Currently, In most states a woman can have an abortion for any reason whatsoever, regardless of circumstances or income levels.

Now understandably, a woman's choice is a womans's choice, and as long as abortion is legal it should remain as such. but laws in their current form are open to complete abuse by many people looking for mone and attention, all the while using children, or (unborn fetus's) as the leverage in their plans.

Take for instance, a wealthy couple that hve decided to put the descision to keep, or abort their baby in the hands of their web viewers..

Sick huh? Should abortion really be a "for any reason whatsoever no matter what you can have one" issue?

What are your thoughts?

The couple's page in the above comment can be found here:

Yes, I do think so. In general, I am against restricting the rights of hundreds of millions to avoid the IMO stupid actions of few. Some people drive drunk; some people deliberately drive unsafely. Should we restrict everyone's driving privileges because some choose to abuse them?

If this couple really means what they intend, and they really choose to abort based on anonymous voting, I imagine they'll find themselves in more than they expected. Abortion at any stage of pregnancy is no birthday party; the later you go, the worse it gets.

I took a quick look at the site.

No. I can see your point- and prolly might not agree with a vast amount of the reasons that people abort.
