If I were asked in a survey if I support a woman's choice to make decisions about her own body, I'd answer with a resounding YES! Although I may not agree, I do not wish to curtail any woman wanting to tattoo every centimeter of her body or to pierce every inch. She should be able to magically have breasts the size of basketballs or to have a nose even smaller than Michael Jackson's!

However, a woman cannot impregnate herself. This is basic stuff that almost every pro-abortionist forgets. When an egg and sperm join together, a new life is created. It's very true that the new life usually cannot survive on its own for just a little while, but it is a scientific fact that an egg and sperm join together to form a new life. A woman is now carrying a new life that was created by herself and a man. What she now does to her body directly affects the life of her unborn child and indirectly, the child's father.

It's also true that a woman "has to" (it's often referred to as some kind of a prison sentence) carry the new life for a few months until the life is mature enough to survive on its own. But does the owner of the temporary home have the right to kill its occupants?

Imagine a house where the father says, "You know, it's just too damned crowded in here. We do not need an extra kid." So, he takes his household tools and dismembers the child. (I must apologize for this horrible graphic, but there's a point to be made) The child is dead. The father could have taken the child to Child Services and said that he could no longer take care of the child. But, instead he exercised his "choice" to end the child's life.

I cannot for a moment ignore that, in the United States, a woman can complete control over her unborn child's life and can dismember or poison him while he's still quite small. And it's legal!

But, why are we horrified when we hear nauseous stories about parents torturing and killing their born children, yet we champion the "choice" of women to do it to their unborn children?

It's been said that a society should be judged on how it treats it most vulnerable members.

So yes, I'm pro-"choice." But it depends entirely on what that choice is and whose lives it involves.

I respect your beliefs and what you feel is right or wrong. However, I expect the same respect from you, regarding my beliefs. I don't try and force my beliefs or ideals on people and I expect them to treat me in the same way.

Every human being is different. We all have different characteristics and beliefs. We are all made happy or sad by different things. What we believe is affected by many sources, parents, grandparents, teachers, friends, religious leaders etc etc. We all have to accept that people think very differently to each other.

As a woman who does believe in choice, I would not want any person to stop me in my decision because they felt that it was wrong. I do not think it is right that other people should be able to make that choice for me. It is my decision after all and it would be me that would be living with the knowledge.

Some people believe that abortion is wrong, so be it. I'm not going to change their attitudes or tell them they are wrong. However, I do feel that it is wrong when they attempt to make abortion illegal. What I decide to do with my body is no ones elses business.

If I fell pregnant it would be the worst thing in the world. I do not want children and my husband and I do everything in our power to stop it from happening. Having a child would make us miserable and I am glad that in this country we have the option to choose to have an abortion.

It may sound harsh to you, but it doesn't to me. We have the choice and I believe it is every womans right to choose what she wishes and not to have any one attempt to change her mind.

I'd be interested to know your thoughts on contraception. I'll not berate you for your beliefs and I expect the same in return.

good day to you

Very well written! I wish more people had your attitude.

I have seen too many unwanted, abused, mentally, emotionally and physically mutilated children to ever be against abortion.

Every child has the right to be wanted and loved and treated with care and respect.

This is a woman's right to choose. If she desires an abortion, then she is probably aware that she would not be able to give a child what every child deserves to have, for whatever reason.

Quality of life is more important than a life of misery.

You should have seen some of the atrocious things that I've seen done to tiny babies and children of all ages. You'd wish their mother had aborted them too.

Patience.

Let's always remember... married or not, ADOPTION is always an option.... there are too many families out there that are ready to love and nurture a child to allow even one child to be murdered by abortion. Yes, it's your body, but your baby has a body too... why doesn't anyone ever consider that fact??? Oh, by the way if you haven't figured it out I'm totally against abortion and no one will change my mind.

I would not even attempt to change your mind as I would never change my mind about a womans right to choose...You say adoption is Always an option....Sorry but it is not. The thought of actually carrying a baby makes me feel phisically ill and would be detrimental to my health.

No women should ever be forced to carry a child if she doesn't wish to do so. However, she should abort at the earliest opportunity, whilst it is only a few cells and cannot be described as a baby, only the potential to be one! The morning after pill is freely available to all in the UK, and should be obtained if a woman is unwise enough to have unprotected sex.

It is the baby's body we are talking about. Abortion is wrong. It is an American holocaust, national and racial suicide on a massive scale.

If men could have children, abortion would be a sacrament.

I think people get far too hyped up about abortion. Most are carried out when the foetus is only a blob and cannot be described as a baby!
