Abortion should not be seen as a crime. Once someone aborts, many view them as a cruel, bad person. A parent who aborts always has a reason behind their abortion. One cannot judge a person if they do not see the situation or know the reason behind their abortion. Many women who abort are young who still have a whole life ahead of them, and are simply unable to provide the baby with all its necessities. Some women get raped, others have health problems, or sometimes the baby has health problems. You have to be able to understand the situation of the parent. No one wants too see a baby suffering along with a young mom who was not able to abort therefore leading to her dropping out of school and living in bad conditions with no education.

Abortion is wrong because it is a direct interference with God's work which is to say the creation of human life. For someone to say that they want to murder their newborn child because they never wanted it in the first place is absolutely heinous and vulgar. There is a far better alternative to abortion known as adoption, and unlike abortion it doesn't pose any threat to the child's life. Though it should be noted that women may not have the same experience when putting their child up for adoption it is still a more humane decision and doesn't involve butchering an innocent child. By the way have you ever thought of what the baby might think about being murdered mercilessly if its ability to speak and comprehend was fully developed? Probably not because as far as your concerned a newborn is just an ignorant fool that is only here for you to do whatever you please with. Abortion also decreases the birth rate which must remain at a stable and constant rate in order to ensure the continuation of our species in the event of a thermonuclear war or some other cataclysm that could thrust mankind towards the brink of extinction.

They are not simply murdering their baby, they are reliving the baby from coming into a world that the mother knows wont go good for the baby because the mother is still struggling in life and will not be able to provide the baby with all its necessities. Babies are expensive, and not having any education or a job will decrease ones chances of being able to survive the land of all the high bills. I understand their is adoption, yet some mothers do not view another family taking care of the child they could not care for. The women that is soon to be mother might have gotten raped and decided that the baby would be better off in gods hands. A baby is no fool, yet it would not be fair for it to come into a world that it cannot be cared for in. Many abortions have been taken into account and our species is not dying off any time soon.

Abortion in my opinion is still wrong and should only be allowed if the woman is raped or her life is in danger. A woman should also not even bother having a baby if she knows she won't be able to take care of it unless she has a family member who is able and willing to take care of the child until she can support and raise the child on her own. Another thing that can be done to avoid abortion is to use protection or birth control except in cases of rape so that the child isn't being killed shortly after it's been born. These options are an excellent alternative to abortion in non-rape related cases and also don't involve the murder of an innocent child.

If you would allow it for rape, why not for the mother condition and how shes doing in life? I understand the protection but some things tend to fail. We just have to look at the mother and how her situation is. If shes struggling she shouldn't bring a baby into the world with her that will cause her to struggle even more. The one carrying the baby should have the decision of aborting or not. And should not be seen any different if she decides to abort the baby.

If a mother is going to end up struggling in life further because of having a baby well then too bad for her. She should have put some thought into it before she decided to have sexual intercourse with her husband or some random dude that would eventually lead to her being pregnant. A woman should have sense enough to know that if she's going to end up having a hard time in life that she doesn't need to have a baby ever or until she gets her life together. It makes absolutely no sense for a woman to have a baby if she won't be able to care for it unless of course she has been raped by some selfish guy who cares only about pleasuring himself regardless of how the woman could be effected. Therefore I will rest my case on the fact that Abortion should only be allowed if the woman has been raped or if the pregnancy is endangering the child and its mother's life because as far as i'm concerned Abortion is murder if it isn't related to these two circumstances.
