A last resource for women with an unwanted pregnancy, either because pregnancy is not legal in her state, she is underage or if she does not want anybody to find out.

Abortion is a procedure done for various reasons, some examples may include, health issues, because she is too young to care for a child, they do not have enough money, the woman was raped or the pregnancy is due to incest or because there is nobody to support them through it or because the unborn baby is stillborn or has a serious disease.

Abortion is not an issue that is taken lightly by the mother, and is very stressful for them to go through.

It may be unfair for men in the church to make these decisions, as it should really be a woman’s choice, and coming down to it men don’t really have to deal with these things all the time. In some situations it may be the only option and nobody should be ever judged for doing this.

Others may say it is murder of an innocent child.

It is important to make up your own decision about abortions, but nobody should ever be judged as sometimes it is the only option.

It may be important also to think outside the square with this issue and not only follow what you have been taught or what the church says, or even, if your on the other side, your friend had an abortion and you think it’s fine. You need to think and maybe accept that in some situations it is necessary and in others it is not.
case example : a 14 year old girl was raped on the street and just found out she is Pregnant. She has a serious heart condition and her family does not have much money and is not supportive. Her dad finds out and accuses her of lying about being raped and kicks her out of home. she thinks she may have to get an abortion but she is religious and doesn't believe in abortion. She doesn't know what to do

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.

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.
