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

what would you 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.
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.

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.
