What about when certain persons have more than one abortion an on on without any remorse

I would say that it is this person's CHOICE--and she is entitled to it. How do you know that she has no remorse?

I can only imagine that this must be one of the hardest choices a woman ever has to make, but maybe better than having an unwanted child that she can't support. And certainly better for the tax payers. Too many people are having several children when they are financially and emotionally unable to support a hamster.

I am not pro-abortion, but I am pro-choice.

* I am 100% pro-CHOICE. Women that have abortions have to make that hard decision and live with it. It's not mine nor anyone else's business. I would rather have a woman go to a certified clinic rather than a back ally any day of the week! That's her choice and I am none to judge her decisions. Not all women use abortions as "birth control", though. For most, it is one of the biggest decisions they will ever have to make. Just remember.. you know nothing of that woman's life so you have no right to judge them. They have to live with that consequence and they never forget. It's hard enough for those ladies to go to the clinic without pro-lifers shoving hate down there throat.

One abortion, I can understand. More than one... I personally think it is a lousy way of birth control. I used to be very much pro-choice, but having a little grandbaby born at 27 weeks and watching that little "fetus" grow outside the womb.. I personally can no longer support abortions. It changed everything for me. I think if a woman is stupid enough to continue to get pregnant, she should have herself fixed (ie tubal ligation). IF she's having multiple abortions, she isn't having any remorse either.. nice try.

I don't see how it can be someone's choice to kill a baby. If that is the case shouldn't we have the choice to walk up and kill anyone? It's no different.... Kill millions of babies.. No big deal. Kill anyone else.. Most likely life in prison. It just doesn't make much sense to me.

One is either pro-life or pro-death. That's the 'choice'.

The problem with getting tubes tied is most doctors won't do it until they have had at least a couple of kids and in their late 20s

I had mine done at age 23, but I did have two kids and was married. However, the government gives you birth control... there really is no excuse for an "oops" pregnancy and certainly not the sheer number of abortions that go on day by day. I railed against the anti-abortion people for years...went on and on about a woman's right..etc all the b.s. that one spouts out.. like I said, I had to turn my way of thinking about....I'm not going to tell someone else what to do, but I just believe it's taking a life...Back it when Roe v. Wade was upheld it was one thing.. Now, we KNOW what the baby looks like in the womb.. that it feels pain.. hell, they even do surgery on fetuses.. what is so hard to understand that it's a baby- not a clump of cells?

I'm all for abortion. Keeps the population down and keeps kids out of bad homes. Abortion should be much easier to get as well. You religious nuts don't need a say in it, its between them and their maker.

Abortion docs are doing an honorable and necessary job that society desperately needs. We should honor them whenever we can, they deserve it.

My impression of abortion physicians financial situation is that that most of the $ earned doing such procedures is eaten up by insurance, lawyers to fend off legal actions, and security.

I would find it appalling to be raped, victim of incest, my life was endangered or my baby would have SEVERE birth defects & someone else makes the decision for me that I could not have an abortion IF I wanted to! Having said that, I personally cannot imagine "taking the life of another", especially my own child. PERSONALLY, I would not use this as a means of birth control & find it rather appalling that some do given the access to birth control & planned parenting information widely available. In reality though, not all people view children as a gift or their conception as miraculous. Sadly, there are so many children who simply cannot be provided for, their parents are incapable of being responsible, and they become lifetime burdens to society just by simply being born into the wrong set of circumstances. I know of so many of these situations & find it devastating for the children and even society. I don't think there is a magic answer of what is right & wrong other than what is right for me PERSONALLY.

What if your daughter was raped by a horrible person? Would you expect her to carry the baby to term? I PERSONALLY would not EVER want to be in that situation but it happens. I also cannot imagine being in the situation of having to make a decision to "take another life" but what if your raped daughter is only thirteen? Would you want to give away your grandchild, take its life during an abortion or subject a child into raising it? VERY DIFFICULT MORAL DECISIONS BASED ON REALITY OF WHAT COULD HAPPEN.

I know of many adoptive parents who are not the greatest either so I don't think giving the child up for adoption is a magic cure all either. Again, it's such a personal decision & thankfully I've never been in the situation to have to make it! I think people should think of these issues before they cast stones on what is so horrible one way or the other. If anyone has the perfect answer then I would love to know what it is!!!

I think it should be an OPTION in cases where the mother is raped, the child will have severe disabilities, incest, the mother's life is endangered & maybe a few other limited circumstances. Maybe I'm pro-life until those situations arise & then I am pro-choice. Life is so precious & I so wish all on earth would be loved & thrive upon arrival but that is not reality!:(

I agree with you, but incest? That's kind of an option before hand.

Not all cases of incest are necessarily consensual. Sometimes, inappropriate relationships such as these do not result in pregnancies until the person has been perped on for so long that it becomes "normal"...somewhat consensual...due to the control the perp has on the victim. The "sick f***s" in Austria & Australia who had fathered children with their own daughters & then perped on their children/grandchildren would be an example of this. Those cases made international news a few years back. Cases where women were abducted or otherwise held against their will & became somewhat brainwashed by the perp's inappropriate behavior over time would not technically be rape in some situations.

People need to ask in their ultimate F'd up egos, who in the hell they think that they are to even have an opinion. God judges those with opinions

These pro life groups are nothing but pro death traps. They jump us into wars In an instant. I hate them. I hope that they die

Yep, I think I'm with you on this one Nita....THose circumstances would certainly make one take some deep thoughts at what was going on and what they should do. I could not fault anyone for having an abortion under these circumstances.

I understand and agree. Didn't know for sure what you were talking about. Is that not some sick stuff?

I think the common link between all of Nita's points is that they are either medical issues or results of forced or coerced sex. The bigger issue is the use of abortion as a backup plan to a wild night going wrong. Rather than take responsibility before or during, people rely on abortion as a fall back plan. With all of the available birth control options out there it is almost inexcusable for an unwanted pregnancy to occur.
