I voted other because I am sort of on the fence really. I think there are so many different ways to feel about some aspects of abortion. I wouldn't have an abortion if I fell pregnant by accident but I think I would if it was a product of rape. This may make some people mad but I think depending on the type of disability that I might abort then too. I can't know that for sure yet because I have never and god willing, I will never be in the position to have to make that decision. I feel that women should have the choice to get an abortion if they want to but I also think partial birth abortion is horribly wrong and should never be performed. There may be reasons for it but not many that I could fathom or that would need to wait for such a late stage to be discovered. I also don't think that it should be used as birth control. I know this is not typical but I can't stand the idea of women having sex unprotected and then just going and getting abortions when they fell pregnant as if it was just a standard, no big deal simple procedure. I knew someone like that once.

If we are talking strictly about abortion (not capital punishment) then I am pro-life. What I find interesting about this debate is that it is being argued by people (on both sides) who had the opportunity to be born.

Depends on the situation...
I am pro choice when it comes to rape or something like that.

I voted pro life both on this poll and the polling place. Killing a child in the first trimester is no different from killing a child in the second or third trimester. It's still the same child. My daughter at 6 weeks gestation and 6 weeks old (now 22 months- I can't believe how fast it's going!) is and always will be my daughter. She is not my body and never was and never will be. I loved the comment someone made about those who are debating here were all given the opportunity to be born.

I chose other because I, personally, am very pro-life. i do not agree with abortion. but i do feel, however, that it whould be legal because whether its legal or not women are still going to feel desperate enough to do it and do it by any means whether thats using a coat hanger or what have you so they should atleast be given a place where they can atleast protect themselves from invection and lessoning the rist of losing their life as well as the baby's

i am prolife, to a point.

i don't think woman should use it as a last ditch effort due to carelessnes. i.e. not chosing to use any form of birth control.

i don't think people should be having recreational sex without a back up plan in case pregnancy is to happen (back up plan NOT being abortion).

i don't think woman should use it as an excuse because "he wouldn't use a condom" or "his condom broke" etc. we shouldn't be putting out sexual health in the hands of men to begin with.

i do think though if a woman is raped, or in a dangerous violent situation (like an abusive husband) that it would be ok.

I'm as pro-life as it can get. For myself there is no reason to end the life of your child. It's not my body that is affecting but the life of my son or daughters. After having my two daughters just the thought of the myself willingly arranging for either one of them to be aborted makes me sick to my stomach. I see it as no different as if you would walk your 5 year old child into the dr office years down the road and have them go through the same process your unborn baby would go through if he or she was still in the womb. I love my girls as much as I did when they were inside of me and I will always do what I can to protect them, that's my job as their mother. If it's a life and death situation for myself I would give my last breath to bring my angel into the world. I know everyone has their own reasons for what they do or what they believe, that is just my view point on it. I'm not trying to change anyone's opinion on it and no one could every alter mine. God has blessed with my little angels and I trust He knew what he was doing.

Obligatory other since I can't check "both".

I believe that more people would choose to raise unexpected miracles if society supported that choice instead of stigmatizing it.

I also believe that more lives would be lost if Roe vs Wade was overturned and terrified teens had to resort to coathangers and back alleys again.

Those who do not learn from their history are doomed to repeat it

My own lost-and-found loved ones were not adopted out to save their lives; they were adopted out to punish their mothers.

Pro-Choice for others, I think that each person should have the right to decide for themselves.

Personally I couldn't do it, I couldn't take the emotional torment I have seen people close go through because of regret. I think that killing is killing and even if I had been raped I would keep the child, it is not the childs fault.
I have watched people close to me not be able to conceive and personally I would much rather adopt out a child to a loving family whom desperately wants a child they cant have rather then abort if the situation came to a choice.

I guess if I had to choose between the two, I'd say I'm pro-choice. I don't think its right to force someone to keep a pregnancy and bring a child into the world if their heart isn't in it, or there's a medical reason, etc. However, with that being said, I find it absolutely revolting when I see people treat abortion like its just another form of birth control. They can go out and have as much careless sex as they want with the attitude of "Its okay. If I get pregnant, I'll just have another abortion! " rather than doing the responsible thing and just using protection from the beginning. I see it a LOT these days, especially in schools with teenagers. The 16 year old who gets an abortion for the 3rd time while her mother stands back and gives her *** pats, and tells her its AAAAWWWWWWWWRIGHT. My mom would have beaten me senseless if I had to get an abortion even once at that age.

So, in short, while I understand sometimes abortions are nessecary, and its not our place to make that decision for someone else, I wish people would have a higher regard for life and just practice being responsible with sex so they don't end up in that situation to begin with.
