I agree, that has been my thought for some time, an 'very early' abortion for 'those' pregnancies where the
child is NOT wanted, should be terminated immediately, for the sake of both the mother and child.
I will be happy when there is a pill than can be taken 'very very' early in the pregnancy, or the
morning after pill, that is safe and dependable to cancel out any possibility of a pregnancy or
terminate a vey early one, we allow and condon pills and jellies etc that will make sure pregnancy
does not occur, and kills sperm by the million, same should be allowed for early pregnancies, and
if not, then an abortion should be available.
No woman who is pregnant should be 'made' to carry a child to term, just to give it away, many things
happen during pregnancy, it is not an easy journey, and giving birth is not an easy task.
I would choose an abortion over giving my newborn away, I think that is cruel, one does not know
what kind of life the child will have, who the parents will be, and I would not want my child going
through life knowing I did not want him/her.
I have known married couples who chose an abortion rather than bringing another child into the world,
for the sake of not only the newborn, but more so for the existing family, as they allready had
more than they planned for, and life was not easy, but very difficult financially which also brings
other emotional stress with it.
Sure it was a careless moment in there lives, doesn't mean they have to live with it, they made the
wise decision, very very early, then made another decision so that they would not become pregnant
Not a situation where they are pulling a 5 or 6 month fetus out of a pregnant woman, but terminating
a pregnancy in the first 6 weeks.
I do not agree with late abortions, unless there is a serious medical problem.
