    Abortion should be legal on demand up to 20 weeks gestation. After that, it should only be legal if the mother's life or health are at serious risk by continuing the pregnancy or if the fetus is not viable. There are probably some other grey areas where I'd be okay with abortion after 20 weeks if the mother's health wasn't at risk, but those would be extremely rare, and could be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

    Can't really answer the poll.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Legal upon request...... Its the woman's body, she should do what she wants with her own body.

    I think abortion is a medical issue that should be kept confidential between a woman and her medical practitioners.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Re: Abortion

    In a near perfect world, abortion could be, should be illegal, as it is murder.. of that child inside a woman.
    This world is far, very far, from perfect.
    We have to do what works best.

    You're probably right. Legalized murder must be especially delicious for the Enlightened.

    Re: Abortion

    Here we go, the bi-monthly regurgitation of the "Should Abortion Be Legal?" poll. Don't you guys get tired of debating this? I don't think I've heard one person change their mind or concede on an abortion argument in over a year of being on this website. Pretty sure it won't happen now. The only people these polls attract are 1) Noobs 2) Haters 3) People who make fun of people for recycling threads (me).

    In all other cases, ie if we're talking about an adult woman who is carrying a perfectly healthy fetus and should know better than to go get knocked up without a backup plan, she should not be allowed to haphazardly end a life.

    I want to live in a culture that has a healthy respect for life, and a sense of personal responsibility.
    If you want a healthy respect for life, we probably shouldn't view having a baby as a consequence.

    I completely agree that any woman--or man for that matter--has full right to do what they want to their own bodies, but the argument from most pro-lifers is that the fetus is not the woman's body.

    Or an unborn child as a disposable non-person that can be killed at will with no legal issues.
