      After reading a article about abortions on a blog I visited. I would like to know your views on if abortion should be allowed.

      I agree with the views that this person stated in his blog on some parts. But adoption is always another solution. Nobody deserves to die.

      I would post the link, but I can't until I have 10+ posts :p

      I have never been in agreement with abortion myself and I do not feel that any baby whether it be fully formed or not should be killed. The problem is though some women have to take this root if it means their health may be affected or if it's down to cases of rape that she became pregnant. In these cases I feel it's a totally different situation and they should have the option to abort if they wish to. It's women who get pregnant after not taking precautions who choose abortion as a form of birth control that I do not think should be allowed to have an abortion.

      As a person who only lives because my mom had a miscarriage, I feel it's in a mother's or couples choices to have an abortion or not. It's none of our concerned what they do till after they give birth and adoption is not always the best thing for a kid.

      I'm pro-choice, since it's their choice and not mine.

      I wouldn't abort a child, but every case is different and should be treated accordingly.

      I'd say I'm pro-choice too. And why? Because I'm a feminist, so in some ways, I "approve of" abortion & also, I think it should be a "Woman's right".

      Being a feminist doesn't mean you have to support abortion. They have an ideology called pro-life feminism:

      Okay, paradoxal for me to understand them. Why do they call themselves "feminists" then?

      "Pro-life feminism is the opposition to abortion by a group of feminists who believe that the principles which inform their support of women's rights also call them to support the right to life of prenatal humans. Pro-life feminists believe abortion has served to hurt women more than it has benefited them."

      Their justification to the title of feminist is in the opening title. Also you need to consider the idea that feminism isn't a homogeneous ideology, it has various ideas that are all very different and all claim to be feminists.

      Abortions should not be used as a form of birth control. Other than that, if mother or baby or both are in danger then I see nothing wrong with it.

      So in "extreme" cases? Like if the baby dies or something like this?

      I can't exactly say that I approve of it, but its the woman's choice to make, no one else.

      Although there are stupid people who as Spice pointed out use abortion as birth control. I remember reading a story about a husband in the 80s who refused to used condoms and forced his wife to go through 12 abortions within 10 years.

      Every case and everyone is different, it is not up to us to judge, freedom of choice means just that, freedom of choice x
