If you're going to penalize people for aborting fetuses, you may as well penalize women for have a menstraul cycle or a man for ejaculating while not having intercourse.
If the woman has an illness that will mean that she will definitely die if she continues the pregnancy, then I know this is a very complicated one but I would still have the baby.
I'd just like to add about eight-year-old's becoming pregnant and the baby killing them that if you are capable of having a baby, your body is most often ready to have a baby.
However, if she is stupid enough to behave in a manner that gets her pregnant before she feels she is ready to have a baby then she deserves all of the consequences and should deal with them, and think a bit more before she partakes in activities that could get her pregnant again.
If the child the woman is carrying is diagnosed with one of the illnesses that would mean it would definitely die after only a week or two then I think that she should still have the child and give it that week or two of life.

Do you think that all those murdered babies whose mothers "weren't ready" deserved the death penalty? Did they not deserve to take that first independent breath? Did they not deserve even a chance at life? Can we justify the intentional ending of the life of an unborn human?

I promise all who read this, that if I am either raped or simply careless, I will not ever chose to end my own child's life.

I'm glad that works for you and I wish you all the best, but it doesn't work for everyone, and you don't get a say in what everyone else does. Sure, the idea that abstinence is unrealistic because hormones can't be controlled may not be totally accurate. Some people, likeyourself, can control that sort of thing. A lot of other people can too, but that might not mean they abstain, it might just mean that when they have sex hey do it on their own terms. And then ther's a whole lot of people who are in circumstances which you know nothing about and things happen. To expect some people to carry a baby to term, let alone raise it, on top of everything else that's going on in their lives is completely unrealistic.I don't really like the idea of abortions either, that's why I think we need better sex ed classes in schools, so people will be prepared and the number of unwanted pregnancies will go down. Rather than pro-life or pro-choice I would label myself pro-contraception.Well, sorry about the rambling, but my point is, answer the question. tell us what you think about abortion, don't tell us when to have sex.
Also, (just a general suggestion), if someone reading this was a 19 year old virgin, maybe that could be because they are not married yet. There are people in this world that still believe in no pre-marrital sex, I myself being one of them. Sorry if I sounded rude, it just truly frustrates me, when people wonder why people who are in college or after college are still virgins. That's their decision be it religious or not.
Second of all, improve how? They give us all they are allowed to legally teach us. Just this year, they forced my class to see pictures of people suffering STDs, and let me tell you, it fully convinced me to abstain.
Third of all, things do not just happen, you made the decision to go see your boyfriend/girlfriend, in a potentially risky situation, and you chose to ignore the moment where things did become risky.
Sorry if I seemed mean, but I had to let that off of my chest.
