And that usually reflects on the new, modern definition of abortion, which is to terminate a pregnancy because it is unwanted or inconvenient for the parents.
I think abortion should only be used when the life of the mother is at risk if the baby is born. Otherwise, abortion is clearly murder.
Listen up, people. This is an old lesson told many times before - the safest way to avoid getting pregnant is to avoid having sex. The second safest way is to use the rhythm method plus a condom just-in-case. The third safest way is to avoid unprotected sex, and to use a rubber or a diaphragm or some spermicide or some kind of pill.
But if you become pregnant, it is definitely morally wrong to proceed with an abortion if the reason is simply because it's an "unwanted pregnancy" or because "you can't afford it."
There are other options, such as adoption, that can be used. Also, I believe that in the long run, the parents will both be more satisfied and feel better if they avoid the abortion route.
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.
