because they are stupid and think it is cool to have sex with everyone else in the school of the opposite sex.

If you had bothered to read my last post I noted the main reason and it's not from being stupid, but from being ignorant. There is a huge difference between the two. One is from not having the capacity to learn while the other is simply not being taught. In a good majority we are dealing with teenagers not learning comprehensive safe sex practices. With the abstinence only programs proven failures.

Though discerning the difference between stupid and ignorant can be difficult at times given some peoples lack of ability to listen and absorb data being given to them.

All I know about this thing is that people should have the choice whether they want to abort a baby or not. This country was founded on freedoms of choices. If a mother wants to abort a baby, then she should have that choice.

Very true. Which is why it's possible. But that still doesn't make it right.

Nowadays, there are so many types and forms of protected and safe sex, that this discussion shouldn't even be happening. But because the ignorance and stupidity of our generation, you can go to a high school and find nearly as many pregnant girls as those who aren't. I get that accidents happen, condoms sometimes break, etc. whatever the case may be. But the vast majority of those teenage girls pregnant didn't bother to use protected or safe sex. I don't believe in no sex 'til marriage. But I do believe that if you're going to have sex, at least be smart about it (if you don't want a baby of course). Everyone should. And my main point is; To those who aren't, you need to take responsibility for your actions. And an abortion isn't that.

Here's another way to think of it Jacen:

You seem to be generally right wing
With each generation born, the population becomes increasingly Liberal.
Wouldn't aborting a larger proportion be beneficial to the survival of your form of beliefs?

Sorry, but was ninja'd.

Also, a majority of teenagers' motto is YOLO. Enough said.

Though as exampled in the scenario Kasic used of the honor roll student having an abortion can be the responsible thing to do. Or like in one example I gave where someone is already a mother and can't take care of more children properly. The responsible thing here would be to receive the abortion so she can continue providing good support for the children she does have.

Yes there are cases where girls use abortion to be irresponsible and I would regard that as an abuse of the system. I've heard of one case of a girl in Texas who planned to have abortions if she got pregnant after having sex just because she didn't want to use protection. That is what I would regard as irresponsible and abusing the system. Though I can't imagine that there are that many who would do this.

What exactly do you mean when you say abusing the system? just curious.

Anyways, if you're referring to insurance, I don't think abortion should be covered by insurance in the first place, unless it's a necessary thing. For example, if the mother's life was in danger.

I think he means that they are using abortion to avoid any responsibility.

Well, too much posts to reply to, so I'll just state my opinion first.

If a woman gets pregnant, and she wants to abort, who are you to tell her otherwise? Is it your body that is being affected? Is it you who has to carry a foetus for 9 months? And if the family cannot afford or is not in the state to support this future child's life, should it be better to give it into adoption, where the chances of him or her getting adopted is very low, or should we spare him or her from an eventually miserable life?
If a woman has been *****, and she got impregnated due to ****, if she wishes to have an abortion, should we not let her do it? Should we force her to live with the darker times of her past?
Also, some people have sex responsibly, they wear condoms or use any other form of protection. But these fail, too. Should we shorten the rights of these people, who have tried their best to avoid pregnancy, to get an abortion? It is the choice of the individual, and no church or government official can take outcast her choice.

No. He means girls constantly having sex and aborting afterwards. As I said, any idea of Rhetoric?
