that's not abortion.HollyShort9 wrote:Here it isn't legal, but in some countries, you can wait until a year after the baby is born to abort it.

is there really any difference?
"ball of cells". give my *** a break. it just makes me mad. at what point can we say a baby's a baby? when its heart is beating? look, it's not about religion for me. it's that they say a child is a child at a certain stage, birth, and before that it doesn't have any rights, it's just a "ball of cells". that "ball of cells" is going to grow up, have emotions and feelings just like you, fall in love, get married, have children of his or her own. that "ball of cells" doesn't need to have a heartbeat to have basic rights that every human should.
abortion makes me angry as hell.
but then there's the rape factor.
that confuses me.
i understand the pain and horror a woman would feel if she was pregnant because of a rape, and i get that you wouldn't want to feel that, but i'm not sure that still makes it right. can't you just give it up for adoption?
when it's to save the mother's life, well, i understand then.
the whole issue is confusing to me, but i mostly know how i feel about it.
