Response to Gov101 (Original post)

6. Interesting questions.

(A) Every option should be available, and the only limitations placed on those options should be the woman's own, based on her personal views of those options.

(B) Society has a responsibility to ensure that ALL options are available for a woman to deal with an unwanted pregnancy, including a safe, affordable abortion. Society owes this to itself as well as the woman in question, for the obvious reasons.

(C) There is only one relevant factor in an undesired pregnancy - the fact that it is undesired. I see no immorality in abortion; therefore, its 'morality' is not a matter of degrees that depend on circumstance. Being forced to carry a child one does not want, however, IS immoral.
