In the latest poll in our Underground Knowledge discussion group on Goodreads.com, we ask members Do you believe abortion should be legal or illegal? Interim results show three-quarters of poll respondents say is it should be legal.
In posing the question, we asked members to discount extreme cases (like pregnancies resulting from incest or rape as well as mothers who are too sick to carry a child full-term) when casting their votes.
Interim poll results are as follows: 75% say abortion should be legal; 18% say it should be illegal; and 7% are undecided.
A selection of poll respondents’ comments follow:
The government should keep their laws out of my vagina. How i feel about abortions is my business.
It’s obviously a freedom of choice issue. There’s no other argument to be had.
Interesting topic that will surely bring out people’s gut feelings and strong emotions. I will simply post this amazing video that I saw just a few months ago: http://www.wnd.com/2016/04/stunning-v…
Here in the US, it doesn’t matter much what we think, the Supreme Court already affirmed it as a woman’s right. I myself am against it, but I’m not going to begrudge a woman who has to make that choice. Instead of trying to chip away at access, government’s focus should be on making sure these clinics are safe and regulated.
Hearing male legislators talk about “gifts” of rape and braying other truly ignorant positions, a woman’s right to choose has to be protected. When it comes to aborting a child because you want one of a different sex I do feel very uncomfortable. When it comes to abortion because of sex without care or caution of birth control, I do feel very uncomfortable.
Birth control can fail and if a woman can’t afford a baby she should have the choice to kick it back to stardust so it can reincarnate and be with a family who wants it.
I think medical abortions are necessary for many reasons, but I do believe people need to take responsibility for the consequences of their sexuality by using birth control devices… Abortion is definitely a choice, a choice to terminate a life you created out of carelessness, be wise and and practice contraception with your partners. No excuses.
Abortion is the premeditated murder of a new human son of God ! All the living components to make an ascending son of God are in the living sperm-living egg union!
I do not like the idea of abortion or of suicide. While I have my preferences, I do not have the hubris to assume that my preferences gives me the right to determine actions that have nothing to do with me.
Poll ends June 30.
