I understand that people feel the fetus's life is more important than the mothers.. So how do you justify the pain and tramua families go through because of an abortion, as a reason to judge them further?
I don't think putting limitations on abortion is a bad thing. I don't know a lot about Nicaragua but I believe it is a very poor country. How do woman there afford abortions? Are they gvt funded? If the country is gonna ban abortion I think they should be helping these woman with BC but that justs seems unrealistic if it is a poor country.
Crunchy if there is one concept I'd like to expand on..
One of the reasons I don't like the way abortions are conducted in the USA is because the health care as a whole is based on profit.. I don't understand how it's not an ethical issue as it is. Here in Canada, health care isn't based on profit. So when I see abortion as a health issue between a doctor and a patient, it's because I don't have those profit ideas that the USA has for their health care system as a whole. I think for you too, if you seen issue of abortion without money being attached to it, you might be able to see it with a different perspective. I hope that helps too.
Well, I don't know if I would be for a complete ban on abortion. I think in most cases, an abortion can be prevented, but if the mother is going to die, I would never be the one to say she couldn't have one. Are there really that many women who would die if they didn't have an abortion? (I'm not trying to be snotty here.....this is an honest question).
An abortion is about a mother and a doctor's decision ~ not about the judgement of others and courts involvement.[/b]
that is where pro-choicers and pro-lifers differ we see a third person who is involved and is completely innocent and has no say in something that means life or death to them.
I disagree. I see some pro-lifers as believing that third "person" is more important than the mother.. hence why they can justify the lack of empathy to the mother.
