I have always been pro choice. A mother has the right to choose what's best for her and her child. We can't dictate what's moral or immoral because we're not in that situation.

ometimes individuals commit an error, however that misstep ought not have the capacity to demolish someones live particularly on the off chance that they have a brilliant future in front of them. For instance, if a youngster gets pregnant, I trust she ought to get a premature birth.

I don't think so. If you did something then you need to stand by that. Killing a life doesn't make things right. You need to be mature and suffer the consequences of your actions.

True. We don't know why she got herself in that situation so it's hard to judge. We can't be holier than thou and say what's the right thing to do.

Abortions should most definitely be legal. First off, a man should not be able to decide whether it should be or not, as they are not the ones getting the abortion. And second, if you don't like abortion due to religion, that's what separation of church and state is for. And third, if you're a woman and don't agree with it, simply do not get an abortion then.

It should. Women don't need to be ashamed for it. It is their choice and they have their reasons. They don't need to explain everything to people. It's their life so people should mind their own business.

The abortion argument is a super simple one, if is a human you can't kill it. If it's not then you can do whatever you want with it. Judging that a fetus meets the seven characteristics f living things and it has 100% human DNA, then it is a human and you don't get to kill other humans. The other problem with abortions is that they are rarely done for rape, incest or a threat to a mothers life. Those three only make up 2% of all abortions, 98% of them are for convenience and 60% of women who get abortions have already had a kid.

I think abortion should be legal because if it isn't then there are just going to be more unsafe abortions. But there should be limits on who can get abortions. For example, you should be able to get one if having the baby is going to threaten your life, but you shouldn't get an abortion if you just simply do not want a baby

Without a doubt. If it is legalised, it will be safer for the women to undergo the procedure. For their dignity, health, and their lives.

Legalizing abortion does have benefits. Some pregnant women develop complications and need to go though abortion. It would be safer for them than going through with the pregnancy.

It should be legal. Women don't need to feel ashamed for getting an abortion. People do not need to judge them as well. They make their own choices. They should know what's best since it's their well being.

I don't think abortion should be legalized. It's like legalizing killing a human life. If they don't want the child, they can always put it up for adoption.

I don't think so. People should be responsible for their actions. They need to take abortion seriously. If abortion is legal then people would think it's okay to do it and just be reckless.

I agree. People should know that their actions have consequences and they need to live with that. They cannot kill a human life because they made a mistake.

Most adversaries of premature birth concur that fetus removal for the mother's wellbeing can be ethically worthy if there is a genuine danger of genuine harm to the mother.

If there is a threat to the mother's life then I think that is acceptable. It's a case to case basis. If a healthy mother just wants to ditch the pregnancy then that's just wrong.

I don't think so. No matter how you look at it, it's killing a life. I may not know their personal reasons for getting abortion but if there are other options then I hope they turn to that. It doesn't have to end with abortion.

I don't agree with abortion. There are other ways if you don't want the baby. You can always give it up for adoption. That way you don't kill a life and you gave the child a better future with someone else.

True. Everyone deserves to live. Adoption is a good way if someone has problems with having a kid. It's the most responsible way to ensure the kid gets a good life.

The legalisation of abortion has nothing to do with whether or not you happen to agree with abortion, it has to do with the impact that the policy will have on the lives of the public. Now from that perspective legalising abortion seems to me to be of paramount importance - whether or not it is legal, people will still get it, what you are doing by introducing a safe, clean place where they may be performed is showing the public that you place their well-being in front of your own biased opinion. Also, Pro-Life is Anti-women and an inherently fascistic belief.
