  • I am pro-choice and I feel that 1 is too many. IMO, there is absolutely no excuse for 2 (or more) ever...unless by some horrible stroke of luck a young girl was raped twice and got pregnant both times. Abortion should be a very very last resort in only horrific situations.

  • One. If you had one to begin with why would you make the same mistake and end up having another one?

  • Hmmm... well, I don't think that any should be "acceptable"... I'd imagine it's rather traumatic and sad for a mother to have to do that, plus the recovery time and the risks to the procedure. I understand when a woman's birth control method fails and she gets one, but after that I would probably expect her to be more careful, use multiple forms of birth control, or even abstain, just because she can't possibly WANT to continue to do that. It's expensive and sad.

    In the end it's the woman's choice, and only she can decide how many are unacceptable to her. I had one to save my life (ectopic pregnancy) and that was enough for me.

  • A woman shouldn't have to have any abortions. There are plenty of birth control options. However none are 100%.

    From what I could find there is not a medical limit on the number of abortions a woman can have.
