    I believe that abortion is immoral and wrong. Life begins at conception and their is no excuse to abort as even doctors can not predict 100% of what will happen.

    I have the utmost respect for the deeply-held convictions of those on both sides of the abortion issue. However, I recognize that the right of a woman to choose is the law of the land, and has been for several decades. That right must be respected, and each woman must be allowed to make personal decisions about her own health and well-being without persecution or denial of health services.

    Real choice must include more than the choice of whether or not to have an abortion, and must begin with an informed choice about preventing unintended pregnancy. By providing all women with reproductive health care and family planning, as part of a program of health care as a human right, we can greatly reduce the need for abortion.

    I have 3 children. I would have an incredibly difficult time making the decision to terminate a pregnancy. However, I have not walked in someone else's shoes. Reasons such as rape or incest, etc. seem to be a no-brainer to me. I would also support abortion in the first trimester. If we are not going to take care of the children brought into the World, why would we limit someone's right to choose?

    I think women should have both the choice and the resources available to them. If anyone at the age of 18 can get their body tattooed and also at 18 or sometimes younger get their body pierced and . Why can women not have the choice and resources available to them? All three Acts involve doing something to the body. So why distinguished them? Only however if it is not a fully formed fetus.
