Jamaica needs to allow girls to become mothers when they are ready to become mothers. Allowing abortion of an unwanted pregnancy will give a chance to provide for a child. Statistics show the crime rate decreased in the 80's after the abortion became legal in the US in the 70's. Could it be the struggle of raising a child in a household unable to support a family leads to higher crime rate?

Jamaica?
The country has nothing to do with your decision to spread your legs.
Yes, allowing abortion of an unwanted pregnancy will give a chance to provide for a child, but so will abstinence. If you can't support a child you need to think about that ahead of time.

"Girls" have no business becoming mothers, women do. If you choose to engage in sexual intercourse (an ADULT activity that should be approached with maturity), then be ready for the consequences.

Learn now that you are responsible for your decisions in life. You can't just conceive - abort, conceive - abort, conceive - abort because if you do that enough times when you do become an adult and want a family you'll find out that your body will not allow you to.

Grow up. Smarten up.

Now, post the pictures of the millions of women in America that have had abortions, some of them multiple abortions, and especially those that cannot have a family anymore, because of abortions, because of wanting to live the wild life, or the convenient life back then, and I think that you would have sedimented your point, Not With My Lady You Dont! LOL!

Disagree. dont speak for other poeple if thats what u believe in then practice it urself. Everybody is the masters of their own fate. If they believe an abortion is necesssary then they should hate the right.,,, of "pro choice".

I also agree that women should have the choice when it comes to abortion. I believe that you misunderstand the sarcasm in my response to 'Not With My Lady You Dont'. In all likelihood, Not With My Lady You Dont is posting from America, where abortions are legal in certain places of the nation, so this poster figures that he/she can voice his/her views on abortion, while attacking women in the Jamaican community, making it out to be something where if abortions were legalized in Jamaica (to which abortions are not legal in Jamaica right now, alongside gay marriage, for those that believe to the contrary...), that Jamaican women would abuse this privilege for their own benefit, so that they can live the wild and carefree lifestyle of pregnancies and abortions along the way!

In my statement, I simply told Not With My Lady You Dont to post the photos of American women that have had abortions with his/her strongly veiled comment supporting anti-abortion legislation in Jamaica by implying that this would lead to irresponsible Jamaican girls and women abusing this privilege to their benefit, so that he/she could show examples of how the scope of Jamaica's girls and women could change, simply because Jamaica decided to allow abortions to occur within their borders, and give Jamaican women the choice where it comes to having a child or not. I believe that this would make Not With My Lady You Dont's comment stronger if he/she was to display the photos of American women that have gone through with abortions (mask their eyes though), along with testimonials of some of these American women that have regrets about their abortions, the numbers showing how many abortions happen every year in America, the numbers which show how many of these women that have had abortions are now incapable of having children, and all that other supporting stuff to back up his/her comment. Not With My Lady You Dont may just catch the concerned ear of many women in Jamaica if he/she shows this supporting evidence to his/her comment, or at least catch the ear of the Jamaican government, which is the more influential group to capture their attention!

How about strengthening family values and social issues!Jamaica's culture is '' DAGGER" HIGHLY SEXED, but like all other countries there is a high rate of teenage pregnancies, Yes i agree as a girl you have no business in spreading your legs,
but then its all boils down to social issues and proper parenting and also a country's culture unless these issues arent addressed we will be swimming in never ending problems...nuff said.....

BTS, I don't believe the poster can come forth with photos and testimonies and the like so you probably will not get a reply to that request.

Abortions were not always legal in the USA. Back in the day, women went to secret houses to have the act performed by people who were not in the medical field and who did bothced up jobs on the women, rendering them incapable of having children ever again. That is perhaps one of the reasons abotrion was legalized. It stopped those illegal abortions from killing both mother and child or rendering a woman incapable of future pregnancies.

I once worked with a young man who told me: If men were able to have babies, the right to have abortions would be included in the Bill of Rights of the U.S.

I was really surprised to hear this coming from a guy. Then he told me about an experience that happened to someone close to him and I began to understand why he made this remark. He said the right to choose was being challenged so vehemently because by allowing women the right to choose, it would be tantamount to allowing them right to to control their lives. He felt that is what was really at stake. Men were not going to allow women the right to choose because it would mean the woman were exercising more control over their own lives.

BTS, what do you think about that? Was this guy on track or way off base with this one?

Totally on track! That is my belief, anyway. Women still have a long way to go in being recognized as equals in our present world...I wish women, especially the ones that go at each other on this forum, would realize this fact. It the type of unruly behaviour that some women on here continue on with, which is giving many men one of many justifications/excuses for where it comes to controlling women, and not treating them as equals! I see this type of female subjugation every day! It is absolutely sickening!
