Always. If a woman wants to have an abortion and we do not let her, do you know who will suffer? The Child. She will try to do damage during the pregnancy, possibly causing irreversible damage to the fetus. Let her have a safe medical procedure, the child will not live a life of HELL just because someone believes its wrong and tries to outlaw it. Let the person that has the abortion, deal with their maker.

On another note, there are times that it is medically necessary for the MOther or the fetus , that the fetus not live. This is a health issue.

Men get cirmcumsized for helath, cleanliness issues. What if we passed a law telling them that they could not do that to their own body? Not fair. We may not like it but to tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body is a slippery slope to losing other freedoms.

This is murder, not a form of birth control.

I agree abortion is murder. I agree that a woman should have the right to make her own choice and the right to take it up with her God when her time comes.

I agree that if we don't allow girls to have abortions they may go to extrodinary measures to get rid of the fetus. Laws won't stop them. Banning won't stop abortions. It will only stop the doctors from being able to practice it legally.

I can't imagine what kind of messes we'll see if there are laws put against having a doctor perform the abortion. I hope the babies don't suffer more then they already do!!!

There needs to be better sex education going on at schools and homes for both young men and women. And I don't mean Jr. High or 9th grade, elementary kids. Kindgarden and up! Girls are getting pregnant in Jr. High and it's to damn late.
Talk to your kids and their significates. Make sure they know about birth controls!
seriously

I would rather be murdered before birth then live with someone that constantly abused me, molested/raped me and told me everyday I was worthless.
Are you going to be the one to save this child, wrap your arms around it and keep it safe. NO, you will be not be found.

So while the child is being abused by the MOther that did not want and is now, taking her mistake out on the child, you will have never given this child another thought.

At yet, you set there and pass judgement.

You are right. I have had this discussion with my school. They want to teach abstaintance only--no birth control or DISEASE control safety. All the while, the halls are filled with pregnant girls and boys that are passing diseases around like kleenex. All because some guy on the school board wanted to impress his religious views on everyone else. And while I agree with the Bible in my own lifestyle, the reality is that others believe and behave differently. Help the kids, help themselves.

By the way, the guy on the School Board--his son is the biggest screw-around and the one passing diseases according one poor girl that was infected by him. Its amazing. Those that Judge, either do nothing to help solve problems or are the ones that are creating them.

This is so very true. So many want to force a woman to have a child that she may not want or have the means to support, yet they also want to take away public assistance to help that family. Supporting a child is from birth to 18 years!

You can try to "justify" the act of abortion, but the fact remains that it is murder. Those who support the "right" to "choose", as well as those who commit the murder or aide in the murder of an unborn child, will have to answer to our God. I believe he will NOT be merciful!

I am the mother of adopted children. The only "good and blessed" choice their biological mothers ever made was "THE RIGHT TO LIFE". God Bless.

Seriously you have been very blessed. You are correct those who support and commit this murder are the ones that will have to answer to Him.
The biological mothers of your children obviously had their heads right. Think about the mothers out there that don't though.
Do you read the paper, watch the news? There are abuse charges against parents every single day. Babies are abused, murdered and thrown away after birth. That Cassidy King who's new born was found in a Higbee pond just a couple months ago. I know a woman who let her boyfriend kill her newborn by feeding it crack. She didn't find a friend in me and I really wish I hadn't met her. They are monsters and if they have the will to abort they have the will to kill if they can't.
You have the right to vote how you want. I hope you sleep well, when you read about all the baby killings after they take away the right for these murders to have abortions. You don't really hear about the abortions but when they get the chance to kill the born, breathing babies you will get the chance to read all about it.
There's women out there that don't support abortions but will kill the kid after. Casey Anthony comes to mind.
Personally I think this is by far a more vicious act then abortion.
Yes it is a sick world we live in. But who are you to make the laws and other peoples choices? Are you going to be the judge of whether they get to meet God?

The truth is that in a perfect world, abortion would not be needed. The REALITY here on earth is that abortion is a right that an individual has. That person will answer to GOd. Possibly, God will forgive them, so therefore, they will not "pay" for anything.
Who are you to tell someone that has an abortion that they will go to hell. Ever hear of God being a forgiving God?

Abortion is not birth control, however, there are times when an abortion may be the best plan of action in a difficult situation. That is between that person and God. However, I am glad that on Earth, as a woman, I have the freedom to choose.

If you take that right away from women, then please impose a punishment for pregnancy on the man, every man that fathers a child and cannot provide for it, then his penis should be cut off.

It is obvious you have not read the bible. God is a loving God, and he is also a vengeful God. Your truly willing to live against the word on Earth, and serve eternity in hell?

Simply done with this argument..... You can do what "feels" right, or you can read your bible and do "what" is right.

I see your words but am blinded by your weird NEED to judge others and use the bible as your tool to do so. Therefore, you have just committed a sin. Just like those that have an abortion. Also, notice that my last statement, I spoke about the MEN not taking care of their children and you just glided by that fact, just spewing the word of God without much thought to what you are saying. Notice you did not mention the fact that these men that help create these pregnancies do not live up to what is expected of them....which is a sin as well. However, you chose to pin in on the woman and make it that she is the only sinner here. I will debate no more with you because I think that you are a weirdo that JUDGES OTHERS (an actual sin) and you do not have compassion for others. Its hard for stupid people to show compassion because they normally cannot feel empathy or understand what others are going thru. My God is an awesome GOd and he knows that I am only human, that I will make mistakes and that if I repent , he will forgive me.

God will tell me what he wants me to do and not to do. Didn't the whore wash Jesus's feet, admit that she was a whore and Jesus forgave her and told her she would go to Heaven? Didn't he tell the WHORE that he loved her and forgave her? A whore!

Didn't YOU read that BIBLE LESSON?

GOD IS A MERCIFUL GOD and to the poster SERIOUSLY, please do not teach people otherwise.

May God have mercy on your soul or will you be judged as harshly as you are judging others? I do not know the answer, nor is it MY PLACE to say. That is between you and GOD. Just like a woman who has an abortion, or a man that cheats on his wife, they will have to answer to GOD. May God bless you and soften your heart. The END

I was asked and begged to have an abortion when I made a stupid mistake and got pregnant at 14. My child is now grown, married and saves lives every day. I think it wasnt a choice but a blessing and would never give up on the fight for life!

I am so glad you made that decision. It must of been very hard with people pressuring you. You are a strong person. However, that is you and your situation. I had a college roommate that was attacked and there were numerous attackers. IT WAS BRUTAL. Of course, the poor girl got pregnant. She was a nice Christian girl and prayed and prayed about her plight. It was her personal decision to abort. It has been 2o years now and she has confided in me since, that she made the right decision and feels that God has forgiven her. Since then, God has blessed her with three healthy children, and she gives endlessly to her community, her husband and children and to GOD.
She was able to get counseling and tried to move beyond her ordeal. HOWEVER,she has told me on numerous occassions, that if she would of had to carry her attacker's baby......that she would of killed herself.
If you only knew what a wonderful, good, christian person she is and know that she would not of done this but she did not think that she could mentally handled carrying and birthing her rapist baby. I, for one, am glad that she had a choice. I also believe that GOd has forgiven her.

If you do not want to have an abortion, then please don't. However, do not take that right away from others in their time of need.
I do not drink or smoke and I would not care if it all were outlawed but as Americans--PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT to do those things as long as they do not infringe on other's rights. This poor attacked girl's decision did not infringe upon your rights, so please, don't infringe upon others.

lets be honest here.. if you are even having to consider abortion (as yourself or with pressure from parents), no matter what age, it is probably because you KNOW you can't give the necessary support and care that a child needs and deserves. I commend anyone that is able to make that decision about themselves. And another lets me honest moment.. The last thing we need is another person on the government dole...

What's the name of the woman that slashed her babies throat? Read the baby will survive :) what a future though, I pray they baby will be able to adapt and overcome! You will read a lot more of these stories if you take away the right to choose though. As sick and twisted as this story about this slashed babies throat, it turned out to be a least a survivors story. There will be a lot that won't! Hope you can live with that those of you that want to choose for every individual woman whether she wants to be a mother or not and then tell her what her choices are! Who do you think you are to be the judge and jury on this??? Seriously!!!

Abortion is no different than slashing a childs throat. Both methods end in the same result..... Both are murder. It's just that simple..... Those who believe in "right to choose" complicate this in order to justify their actions.
