I voted No.  Personally, maybe because I'm a Catholic, I'm completely opposed to abortion.  It is the woman's own choice, but even if I was raped I would keep the baby.  Why kill a child because of the way it was made?

Hey someone who thinks like me,indeed the baby never asked to be made therefore in the case of rape I would keep the baby

I couldn't keep the baby if it's a result of rape. It would be a constant reminder of what had been done to me, I can imagine that every time I looked at it I would be reminded of the horrible and brutal way of how it was concieved.

It can also effect whether/how your attacker is sentenced. If you want to keep the baby, maybe that suggests that it wasn't actually a rape? Not saying that is true, but that is the way it could look in court.

I say no.

It's a child, it's not a choice. It's not like a wart. A wart is indeed my body ... if it bothers me and i no longer want to have it around, i can get rid of it... it is my body. A fetus, however, is not my body. Once the semen from a man unites with an egg from me, the cells that result are not my body, but a product of a man and myself... and therefore not -my body-, just -in- my body.

in the words of forest gump,
"and that's all i got to say 'bout that."

and as far as abortions from rapes...
i believe that around 3% of the abortions that are performed are due to rapes. k, now i'm done. lol.

Stop reading my signature. Don't deny it. You're reading it. I can see you. You're giving it the casual little once-over. How rude. Didn't your mother teach you better?

I voted 'no', because  I know that I could never go through with it if I was ever in that position. 

Actually, when I was 18, I did have a pregnancy scare during a new relationship, and after much mental anguish, decided I wouldn't terminate - luckily for me, it turned out to be a false alarm! I've since had two healthy kids with my husband.

Having said that, I would respect another woman's choice if she decided it was best for her to have an abortion - especially in the case of rape, or if it's a really young girl.

Rarely would I argue that it's better for the baby to have it aborted, unless the mother is a developmentally-slow, drug addicted prostitute, who's planning on keeping the child, or perhaps if there is something majorly wrong with the developing foetus.

I am pro-life, but I believe in a woman's right to choose. Personally, I wouldn't have an abortion. Even if I was raped. Sure, it would be a constant reminder, but there is so much strength and courage to be gained from letting one life live, in spite of what has happened in my past. I would want to give my child more love than what was given to me, and I dunno....I just think that they should have a right to live. I know I'd be bringing it into a world of evils, but how is that different from any other birth? As parents, we try to teach our children, the future generations, to be better than previous ones. Sure, it was unplanned, incredibly unexpected, but think of all the good that could come out of new life.

But this is all my personal beliefs. I reiterate my statement that I think a woman should be able to choose.

What does "partial birth abortion" mean?? I am not a native English and some times I find difficult to understand some expressions.

Thanks in advance.

I wasn't aware of it myself, Enara, here's the Wiki page:  Partial Birth Abortion.  I hope it helps, I'll be honest, it didn't help me

Thanks Vicky. Yes, I understand now what they were talking about but I have never heard of such an awful practice in my life.

i don't understand the whole 'bring it into a world of evils' concern for parents... you're not bringing it into a world of evils your bringing it into the world where the child will be loved by parents if the parent's are having the child for the right reasons.

sorry for being controversial... it's just seems like something people just say to me. sure there are evil things in the world but there are also amazing things.
