Well with regard to rape, only between 1 and 2 % of rapes lead to pregnancy although some statistics will say up to 5%. The likelihood of it is low
and it varies depending on what study you read so rather than everyone thronging statistics around all I would say is this. Why should the child be
killed because of the act of violence against the mother. That to me is still wrong as two wrongs don’t make a right, its still murder, first the
mother is raped then kills her unborn child. For me that is still wrong.
I mean nearly 200,000 out of that only 52 were aborted because the mother might die when giving birth. I think this is justifiable but would also ask
why the mother should live and the child die. The mother has probably already lived perhaps 30 years of her life.
Wow...Statement done in total arrogance and ignorance. Dominating male aren't you ? It's one thing to have a Conservative view on abortion but it's
another to accuse and child barring mother of being a killer if she chooses to abort a pregnancy conceived out of an act of violence.
Plus, in my book, it tests can provide 100% results that the baby will b e born with any birth defects, then the mother and father have a right to
chose if that child is to be born or not.
Now on the other hand.....If teenagers having fun get pregnant then all efforts must be provided to them if they are to have that child and give it up
for adoption. An abortion is such a case would be a terrible decision in my opinion.
For those that take a religious view of this situation, God gave man the ability to discover science and to comprehend all that he can about the
makings of the universe, God gave man the ability to choose and to do what is done in his name for the greater good. In one's mind( Mother and father
), if terminating a pregnancy is for the greater good of those involved and the possible future of the unborn child, why would these two people be
considered sinners and why would it be wrong for them to abort if they truly believed that it was done for the greater good of all !?!?!?!
A woman should have full right to what happens to her body at all times, any violation by anyone or any organization is in total discordance with the
charter of rights.
