I think I would agree with this as soon as the fetus heart starts beating, abortion shouldnt be an option

Yes, abortion shouldn't be an option, everyone needs to be responsible in not getting pregnant.

For me, I'd rather have abortion as an option than having a baby when im not financially able, and emotionally ready because that's just going to be bad for the child

No. Abortion should very much be an option. Yes, I agree, that one should give their best attempts in not getting pregnant, if they do not want to have a baby. However, accidents happen. Rape happens. As well as a certain series of events that may lead to becoming pregnant, although it wasn't originally planned.

A woman should have the right over her own body and the authority to decide for herself whether or not she would like to have the baby or not. At the end of the day, society is going to expect her to raise the child anyway, therefore, if she does not feel like she can,due to any reason or circumstance, or if she simply does not want to. It is ultimately her choice as well as the father's, if he is still around at this point.

Due to the fact that these factors, have, and always will influence a mother when deciding to be a mother or not, abortions will still happen illegally, secretively, and affordably for those who do not have the choice. Whether the fetus is considered human or not is irrelevant. A woman should always have the choice.

Sometimes I do see the immoral and unethical implications of 'playing God' and deciding the fate of an unborn child. Which in no way, shape, or form implies that I am against abortion, as I am very much the poster child for Pro Abortion. Yet, at the end of the day, it is the mother's, or parent's, decision as to where 'life' begins and if they can, or want to raise and support this life as their child. There should not be a counter argument to this. The one that would be bearing and raising the child should have every right as to decide whether or not they should or would like to do exactly that, bear and raise the child. Regardless.

Absolutely not. The idea of preserving, and giving an opportunity to an innocent life is great in theory. Yet we don't get to decide when 'life begins' or when a fetus becomes anything more than a lump of cells, and there are many other factors to consider. What if the mother didn't know that she was pregnant before this 'cut off period', was unsure of what her decision would be, or simply could not afford it. Banning abortion is what leads to back door, or self inflicted action, which is incredibly dangerous, degrading and can leave so much psychological damage.

Even speaking as a person who won't even have to carry the baby for 9 months or give birth, abortion should never be banned or made illegal. As Alice said, if a woman is not allowed to have an abortion in a safe and professional manner, it will just lead to really dangerous alternatives. As banning it will not change the decision to not have the child.

NO NO NO. absolutely not. pro choice all the way. there are way to many factors that could lead to unwanted pregnancies going over that period. the only thing that that law could achieve, is ensuring a rise in number of back-street abortions.

The Ohio assembly passed a bill on Tuesday that would boycott premature birth after the hatchling's pulse can be distinguished.

The ability and power to make such decisions, regardless of heartbeat or not, should be in the hands of no one other than those of the mother or parents. Period. The audacity to enforce laws and bans over the body of another human being is never justifiable, and no, the religion in which you follow, and what you believe, should not make you the exception and give you the right or authority to make such decisions on behalf of the body, and life of another human being. You might see it as 'murder' or"distinguishing the life of an innocent being without their consent, or ability to even make their case and 'defend themselves'". That does not matter and the your opinions, as well as those of others are inconsequential. Unless you are personally involved, you have no say.

I agree with Keegan

I know that abortion, in very few cases, is only frowned upon or banned due to the dangers that could potentially result from the procedure. However, demanding a fee from people whom , often, find themselves in a desperate situation is immoral regardless.
