    Gift from god

    Abortion should never be an option! But teens shouldnt give the oppurtunity to be pregnrt watsover.
    If your thinking of abortion imagine that baby who chose you to be it's mother up in heaven and it's smiling down at you from heaven anticipating you giving it a smile and holding it close to your warm heart and then it decided it made the wrong choice for it's mother because you won't even let it live.
    Carrying a child is a blessing and some people wont except that gift
    My aunt and uncle have been trying to have a baby and they succeeded bcuz thats what happens when you have unprotected sex you get try to have a baby and will get pregnent eventually.
    If you took the time to read this and agree plese post gift from god
    I literally have tears rolling down my cheeks

    CHRISTIAN IDIOTS!

    After reading all of the reviews below mine id just like to say that all of you who think abortion is bad or that if uyou get raped it is your fault, you should just fu*k off. My girlfriend was raped when she was with her friends ( she was 13 ) and since she was pressured by her friends and parents not to get an abortion ( those stupid christian as$holes blamed me ) she died in child birth along with the baby. After that her best friend commited suicide when she got pregnant too. So all of you fu*k off and mind your own buisness. I lost my girlfriend and a good friend because of your stupid religious beleifs.

    Please read for an opinion on abortion

    Look at all of our economic problems. After i read everybody's reviews i researched statistics on how many babies are born per second and my results were a baby every 2.5 seconds... and thats just in one country. Maybe some people just can't afford to have a baby. Say that they were raped at a very young and innocent age, maybe 13. You need to look at all of these options. I certainly did. I WAS raped at the age of 13 and i had no choice. Here's my story:
    I was walking home from school with a friend and we lived 5 houses apart. I had walked her to her house and i still had to keep walking for me to pass those few other houses. While doing so a car pulled up, the passenger pulled me into the car and drove me all the way back and past the school, then pulled me into a nearby alley and started to have sex with me. That was about 3 months ago and i just recently got it aborted. I honestly didn't want to, but i had no choice. I have to go to scool and im only going into the eighth grade. Before you people go and say choose life, think about if that other person really could choose life. I wanted to, but i was extremely young and i wanted to at least have enough money to be able to support it. My parents didnt believe me when i said that i was raped and they threatened to me that if i had become sexually active that they would put me in a foster home. I also would have wanted the baby to hav a real home. If i was at least 17 i would have then chosen life. And im an honor roll student and id like to keep it that way. I you agree with my dtory an more thless that im absolutely broken hearted that i never got to see my childs face, post a headline of STOP RAPE TODAY and give it two stars. Thanks for readin my story. Ps i am very religious to all you others who are acting like @$$holes about OTHRR PEOPLES choices. Mind your own f^¿|<ing business

    Attention all non-abortion-peeps

    First: pregnancy at any time is one of the most painfull and traumatic experiences out there. Nuff said. Second: if a girl under the age of eighteen aand under the weight of 140 or so pounds gets pregnant by rape or sex she can die during childbirth. Third: people who say that if someone cant take care of the baby that they can just choose adoption but pregnancy, having a baby, and going through adoption all cost money genuises. Ps im a catholic and whoever said that rape is the raped persons fault is either mentally retarded or deserves to be.

    Abortion is a choice soley held by the woman carrying the child. Unless you have the means to be caring for a baby it needs to be either adopted, or even aborted. There are so many children in foster homes waiting to be loved and so many less wanting to adopt, especially in these challenging economic times. We need to learn to respect other people's decisions, even though you may not agree with someone's decision you have to respect their choice. I hope that in the future people can become more tolerant of one another.

    To sexual assalt victims

    To sexual assault victims: maybe you didn't want a baby. Still, abortion is NOT RIGHT. St. Gianna died rather than abort her baby. You do have a choice. Yes, it will probably be the hardest thing you've ever done but it's the right thing, and God will greatly reward you for it in Heaven. I would give up my life for any of my children because I love them more than enough even for that. You may say the baby will die anyway but that is not the point at all. You are choosing between murder and the greatest thing that you could ever do for anyone - something that you will be remembered for for a very very long time.

    Hi

    So about this whole abortion thing here is how i see it. I think it should be the mother to bes decision. If a girl decides she is not ready then who is anyon to tell her no. And yeah im christian andi believe in God. I get the whole religion sin thing.but u cant tell me all of u are perfect too. Get a grip guys. All this discrimination and hatred toward people just because of our own personal decisions that dont cocern anyone that according tthe bible is part of gods great bigplan is just stupid. God is the one who gave us the power tthink and he was the one who put the abortion idea in th inventors head. Please dont take ur hate out on people fo making the decision they think is right for their child. And no i have never bern pregnent and i do not plan til i feel i am ready. I cant even dream about what im going to go through but i know i will make the right decision whatever it is. God does love us all andno we r not asholes or jerks btw. Christian are just following a different path and its okay. Just calm down evrybody.

    Why u shouldnt have a baby...

    Ok. I am a 15-year-old mom. My boyfriend just had to bring me into having sex. And like 7 weeks later when I find out I was prego my bf leaves me. I think my baby is the cutest thing ever but I am like broke and I have to do 2 jobs. Babysitting and gardening. It is horrible. My parents have to watch my baby while I am working my @$$ off. They said I had to pay them for watching my baby. What kind of parents do that? Abortion is an option people. I am a Lutheran.
