I wouldn't mind being aborted if I hadn't lived long enough to form a single thought. Besides, I firmly believe everyone should be able to do whatever they want to themselves. Why not set a fetus on the table and ask it if it wants to live. Oh wait, it would die. Why? Because it's not a person, and it's existence depends solely on its mother. Thus, she gets the right to do whatever she wants with it.

Imagine how different everybody's life would be with out you. The life of man touches so the lives of so many others. My mom got pregnant with me less than one month after she had just given birth. People kept telling here to abort because "I was unplanned" and my family had just moved out of a tiny apartment/attic we lived in. I know you can't see me, but look where I am today.

Ever heard of post abortion depression? Mothers miss their kids, because they know they actually were kids, not cells

@chickensarecool01 Ever heard of post abortion depression? Mothers miss their kids, because they know they actually were kids, not cells

Don't people consider that adoption might be worse as far as missing the child goes? With abortion, it's only there for a short amount of time, then aborted before actually being something. With adoption, she has to carry it the full 9 months, have THAT much more time to grow attached to it, and give birth to it. Then it's taken away from the mother.

Not at all. A huge part, almost the whole of post abortion depression is extreme guilt for killing your child. When you give it up for abortion, you will undoubtedly miss the child, but you'll be satisfied onstead of guilty. You will live your whole life knowing you gave your child a good life, not live in depression because you feel like you killed your own kid.

When you're an infant, your existence depends on your mother as well, so does the mother have the right to do whatever she wants with the child? A child, born or not, is NOT part of the mother's body. He or she is a separate, living person, that happens to be growing inside of his or her mother. He has different DNA, his own heart, brain, and body. How is that part of the mother? What makes killing a baby seconds before he or she is born different from killing him/her right after she's born?

I don't think it's possible for a baby to be aborted seconds before it is born, because I'm sure that would just make it a premature baby. Abortions take place when the baby is an embryo, a simple collection of cells. It has no brain, heart, or any other organs. It's just a bunch of cells.

I'd say it's the fact that a child seconds before birth has functioning organs, and would be able to survive outside the womb. A fetus has no fully developed organs, and relys completely on the mother's already existing organs. If it weren't for the connection of the umbilical cord, the fetus would not have anyway to survive at all. It can't breathe, it can't eat, it can't think, etc.

@Mike_Hawk I'd say it's the fact that a child seconds before birth has functioning organs, and would be able to survive...

But dependence doesn't equal non-personage. Infants are totally dependent (though it doesn't have to be on the mother), but it's illegal to kill them. The fetus is NOT part of the mother, he/she is simply EXTREMELY dependent on the mother. Many late-term abortions are carried out, and many babies have survived being born severely prematurely, but it would be illegal to kill them, despite the fact that they aren't fully developed and are completely dependent on machinery/doctors.

You support the choice, and all outcomes of that choice, no? If you only support the choice and limit it, then you don't support choice. Therefore, you support both abortion and not. Thereby promoting murder. If you cannot see this, I'm sorry, but don't try to defend your irrationality.

I am neither being murdered nor pregnant, and I actually find it somewhat difficult to be pro-life or pro-choice.

I hate when teenagers get abortions and say "i wasn't ready", and crap. I mean i know my comment isn't going to change much but if you got pregnant unplanned and you're over 18 fine, but if you're like 16 and you got pregnant unplanned why the hell were you even having sex? Plus i hate that media makes teenagers think it's okay to get pregnant and it'll make you money (aka 16 and Pregnant, and Teen Moms) teens should know that they shouldn't, 'cause they can't take care of the kid and it's no one's fault but their own, not their parents, not the condoms, it's their problem not anyone else's or anyone they try to get sympathy from. the solution is close your damn legs. And if you do get pregnant, put the kid before yourself if you decide to keep it, make sure they get everything they need, including love, don't neglect them.

People that debate about abortion so often seem to be lacking in intelligent arguments, and over the internet? This isn't going to accomplish anything.

Regardless, statistics show that the majority of women get abortions because they feel pressured into doing so, and like they have no other options.

Maybe if the media didn't hoist around abortion as the first and best option for women facing an unplanned pregnancy, and people looking to provide alternatives weren't labeled as evildoers and vultures, the CHOICE that everyone seems to support, could actually be a "choice."

After being raped having a constant reminder on you when all you want to do is forget would be terrible. And for all of you who call those women "selfish" for aborting a child of rape you honestly disgust me and make me lose faith in humanity.
Imagine if the worst thing of your life happened and you just wanted to forget and you don't even have the CHOICE to decide to abort the outcome of the rape. It would be terrible.

War is necessary only in defense. Why do people get the impression that all Republicans want to do is expand our borders?

Death Penalty: Usually death is more humane than shoving some person in a jail for 40+ years and then if they are lucky enough to get out, they are homeless. You can't have mass murderers walking the street and there is only so much you can do to protect a person's sanity.

Abortion: Imagine if you aborted the next Einstein or the next Barack Obama. Death penalty involves someone making a choice in their life and failing. Abortion involves a failed decision that the person who made the decision doesn't have to suffer the consequences of.

Don't get the idea that Republicans support excess killing.

Your point about abortion is irrelevant. What if Einstein's parents decided not to have sex the night he would have been conceived? The fact that a potential child could be a prodigy prodigy doesn't matter, because they could also be a psychopathic murderer. What caliber of person an egg and sperm come together to make is not relevant to the issue of abortion.

It's probably extremely difficult for both decisions in an unplanned pregnancy.

The zygote(it is not a baby yet, just a ball of cells) can not think or feel yet when the abortion happens. Anyways, it would go through more pain if it had to grow up with a mother who is not ready to be a mother or with out a mother at all. Not that all mothers of unexpected babies are bad, just to clarify. Also, there is a huge overpopulation of humans on our planet and our population is expected to double in around 50 years. and there are already tons of children in need of homes.

Make something good come it. Even if you are raped, wouldn't you rather know that you gave life to a miracle and blessed a couple with that child and someone to love, and blessed your child with loving parents? It's that or the guilt of knowing you murdered and innocent baby. You'd be adding even more horror to a horrible situation.

I am pretty sure I am aware of how adoption works, considering my parents are certified foster parents in the US and numerous adoption agencies told us not to even bother to apply for an adoption in the US because there are so many foster families on a waiting list for a baby that the average wait is at least five years to be placed with a child- including drug babies and special needs babies. If the child is not adopted, it is in the foster care system because parental rights have not been severed yet. In addition, even if after a few days the birth mother decides she DOES want to keep the baby, all of her living expenses and health care during pregnancy and several months afterward are payed for by the adoptive family. After going through an international adoption, and having MANY close friends who are foster/adopt families or foster families who have been through it, I have a hard time seeing where you're coming from saying they are "false" facts.

For myself and what I will do with my life, I am pro-life, except in the case of rape or a disease that will kill me and/or my baby.

Besides, women would just find illegal and dangerous ways to do it if they were really determined, leading to even more deaths.
