    From my opinion, abortion should not be allowed, no matter at which stage of pregnancy. I understand some people might think at certain stage, the baby has not really been formed yet, so it shouldn't be considered as life. As a mother of 3, I have gone through pregnancy three times, and I always felt my baby is "alive" once I conceived. I couldn't imagine taking the baby's life away. Hence, to me, abortion is definitely a big NO.

    During my third pregnancy, when I was doing the blood test and there is high risk that my baby would have down syndrome. I was asked to seek for advice from another high risk pregnancy specialist, but it seems like he didn't understand me why I would just carry on my pregnancy even my baby had down syndrome. I know some go for abortion because they have found out the baby will not be healthy when he is born, but as the "life" is within my body, no matter how he is going to me, I just can't take his life away. To me, it's still a life, and I can't imagine myself killing him.

    I totally do not like the idea of abortion, well it's killing a human being so why would I want that right? Regardless on how a woman got pregnant, if she got raped or whatever, it is wrong in my opinion to take a baby's life. I also do not like the idea of condoms or pills.

    So you would prefer seeing the planet extremely over-populated with humans, causing the extinction of all other species and destroying our food chain and then, after mass cannibalization, starvation and the end of life on the planet? That 's what uncontrolled population growth will lead to.

    I'm prochoice, doesn't mean I like the idea of using it as birth control but it is a necessary evil and will happen wether it's legal or not. It's just safer when it's legal.

    I believe the woman should get an abortion as soon as possible, before it becomes a baby.

    I think abortion should be legal mainly because people deserve the right to do what the want. It's not your body, why should what you think affect someone else who may have a different thought? This is especially true for rape victims. Why should they be forced to carry something that reminds them of such an awful incident? I think after a certain point in a pregnancy abortion should be illegal but during the early stages it should be legal

    Well I don't want that to happen, even if a lot of babies are born everyday, a lot of people die everyday too. That creates some balance, I just don't think that killing something that has life would solve something.

    Usually babies that are aborted are not wanted for some reason...mom could be a drug addict, single and poor, an alcoholic...lots of reasons...and ive read about too many babies and toddlers being abused to the point of death, some thrown in a dumpster after being born.

    I'd rather see an aborted 16 week old fetus than a dead and abused one year old.

    I respect your opinion. Many people feel this same way.

    I just think that we consider the consequences of what we plan to do before doing things.

    Again, my biggest complaint is against government wanting to put its hands on the woman's body.

    Abortion remains a big evil no matter how those supporting the act try. Everyone of us was once a foetus and later developed to a full baby. If that is true then will certainly do not have a right to determine whether foetus lives or not.

    I believe abortion is wrong...well actually that killing of any kind in general is wrong. However, I think it is a stance that everyone has to make for themselves. Who am I to tell the rest of the world what is right and what is wrong? That's like saying that because I am Catholic, I think it should be illegal for people to be any other religion. Diversity is what makes the world a unique place.

    Why are you against contraception?

    Not only contraception but condoms help against STDs.

    I just do not like using these personally. I don't have to worry about getting STD since I do not have intercourse with almost any girl I can get my hands on.
