I personally think aborting a life is wrong, the couple wanting the procedure was irresponsible about getting pregnant in the first place.
But again, we're not here to tell people what they can and can't do. So it's time to stop controlling others and worry about setting a good example instead.edit on 26-1-2012 by L00kingGlass because: (no reason given)

don't say well said. I accept the fact that I am heartless on these issues and cold; without empathy for many. My post after that one shows that heartlessness. I simply wish to see the counter to cold, emotionless logic.edit on 26-1-2012 by Gorman91 because: (no reason given)
It's not up to science to answer ethics questions.

Life begins when an infant takes their first independent breath, if life did begin at fertilisation, then it would be classed as murder. Hence why abortion is perfectly legal.

I'd say abortion at a certain point is murder. I don't consider a cell cluster to be alive until it has brain activity. At that point, it's really "alive."
But to make things easier, don't have an abortion.
