I myself is a pro-choice person.I almost had one because i was 19 not married and wanted to start school again and i do not have allot of money and i was not ready emotional. Anyways i kept my son because my boyfriend convinced me to keep the baby. I out weighed the good and the bad and i was just being selfish because i did not want to give up my life and also i knew i was not living in a poor country and could get the help in i really needed it. I had friends who had abortions i still feel it is someones choice that no one should judge someone. I believe many people in our society should have abortions like drug addicts, child abusers ect should never have kids.

i am COMPLETELY, 100% pro-life. i do not think that there is EVER a circumstance where it's ok to murder an unborn child. if you arent a suitable parent, dont have children. if you cant keep from getting pregnant, stop having sex. you're right, drug addicts and child abusers shouldnt ever have kids. there is a real simple way to not get pregnant-dont have sex. if you are not emotionally, mentally, physically, or financially ready to be a parent, dont have sex. there are so many ready and willing and able people out there who want children but cannot have their own. there is no legitimate excuse in today's world to abort. i dont mean to come across rude, but this is something i feel VERY strongly about and will not back down on my convictions. there is never and will never be a time when someone can convince me that murdering an innocent unborn child is ok.

There was a time in my life where i thought i was pro-choice, though not an option for myself. then i became pregnant with my daughter. i agree, that CHILD (not fetus) becomes a person the moment of conception. now while trying for her brother, we went thru 3 miscarriages late in the 1st trimester. i cannot tell you what a knife to the heart it was to hear the dr refer to my child, my loss as a missed abortion. they even seemed irritated that i demanded a 2nd ultrasound (the only way we ever found out about the losses) to prove that my child was truly gone before allowing a d&c. we saw a heartbeat prior to the loss with each child, so i felt comfortable accepting their deaths when no heartbeat could be found anymore. with our 2nd loss, a specialist told us our baby would die because he didn't like the heartrate (at 6 whole weeks). no compassion whatsoever! it seems to me that people, dr's included, are much too quick to dismiss an unborn child as being "nothing important".

I am pro life. I really like Alison's post on this subject. Strong, but true to the way I feel also. The abortion where some of the babies are still alive and are put in rooms to die that Shalaina is talking about is "partial live" abortions. That isn't all of it, they deliver the baby up to the head and punture the back of the head to the brain before the head is delivered and literally suck the babies brain out. NO LIE, there is a documentary on it, and true, Obama is all for it. Our pastor actually does a sermon on this and it is mostly directed at our youth when he is preaching abstanance. I do think that each person has the right to make thier own decision, but personally I don't believe in abortions. There is no reason not to have a child. In the Bible it said Mary was with CHILD, not fetus. From the moment of conception it is a child, and my personal opinion is that abortion is murder. I would never turn my back on someone who is going to or has had an abortion but that doesn't mean that I have to like it either. I would pray for them that they have made the right decision for them personally.

Pro-LIFE
Proverbs 6: 16-17
Six things the Lord hates, in fact seven are detestable to Him:
arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,
a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet eager
to run to evil, a lying witness who gives false testimony,
and one who stirs up trouble among brothers

You can't be 100% Christian and disobey God. It is no child's fault s/he was conceived, from rape, incest or other. How dare you call yourself a Christian and say that it's okay to kill a child. God created them and you, is it okay if someone murders you? Why don't you buy yourself a concordance and look up all the verses about partial birth, and read yourself that God hates it, a person filled with the Holy Spirit will hate what God hates. You should reevaluate your relationship with your creator and open your eyes to him and not accept the world. You will be judged for that when the end comes for everything you've done, and you will weep for what you've said.

I am 100% pro choice. A proud christian as well!! I have given child up for adoption when I was 19, unwed and did not have the proper support system. ( by the way that child turned out to be a brilliant, talented man and in college now) and have had 2 beautiful sons since then. No matter what anyone says, there are situations that I believe abortion is okay, and that is my opinion. No one will change my mind. We all have our opinions. Don't judge me, it is not for you to do. Only God judges!! And whether you have an abortion or not, God will forgive. And if you choose to judge me or anyone else that does not agree with you, well then you need to make sure you are a true Christian!!

I do believe that there are certain situations that abortion is okay. I believe that is you are raped, you did not willing have sex. Therefore when someone says if you do not want to get pregnant do not have sex...well if you are raped, molested, etc you are not a willing participant. Therefore if you get pregnant from something like that then yes, you should be allowed to have an abortion. Why should that child be brought into a situation of no love. They were not created by love, they were created by force and abuse. I for one could never do that. Knowing that I could not love that child the same way I would love a child brought into this world out of love. The would be a constant reminder of what happened. I have been raped and I am thankful that I did not get pregnant from it, I was given a pill after I was checked out. I did not ask to be raped nor does anyone else. So in those situations, abortion is okay and those people that choose to do so in those situations should not be looked upon as having "killed" a baby.

i agree w/ alison, i am 100% pro-life, if a girl doesnt want to get pregnant then she needs to keep her legs shut! at least give the child up for adoption if you dont want it, dont murder an innocent child just bc you're to immature & irresponsible to deal w/ the consequences of your actions! the day my brother in law got married i found out from his best friend that his wife had threatend him w/ an abortion if he didnt marry her when she wanted him to & now she acts like everything is fine, i dont know how she can look at their son & not feel guilty about what she was going to do, especially since she is due to have another son in 2 wks! she calls herself a christian but a christian wouldnt do something as low & spiteful as that, & they wouldnt even consider having an abortion just bc he wouldnt marry her when she wanted him to.

I believe everyone deserves compassion and support especially the helpless babies. We worship the same God who forgives anything but that doesn't make it an okay choice. I am not speacking only to darcel but to everyone who feels abortion is a solution to their fear of being a mom. And the reason I expected more of darcel then others is she claims Christianity. That places you in a position to witness to non believers and her views on abortion do not reflect God. Compassion yes but not approval. We need to help rape victims see how wrong abortion is and continue to help them in a loving decision for their child.

[deleted account]

Laura, rape victims don't need judgement and condemnation. They need compassion and support. I don't agree w/ abortion even in the case of rape, but how does your attack on Darcel help anything?



I don't know about your's, but my God is capable of forgiving anything.

i nearly had one with my son because my partner didnt want the baby but when i got to the table and was told how far i was i refused to go through even if that mean i would have to leave my partner and look after my baby on my own , but the good lord made things better and he came to love our son very much and we both wouldnt change a thing ...there are lots of things that go through a womans mind when they find out but i can say that nothing or no one shauld tell us whether to "keep" the baby or not ...but women that do have an abortion should not be judged either, its not for us to judge ...not like we havent done things in our lifes that we shouldnt be proud of right?

Darcel, I'm not saying that you are unchristian for contemplating an abortion I'm saying that had you done it it was selfish. I know when your scared everything seems easier then being shunned. I believe this country or at least every church should step up and help any pregnant girl or woman to make the best choice for their baby. Not for themselves. If you had been pregnant your church should have gathered around you and prayed for your strength and guided you to adoption or helped you keep the baby if you wanted. Being young and confused and scared is not good enough to justify an abortion. But had you been confident in yourchurchto support you it probably wouldn't have been an option . I am not perfect I have ungodly thoughts and some unchristian actions. But I am nottalking Bout a babies life. I don't want to offend you I want you to see the horror you almost did and change your tune to pro life. We need to help mothers choose life for their babies. Your testimony could help someone decide not to abort if you tell how glad you are you didn't make that choice. Could you really have been happy now had you aborted a baby? Wouldn't that. Memory break your heart?

There are NO mistakes. God has a master plan that involves some questionable mothers getting pregnant and having babies. God gives each of us the right to choose to change our way of living. Maybe that is why some of those women get pregnant. Each baby that is born is living proof that there is a God. Abortion is a harder decision than some peope realize. The affects it has may last a lifetime. You never regret having a baby.

Definitely against it. I had my son young also and never even thought about this. I hate that they aren't given a chance to love if not their real mom, at least someone else. There is always someone who wants a baby. I could not bear the thought of not having my child. A hand-picked angel from God sent to my husband and I not only to bless our lives, but to enrich others also. We see how happy he makes not only us, but other people as well and we hope that his brother due in july will do the same. its a very selfless act to have your baby and I commend all mothers who make that sacrifice to raise their children or moms who raise others children.

I am definately Pro-Life. I believe that if you aren't ready to be a parent, then you should practice abstinence. I believe that abortion should not be considered a method of birthcontrol for those who acted irresponsibly and had sex without birthcontrol, I believe that even in the case of rape that abortion should not be an option. God doesn't make mistakes. Each pregnancy is a gift from God. Even if we did not plan a pregnancy, God did. Rape is a horribly bad thing. Why make it worse with abortion. The way to make it right is to have that baby. He/she may turn out to be the best thing that every happened to you, may be the next president of the United States, may be the person that has life saving bone marrow for patient in need,or may be the baby that a childless couple has been longing for. Life or death is not up to us. God has all this planned out BEFORE we are born and he told us in the 10 commandments that "Thou shalt not Kill." If God knows us even before we are conceived and Mary was "with child", then at the very moment of conception there is a baby. Having an abortion is killing a baby, which is murder. We may not have to answer to the law if we have one, but we will certainly have to answer to God. Abortion is against his law and very well may be the thing that keeps us out of Heaven. The only instance that i have a problem with is when the pregnancy will kill the mother. I don't know how you could chance loosing the mother and the baby by going through with the pregnancy, but then again it was in God's plan for that pregnancy to happen, so he is in control of the situation.. I am a mother, grandmother and a Registered Nurse who has helped alot of babies come into this world. Each and every time I have seen a baby born I've been amazed at the miracle of it all and have realized what Love God has for us by giving us such a wonderful gift. All children are Gifts from God, given to us to love and cherish and raise according to God's law until he is ready for them in Heaven. Only HE has the right to end a life.

Laura,

How Christian of you to self-righteously judge anothers testimony of rape and confusion and accuse them of not believing in God. How charitable and kind, and Godly. It is so clear that you understand the worry and stress and trama a young confused rape victim expereinces and you are exactly the Christian I would want to talk to any young pregnant rape victim. Your compassion for a young girls plight is so overwhelming it warms my soul. You are a shinning example of a Christian warrior!

Well I'm 32 and believe me u I love my 3 boys ages 10, 9, & 3. But when I found out I was pregnant again (not married and having problems with the relationship I'm in) I really thought about having one. I am pro choice everyone had to make the best decisions in their life when they feel the need is necessary. As for me I did not go with my first thought because their were things that lead up to this point that made me believe God has a plan for this child and myself so I am happy to say I am 6 monthe pregnant and happy to feel my 4th little man kicking around in me.

Darcel how DARE you call a child of God an INSULT????? This Is so incredibly unchristian. Are you really a believer in God? if you claim to be then you can not say that he is not brokenhearted by every baby dead. If you had been pregnant after rape and you had an abortion that would have been the most selfish thing yu could do. You honestly would kill your child so you wouldn't be looked down on by some church members???? Doesn't that sound outrageous? If you would end the heart of your son or daughter for your own reputation God would be so disappointed in you. A baby is NEVER a consequence, NEVER an insult, NEVER an inconvenience,NEVER a lesson, or a nuissance. It is Gods beloved child that he sent his son to die for. That product of rape baby is Gods child. Why the heck do you think he should ever forgive someone of ending the life of a baby in the womb any differently then a baby who is born. If you were killed for no reason tomorrow everyone would be all fired up about how wrong it was and someone might even say "she died before her time/ she was too young to die" too bad 1.3 million babies die before they ever know love by their mother. Their mothers don't love them, they ignore their babies growing bodies and pay for their death. I know it's hard to turn a pro-death person to pro-life but a CHRISTIAN! This is absurd. God is not happy with these evil ideas of choosing death for our children. Pro-death Christians should be ashamed of their immature and selfish ideas a out the value of a humans life. Darcel don't even respond to me cuz I don't want to hear it. My heart is breaking for
all these babies and I don't want to hear more justifications for their death. Rape is not the end of the womans life but she could still decideto let someone die from it. Why sentence the child to the death penalty for the crimes of his or her father. The baby didn't rape you so don't take your anger out on your child. If you get a bad reputation from being raped then take heart for blessed are those who are persecuted for my name. God is pro-life and his children are also pro-life.

I believe that God gave us free will which means we get to make choices. That being said I do not believe that abortion is what God would want us to choose. It is taking a life and we are commanded against that. If someone came to me contemplating abotrion vs adoption I would steer them toward adoption, but ultimately it is their choice and they are the one that has to answer to God for their decision. I know people who have had abortions and I would never begin to judge them for their decision. It's certainly not my place to do so. I have a dear friend who is the result of a rape, and I am thankful that her mom chose to bring her into this world.I have friends who cannot have children of their own and they desperately want a baby, so they are looking to adopt a baby and any race will be fine. I have friends who have adopted and finally have the family they have always longed for. None of us are perfect and we all have to answer for our choices.

Hey Darcel i so agree with you being a pro choice myself and i was also raped when i was a young girl. So i know how you feel and how some people can force their views down somes throat. Like someone said there should still have them baby really when you are raped maybe you can say that.But i also respect those pro life views because everyone should be able to choice.

"In the case of rape, why add to the tragedy of a rape by having an abortion? "

I can answer that question.

You have to be a rape victim to understand why someone would consider having an abortion after rape. Being pregnant because of rape is adding insult to injury. I was scared to report the rape because I felt that I would not be believed. If I would have kept the pregnancy I would have had to report the rape or be labeled the church harlot. --- I remember these emotions well, because I was so scared and hurt at the time. That is why I said thank God I was not pregnant from that union.

Cindy Ward is so right that women need to be supported during an emotional time of pregnancy. As a 19 year old girl I was scared and hurting and did not consider that someone would support me love me and believe me about my rape. And sadly, many women also do not have that support during an unplanned pregancy.

I think that if overall women where nurtured more during pregnancy regardless of the circumstances around the conception emotionally supported with the choice to adopt and/or raise healthy children abortion would be an option very few would select.

Your boyfriend was wise to convince you not to abort your son. First of all, even though it happens often, conception is a miracle. We all have a purpose, including each baby concieved. Anything we do to alter the natural flow of things has a lasting impact on the universe. Second, when a woman aborts her baby (I speak from experience) she lives with that guilt for the rest of her life; wondering, wishing and wanting for that baby. She knows it's a human life; she knows it is a part of her; she knows she will face that baby again in eternity. I aborted my baby 37 years ago and I still cry over it - and I know there is nothing I can do to reverse it. Since that time I gave birth to, and raised a wonderful son who makes me proud every day. I love my son and can only wonder how his life would have been different if he had known his sibling who is waiting for him in Heaven. And that is how I feel about abortion.

I am completely against abortion. I myself had one at 16. I had know understanding of what I was doing until I walked out of the clinic. I knew, lying on the table and feeling them tug and rip my baby apart I had made a horrible mistake. The darkness and guilt that women carry with them afterwards is indiscrbable. Any woman that says it never effected her is lying and isn't dealing with her feelings(she has shut down emotionally). It has been 20 years and every year I mourn on the day I had my abortion and on the day of my child's birth. I have forgiven myself and more importantly I have been forgiven by God. That baby and event was what lead me to the Lord. I can't say if I had to do it all over again, I'd do anything different. I would like to say I would, but given my situation at 16 I'm not sure. Those of you who say your pro- life need to do more that walk that walk. Action needs to occur in our society, that helps women who deside to keep there child. They need finacial support, emotionally support and physical support right at their finger tips. What is in place now is pathitic and seems to overwhelming to try to attempt to find help. Planned Parenthood makes it sooo much easier to just have the abortion. We as a society need to reverse that and make abortion harder than keeping the child.

I am pro-choice. Reason being, I am a mom, I know the emotions that come with being pregnant and how giving your child up for adoption can damage anyone emotionally. I have had a obortion and although I would never recommend it to anyone, it is understandable and it is a personal choice. I have asked for forgiveness and I have made peace with my choice as a woman and a mother. I love my kids and I wouldn't give them up for the world. Again, it is a personal choice and I am firm on that.

I am TOTALLY 100% pro-life and proud of it. An abortion is nothing but murder. Who are women to think they have a right to kill an unborn child? It's not their body, as they claim. It's the body of an unborn baby! The baby is a totally separate human being. In the case of rape, why add to the tragedy of a rape by having an abortion? To all those who don't want to have a baby, use birth control. As for teenagers, DON'T have sex. The only safe sex is NO SEX!!

I believe the "choice" was made BEFORE conception. I believe in life which I consider to be at the conception of the baby. I base my belief on the scripture from Psalm 139:13-16, "For You did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother's womb. I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self knows right well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery]. Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them."

I am pro life. We are not trying to build a master race here. Even though thats what Margaret Sanger wanted founder of planned parenthood and the abortion movement. She hated blacks she was part of the KKK she wanted them killed. Here is what she said on blacks, immigrants and indigents:
"...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

God loves us and children he never intended to have babies targeted as being evil. It is sad for me to think that what should be the safest place in the world is one of the most dangerous and violent places. Babies are to be hugged and loved not mutilated and crushed. I understand that not every situation is ideal, however my brother and his wife have been waiting to adopt for many years now. Imagine if there was no abortions i am sure they would have a child now. Women how have had abortions need to be prayed for and with, and my God forgive them.

I could never have an abortion but I do have problems with wanting to make abortions illegal. I do not believe that it is ok to have an abortion and I have 5 wonderful grandkids, 2 of which were conceived with the parents still in high school and they both had them are happily married and when we found out that the babies were on the way, we prayed that they would not want an abortion ( My kids were the fathers so we had no say). The parents of my one daughter-in-law REALLY wanted her to have an abortion but she is a Christian, her parents aren't) and knew that she couldn't and I have the greatest 7 3/4 old granddaughter in the world.



My problem with the issue is the lack of support I see for girls (women) who end up preganant outside of marriage whether it be with a boyfriend, one night fling, or rape or whatever and the stigma that is still put on them because of this. We have lived this twice and both times instead of supporting the young people through the decision making, preganance, and so forth, they were deemed terrible people and how dare they get pregnant, etc. Both my sons and their girlfriends. We need to love and support these people and help them out instead of making them feel worse then they already do. I know that this is not always the case but it happens way to often so in their mind and abortion is an easy way out, which it is not. I know women who have had one and years later it still haunts them.



I believe that we need to be there to help them, give them options and not just to get them through the pregnancy but after it as well. However as much as I hate it, women will get an abortion and to make it illegal will only take us back to the days prior it Roe vs Wade when women did them themselves. My MIL is an RN and remembers woemn coming into the ER that attempted to do them and that is not an answer either.



I realize the question is whether or not you are for or against abortions and I am kind of on the fence because there are deeper issues involved than "just and abortion."

I am 110% pro-life! I once heard a woman's testimony who gave birth to her daughter after being raped. She gave the baby up for adoption, and when she grew up she found her birth mother and they are very close now. Her daughter said she was very thankful that she was given the gift of life by her birth mom. She was adopted by a wonderful family. And most of all, she said that she was so glad that she was not given the death penalty for the crime of her biological father.

Absolutley 100 percent pro-life. There is not one situation I can say that abortion would be ok in. Even rape cases. What a horrible situation no doubt, but every life was made by God with purpose. And though you concieved through terrible circumstances, in no way should an innocent life be taken. Everything happens for a reason. Killing that child would make you a murderer, how diffrent is that from a rapist? Give that child the chance to live. Nobody should be denied life. If abortion was considered while you were developing in the womb, you would not be for abortion then huh? Because every human being has the will to live. I believe everybody has the right to make there own choices. But choices for themselves! When another life is brought into the picture, its a diffrent story. Every decision we make has consequences. Everybody knows engaging in sex can lead to a pregnancy. So be responsible enough to handle that situation. There are more than 2 million people in America waiting to adopt, and there are 1.3 million abortions every year. Give that child the chance to be loved, give that family the chance to be happy. Give them the gift of a child, give them a miracle.

I'm 100% pro choice. My motto is if you don't like abortions than you shouldn't have one, but don't force others to follow your convictions by taking away their freedom of choice.

I am not 100% pro abortion. I do not agree when parents/boyfriends or husbands/external pressure "forces" a woman to have an abortion when she doesn't want one. This happends just as often as a young lady is "forced" to carry a baby.

I was raped when I was 19. I would have not been emotionally stable enough, Christian enough or whatever enough to handle a 40 week pregnancy resulting from rape. Thankfully I was not pregnant from that "union." However if I was pregnant an abortion would have been MY CHOICE based on my convictions.

I had a misscarrage at 3 months and that baby was very mush a person and when you kill a baby you are going against Gods commandments and you will stand before God and answer to it.If people don't want a child there many people that cant have kids that would love to have a child but no one thinks that .God says he knows you even before you were born . Just think if God knew a persons hair color ,eyes color and personality how could think it was nothing and discard it when God has planed its future.

The Bible says "Thou shalt not kill" No exceptions.
My daughter got pregnant. My huisband asked her what she planned to do now. She said she was not getting an abortion. He said that was not even an option. He was right. It was not planned but the child was still a child of God and our grandchild. If she did not want it we would raise it ourselves. We expect a grandson in two weeks. She is staying with ujs and keeping the baby. Yes it disrupted her life. She was in college and had to quit. It was a mistake she will have to live with for the rest of her life. It will also be a blessing and we will support her all the way. Jesus is there for us when we mess up and sin. We will be there for her and our new grandson. And God will be there with us each and every day. And she is forgiven.
Abortion is not an option!!! "Thou shalt not kill."

I am pro-life. I respect that non-Christians do not respect life the way that God intends for it, but the Bible is very clear that even in the womb they are people, His people. I know many Christian families that have adopted children from different races. In fact, two of my brother-in-laws are examples of that. My in-laws are white, but adopted children that weren't. Everyone will have opinions about this, but the only opinion that matters is God's. Here are a few Scriptures that I wanted to share:

Jeremiah 1:5 - "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..."

Psalm 51:5 - Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.

Psalm 27:10 - From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother's womb you have been my God.

Psalm 139:13 - For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.

Job 31:15 - Did not he who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?

Isaiah 49:1 - Listen to me, you islands; hear this, you distant nations: Before I was born the LORD called me; from my birth he has made mention of my name.

In my opinion having an abortion is trying to play God, or telling Him that He made a mistake. I understand that people who don't know Christ can do that, they don't know the Truth. But the Bible says that God is in charge and He knows what He is doing. Who are we to tell Him that He is wrong? His purpose might be for the baby to be adopted, or to bless the mother, or to bless an orphanage. But He does have a purpose for each and every time that a baby is conceived. It is planned before the conception even happens, and ordained by Him.

As an adopted child I do not believe in abortion..My wonderful birth mom chose to give me a better life...she told me in 2003 when I met her that it was the most difficult decision she ever made. She was 20 and already had an 18 month old. She knew she could not afford me and was not married to my birth father. Every child is a blessing from God..and when I was pregnant with my child I cried everyday b/c I appreciated her more for making the best choice for me...I respect your opinion but I wanted to let you know how I felt too....God bless you for having your child.

I was adopted and so was my sister and my husband. If our birth mothers decided to have an abortion, I would not be here, my sister would not be here nor would my husband. It's that plain and simple. There would be three less lives in the world.

I am 100% Pro-life. However I have a different take on why Abortion is so prevalent in the US.A. I truly believe that satan has been, is, and will continue telling women for years one big lie after another, convincing them that an abortion is nothing more than getting ride of a Problem. I knew a young women when I was in college that did believe the lie twice. She will be the first one to tell you that an abortion does more that "get ride of a problem" It does unthinkable damage to the women that for what ever reason kills her baby.



Pleas understand I am not trying to judge any one that has ever had or ever thought of having an abortion. I personally feel that as a Christian it is my responsibility to Pray for post abortion moms, and the people that work in the industry.

I am against abortion but i do understand when people say "well what about victims of rape". however even if you were raped and don't want the child then go through with the birth and put the child up for adoption to those that cannot have children. same with teens that get pregnant. i think that they should go through the pregnancy because if they want to have sex they need to go through the consequences and honestly i think that the teen should keep the baby because they need to learn that this is what could happen if they have sex. but if they are from a bad home and the baby would be in danger then teens should give it up for adoption. there are so many couples out there that would be perfect parents but are unable to get pregnant.

It is nice to here others views on this topic. Anyways everyone has different views on this topic. My view is that i am pro-choice and always will be. Like many of you said there is adoption that is very true. My family adopted from the usa and many canadians have their were all black and mix kids many europian countries also adopt black and mix race kids from america. My point is yes there is adoption but how many kids that will never get adopted because the people who adopt usually want white kids and there will wait a very long time until a white baby comes up. Many white people do not care like my parents but many do care what their kid skin color looks like. I have many friends in the foster care system their wish there had a family of there own and never will find one. Why make a child be born when no one wants them most likely their will suffer for the rest of their lives only a handful of children will get adopted. So many kids that are in the sytem that are bing abused in many ways i am not saying there are not good foster family. But there is many that just want the money and could care less and kids get the worst end of it. I am glad there is a pro-choice everyone needs an option for whats right for them but not for anyone else.What happens to the moms that keep the kids in the end many of them are on welfare and people complain about them being on welfare because there have no other incomes to take of the child there did not abort? That is my views on abortion everyone should do whats right for them only them.

I am 100% pro-life. When I was pregnant with my daughter the doctor thought something might be wrong according to my blood test. My mom and grandmother was telling me to have an abortion. I could not bring myself to do it. I could feel her growing inside me and I already loved her. I was ready to deal with whatever problem she had. I am glad I made the choice I did. She is 3 years old now and perfecly healthy and very smart and funny. Some people have abortions up to 25 weeks. I have seen babies born at 25 weeks that survived that are happy and healthy. They already have all there organs, fingers and toes, and can feel pain. I totally think that abortion is murder. If somebody can't handle a child or dosen't want one they can always find a family that would want it.

i am 100% pro-life. even if they are drugs or what ever there are families out there that would love to have a child they can hold and love. and give a great life. i feel people that do that are just selfish. once the baby is a convise it a life. who are we to take that away. i seen a pic of a child who was abortion the baby had leg, arms, noise, everything it has made me even more agaist it. if these adoption places made it easer for those families that really want and love kids. to get them. then i think that more people would have them and give them to families. i have two boys. we don't got alot of money. plus, my last preg. didn't go well. if i could i take a lil girl in a heart beat maybe even two. if i could. all kids des. love and at a life. but this is just my point of view.

100% Pro-life. I watched a documentary where when the babies are born (because it was too late to terminate it in the womb) they just set them in another room and let them starve to death. That is so disgusting and makes me sick and sad just thinking about it. It's horrible that people can do such things, and Obama of course said that he was OK with the clinics that did that. How can anyone be OK with that?!?!?!
People shouldn't make babies if they don't want them and if they don't want them and still make them they should give them up for adoption, there are so many people who can not have any and would love the chance to be a parent. Nobody has the right to take a human life away. Who knows what that child may have grown up to be!
Also, they have shown that the babies in the womb CAN feel pain.
