What are your thoughts on abortion? Not from a political or religion stand point, but from a moral stand point?
It's none of my business what other people choose to do concerning the abortion of their fetuses, but if do-gooders want to fight for their right to life then their moral obligation to society and the fetuses they pretend to care about is to adopt them and raise them as their own. Let's see how genuine these right to life for fetuses advocates really are.
This may come as a surprise to a lot of people, but I don't agree with it. Not unless the mother's life is at stake. That being said, feel free to ignore my opinion. It's a free country.
It is the womans decision ultimately. We should have medically trained staff to do as appropriate to stop backstreet abortions and women suffering from unnecessary complications.
I don't like it but I see the necessity for it being readily available.

I would never abort my own child. But i think women should have the right to the option of abortion. If i had a alien looking creature growing inside me i would use the option, but then im a dude
theres plenty of barren woman who could adopt a baby
I feel like it's a quick and easy way for would be mothers to kill their unwanted kids. If it's inconvenient for you to have kids, then make the dude use a rubber or use the plan b. This is a touchy subject too, so I'm not going to say much more than that. I will say that I'm very proud of the honorable adults from past generations who stuck to their marital vows, didn't murder their fetuses(children) for convenience sake, and stuck it out to hang in there and raise their kids like responsible, respectable, and commendable adults.
I feel it's wrong. It's the taking of human life, that exists inside the womb.
There are ways to prevent pregnancy.
you either think they are a life or not.
Listen to this
Non of my business let people do what they want
Considering morality is caring about causing the least harm to yourself and others by your thoughts and actions, there could be room for abortion to be a moral decision. Sometimes nature aborts for you where no moral decision is required. It is going to depend on what a person considers to be harm. While we don't have a crystal ball, consider the amount of people who wished they had never been born. In hindsight, perhaps the least harm would be not being born. What about knowing that a fetus will have defects that will grossly impair them from a normal life? Is sparing them that pain compassionate? It seems that quality of life should matter, not just life itself considering the amount of people who take their own lives or wished they were dead. While some adopted children go on to have wonderful lives, I am not sure that is the case for most. The thing about morality is that it is a "decision" making process where the more information you have, the better chance you have of doing what is morally correct. In the case of abortions, most people don't really consider the whole picture and just let their emotions run the show.
I think it is wrong. I remain pro-choice, as what is right for me should not be forced on others. I don't know the circumstance of every woman who seeks abortion.
I hold no belief in souls. The idea that a Human being pops into existence at the point of conception is childish fantasy in my opinion. The development of a zygote into a embryo, then a foetus then a baby is a gradual process. For me the answer to any rights or wrongs lie in where in that process we decide is a line between a parasitic clump of developing cells and a viable, independent Human being. Admittedly it is not an easy line to draw. Personally speaking, Up to 13 weeks or so I don't really care. Not even slightly perturbed by abortion for any reason the mother may have. Personhood is about more than DNA. It's about more than having a rudimentary face with underdeveloped hands and feet. A foetus aborted within this period never knew it was alive. It never had thoughts or feelings. It never experienced touch, or sight, or smell or sound. It never had memories, it never had dreams or imagination. It couldn't even experience pain. It wasn't a Human being. I fail to see why I should feel something over that. Statistics show that 95% of all abortions occur in this time period which is what one would hope. Abortion gradually becomes more unpalatable to me as the 2nd trimester rolls on. Most of the remaining 5% of abortions remaining that take place in this time do so for medical reasons such as terrible genetic defects in the foetus or the mother being mentally or physically incapable of continuing the pregnancy without harm. That I am ok with although I'm not going to pretend an abortion at something like week 22 is anything like an easy procedure to stomach. In the end I am not a woman and I don't get to say how a woman's body is governed, nor would I want to. Women's reasons for why they abort are their own and I don't get involved. My personal moral concerns are over when a foetus is truly capable of being an independent being? Well, that seems to be around week 22-24 so I'd call time on abortions at that point for all except the direst emergency cases. Law pretty much seems to echo that.
abortion = murder. Murder is still murder, act of murder.
Well I have always looked at it objectively so for example, if MY mother had aborted me when I was only a foetus, I wouldn't be here now answering your question would I? That's a frightening thought when you make it that personal
A 'right' is something that people have that help them but does not harm another. Therefore, women have no right to have an abortion.
The world is already overpopulated. So abortion is good.
I think it’s none of my business. As long as it’s their choice, I won’t protest or tell anyone what to do with their own body.
From a purely moral perspective, abortion is equivalent to murder in self-defence. It is selfish, cruel, violent--but not evil.
We need to reduce the world-population and the per-capita consumption in the rich countries or there will be no life in the 22nd century. Abortion is better than having born and breathing people starve or die of easily preventable diseases
Sir Studley Smugley
I know I'll never have one - so it's officially None Of My Business. I have no right to tell a woman what should, or should not, take place inside her own body.
Forcing a woman to remain pregnant when she no longer wishes to be so is simply wrong, and attempting to put stipulations for the circumstances under which she is allowed to end the unwanted pregnancy are a horrid invasion of privacy. If you wouldn't tie up a woman and keep her locked in your basement until she gave birth, then why would you try to force her to give birth in some more passive way? Because it amounts to the same thing: one person forcing another to do something with their body that they do not wish to do.
I compare abortion to eating eggs for breakfast. I eat eggs for breakfast. I don't eat chicken nuggets though.
Abortion is murder. Science shows there is human DNA from conception, so it is murder to deliberately destroy a life from that point on. The only exception would be if the mother's life is in danger and it literally boils down to choosing one or the other. Abortion is by no means an unforgivable sin. All sins can be cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ! Death leads to heaven or hell, and the only way to get to heaven is to trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior. The Bible teaches that we have all sinned and that the wages of sin is death (Rom. 6:23). This means that we all deserve eternal separation from God in hell. However, Jesus Christ loves us so much that He died on the cross as the complete payment for our sins and came back from the dead (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He promises everlasting life as a free gift to anyone who simply believes in Him alone for it! No one can be saved by doing good works. Eternal life is received by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9).
