In another thread another poster and I are having a disagreement about abortions. The one poster is of the opinion that the only abortion should be illegal with the exception being putting the mother's life at risk and not for cases of rape or incest because it is murder. Me I believe it should an exception because honestly we should not victimize a rape victim more than twice (the initial rape and the court case that coincides with the charges of rape) and that murder while not ideal can be the best option for the mother's psyche. My question is should not even be on the table or should it be a few exceptions?

Women should be able to get an abortion for whatever reason they want.

Of course the mother shouldn't be forced to give birth. The right to life people have made it clear that women who have been raped, the fetus has a life threatening issue, or the mothers life is at risk, that abortion is the same as a surgical procedure to save the mothers life.

Why is it so hard to protect the mother as well as a healthy fetus?

We want to stop abortion on demand, and especially late term abortions.


This poll is not well thought out. If a mother wants to keep her baby, why would abortion come into play? What is the difference between Yes and Only if the mother wants to get an abortion? This wasn't thought out well at all. There are many more circumstances to consider.

Should a rape victim be allowed to get an abortion in the 3rd trimester... NO! Should a rape victim be allowed to get an abortion as soon as she knows she is pregnant, YES absolutely.

What's the difference between Option 1 and 2? Is option 1 if the "father" is pregnant in some sort of lesbian relationship?

Choices #1 and #2 are the same thing, Choice #2 simply being more explicit - the "be allowed" wording in it redundant with the "only if the mother wants" wording present in both Choices #1 and #2. For the same reason, Choice #4 is logically inconsistent, the "be allowed" wording in it conflicting with the "only if the mother wants" wording in it.

An abortion is between a woman and her doctor.

Always have been and always will be pro-choice. It's a personal decision. No one else's business.
