Legal during the first trimester but also allowed in certain cases beyond that period.

This is the only thing that I'm less than liberal on. I just can't fathom being AGAINST the death penalty but pro-abortion? To me that's like letting the guilty live but punishing the innocent?

Anyway, if I were the absolute ruler of the world I still wouldn't make abortion illegal at all, because while personally I'm against it, I don't think it's right for me to decide that for other people.

I agree with GoLleyt

Legal during the first 3 months is pffff... why not the first 4th months? where's the limit?

I don't know what 'partial birth' or 'trimester' is, but abortion should be legal.

Partial-birth abortions make me sick to my stomach...but no one should really have any say in it except the mother so I'd have to say it should all be legal.

IMO, abortions should only be legal where the health of the mother is in jeopardy.

the abortion should be "not illegal" (that is not the same that to be "legal"), The abortions should be just practiced in Hospitals of the social security (free), where Psychological support will be given to the woman and to bring options to her to avoid the abortion if is possible (adoption or to raise her son). It is necessary to support her, not to punish her. But neither to congratulate her if she does it. And under no circumstance the abortion must be promoted as one way of natal control. The baby is a human being, don't forget that

IMO only in cases of rape etc.....its not fair on the mother or the child,especially since it was not a consecquence of stupidity or self fault.
otherwise i dont think its fair that someone can go have sex and not be prepared to take the consequences for their actions (it sounds old fashion,but in this day and age people are becoming more and more careless and think that they can do what they want and fix it by an abortion or somthing (unfortunatly in most teen cases it seems the abortion looks like a good way out,but ofen leaves the mother feeling guilty and well ike shit afterwards
.) people should take responsibiltiy for their own actions.IMO.

JUST DO IT.
Its not over at 22.

Arg, I voted for the totally wrong option.

I wasn't reading and voted for the last one, but meant the first one

Anyhow, in my opinion, a womans body is a womans body. I don't see how men really deserve any input on this matter from a legal standpoint, seeing as they will never be in that position, and should have no say over a woman's body anyhow.

1000% agree. But the body of the women finishes where start the body of the baby (that is not "a part" of the woman body but is independent), same the rights. The babies has one undeniable right: THE RIGHT TO LIVE.

But as i said above is a very complex situation. The woman that choose to abort shouldn't be punished as criminals, but the abortion shouldn't be promoted as a solution to any trouble (not talking on raping, or danger of death to the mother) or "fleeting sex desire".

And while it may be the woman's body, I don't think she should have the right to abort the baby without the father's consent - unless he's a criminal or something.

Whether or not it's her body, she chose to have sex with him, and now what resulted is a part of him too.
