    Should abortion be illegal?

    How are your feelings about abortion about legality, I don't.agree but should be a choice,what do you think?

    At this point in time, I do NOT believe that abortion should be illegal -- and that is because the genie is already out the bottle.

    However, I believe that all of the people who call themselves "pro-choice" are in the same league as the whites who enslaved and slaughtered my African ancestors.

    Specifically, just as the pro-slavery movement was fueled by an arbitrary conclusion that blacks are non-human, today's "pro-choice movement" is fueled by an arbitrary conclusion that the unborn are not human beings.

    Or, just as today's "pro-choice" Americans believe that women have THE RIGHT to terminate the lives of their unborn children -- because it has been decided that the unborn are not human beings -- the pro-slavery forces of the past believed that whites had THE RIGHT to hunt down, enslave and murder the "black creatures" that they had decided were not human beings.

      that is a very good answer, and I can understand,  some situations like rape ext.. I can kinda understand but I could never do it. I think the better choice is to put adoption.

    No, it should not be legal.  Abortion is murder.

      I know some people feel strongly but I just am unsure about the legality part of it,  making it illegal would cause a lot of dangerous abortion places to become used. Maybe regular abortion clinics could do counciling before hand and would change the

    Abortion is a legal medical procedure and that decision should be solely between a woman and her healthcare provider.  Don't like abortion? Don't have one.  I wouldn't personally choose one either, but I am sure not going to tell any other woman what she should do with her own body.  I do not know her circumstances and it isn't my place.   There are too many variables that come into play for this to be a black and white issue - there are assaults, child abuse, health conditions that jeopardize the mother etc etc.  No one's business to interfere in that choice.

      I do agree it is not a black and white issue that people feel it is,and people that judge to the point of hate are doing evil work   by shooting pregnant woman as they are going into one of the clinics.

      There have been numerous court cases in which a person accused of murdering a pregnant woman was charged with committing two murders -- the murder of the woman herself and the murder of the baby she was carrying. Do you see the point I made?

      It is really confusing, to know where the line is, between murder and abortion.

      All I know is I used to be an embryo and fetus.

      yes a woman who intended to have a child whose child would have been viable should be counted as murder, for example Lacey Petersen when her husband killed her at nearing full term. Different issue

      Yes I agree it is confusing finding the line between murder-/abortion. I try not to judge I find it hard to not feel sorry for the baby and also for the woman ,because I am sure that has to be the hardest thing to do.

    It should still be the free choice of the woman to make. Therefore, no.

      word, even though I have very strong convictions concerning the issue of abortion, I do not throw any stones when a woman decides to undergo the procedure. I have too many of my own "sins" to deal with.

      that makes you a good person you can disagree but not hate others for doing things you disagree of.

    I think that abortion should be legal until a fetus has a chance of surviving outside of the womb (whether that be on their own or with the help of machines/doctors).

    Abortions would happen whether they were legal or not. Having it legal means that women have access to safe, regulated procedures instead of having to seek out unreliable and probably unsafe abortions from anyone who wants to profit from them.

    I personally know THREE women who have gotten pregnant while using birth control. Why should a woman who was taking precautions not to get pregnant be forced to have a baby they're not ready for and actively trying to avoid? What about women who are raped or abused? What about teenagers who were never taught safe sex practices? 

    I can't tell you when a fetus becomes a baby. A cluster of cells is not a baby in my opinion (and it's not an unpopular opinion). Is it when the heart starts beating? When they start developing some cognition? It's highly debated and no one has a definitive answer. Until they do, I don't think it's fair to force a woman to continue a pregnancy based on YOUR opinion of when life begins. It's her body, her choice.

    I wouldn't ever have an abortion myself, but it's not a stance I think everyone else needs to take. I can't pretend to know what anyone else's life is like and how being pregnant for 9 months/having a baby will affect them. I have no interest in pretending to know that.
