Whats your stance on it and why? I'm pro-choice, if it's not your body, it's not your call.
#3
You could at least have a relevant news story in OP as a ruse for an obvious abortion thread.

But basically the UK has pretty banging abortion laws and everyone else should follow suit.

Yeaaaah but that exact line could be used for those against abortion, you realise. The main point of people against abortion is that it's about the foetus (or unborn child, if you wish to phrase it that way), not the mother.

Calling it pro-choice and saying it's the mother's body is neither here nor there for people whose concern is the foetus.

Doesn't this all come down to when you think life begins which is totally subjective and therefore unnecessary to talk about?

It's not all that subjective.

Sentient life is built on consciousness. Consciousness of a fetus only begins when the brain is developed, around 24 weeks in to a pregnancy. In the UK this is where the limit on abortions is placed and I think they got it spot on.

These are done already, and it always gets really argumentative.

My 2 cents:
Every year almost 70x more people in the US are killed by being aborted then there are killed by violent crimes, and it's sold off as "Women's Rights". Yea, ok.

Oh lord, why.

We've already got like a bajillion threads on this, go bump one of those.

Pretty sure all of those are locked because the Pit can't have nice discussions.

I can understand why its needed for early term stuff, but why do women have to wait til the 25'th week anyways? If you want an abortion, get it early on, and it won't be a problem. To me, it's total bullshit when a woman claims it's "her body" at 20+ weeks. Take responsibility for your actions.

I have a few abortion opinions, let me share.
Humans do not gain consciousness till about 25 weeks of age, until then they are mostly animistic in the sense that they are a system responding to its environment, 0% consciously aware. Sorry mothers but your baby cant actually love you till then.

I think about 75% of anti abortionists are people who couldnt bring themselves to do it, or regret it, and now take up the heavy opinion.

I think if you look at it from a logical point of view, if you cant raise a baby you cant raise a baby, in the animal world we let them die on their own, at least we save them some suffering. Kill them early and it wont be as bad.

I'm not against it, but it shouldn't be paid for by the government.

Actually, I think they'd be absolutely right.

Also, deciding "This baby won't be bought up in an environment to thrive because I don't have the resources to provide for it and therefore I choose to abort it", is taking responsibility for your actions...what are you on about?

I'm pro choice but I think abortion is a shitty thing to do regardless. And i'm against late term abortions.

In all the instances of abortion with people I know the trouble is they don't actually want an abortion, what they really want is some magical solution so they can have a baby and raise it in a perfect, unrealistic environment, so they procrastinate about it in the vain hope that they can just have the baby and live happily ever after, but of course it doesn't and they then have to make the decision at late notice.

Abortion is illegal after a certain date of being pregnant.

As far as i'm aware the reason abortions were legalized in the first place was because women were getting them anyway but they had to go to back street "doctors" or take the DIY approach and use a coathanger or a knitting needle. Obviously a lot of women died this way and the only way to stop that happening was to legalize it, this fact seems to make the pro life/choice argument pretty much irrelevant.

Also i'm sorry to tell you but this thread is deformed and badly brain damaged, it will have no quality of life and when people see it they'll just be thrown into an uncontrollable rage.
I think your best option is to abort it...I'm sorry man.
DISCLAIMER: There's a very good chance that i have no idea what i'm talking about.

Anyone who doesn't think abortion is acceptable is an arsehole with no exception.

These threads always descend into lunatics quoting the bible and posting photographs of entrails. I have called it.
