Abortion is a medical procedure resulting in the termination of a human pregnancy and death of a fetus. Abortion was banned in 30 states until the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. The ruling made abortion legal in all 50 states but gave them regulatory powers over when abortions could be performed during a pregnancy. Currently, all states must allow abortions early in pregnancies but may ban them in later trimesters.
If the Father of the unborn child is willing and capable of caring for the child and wants to assume legal custody of child and is a fit parent, I feel he should have an equal say in the decision. There should be rights for Fathers who are able and willing.
I think this may encourage people to be more thoughtful about intimacy. I believe Men should have a say in the decision of the termination of their unborn child.
I also believe in required counseling before and after abortion as it often leads to eventual traumatic disorders and depression.
There is no evidence showing that the woman has her mental wellness affected from an abortion. Who is going to pay for all of that? The main reason why a woman gets an abortion is because she is financially unstable and cannot afford to care for a child. Sure, it would be nice for a man to have the chance, but the amount of stigma around pregnancy. A abortion is for a woman not a man. A woman's body is more affected by the outcome, and if the man wanted the child then most likely she would not be having an abortion. Plus, how are you suppose to enforce that? Is the clinic suppose to do a hous… Read more
I feel he should have an equal say in the decision
The man in the relationship can something but the woman doesn't have to listen. The embryo is growing in her not him. The man has no say so in what the woman does with her body. If she decides she doesn't want to carry the embryo that is her personal choice. You cannot tell a woman what to do with her body, you can suggest something, but don't tell her she needs to do this and that.
End all programs, no abortive procedures period. Lock up all doctors, nurses, staff of any facility that participated in any abortive acts. I want stiff penalties for medical staff and go after any women who have had an abortion and grandfathering it. For each abortion 15 years to life it is premeditated murder not only for the woman also the man that impregnated her!!!!!!!!!!
You see you don't understand the concept that it is not your body but it is theirs. Many people say that abortions are wrong but you have no say in what a woman does with her body. Yes, it may not always be the right thing to do but some people just can't afford to have a kid at the time. It doesn't mean that you should just go kill it instead have time to think if that is what you really, and if it is that is your choice. No one gets to have a say in what you do with your body. Say someone was raped and got pregnant, do you really think a woman is going to want to keep a child that came from a man who hurt her. In some cases they do keep the baby. It really is just that woman's choice. Not yours or anybody elses.
What??? Are you joking or are you litteraly being serious, you know my Aunt almost died since she almost could not get an abortion since you guys think it’s murder. If you been all abortions then you may be saving babies, but you are not saving women, you do not avocate for them. Also a fifth teen year sentence, that’s a bit extreme, also I know you might not be familiar with the term, but...have you ever heard of rape?
oh my lord please shut up. lets say you were sexually assaulted and ended up pregnant. would you carry and raise that child ???? no. if you had an illness that if you gave birth you would lose your life. would you continue the pregnancy??? not a single should has the right to dictate what a woman does to her body or with her body. if youre not getting the abortion, dont worry about it.
First of all you asked a question and didn't allow an answer, yes I would continue to raise the child. And you need to get it in your head that at the point of the woman becoming pregnant it is NOT just her child, it may be in her body, but that does not make it just HER child the man in that relationship has equal responsibility in the creation of the child and therefore has an equal say, in what happens to it. And "don't worry about it."? You have to be joking you expect the man in that situation to NOT worry about what happens to the child, or the woman. Any real christian man with at leas… Read more
Abortion should be mandatory for anyone with an IQ under 120.
Your kidding right? This is the most ridiculous comment I have ever seen. Your IQ has nothing to with abortion. See you people who are Pro-life seem to just throw anything into the situation. A woman who decides to abort the fetes growing inside of her is her personal choice. Her IQ is just another thing that many believe a woman has to have to have a conman sense in life. Some mothers just aren't meant to be. Those who aren't ready to be mothers and keep the baby tend to be the ones who neglect and abuse their children.
I do not agree with a helpless human life being ended purely because of any unfortunate circumstance which may have created that life. But I DO NOT agree that my beliefs should be FORCED upon another. Let each make their choices until science can factually determine when life begins.
Pro-life, providing much more sex education, reality education, birth control, awareness of building self esteem and personal boundaries, a movement to de-glamorize promiscuity and permit abortions in first trimester for rape and if mother is in danger by her choice full term...
Pro choice and pro life - sex is inevitable as well as unexpected pregnancy. Birth control should be mandatory for anyone under 18 and abortion due to irresponsible behavior as in not using birth control should be allowed but with penalty that gets more severe for repeat offenders. Drug addicted adult men and women should have mandatory birth control (implant)until drug tested clean for at least 2 years. Men who fail to use birth control share same responsibility and penalty for their contribution toward unwanted pregnancy. Late term abortions absolutely illegal and carries a minimum 18 year prison sentence. No penalty for victims of rape, incest, or medical issues including known birth defects in the fetus.
It is already hard enough to prove someone is raped. That would infringe on someone's privacy to have to make them prove that they were raped, or that the pregnancy is a result of incest. Just let woman have an safe abortion instead of them having to sneak around.
Mandatory birth control for those under 18??? What... You realise most don't lose their virginity until 17/18, & hormones can really mess up some women's mental state... If you are instead including things like condoms etc, than I'm not sure how you would mandate/enforce that rule... But yes, obviously the importance of safe sex should be emphasised...
I'm a 30 year old female (in a sexually active committed relationship), & I have never used birth control pills (nor been pregnant) in my life, & like many women I don't feel comfortable playing with my natural hormones... & I'm … Read more
Many people against abortion who claim to be "pro-life" do not understand that abortion is an alternative for birth and not parenthood. You can not agree with the idea of abortion but still agree with the right for the person to choose if they want an abortion or not. It seems like you are really more anti-choice or pro-birth/forced birth than you are pro-life. And if you think they should put it up for adoption, our adoption system is very flawed, so why don't you fix that and then come against me with a stronger argument.
Women should not have babies
so how in the hell will the world reproduce dumb *** Your mom gave birth to you. Show some **** ing respect.
Abortion is ethically abhorrent if sole intent is to end the life of the fetus. It may be morally permissible if intent is to save the life of the mother, though it is still tragic.
Government may have the right to ban abortion, but this would be very difficult to enforce. Prohibition is rarely an effective tool unless an injured party can report the crime.
Give a fathers choice to his right to life with the child except in cases of rape or incest.
( The child should be born and given to the father if the mother does not desire to raise a child with the father - except in a case of substance dependency & abuse, rape, incest, incestuous rape, human trafficked coerced prostitution. Then determine the best determination for resiliency of the child. )
Use the embryo for stem science
Pro choice but I oppose late term abortion. I also feel if birth control were utilized and provided fully, it would cut down significantly
Late term abortions are never performed out of convenience. In those cases, the mother obviously wants to be pregnant and carry out her child. They are performed in protection of the mother's life in the case she has an illness that would kill her during labour, or if the child has an illness that would kill it shortly after birth. You're just overall pro-choice. The exception you made was irrelevant.
I'm personally against it but strongly believe that it's just like the presidential election, if you don't vote you can't say anything. If you disagree with abortion what are you going to do to help those kids who didn't get aborted and are now in foster homes? If you're going to be against it, do something to help. Adopt that baby of the mother you judged for wanting an abortion.
YES PREACH TO THOSE WHO OPPOSE ABORTIONS BUT DO NOTHING TO HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pro life to an extent. If you decide to have an abortion because you don't want to have a child or you're not ready, well what did you think was going to happen when you had Sex and had a cream shot?! All these ghetto kids knocking up their girls in the hood, they should prob have an abortion because the mother and child is just going to mooch off the system and my paycheck and the kid is prob going to grow up to a perp. I regret having the say that but it's the truth. People need to be better educated, although it's not that hard. You *** inside a girl, she's going to get pregnant.
Pro-eugenics. Women of European descent with IQs >100 and sound, healthy children should not be allowed to abort their children. I believe rape, incest, and inevitable danger to mother/child are good exceptions to that rule, but those are rare. The underclasses have free access to abortions.
