Abortion is pretty much murder if you think about it some may say oh well its killing an unborn, child how would you react if your doctor stuck a pipe in your fist born sons head when he was a baby and sucked his brains out? That's sick, if you say you don't care then your pretty much a child murderer its just as sad as as killing a 1month old or any living baby or young kid if you don't want kids use protection if you do want kids go through with it if you change your mind you can always put the child up for adoption at least give the baby a chance to live his or her life.

I would say that abortion is acceptable in CERTAIN situations. For example, imagine this scenario. A 12 year old girl is raped and becomes pregnant. Would you say that because of this, something that happened through no fault of her own, she would have to suffer through giving birth,a painful process, to give birth to a baby, who could possibly destroy all her future plans? Now, if you say that you could give the baby up for adoption, can you guarantee that the baby will have a good, and fulfilling life? How do you think the child would feel when he/she realises that her parents, regardless of who they may have been, gave her up at birth? How would YOU feel, if you were in that position? Feeling rejected by the same people, without whom, you wouldn't have life. Would you not feel unwanted? I know I would. I realise that this is an incredibly sensitive topic,one where many people have a strong opinion. I would like to make it clear that I am NOT stating that abortion is acceptable in all cases,but they are in some.

In cases of rape and incest abortion is acceptable but not as a means of birth control wouldn't you agree and aren't you glad you weren't aborted, abortion kills more innocent babies than wars,hate crimes,and diseases combined people always make a big deal about 10 or 12 kids dieing in a school shooting but their is 50 million babies killed by abortion every year world wide and don't get me wrong im sickened by schools shootings but abortions sicken me to unless its because of incest or rape or the health of the mother.

You cannot compare the school shootings and abortion. The children who died, were human beings that were viciously murdered by others. They had received a glimpse of life, before it was taken away from them. Fetuses, however, do not know what life is. It is not taken away from them. Therefore, you cannot compare the two.

Not all people who have abortion for birth control are being unreasonable. What if the mother is in a state, in which she cannot raise a baby? What if she was in a place where she knew the baby, his/herself wouldn't be safe? Should she allow the baby to be born, and be unsafe, based on just the fact that the fetus has the potential to be life? What if the mother is suffering from an illness, one with which, she is certain that she cannot take care of a child? Should she HAVE to raise a child?

What if the baby was unplanned by a newly wedded couple, who are more than certain that they cannot care for a baby? Should the baby have to be born into a world where it was, at some point, unwanted?

As to your question on how i would feel if i was aborted, i would not feel anything. My brain would not have developed completely, and therefore, i would not have the ability to know that i was aborted. This is why you cannot compare actual murder, with abortion. Because the aborted child never knew he/she was aborted. But the murdered person knew what was happening, and thus that he was leaving behind loved ones.

If the mother was in a state were she couldn't raise a child then she should not have tried to have a child or she should move if she wants one and if the family was in a place were the child wouldn't be able to be raised safely then put the child up for adoption its for his/her own good or give the child to a trust worthy family member who you know can take care of a child and if the mother is suffering from an illness in which she can not take care of the child give it it to a trust worthy family member as i said before or adopt it but only if its for the benefit of the mother.for the newly wedded couple they will eventually start a family so if they have a child before they planned why cant they just raise it together in stead of killing one and having another baby later that's just retarded if you really think about it that's if you can think. we can argue about this all day but im just telling you how it is and i hope you can see that and if the retarde word affense you then im sorry

All abortions (other than those taken for health reasons), are done in the first trimester. A time, in with the fetus cannot exist without the mother. It is attached to mother via the umbilical cord and cannot exist outside of her uterus. Therefore, the fetus in the first trimester cannot be regarded as a separate entity.

Also, abortion is almost never used as a way to avoid giving birth. Only around 8% of abortions are a result of a lack of contraceptives. Even the most careful people can end up getting pregnant. If they did not intend to have the child, then why do others get e chance to force them to do so? You would not force a couple to have a baby otherwise, so why now? when they are at their most stressful?
