I am pro-choice, not pro-abortion.

I just wanted to make that clear. When does life start? I don't know, is the simple answer. However, abortion should always be available, because there are just too many circumstances that is necessary. You should be allowed a termination if:


  • You're under the age of 17 (to get basic education out of the way, because you're unlikely to be able to support a child on a minimum wage job without support which, lets face it, is not regularly offered to teen moms because many people adopt an attitude of 'your fault, your problem'.

  • Are endangered by the pregnancy (need I give the justification of this?)

  • Woman is involved in an abusive relationship (it isn't the right place to rear a child and partner may attack once woman begins to show signs of pregnancy).

  • Have mental health problems such as bipolar, schizophrenia, anxiety, Disassociative Identity Disorder etc. that may cause a person to lash out at or neglect the child.

  • The baby's quality of life will be poor or non-existent due to extreme poverty or because tests reveal they will be severely disabled

  • Can provide evidence of extreme birth control such as medical records dating the implantation of coils; long-term prescription for combination pills or extended-cycle pills; purchase of a NuvaRing at least one month prior abortion request; medical records showing that they were fitted with a diaphragm etc. (all of which have a high level of preventing conception).

  • Rape (must have proof they reported it to the police)

  • Have notified the father you want one (but not if you're involved in an abusive relationship and can prove so)

  • Thought it through (provide evidence of date test(s) purchased)

  • Fetus is 20 or less weeks old

Yeah, you can say that. But for example rape cases can be prevented. Mentally retard persons can be protected by family members. And why would you have sex if you are still under age pr you know you cannot raise a baby?
Through prevention, unwanted pregnancy will not be a problem.
Abortion is killing somebody, Taking away his/her opportunity to live in this world. Aborting a baby means kill him/her. How can you murder someone so innocent? Who are not capable of protecting themselves?
