NOTE: I know I made some assumptions with this poll, like I assume someone that voted reason 3 would also accept reasons 4&5 so If this doesn't fit you please vote other and explain. Well, everyone please explain. What I'm looking for is where you draw the line.

I believe in abortion to save a womans life and also where the child would live a short pain filled life.

I chose other so I could qualify my answer. I believe in legal abortion for any reason, but that doesn't mean I believe it's always a good idea.

I second that, Holly. I believe that I do not have the ability to choose for a woman I don't know, so I support legal abortion on demand. However, there are reasons for abortion that I find immoral.

"I chose other so I could qualify my answer. I believe in legal abortion for any reason, but that doesn't mean I believe it's always a good idea."

That's how I feel as well. I guess I mean it to be from a legal point of view. I should have said that as well.

Wow, what a popular poll. Lol. BTW I voted #1, but that's not that surprising or interesting.

Misa, so not in the case of rape? What about incest/rape? Or a young child 8/9 who would have serious health risks, but probably not death.

Can I fence sit on that one lol.

Seriously I can understand why the option needs to be available for rape due to the long term psychological and physical repercussions (esp for very young victims) however I am still unable to get behind it 100% from a moral standpoint. I am not sure that having someone harm you makes it right to harm another.

seriously this fence is hurting my butt

Ya, more what I was looking for is from a legal standpoint "do you believe abortion should be available for the following reasons:"

Legally I see no point in putting restrictions on first trimester abortion so I guess the answer is yes.

I mean it is essentially a useless gesture (illegalization) that allows us to sit back and feel superior to those who would abort because we can then classify them as common criminals. It does nothing to offer protection to the unborn or to give the gestating woman the support she needs to be able to continue. It does not lower the abortion rate nor does it address the underlying issues.

For me first trimester abortion will always be a moral/ethical rather than legal issue so that is why I answered it as such.

I chose other because it is not so simple for me.


I believe that abortion should be available:


1) in cases of Rape


2) to save the mother's life - one life is not worth more than another and a choice must be made between the two.
