't you guys out there stopping them? Christians aren't perfect they are far from it. I am a Christian and I know that there are people out there who call themselves Christians and then do stuff that puts them away for years. I am 15 years old I wasn't born when this stuff happened. I know that you can't try and condemn us though because you guys who aren't Christians are just as guilty as we are of the sin in this world. Christians don't bash gay people some of them do treat them wrongly but a Christian who is actually living by God's word knows that even though homosexuality is wrong we aren't supposed to judge instead we are to love them for who they are. Like I said though Christians aren't perfect so they do make mistakes. Also a little fact here Jesus can see us and He hasn't converted to Judaism.

Ok. Reading your comment really got me upset. that baby is 50% of you! And in the case of rape, go to the hospital within 24 hours and they will give you a rape kit. That will remove any sperm from you and a baby will never even be concieved, so there will be no need for an abortion! Oh and where was i when hilter was killing jews? i wasnt born, and wouldnt for what, about 55 years. And dont call people those names! my brother is gay and i love him and so do my CATHOLIC parents, and we support him! You dont know people, dont call priest's rapists and pedo's.

I'm pretty sure the "good christians" were slave owners back in the day too. Science has proven "Gods" were in fact Aliens from other planets. All religions depict stories of Alien wars and spaceships.

Yes some of the "good Christians" as you call them were undoubtedly slave owners but just because someone is a Christian it doesn't mean they are perfect I know you requested that we close our Bibles but if you read Romans 3:23 (I am doubting that you have your own Bible) it says "For ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." No where does it say some of us have sinned or that Christians are perfect. Science may have proven that other "gods" were false but it is impossible for them to prove that my God the only true God doesn't exist. So now I ask you to get a Bible (if you don't already have one) and read it starting with Genesis 1:27 and moving on to Psalms 139:13-16. I pray that God will change your mind and someday soften your heart towards Him and His children. God Bless You and all who read this.

You know the last time I checked "if you had someone living in your house that wasn't welcomed it would be murder if that was the way you got them to leave...funny how all pro abortionists are alive and breathing given the chance to speak up against those who other than time alone would be standing next to you with their point of view...no man nor women have the right to decided who lives or dies..life is life if you don't like it that is a problem of self control! Women who rid the living fetus to make their wonderful life better...would stop at nothing to make their life better..I would not want to get in her way or corner her if she had a human suction or knife in her hand ...a women who kills her fetus and the doctors and nurses who assist her are glorified life snatchers...with blood on their hands...all in the name of free choice..you know my neighbors is lazy and extremely annoying and my life would be better with out her ..guess i should just suck her out of the way
if that doesnt work I will get someone else like the doctor across the street to take his knife to her...sounds sick right? well it is and I am not "every single human life has the right to breath and live" you can not kill to make a life you have had the chance to live better..

Your statement in itself is rediculous. Don't just consider the reason of "Wanting to make their life better" the reason for abortions. What if a woman/girl simply does not have the means to support a child? Picture this: a 14 year old girl, with traditional parents who threaten to disown her and throw her out on the street if she were to ever get pregnant. Meets a guy, who lies about his name and age throughout their relationship and flees the country when he finds out shes pregnant after having sex ONE time (on her first time) and the condom breaks. What is she to do? in a world where a 14 or 15 year old cannot even get a job, and her own parents beat on her on a regular basis? Each woman has their own story and their own reasons you ignorant bafoon. Would you prefer the baby live out on the street with their mother to struggle and possibly die of starvation or infection, or grow up in an abusive home only to come and rob and possibly kill you while your knocking on doors spreading the word of you lord. lol.

Abortion should not be legalized. I strongly believe that none has right to take away a life, only God himself has right to do so because He is the creater , women do not create and the reason why Gdo has allowed the pregnancy is becouse he want that child to live for Him and serve Him one day. So respect the creation God and do not stand against God...

I find it ironic that Christians oppose abortion when God commanded the Israelis to rip open the stomachs of pregnant women when they were pillaging and destroying cities (Hosea 13:16; 2 Kings 15:16; 1 Samuel 15:3 ). The Bible also says that God favors the man who dashes babies against the rocks, thus inhumanely killing them (Psalms 137:8-9). The term "pro life" is a substantially erroneous misnomer for a Christian to bolster when God is evidently pro-murder.

If God was truly pro life, why does he naturally terminate the fetus during a miscarriage? Abortion should be legal because it's a civil rights issue, not a religious issue. Stop enforcing your vacuous religious beliefs to effectively modify politics the way you deem fit.


-1 Point      Sarah      16 Jan 2013      Stance on Question: Disagree
If you had read the verse properly then you would realize that Psalms 137:8-9 wasn't talking about God if you read verse 7 (Remember oh Lord what the EDOMITES did on the day Jerusalem fell "Tear it down," they cried, " Tear it down to its foundations") then it goes on in verses 8 and 9 to say ( O Daughter of Babylon doomed to destruction, happy is he who repays you, he who seizes your infants and crashes them against the rocks.) NEVER ONCE DOES IT SAY THAT GOD IS THE ONE WHO REPAYED THEM. 1 Samuel 15:3 The Lord is punishing the Amalekites for the evil they did to HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE THE ISRAELITES and its says "Now go attack the Amalekites, totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them put them to death, men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.
2 Kings 15:16 "At that time MENAHEM starting out from Tirzah, attacked Tiphsah and everyone in the city and its vicinity, because they refused to open their gates. He sacked Tiphsah and ripped pen all the pregnant women. Verses 17 and 18 In the 39th year of Azariah, Menahem son of Gadi became king of Israel, He reigned in Samaria ten years. He did evil in the eyes of the Lord. During his entire reign he did not turn away from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit. Menahem murdered those people and Menahem was considered evil in the eyes of the Lord.
Please read your Bible correctly before you post incorrect things on the internet where any child could read it. The Bible clearly says in Mark 9:42 that it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied to his neck.
I am 15 years old and I know that God cares just as much about any unborn baby as he does about the rest of world if you doubt how much God loves the world read John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that WHOEVER believes in Him shall not parish but have everlasting life. You ask why He terminates a baby before birth nobody knows the answer to that only God knows but its part of His plan and His purpose.
I ask you this, when does the "fetus" stop being a "fetus" and become a baby?
God Bless You

actually it was the big bang.
i'm pro-choice. women have the right to do whatever the hell they want with their body.
and if they "burn in hell" for this? then so be it. it's their choice.
what women abort is a bunch of cells. nothing more, nothing less.
has anyone else noticed that a lot of men are pro-life? of course they are- it's not their problem.
the bible and other regligious books are nothing more than stories told again and again and again, getting changed constantly into what we see them now.
the fact people so strongly believe them is worrying.
the fact that those people try to impose their beliefs on others is even worse.
i say you can believe whatever the hell you want.
but do NOT EVER impose those on other people.
it is a free world. you can't give something to women and then take it away.
it is no one's choice apart from their own. not the partner's, the doctor's, the family's, the feutus', the government or even a religious figure.
it is solely the woman's choice. and no one can say otherwise

the child has no right. it is a bunch of cells, it cannot think for itself.
the woman however, can.
it is HER right because the feutus is in HER BODY.

adoption is not always the answer.
many children are NOT adopted.

why go 9 months of pregnancy you didn't want to endure, to push out a creature you never wanted?
there is no pleasure for the mother there. just pain and misery if the child was never wanted.

again, the "child" has no rights. it is not a person.

That's a completely different scenerio. A fully developed, human being independant of the womb at whatever age is completely different to an under developed fetus, developing in the womb. A baby does think and feel for itself even if he/she can't walk yet. The baby is already learning as soo as he/she is born. A foetus has no such ability. The foetus doesn't feel pain untill the brain is fully developed at 20 weeks. In Biology we were taught you can't feel pain without a Brain, because the brain conveys the message you are in pain to the rest of your body. Most women have abortions before 12 weeks before the fetus can even move. The ones carried out after 20 weeks are in extreme medical life or death situations or where severe disabilities/painful conditions are detected in the foetus. You don't find out the gender of the foetus till 20 weeks. There is a complete difference between hurting an actual human being, whatever the age and ending the process of cells developing into a person, ready to be born. If the egg became a person as soon as the sperm entered it, why was he/she not born straight away? What is the point in nine months pregnancy if it becomes a she/he already and is a person? He/she would be ready to be born into the world already, meaning no need for nine months of pregnancy only what 1 day of pregnancy. It wouldn't biologically make sense to have nine months of pregnancy if the fertilised egg was already a person. A "mother" may choose "life" but that doesn't mean to say she wants it, or that it was an informed decision.

A Cell IS NOT a living, breathing, functioning member of society, therefore it does not deserve the same rights. Also due to the separation of church from state, religious views that come from any form of church should not be allowed to directly influence government decisions.

Secondly almost everyone who disagrees with abortion are in some way affiliated with the Christian Church, from which they get their ethics. just because the church or the pope says something doesn't mean it is true, in the end they are people too and it is just an opinion.

Rather than regurgitating those morals of the church trying to force them upon society (which makes you a fascist), get your own set of ideas and morals, and think for yourself, learn from experience, rather than debate something you most likely have little to no knowledge of (cough Kassi Croley...)

Actually I have plenty of knowledge when in comes to abortion. One of my family members had an abortion. But I completely disagree with it. I'm not trying to push my religious beliefs on anyone, because honestly to me it doesn't have shit to do with religion. To me it has to do with simple human rights, dude. Why the fuck would you kill someone? That's just messed up. I'm not a fascist, I'm looking at the facts. How is it okay to kill someone that isn't born yet, but you go to prison for killing a newborn baby? There's no difference.

Technically a cell is the smallest form of an living object, but aside from that I could not agree with you more sir. Each person has their own set of morals, and who is anyone else to judge them for that. There are too many what if's in this debate. It also has to be thought of from the perspective of the fetus that could be born, many will say that a woman can give the baby up for adoption. What if that child is adopted and later on in life wants to know his/her true mother and finds out that they were a product of rape, that would be devastating to anyone who came across it. Also the mother would have to carry that burden and a constant reminder of a horrific event for 9 months.

Wait, though. You're saying that it would be better to kill this child then to have them later learn they are products of rape? When they are an actual person, you would rather them die then learn they are a product of rape?

"What if that child is adopted and later on in life wants to know his/her true mother and finds out that they were a product of rape, that would be devastating to anyone who came across it." So, you are saying that somebody who is a "product of rape" is a lesser person than everybody else? What if YOU found out that YOU were a "product of rape," sir? Would you go ask somebody to kill you, or kill yourself, because you do not deserve to live since you are the result of rape? No, because you have made something out of your life. To women who have been raped, it is NOT the child's fault that you have been raped, it should not be held resposible for the crime of the rapist. It should not be seen as the reminder of a traumatic experience, or as an abomination. Yes, the origins are from a disturbing occurance, but that is not the fetus's fault? Any child should be viewed as a gift and treated as such. If you cannot care for the child, than give it up for adoption, and give it a chance at a better life. It does not take a religious person to see that abortion is wrong. Is larva, not going to turn into a fly? Is an egg, not going to hatch into a bird? Is a fetus not going to develope into a human? You say you are christian, while you are pro-choice, but clearly you aren't a true Christian. We take life forgranted so often. Oh, and God didn't drown us and do all this horrible stuff to us, this happened to us because we did not follow God, and do the right things. We failed to do what God wanted us to do, and put us here to do. We hated, when we were supposed to love. We had actions that have consequences. Life is precious, if you cannot see that, than I honestly feel bad for you. I am pro-life, and always will be. I was raised that way. Go ahead and call me a dumb Christian, insult me. The baby only asks for 9 months of your life, and you can't give 9 months, JUST 9 months, of your life, to create one? Being a victim of rape, you are going to create another victim, making you no better than the rapist himself. I'm done. I can only pray that my words will make an impact on anybody who reads this.

Jessica, you're completely over reacting and getting hysterical and like all anti-choice people putting words in other people's mouths. James is not saying that a person born of rape is a lesser person than somebody who isn't. Where is that typed in his comment? Not once. He is merely pointing out that adoption is not always the best choice either and that adoption has negative aspects to it as well. Not the perfect solution like you anti-choice people make out. That's an awful thing that could potentially happen with adoption but even worse is if that child still ends up being abused, neglected or unloved with their adoptive parents because they've failed to bond with the child. Abortion would've stopped the fetus developing into a person and hence that person then wouldn't have had to suffer all of that. The fetus wouldn't have known anything and then would've never come into existence in the first place. And also why do you anti-choice loonies always rant about how it's not the "child's" fault, the woman's been raped. News flash, it's not the woman's fault she's been raped either. You're suggesting that she is somehow at fault and is just as bad as the rapist. I would love for people like you to be raped, denied contraception, forced to puke up all your meals, forced to be constantly drained, constantly in pain, knowing you had no choice in the matter, being humiliated, shamed, trapped, ill, depressed, you're body ripped open, all against your will. I can only pray that this will happen to you and you will struggle through life. A rapist is someone who forces their power and will on another person against their will. Really it is you and all "pro-lifers" who have the same mentality as a rapist: "I have this view. I am superior to this person. I am right, she is wrong. I'm going to impose this view on this person in the most violent of ways. She will have to suffer the consequences of what I force her to do, because I am right and she is wrong. I have power over her because of what I've forced her to do against her will. She has no choice, I do". See the similar patterns of thought between you "pro-lifers" and "rapists?" You're all hypocrites! You pretend that you're doing it out of good for concern of the unborn, but you're not. You just want to see the poor suffer, including the children that will be born into that life as well as the women. You use the "poor, unborn" as a smoke screen to your real sadistic intentions. Well fuck you! Fuck people like you! Fuck your religion and fuck your God!

The church's views on abortion are based on what the bible says, and what the bible says is true, "Thou shall not murder". Truth is not just an opinion. Christians have not forced their beliefs on society. Society has taken God's word and twisted it around to make abortion sound like it's right. It is not a woman's choice rather to bring or destroy a life. It's God's choice. We are His temple. Many say that the fetus is not a human. It IS a human. If not, then what will it become? A puppy? A hourse? No! It's going to be a human being with a purpose, and we have no right to take that purpose away. Society needs to stop trying to be God, and let GOD be God.

I used to think like you, but I realized that it's inconceivable that there weren't pregnant women in the great flood. So God didn't just drown the men, the women, and the children, but he also drowned the fetuses in all of the pregnant women. Now what's going on here? Did God kill the innocent? Of course not! God would have only killed the GUILTY in that flood. He couldn't kill the innocent. God is all love. So the ones who "died" couldn't have had souls yet! I think at about 3 years old, when they start talking back to their parents, these previously mere little walking vessels of life finally get a SOUL. At that point it's justified for God to kill them in the flood, because the Bible says it's wrong to talk back to your parents. And back then, in the times of the flood, everyone was raised so immorally that the kids would have deserved to die. Yes God does say don't murder. But you can't murder something that doesn't have a soul. So I'm a Christian. And I'm pro-abortion.

My position is that I am personally opposed to abortion, but I don't think I have a right to impose my few on the rest of society. I've thought a lot about it, and my position probably doesn't please anyone. I think the government should stay out completely. I will not vote to overturn the Court's decision. I will not vote to curtail a woman's right to choose abortion. But I will also not vote to use federal funds to fund abortion

I can not believe he said he don't think he has the right to impose his views on the rest of society. Then why the hell does he and the rest of the government have the right to tell us that we can not pray in schools, the right to smoke, or the right to leave the word GOD in any gatherings of the government. The right is the government not the people. Give the rights back to the people.

While I do not agree with abortion, there are instances in which I cannot disagree with it either. For example, if an egg is fertilized in a woman's fallopian tubes, there is no possibility for the infant to be born. At the same time, the developing fetus would rupture the fallopian tubes and presents a potential threat of death for the woman. And for what purpose? The infant is one that cannot be born. This is an instance in which I cannot disagree with abortion.


0 Points      Anonymous      25 Sep 2011      General Comment
Actually, the woman's egg must be fertilized in the Fallopian tubes, but if it implants there or travels back, it could and most likely would injure or 'kill' the woman, it would also not be able to live. In this case an abortion should be perfectly justifiable.

1 Point      Brandy Gartman      22 Feb 2011      Stance on Question: Agree
I agree with abortion being the option to a woman or girl after being raped. I agree with them being given TWO OPTIONS.

1) Abortion
2) Adoption (after the bad seed is born)

FOr those who don't know why I call it a bad seed. Mostly because the man is in total control of demons in the religious world so when he impregnates a woman or girl (victim), he is passing on a demon coated seed to be implanted in her "temple" as the religious people call it> They want to call this "murder" or a "sin" but in reality, the woman and girl are trying to avoid birting a bad seed when they get an abortion. When they birth it and put it up for an adoption, they are trying to find individuals to cleanse that bad seed to a good seed when they are feeling to weak or afraid to perform. It is not the fualt of the victim or the baby but the demon rapist who planted his bad seed in the victim's blessed temple.

Also, (out of religion) abortions CAN and DO SAVE LIVES! some women and girls CAN NOT have a baby because their body can not support the growing fetus in their body or the birth of the fetus. These support problems (and other pregnancy problems) can take the life of the victim quicker then an abortion can remove the growing fetus (egg cell). Face facts please, egg cells (fetuses) ARE NOT LIVING BABIES UNTIL THEY TAKE THE FORM OF THE BABY. Before a fetus developes the form of a baby, it is a fertilized and growing egg cell or fetus but not a living thing. When a fetus shapes to the form of an infant, as seen by ultrasounds, then it is a living human being, but while it is not develope into that infant form it is not a living human being. THis is because it has no fully developed organs. If you take biology, you would learn that a living organism needs organs to be classified as "Living", hence the term ORGAN-ism. Just because it is groing inside the woman or girl does not make it human until it forms that infant shape.

That is why abortions are/should be legal. Obama has already made abortions legal and he has done this because there are to many victimized women and girls who were being forced by law to have a baby that belongs to a demonic rapist. Some of these women and girls died, due to the strain on their bodies in developing and birthing these babies. However, nobody cared that they died, because they were happy that demonic rapist's kid was born even though the life of the victim was taken. So yes, abortions are legal and do not listen to what those airhead christians are spouting. They don't understand the real life at stake to birth a bad seed and they will never care. I am christian and I support whatever the victims choose on their own free will, but remember this, abortians are STRICTLY UP TO THE VICTIMS AND NO ONE ELSE.

I absolutely disagree with abortion. Even if you were raped, you shouldn't get an abortion. Sure, it wasn't your fault that you got pregnant, but it isn't the unborn child's fault either. Don't punish him or her for someone else's mistakes. Think about it this way, did your mother get an abortion when she got pregnant with you? No, so you shouldn't abort your baby. It is living, whether you think so or not. Taking nine months out of your life doesn't make up for taking almost 80 years of someone elses. You could always give it up for adoption. Deal with your mistakes, don't take it out on the kid.

It might not be the kids fault that the mother was raped, but the mother has to deal with the emotional process of carrying her rapists child. If getting raped wasn't bad enought, she has to deal with the outcome. It isnt fair to the mother that she has to be reminded of the day she was raped.

You believe abortion should be illegal even if the case of rape. I believe you're mistaken in your belief.

A fertilized egg is not a human. It takes a long time for it to develop into a human - exactly how long is certainly debatable - but it's obviously possible to get an abortion after being raped well before the thing that is destroyed remotely qualifies as a person, by any practical definition we would use for a person. What would be destroyed is just a bunch of cells. It has, for example, no memories yet, which are surely a critical aspect of being a person. This is why if someone was to entirely destroy someone's memories, they would in effect, be murdering that person. So what we're destroying with abortion is not a person but purely the potential of a person.

But purely destroying the potential for life, in of itself is not wrong. If it were, then any action that destroyed the potential for life must also be considered murder. Any woman that didn't have as many kids as she is biologically capable of, is destroying the potential for life. That's an untenable position. Imagine if you were the 17th child of your mother, and you tell your mother that you're happy with your 4 kids, and you don't want to have any more kids. Your mother exclaims "Had I said that, you wouldn't have existed! Stop being so selfish! Keep having kids! You're murdering future people!"

My grandmother was a nurse before Roe v. Wade. She saw horrible things. Any pro-life advocate must be able to stomach consequences that I suspect most don't seriously consider.

On the other hand I'm a little shaky about moral justifications for abortion. I haven't seen good reason to believe that a fetus isn't a person. The best bet for pro-choicers is J.J. Thompson, and I'm with her, but not with enormous confidence.

I believe the moral confusion occurs because people crave an absolute line where what exists is a gradual development into personhood. The question Is the value of a life proportional to its level of consciousness? seems to be the most logical reason to believe that a fetus isn't yet a person.

If you haven't developed a brain that is sophisticated enough to realize that, then you're probably very ignorant. Abortions are wrong when they're used as a form of birth control, not as a last resort. Other than that, people need to mind their own business.
If a child is born into a family that can't support it/didn't want it in the first place, well, that's not much of a life. Now, the child's life and the life of the mother have been for the worse. Why should 2 lives be ruined?

This is a good example of where:

"If you think A should be illegal then you think A is immoral".

Note that the reverse does not work, i.e.:

"If you think A is immoral, you think A should be illegal".

Perhaps you could get overly technical and argue that the link between legality and morality should be severed entirely. However, for the sake of simplicity and practicality, the most obvious illegal acts (e.g. murder, rape, theft) are generally considered immoral acts. It's funny how what is obvious to a 10 year old becomes confusing to an analytical philosopher.

Percentages prove that the number of abortions due to rape are extremely low. And even at that, yes a woman has a right to do what she wishes to her own body, but has no right to kill another human body that is forming. Check out website http://www.christiansexgodsway.com in particular page 2. There are many places a woman/young girl can find help these days for her care and well being when pregnancy is an issue. Many years ago, when the abortion thing first became legal there was little help in place to encourage women to make better decisions, sadly.\
Those who think abortion is such a great thing should go to Youtube and watch "The Silent Scream" and or check out details on how abortion is actually done and what happens to the live child inside, even at a very very tiny, early stage, when abortions instruments are entered into the womb or suction rips off their arms and legs. You can find plenty of real pictures in detail. If it doesn't make you sick, something is wrong.

I would not want to be in a family that kicked me out because I got raped. Screw that family! Go away and make yourself a new life.

1. Please proof read
2. Most of the people who "disagree" would be willing to "bring up the kid" themselves.
3. The language is out of control.

I believe that everyone is entitle to there own opinion and I believe that a woman has a right to do what's best for her future and I also believe that if a feel male get's raped then it's definitely a big deal and up to her if she wants to have a baby of a rapist. It all depends on the person and what they are going through.
