When it comes to this topic its a 50/50 reasoning. First and foremost, abortion is a sin and its prohibited in the Bible.Only God is allowed to take away life.On contrary, there are occasions when you cannot keep the pregnancy at all costs,especially if the pregnancy is as  a result of rape or incest,although some women might take advantage when abortion is legalised and go ahead misbehaving.

I feel like abortion is a very personal matter and a very hard choice to make. This is something that will stick with you for the rest of your life. You will always wonder if you made the right choice or not. If a young girl is raped and carrying a baby, is it fair to make her brink this child to full-term? My answer is no on this one. She should be able to abort this child so that she can move on with her life and try to put the horrible event behind her. But forcing her to bring this child to full term could cause anyone to kill themselves or try to harm the child growing inside of them

Abortion is not for everyone and it should be a choice that any individual should be allowed to make on their own. I'm not saying to use abortion as a form of birth control, but if something happens to use abortion as an alternative to fix this problem. Nobody should be forced to get an abortion by their parents or even their partner. Each woman should do this on their own and the decision should be left up to her if she wants to get an abortion or not. 

Furthermore, there are many other reasons an abortion might be necessary. If this is to save the life of the mother or the baby inside of her has major medical issues there is no reason for a woman to deliver a baby that is dead inside her womb. So yes, in some cases this is necessary and must be done. However, people have a free choice to make and nobody should have the right to take this away from them. No matter if you don't believe in abortion, others might.

Actually, abortion is being done even in the hospital and some private clinics, not in the sense that it is the decision for the weekly born or 1 month old fetus, but they terminate the life of a child because it will be bad for the baby and the mother if they will continue the pregnancy. Some leads to decision that they choose the mother over the child because one can only survive. If there is a cancer or tumor inside a mother, and if it will not possible to bear a child on that condition, there are process that they terminate the baby. It is sad but even when the abortion is the decision of a mother, they still need to decide because it is their life. I never been a follower of abortions but when I learned that it is happening, I fully understand how hard it is for a mother.

The issue of abortion has been a controversial social discourse for a long time now. The level of contention it has generated can not be overemphasized. Some countries has faced harsh criticism for the legalization of abortion while others have taken it at face value. But whichever side of the divide one falls, it's as result of personal belief.

From moral standpoint, it is an abominable act to be perpetuated by an individual or a as collective activity engaged in by group of persons. Abortion is an act condemned in the strongest of terms by Christianity because it's seen as a form of murder. And right up til now, it's still perceived as such except some doctrines who are trying to alter the way it has been perhaps due to social intervention.

However, medically speaking, abortion is rarely encouraged especially if the life of the mother is at risk. In such instances, it can be accepted as a matter of necessity not as it's popularly done by those who just want to get rid of the baby for whatever reasons best known to them.

The simple definition of abortion is the evacuation of a foetus or premature birth.The answer to the above question is conditional.
Abortion is allowed in a situation where the pregnancy is foreseen to cause loss of life to the mother carrying the foetus if the development continues,  there are case of ectopic pregnancy and other medical conditions. In this case, Yes abortion should be allowed for a legally married women.
Abortion should be totally discouraged for those who carried it out simply because they are not ready to have the baby Which they consider as untimely pregnancy. Most religions preached against this kind of abortion because it is normally unacceptable. Most abortion of this nature are most time carryout illegally mostly by unprofessional medical personnel that mostly lead to death or permanent damage

Just like I pointed out in a recent thread not long ago, am not a supporter of induced artificial miscarriage or abortion like you called it. It is one process I wish was never introduced or thought of to begin with. It has taken way too many lives in the process. Women should be more aware of their actions. You shouldn't engage in the act of making a child if you're not ready to have one, that includes the men too who indulge in the baby making process.
However, they are certain situations which unfortunately leads to cases where abortion seems like the right choice of action. A commenter below made one instance of a girl getting pregnant after being raped. Exceptions can be allowed with the like of such situations.

Having said all above, I like to think that abortion is a decision left only to the carrier. No institution or law should be allowed to meddle in ones personal life as abortion itself isn't an easy decision.

Abortion is such an emotive topic but I always felt that every case should be judged on its own merits. I am not in favour of abortion generally but there are circumstances where it is completely understandable. For instance if the mother's life would be in danger through having the baby or if it was clear that the baby would be so handicapped that it would have no quality of life.

I was in a position once where I was offered a termination because my contraception had failed. I had not planned on another baby and my marriage was very rocky. I decided I would carry on with the pregnancy and it turned out to be the best decision of my life. I had a lovely baby girl who is now almost 32 and has always been a joy to me.

What I do object to is women who have sexual relationships with several partners not caring whether they get pregnant or not. My granddaughter's mother had two terminations after she was born which I thought was disgraceful. Although I know she could never have looked after a child it just seemed so cruel that some people long for a baby and can't have one while she became pregnant so easily but cared nothing for those babies' lives.
