How do you feel about aborting an ectopic pregnancies, or when the baby has a fatal painful disease to die soon after birth, or the pregnancies where the babies are only a spinal cord and brain or missing some important organ like part of heart or brain

I personally, couldn't abort ever. I had an ectopic pregnancy, which I was told was threatening to my own life. I did a lot of praying, I told DH if I went full term and it was between the two lives please choose the baby. I ended up having a miscarriage and was devastated, it still hurts my heart to think about.

I say I'm pro-life, but I suppose that is just for myself. I think it's sad and I don't understand women who could kill their baby/terminate pregnancy. There is no way to 100% know for sure how a child we be until they are born. However I do my best not to judge them, regardless of their reason to abort.

So to answer tour question, for myself I could never abort for any reason. For others, while I can't understand it, that is their body and I don't judge.

I am fine with an eptotic pregnancy. I believe that the only reason abortion is okay is when the life of the mother is in danger. Now, if you are past 24 weeks, I believe the baby should be born and given a chance. 

As for abortion as a solution for disabilities, I do not agree with that.

An ectopic pregnancy is not the same thing as a normal, routine pregnancy.

The only option IS to remove the fetus or it can mean death of the woman.

Pro choice, but giving a bump.

Honestly, while I do not understand those willing to risk their lives for a pregnancy and it is not something I'd ever do, it is their choice to make and there is no real right choice in such a situation.  The "right" choice is whatever the woman (and family) feel is best.

Ectopic pregnancies are a no-brainer. The baby can't survive there and it puts the mother in danger. The only course of action is an abortion. Disabilities are no reason to abort though. Those you mention are heartbreaking no doubt, but still no reason to kill the child.
