Is abortion about women’s right or is it about the right to life?


I get so mixed up in that debate, it would seem that the right to life outweighs any right of personal choice, but many see it much different. What is your opinion about abortion? What supersedes what? Do men have a right to a choice or are women the only ones involved?

    Great reply. I may not believe in all abortions, but i sure will defend the woman's right to make her own choice. All others should mind their own dam business.

    Yes. It’s complicated. My only problem is when either side decides to simply deny the rarity of it. I don’t agree with abortion when a choice a person willingly made resulted in pregnancy. Rape, incest and such things are a matter of its own.

    if one views it as taking a life unjustly (basically murder) should they keep their noses out of it? the thing with the argument of the child possibly growing up in an uncaring society is we dont know that. abortion is 100% no chance of life.

    are you saying then, if youre still inside the mother, your not a subject or a human? how does the location make a difference? why do you oppose it for your family? why is the child not given the opportunity to make choices? would they choose to die?

    what if parents decide after the baby is a moth old, that they just can handle it and its too much money and too hard to raise a child. should they then be allowed to get rid of it?

    Bravo Moseph - keep telling the truth, few here do but we are in the majority. As Ronald Reagan put it, 'I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.'.

    I agree 100%. I think people who call it "pro-chioce" are sugar coating what it should really be called, killing a baby.

    not so.selfishness & $$ are not the major motivations.Only the individual knows their own heart. We have no right to judge others on a moral basis.

    spoken like a true conservative religious control advocate. (It's either MY way or the highway) Neither P.O.V. is totally correct, & differences must B respected, not derided. Quoting Ur scripture is a waste of time, and superfluous 2 logical deb

    I've never met anyone who is pro-abortion. But up to the point that it can live outside the woman's body it is part of her. Murder is all about intent. If the mother intends to bring the child to term then it is murder for another to kill it.
