    Jun 11 2011: Considering that there is no consensus in the society or in the cientifical community about the beginning of life - regardin when it happens-, I believe that if the woman considers that abortion is the best choice, she should be allowed to do it. Abortion is a quite traumatic experience for any woman, whether it is made in a safe clinic or not. I wouldn't reccomend it, but if the woman chooses to do so, it is not within our right to stop her.
