A fetus is a stage of LIFE just the same as infantcy, childhood, adolescence or adulthood. Ending an innocent life at any stage is MURDER.

What a silly question...Abortion should only be legal if you have the means to pay a private physician to take care of it quietly, so no one ever finds out about it. You know, like a good Christian. Any poor women who make waves by thinking they have some kind of right to say what happens to thier body's? Well, I hope they get Breast Cancer and die. See ya at the 5k!!

I don't believe in abortions unless in certain circumstances. I don't believe I have the right to force my beliefs on others though either. But I do believe that I should not have to pay for someone else's decision the have an abortion.

Perhap's abortions should be banned, as long as the taxpayers are willing to pay for the entitlements involved, in the raising of the additional children?...

I don't believe I should have to pay for that either. Why do people think someone else has to always pay for their stupidity?

I actually agree with you, but just a bit more liberal with the choice part....above post was to see, whether people dislike entitlements or abortions more....i dislike entitlements more....

So....should a female fetus have a right to have a say about what happens to HER body? Oh, wait...as long as the female is unable to speak, it's okay to slaughter her like we do pigs and cattle. No, wait...we slaughter pigs and cattle more humanely and and least there's a purpose for killing them other than that they are an inconvenience.
It says a lot about us as a country in that we dispose of our unwanted pets more humanely than we dispose of our unwanted children and justify it as a 'woman's right to choose'.
Sure...go join PETA and campaign for the rights of cattle, cats and dogs to be killed humanely but look the other way when a human being is torn apart inside it's mother and wish death on those who try to speak for those who have no voice.

unfortunately abortion is partisan, either personally or politically. as for me i cant really say because i am not a woman. most politicians are men, has been ... still is.
i think abortion should be a woman led crusade...and i would live with the results.

For once, we agree. It is the law of the land as interpreted by the Supreme Court. It won't be changed until there is a successful challenge to the law. We have much bigger fish to fry.

How many teabaggers would change their minds if the law required abortion if the father was from Kenya?

Imagine that!

Unless a woman is sexually taken advantage of they, or their partners, should wear protection and use birth control until they are absolutely sure they want a baby and have planned thoroughly financially, mentally, physically and morally - for the manifestation of one to be brought into the world. That should minimize the questions or the resulting to allowing abortion
