Abortion is a violent act. It is wrong. It should be illegal and any doctor who does it should be charged. Imagine allowing child abuse.

It's true that abortion is a violent act. But what is the mother have no money, or was raped. You wouldn't want to have the memory of that person every time you look at the child.
What if the mother was physically ill, or have mental problems?
Sometimes, abortion is just the way.

Well you both have very good reasons for that debate. But honestly, its non of our business with what those people do, its their life and not ours, but we can help them in anyway to comfort them. Just because you dont see eye to eye with someone doesnt mean that they're not human

I don't consider medical procedures to be violent.

You've outlined the exceptions most anti-choice folks are willing to accept, in this debate.

Can you explain why you have a problem with other reasons a woman may choose abortion? Does it really matter?
