I had an argument with my friend about this, so I wanted to know what you guys thought. Do you support or oppose abortion? Give an explanation to why if you can. If you aren't mature enough to discuss this than don't post.
I personally am against abortion because it's just like murder. That and also because I'm Catholic...but that's another discussion. Anyway, if people know that they can get pregnant from having sex, then they shouldn't do it at all of they're not willing to accept the possible consequences.
Edit: If you mods think this is a bad idea, considering that you have been here a lot longer than me...than close this.

Some people on this thread are not seeing the whole situation for what it is. Sure, you could be against abortions 100%, and you say that it is still life after all. Well, what if that person was raped, and if they were to have to child, all they would see everyday would be the child of the man who raped her. Even if she wanted to put the child up for adoption, she would have to tell the adoption agency who the father was, if she even knows. That child would be branded the rapists kid, it would go in his/her file, so if any caring person would want to adopt him/her, the main detourant to adopt this child would be that he was born from a rapist. First impressions are always important. Now, I'm not saying that this is all going to happen, maybe the parent of the child would want to keep it, I personally don't know why, but if they kept the child everything would grand for it, I guess. I wouldn't want that child to join my gene pool, I would not want a rapist to somehow be connected to me. The other side to this issue is the aspect of dangers during pregnancy. Due to the miracles of science, we can now predict if there will be troubles during pregnancy. Why not take this warning, which even 20 years ago many people didn't get, and save your own life. Sure, you will kill your growing fetus, if its even at that stage yet, but you will save yourself. If you can save yourself, then you will be able to try again to have another child. On many media frenzies, they show how the mother chooses to die during pregnancy (cough Star Wars cough), but thats just stupid. The female body has the ability, keep listening I'm not crazy, has the ability to give birth multiple times. I know, I couldn't believe it either. But know that that is out in the open, the signs were pretty clear, just look at the Irish Catholics, they average out 6 babies a year (I'm kidding, for the most part). I hope this has cleared some room in some of your anti-abortion minds, to show you that under certain circumstances, abortion is the best choice.

to your first part about the rapist situation even thou i already stated half the reason on this part on my first post in here, about shouldn't murder a kid over someone else's mistake
Sure yes he would be a rapist son, and no the mother doesn't have to give the fathers name, all she has to tell them is the fact she was raped, i don't care if she was raped i'm sorry it happend to her but that still isn't an excuse to murder a kid, give the kid a chance to make a living for his/her self
now about the science crap about how we can predict weather to save yourself n so on if we know ahead of time that it may kill the mother to have the baby,
once again here we go the life of the new born baby or the life of the mother, any self respecting mother ofcourse would choose the life of the baby over her own for one, I myself yes there is no way out of this your going to lose one or the other, sad to say i Myself ain't sure if i was put in this situation I ain't hundred percent sure what I wold do, but in all truthfullness i hope i make the decistion to choose the kid the mother
