    Feb 28 2012: This has been a very insightful thread to read. I agree that it is very difficult to describe abortion as good or bad, and while I accept and understand the moral values on both sides, I am pro-choice. In cases of abuse (rape, physical, mental etc) I believe it is unreasonable to suggest that the mother (and even father in some cases) endure the post traumatic stress that will inevitably ensue. Also in many cases where these factors are considered, the child itself will be unsafe and anguished.

    I don't subscribe to "pro-death" or "anti-life" labels, I advocate for less children in foster homes, women's rights to health and safety, and minimal "backyard abortions".
