I understand both opinions, but I have one remark:
If you think it's wrong to have an abortion just don't do it, but give others the choice to perform an abortion if they have a different opinion.
This way everyone's happy right?
Everyone except the 126,000 aborted babies per day, and those that empathise with with those little ones still under development.
So what's better: An aborted baby or a baby that's born in a family that doesn't want it or cannot financially take care of it. I don't know cause I'm not God, that's why I think everyone should decide this for him/herself.
That may be an excuse in some third world contries, but most places have government social programs for such situations, or independant charities to help. There are also more people willing to pay the expenses so they can adopt a baby that in countries like America that is just a cop-out
Do you live in america?
If someone wants a kid that badly they could always adopt any of a large amount of kids in foster care and orphanages.
Not to mention the fact that if abortions were illegal many people would try to keep the kid, knowing they can't afford it leading to more kids in the foster homes and orphanages.
Yes, I live in America.
Unfortunately, most people who want a kid that badly want to start raising it from the beginning. It is very difficult to adopt a child <1 year old as demand exceeds supply. It's kind of like how some people never wantto buy things used, but much more so...
There are tons of resources available for pregnant teens in America. Just search for problem pregnancy.
Here is a couple of links that you can give to people who can't afford a baby but don't want an abortion:
If those don't work out, let me know and I'll personally help or find someone who can.
