Terminating something that usually incomplete and/or unwanted.

In most cases, an abortion is terminating an unwanted pregnancy. Not because the mother wnats to kill the baby, but because she is not ready for a child, doesn't want a child, or some other reason.

Too many abortions have been carried out in back-alley clinics with unsafe methods and ignorant providers. Women have gotten terribly sick and died because of botched abortions.

A fetus has only been in the world for a few months while the mother has been in the world for years. Both would be missed should one of them die, but the mother would be leaving so much should she be lost.

Abortions, contrary to those who oppose it, actually does help children; it reduces the number of abused/neglected children; if the parents didn't want the baby and end up having it, they (the parents) would become frustrated by the fact that they had a child that they didn't intend to have, leading to neglect and abuse of the child. With abortion, the child won't have to endure the abuse.

Too many "oops" babies have been born and life made hard for the child and the parents; it's the contraceptive, abortion, or adoption.
Abortion must be accessible to all and be made safer so that women won't die or become sick from a botched or faulty abortion.

killing an innocent child who did nothing except being the very example of a miracle of life. The very sole person making this decision is an idiot. (Unless you were rape; In that case I'm very sorry that you had to go through that but please still take the time to think about adoption for a good, loving family).
Melissa thought about abortion....but realized that the child that she was carrying would be better off with a loving family.

a way to terminate a human being's life.

The joining of a man's sperm with a woman's egg, a zygote is formed, thus, the very first stage of a human being's life. All information is present at this stage for the human person to grow into an embryo, fetus, infant, toddler, child, teenager, and adult. There are not separate distinctions of the human species during its first stages of growth.
A rose's seed can only be a rose. That seed cannot be a fruit, vegetable, animal, or a human being. The rose's seed is the first stage of its life, although it doesn't look like a rose, all the information is contained within that seed for it to look like a rose. You cannot separate these into different species, because they are the same. From the moment of conception, the human life should be protected. The dead are buried and their wills are respected. Once a human life is created, there is no turning back. There is nothing in our power to make it un-human. Therefore, abortion is one way to terminate a human being's life.

A controversial topic that should have only one rule:
NO RELIGIOUS ACCUSATIONS!

Who cares if it goes against 'God' or the 'Bible'?
Who's God? Who's bible?
NOT MINE and not a lot of other citizens of this world.

This country is the 'land o' the FREE!'
Not the 'land of the Land of the free when it's conveniant for us.'

Whether abortion is right or wrong,
it should be a choice.
Wrong way to disagree with abortion:
"IT CONTRADICTS EVERYTHING BIBLE STANDS FOR!!!"

Right way to disagree with abortion:
"I think the baby is alive no matter what you say, so to me it is murder."

Something which no one ideally wants to have. Like any surgery or medical treatment problems can occur.

If so called "right to lifers" really want to do something positive, they would channel all their anger and use it to no better word than "glorify" all the alternatives women have to abortion, instead of attacking those who see no other alternative and the doctors that only want to make sure that a woman doesn't suffer from the process.
If rich republicans want everyone who gets pregnant to give birth, then they should start lining up to adopt into their own homes all the kids who are born to women who realize they wont be able to raise those children properly.
