Abortion is a sin!

If you really are not ready for a baby, a much more humane thing to do is have it and simply give it up for adoption!

I hate abortion, but this should be regulated on a state by state basis. Certainly the government shouldn't be paying for them like Obama wants.

Whether you you are pro-choice or anti-choice, just who has the right to make a decision in this matter over another person? Should the decision makers be political or religious? Would these decision makers be made up of preachers,priests,rabbis,sheri ffs,police chiefs,doctors,good ole boys,or a bunch of little blue hair ladies? To overturn Roe v Wade, there would have to be an appeals process that would have to make decisions instantly, not through a long drawn out court fight. As it stands, R v W protects both sides. You have to right to think and act your way without interference from either side. Keep it legal. Don't revert back to back alley clinics and kitchen table procedures with crochet hooks and herb tea.

Most cases no. But it should be a family decision.

That's a flip-flop answer. Rules for everyone else EXCEPT if it hits close to home and then it should be a family decision. Think hard about your stance. It can't be both ways.

I see no reason why a woman shouldn't have control over her body. The only except I have is late term. I do not believe a zygote should have more power over a woman's body then the women.

Are you kidding me? "Abortion is a sin." So is being a jackass.

Forcing someone to be pregnant is akin to slavery.

Then you have a right to not do it but don't try to stand in the way of those who have a right under Roe v Wade to exercise that right. Good fences make good neighbors. You stay on your side of that fence and your neighbor will do the same. Peace!

if you feel you are not able to financially or emotionally support your baby why put it through the trauma? just give it up.

Sounds ike a perfect plan BUT so many women change their minds once the child arrives and takes it"home" where it's neglected,abused and/or worse. Bottom line: let the mother make the decision and live with it whether you agree or not because it's her decision, not your's.

ABORTION is the killing of a child, it should've NEVER been legalized!
