Feritlilzation is also another word for conception. Conception takes place when a sperm meets an egg, and later forms. This conception will soon become a fetus. A fetus is not a human being until it takes it's first breath, and this is what many people debate about. In any type of abortion is murder.
Admittedly, having an abortion could be beneficial. Abortion is a good thing for people who have been raped, or are in a life threathening situation. However, being intimate, and taking the risk of you or your partner being pregnant is a decision. If chosen to have sexual intamacy and becoming pregnant, both parents should take the responsibility and make a decision to or not to abort. However, in any type of abortion is murder. Mother's that kill their own unborn baby, or boyfriend's/other significants that harm the unborn child is considered as murder or attempt murder. Even though the baby hasn't taken it's first breath, it will soon be a human being.
I could see that a girl may abort their baby because of financial crisis', but there is another way out. That other way is adoption. Abortion should never be the way out. There are people in the world who can't concieve. Choosing to abort may be the persons decision or choice, but that person should keep in mind that other's aren't so lucky to have children.
Other people who has chosen to abort actually think about the baby a lot after awhile. For example, the parents or parent may think about what their face would've looked like, what their name would've been, or if they were a girl or a boy. Making the decision to abort is a huge decision. Abortion is murder!
In conclusion, Whether or not you want your child, other people in the world may want him or her, and raise a healthy, beautiful baby. Abortion shouldn't be an option at all. Before someone even thinks about abortion, please take the consideration to stop someone from it. Life is an amazing thing, and babies are precious. Think twice before killing someone.

I believe that it is the other way around Stephany. Think about all the rape victims, before they got raped they had their whole life planned out, maybe they did not want a baby before then. Think about all the young teenage parents, some of them are not fit to be mothers yet. Look at it from a different view of perspective think of that person being your own family member, would you want them to get an abortion, their probably traumatized, hurt, and feeling discomfort and they probably would not want to live their life having to tell the child what has happened, and that they were not planned.

No, you're killing a fetus. A fetus isn't a baby until it takes it's first breath.

No, You are forgetting what we're talking about. This is a debate. I am debating that "Abortion is murder." It has nothing to do with me being raped.

Exactly, but you are forgetting we are not talking about a couple we are talking about a rape victim. If you were that one person being raped, what would you feel? Would you not feel distressed, trapped, confused, or hurt? And what if you were having a baby, but that baby was conceived by rape? what would you do?

You mean "point of view?" If it were my family member, they have the right to do whatever they want because it's their decision. It's their body, and whether or not they want to have that body or not. A women should be happy and cheerful, or moody. Not confused about having a child. They shouldn't be having sorrow and bad thoughts about it. If a pregnancy was not planned, then the couple who chose to have sexual intercourse should've never had sex. At all.

yes I noticed that you said that I was simply restating what you have said, but also look at it from a different view of perspective think of that person being your own family member, would you want them to get an abortion, their probably traumatized, hurt, and discomfortable, and they probably would not want to live their life having to tell the child what has happened, and that they were not planned.

As I quote, "Abortion is a good thing for people who have been raped, or are in a life threathening situation. " I also wrote about mother's who aren't ready or prepared to be mothers, but I suggested adoption.
