It does sound selfish but what I don't understand is that you say you wouldn't be able to give your baby up after seeing it in front of you. But don't you think if you had decided to have the baby, you would see it.in front of you and be glad you didn't kill it? You would love it no matter what was wrong and would do everything you could for.it.

I think abortion shouldn't have anything to do with anybody except the mother, and in some but not all cases, the father of the baby. Who are we to say it is or isn't okay? However, there are a few cases I would not be supportive of an abortion. The first is if the mother has a stable enough relationship, no health issues that could harm her OR the baby, and is financially supported. If they were just being stupid and don't want a baby at the time, it just sounds kind of selfish. Adoption is a good choice, because many mothers wish they could be in that position. The second reason would be everything I said about the first reason, but if you are not financially supported. If you can't afford a baby you can go to Planned Parenthood or some kind of Mother's Home (I forget exactly what the place is called), but you can choose who adopts your child, with all expenses (hospital bills and the like) paid off by them. I'm not saying people in these situations should NEVER get abortions, that's their choice and not mine, but if I were in either situation (or any situation except for fatal health risks) I would NOT get an abortion and think it would be better if they didn't either.

There is always the chance that the doctors are wrong. I've heard multiple stories where the mother was told her child would be deformed, etc and they turned out perfectly healthy. And if the child is born with problems and the parents don't want it that badly, they can give it up for adoption. But many parents of children with say downs syndrome will say they wouldn't go back and change it if they could. That is still a person. Why is it our decision to murder that child?

Yes. And I am talking specifically about rape cases. If a woman willingly has **** and gets pregnant, then I do not think that warrants an abortion. She knew the risks and did it anyone.

But trying to make a woman who became pregnant because of rape continue to be pregnant is further victimizing the victim.

How is the right not to be pregnant more important than a person's right to life?

Removing the embryo ends the pregnancy. It doesn't prevent it from taking place.

I disagree. Sometimes people are careful, and something happens and the woman still gets pregnant.
Ok, sometimes people are just being stupid. Not using protection. But I really don't think that the baby benefits from having a mother that can't handle it. Adoption? My friend's Dad was adopted, and she said it didn't end well. Another friend of mine was adopted...
He has depression, and being given up by his real parents doesn't help it. At all.
Plus there's the matter of forcing a woman to go through pregnancy.
Yes, people need to be more careful, but I feel like this thought process is sort of like a punishment thing. If I had been unwanted, I would feel horrible to find out the only reason I was kept was because "That's what my mom gets for not being careful!"
And if we have to go with a punishment idea, getting an abortion is bad enough I'm sure.

So you think it's a better idea to end the babies life than risk him or her having some difficulties like everyone else does?

If abortion isn't acceptable, then **** without the intent of reproducing shouldn't be acceptable. Abortion is a form of birth control. Why should there be a difference between removing an embryo and preventing gametes from becoming an embryo? It all achieves the same end result, just at a different stage in the game.

Birth control prevents conception. It prevents creation of life. Abortion ends a life. There is a huge difference. However I dont think either one is right

Just because the doctors think the fetus is damaged or that the woman might miscarry is not an excuse. They very well might be wrong.

I think the only times it is a reasonable way to terminate the pregnancy in such a way is if the mother's life is at risk, or if the mother was raped. And I will explain why on the last part.

A woman has the right to not be pregnant. No one can force her to get pregnant and then continue to be pregnant against her will. That is violating her rights. Yes, yes, sure, it's violating the rights of the fetus. But sometimes you have to decide whose rights are more important; the person who already has an established life, or a clump of cells.

That being said, I do not believe they should change the law to where it is illegal to have an abortion except in the case of a life threatening situation, or rape. If abortions due to rape were legal and abortion due to just wanting to not be pregnant were not, then I believe there would a major increase in the amount of people claiming to be raped when they actually were not. Yes, some of them would be telling the truth, but not all of them.

So the woman's right not to be pregnant is more important than the child's right to live? I don't feel a child should ever be aborted unless absolutely necessary to save the mother.

I feel like the girls who mind guys seeing them in a bra are the girls who are...well for lack of a better phrase, protecting their virtue. And I think most guys just aren't as concerned with girls seeing anything I guess? And my bra is also more revealing than my bikini.

It's not about the fact that they cover (basically) the same area, it's that bathing suits are meant to be seen and bras aren't. They're an undergarment.

I think this kind of misconstrues the meaning of jealousy. I could be wrong, but I was taught that jealousy meant wanting what someone else has and believing that they don't deserve it and you do. So in that case, resentment is already present.
