1: The act of terminating an action or process.

2: The act of killing an unborn baby. Those who oppose abortion call themselves pro-life, those who support it call themselves pro-choice. Pro-choicrs seem to think that abortion is a perfectly acceptable and indeed preferable substitute for adoption or contraception.

Contrary to pro-choice beliefs, a baby in a womb is NOT an extension of the mother's body. As soon as the nuclie of the ovum and sperm fuse, they create a new diploid nucleus within a discrete cell which happens to live of the mother's body. Logically and scientifically, life begins at conception.

One of the most frequent claims by pro-choicers is that, by pro-life logic, masturbation is genocide because it kills thousands of sperm, and they are human cells. This is true, but they are haploid and have the same genome as the father, therefore they are cells of HIM, not HIM+HER=NEW. Therefore, masturbation which kills sperm is not genocide, but self-harm; no different to cutting oneself, except that it feels good.

Unfortunately, a number of born-agains and Bush supporters have given the great numbers of rational pro-lifers a bad name.
I'm pregnant, yay! Oh wait, I suddenly don't want this baby! I know! I'll have an abortion.

The legalized murdering of your unborn child, usually within the first three months of pregnancy. Sure, you're against war, violence, and hate; but you sure don't give a crap if you kill your soon-to-be-born son or daughter before it EVEN has the chance to LIVE!
Have you considered giving up the kid for adoption as an alternative to abortion? There are countless American couples out there who are unable to have children, and are so determined that they go overseas to places like Korea in order to adopt children. Why not give your unwanted baby to one of these loving couples, huh?

Abortion is the act of killing an unborn child by removing it from the womb before it can survive. A disgusting act, it's only acceptable if the mother's life is endangered by the pregnancy. However, thanks to a truly insane ruling by the Supreme Court in 1973, abortion can be performed for any reason. Most of the time, it's done by women who don't want the responsibility of raising childredn. Well if that's the reason, why did you have sex? I mean, if you can't raise a child, you have no business getting laid.
Why have an abortion when you can avoid having sex in the first place?

"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)"

...Or you can take the morning-after pill.


Although incest is disgusting, if it is a consensual relationship, it should be treated like any other relationship.

"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."

This is true, but this is why abortion should be regulated with common sense, not completely banned.

"An interesting contradiction in terms is that supposed "pro-lifers" also tend to be in favor of the death penalty"

There is absolutely nothing contradicting about opposing the death of an innocent child and supporting the death of a child molester, murderer, terrorist, etc.

"and have a real bad habit of shooting doctors and blowing up abortion clinics."

And how many times does this happen compared to those who peacefully protest it?

"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)."

Except sperm are simply a cell and have no heartbeat or feel pain.

"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."

Okay, what's the difference? It's not developed enough? If that's the case, we can kill a five year old because it's not as developed as a twenty year old.

"but it's a woman's right protected under the law."

And what about the child's right to life? Life, liberty, property, not Choice, liberty, property.

Abortion is despicable.

The act of unmercifully and oftentimes brutally killing a LIVING HUMAN BEING. Sure it isn't developed yet, but who's to say it can't feel pain. NOBODY. Why should a poor little baby suffer because of her mothers mistakes. That's just plain wrong and unfair. They say that women should have the right to do this...Ok...What about little baby girls that are killed? Don't you think they deserve the right TO FUCKING LIVE? I'm not a right wing republican either. I hate war. I also hate the fact that 4000 innocent little beings are killed daily. It's bullshit. How about all these dumb cunts that don't use condoms or birth control take responsibility for the consequences of their actions. The only time abortion should be allowed is in the case of rape. Then, well, one can understand why a woman wouldn't want to carry a baby that was forcefully brought unto her.
If you feel that abortion is perfectly ok, please goto google dot com and select images. Type in abortion. When you're done puking, tell me what you think of it.

The act of getting rid of something(s) you don't feeling like dealing with.
I aborted my colon in a Manhattan alley with the help of a homeless, tophat-wearing transexual and a strategically bent hanger. At first, the damage done to my psyche far outweighed that inflicted on my internal organs. Now, I'm pretty much over it. I'm even thinking of eating at McDonald's again.

abortion is killing a helpless devolping baby that didnt do anything to deserve it. I am against abortion but i do understand if the girl was raped or has medical problems but other then stuff like that then i disagree. Most girls have an abortion because they dont want to get caught being pregnant or they just dnt want the child and they didnt plan it. Well i have a better solution for you: dont have sex. Why make the helpless baby suffer for ur dumb mistakes. What im also against is that the guy has no say in what the girl does(and im a girl). That is stupid its the boys baby too and i understand its the girls body n its her choice but like i said u should of thought of that before u had sex. If there was reasonable cause to have an abortion and the guy disagrees thats where it would be the girls choice but not if the girl simply dosent want to have it. Another thing if you dont want the baby then put it up for adoption and give it to to people who would die for children because they cant have children and u have the privalge to carry a baby and you are being ungrateful. Another thing i am not saying this because of religion this is so much more then religion. Imagine u were that baby and u had to be killed because ur mom didnt want you. And lets say u do wanna be dumb and have an abortion because u simply dont want the baby then how about u have it before 3 months before it develops. It dosent take you three months to do an abortion. and i understand that girls cant support a baby ok then set it up for adoption not kill the poor thing and i dont care what any one says abortion is killing/murdering because its not a toy that in your body its a living thing and dont say all this bullshit where its not fully a baby and blah blah you guys know that its a baby but r to damn stupid to admit it.
girl: OH MY GOD AMY, TOM GOT ME PREGNANT, my parents are gonna kill me.
Amy: Then get an abortion and kill the baby they wont find out.
girl: yeah your right but lets go in 2 months when the baby is fully developed.
