If so, do you defend a woman's right to abort her baby? Does it seem ironic that one is punishable by law and the other is legal?

Once again comparing apples and oranges in hopes of getting people riled up.

they may not be endangered but are protected because they are our nation's bird, a symbol of freedom and strength so yes i would be upset...but i like birds more than ppl anyhow, they never kill or judge each other

I agree with PP, apples and oranges. We all believe what we believe. One point that people forget about is that unless you have been in a situation that may warrant an abortion it is easy to say one thing or another. As women we should respect each others right to choose, rather you personally agree with it or not, its not your body or your choice.. As for the nest situation, no comparison.

I'm sorry Shaneagle777, the op asked our opinion as to whether or not we thought it was ironic. I just think this comparison is not a good one. I'm sorry we don't agree on the subject but honestly we probably won't change each others opinions. You make a good point, a fetus can't speak for itself anymore than an eagle can, but you also have to take the reproduction process into account. Humans have sex for pleasure most of the time, animals only have sex to reproduce. I have many friends who have chosen to have abortions and I think at the time that was most likely the best decision for them. An animal won't reproduce until it is ready both physically and mentally, unfortunately humans aren't the same. If someone is not ready for a child I don't think it's right for us to decide whether or not they should have to have that child.
