    What is the psychological impetus of those who are against abortion? Why are they so

    against the liberalization of women's reproductive choice & freedom?  Does their contention against abortion reveal a level of misogyny?  Why?  Why not?

    That question is so controversial that I am not sure I want to put my autograph on it.  But basically it is the belief that has to do with your body that scares me as an individual.  Society makes it seem that it does nothing physically to a girl/woman.  I know it does something mentally because its documented in books and movies.  I wonder how a boy/man really feels once they know something like this has happened to them.  They act as if it wasn't their fault, or they had nothing to do with it.  I'm sure it's documented somewhere.

    No, a woman should not have a choice to terminate her child.  Have sex, then take responsibility for your actions.  We all know sex makes babies!  It is what it is.

      Rape. Incest. Men who force their wives to perform their "wifely duty", regardless of how many mouths they already have to feed. "Have sex, take responsibility" makes it sound like all women have a choice, and are at fault. Not so.

      The % of rape and incest as the reason for an abortion is very very low, yet pro abortion people make it sound as if every abortion was made for those reasons.

      Most women do have a choice, this is not a time when most women have wifely duties.

    It takes two to tango, and yet you suggest that it is totally up to the women to have the only choice. This is America, no one has absolute rights over anything.

    Roe v Wade made a morass out of the abortion issue because the SC didn't provide judicial notice for when life begins.
    In my opinion, abortions should be made at the earliest stage in pregnancy, and only be allowed in the second or third trimester in cases of emergency, or when the life of the mother is in danger.

    When a women goes full term with her pregnancy, the law is on her side to demand and get support from the father. So why isn't that reasoning applied during pregnancy?

    While it might be an advantage to the country for many of these women not to have children, there should be some morality about the reasons for an abortion.

    Pregnancy as the result of a rape would be a valid reason for an early stage abortion. The health of the mother would be another valid reason. But, to make abortion the Post Birth Control method is not a valid reason, especially in the case where the women has had previous abortions.

    The my body argument should also extend to protecting against unwanted pregnancies.

    I think once you have a baby, your body isn't just yours but the baby's as well, and the choice should be between you and the baby. Since the baby can't think for him/herself, the mother should do research on both sides.

    When the choice to become pregnant is taken away from the mother, for example, cases of rape, that's a different story. From a moral point of view, I still believe the baby deserves life, because the baby is the innocent party. But I can understand the conflict the mother would go through and why she would decide not to have the child.
