Justin I really hope you realise that no one in here likes abortion. No one flippantly thinks it is just ok. Those who support the choice for abortion realise what it is. They're deciding based on more than a (narrow) look at one aspect of the decision and procedure. This apparent total lack of understanding that the woman who experiences an aborted pregnancy is not affected is just sad. How she is affected is tremendous. Dont ever assume the support for choice advocates feel any different.

(and no one ever had an abortion as a result of gay sex )

(and this thread is super silly, and i, like joyfulgirl, don't have the energy to express an opinion)

Personally, I'm against it. I think it's a disgusting action that should be avoided in all instances. If I were female, I would never consider it. As a male, I would offer myself as a solution to prevent it.

But there's the rub. It just ain't my decision. I think of it as wrong, but not everyone does. In fact, MOST people in the world don't consider it wrong. And that's a pretty powerful argument for keeping it legal. How can I subject the world's women to MY very male, religion-based, minority view?

This really is the essence of being Pro Choice. It's a cliche to say it, but it doesn't mean you favor abortion, it simply means you favor choice.

I'm not sure how laws are presently but I believe abortion should be allowed in the first trimester of the pregnancies. After that, well, you miss your boat.

how many women do you think walk around, 5 or 6 months pregant, and suddenly stop in the middle of the street, slap their foreheads, and say, "an abortion! i should get one! i just knew there was something i've been meaning to get around to!"

it's like the wonderfully ironic Sara Silverman joke about the 24 hour waiting period for an abortion: "Quite frankly, I think it's a good law. I was going to get an abortion the other day. I totally wanted an abortion—and it turns out I was just thirsty."

most abortions that happen after the first trimester are usually for the health and safety of the mother, or the mother herself is very, very young (13 or 14) and is in a total state of denial about the pregnancy.

Oooh, ooh...I love abortions. MMMM, dead fetuses. Have you ever seen dead fetus soap on a rope?
I heard about placenta rum on the radio today...sounds tasty.



Ok, I'm just kidding about loving abortions. But, there really is a website for dead fetus soap on a rope and I really did hear about how to make placenta rum on the radio. I think the point is this: Pro-lifers assume that pro-choicers are pro-death. No one actually walks around going "I love abortions...abort abort abort....abort little fetuses!"

Well i think there are enough starving orphans disadvantaged children in our own countries, let alone other third world countries to bring in a baby from a one night stand, an absuvie relationship, a mistake etc. Sometimes its a MISTAKE, the pill and the condom are 99% effective which means one in 100 times possibly some sperm will get through and whoopsie fucking do you're pregnant. ALSO, as Angela said no one wants to have an abortion its an extrmely emotional thing to go through and this misconception of women out there having 15 abortions for every one night stand is LUDICRIOUS!

Also, a lot of adoptions go wrong. The babies mum decided to give it up then doesnt, then does then doesnt etc etc messes around the adoption family, hearts get broken etc etc Then when the child grows up 'i wanna know my real mum, i wanna know my real dad' etc and it makes a whole lot of problems.

I think there are plenty of children already out there needing love and attention, not mistake children brought into the world because its illigial to have an abortion.

and thats mah two cents for ya!

not that I'm against abortion as a right for the people instead of the state, but isn't it a little tricky to assert that abortions are a better option than families getting a 'broken heart' or adopted children having 'issues' with who their real parents are? I mean the option to that is not existing. a lot of people have issues or broken hearts in life, doesn't mean they would prefer to not exist. i wouldn't stop abortion but let's be real about what it is.

I wonder how old Justin24 is? Not that age has much to do with the debate, but he comes across as being very young and fresh behind the ears.
