After a survey done in the Buffalo News.. a majority with 51% are pro-life. I don't see anything wrong with trying to save a baby.. what I do see wrong, is them interfering in the lives of others. I'm pro-choice, because there are times, that I believe it should be up to the mother. Ex... the baby is dying in the womb, and putting the mother at risk of death as well. There are times, medically, where it should remain legal.. so here are my questions:
If you are pro-choice, what are some of the situations you would feel, it would be okay to get an abortion, or reasons why it should remain legal? Would you put stricter laws on abortions, to cut down on those unnecessary? If so, what would they be?
If you are pro-life.. what do you, or what you do, to help prevent abortions from taking place? How would you personally help some of these pregnant women?

I am pro-choice. I am for education for all and resources available to pregnant women. However, I believe we need to keep it legal. We cannot pretend to be able to truly understand the life and situations of another person. Making it illegal will not stop abortion, just eliminate the availability to do it safely and strip us of our reproductive rights. As I've said before, the same laws that make it legal to have an abortion keep us from being forced into one if the government decided to limit population growth. These are not rights I can fathom giving up.

Pro-choice. Very simply I believe the life of someone who already exists is more important than a potential person.
If you are pro-choice, what are some of the situations you would feel, it would be okay to get an abortion, or reasons why it should remain legal? I think it is ok in any situation but should be preformed in the first trimester before a fetus is viable. It should remain legal because it is a medical issue, not a legal one & for the safety of women. Would you put stricter laws on abortions, to cut down on those unnecessary? No I would not. I think the age to have an abortion without parental consent should be 16 & there should be no waiting period.

I just have such a problem with females using abortion as birth control when they can take birth control and not have this issue. Don't give me the cost debate. Birth control pills are given out free in bulk all day, every day. I think that in the cases of incest, rape, or mom's eminent death abortion is reasonable. I don't think God meant for us to sacrifice one life for another in health issues. I also think it is ironic that pro-choicers use the "no one should tell me what to do with my body" when they are doing exactly that to the unborn who can't yet speak for themselves. They are making the decision about another person's body. Just take the damn birth control and don't have sex until you are married and ready to accept the responsibility of the consequence of the sex act. Quit using it for basal pleasure. Old fashioned, but these people don't get abortions.
