I do. Better not to have the child then to bring it into a terrible life.

WELL
Personally, I believe that it's the mother's choice. However, I don't approve of abortion always; you had sex, this was the outcome whether you intended for it to happen or not.
But, that's not saying I think abortion is bad. Say the mother was raped, or forced into to it by another means, then she has the right to. And honestly, I don't blame her. But if the child was conceived under consensual sex, she's at fault. If she didn't want a child, she should've used protection or not had sex at all.
Make sense?
There are other exceptions, but... pfft not in the mood right now.
If anyone's up for a discussion, I'm happy to talk! I love hearing other people's opinions c:
How bout you, Bienie?

"But if the child was conceived under consensual sex, she's at fault. If she didn't want a child, she should've used protection or not had sex at all." This kinda rubs me the wrong way... sex is no longer used just for reproduction. It's also a social and romantic thing. So I can't agree here. It's a person's decision to have sex and they shouldn't be blamed for that.
Also, you're only mentioning she. What about the man? It feels like you're only blaming the woman here ^^;

So let's say you deny abortion to those women because "they should've known better". You're forcing them to endure 9 months of pregnancy and finally childbirth. That's a heavy price to pay. And then they have to take care of a child they didn't want. Don't you think you're punishing the child here, too?

Ahh true :/ this is a really iffy topic, I think... a lot of people have different views and almost everyone has a different opinion to it
Whoops... sorry, I'm really tired ^^; no, I did mean they're... not she. Not all her fault D:

Hmm, I see your point. But, as I've mentioned in my previous point, if they didn't want to have a child then there're simple ways to avoid that. However, it's still up to the mother to make the final call... if she doesn't feel that she's capable, by all means she has the right to choose abortion. Personally, though, I don't feel that to be the response I've made (if I had conceived the child in question through consensual sex)

So, yeah :I interesting topic...
I really hope my opinion hasn't offended you ;n; if so, I'm sorry! These are just my thoughts...

I see. :P

Yea, but mistakes can happen, and anticonception can fail. It just happens.
It's alright if you don't want to do it yourself, it's just not alright to say others can't do it just because you wouldn't do it. :P

Well you see we woman are always blamed when it comes to child birth and sex, "She was raped because she had shorts on" "Well maybe she shouldn't of worn such revealing clothes" "Maybe she shouldn't of had sex at all if she didn't want the child" Okay so for rape, I know you said that it's the womans choice and your opinion is actually really close to mine but, we should not be slut shaming the VICTIMS key word there, the rapist is to blame here, I get that if you show some skin that you become more appealing, but I'm Bisexual and I don't go walking around and seeing girls with shorts on and go "hey.. I wonder if I'm strong enough TO RAPE HER" NO THAT IS NOT SOMETHING A GOOD OR MENTALLY RIGHT PERSON WOULD THINK. Sorry bout them Capitals. Men get raped too, and that's not good, there shouldn't be any raping done, anywheres, but when a guy gets raped he isn't left with a child to take care of.

Most rapes are done by Men, Men are typically stronger.. Women are able to rape, however.. it's not as common.

Do you really know what erks me though "OMG SHE SLEPT WITH THREE DUDES LAST YEAR WHAT A SLUT" "Heyyy heard you got laid last night, dude, pretty sweet, how was it? Think I could hit her up?" Why is this okay? Cause it isn't! And don't try and tell me this doesn't happen, cause it does, many people are to far into their fantasies that they can't realize what's going on.

Back to abortion, I agree that it is COMPLETELY the mothers choice, and I won't judge them for that, I wont, I can't, it's not my place, it's not your place, not the governments place, not even their mothers place. I personally could never abort my child, if I have to give them up to my aunt (cause heaven knows my aunt would never ever ever ever ever give up a child mine or a friends) so be it, I won't kill my child, but again this is my choice and mine alone, and no one really has a say in this, if my aunt for some reason doesn't want to have the baby then I will raise them like no one's ever been raised. I'm not saying I just will gladly give my child away, but if I can't support the child then I will eventually be forced to make that choice.

hope you don't mind my opinion, I'm kinda loud and obnoxious and stupid (haha I'm a genious what am are you talkin' bout Willis) but again it's my opinion <3

I never blamed the mother in a rape situation... I don't think D: if it came across that way, I swear that's not what I meant! Bienie pointed out that I said 'she' quite a lot, too, when I meant them (being both the mother and father in question)
I absolutely detest the excuses people make for rape... I mean "she shouldn't have been wearing revealing clothes" is just stupid... a) she can wear whatever the hell she's comfortable in, and b) she shouldn't be DRAGGED ASIDE AND FORCED INTO SEX
Ugh people these days... am I right!?

But I see c: I believe it's the mother's choice, but depending on the situation I may not necessarily approve. However I'm never going to stop someone from getting an abortion if that's what they've decided to do -- as you've said, it's not my place :/

No I don't think so <3 It's okay you're okay, mistakes happen.

If you have to carry something that's the size of a watermelon inside yourself, it really should be your choice to do so.
Or if you don't have the means to give the child a good start in life.

Exactly, it can't be good if you don't fully chose for it yourself.

a person with a uterus should have the right to decide what to do with their body. even if they were stupid about it, the child becomes the victim in the end. so pro-choice all the way
SpitfiresOnIce's avatar
SpitfiresOnIceHobbyist Digital Artist
Exactly, when people are like "she should've known better" I'm all "but... the child..."

lets punish the women for being stupid AND the poor innocent child (some women put the baby in dumpsters or in the streets cause they dont want them so)
SpitfiresOnIce's avatar
SpitfiresOnIceHobbyist Digital Artist
Yea... because it's so much better to be killed or left to die when you can fully experience it, right?

Pro-choice, completely.

Women already don't have enough rights and are we seriously trying to give a fetus more rights than a women now?
Most abortions happen before the baby even has developed a heartbeat, it's not even alive, most of the time, when it gets removed.
Also, and this should be the deal breaker no matter what- it should be a women's choice what she does with her own body. It is for no one else to decide what someone does to their body, it is for them and them alone. If they want an abortion, that's fine- we have no right to rip any more of a women's rights away from her.

Exactly... It's not alive on its own yet at that point.

Pro-life. A mother's whom is supposed to be one of the safest places on Earth, and we are taking that safety away. Although many people say, "It cant think yet, it's nothing." I personally don't think that's true. God knows your soul even before you are born. And I guess we can also say if a woman got raped, then is abortion appropriate? I think no. You can always give the child up for adoption. People may also say, "Well what if the girl is too young?" Then I don't know what to tell you. Please, I don't want anyone picking fights with me. Just read this, and if you don't have anything appropriate to say, then please don't respond.
That's what I think.
