Re: Abortion - is it wrong?#22639 2 years, 11 months agoAs I have gotten older my attitude has changed on the subject.
When I was 19 my girlfriend became pregnant and we decided on an abortion at that time neither one of us wanted a kid
Now in middle age I look back and wish that I would have encouraged her to have the baby, because I wish I had a family
If I was in the same situation now, I would try to convince her to have the child , but for me the decision is still up to the female.
Still pro choice
Re: Abortion - is it wrong?#22648 2 years, 11 months agoI don't look at this issue as either "right" or "wrong", that's to black-and-white. I see it as "higher" and "lower" choices.
I know people who have multiple abortions. Six in one case. I consider this to be a "low" choice as this person is obviously using it as birth control and has no respect for the process of life.
I know others who truly got caught in a bad situation and had abortions and, not that it is for me to judge, but I don't/didn't see it as a "low" choice at all.
I also know someone who got ended up in a bad situation and chose to have the baby and give it up for adoption. Now that is a "high" choice in my opinion.
Ultimately you will be the one to have to live with whatever choice you make so make one that you are going to be comfortable with.

Re: Abortion - is it wrong?#22652 2 years, 11 months agoI think its wrong to have the baby if you know you can't give it the proper care it needs and if you really dont want it....
but like lynx just said, I don't think its right to use it as birth control either...

Re: Abortion - is it wrong?#22724 2 years, 11 months agoI'm a guy, so I am pro-choice, as I have no right to tell a woman what to do with her body.
Our goverment should stay out of it as well as it is run mostly by men.

Re: Abortion - is it wrong?#22831 2 years, 11 months agoPersonally, I am pro-choice (that means the individual woman can choose)
I also agree that it's a very touchy subject.
I really don't think it's okay to make laws in this country based on the moral beliefs of any one religion, that's why the government should stay the hell out of this debate.... that part infuriates me.
Now I have to take a chill pill.
