The removal of an unborn baby.
Really, in the physical life, there is nothing wrong with abortion. Though it is seen as just purely wrong to abort a baby when the woman having it was simply having sex without protection and not caring, most see it wrong because of their religious beliefs. Since the Bible hasn't so touched up on the subject of abortion directly, people have seen it fit for them to add to the scriptures and such and call it murder, which in fact is wrong according to the Bible.

Really, abortion is considered right overall when it is found that the baby will die along with the wife, will be born into a life a pain, or is the product of rape, but even here many "Pro-lifers" insist this is wrong and that it is murder and want it banned, when it simply starts up the same protestes from "Pro-choicers" and "Back alley" abortions.

"Pro-choicers" also say that if abortion is wrong, then maturbation is wrong (Which is "unclean" to the Bible, not a sin, incase you don't know). Though yes, this is the death of sperm itself, most "Pro-Lifers" say that this is only half of the equation for life, and doesn't count.

All in all, I have this to say to you women out there:
It doesn't matter if it's your choice at the moment. Don't be a whore. Use protection. You'll only need to do this when you really have to, and only unknowing, extremist "Pro-lifers" will oppose your decisions, which are a matter of death without it anyways.
If you fall into the religious category, and you cannot go about through life with a child without bringing pain to the baby, you, and others, put it up for adoption.
Not only is it a bit more "moral", but it won't be murder, and all in all, adoption is always a much more viable choice.
But that's the thing.
All in all, it is YOUR choice.
There are three, though.
Birth and Parenting.
If you can't care for the baby without pain or death brought to him or her due to your environment or the cause (Mainly rape), mark out Birth.
If you, the baby, or both will die if birthed, mark out Adoption and Birth.

If the above don't apply, make your choice based off your beliefs, and what you'd feel best with, not what others feel.
It's none of their buisness.

Also, use protection if you don't want a child. PERIOD!

The act of ending an unwanted pregnancy.
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.

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 termination of a pregnancy. Abortion, at the very least, needs to be left open as an option in cases of rape (so as not to further victimize the woman by forcing her to carry the child of her assailant), incest, and when the mother's life is in danger (as in an ectopic or tubal pregnancy, which will kill the mother if carried to term). Dangerous "back alley" abortions would also result if abortion were banned completely. An interesting contradiction in terms is that supposed "pro-lifers" also tend to be in favor of the death penalty, and have a real bad habit of shooting doctors and blowing up abortion clinics. It's also very difficult to decide exactly when life begins. By Pro-lifer logic, masturbation would probably also be considered murder, as sperm are technically alive and somewhat human (haploid). What they don't seem to understand is that there's a difference between something that is merely "human" and a full-blown, sentient "person." Admittedly, abortion is despicable when used merely as an alternative form of birth control (instead of the pill or a condom), but it's a woman's right protected under the law.
Diana opted to have an abortion, rather than carry her pregnancy to term.
