    Abortion is a serious crime and a sin before God and it's punishable in many countries around the world.It's the ending of a pregnancy by removing the embryo before it can survive outside the uterus.It can happen in two main ways.One way is by a miscarriage which happens spontaneously.The second way is when steps are taken to end a pregnancy deliberately.

    Although I understand and respect your point of view. I am of this opinion. Either way, the expectant mother has to make the decision as to what she should do with her unborn child. I truly believe that all children are a blessing. Unfortunately, the way that many children are conceived may have you thinking otherwise. In this case, it solely depends on how the woman (mother) feels about the events surrounding the pregnancy.

    However, I don't believe that abortion should be used as a means of birth/population control. Meaning: every time a woman engages in consensual unprotected sex and pregnancy results, I don't feel that abortion should be the only option . Now, if a woman is facing a life threatening situations, rape, molestation and incest, this in and of itself changes how a woman views and handles an impending pregnancy.

    Abortion should not be acceptable. People should just be responsible enough to take care of the children they bring to life. It is a process that puts the mother in great danger. The woman undergoing the abortions process can die or even injure the uterus making it hard for the woman to carry another child.

    It is risk to your health. Why kill a child when you can just give birth and maybe look for parents to adopt it, since there are so many childless couples out there, but that’s if you just really can’t keep it, because I would never give up my child. A child is a blessing.

    I think today we have so many things to prevent pregnancy and after all that, you still get pregnant and go on abortion because you don't want a child. People just need to be more careful and to take care of themselves. And to take responsibility for their actions. Uncareful couples that don't want a baby but still get pregnant I take for irresponsible. But sometimes if something goes wrong and the only option is abortion I agree with that.

    Life is precious. It is a gift given to us by God and no one has the right to take it except the Giver of life. Abortion is a major sin. Taking away the life of an innocent offspring which you made yourself is unacceptable. Be responsible enough with your own actions. Abortion can be risky as well to the mother. She can put her life in danger by doing this.

    I am pro-choice on abortion 100%. I can absolutely guarantee that no woman looks at abortion as a contraceptive method and IF they do they really need to be educated on how painful and invasive it is for the woman not to mention how traumatizing it is. PLUS abortions are usually so invasive that people will know if you have one done.

    I myself had a pregnancy scare and considered an abortion. Not because I didn't want a child, not because I wasn't in a stable situation. My reason for considering an abortion was because unfortunately, I have 99% chance I have inherited the same issues my mother had when she was pregnant with me. When I was in her womb I was resting heavily on her aorta she had DVTs galore. She almost died several times throughout her pregnancy. I myself would not go through with that knowing I could die.

    Just because you don't abort it does not necessarily mean you are doing what is best for the child.

    Abortion

    To me, this is a great error. I believe that once a mistake has been made, it is final. Getting pregnant at a tender age could be from different sources like rape, or unknowingly sexual unprotection.

    The rape case is the painful part. But, this doesn't give you full reason to kill an innocent child. You do not know how great the child can become.

    For example, Justin Beiber's mum wanted to abort him. Thanks to her intellect or other reasons that she didn't kill the poor child. And today, he is the great musician!

    In a case of heart break, killing the child doesn't mean your boyfriend will reunite with you. What he has in mind is what he will do.

    So, never think of killing a poor, innocent, lovely and a bright child! Your hurt will definitely be over soon!

    I think the first thing is to stop lying to healthcare professionals. It doesn’t help.

    You need to decide whether you want to continue the pregnancy. Forget about who the dad is for the moment and focus on you. What do you want to do?

    Do you feel able to cope with twins on your own? Is your salary equal to paying your bills plus two lots of childcare? Or would you expect to not work for a while. Are either of the possible fathers working/able to pay child maintenance.
    Can you talk to your family, your mum, and whether they would be able to help? How will they react?

    Give yourself some calm time to think. Once you are clear how you feel, then look up the benefits calculator and work put the money side. Could you do a house share with another single mum?

    You have time to think carefully, there is no immediate rush to decide. Things are easier when you have a better idea of what to expect.

    I agree with most of the other comments/replies to this post. I could go on for hours about this, the good and the bad. I don’t have time to read all the others, but of the ones I have I feel like theres one thing that may not have been mentioned. Yes, when you hear abortion most people will immediately think of a teenager or child. Because if you’re an adult, you would be married or mature enough to not have it happen. Right? Well, I disagree with this. I’ve heard stories and seen remakes (that may or may not be based on a true story) of people getting an abortion and sometimes it’s actually to provide the small living being inside that woman’s body a better life. For some babies if they were born, their mother would die, no chance at surviving along with itself as well, or at least the baby would be at a larger risk. For some you do have to choose, one or the other, as both will not make it. Sometimes you’re lucky and get a miracle, but even then why go through ~9 months of torturing yourself and the baby with terrifying thoughts. Yes, it’s worth it in the end but it’s not like you’ll ever know what will happen until it actually does. Whether you choose abortion or not, this applies to all other decision as well, there will never be a right or wrong answer. You will never make the wrong choice. You chose what you thought was best in the moment, even if you don’t think so, and that’s all that matters.

    I am total agreement with what you are saying. I have a close friend whose first child was conceived as a result of rape. Her family would not allow her have an abortion. She comes from a Pro-Life family. She carried her son to fruition and raised him to the best of her ability. Everyone may not be able to do this. I feel that abortion is a very sensitive issue and should be dealt with on an individual basis. Everyone's life story is different.

    Also like you, I disagree with using abortion as means of birth/population control. I also had a friend who had seven (7) abortions before she had her first child. She chose to abort because the prospective fathers did not want children.

    I firmly believe that children are a blessing from YAHWEH (GOD). Now, when I look at how badly some of these little treasures are treated after they are born and come home. I can't help but to wonder, if you made the decision to continue with the pregnancy and you knew in your heart you really did not want the baby: why not put it up for adoption? There are so many people who want babies. I just feel that weighing all options and making an informed decision would in the end be so much better bringing an innocent child home and mistreating him/her.

    I do not support abortion because something's about it just feels immoral. To me, it doesn't matter if the fetus can think or feel pain, but what really matters is the fact that it was going to turn into something that could in the future. Think of it as taking away a chance at living a life from the fetus. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I just cannot bring myself to even think about supporting abortion. What do you think about my perspective?

    I am a pro-choice person however I would never get an abortion because that is the decision I am taking for MY body. I cannot decide to tell another women to have or not have an abortion because that should be HER decision about HER body. Everyone's decision should be respected with regards to discussions towards topics like these. However we should not oppress and force our beliefs on others because THEY are going to live with that decision not YOU.

    Pro choice all the way. And I feel the biggest argument for it involves bodily autonomy. By restricting abortion, we grant pregnant women less rights than a corpse. You can NOT legally take tissue or organs from a corpse to save someone else's life unless that person agreed to be a tissue/organ donor prior to death. But we can force a woman to carry a collection of cells against her will? I do not agree with the disparity in the least.

    Would I personally get an abortion? That's difficult to say. But I am not every woman, and it is not up to me to take away their right to decide what to do with their own body.
