My current opinion? I say if you become pregnant, you should deliberate and come to a decision as quickly as possible as to whether you will keep the pregnancy. If you choose to abort, do it immediately, and don't burden yourself with guilt for destroying a few cells. If you choose not to abort, then commit to that decision and don't change your mind halfway through the pregnancy. The longer you wait, the more human the fetus becomes.
But I'm a male, so what do I know?

So she'd decided to abort again, once again I cowardly allowed her to take the weight of the decision. That was over 6 years ago, and sex has pretty much ended up as a thing of the past. . . . . . Reproduction is a complicated thing, I'd recommend to any man to make anti-conception their personal responsibility and make every effort to avoid accidental conceptions. While a woman may find an abortion justifiable, it can still do great harm to her psyche.

ETA: Notice this post is about the ethical question of abortion. As for the political question, I could give a whole analysis on that too, but to me it's not as important because political debate among us powerless is all fap fap fap anyway, so I'll just leave it at saying I'm pro-choice.

Not that I disagree with your opinion, but abortion is more a legal issue than a political or moral one.

So, ATS, Pro-Life or Pro-Choice?

Personally, I'm pro-life. I don't see "human error" a good reason to kill off future offspring. Having sex comes with it's own risks, STD's and pregnancy. You know this before you even consent to having it, and if you are capable of turning on a tv and watching any tv show/soap/program, you know about the options out there for what to do if your immediate bc fails. For example, if the condom broke or you forgot to take your pill... then there are things a woman can do in the next 24 hours to make sure she doesn't end up pregnant. I'm sure you've heard of emergency contraceptives? I've yet to hear a case of a woman who took those and still ended up pregnant.... I'm sure it's possible, but seriously what are the odds? Even if by some miracle you end up in that small number of people who exhausted all contraceptive possibilities and they all have failed, you as a consenting adult (and this counts teens, who are taught from 10 years old and older about sex and the causes of pregnancy), you are aware that this action can lead to pregnancy. By consenting, you are taking responsibility to allow your body as a home for another human being for the next 9 months. After that, there are millions of loving homes that would gladly take your child in and make sure he/she gets whatever they want and would be treated like the gift they are. How can you be so selfish to deny another HUMAN BEING the right to make their own way in the world.
