A procedure that may be allowed in some cases ie. rape health concerns ect. it has been overused by people who instead of practicing safe sex they use it a a form of birth control.
It should be allowed in rape and health issues but if it's just some girl who doesn't like condoms then she should carry the baby and give it up for adoption if she still does not want it.

1) The, usually surgical, removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus in order to end a pregnancy.

2) A standpoint over which democratic and republican parties argue with no actual consideration for the lives involved. Mysterious figures seem to be popping up everywhere about the numbers and percentages of abortions, such as "Rape victims account for less than 1% of all abortions." This information is surprising, seeing as most rapes aren't even filed (and this informations is absolutely, and completely, necessary to make any claim, such that has been made), and most -- if not all -- parties that perform abortion don't require a "Q&A" session as to why the abortion is being performed.

3) Something that isn't anyone's business outside of the woman getting the abortion.
1) "Alison had an abortion."

2) Republican: "Let's argue about abortion, because there's nothing worthwhile that needs to be addressed -- like the fact that hundreds are being killed overseas in this war that we won't let go. Killing people is okay, so long as they've lived long enough to believe differently than me. Yay God!"

or, if I may be so bold to quote the song of Roland:

"Paiens ont tort et Chretiens ont droit."

(For our non-ancient-French speakers: "Pagans are wrong, and Christians are right".)

3) M: "Sue's says she's going to be gone next Friday, and she's been acting really weird since she broke up with Kyle -- do you think she's getting an abortion?"
T: "It's not your business, and if she wanted us to know, she'd tell us. What was the Latin homework last night?"
M: "Page ninety-five."

If you look up the word abortion, it's original meaning is actually "an abomination."

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 number of abortions carried out since Roe V. Wade was passed is estimated around 40 million. The actual numbers could very well be higher as people don't usually divulge this information. Imagine how many of those murdered unborn children could have grown up to become excellent leaders, scientists, doctors, and helpers for society.

Simply put, the act of murdering a helpless little baby. Pro-choice activists feel that whether or not a woman should carry a child to full term should be her choice, but what they seem to forget is that the woman made her choice. She chose to have sex. Every person knows the risk you take when you have sex. Even a young child can understand that. That risk especially increases when you have sex without protection. So tell me, where exactly is it that a woman isn't getting her right to choose? If she isn't ready to deal with the consequences, then she isn't ready for sex. It is not fair for the child to be punished because the mother screwed up.
Now people are going to argue with me, "but what about in the cases of rape and incest?" Let's look at that, shall we? Honestly, how many of the abortions carried out are actually for that reason? Probably less than 1%. Women use it as their form of birth control. Often times, they have more than one. I honestly don't see how anyone can live with themselves after murdering a baby. If you don't want the child, there are plenty of loving and responsible people that do. Have the baby and give it up for adoption. There is no shame in better a couple's life, as well as a baby.
I was irresponsible when I had sex and got pregnant. I don't want it so I will end its life by having an abortion.

Killing of an unborn child. Unborn not meaning dead, but simply in the womb. Many people believe it should be legal soley because of rape, incest, and when it endangers the mothers life. Little do these people know, those cases make up around 7% of abortions performed. Should laws be based on exceptions? no. Should abortion continue to be easilly excessable to whom ever needs one? no. In fact, Many people also think that teenagers should have the right to choose, especially if their family income is low. I guess they dont know that most of teenagers who have abortions come from a family setting where the yearly income was 60,000 dollars or higher. So agian, No other law is based on exceptions, why should abortion be?
i killed my child through an abortion today because I want to make women look bad because we can't handle silly little problems and keep our legs closed.
