Give me a break! If the unborn child or "fetus" is dead, then it needs to be removed PRONTO! There is no sense in a woman carrying a dead baby inside of her. Any other life-threatening complications should be dealt with by delivering (if viable) or removing the baby to protect the mother's life. The only other circumstance where I would be ok with abortion is in the event of rape as the woman had no choice in the matter.

abortion is not a choice..abortion may be a CONSEQUENCE of her prior POOR CHOICES

btw, the pill is VERY AFFORDABLE, walmart,cvs,walgreens all offer a generic drug program for 4-10 dollars, which include the pill
So if you have a house

Its your choice to not let people in or not.
Its your choice to serve food to people or not.
Its your choice to let guests stay the night or not.

So...Does that automatically mean if you invite a guest to stay a night at your place and you serve them dinner they have the right to live at your house rent free and eat your food for 9 months before you can kick them out?

You could just get a dataset that asks for income level and opinion on abortion and run a statistical regression on it... Or look at any of the many, many academic journal articles that use regression models to test the relationship between income and opinion on abortion. No sample taken from this forum will be representative meaning you can't make meaningful generalizations from it.

When you get pregnant, you get a choice.

Until that time, abortion is legal in the US.
What are you going to, hold her hostage and force her to give birth?

Abortion is legal.
Might as well embrace that idea.
You just contradicted yourself there.

If he's an unimportant donor and doesn't matter, then why does it matter whether he supports her or not? After all he's just a "donor".....

You cannot degrade men as unimportant at the same time as villifying them for not being important in the relationship.....

If you were responsible for a child in your house and kick them out of your house you would be in a heap of trouble.
