Default How do you feel about Abortion?

While we're on the topic of all sorts of political and moral things, lets take a little poll to see how you feel about abortion...

Feel free to make comments. Please try and be respectful and not attack people, at least not too much

Debate is welcome, lets say, but all out fighting . . . try to keep that to a bare minimum!

Lets try to keep from fighting here. Just have one little question...

I've heard it said that the real debate is not about the actual abortion, but about when life begins. Do you agree? If so, how does that impact your feelings about abortion?

See it all starts out pretty, but it boils down to the pro are not going to change the anti's mind and the anti's are not going to change the pro's mind. And then someone will wander on over with the religion chip on the shoulder and start calling people butchers and threatening to punch people in the face.

I give you an A for effort though!

what's there to discuss? This is just one of those issues that skips discussion and jumps right to hurt feelings, accusations and defensiveness.

Rheanna, it might be difficult to keep this just straight Q & A. If you do a naturallycurly search on the abortion topic you will find that it's hard to keep from getting heated.

In an answer to your question. I am pro-choice. It's a woman's right to decide. I don't care where "life" technically begins whether at implantion or heartbeat or wherever. It's up to the woman on an individual basis.

Why can't it be discussed? My question is a good one in my opinion. I want to know what people think about the whole when did life begin issue... "They" say that's the REAL issue here, as someone who believes life begins at birth doesn't see abortion as wrong, and someone who believes a fetus is a living human from the get-go would obviously find abortion to be no different than killing a newborn, or me for instance.

I think that's a good topic. Why can't it stay calm ?

Because it never has in the past. Abortion is too personal an issue with strong feelings on both sides. This is NC. no hot button topic can remain calm here, it's just the nature of the board.

Now I would disagree that it is up to the woman on an individual basis as far as where life begins... If life begins at "x" point, would that not mean terminating life after said "x" point would be murder?

I'm not saying your views are wrong, although they are obviously different from mine. I'm just saying... if it's a life, then ending it is a murder. That's just logic right? So I just assumed that most abortion supporters feel that life begins either at a certain point the pregnancy, i.e. heartbeat, movement, whatever OR at birth.
