Thats her choice to do so. I can't personally understand why a woman would choose to emotionally and physically continue to do so but I do feel its her right.

Where do we draw the line though? Can one be drawn? IMO, if a woman keeps doing this, it is her right and it should be between her, and her doctor. No one elses business.

But if we draw a line and say "sorry you have had 2 abortions, you aren't allowed anymore", that can open a whole 'nother can of worms.

I would never want to impose a limit on abortions, or criteria for who can have one, but I believe that is WRONG in every sense. Heck, it is easier to get a packet of pills or a stinking condom than it is to get an abortion, so if for nothing else, why not take the easy route to begin with?

I try not to judge women that get abortions because no one truly knows their situation but them - but I cannot and will not understand why people would even think about using abortion as birth control, much less doing the procedure time after time.

Having had a miscarriage treated as an abortion I don't know how their bodies could handle it.

I do think there should be criteria for repeat abortions. If someone wants to have sex and not deal with the consequesnces they should consider getting their tubes tied, not having repeat abortions. And if they're going to keep having them, they should have to pay IN FULL for them. Medical coverage should oly go to a oint.

In NS, abortions are free. They're performed at the Victoria General Hospital in Halifax. I don't know of any other places that do them. I've "had one", and in the last six months I've been informed I had a preventative SA, not an abortion. I was miscarrying slowly, and we sped the process up, no other way to put it. There were girls there form all over the province, from Yarmouth to Sydney (both extremes from one end to the other). So in NS, abortions are paid for by the tax payers, as they are considered surgery. But as D&C's for miscarriage are also performed in the same place (different waiting area), this is probably why.

Totally wrong, lazy, selfish, irresponsible, sickening, I could go on and on.

I will NEVER understand why people don't use BC instead of waiting until they ARE ALREADY PREGNANT to prevent. You are KILLING your child for crying out loud, or should I say children, for no reason other than you were too lazy to use EFFECTIVE BC. Birth control is free at health departments, if you can not afford it, there IS NO excuse.

Abortion is becoming the most frequently performed surgical procedure in the U.S.

Ugh.

certainly is not the cheapest or safest form of BC. I hate that abortion is used that way and don't think it should be - however, I don't think any limitations should be placed on who gets an abortion or why or how many. Not for me to decide. Obviously more resources and education needs to be put in place so women do not think of abortion as a BC method

Why would anyone want to murder a baby, let alone multiples times. I don't know how they can live with themselves. The word that comes to mind for me is "EVIL"!

I support a woman's right to an abortion for an "oops"...for someone to actually just live their lives and go on their merry little way and say oh well I got two lines, time for the clinic. That is irresponsible. ABORTION IS NOT BIRTH CONTROL!!! I don't think it is right and I believe that there should be some system set into place that if a physician starts seeing patterns in routine abortions as birth control that the patient should have to pay much more or have an IUD or implant put in that cannot be "oops" I forgot to take it. There are so many other carefree options that I just don't understand...

For the longest time I use to be Pro Choice but now Im not so sure. I mean I still think that if a woman was raped then she should be able to have one but then again its not fair to that baby. That baby didnt do anything wrong. I dont think we should be able to take away a woman's right but then again should a woman have rights if she is using them so frivulously?? I like the idea about having to meet certain criteria but agree with someone else who said that it can open up a whole other can of worms. If those woman are so lazy and irrisponsible to not take birth control and just want to abort every time they get pregnant then what's to say that if abortion was illegal then they would abort themselves or carry to turn and drop the baby off in the dumpster. I know this is done already and the woman have other alternatives. But why dont they take them? This is a very complicated topic and I dont believe there is a right answer. Its just whatever you think is morally right....

I am new to the group, but wanted to add my thoughts on this.

Personally, I feel that abortion shouldn't happen unless medically necessary. (IE raped and do not want to deal with the mental association with the baby or the baby and/or mother will die if carried to full term)

IMHO If you are stupid enough to spread your legs and use no protection whatsoever, then you should deal with the consequences. Especially when most towns have a place to get free condoms. I mean seriously... If you can't handle all of the consequences, perhaps you shouldn't be having sex.

Yes - I do think it's irresponsible and uneducated to rely on abortion as a birth control method. However - I am a firm believer that a woman has the right to abort no matter what her situation. I don't think anyone should enforce some type of restriction on the number of abortions allowed per woman and thus allow more unwanted children to be brought into this world who could be abandoned in an unsafe place at birth (recent studies show that the safe haven laws aren't accomplishing what they intended) or eventually fed into the "system". I would however be a definete supporter of mandatory sterilization for certain women if such a law is ever instated. JMO.

Obviously the general consensus is that it's just wrong/stupid. Which I totally agree. As some of the PP's said too though, it's not as easy as putting a limit on it. Honestly if Roe V. Wade is here to stay (which it seems like it very well will be) I don't think there's a way to put any stipulations on it. All we can do is shake our heads at those morons.

It may be morally wrong and irresponsible. However, a women may end up having multiple D&Cs (ie the same method used in abortion) because of miscarriages, and her body being unable to expel the tissue. What happens then, if we restrict the number of abortions allowed? The tissue would cause her to sicken and die if it is not expelled from her body... and if you restrict the number, then a women who has had to have multiple D&Cs wouldn't be able to get the help she needs. Yes, I'm sure some will say it's different, but MEDICALLY it is the same procedure used in abortions, so if you ban it, then you're opening a huge can of worms with a potential for women to die because of a fight against a VERY small percentage of women who use abortion as "birth control".

Yes, it's wrong and irresponsible for women to use abortion as birth control. But putting limits on abortion is not the answer. I've said it time and time again; if someone is using abortion as birth control it is because they have NOT recieved the education they need when it comes to contraceptives and pregnancy. Really if the sex education was better in this country and not so focused on the highly unrealistic "abstinence till marriage and we won't teach you anything" program, we wouldn't have so many unwanted pregnancies. If you really want to put a stop to the small percentage of women who use it as birth control, or even unwanted pregnancies as a whole, fight for comprehensive sex education in schools. I could say a lot more, but I'd be going way off track... but anyway, putting limits on abortion won't do anything but make it worse. Better education will help. Just sayin'.
