Terminating something that usually incomplete and/or unwanted.

In most cases, an abortion is terminating an unwanted pregnancy. Not because the mother wnats to kill the baby, but because she is not ready for a child, doesn't want a child, or some other reason.

Too many abortions have been carried out in back-alley clinics with unsafe methods and ignorant providers. Women have gotten terribly sick and died because of botched abortions.

A fetus has only been in the world for a few months while the mother has been in the world for years. Both would be missed should one of them die, but the mother would be leaving so much should she be lost.

Abortions, contrary to those who oppose it, actually does help children; it reduces the number of abused/neglected children; if the parents didn't want the baby and end up having it, they (the parents) would become frustrated by the fact that they had a child that they didn't intend to have, leading to neglect and abuse of the child. With abortion, the child won't have to endure the abuse.

Too many "oops" babies have been born and life made hard for the child and the parents; it's the contraceptive, abortion, or adoption.
Abortion must be accessible to all and be made safer so that women won't die or become sick from a botched or faulty abortion.

If abortion is killing a human being, then male masturbation is a genocide, isn't it?

The act of terminating a life before he or she has had a chance for natural survival. Also a symptom of a society that has failed women. The rate of abortions in the United States could be reduced with logical prevention measures such as single parent housing at universities, more sex education in schools, better state adoption laws and awareness, and better general social support for single parents.
She'd heard that giving up her kid would be too hard, so Jenna decided to have an abortion.

murder for profit
The doctor liked his position of performing abortions, because there were so many people wanting them, it made him rich.

The mass murder of many unborn babies.
I was too cheap to spend 50 cents on a condom, and as a result I have decided to kill my child through an abortion.

The act of terminating a task or objective before it is completed.

The act of terminating the life of an offspring before it is developed enough to leave the womb. Wouldn't be such a big issue if the vast majority of people who undergo it didn't make the stupid decision of fucking without thinking ahead about the consequences, such as getting pregnant as a result.
That woman already had eight abortions, and she is STILL having recreational sex without use of contraceptives. What a whore!

The killing of a FETUS, not a "cluster of cells" not one cell, a FETUS, the doctor uses scalpels to scrape the fetus out and crushes the skull of the infant. Dead before born. Why isn't Masturbation considered Genocide? There is no conception, sperm cells die daily and are renewed. Women have a choice though? Actual percentage of U.S. abortions in "hard cases" are estimated as follows: in cases of rape or incest, 0.3%; in cases of risk to maternal health or life, 1%; and in cases of fetal abnormality, 0.5%. About 98% of abortions in the United States are elective, including socio-economic reasons or for birth control. This includes about 25% for primarily economic reasons. Meaning that Abortion is a way out for people not willing to live up to their mistakes, and would rather have cold metal pressed to the skulls of their child. Honestly i don't see why people support this, it IS murder, maybe the kid will be a killer maybe they will blow the world up, but remember you wouldn't even be reading this if you were aborted.
All of our sons and our daughters are dead and the birth that we stole, our abortion.
