  • I agree about the adoption thing although there are so many beautiful children waiting to be adopted right now as we speak. But I also think that a woman should have the right to choose to a certain degree.. nobody should use it as birth control or anything but what about rape? like you said, birth defects that would put danger to the woman or child?? there are two sides to every story and I know a few friends who have had abortions and they are great people, having an abortion didnt' change that.

  • I know, like I said, I understand that there are different reasons for it. Rape I'm not sure about - I would never expect a woman to keep a child that was the result of rape (although I would greatly admire someone who was strong enough for that!) or who was put in danger by the pregnancy. But like you said, it shouldn't be used as a backup birth control - oops, I got pregnant, oh well I can always have an abortion. Ya know? But a couple who's trying to adopt a baby, to them it makes no difference if the child was conceived through rape. They just want a baby.

  • I agree with you alot I just lean towards the choice part only because of not knowing the individuals and what their reason is like I said rape , I wouldnt imagine a woman wanting to keep a baby that was conceived that way and I would totally understand her not wanting to. I am so glad that we can all talk about a topic such as this with compassion and understanding of others views, i have been on other boards where it gets really nasty!!!
