Here are all the facts, experiences, techniques and media/links we have on:
also known as Pro-Choice, Pro-Life
If you are pregnant, it is very important that you see a medical
professional. Also remember that abortion is not legal in all parts of
The loss of an embryo or fetus either
spontaneously (miscarriage) or induced (when a pregnancy is terminated
on purpose) before 20 weeks. After 20 weeks, the spontaneous loss of a
fetus is called a stillbirth. - From What to Expect
is a touchy subject.
- Pro-Life Stance: There are those who believe that to prevent a
pregnancy from coming to completion is murder, and more specifically
the murder of an innocent child. To them an abortion is like a mother throwing her own child off a bridge. They see the mother as evil and the doctor who helps as a mass murderer.
- Pro-Choice Stance: Then
there are others who believe that what ever the stage of life of a
child in the womb, it doesn't matter. The child is inside the mother, not the other way around. What ever rights the child has, the mother's rights outweighs them. Her life and her health are more important than that of the child she is carrying.
- Moderate Stance: There are those who believe that a
child isn't truly a child until specific things happen (movement,
emergence from the womb, breathing etc) and so it is not murder. They
believe that every child who enters this world should be loved and
wanted and cared for and that bring a child into this world when you
can't give it everything you need is cruel and ignorant.
