I wish to thank everyones input on my previous post. I think it is fantastic that every individual has the ability and freedom to choose what they believe. But I am curious if any one knows the origin of abortions. How long have abortions occured at least in the United States anyway. I wonder why the first abortion occurred. I will bet that there was a religious reason behind it. Such as having a child out of wedlock and knowing you might be asn outcast in society. Like I have said I am not religous but I dont believe thjat one can count out religion as a reason for some abortions especially in the early 1900s. Thoughts anyone?
