I am definately pro choice. What I don't understand is why these young girls are not using birth control. Is it really that hard? Its their body, they are the ones that are going to suffer the consequences.

It amazes me when parents don't think that sex and birth control should be discussed because that will encourage them to have sex. Please, they are going to have sex whether you discuss it with them or not. The only difference is you will be discussing it with them when they come to tell you they are pregnant.

I worked in the health insurance industry for many years. You would not believe some of the people that I talked to. They would call when they were pretty far into the pregnancy asking what their insurance would cover for an abortion. Many times, they would wait so long they would have to go to another state where late term abortions were not illegal. Abortion was a covered benefit, but they would have to pay for it out of pocket and submit it for reimbursement. They didn't even have the money to pay for an abortion, how are they going to raise a kid? Many times I could see that this wasn't even their first abortion. I found it to be disgusting how matter of fact they were about it, and just seemed to find it to be an inconvenience.

You need a other option. I don't agree with abortion if it was a stupid mistake, I do believe it is alright if it was a rape situation and as long as it is done immediately.

Thank you for encouraging communication with children. The head in the sand strategy just doesn't work.

Interesting side note that is statistically proven, kids taught abstinence only statistically have sex for the first time at the same age as those taught comprehensively. They also have the exact same frequency of sexual activity.

Here's the kicker. The only significant statistical difference is that those who are taught abstinence only have a higher rate of STD's and unwanted pregnancy than those taught comprehensively.

I'm pretty sure these are CDC stats. My wife teaches the psychology of sexuality at the local college. If you'd like to know the exact source, let me know.

To me abortion is kind of like suicide. It is a selfish act on the person deciding to go through it. Just because someone has something going on in their life doesn't mean that they should just stop one from ever becoming. No one knows what the future holds. I am Pro-Life. Yes we live in a free country but the freedom of one doesn't give you the right to take the freedom of another no matter how old or young...

im kinda in between, so i didnt vote. i feel a woman has her right to choose. however, choosing to get an abortion because your boyfriend forgot to pullout in time and you are not old enough or do not want a baby is an UNACCEPTABLE reason to get an abortion.

however, if you were raped or was informed by your doctor that you would have severe complications or die if you gave birth to the baby, then i feel you have the right to abort the pregnancy.

i certainly do not agree with most abortions, however i feel the government really has no right to make a law banning abortions based on ethics.

Thoughts?
i agree with you.im pro choice but when you see a aborted baby it makes you 2nd guess. im still pro choice

I'm pro choice, but I see the other side of the argument too. I also have the fear that if abortion is banned, young women may find a more dangerous way to end the pregnancy. This is a very touchy subject.

I'm a woman and pro-life.
If something traumatic happened to me, I may feel otherwise & would have to carefully weigh what options I have available, discussing it with my family members & other professionals. However, I believe most are done, not because of an attack, but as an "alternative" & do not consider other methods such safe sex, the pill & other birth control preventatives, parents & children taking active roles in open, honest communication about the subject etc. Also, I think it just follows along with other subjects desensitized in our society today. I guess whether one was to get one or not, it is something you have to live with the rest of your life. Not a burden I would want to carry, no pun intended.

This is just an old girl's opinion.

I didn't vote because of the way the choices were worded.
Sometime there are good reasons for abortions but generally I am pro life.
You can't outlaw abortions because we will go back to the old ways of having illegal abortions.

interesting topic choice....being in the medical field I strive to save lives and prevent further injury. Fundamentally, I am against abortion but I can see if a womans health is compromised and the abortion needs to occur to keep her alive. On the other hand, it is a womans choice to do what she pleases since she is the one carrying the baby for 9 months.

I am pro choice. But not as a means of birth control. But if a woman is raped or incest.....an abortion is in order.

And remember......birth control is NOT 100% effective.
