And why is their mode of contraception your business? Is it a big deal if they used condoms, BC pills or abortion? It's their body and not ours.

By Idea, I mean you requiring them to go through contractions.

Actually, here in America. The % of molest victims needing abortions is less than 0.01% of total abortions each year. The case is still considered rare.

who knows, maybe you could survey the women looking for an abortion. Your idea can work in a theocracy but civilized nations have moved beyond that.

If they want an abortion, go ahead. It doesn't affect you and I

Then what is the difference between a foetus and a child? To raise a tenuous distinction between the unique, genetically distinct entity that commences life soon after conception, and the resulting product about nine months after seems to me an attempt to utilize semantics as a basis for rendering abortion more palatable: describing a snake as 'a long thing' so that it can be eaten. Women dont say they are pregnant with a 'foetus' irrespective of how many weeks it is; they always say they are pregnant with a chilld.

However, I'm not among few ardent antiabortionists stridently opposed to the practise under any circumstance. The few instances where I feel it may be justifiable and therefore warranting an enabling law should be limited to cases of molest,Inbreeding and and situations where the child poses a serious risk to the life of the moher. In the case of the latter, I certainly don't believe the right to life of the unborn child should take precedence over that of the mother.

Nonetheless this:

. . .gives the impression that we are talking about a piece of jewelery, which she if free is discard at will should its specification fail to meet her desire. That will not only be most unfair to the child, but such action would be sending a dangerous signal regarding the sanctity of human life.  We are talking a unique entity, the product of two human beings, and the future of three (the child, the father and her); it would therefore be unfair to say the final say rests with her.

Abortion should be legal, but the choice shouldn't be at the sole discretion of the mother.

@ topic,

i know a friend who is very sad till this day because of a statement her mum was made, "i should have aborted you while you were still in my womb". so if this friend does anything wrong, intentional or not, she hears this,

so back to the point, it is a mean thing to do, no matter what angle u try looking at it, i believe human being should have a choice

many kids would be here if not for condoms and BC pills.   so what are you getting at? 

you mad?

You definitely are one unbiased score keeper

what about a woman who becomes pregnant through molest or BC pills that fail?  should she bear the consequences too?

The ability for planned parenthood programs to provide quality services without obstruction.

yes because we somehow know what the foetus wants and the foetus is independent of it's carrier. Shouldn't a sperm have control over it's or her prospects?

that's really none of our business. That's their own wahala and not that of the government

it's the woman carrying the baby. her physical and mental health is the one at risk here. I can only plead with her to carry the baby but the DECISION is hers.

Rather than ask if abortion should be legalised, I think we should ask 'would I be here if my mother had aborted me?'

You had no say in your coming to this world, yet your parents decided to have you, same chance should be given to every yet unborn child. If the child gets here and doesn't like it here, then he/she could decide to leave. Let it be the child's choice not yours.

what exactly is abortion?

At what stage can the foetus be described as person, at birth or at conception?

what exactly is legalization of abortion expected to achieve?

Abortion should be legalised.

Why should a woman be forced to carry a baby she does not want or probably would not take care of and love.

The decision to carry a pregnancy to term should rest on the person doing it not on someone else. Who does not know the discomfort the carrier is going through.

A woman Molested by robbers should be made to carry the pregancy and give birth to a child to remind her of her ordeal right?

ABORT IT

No but should be allowed in cases where the mother's life is in mortal danger.

At this rate, murder of slow children would soon be legalised.

Libruls are at work again.

What's ethical and what's not is another endless issue on it's own. We find justification for abortion in instances of molest, or a mother's life being in danger. It should not be for selfish reasons like it's my own body let me do as I please. I don't find anything ethical with such reasoning.

You men would land in trouble with this kind of statement someday. Are you saying the man should have no say in a matter he had a hand in?

In a situation where a married man wishes for a child but the wife chooses to abort just because she doesn't want it, what argument would he come up with if it the choice of having the child or not lies on only the mother becomes law? (That is if it's not already law in the US?

The mother in this case would only act out of self defense. Something will be killed in the process, wouldn't it? So murder has been committed!

I personally don't support abortion but Nigeria is a very good example to show you that abortion should be legalized.

Abortion is illegal in Nigeria, yet people can abort pregnancies faster than they can get a Nigerian Passport.

There are thousands of quacks who keep killing our sisters and daughters due to their illegal abortion procedures.

If it is legalized, these girls can go to a Doctor (without the need for secrecy) and get professional services.

I think the right to abort is up to the woman. Afterall she's the one who gets to carry the baby for 24,105,600 seconds.

Obviously in an ideal world the answer would be no but as much as I don’t agree with abortion. It is the woman’s choice to have an abortion, no one else

If abortion is not made legal, some will do it the illegal way which is dangerous and might not only kill the fetus but also the woman.

But murder would be considered ethical in this case. There is a reason i asked for horus's opinion on the death penalty.

The prospects of the mother takes precedent over the prospects of the child.

This abortion issue again. *sigh*

What makes murder wrong? You would agree with me that murder disrupts an individual's future prospects, that's why people feel bad when it's commited. That can be said for the zygote (or whatever stage of development the unborn child is) when aborted. Abortion disrupts the unborn child's future prospects.

However we make justification for murder in instances of self defense or war, but that doesn't take away the fact murder is being committed in both scenarios. So abortion is murder, period.

how is the child alive at the point of the abortion??

do you agree with the death penalty?

abortion is fine with me, i rather a woman get an abortion than give birth to a kid she can't take care of.

No, abortion should not be legalised. Abortion is murder. You should know that at the time you get the abortion the child is alive, that  classify it as murder.
