    Why do women abort their babies?

    I understand there may be an ample number of reasons, but what, in your opinion would be the concensus?

    I think it's purely for selfish reasons for the most part.

    Your thoughts.

    I think the huge majority abort for convenience. I don't believe most women who abort their children would abuse them or neglect them if they had them; I don't believe most do it for medical reasons. Actually, we know these things based upon the information PP doles out. I think underage girls do it because someone else makes them...either parents, pimps or other abusers, who do not want to deal with the consequences of facilitating underage sex and who want to protect the offenders.

    I am adamantly opposed to abortion so I am not the target of your questions but the facts need to be addressed:
    1. 16% of all abortions are children, not women.
    2. Another 60% are under age 29.
    So we have almost 80% of abortions to women and children that do not want the babies and most likely do not have a clue on how to raise them.
    3. 55% of abortions are to women and children under age 25.
    4. Income plays no role in abortion as middle class women have the majority. 30K and above over 50% of abortions.
    5. 80% of abortions are to single women.
    6. 45% of women will have an abortion by age 45.
    7. 50% of all abortions are on women that have already had an abortion.
    8. 15% are paid with public funds.

    Irresponsible women and children get pregnant and can not care for their babies. Abortion is the convenience for these women. I believe it to be 9 out of 10 do it for this.
    None of those facts above and the fact that I oppose abortion have any influence in the fact that NO law anywhere stops abortion or even slows it.
    Personal responsibility, education and children being raised correctly is what will stop abortions.

    I can not beileve teen age girls still get pregnant in the numbers they do. Birth control is laying around on almost every street coner in the US. We should be teaching young men and women about responsibilty for their own actions not making it easier for them to get abortions.

    So I would say that yes abortion is a convience for most women who have them. And yes I oppose abortion but have no problem giving out bithcontrol to teenagers.

    Mississippi Abortion-Personhood Amendment Gets November Vote
    9/9/11 : Mississippi voters will be able to vote on the personhood amendment in the state when it goes to the polls in its statewide elections in November, but abortions will not necessarily be banned even if it’s approved.

    You realize we're living in the land of "If it feels good, do it", right?

    I support it and then again, I don't.

    It really depends on the situation. :/
    Such as if the baby won't make it or something is wrong with it to where it won't have a life worth living.

    As for a teenage pregnancy, thats very debatable.
    But birth control should be used in the first place.


    Now to get rid of an unwanted pregnancy, I would have to say no.
    Thats not an excuse, proper contraception should be used.

    But it's human nature to have sex for the pleasure. You can't really blame anyone for wanting to do what is simply human nature. :/

    This makes too much sense for most people (on both sides of the issue). I'm against abortion, except in cases where the mother's life is in immediate danger, or when the baby will die shortly after birth.

    It never ceases to blow my mind that many other people who're pro-life, are anti-birth control/condoms, etc. The more occasions safe sex is practiced among those who don't want a baby yet-the fewer abortions there are. It really is that simple.

    Its none of your business why they do it, it isn't your body, or your choice.
