Yes, women who have been raped deserve all the sympathy in the world, but that doesn't mean we should allow them to take an unborn child's life.
They should have the choice. And thank goodness that they do in most nations.
Gato,considering me and you dont have wombs we really have nothing to say on the matter of abortion.
I agree with this. You`ll notice that its usually the men that are doing the raping and it is women that have to live with the results. Its easy for a male to be against abortion when he will never have to go through what a raped or beaten woman had gone through.
Also, if you look at statistics for single parents, they overwhelmingly show that it is women that are stuck alone with the child while the father is out partying somewhere. I`m in no way saying that this is grounds for abortion, but what I am saying is that it is all too easy for men to judge the women who have had abortions and call it murder, but when it comes down to real life situations, a lot of these men are nowhere to be found.
I think that abortion is a horrible thing and would never do it myself. That is my
choice. Why the h*ck should I have to listen to a man, who will never go through what I will go through with pregnancy, tell me that I must have the baby?
I respect all the guys opinions here, but I truly don`t think that it is their place to decide what a woman should do with her body, especially in the case of rape or abuse.
Like I said before, rapists are sick f*cks who deserve the worst punishments in the world.
Yes they are, except that in a lot of cases, they manage to get away.
If a woman is raped and she has to carry the baby because a man she`s never met made a law that made abortion completely illegal, I would be sickened. I respect your opinion but I don`t think that taking a choice away from a woman that has been violated is right. Its one of the worst patriarchal situations I could think of.
There was a story in the news here a few weeks ago about a woman who was taking accutane for her acne for a few months before her pregnancy and in her first few weeks. The doctor told her that her best chances would be to abort the child because he would be born with serious defects or abnormalities because of the accutane. She decided to go through with her pregnancy and the child was born with serious defects. The child has mental as well as physical problems and will never function normally. Now she`s trying to sue the dr., even though he told her the risks. In this case, i believe that she should have had an abortion but she selfishly chose to keep the baby. This child will badly suffer for the rest of his life because his mother was a selfish b****. JMO.
But maybe, like the article speculates, polish women from poland are coming to the UK to have this done as it is legal and free in the UK (thanks to tax payers like NO IMMIGRATION :) )
LOL! Right out of his pocket!
