“It really gets down to convenience for the woman”

people who receive an abortion need to think of others before...they are commiting murder to a person who doesn't have the power to defend themselves. there are millions of couples today who can not have their own children and are looking into adopting. adoption is not possible if the child is aborted at 12 weeks. think about the lives you can change with that one life YOU are responsible for.

I think your comments are disgraceful and desperate!
Obviously you are one of these couples who wants a child and I can understand the pain this must cause.
But if your were raped and tortured and fell pregnant through this then you could call someone who has had an abortion a murderer! But I doubt thats the case and before you say that it isn't the fault of the unborn child who cant defend themselves think of the victim who was raped and couldnt defend themselves!!
I think people like you are very small minded and selfish, perhaps you should think before you start gabbing on about things you know nothing about!!

Each situtionought to be different , each different , i not belive abortion , had chose adoption years ago , But what is right choice for 1 is not right for other ,I find very dis tasful so many narrow minded , This will always be an issue , any choice is difficult , others need not to be so quick to judge , But who thinks of that person that choses abortion , theres rallys going on , police , and doctors , pro choice other groups ,even priests there marches , and you know yes i gave life , But i would never judge any one if chose different , not a narrow minded person as so many are on this topic . And often in these marches are people who have had an abortion , people make own decision , adoptions some are against that too , so donot feel bad , till some one walks in that other persons life , donot say . Its each womans own choice , people need compassion in this , example ought not bring Catholic faith in , But known many that have had abortions , others controceptive ,thats between person, yes as for abused child , rape until there one has too be open minded , I would like to ask , often wonder about the holy as art , or Catholic , what about incest , priest that has achild , some are so blind folded oh that not happen , society needs to wake up , or that parent or that oh my child perfect and you a big wig in community , dont you think ruin high mighty , Each to what is right for them , yes adopted parents are often selfish , I been adopted and also given up child for adoption , i often wished i did have an abortion .

I seriously think the only reason why a selfish person is going to kill an unborn child is just that, selfishness! Yeah there are bad things that can come into play like rape but how often does that happen? The main reason why women get raped is because of porno and the way they flaunt themselves off so whatever! The majority of the selfish women that do this are scared to tell their parents that they were messing aroung maybe because of a certain religious background or for whatever reason. Or maybe they got knocked up like my cousin by someone other than their boyfriend and decided to get rid of the problem before he finds out. Or we also have the idiots who are only thinking of their precious perfect bodies that they don't want to mess up if they actually were going to be humane and carry this child, YES CHILD, to full term and posssibly bless someone who can't have kids! I have 3 beautiful children and 1 on the way and I think that what women are doing to innocence is disgraceful, not only are they taking a life but they are also destroying their own, that is unless they are heartless and don't care. What I mean is someday they are going to look back and realize that they did take a life and they could have a beautiful child running around beind innocent like a child should! Shame on you for taking that away from these children that will never be born because of selfishness!!!!!!!!!!

this is for disturbed in Arizona.Boy you almost sad as bad as another on this form , life and birth is something you , as well as our family isproud of . That our choice was best for us , But you sound young and possibility not knowledge or education . But unfortunate in my line of work , rape can be any woman walking it happens alot more then your narrow mind sees , nor do you or would you do my line of work . Also hope your daughter or grandaughter , or niece never raped , you raise that kids baby, which you prombly would , hope on way to school not raped and pregnant ,many raped victims in this line of work ,canot look at that baby , yes theres been casesof married women being attacked and raped , few cases rare the lady husband will raise love like his . I n raped cases you must get help , checked for things . so do your home work before you condem, also you know very elderly lady also got raped , rape knows no age or dress , yes if some kids or that dress risky are more for rape , But no one does force of rape . This line of work we keep our thoughts and views to our self. I know many that feel sex is wrong before marriage , But in rape 1DOESNOT DESERVE ,ANY FORCE . Some think and feel as a taxpayer many rather not pay for or have food stamps , wic , medicade , some feel if poor donot have achild , so wake up , do you good to get ajob , or voleenter at a rape call center , would widen your eyes . Yes i am glad you gave life . But some for what ever donot want adoptions , and fear child comes back in life , tender topic , what is right for 1 is not same for other , like a neighbourhood ,or job , Different choices . Hope you your self or any one of your daughters not raped , or attacked b y a sex offender , look at that for a moment .

I reallt agree to the fact that only a selfish woman would have an abortion. Although rape and unwanted pregnacys due occur more often than todays society would like to believe, i strongly believe that it is No bodys place to take away the life of an unborn child, for not one of us can give life when ever we are ready. Life is a gift and a blessing, and if they chose to refuse they they should pass the blessing on to someone who is more deserveing. So even in the traggity of a rap or incesst i know abortions are wrong.

I am recently out of prison for trafficing, a real bad mistake, but they saved my life. I met a nice man, fell in love, didn't use protection, now am told I am pregnant. Since I am on probation for 3 1/2 more years, I really don't want to bring a child into the world until I am off probation and more mature, I am now 30 years old. He wants me to have it but he can't contribute financially. I don't want to be on the State, I am working and saving, but scared that I may have to get done work and have no other means of support. Am I being selfish to abort. The clinic wouldn't do one, because nothing showed up in the sonagram. Is this a true statement? My parents support my decision to abort, but worried that I may wait too long, if I follow the clinics advise in waiting a few more weeks.

Only you can make that decision on what you want to do. Being on probation won't harm the child or anything. Have you thought about adoption? I can understand not wanting to be on state aid but it would be temp since you are working. It doesn't matter if he says he can't give you money since you are not married he has to pay child support if you chose to have the child. Have you thought about having the child and giving it to him to raise? I would think long and hard on this before making any decision. How will you feel about aborting? This is what you ned to think about how you can deal with it.

I think you are selfish. You claim that women are raped because they flaunt themselves? No. Women are raped because of people like you who blaim them instead of the EVIL PIG OF A MAN that would force themself on another. If men were taught to be REAL men, then they would control themselves. For example, if you were taught to be a real man then you would be able to control your hateful comments, and show mercy to your fellow (wo)man.

I actually cannot get my head around this -
a gew scenarios for you:

1. A child is concieved of rape (as discussed)
2. A child is concieved and when born will kill the mother, baby or both
3. When the baby is born they will be ill, possibly terminally so
4. The mother is unfit to care for a child, but cannot face the idea of someone else looking after the baby for fear of how it will be treated/shame she cannot look after it
5.The mother is very young and a child will ruin every possibility she has in life, and feels the same as the woman in the above point. Because of her young age she would not be able to gain her qualifications and be able to get a job.(this is very true in England, you Cannot get a job without basic GCSE qualifications, even then they are minimum wage)

I think it is all to do with the mother. If having a baby fits in with any of the points above, i feel that regardless of faith or social status she should be able to terminate the baby.
i do nt really care if it sounds selfish. but if i was in that situation, i could always have another child when i was prepared.
I myself do not intend to have children (many feel that i am wasting my body - i think that they need to learn a little about real life (a woman's role in society is changing, we are not housewives any more but have the ability to be fully-fleged powerful figures)- my body isn't just a baby machine.

however, i do protest a little at people in a perfectly good situation aborting a child because they do not want to have to share their possesions with something they created, and reasons similar to that.

i am the mother of three lovley girls but have had an abortion this would have been my first son at my first scan i was told that he had a lot of problems and if i went to full term he would not survive more than 24 hours and would be in a lot of pain during those so please tell me am i selfish for what i did as i do not belive i am i know he is my son but i would not be able to live with my self knowing that he had dyed what would have been a very painful death some people really need to think before they open there mouths abortion is not an easy choice but in meny cases is a heart breaking choice that has to be made

I think everyone who thinks abortions are sick, well your sick!...yeh fair enough there may be people out there who can't have them and I feel for them but thats not my fault. I'm not selfish just because I wanted an abortion.I was looking out for the the kid, its dad and me.It would just ruin the kids life bringing it into a world where I couldnt give it anything, but if I waited a few years the maybe I would. And yeh,you's people might just say give it to another family,but I would rather not have my kid than to know that my kid is running around someone elses house and garden calling someone else mummy and daddy!! And all this rape stuff??,this is especially to that cow above(disturbed),that you sound like the most selfish person ever!, people don't get raped because they flaunt theirselves, most of them are harmless girls just walking home or something,and yet SELFISH people like you tend to blame the girl and say its her fault when really its the guys, He's evil enough to jump on someone else and cant keep his dick in his trousers for more than 5 minutes!...so yeh I agree with girls who have been raped, if they want to get rid of their kid then fair enough,why would you want to bring something into the world that just reminds you of the pig that done that to you?

I think you must be very silly in thinking abortion is wrong, im 21 and having an abortion tomorrow due to the fact it was an accident, i cant look after myself let alone a child, as for adoption thats even worse think how the child feels knowing its parents didnt want them, sorry if you cant have children but thats not our fault!! I'll have my child when im good and ready and when i give birth it will be for me not to give it away!! I find it very hypocritical does anyone think of the starving dying children in third world countries for no fault of their own!! We're lucky to have this option!! It makes me sick how people call it murder!! As for that phsyco disturbed freak what the hell are you talking about, ive discussed this with both my parents along with the father aswell, i have no shame in aborting this baby i am 7 weeks pregnant and couldn't think of anything worse than to have a child at this stage in my life! As for the rape, are you completely deluded?????? Why would you want a child from a rapist no women deserves to be raped and no child deserves to grow up thinking about the way he was conceived and what was done to his/her mother, have thought about that, it could seriousy destroy a child, you are one weird women and i only hope for you own sake and stupidity that nothing like that happens to any of your daughters as im sure you'd think differently then! And if not then god help your kids to have such a dick head of a mother!!!!!!!!!!

In response to Nikita age 21, you have a lot of hate in your heart. I wonder what happened to you that made you so angry. I feel sorry for you because I am the product of a rape and I love my mother and am so gracious that she gave me life. She always told me that though it was difficult, the decision to end my life would not be up to her, but to God. Do you know what kind of strength and love she represents? The ultimate. Because if you are a Christian you know that you should act in the image of God. Would Jesus, if he was a woman, kill an unborn child becuase of rape? No. It is not the childs fault. How can you be so presumptuous to know how some one would feel if given the chance of life. I don't think you could find one person, no matter how terrible there environment or situation, that would say I wish you would have ended my life. Every person has value no matter how they were brought to life.
