I support abortion in certain cases. In the case of rape, the life of the mother being at stake, or any health issue will, in my opinion, be a legitimate reason for abortion. I would suggest in most cases that abortion is to be avoided if possibly to preserve a precious life, but which life is more precious? The mother or the baby?

I agree with you mostly. I think abortion should only be used in the case of rape and health issues. But I just do not support abortion in other cases. If a couple chooses to have sex, they are choosing this with the knowledge that they may have a child. They also understand that birth control does not always work. I am a discipline person, so I say that with every action there is a consequence, and there is no turning back.
