  • I think that to have an abortion or not is a very personal decision. I do believe that a woman does have the right to choose especially under certain circumstances (like rape, incest, baby not developing properly, mother's health in danger...).

  • I think the women struggling to decide whether or not to have one should have a few counseling sessions before they make their decision. For the most part I feel it perpetuates domestic abuse, physical and sexual abuse and the overall de-progression of women. I cannot imagine how hard it would be to have children after an abortion (mentally).

    That being said, I fear that if they were unavailable some women would seek them regardless with even greater tragic results to both mother and child. Late term abortions ate fing crazy in my book. I would never have one and feel proud to say that I have helped a couple of women decide against an abortion. For the most part I think having one is based out of selfishness or fear.

  • I have volunteered at a crisis pregnancy center in our community for years. I believe it can have severe consequences on a woman's body and mind. I don't judge anyone who has had one, but I feel personally convicted that abortion is wrong

  • I've never had one, and although I don't believe abortion should be used as birth control I've known women who have had them and I respect the choice that they made for the reasons they made them.

  • a woman has a right to choose to continue a pregnancy or not. i had one and i will never do that again. but i would love to educate those that are thinking about it because its not just physical its psychological that alot of times it messes you up. so i think alot of women do not know about the physchological after effects.

  • I think it is a very personal decision. I don't think it should be used for birth control by any means. I hope people are not too rough when answering.

  • I would not have one. I also would not judge some one for having one. Every one has choices.

  • I have never had one but I cannot judge a woman for making such a hard decision.
