If you choose to give your child up for adoption can you live the rest of your life knowing there is a child out there that came from you that chances are you will never see again? I don't think if you are having fun abortion should be an option but it is. That's what I tell people. Abortion should be for woman that are at risk due to pregnancy, a guarentee the baby will not survive and will keep mother from having future babies, and available to rape victoms (they need to have police report showing they made legal statement it was rape). I'm sure other people can name other examples. As far as my heart I have been told I have too big of a heart. I am always there for people I care about and have listened even if a stranger needed to talk about something.

I am pro-choice. Pro-lifers make me rage. Why should people interfere with other people's lives? If a woman feels as if she should get an abortion then she should get one! What if she was raped? What if she won't be able to support the baby? Why should she risk her life to make a baby she would give up for adoption. And when a woman is pregnant the baby is not fully developed therefore it's a potential for a baby, so overall no lives were taken. Sherrie you are quite ignorant. It's called civil rights and people deserve them.

http://www.lifenews.com/2012/07/26/planned-parenthood-may-face-familys-lawsuit-over-abortion-death/ This is exactly why prolifers do what they do. This women had a D and E It explains it in the article, we care about women and children http://www.lifenews.com/2012/08/03/planned-parenthood-never-called-911-for-abortion-victim/ Bob I am sure you offended alot of adopted people with that comment, Mothers who give their babies up for adoption that is a beautiful selfless act of love. Seems to me women put there life at risk having an abortion. A babys heart beat can be heard at 3 weeks. When you stop a heart beat, a life ends. Not a potenial life a life.
