Well as a male I gotta side with galatea (many pages back)
Isn't my decision or choice what she does with her body. To me that baby isn't viable life until it can live outside...until then it is part of her. Now I saw someone who posted...page 2 or 3 I think that abortions raise cancer stats tenfold. So does smoking yet we allow that...kind of a bad argument in this case I think
Male...prochoice...that's me..the nice part is we live in a country where you are free to hate me for being that way.

Nice technical term.
This sums up the entire position of the OP.

Ahh yes, the hot headed abortion debate.
Lets start by breaking this down on a financial POV. Anyone who can afford it will likely pay for the abortion themselves - Considering that going private is quicker. So that leads me to believe that anyone using tax payers money to pay for an abortion is probably poor and on the bottom end of society.
It would cost more in tax payers money to pay for the raising of a child. Now, the kid will probably grow up in a rough area with no opportunity to move up the scale unless its parents are extremely dedicated which i feel is unlikely. By not paying for the abortion all your really giving this child a chance at is failing miserably. Your practically inflicting a worthless life upon it.
And you know what? Yeah, it is my body. If i get knocked up it is half my fault. If i cant pay, the NHS should, you know why? because i'm a 20 year old whose trying to make ends meet. Its nothing to do with how much responsibility i have. Why should i keep a child i don’t want only to let it grow while i resent it for stealing my life? I don’t want to be a parent, but i'm not going to avoid sex.
The only thing that really pisses me off is when people use abortion as a contraception. Now THATS wrong.

Wow so you would rather pay for an unfortunate childs life to end more than you would be for paying to defend your country? To each his own I guess, but I must say I don't undertand or agree with your logic.

Hotsauce i'm still waiting on your source to back up this claim
That is very rare though. Most abortions are due to the fact that having a child would be inconvieient to the mothers future life.
It's your job to back up your claims with sources.

We should also outlaw masturbation, because all those poor little sperm aren't going to get a chance to seed an egg! OUTLAW MASTURBATION! NO innocent SPERM SHOULD HAVE TO DIE!

Yes and we know this is true because we went back in time and reversed Roe VS Wade and all those aborted children were alive and they all became criminals when compared to the stats we use to assume they wouldn't have if they had lived before the time travel right?
I mean how can you possibly attribute this to abortion? Hell I guess if we start killing the kids that aren't about to be aborted, what can we come up with there? We will see a drop in Job creation and entrepreneurial endeavor?
