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."

One of the most irresponsible, selfish things on the planet. Essentially, the act of killing an innocent unborn child, merely because you can't handle the situation you got yourself into. Even in the case of rape victims, a more humane and natural way to deal with your unfortunate circumstance would be to give the baby up for adoption. P.S. if it matters to anyone, I am a Democrat.
To the person who equated male masturbation to genocide, it's a tad bit different when there isn't a female reproduction system involved, now isn't it? Abortion

Abortion is sucking out a mass of sperm and egg that cannot survive outside the womb. Contrary to what Republicans think, the Bible does NOT decide how others should live their lives. That's why the Bible theory is thrown out..

Not all people who get abortions are (teen) whores or not ready. If that was the case, everyone would wait to have sex for a LOOONG time, with a steady job and money. Clearly, that's impossible and will not happen. If the woman or the man used protection, then they did not want money. Sure, adoption could work. But if you don't want to spend over $3000 on pre-natal care and the pregnancy itself, abortion is a viable option.

Abortion is also helpful if raped, incest or health complications arose. Apparently, only 1% of abortions are for rape, and 7% make up all three. But hey, statistics can be made up to suit your needs.

A child is not a fetus. A baby is not a fetus. If you can hold it in your arms, and put a diaper on it, it is a baby. Fetuses take nutrition, and await to turn into babies, but they are NOT babies. I completely oppose third-trimester abortion, because in most cases it CAN survive outside the womb.

Granted, you can also just take Plan B. But everything that lessens the burden on humanity is apparently wrong(mainly because of the Bible).

Abortion lessens the amount of abused, neglected children. Adoption doesn't always work out, and the results can be the same, with cruel parents. But why bring them into a miserable life? See, abortion DOES help.

B: No, you ignorant fool. She used a condom.

A: Oh..Well...erm..She was being safe, not really a whore..

B: Exactly.

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.”
LORI NERAD - former national president of Women Exploited by Abortion
Abortion is wrong, change your life today.

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.
