look up any word, like bitch stare:
The termination of a pregnancy unwanted for one reason or another. If necessary, should only be attempted by a licensed practitioner. Those who believe abortions should be fully legalized and readily available do not advocate "killing babies". They simply believe abortion should be a legal option for instances as rape, incest, or ectopic pregnancies. Abortion is not a good thing but sometimes is the only thing. It is also a matter of Freedom, which is supposed to be valued highly in nations such as the USA. If someone wants pleasure but doesn't want to be a parent , where is the freedom in forcing them to be one? What business is it of ours what people do in private as long as it is not harmful? Even more to the point, where's the Freedom in forcing a raped women to either raise a baby she never asked for and comes as a painful reminder of a terrible event or, after the bonding experience of giving birth, part ways with it? And, in cases of the latter, is it healthy for a baby to separated from his mother?

However, Freedom is two-way traffic. (That anyone can call themselves "Pro-Life" and support the US military action in Iraq is nonetheless mind-boggling.)

There is also some debate over who should have the right to decide to get an abortion. Ultimately, it should fall to the woman. It's her body. Still, it would be the decent thing to involve the father (provided he is not a rapist or perverted blood relative.)
Anna: Julia was recovering well from being raped but she just found she's pregnant and she's thinking about an abortion. It's a difficult decision for her to make.

Jane : Who can blame her? Why would she want to mother a baby she never asked for, forced onto her by some creep she doesn't even know by name? Wouldn't it be a terribly painful reminder of her being violated every time she looked at the child?

Anna: Yeah, I agree. Let's call her and tell her to make that appointment...

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.

The act of removing a fetus from the womb while the woman is still pregnant. It should definitely be legal, but that doesn't mean I approve of "Oh hey I'm pregnant again-time for an abortion." And after the first trimester, you should have a real reason other than "I'm not ready." Do that in the first trimester than, before the baby develops too much more.

Reasons for an abortion:



Failed contraceptive.

Simply not ready for parenthood, usually teens. I know a bunch of people are rolling their eyes around at this one, but think. They might have been stupid, but they could get just caught up in the moment that they aren't suddenly going to go "Holy crap, I gotta pull on all my clothes and run out and buy a condom-be back later, ok?" And then imagine that you're 15 years old, a whole life ahead of you, and the test reads positive. Yes, it's their fault, but do you have any idea what that would feel like? Just THINK.
Amy: "I'm not ready for parenthood...I can't do this. I think I need an abortion. It's what would be best."

A term used to say that something is epically failtastic.
Girl 1: Oh, my god, I failed that test we took last week. How did you do?
Girl 2: I didn't know any of the answers; it was like an abortion.

Women and girls stories about abortion.

“I was an emotional wreck. The following day I was empty, sad, numb. I knew that day I had made a huge mistake. I wish with all my heart I would have done things differently.”

“I was told that I would be out for eight minutes and I would feel only a little discomfort afterwards. They lied,it ruined 10 years of my life.”

“Please understand that by aborting your unborn child, that does not make the baby go away. Your baby will be in your heart until you die. After abortion – the guilt, shame and loneliness is horrible. Once you abort, you cannot go back and change it.”

“Two weeks after the abortion, I went into labor. I staggered into the bathroom. And there, with my husband beside me, I delivered a part of my baby the doctor had missed. It was the head of my baby. . .” “I’ll wake up in the middle of the night, thinking I hear a baby crying. And I still have nightmares in which I am forced to watch my baby being ripped
apart in front of me. I simply miss my baby. I constantly wake up wanting to nurse my child, wanting to hold my child. And that’s something the doctor never told me I would experience.”

The act of ending an unwanted pregnancy.
Masturbation is different from abortion. It doesn't kill an individual human being, only gametes die, same with when a female has her period.

When a woman aborts a child inside her own body.

When a woman gets an abortion that does not make her a slut. Its not like she was having sex and was just like "oh well thats okay if i get pregnant ill just have an abortion" its not like there fucking free. And what if some one is raped? or the birth control or condom didnt work or broke? then what happens? And whos going to take care of the baby, most of the time when people get abortions its cause they cant support the child and it would die of an illness anyway. If abortion is made illegal then were all gonna have to pay more taxes to support the already over crowded orphaneges. I hope all u anti abortionist adopt a fuck load of kids.
A womans right to choose what she does with her own body, look theres and anti-abortionist, while there at it why they just take away our right to vote!
