Your point? We spend so much time fighting to protect life in all forms, except human life, there is something wrong with that concept.
He needs to find out why women wants an abortion before passing any registration regarding abortion
Sometimes it is necessary.
Fancy never having considered ANY reasons why women might need them. Dangerous bloke to be making decisions about anything.
I've done a complete U-Turn on Abortion since I read "How to be a woman" by Caitlin Moran.
She had an abortion when she and her husband realised they could not cope with another child under their circumstances. The pain of adoption was too much, they ether wanted a child with them or not at all.
Nature is tough, nature doesn't care if you want a child or not, it can "abort" without you knowing or traumatically later in pregnancy. Nature is powerful and brutal and, if you're not a person of Faith, it's nothing to do with a benevolent god.
It also gives power to the Mother in many species.
She can choose to nurture her young, or even to kill (and eat) her young because they have no chance of survival anyway.
Now we have the means to safely abort, we should hand that power over to the women. It's *their* body. She shouldn't have to raise a child she doesn't want and she certainly shouldn't have to put her body through a pregnancy for anyone's sake.
It wants me to sign in if I have permission to view the video.
I can confirm that , it's marked as a private video .
That's a shame. Probably too many people leaving comments after it was posted.
I also find that, at law, there is also a contradiction. If a woman is allowed to abort a baby, for whatever reason, why is it that a person, who, through their actions towards a pregnant woman, is charged with murder or manslaughter.
I'm pro choice, choice by the mother.
I miscarried a baby at 10 weeks, so not quite an abortion, but I think it is the same operation (baby died but remained there without any symptoms so had to be vacuumed out under anesthetic).
So I do know that the abortion operation is a serious thing, but still we should be given a choice.
I'm with you, Q. Mrs SL had the same operation back in the 80s. Quite upsetting.
I don't consider a foetus the same as a living baby. Our bodies can expel them at any point without our knowing. We can form attachments to the
*potential* viable life a lot earlier than before we had ultrasound and pregnancy tests, but with these tests we can also decide to abort.
The procedure should be safe for the woman. It's not safe for the foetus anyway but performing a safe abortion for the mother never involves the level of brutality some would have you believe.
I've helped "nurse" two friends through the process. Two pills, a lot of craping and blood loss (like very heavy menstruation) and a flood of hormones. Very much like having a very bad period.
These women were not Mothers. They did not want to be mothers, they did not want to be pregnant, they did not want to put themselves through 9 months of carrying a baby they could not afford to raise (with people who had coerced them in the first place!) and could not bear to give away to be raised elsewhere.
Fortunately I have never been put in a position where I had to choose - but - one thing I do know for certain - if I were pregnant as a result of rape I would abort it without thinking twice.
Put up or shut up is my thinking on this.
Either take in the child personally and either raise it yourself or entirely fund it yourself from cradle to end of education without complaint despite the rape/drug/alchohol/chromosome issues of the not-aborted foetus or leave it to the mother to decide.
I've seen the anguish of the decisions to keep or to abort of women in various scenarios but it is not my place to decide for them what is right for them - nor yours either.
FWIW we have taken in unwanted children, albeit at a later stage in their lives, typically after they have been on drugs and the like.
This is an emotive subject, and, one that, unfortunately is never going to go away. If abortion were only available to victims of rape then it may be less emotive. I'd guess that the problem lies with the fact that there are some who use abortion as a form of contraceptive.
I also believe that the natural father should bear responsibility for the resulting offspring. Yes, the girl/woman, must live with the consequences for (approx) 9 months, but, if you lose a limb doing something stupid, there is no remedy for that either.
Neither of us are going to convince the other of our stand, so I shall ignore this thread from now on.
