I think you are looking for drama.

I do not think that most abortions are forced. I think if you are old enough to get pregnant you are old enough to make your own choice.

I think that it is a private matter, and many pro-life campaigns are just trying to scare woman and make many feel horrible about their choices.

I think that if anyone bans abortion, they will throw women rights back into the 60's, with kitchen-table abortions.

I think that it is a woman's right to choose.

I just have to say that no one can MAKE you think, say, or DO anything. Its a personal choice to go through with it and they need to stop blaming someone else for THEIR decision!

I was going to say the same thing.  You can't "force" someone to do something they don't want to do.  That's bull.

I wasn't looking for drama per say and yes you have a right to your opinion I never stated mine. Don't you think there might be a select few especially the young girls that may have been cohered?

so an 8 year old who gets pregnant can make the choice for themselves, i really dont think so..

Since it is her body, then yes she should have the choice.

I don't see how.  I don't think any doctor that wants to keep their license would strap a child down and perform a D&C with the child screaming no.  ANY child (regardless of age) should have a say.  Even if I was anti-abortion, I would think that a very young child carrying a pregnancy to term could be fatal to the child.

I do agree with you but what about the part where they were talking about proper counseling or the really young girls who are easily coerce lets say by parents.
