  • Yes, purely to prevent women dying in backstreet abortions. However I think there should be an effort made by doctors to dissuade them strongly from abortion. I'm not pro-abortion in any situation really but I understand some women feel the need to get one and they will try it no matter what so their lives need to be protected too.

  • Legal or illegal, it doesn't matter. Women are going to get them regardless, and if not, they will perform them themselves, which is far more dangerous than getting one medically done.

  • yes I do. Women who want one WILL FIND A WAY and I think we need to have safe places for them to go if that is the only choice they feel they have.

  • I think it should be unless the mothers life is in danger.

  • Yes it should be legal. The decision should be up to the one pregnant, not the government.

  • Safe, legal and rare

  • Yes.

  • No. Having it done in "clinics" doesn't take the health risks away unfortunatley.

    Answer by Renee3K at 9:38 PM on Jan. 23, 2011

  • Yes. Having a child or not having a child should be a personal decision. If that is something that someone wants to live with, that is their life...we can't complain about people having babies they can't support and living off welfare and then say that they can't have the right to get an abortion to avoid doing so...
