  • Stay out of people's business. THat's my opinion. If it were my decision I'd want other people to stay out of it too.

  • I have never been in the position that I would need to consider one so it would be easy for me to say that I would never have one and no one else should either. But knowing that, I think that people should have a choice. I have never found myself pregnant as a result of a rape. I have never found myself struggling to leave my abusive husband and found myself pregnant. I have never been in any of these positions so I don't think that I have the right to say what any of these women should do in their situation.

  • I think it's really, really tragic that so many women are becoming pregnant when they don't want to be.

  • My personal view is people need to do what is right for them, although I don't approve of it for myself I would not judge anyone who does.

  • i believe its the women's choice! you shouldn't be forced to raise a child if you financially or emotionally cant. And yes, I know people should not go around making babies when the cant raise one, but you know what women still will! So instead of "not" raising a child, I think nothing is wrong with abortion!

  • I was pro-choice, my co-worker just had one. I am starting to not want to be pro-choice. I feel awful for her baby.

  • I am against abortion but I do think that it needs to be around for certain reasons, it should never ever be used as a form of birth control though.

  • Dr. Donna...I agree, but knowing what leads to it, you would THINK they would think twice before having sex.

    Chunky Dynamic--I've never been in the situation, but I think every child is here for a reason. I am not for abortion, I feel there is always adoption and always SOMEONE who would want to love that child.

  • Abortion is murder in my eyes. You can always choose adoption there is people who cannot have children that want to adopt. That is my opinion.
