What do you think about the abortion?
If you are a student or you are in the situation that you can't bring up your child ... do you give a birth to your child?

Till now, I thought that abortion is very sad thing and it must not exist, but I couldn't realize it.
Recently I read many articles, opinion that is written by woman who has a experience of abortion and thought about abortion seriously.
Abortion is very sad thing!! Sad
I can't imagine the wounds... Sad
BUT...
If I get pregnant now, I will decide to terminate... Crying or Very sad

The undesirable pregnant must not exsist.
OF course, we must do birth control if the pregnant does not desire.

BUT...

If you....
What do you think?
What do you do?

Heavy.

Most people probably don't want to answer a question as controversial as this. However I will go on record as saying I support a woman's right to choose.

Take care,

Corey

It's a reasonable question. Abortion is a legal medical procedure and I agree that women should be able to decide if they want to give birth or not. However, I think that abortion should be done very early in a pregnancy.

Here's another question. What right, if any, does the father of a child have in this decision?

Zen, it's not that you shouldn't ask the question. You can do that in "English" cultures.

Obie - now that is a tough question.

With religious background, of course, abortion is equal to killing. You have no rights to kill a new life. However, if every circumstances show that the woman is undesirable to give birth to a baby, abortion is a right choice. The responsibility of parents is great and tough. It includes feeding and nuturing. If the parents are not ready to take this great job, the children will suffer.
