1: I don't agree with abortion. I find it surprisily irritating when pro-choice people claim that abortion is right because they have the right to choose. Personally I choose to support the child's rights to life, that's all. I don't believe that a human being has the right to kill another human being. I mean, I also have the choice to get a gun and murder someone, but I don't do that and then claim it was my choice. And that doesn't make me a sexist, a closed minded person or anything else. 2: I might be clearly and obviously agaist it, BUT something that certain Pro-Lifers do is also irritating. If I had A dollar every time I saw the sentence "OMG abortion is wrong because jesus said so" or "The Bible says it's a sin so don't do it" I'd be richer that Oprah. People, please stop using Religion to support your opinions, because, simply not everybody believes what you believe. Using religion while debating (except if youre debating ABOUT religion) it's pointless. I'm sorry if I sound offensive or mean to anyone, but that subject tends to upset me.
If someone said that to me, I would, respectfully, disagree.
Personally, I don't see anything wrong with it. It is the mother's choice. People have the right to choose what they want to do - civil rights and all that. If they don't want the baby, then okay. Let them abort.
Also, most abortions happen near the beginning of the pregnancy. That early on, the fetus is not, IMO, alive, since it is still dependent on the mother because of the umbilical cord and placenta.
And, of course, it isn't always wrong as is. What if the mother was a rape victim? The pregnancy could also hurt the mother psychologically, if that was the case. And what if it's severely damaging to the mother's health to be pregnant or give birth?
That's bullshit, and it's really boring to discuss this... If people are against women's rights, then so be it... I, personally, think they should mover to Saudi Arabia and let us civilized people do our job :)
I just want to congratulate everyone on behaving civiliy. Most of the time this conversation gets brought up (not necessarily on Fanpop), it turns into a huge argument. With that being said, I personally believe that abortion is wrong. I do, however, think there may be a few, and I emphasize few, cases where abortion might be neccessary. Like if the pregnancy was threatening the mother's life.
Oh my god, not this AGAIN. WEll, I suppose I should list my reasons for being pro choice.
1. Abortion is NOT KILLING ANYONE. The 'baby' isn't born yet, so you wouldn't be destroying a human life. The fetus would be relying on the mother, so cannot be regarded as a separate being as it cannot exist outside of her womb.
2. Okay, you people need to get one thing straight: in no part of the bible does it say that abortion is wrong. It can't! They didn't even HAVE abortion when the bible was written! What it DOES say however, is that life is sacred. Which I agree with and is true. Someone who didn't like abortion read that and said: "Oh, life is sacred, that means that jesus was against abortion." (Ummmm... really? Is THAT what it means?) And the bible isn't that accurate anyways, so find a new argument. (And yes, I'm talking to YOU Fundamentalist Crazys.) 3. Picture this: a woman gets raped and becomes pregnant, and then chooses abortion because she doesn't want to be reminded of that for the rest of her life. Is that wrong? Is saving yourself years of psychological stress wrong? 4. Ditto teenage pregnancy. Just my opinion. :D
Agreed. Abortion is wrong. Theres other choices instead of killing off a fetus and not giving it ever a chance to live. Redgardless if it was a rape victom they shouldnt destroy another life because of it. My opinion is my opnion but i have seen many women abort; and everytime afterwards there entire life becomes hell.
I don't have a problem with abortion as long as its under level 3. When people say: "OMG THATS LIKE MURDERING SOMEONE!!! WHAT CHOICE DOES THE BABY HAVE ON THIS??? It pisses me off. The baby isn't even alive yet... -_-
I agree that it IS wrong!!! i hate it e=when ppl do that its so upsetting. I think the bebês have the right to live. if the person doesnt wanta kid that they should KEEP THEIR LEGS CLOSED!!!!!! And if they get pregnet why cant they just set the baby up for adopition to give it to a better family insted of killing somthing that didnt do anything wrong. I think ppl need to think befor they do stuff like that! Im sorry but thats my opion.
