I don't support abortion itself in that I gleefully say "just have an abortion" with a big stupid smile on my face as a solution.<br />
But I support a woman's right to have that option.<br />
and I could go on about the differences between embryos, fetuses, and newborns, and cats and dogs, but everyone and their mother, I'm sure already knows those arguments, or will hear them, so I won't. I get tired of the abortion controversy. Everyone spews the same arguments for or against, and none of it really helps or persuades someone to change their mind. It's basically just people looking for an argument or looking for others to validate their own sense of righteousness.
I and a lot of women I know have had abortions and are relieved as a result.
if the cat was pregnant do u think u would b charged with killing 1 cat or 8?
im just going by the ex you gave in your details section. please refer back if you forgot :)
Yes I support it. I support it for many reasons and have mentioned them before so I don't feel a need to repeat them. I don't believe anything that isn't born has rights or life either.
yes, we dont need more people when we can't even take care of the ones we've got. I see nothing wrong with supposedly "killing" a fetus, when people don't seem to care a lick about actual living human beings...just seems like a hypocritical argument to say you care about life when your actions say otherwise...and I'd rather be honest with myself and (maybe or maybe not) do something wrong, than be a self-righteous hypocrite who claims to care about things that his/her actions contradict.
:) i wasnt really looking forward to a reply, just wanted to offer an alternative opinion from those so often spouted
No I do not. It is murder of a human life. Even in cases of rape or ****** it is still a human life. I feel for the woman/girl that has been raped but I also feel for the baby too.
You are welcome. I was raped and had a baby when I was very young. My parents killed the baby but I still grieve over the loss.
Abortion isn't murder; murder is the unlawful killing of another. Abortion is legal in the US and many other places.
So why not add more injury to injury, right? Ridiculous. smdh
I don't support it and I'm not fully against it. If I got a woman pregnant and she wanted to get an abortion, I would support her decision but if she was against it then I wouldn't try to pressure her to get one.
Cuz its NOT a baby yet
Alright then, the MOMENT that happens, c-section it n let me know HOW it works out
good point! @therqckstarz
Then y wait 9 months, c-section the fetus NOW n ENJOY
I think his point is...it's not a baby. Which is true because a baby would be the complete organism...now alive has two meanings....all cells are alive...but the are not separate lifeforms.
Then by all means, as SOON as u become" LEGALLY" pregnant ...c-section it n ENJOY
Legally pregnant? Wtf does that even mean?
I guess when the DR. makes it OFFICIAL
Sure do. I've directly supported an abortion in fact.
I dont support abortion, i support the woman's choice whether she wants or doesnt want this growing inside her.<br />
Its not a baby yet, its still a fetus.
'Life' can describe many things.
How dare people call a 'fetus' a 'fetus'!
Like I said, c-section the fetus n see what happens
Well only if the women was forced into being pregnant or raped. If its because she or he forgot about protection, then I think you have to face the mistake.
I support a woman's choice in the matter: her body, her life, her decision
I personally would probably not have one. But I support the right of women to make the choice for themselves, because I also realise that I wouldn't be the one assisting them with their prenatal care, experiencing the childbirth, or raising the child. And early termininations are basically removing a cell cluster, certainly not murder (rhetoric notwithstanding). With all due respect, as I've said before, any man who wants to weigh in would be better served encouraging his own gender to use condoms. Where he chooses to spill his seed is HIS control over the situation.
I support abortion 100% <br />
As to your other question about killing babys vs dogs or cats ,that's something entirely different . I've killed quite a few stray dogs and cats, never killed a baby I can't imagine what the perpose of that would be except euthanasia perhaps.
Cats have love for the dead, we can't wait to eat them.
I support abortion as a woman's option for a variety of "reasons".<br />
28 years ago I had an ectopic pregnancy and to save my life, the pregnancy was terminated. This allowed me to go on and raise my son and have two more children, years later.
No sane person supports abortion. Just want to make that clear. Some people believe it is necessary and/or acceptable in some circumstances.<br />
If a girl has an IUD or takes a morning after pill, there is a reasonable chance that their chosen method of contraception will in fact kill a newly fertilized egg or prevent it from attaching to the womb lining. It is not uncommon for women using those methods to have miscarriages 8-12 weeks into a pregnancy forced by the toxic chemicals of the contraceptive. Is that any better, simply because it's more personally passive?<br />
That is just food for thought. The real question is "when does a cluster of cells become a baby?" not "Is it ok to kill babies?", and in that there is FAR more room for opinions, differing views, ambiguities on all sides and a generally much more grey area. If you think that abortion is an issue that is at all black and white, your world view is ignorant, bigoted, extremist or morally dubious. Perhaps more than one of those.
Most people would think that morality should be based in sane decision-making.
I do support abortion as an option for a woman, and what do babies and cats and dogs have to do with abortion? Nothing.
lol zonus, i did not get your question either, so either it is your communication or ours...but whatever. And btw...the idea that human life is more important than animal life is not universal. I do not believe it to be true. And I also believe that animals are legally killed everyday...pets as well as those we eat. It is only when the violence towards animals is due to neglect or, in the more disturbing scenario, personal enjoyment that it is criminalized. This is because there is no question that animals suffer, just like humans do...however, the same cannot be said to be certain (or imo even just probable) for fetuses.
Iam pro choice too its realy up to the individuals
Not really, but I think it should remain legal in my country for medical reasons. There are quite a few. I would hope that my countrywomen would have the decency to not use it as a secondhand birth control method. Then again, there are plenty of lunatics who would ruin a child, but choose abortion. Which crime is worse?
Abortion IS a method of birth control.
I realIZe that, angry Mary.
That's what I think, Lola. But then there are the insane women who get the procedure whom you know would be terrible moms and destroy the kid.
Hey, zonus, dig this: If abortion had been a popular option back in the day in the USA as it is now in Russia, my mother, my aunt, my uncle, and several friends would never have been born. You could say I am sensitive about it. You could also say that the women I know who are haunted by the ghosts of the children they terminated are sensitive about it.
Absolutely. It's not a baby, it's a fetus, which would not be able to live outside of the womb. A woman has the right to choose what happens within her own body. Period.<br />
Killing an autonomous creature is completely different. And you know it. ;)
Alright then, as soon as u KNOW you're pregnant, c-section it n see what happens
Why is what is essentially a parasite more important than it's host? A parasite is also alive and relying on it's host to live. Should we tell people with tapeworms that it has to stay where it's lodged out of the sanctity and respect for life? If the host does not want it there, she should be able to remove it without grief. Why does any person get to make decisions about what another person does with their body or how they view life? If you don't want to have an abortion, don't have one. Problem solved.
"Baby" is merely a term of endearment. The proper medical term for it would be zygote/embryo/fetus.
That's so absurd that I don't know why I'm responding.
I never said I see them as parasites, but the comparison is undeniable. A fetus is not a human yet. Not til they make it out of the birth canal. Until that defining moment, they are completely dependent on their host. I know. I carried two of them. A person should not have to go through that if they don't want to. Forcible child bearing. Now THAT'S a scary world and I'd hate to see where that leads us. There are many valuable ideals attached to womanhood, and humanity. To define yourself by your ability to bear children is a faulty way to live life and you're asking for disappointment.
I think I stated my position pretty plainly. There is no discussion if you just repeat yourself. Good day to you.
Breathing? What's it breathing?
