A Right that only a woman has in some countries to kill her own unborn child as a matter of choice. If that same woman attempted to kill herself authorities would step in and save her from herself and place her under psychiatric care. (That makes sense) Some people would have you believe that abortion benefits society by relieving government of the cost of raising that child. This could be a true statement if you knew the future of that child (Maybe a Bill Gates). I wonder if those same people would rationalize the killing of handicapped & poor people who's situation we already know. Some people also can not see the difference between the death penalty and abortion. In one case the victim didn't do anything to deserve the punishment and in the other case the victim chose to take the life of someone else, therefore in his mind killing of another must be alright so the killing of him should be alright too. (Do unto others as you would have them do unto you and I'm not religious, just makes sense) So first admit abortion is killing and then say it's OK to kill your own child. At least be honest about your decision and the laws this country passes. As far as the act of masturbation being killing, you are leaving the cells to die but the last time I check the killing of sperm wasn't a crime. But by the way some Liberals think maybe they could find away to make those "evil men" pay for their actions. I'm sure if a woman did something like that there would some excuse like "I didn't know better" or "I couldn't help myself" or "It's my body, I'll do what I want". In ending I personally believe abortion should be used in self defense only (To stop the killing or suffering of the mother). In the case of rape, a D&C right after the crime should prevent the pregnancy. Whatever decisions you make in life please choose logic over emotion you'll be happier with your decisions.
I'm having an abortion because The Supreme Court said I could! I want to do what I want, not what's RIGHT.

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.

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.
