Whether abortion is right or not depends entirely on the situation at hand.
If for any reason you don't think that the child being brought into the world can have a proper upbringing, and that at that stage in your life you won't be able to provide everything the child needs, it makes perfect sense to have an abortion, because what is the point of having a child that you can't keep happy.
However, that doesn't mean that abortion should be used as an easy way out to do just about anything and then get rid of the child. People should learn to face the consequences of what they do, and after all what you are killing is a life. There are other ways to prevent getting pregnant rather than removing the life once its already within you.

As anything this too has its oen advantages & disadvantages-It's legal in cases of congenital malformations,rape,challenged mental state of mother or serious physical illness etc. but in today's world of awareness I feel this fecility is being taken advantage of-I come across so many woman who are reluctant of using contraception...only on the basis of misconceptions abt them.so many women prefer"Safai" -tha's the word used by them to the extra bleeding of IUCD.so many don't take pills to maintain their weight & don't want motherhood to conserve figure,it's easiest escapism for youth to have fun ,you suddenly find increase in cases after Navratri..yes sex determination is problem here eventhough illegal it's done here...oh daughter -in-laws are compelled to do so or their life is worse than hell...
so of course abortion should be personal decision as it's woman who has to live with or without that child...but again it should be weighed as it can no way be used as escapism from our responsibilty.....!!

this is a hard thing to answer. it's either a yes or a no.
Abortion should be allowed IF one GETS raped and gets pregnant and doesn't want to keep the child because of what happened....
although it isn't the childs fault yet also it's not the person's who got raped.
now if someone got pregnant intentionally and they knew about the consequences...then abortion should not be porhibitted.
Because it's not the baby's fault that one got pregnant. it was ones decision to do what they did. they should have thought about it.
why kill an innocent life for the mistake you caused?? that's something to think about.
that's my opinion.
also killing an innocent life is sad. if you got raped well it's up to the person. i mean after what happened...maybe abortion...but I don't know.t he question is quite hard to answer and requires alot of put in thought.

motherhood should never be a punishment for having unprotected sex. Many kids today are having unprotected sex all the time, and not having an abortion available during teen years can ruin the education of a prospering teenager, taking care of the baby would have to become the primary aspect in their lives.
Also, in some cases this leads to the parent blaming the child and abusing the child because the parent (subconciously) blames the child for not having a good life.
and yes, abortion should never be used as a form of birth control. Instead of preaching about the fact that abortion is wrong, we should teach children about the consquences of having unprotected sex, and what could be possible outcomes, but that doesnt mean that you have to scare the child into thinking that sex is taboo. Being a teenager myself, i am disappointed in some indian parents who refuse to accept teens who become pregnant before marriage. It is the parent's duty to accept the path which their child will chose, whether it is abortion or keeping the child.

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.
Well although I agree with most of gigli's views, I don't agree with this sentence especially. Becoz I still don't understand who gave anyone the right to kill a life..makes no sense to me. Its not just your body...its also the body of another life form or a potential life form. You don't have any right over some one else's life.
