I will run a number of situations in which, in order of which it would be least to most moral to have an abortion, and explain my opinion based on facts and logic.
A woman who is happily married to a man wants to abort a child that is the husband's. Of course, if she is healthy and able to support this baby, which she should be if she is engaging in intercourse with her husband, an abortion would be ridiculous, cold blooded, murder. So no.If you really really don't want the baby, get it adopted.

A woman is financially stable and wants to abort a child with her boyfriend because she doesn't want it. This would be cruelly immoral, as she is using convenience as an excuse to kill someone. Just because you don't want the baby, someone else will. Adoption, or keep the baby, if you can/want to.

A woman does not have the money to support a baby, and wants an abortion. This woman has ruined her life, probably because of her own actions, but the unborn child should not suffer for her mistakes. Still, adoption.

A woman finds out her son/daughter may be autistic/disfigured. To save him/her the pain, she wants to get an abortion. Not only is there any surefire way to tell that the baby will DEFINITELY be handicapped mentally or physically, but many autistic and defected children can live normal lives. Let him/her live, and if you really don't want the child, let it be adopted.

A woman is raped and a baby is conceived. The woman wants to abort. Although the woman in no way deserved either to be raped or the baby, it should not be killed for the rapist's actions. Despite controversy, still, get the baby adopted.

There is 100% certainty that both the baby and the mother will die if the pregnancy continues. This is THE ONLY situation where an abortion is OK. The act is not killing a baby, but saving the mother's life in a situation where the baby will die. If only one or the other will die, or if there is a chance instead of certainty of the death of mother and child, then an abortion is not OK.





To recap, the ONLY situation I feel an abortion is OK is if BOTH the mother and child WILL CERTAINLY die if the pregnancy continues.

Anyways as i read before some people said to let Religious Women Suffer if they want,Its not Suffering and unlike unreligious Women who hate Children and want to continue their life full of alchohol,Other Bad things Etc. Anyways Abortion isnt ok for me as i find life unfulfilled without having Joy in your life.

So a woman shouldn't have a say over her reproductive rights unless the situation may end with her dying?

Let him/her live, and if you really don't want the child, let it be adopted.


The problem with this, I feel, is that when a disfigured or autistic child is put up for adoption, most of the time, they never get adopted.

I mean, picture this. A childless couple (who for reasons unclear either can not procreate a child themselves or refuse to) come to an adoption center to adopt a child. Now, this is not as simple like picking a pet out of a pet store. They acknowledge that the child will not be of their blood, but nevertheless, they will raise it with love and care and with the best of their ability. Most importantly, they'd want that child to have a better life than they had.

Now, with all this in mind, would the childless couple rather choose a society-normal kid with average looks, intelligence, etc and fits the mold of what a regular child is, or would they place hardship on themselves with the autistic/genetically defective kid that they know is someone else's child and they know that he will never live a normal life?

That's not even mentioning the problem that if EVERYONE (and this is a BIG if) put up a child for adoption, there would undoubtedly be more children than demand. Part of the joys of raising a child is knowing it's yours, after all, and not many people will waltz into an adoption center and take a child without first thinking it thoroughly. If this happens, there will definitely be a shortage of foster homes soon enough. And the kid will have to endure the emotional burden of being moved around foster homes and knowing that his parent had abandoned them.

Plus, it's harder to adopt somebody as they grow older. This even leaves some children without parents until they enter legal adulthood.

Just think about it: What if your mother decided that she did want you. Would you have supported it then? (not the previous user, everyone in general who thinks that it is ok).

Whoa!
Wait a minute.
Maybe I wasn't clear enough, but I my last message I was speaking to the monsters that think it is ok, telling them that they may have been aborted. So I don't see why they would support it, unless they wish they hadn't been born.

I hate the even the idea of abortion. Who kills an unborn child? I guess many people are irreclaimably evil.

If you guys support abortion, then you should be dead yourself. Your mother should've supported it and done it to you. You wouldn't mind though, right? Its not like the baby has his or her say in it.
