  • Most of the women that I know yes it is. They are told by their families, doctors, father of the baby abort or X will happen. Most don't know or are not told that there are other options. They are desperate.

  • It depends on who you are asking and at which time you ask. IMO, for some it is an act of desperation. If you have never been unplanned and unwantingly pregnant you probably wouldn't understand. Especially to those that are using forms of birth control to prevent pregnancy and yet they still end up pregnant. It's easy for others to judge, but that's not our jobs.

  • No it's an act of murdering a helpless victim who didn't ask to be conceived. There's no such thing as an "unplanned pregnancy". People should know that anytime they have sex, whether they use birth control or not, it could result in pregnancy. Failed birth control is no excuse for killing a baby.

  • It is NOT MURDER, FOR FUCK'S SAKE! Murder is illegal. Abortion is not. STFU.

    And OP, it depends. Each circumstance is different.

  • i personally think abortion is murder. this is just my opinion but the only way you should abort is when you 100% know that you child is not going to live past a year and will have many surgerys . then i would justify it. but only if you know your child is not going to live and be uterly miserable until the end. otherwise i think its wrong.if you cant take care of a baby keep your legs closed. or take steps to prevent pregnancy. more than one.

  • It's good that you can be so judgemental. I am sure you have all of life's secrets figured out and that you never faulter. We are human and people make bad decisions. Your judgement of them doesn't help.

  • if you dont want a child there is adoption or if you canreally do this within the first few days of life take your child to a hospital police department or fire department. they will find a good home. obortion should NEVER be allowed.

  • Anon 9:28, if you don't like abortion, don't get one. Trust me, you are NOT qualified to make that C-H-O-I-C-E for other women.
