If you are not ready to be pregnant, you are not ready to have sex.I'm for abortion. I think people who are "pro-life" really underestimate the hardships of pregnancy. Yes, the baby can get adopted. But the woman who goes through this pregnancy will have to watch her own health go out of control, go through sometimes very severe financial and emotional hardships, and the whole time, she is expected by society to not drink alcohol, smoke or do anything that might harm the baby. Plus, after the baby is born, post-natal depression, as well as vaginal damage may occur.
And say if you are a young female at university or high school and you get pregnant. People ARE going to look at you, judge you, yell at you 'slut'. Imagine if your baby was the result of a drunk night, a sexual assault, a bad relationship, abuse, etc. Imagine being reminded of that for 9 months, and quite possibly the rest of your life.
People who are against abortion heavily romantise the pregnancy process. Not only is it physically rough, but mentally, devestating at times. It is horrible that people are even against condoms, the morning after pill, etc. When a woman has a kid, there is never a 100% guarantee that she is going to love it.
I often hear this argument- 'people should only get abortion if they were raped' which is very stupid and naive. So an abortion centre is full of only rape victims? (oh the creepy guys that is going to attract) Woman won't accuse their stupid boyfriends for not wearing a condom for rape? Resulting in more legal costs, and eventual emotional harm. It can take months for someone to be declared guilty, and by that time, an abortion may not be physically safe for the woman. As a female myself, and the thought of my sister or my friends experiencing pregnancy because they weren't allowed an abortion really makes me so sad, as they couldn't handle it, no one possibly can, and no one should be expected to.
