If a girl has a sexual encounter and gets pregnant but does not wish to have the baby, abortion is one of three possible options; the other two are to keep the child or give it up for adoption. If she is not prepared for motherhood, then the responsible choice would be to have an abortion or give it up for adoption. It's your choice.
There are several good reasons for women to abortion. It is not right to bring a child into the world if the mother is not prepared to take care of it. In cases of rape especially, it is not justified to demand that a mother bring the fetus to birth.
It is right to consider abortion. Abortion has its place in life and needs to remain an option for those that are not able to raise a child. Women are raped all the time and should have the option for an abortion without the repercussion of being shamed by anyone.
It is right to consider abortion. Many people that get pregnant unexpectedly do not have the means, whether it be time or money, to support the demands of an infant. If they considered abortion, while it is often sad and complicated, it provides a means to an end for people that could not properly support the baby.
It is every woman's right, as long as it's done soon after she discovers she's pregnant. There are too many orphans, I don't care what the pro-life people say. The world is overpopulated and every day you hear about children being neglected, abused and killed. It will escalate if woman who don't want the child are forced to have them against their will.
It is extremely important to consider the situation that you are in before deciding to have a baby. This is why abortion can be extremely valuable. If a person is raped, and becomes pregnant from the event then abortion may be the best case for the mother. Abortion is not always wrong, it has good value too.
In no place in America can you get an abortion that is 'killing a baby.' If all these woman would see what really comes out of a woman in a normal abortion, they'd be more worried about serious issues. It's not life, at least not at the stage American abortions happen. In my personal opinion I don't even think life starts at birth.
Even being pro-choice I do not think that it is morally correct to seek an abortion. The two primary components are (1) Choice to have Sex and (2) Selfish Exterminations.
(1) The choice to have sex comes with the risk of pregnancy. There should be no person who believes that there is no risk of pregnancy with the choice to have sex and if not all precautions are taken ( and they rarely are, http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abortion.html, [ Fifty-one percent of women who have abortions had used a contraceptive method in the month they got pregnant, most commonly condoms (27%) or a hormonal method (17%). ] meaning 49% of women did not and at a tally of 1.06m last year that's 53k abortions unprotected ) there should not be a necessarily easy and readily available rejection of the inevitable. It is used widely as an "alternative treatment" for sexual irresponsibility.
(2) As seen above there is very little presentation for concern for responsibility. Fewer than 1% of abortions are due to medical problems or sexual assault (as fewer than less than 1% of assaults even result in pregnancy) however the capital reasons a person has an abortion are Dramatic Change / Disruption of Life ( at #1 no less ), Money, and Refusal to Parent (http://www.Guttmacher.Org/pubs/journals/3711005.Pdf) which further leads me to believe that there is no sense of justifiable standard for irresponsible behavior and that it is not a decision made out of love or care for another but personal taste and rejection of responsibility and consequences.
