when would you go there?
is it easy enough to just abort a fetus for the sake of the time 'not being right', or the partner 'not being right'.
what if the pregnancy will put strain on the relationship it won't survive?

what if the money is there, the partner is right, but you simply don't want kids?

i was engaged, got preggers, but there wasn't money, and i simply didn't see myself with kids. got it done at 5 weeks.

Any and all of the above. For me its up to the woman and her circumstances. I am pro-choice and the only time I was disgusted at someone for having an abortion, was a friend who planned the baby, went on fertility drugs, eventually got pregnant, a couple months down the line had an argument with the hubby and aborted the next day to spite him.

That was just to me the most immoral thing to do ever.

that's murder in my eyes. i hope he dumped her ass. surely then she can kill an allready alive human just for the shit of it as well.
and, i am allmost sure that you need your husband' consent to have an abortion? no?

Why should any man have the right to have that level of control?

Well I don't have the equipment to HAVE an abortion, but if I were to be party to such a decision...

Yes, but "time not being right" would have to be non-trivial.
Ex:
"But I wanted to buy that new car/house first", I'd have the kid.
"We're struggling financially and both working crazy hours, with no immediate hope", I wouldn't.

50/50, if the relationship "won't survive" in a way that the child could still have a meaningful life, two parents, etc... I would still consider having it. I mean at that point it doesn't sound like much would be lost, ties in with my reply below...

If I were male or female, I would give the other partner the option. I don't have to raise the kid myself. However if the onus were to be on me to raise it, but I don't want it... I wouldn't bring an unwanted child into the world. Plenty of those already.
