I totally feel the sameway. That is my biggest regret of my life.

Tax payers should never have to pay for a abortion If you want the abortion, pay for it yourself!

Seperate DNA, so no it's not her body that is getting ripped to sheds. If you want sisors in your own brian go ahead. How much sence does it take to not get pregnant? Let's see, ovulation typically happens 11 days after your period and hmm, there is this new thing called a condom or fifteen other contraceptives.

Personal responsibility people.

Wow, its hard to take you seriously with the lack of grammar and misspellings but ok, ill focus on the issue at hand. 1) you are grossly over exaggerating- most abortions occur in the first trimester and scissors are not even remotely involved. 2) BC can and does fail. 3) Not all women have regular periods- each body is different so nope, wrong again.

So for RAPE, I do NOT think it should be legal. Simply because it was not that child's fault; it was a poor choice on the "sperm donor", and I understand not wanting to look at your child everyday and be reminded of that very horrific incident, however that is what ADOPTION is for. I am a victim of rape, and had I gotten pregnant, I would NEVER have even considered having an abortion. To SAVE the MOM, yes I do think in that instance it SHOULD be legal, because if the mother's life is at risk, then there are two scenario's that could play out, both of which are sucky! One, the mother dies at child birth and the baby never has that type of bond..Two, the mother decides to not have an abortion and both her and the baby die. So either way, it's a lose lose situation, so for that I do think it should be legal. If I make anyone mad by posting this, my deepest apologies, but just stating how I feel.
Soooo, if it's not the child's fault then WHY would you give it up for adoption? What did the baby do for you to give it up?

That took a lot of guts to say and admit what you did...and I myself, though not in your position, found my self saying to myself....what if I got pregnant? I have two older children and think to myself, there is no way I could start over this late in my life! Would I have the child...yes I absoutely would, because there is no possible way that I could end a life because I was either irresponsible or careless or what ever, I feel you live with the consequesnces of the choices you make. I know that I would stick by this feeling because I had my first child when I was sixteen years old...so I already know there was no other choice for me and would be no other choice for me. I in no way am condemning you because hey,'walk a mile in my shoes, right?'But you bring up a good point that maybe if it weren't so easy to have an abortion it would make women stop and think twice about their choices. Many of lifes situations seem like the end of the world at the moment but later they are never even thought of again. I think back to how I felt...fifteen years old, pregnant, alone, and confused.....and to this day I thank God for that child! I thank God for not having that option sitting right in front of me, waving it's flag! What if I did not have him? Where and who would I be? I had no parental guidance so my path without my child would have been drugs. And I have an addictive personality so it would have been the very death of me. That child that I 'chose'to give life to...gave me my life in return. God works in mysterious ways...or for what ever religion you have..Karma, the stars, fate...Bad things that you would never wish in your life, sometimes turns into your own salvation. I cannnot speak for those who have been raped or other situations in which someone other than myself may have had to go through, so therefore this conversation is not in anyway aimed at those situations, but maybe if someone had to think twice and try a little harder to make a very hard and definitive decision then, maybe they would give a little more thought to that decision? I look at my son today....look at the yourself, look at the person next to you, look at your wife, husband, best friend....What if they were a choice and that person chose not to bring them into the world...just kinda makes you think? And to you who posted this...very brave to admit what you have gone through...like I said...things happen for a reason, I suppose, your choice and decision has come and gone and only you live with that every day...no opinion I or anyone has changes how you feel inside, and that's what every one should think about .

Agreed but then the same has to go for the children born instead as well.

Most states require a mandatory waiting period and provide certain information and counseling prior to the procedure as mandated by law. That is a double-sided hypothetical, what if the Colorado theater shooter had been aborted? What about Hitler? Bin Laden? Point being is, if my boyfriend was never born, I would never be the wiser and neither would he. I feel bad for people who regret their decision either way, as it is not an easy one to make. The majority of women who have had abortions whom I know of don't regret their decision.

and let me be clear no one should EVER EVER be pressured into an abortion- EVER.
