Or they could give it up for adoption.
Yes of course! Unfortunately the population that abortion would be beneficial for are also doing drugs while pregnant. Drugs, cigs, and anything damaging the human and fetal body should be a criminal offense, imo. But well...
Notice how I didn't quote the rape part?
I don't disagree with you there.
Medical conditions are another case where I feel it should be up to the PARENT to decide.
What pisses me off are the "o crap, teehee, I'm pregnant and my parents will kill me" or "this will ruin my career" or "I'm still in college, blablabla" people that do this like they'd order a pizza.
Most of them live to regret it, and that really makes adoption the healthier option.
Regardless, it's not like McCain would ever push that hard in office to get rid of it. It just irks me when it's used as a campaign issue for both Republicans and Democrats since I believe, like pIot, it's a state's rights issue.
Yeah, people do make mistakes, but when they are using it as a form of birth control thats when the system is being abused.
