    This thread is not meant to start a huge flame war. It is only meant to get people's feelings on the abortion issue, for the general knowledge of the board. Please do not post in this thread unless you want to clarify your vote.

    There are only two things regarding abortion about which I am reasonably certain. I do not believe that a fertilized egg is a human life and I do believe that partial birth abortion is murder. Somewhere in between the two, a fertized egg becomes a human life. At that point I believe abortion becomes wrong under any but the most extreme circumstance. I wish that I were wise enough to say where that point was, but I'm still trying to figure it out myself.

    Jeff - your pole is invalid as it does not give the option of voting "Abortion should not be legal under any circumstances".

    Pursuant to your request not to post unless you can back up your vote, I submit I would be happy to do both when there is a vote I can cast.

    I think the choice should be available for the first trimester, after that then its too bad, the person had plenty of time to choose.

    Thanks!

    This is purely opinion, however, no matter the circustance, nature should be allowed to take it's course. Sounds pretty harsh, but that is a product of my beliefs and values.

    Thanks DK, for making it possible to participate.

    even people born of rape or incest deserve a chance to live.
