Topic: Abortion Discussion


I thought I would open up a poll about this since I have been hearing alot about this lately.

Then again, I have made seperate vote options for the men and for the women.

So you all male types vote on the options that has (Men) in it and the women vote for the option that has (Women) in it.

And if you choose "Other Opinions" please post your thoughts about this and why you chosed "Other Opinions".

I am for abortion, since I believe it's up to every couple to decide wether they want it or not.

But the guy also has the right to decide about it, it's not a one person thing.

It takes two to make it, so it will take two to decide it.

(Except for rape cases where I believe the woman has every right to do an abortion.)

Do you agree/disagree?

according to the law it isnt murder due to the case that it hasnt been born yet. So you cant kill what hasnt lived yet.

Well, So should women not have sex because of the chances to get pregnant?

A few women do get pregnant even if they're on pills, so what should happen then?

So sex is not something for pleasure and intimacy then? It's just for breeding up your offspring?

Itís up to every couple if they want it or not? Now I may be a simple minded person, born and raised in Arkansas, but we had birth control! If a man and women are mature enough to have sex, then they must take the responsibilities that follow! Abortion is not a ďget out of jail freeĒ card.

I have a two year old son. I was 21 when I found out. My wife and I werenít married at the time. Was a scared? You bet I was. I didnít know how I was going to tell my family back home, let alone hers. We had the choice to abort and get on with our lives as normal, forget the whole thing had ever occurred however, WE took responsibilities for our actions.

We now have another child on the way. Once again, it wasnít planned. Once again, I stepped up to the plate and was a man about it. Who am I to ďlegallyĒ kill a child? ďBut itís not considered a child until itís been in the womb for ďXĒ amount of weeks.Ē Thatís the cowardsí way out people! We just saw the first ultrasounds of our baby. At seven weeks, it has a beating heart. Are you telling me itís not a child? I have news for you, it is! ITíS MY CHILD AND IíM PROUD OF IT!!!

Like everything else in life, there are exceptions. I believe if a woman is rapped, she should be able to abort. God forbid, but if that happened to my wife, I wouldnít want her to carry that mans baby for nine months. Also, if it can be proven without a doubt, a mother should be able to abort if the baby will cause life-threatening injuries during the pregnancy. NOT FOR BIRTH CONTROL!

Unfortunately, itís not against the law to kill a child. Until it is, people will continue to abuse the freedoms given to us by our forefathers. Just keep one thing in mind. How worse off would this world be if you mother aborted you, If you didnít get to make a choice to live or die?

Have sex if you want and for whatever reason. Youíre not stupid. You know what could happen. What youíre saying makes no sense at all.

For example, take riding in a car. (Sex) Itís fun to drive as fast as we can, right? Well, right around the corner you have an accident. Did you have a seatbelt (birth control) on? If you did, then your chances of surviving just increased. (not having a baby) If you didnít, well, we know the outcome. (having a baby) But why is it they sometimes UNBUCKLE dead bodies? (accident) It's the choice you make BEFORE you drive that car.

Well, FutureOKtrooper, you want it to be legal to abort in case of rape, but not in case of an accidental pregnancy? Then you'll get people saying they've been raped to be allowed to get an abortion. I don't think that'll help.
And what if the mother isn't capable of taking care of the child in one way or another?
I'm not saying that an unborn child doesn't have rights, I'm saying it does.... and so do the parents. It will always be a tense topic... but I voted "no"
