I saw someone else start a debate on abortion, but there were quite a few replies so I thought I'd start a new thread :)
My personal views on abortion are: I am pro-choice but I feel that people should lean more towards keeping their child alive.
Here are my reasons behind my views: if a girl gets pregnant by accident or rape, especially if she's a teenager, and doesn't have the money to sustain the child, or it would be particularly traumatic for her going through the pregnancy (e.g. if she would be having exams whilst she was heavily pregnant) it would probably be best for the mother to abort.
Here is why I believe that people shouldn't always abort their child: My dad was the accidental baby of a seventeen-year-old, but instead of aborting him, she decided to keep him and put him up for adoption. He is now a surgeon that has saved many people's lives from cancer and has three children.
Obviously I understand that not all children that aren't aborted will have a good life, but in some situations, I think keeping the child would be a good idea.
Please share your views with me, I'd love to hear them!
