    If circumstances don't allow you to keep the baby, bringing him or her to this world will only make things worst.

        Abortion's really cruel cos i've seen the video of how the process works during my biology class in secondary school last time. It's really heart wrenching to see the baby's fingers weakly clasping the mum while the machine's trying to suck it out. I still feel like crying even now when i think of it.

        That said aside, abortion may be cruel, but i don't think it's wise to insist on giving birth if the parent/s is/are not emotionally mature & financially stable enough to make sacrifices & take good care of the baby. There's no point bringing up a baby in dire circumstances, cos it'll only traumatise the child for life.

        Giving birth & then putting the child up for adoption's a better idea. Just my

          I do agree with crazyshoaholic... there are so many couples out there who are unable to concieve. Adoption will be the only way out for them. But i have come across females who would rather murder their own baby then to give it up to others.

              i had to abort my baby only because it stopped growing. during the same week, my girlfriend nearly aborted her perfectly healthy foetus because she is not prepared for another. here i am crying for the one i lost, while she did away with one.

              i would say to consider adoption if the situation allows. its an innocent life ..

                your description makes me want to cry too .. when i received my report (my gynae sent the aborted foetus to the labs), i tear at the sentence that said: "received in multiple pieces .."

                  By the way, there are many women out there who don't realise that even at 2 weeks after conception, the baby already has heart beat. Alot of people think that the baby is only a lump of tissue, they are wrong!

                      hey, let's not be too quick and judgemental and brand them for their actions unless we are in their shoes.

                      I am sure no one wants to be branded as a murderer.

                      for whatever decisions they have taken for better or worse, let's be compassionate and help them move on in life.

                        Murder is indeed a strong word although I can understand how some cannot see it any other way. I have to agree with Alba that the counseller should be there to help the person handle the situation with no prejudice, no bias.

                          Excellent point. The mother goes through A LOT of trauma during the abortion -and we must bear in mind that sometimes this is may be a route she simply does not want to travel.
