Abortion is a hotly debated issue and I am curious to know what our generation thinks of it (most of the people on this website are younger). I read that during the bush administration abortion rates actually went down.
I personally think it's murder and should be outlawed excepted in cases of rape or mother's health. I don't understand why a woman can't put their newborn up for adoption when there are so many willing foster parents.
Of course I'm not a woman, so I'm biased. But I've heard church pastors talk after time many women who choose abortion regret what they did.

I've tried to have an intelligent debate about this countless times on this site and elsewhere, and it really seems futile to me, so I'm not going to get into whether it's "right" or "wrong", instead, I just have one comment to make:
"But I've heard church pastors talk after time many women who choose abortion regret what they did."
People regret decisions they make all the time. Two people might make the same decision about something and one might regret it and the other might not. Your pastor might tell you about women who regret getting an abortion, but there's probably countless others who don't regret making that decision. I guess my point is, just because someone might regret the choice they make about something does not mean that they should not be allowed to make that choice. With rights come responsibility. Most big decisions that a person makes potentially has good outcomes and bad outcomes---we try, or at least should try, to make those decisions as best we can, based on our knowledge, understanding, personal beliefs, and knowing the possible pros and cons, and possible outcomes.
If you believe that abortion is murder, I'm not going to change that belief. But if you believe that women should not have the choice to have an abortion because many women regret getting abortions (which I'm assuming you do believe, because otherwise, why would you write that?), that's a very poor argument.5
