I hope i posted this in the right section, i'm really not sure about it.
The abortion debate is quite popular, so excuse me if such a thread has already been made, i haven't seen any and i haven't seen any search button either. If such a thread has already been made, could you please post the link to it? I'm very curious about the opinions of the members of this forum on the subject.

So, everything is in the title. Are you pro-choice or pro-life? Why? Do you think it should be legal or not?

I am completely okay with it if the pregnancy puts the mother's life or health in danger in any way, a mother shouldn't be forced to die for her kid(s). But when i think about all these girls who don't use any protection at all, thinking that it isn't necessary as they will "just" get an abortion if they get pregnant, it really disgusts me. I don't think abortion should be legal for such people, but then what about women who have been raped? Or what if the condom breaks/birth control fails?
It's quite a complex subject, i don't really know where i stand yet. What about you?

Pro-Choice!!!!!

Abortion has always existed and always will.
If you make it illegal, you won't stop it.
You just doom women to die in the process

Abortion has been around for thousands of years. Regardless of the reason, women will continue to do it.

I don't think the government should be involved with it(anti-abortion legislation), as it would be a waste of money. The only exception would be late term abortions unless the mother is in danger.

Personally, I think it is morally wrong but it is not my decision to make for someone else.

I've known of people who were emotionally scarred for years after having an abortion....

Therefore the question comes to my mind to what extent should the government go to protect people from themselves?

The government steps in to protect people from themselves as it pertains to other matters such as drugs, health care etc., what about abortion?

Not complex at all.

1. A woman has a right to her own body

2. A woman has a right to a choice;
say no to intercourse without contraception, or say yes to it with contraception

This is a very complicated subject that puts my own morals in question when I try to answer this..I think about the woman who was raped and finds herself pregnant with "his" baby OR the woman who learns early that her child will have a life threatening ailment OR a woman raped by her father/uncle OR an abused young woman whose mother threatens her life if she brings a baby into this world..there are many scenarios that would make this a more complicated decision and depending on one's spirituality, it would make it that much harder. FOR ME, I am prolife, because I know in any situation where I can draw strength from, but for others without a higher power, it may not be that easy, and who am I to judge?
