Giving birth puts the life of the mother more at risk than the baby. So if a fetus was defected, and wouldn't even be able to survive after birth, why should the mother risk her life to give birth to a baby that won't even survive? And why should the mother become so attached to a baby.. her baby for 9 long months only for the baby to not even have a chance to survive? That is too cruel for the mother.

A woman should be allowed have an abortion.

i believe Abortion should be made illegal.....
We all know that the foetus has a life...it is feeding on the mother's blood...it kicks, moves, listens to what we say to it...
Haven't you noticed one thing...people saying..."I have a good news for all of you..I am going to be a father..." and everyone has a smile on their faces. It is considered to be one of the most happiest moments and news is spread everywhere. People thank God..take care of the mother... and u are saying abortion should be allowed o take place. How can human race be so cruel ? Abortion is nothing but murder of someone who has not yet opened his eyes.

I forgot to reply last time, so here's my extra.

If a woman were denied the right to have an abortion, many women who are raped would be forced to have the child of their rapist. For nine long months, a woman would be forced to be reminded daily of the day they were raped. Poor women may not be able to provide a suitable environment for children. If a woman is denied an abortion, she is more likely to become unemployed, live below the poverty line, and depend of public welfare.

Modern day abortion is very safe. Women actually have a much higher chance of dying from childbirth, than having an abortion. If a woman really wants an abortion, she may even travel to another country, or get an illegal abortion and the procedure may not be as sanitary and safe and she would be putting her life at risk.

Abortion allows women to terminate a pregnancy if the fetus is too damaged to even survive. If a fetus was defected and wouldn't even survive the birth, the mother shouldn't need to risk her life to give birth to a child that will never even have a chance of survival.

Your points are really good but i would like to point that due to the advancements in technology, during the instance of rape and incest, proper medical care can ensure that a woman will not get pregnant. Abortion punishes the unborn child who committed no crime, it is the perpetrator who should be punished.
An abortion can result in medical complications later in life - the risk of ectopic pregnancies doubles and the chances of a miscarriage and pelvic inflammatory disease also increases.
