    Well, I’ll just add another voice to this long and painful debate. I’m a 21 year old Catholic female and I support the right to have an abortion. That being said, I’m not saying it’s okay or the appropriate decision or anything of that nature but I am saying that the government has no place legislating on such a personal matter. Those who support the right to an abortion are called pro-choice for a reason, they support one’s right to make the decision for themselves. If your values make you opposed to abortion then I support your right not to have one or every be talked into one. On the same token, however, if you don’t even believe in God I’m not going to tell you you can’t abort your fetus because an entity you don’t believe exists says its wrong.

    How about we put all of this angry energy into preventing unwanted pregnancies in the first place by allowing comprehensive sex ed in our schools, instead of the continuing the notion that abstinence only works.

    See, the thing is, those who believe nobody should be allowed to have an abortion also tend to think nobody should be allowed to use birth control. They say it’s God’s will, and they’d never admit it’s their concept of God they’re trying to force on everybody. They’d also prefer to do the judging and punishing themselves, instead of letting God take care of it. Don’t look for consistency, or any real thought; their belief makes it correct—-just as no amount of official paperwork, attestations or even Supreme Court dismissals will ever convince them that Obama is a U.S. citizen. They deny it, so it must be false. Score one for faith, zero for reason.

    woo i just love when people talk about this topic:)
    i dont give a damn what you say, abortion is MURDER!!
    especially when you have TWO or MORE. It’s sad becuase a lot of young
    girls have abortions when they should’nt be having sex in the first place.
    i mean what ever happened to not having sex till your married?

    Girls go out & have sex & when they get pregnant there like oh well i’ll just go get an abortion??they rely on this, which is horrible. Therefore, if it wasnt available maybe they’d think twice before having sex, or better yet get on birth control.

    The women who do get abortions, should be in prison for murder.
    “If you cant do the time, dont do the crime”(:
    & women who do get abortions most of the time get them because they “screwd up”.
    Its as easy as this, keep ur legs shut & you wont have to make that decision:)

    Wow! You are Naive to say the least. So I guess you’ve talked to everyone that’s had an abortion and know that that is the reason for all people….How about when you are going to DIE and have serious health complications for you and your baby and NO HOSPITAL will do anything. How about when Birth Control Fails (because let’s face it not EVEYONE SHARES YOUR " MORAL COMPASS" ) so you have no other choice?? Or when you are RAPED?? That’s murder……interesting. You’re train of thought baffles me. Doesn’t the bible say that you shouldn’t Judge unless you’ve walked a mile in someone else’s shoes How sad that you have everything to say but haven’t given any thought to what happens when a VERY SERIOUS situation arises. We need to EDUCATE and make OTHER OPTIONS AVAILABLE!!! THIS IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN-CHANGE IS INEVITALBE! So hillarious. Thanks for the Morning Giggle. Much appreciated.

    CAN WE LEAVE RELIGION AND THE BIBLE OUT OF EVERYTHING! SHEESH! WE ARE NOT ALL CHRISTIAN! AND TOO THINK THIS IS INSANITY AT IT’S BEST. We used to somewhat have Freedom of Religion in this Country. So you don’t like it, then DONT GET ONE!! Same as if you don’t like a certain place, certain people, or certain food….DONT GO, SPEAK TO, or EAT (them). Funny how people have become advocates for forcing their Ideas on another persons body and mind…..yeah that’s a way to make our Country better-FORCE. How sad. I think Education, Love, and Preventative Care is the answer here.

    I don’t understand why this debate revolves around being allowed to have abortions and not being allowed to have abortions. There’s a time period people should be allowed to discharge the unwanted/unplanned potential child, for a great series of reasons, like: Rape, broken penetration, health complications, financially/ mentally inept, and etc. The debate should be around the time frame of when it is okay to have an abortion, and not whether it is legal to participate.

    I wonder how many pro-lifers are willing to adopt. Better yet, I wonder what the statistics are on which religions have the most abortions. After all, they aren’t taught to use contraceptives or much about sex ed. The ‘sinners’ are more likely to use them, thus less likely to get pregnant, etc. But why debate it. The alternative is being pro life like Andrea Yates, Susan Smith, or Casey Anthony. Yeah, more irresponsible parents is exactly what we need.

    This is a difficult & emotional subject. Here is my 2 cents. I think that abortion should not be used as a contraceptive. But I think sometimes there is a need. If you look at all the child abuse in today’s society by their own family that is suppose to nurture & protect, that no one reports & that gets swept under the rug or falls through the cracks due to bureacratic nonsense then I praise the young ladies that had enough sense & forethought to make the painful decision of abortion. I would much rather see a fetus aborted than a child abused. Some women cannot carry & then give up for adoption. For some families it’s not a choice.
