Ok let's start: Our topic for this week is
"ARE ABORTIONS REALLY IMMORAL"
Almost all the religions in the world call abortions sin and immoral equalling to murdering a living being.But in present times are abortions really that big sin. Is it fair to bring kids with deformities, genetic disorders,and health issues to life??...what about unwanted kids resulting from premarital, extramarital relationships or rapes??...what about kids of unwanted sex or parents with insufficient resources to give them basic nessecities of life?? should the women be given the right to decide alone(her being primary caretaker or should father of kid in question have a say??
Let the debate began.....

What a woman wants to do with her body is her choice and her choice only. If a woman wants to get an abortion for whatever reason she has every right too. No one can tell another person what to do. That is like if I went to someone in a restaurant and said "Don't eat that because I do not want you to!"
The only time I can personally disagree with abortion is when someone uses it as a form of birth control (constant abortions), but like I said no one should be able to stop someone from aborting a baby. If someone is raped- why should they be further reminded of that event?
Also- one needs to think about the kids! If someone knows they cannot provide the right means to care for a child's well-being and does not wish to give them up for adoption (because they fear they might want to meet the child which would further complicate matters) then it is in everyone's best interest that the child not be born.
I still do not understand who gave anyone the right to tell a person what not to do with their body. That makes no sense to me.
As for the father- if he is not in the picture- he has no say. If he is... a joint decision has to be made. If the father really wants the baby- then he should take full responsibility for the child.... I know this would probably not always work but....
gurl i couldnt have put it, any better.....completly agree!!!!

gigli... u practically took the words from my mouth
its a women's choice, if she wants to have an abortion or whatever, no body else can tell her what to do with her body. Its her body, she can do whatever she wants with it, and i agree with gigli that abortions is not right when a girl uses it as a means of birth control, that is not the purpose of it, if they are old enough to create life then they should be able to take care of that life, every action has its consequences

I agree with gigli that it is essentially the woman's choice;
but globally this doesnt really happen. Women are pressured by society and family to take decisions that they may not want to.
I also think governments and religeous groups should not impose their anti-abortion stances on women. As a human being, a woman has every right to do what she wants with her body.

I agree with Jen, and jen that was very well said. Just like most of the other members i think that a women has the choise to do whatever she wants to her body. And i think she has the right to abort a child, if that child is from, rape, or something she does not want, or does not want to be reminded of.
