Those who create a pregnancy should not abort it because there are other options there are many churches who will be willing to fund to adopt and raise the child for you and if you knew your financial ability don't create a pregnancy. Many who abort suffer from mental and physical pain plus the pain of removing the child. That child can be come something amazing like Celine Dion or Tim Tebow there parents were considering aborting them but they chose to keep them alive.

I do agree that if a couple is not ready for a child, they should not get pregnant. The problem is, many couples do do this. They use protection, the use medicine, etc. Despite this, many times it's not enough. Say the condomn breaks; say the medicine doesn't do its job. In this situation, despite the couples best effort, the woman has a high chance of getting pregnant. Now the couple is faced with a choice: Have the baby and potentially not be able to give it the life it deserves; try to find a church, foster home, or government agency that will take the child and still, possibly, not give it a good life; abort the child and spare it from having a potentially unpleasant life and spare yourself from spending resources you may not have. Out of those choices, which is both the most morally correct and financially responsible?

I understand that abortion can be considered murder and it's not completely morally competent, but it certainly a better alternative than letting the child live and have a childhood that could damage the rest of its life. I am not advocating that abortion should be the only choice; if a couple can find a good place that can raise the child well, by all means, go for that; if the couple can find another couple who wants a child and can raise one well, by all means, give it to them, but if none of these options are available, I believe a couple should have the choice to abort their fetus.

In a short conclusion, abortion should not be a couple's only option, but it should be an available one if there are no better ones.
