Should abortion be permitted? Yes

why? So you don't have an innocent child suffering because 1) you don't want it 2) you can't efficiently take care of it 3) not a drain on society 4) adoption isn't the best in your location.

Within reasonable time span yes.

You hear lots of stories about young girls getting raped, In this case it isnt their fault if they fall pregnant.
Also contraception isnt always 100% effective, Accidents do happen.

Its never going to be good for a child to come into a broken home or being baught up by a resentfull mother who clearly doesn't want the child.

i'm a yes for abortion too.

Was hoping to see if anyone goes for no and hear their views.
Since everyone is a yes, here is the next question:

Till which period of pregnancy should abortion be permitted to?

I think what its already permitted too is fine, But the earlier the better.

That last question depends, what do you view as living. Personally I think probably before the 3rd month is fine.

It should be permitted to 18 years after the birth.

i think it all depends on the situation, and timing. i'm in two minds about it though - one day i argue for, the next day i'm against.

Yes for the most part.
WHy? because there are some pregnancy that you really dont want happening but it did.
However, this might also cause more people to be less careful because they know they can get an abortion anytime.

Some European countries only allow abortions to be performed within 12 weeks of pregnancy, which is a good policy. Any later and the fetus becomes too human-like.

Nothing like scientific precision to influence policy-making.

Yes, and I actually wrote a short paper about this last semester, but I'll elaborate later...maybe.

Perhaps I'm just not knowledgeable enough about prenatal development, but science does not seem to clearly delineate when a fetus qualifies as fully human. I would love nothing more to adhere to a scientific definition, but such a decision seems to be largely dependent on one's values in this case.

Current US law defines a fetus as fully human when it is able to live outside the womb (with artificial support), but this seems to be an arbitrary trait to choose. Depending on their ethical leanings, people can just choose different traits (start of brain development, start of quickening, etc.).

Well I'm against abortion. BUT in cases with someone being raped then there should be an exception. I'm of the mind that if you don't want to get pregnant then you should keep your legs closed.

Im against it personally but I wouldnt judge anyone who does have an abortion. It all depends on the persons situation.
So I guess that means yes it should be permitted, it is here already.
As in time, it should be within 3 months I think, sounds kinda long anyway.. but you can actually go around for a couple of months not realising your pregnant :p

Yeah i had that problem, but it was a wanted baby so no talk of abortion there :p You need time to consider abortion aswell, so 2 months would be too short.

Yes. It shouldn't be the easy option and certainly not as a safety net to do without contraception but yes. Within reasonable time and for reasonable measures then certainly I'm all for it. I have absolutely no desire to ever have children, I have little to no maternal instinct and if I found out I was pregnant tomorrow, there would be no hesitation for me.
