Sometimes abortion is necessary. For example what if a woman is raped and ends up pregnant, why should she be forced to have her rapists child ?

One issue on abortion could be solved very easily, and that is called a drop box or baby box. In Russia if a woman has a small infant that she does not want,a drop box is set up around the hospital. Once the baby is placed inside the metal box, the box can not be opened again from the outside. After 5 minutes has passed an alarm notifies the hospital that an infant has been placed in the box, and the nurse goes outside and gets the infant and brings child inside, the infant will be adopted out to a good family. The box is done to give privacy to the woman giving up her child, also that is why the alarm goes off after 5 minutes, to allow the mother time to leave. This is all done in privacy for the mother of the child.

If a system such as this were set in place, think how many infant lives would be spared. The stories of young teen girls who ended up pregnant and scared to tell their parents. who ended up hiding their pregnancy with baggy clothes and then having a baby only to throw it in a garbage can, these kinds of statistics would drop substantially. many times abortion is done simply because the young teen mother is embarrassed and ashamed to tell others she is pregnant, one of the reasons for this is religion, that frowns on anyone who becomes pregnant outside of marriage, in Christianity it is considered a sin to be pregnant outside of marriage and in the old testament women were stoned to death for doing such. Christians have no right dictate to people whom they can love, whom they can marry,and if they can have sex or not, yet they try to control modern society like they always have.

The baby box should be done in America.

The best way to prevent abortions is to prevent unwanted pregnancies by making birth control easily accessible. Statistics show that teaching abstinence ONLY does not prevent kids from having sex but from using birth control. Obviously abstinence is the best way to prevent pregnancy, but our teens should also be aware of various birth control methods and how they can obtain them. Many teens are already sexually active by the time they take "sex ed" in school. They should know about condoms and birth control pills, be encouraged to use them if they are having sex, and be able to obtain at the local health department without parental consent. They should be encouraged to remain abstinent and talk to their parents, but if you were a teenager once, you know how difficult that can be.

I'm sorry, my last comment was for Congressman Caught. I agree with Man of Steel and Guest. In case of rape I honestly agree that would make the decision hard but it isn't the baby's fault. but still what a burden to bare to face a situation like rape! Yet we know if we seek wisdom and pray God will be with us.

Overturn Roe v. Wade? Seriously?? That will not stop abortions. It will only push them back into the alleys with unsanitary conditions and all the unfortunate realities that assures. How sad that anyone would think that would be a step in the right direction. Choice - it may not be for everyone, but it is the law.

Ark. law actually allows a drop off of a new boarn infant at a hospital with any violation of law. Now, I don't know any have a metal box and an alarm but the law is in place for babies to be dropped off.

Do you want abortion to be also easy for your young girls maybe 12 or 13 to get and you not even be notified? In school an aspirin or Tylenol can't be given without parental permission . A child can't be questioned by the law without a parent present yet a child's body can be invaded and your grandchild riped from her body , a decision she may later in life regret, without you, the parent being present. Something is wrong here and that's government takeover of our children where abortion is concerned.and that's just one area. Wait until the UN is in charge as the law of the land. That is how Obama wants it and what he is working toward.

First off 12 and 13 year old girls don't need to be running around having sex to begin with. They need to be playing dress up, makeup, and playing with friends. It is the parents job to educate the preteens and teens about sex,but as usual the parent fails to do this and the government must come in and do this. Just like parents rarely if at all educate the child on the dangers of smoking or drinking alcohol. And the government and school systems have to step in. my neighbors daughters who was 13 years old at the time, her mom was letting a young boy stay the night at their house and of course the 13 yr old girl gets pregnant. Years have passed and the girl is around 18 or 19 now and she is an alcoholic, a school drop out,addicted to drugs, and has a son that she can not even take care of.

Is it the governments fault ? The teachers faults ? No, it is the parents fault, for trying to be the childs best friend instead of laying down a foundation of groundwork and the rights and wrongs of life for her child. This is what happens when a parent fails, go to the Lawrence county jail and you can see a whole jail full of drug addicts, men who sell dope, or molested an underage girl. These individuals i feel sorry for, and you wanna know why? Because their parents failed them to, because if their parents would have taught them the correct virtues of life, these men could have been prominent men of society, maybe even doctors who saved peoples lives. Revery time you read about a meth bust in the newspaper,this was another individual failed by their parents.

Men like to tell women what to do. Also, if you have not been in the shoes of a person that has to make a choice, you probably are not a good judge.

you ever been raped? now go through 9 months of pregnancy carrying your rapists baby to term. you may save some fetuses, i think there would be alot more suicides, having to deal with the memory of how the fetus got there in the first place.

Churches need to do a better job. Instead of a preacher (who hardly understand abortion) telling all the women they are murderers if they have an abortion, try investing a little more in he kids about their responsibility as a sex tempted teen. Also work to bring kids into church that come from unchurched families. And stop thinking kids don't want to know how to behave. Churches are too liberal and families have lost their values. Anymore you can't tell much difference between the churched and unchurched.

Yes, we do not need a state religion, it works better for them to be seperate. But, to have a seperation of church and state does not necessarily mean living God out. The Constitution refers to us (USA) being endowed by our Creator.

Another stupid Republican Congressman has spoken out and said a pregnant woman never has her life in jeapordy due to a pregancy. Were do they get this dumb stuff? Both my grandmothers died from child birth including the babies. What a jackass! No, I'm sorry Democrats, I forgot that is your mascot. Well, anyway, it fits the Congressman.
