Abortion is a medical procedure resulting in the termination of a human pregnancy and death of a fetus. Abortion was banned in 30 states until the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade. The ruling made abortion legal in all 50 states but gave them regulatory powers over when abortions could be performed during a pregnancy. Currently, all states must allow abortions early in pregnancies but may ban them in later trimesters.
Duel decision,unless in cases of rape,incest or danger to the mother or child or with written consent of both mother and father to have an abortion within 3 months.Legally it should be both parents decision.If father wants an abortion and mother doesn't he should not be held financially responsible for the child and vice versa if the father does want the child and the mother doesn't.
Pro-life, with the waiver that if a woman's life is at risk and at least two doctors agree she is, then an abortion should be allowed. In general though, abortions should be discouraged, and neither women or men should be allowed to insist on an abortion for the woman in question, nor she herself, if neither child or woman is in any physical danger.
Pro life but allow for consideration in instances of rape or danger to an individual whilst additionally increasing a focus on and access to contraception and sex education to avoid unwanted pregnancies. Additionally, seek greater encouragement for adoption in cases where households are unable to raise a child safely or effectively
okay being pregnant young is hard, but if you didnt use protection and you knew the risks killing the baby is unfair and selfish. plus not many women have the opportunity that you have .
the only reasons i think an abortion should be allowed is if you got pregnant because of, rape, drugged, forced, sexual harassment, manipulation, ( condoms broke or the pill or rod didnt work ).
Abortion is murder and should be legislated as such. If the life of the mother is in the balance then a court exemption should be applied for. Additional education and adoption services made available. Too many infertile couples and no options to adopt in this country.
I would say that I am pro-life, however in cases of rape, incest, danger to the mother/child or in circumstances where the parent is not going to be able to provide a safe, secure upbringing to the child due to financial circumstances etc - abortion should be allowed.
i think that people that have been victim of rape or other horrible experiences should be able to abort their child, however people that have had multiple abortions and are and are a 'career aborter' shouldn't be able to.
I am pro choice, however it needs to be unanimous. I believe it would be unfair for either person to have more of a say than any other. I also think fathers should have more of a say. If a father says no to having a baby and the mother says yes, more often than not the baby will be aborted, however if the father says yes to abortion and the mother says no, I don't think the father should be forced to pay any child support as he already asked for the child to be aborted as he indicated he would either not be able to or want to take care of the child. The decision must be two way and not one. If the mother chooses to have the baby against the fathers will then she must not expect anything from the father. If he can't choose to have or not have the baby, he should at least be able to choose whether or not he wants to raise it.
Pro choice, up to 20 week scan (which is the one that detects most foetal abnormalities). A woman should have the right to decide if she is emotionally, intellectually and financially able to raise a child with disability.
After this, it should only be available in extreme cases after doctor and psych review.
Pro-choice, the government has no right to ban it. To improve the health and wellbeing of the population, the government should provide elementary sexual education and public health campaigns that advocate safe sex and knowledge of STIs.
Pro-choice but the government has no right to ban it and providing birth control, sex education, and more social services will help reduce the number of abortions. You should be able to choose what you do with your body.
I believe both. Women should have the right to bring new life into the world of and when they choose. Abortion should definitely be an option due to rape, health concerns, incest it could be an unexpected pregnancy and they aren’t ready.
Abortions should be freely available regardless of how pregnancy happened. Not everyone is able to support children, not everyone is capable of delivering children. Government should not have a say in this as it affects the individual needing/wanting an abortion.
Pro-life, but allow in cases of rape only after the adoption option has been refused, but up to 2 months along (roughly when the foetus/baby forms a heartbeat, so before then). I’d also allow in cases of incest if significant issues are detected, and up to the end of the second trimester if the mothers life is at risk in any pregnancy.
