Question: so...ive had an abortion, and i dont really hide the fact that i havem but i also dont generaly going around telling everyonei know...my parents dont know...and honestly, i dont regret it, and it was not a very difficult decision for me. I was in no position, emotionally, or financially to have a baby at the time, and i dont believe in sending yet another child into the adoption system...who knows where the child would end up? i felt alot better about terminating the pregnancy, than iwould have if i had spent my entire life, not knowing where my child was. Maybe I just view things differently...i dont know...but i feel that i did the right thing...it was three and a half years ago, and now i have an 11 week old daughter...she is my whole world...well, her and her father... i dont know i guess im just irritated by everyone who is SO against abortion...what kind of life would their child have if they only gave birth because they felt they had no other option? cmon now... ACTUALLY i was using protection when i got pregnant...the guy i was with thought he could keep me around by getting me pregnant, which he did by poking holes in the condoms we used...so efore you judge..get the whole story okay? and another thing...when i had my abortion...i was 7 weeks pregnant...at that stage, there really isnt a whole lot there...i didnt kill a baby...i did the best thing for myself and for the unborn... every single pero-lifer can harp at me and tell me im a murderer and all that. but that doesnt change how i feel...i didnt murder anyone...you are wrong when you say that when women have abortions, the childs organs and heart and brain are all ther...that isnt true...at 7 weeks gestation, the fetus is no larger then the tip of a pencil. and i do whole heartedly believe that having an abortion saved the unborn fetus from a potential ife of hardship and pain. who can bring a child into the world knowing full well that they can n ot give them the absolute best chance at a good life...no one realizes how screwed up the adoption system really is. so many children are lost, and fall through the cracks and end up on te streets, and who could live with themselves knowing that hey sent a child to that sort of life?

I am pro-choice to a limit... you should not be having sex if you are not able to handle the consequences like an adult, and not aborting the baby just because of your carelessness or whatever. In rare cases of rape, incest and genetic diseases it should be pro-choice, but not just because you need a way out of your mess. And, if you really feel like you made the right choice, and stand by your decision why haven't you told your parents? If you have no shame, remorse or regret you should be able to speak freely with them about it. They might like to know they would have been grandparents had you not decided to abort the baby.

I can appreciate your reasons but my reasons for being against abortion are as follows: *At the time most woman abort the baby is very much alive with a developed heart and a working brain and all it's organs etc. *Adoption is a valid option. *I don't see why I should have the right to choose who lives and who dies because it may be convenient for me. *There is a lot of help out there for people who may struggle with having a child at that time. *If you think you couldn't adopt your baby out then why is ending it's life a better choice? *It's completely selfish as the baby is not considered in the decision. *It holds potential health risks and risk of depression and post abortion syndrome. *Just because life may be hard that the begining doesn't mean that the child could end up leading a very successfull and productive life in the future, I had a terrible childhood but I don't think it would have been better for anyone if my mother had killed me. *In everything you have said it seems you only spoke of how it affected you, not you baby. *It confuses me how you said "and i dont believe in sending yet another child into the adoption system...who knows where the child would end up? i felt alot better about terminating the pregnancy". So are you saying you care enough not to give the child the tiny risk of ending up with bad adoptive parents but you didn't care enough to keep the child alive??? * I had my 1st child when I had just turned 15 and it wasn't a bad choice and my son is perfectly happy and healthy and is not lacking in any areas because of my age when I had him, it wouldn't have been better to abort. *Adoptive parents are very heavily screened using every method possible so making out like adopted kids get bad parents everytime isn't very fair. I am not trying to get at you but it doesn't make much sense and I am just letting you know that pro-life people are there to support the rights of the unborn child. I understand your point of view but I just don't agree. By what you said you were wondering the views of a pro-life person so I thought my reasons would be helpfull in your answer:-)

In terms of "quality of life" for the baby, I want to say my life growing up with severely damaging and I have tremendous emotional baggage from it-I was absued psychologically and sexually for basically my entire childhood and I am SO THANKFUL that A. I wasn't aborted and B. Those experiences taught me so much and now I raise my kids VERY differently than I was raised... having little money, not all the latest/coolest things, not having a big house, or a huge paying job, etc doesn't make killing your child acceptable. What's more, regardless of how many children are waiting to be adopted, the fact remains, they still have life and chances because of it. By aborting a baby, you are eliminating a human life that has value, meaning, and potential. It's very arrogant to determine who should or should not live... Abortion is the killing of a baby. No amount of circumstances justifies this violent act. If it weren't for what abortion does, I wouldn't care. If it was ONLY her body we're talking about, I'd say get out of the woman's business. That's what her choice to have sex is all about-her right to choose... and don't ever forget, every single choice we make comes with positive and negative consequences and we MUST treat each situation as such. If we don't, we aren't really women and aren't making wise, mature, informed choices. Add: My grandmother gave up my aunt for adoption. It was NOT an easy choice in any sense. As she will tell you over 50 YEARS later, that was the day a piece of her heart was ripped from within her. BUT, why is it that every choice has to be easy in order for it to be right?! Please! Life is full of good things that are DIFFICULT choices. Adoption IS the right choice if you can't keep your baby. And we do have a right to make that moral judgement. If there is no set standard, then life is chaotic and anything goes from one person to another. Furthermore, my pro life stance is no more or less preachy and opinionated than that of those who believe in "pro choice". We both have views and beliefs and reasons for them. How dare EITHER side tell the other to basically not pass judgement. If it's sound, reasonable, and informed, speak your opinion! If there was basically nothing there at 7 weeks (which isn't true) then why even get the abortion? There is no such thing as a "sort of" person. Either it was a baby or it wasn't.

I think the problem most people have with abortion is the fact that a lot of women use it as a form of birth control. That's just plain wrong. By the way, my mom was adopted and very, VERY glad her biological mother chose that route. I have to say, you sound pretty darn selfish saying "I felt a lot better about terminating the pregnancy, than I would have if I had spent my entire life, not knowing where my child was." By that statement, you acknowledge that you stopped your child from living, but you care too much about how YOU would feel, wondering where that child was. This is more of a statement than a question... What if your mom were faced with the same decision while she was pregnant with you. Honestly, what would you have wanted her to choose. You need to ask forgiveness and not act so arrogant about the situation. Some women make the choice of abortion because they have to, but it's never something they rub in other peoples faces so proudly.

That is just so ridiculous and horrendous an attitude. So it's better to be ripped limb from limb or poisoned with saline, than to be put up for adoption? Ludicrous. I've met well-adjusted adopted people. They're much better off than if they'd been slain. Take a good look at your daughter...can you imagine her being torn into pieces? Well that first child was just as much your child...your flesh and blood...as your daughter is. Can you look at your daughter and imagine her in a garbage bag...which is exactly where the abortionists dump aborted babies, like your dead child? Yours is an example of a very messed up line of thought. I have to love you, because you are a person capable of potentially receiving santifying grace if you repent...but your past behavior and current attitude are shameful. BTW...You, and many others in this modernist world, have the wrong idea about suffering. Suffering is often sent to us as a way of gaining merit for our souls, and earning a higher degree of happiness in heaven. I'm going through a really rough time in my life, but I know it's God's way of helping me gain more merits. God sends us things to help us learn and become better people. Suffering is painful in the here-and-now, but it makes us stronger and happier people in the end. Through God's help, we can overcome all obstacles, and come out better people because of it. Suffering is part of humanity, and denying someone the chance of living their life because they "might suffer" is just so wrong. So many loving couples would have gladly welcomed your baby into their family. Now it's decomposed in a landfill or something. I hope that for your sake, you will eventually repent.

Hiram Originally Answered: I need a thesis statement for an argumentative essay on Late-term abortion! please help me?
Hi Alyssa, look at this one: Is Partial-Birth Abortion Moral? Abortion, is the termination of pregnancy before the fetus is capable of independent life. When the expulsion from the womb occurs after the fetus becomes viable (capable of independent life), usually at the end of six months of pregnancy, it is technically a premature birth. The complete essay is here: http://www.oppapers.com/essays/Partial-Birth-Abortion-Moral/28424
