I Am Sick of People Saying Abortion Is Murder

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,076 People

    It's so silly. Whether

    or not you think abortion is murder, the truth is this is a personal decision between a woman and possibly her partner. It doesn't affect you, she's doing what is best for herself/her family. I don't even understand why people judge and say it's okay when they were raped/their...

    I don't believe that other people should get to

    decide whether a woman chooses to abort or not. It should be her decision only.

    A woman is more than a fetus.

    A law defining a fetus as a "person" and granting it rights superior to women is demeaning to every single woman in the world. Also, abortion is not murder. The legal definition of murder is the following: mur·der/ˈmərdər/ Noun: The unlawful premeditated killing of one...

    Abortion is not murder.

    If women are getting their abortions done at a clinic, where it's safe, that doesn't make it illegal. And there's a cut off for when they stop being legal, which is around 20 weeks. So nobody's murdering babies. Nobody's killing children. And nobody is unlawfully killing human...

    Freakn' Christians!

    It's ironic how the christian bible bashers whom preach abstinence to rowdy teens are against abortion. Abortion is just a symptom of the lack of contraceptives. And if abortion is murder then who's to say that every time I jerk off I'm not killing millions of possible humans? I...

    You can all say it's not murder,

    it is plain and simple, A fetus is alive or you would not have to Kill or murder it. Every woman who has an abortion should be forced to have a complete hysterectomy at the same time, so they can't murder another innocent child, because it's not the right time for them, or they...

    Abortion is not murder.

    You're not killing anything. You're killing a combination of cells that act as a parasite inside you. If you commit abortion in the first/second trimester, you're fine to go. All those pro-lifers need to stop being complete f*cking morons and understand that a fertilised two...

    I may not believe in abortion personally,

    but I believe that it is the choice that only the mother of the fetus should decide

    The only person who has to live with

    that decision is the woman having the abortion. Therefore nobody else deserves the right to butt in and start throwing around their beliefs. It would be illegal surely if it was murder.

    It annoys me when people say "murder" to

    describe abortion. Using "murder," we already run into some problems. Murder means, "the unlawful act of killing a human being." The first problem is that abortion is legal. Therefore, murder cannot be used since it is "the unlawful act." Second, it's to even debate that a fetus...

    Christians And Abortion

    People need to understand the difference

    between an «embryo», a «foetus» and a «child». An embryo is a simple set of diploid-eukaryote cells in its earliest stage of development, while a foetus is a developing human being that can't think for itself and acts as a parasite inside the womb of a woman, whereas a...

    To all of these anti-abortion "pro-life"

    individuals. You don't start living until you're born. So why should abortion matter? Simple. People can't wrap their heads around a fetus. People don't understand that animals abort their children and partake in infanticide all the time. You don't see anyone picketing outside...

    I was almost aborted,

    as was my sister. My sister is alright, but I suffered mentally as an adverse reaction because of the attempt. Unfortunately my little brother or sister did not make it. I honestly hope you find out all your moms thought of aborting you. Would you change your opinions then?

    Control And A Cash Cow

    Claiming that abortion is murder is just to assert control over women and their choices. I'm certain that many who say that have had one themselves. The "Pro life" movement is using abortion as a means to raise a lot of money. That is one topic that conservatives raise that...

    for you but there are people who can't mentally have children.. So having an abortion for a handicapped is better than watching your child get hurt for the rest of your life while you can't do **** bout it . That is the real murder and the real crime.

    The only problem I have with abortion,

    is if you weren't raped, or a complete and honest accident and you used as much protection as possible (not literally) then you should have to deal with the consequences of your negligence of how to be safe.

    mind your own ******* business.

    . Maybe the girl is too young and her body isn't developed enough to handle giving birth. It could kill them. or they have a great future and a baby would get in the way of that. Or maybe they don't have the money or a place to stay to give the child a good life.

    While they are out there screaming "murderer",

    women are still going to the abortion clinics, terminating their pregnancies. Abortion is not murder because it is legal. You can't murder something that you can remove from your body, legally. It is a woman's body, it is her choice.
