Do women have right to choose abortion or not:
I would like to ask you how you feel on the subject, abortion. This subject seems to brought up quite often during election time. JJ you and many others here seem to be quite opinionated so I thought you might like take a crack at this subject.

Anwser to Question:
I being a male and speaking on the abortion issue will not really hold very much validity. I will try to make an attempt.
first off: it is not my body to begin with nor is it my decision when a women is pregnant to keep or abort a child.
What is my decision, lets say a women that I am in love with decides to abort and not keep the child, but in her decision to abort she wants me to pay for the abortion. In conscience I would never pay for any abortion, to me that would be like hiring a hit man to take out a baby and I would rather spend time in jail.
To me there is no such thing as a illegitimate child born in or out of wedlock, there is only illegitimate parents. But it is not my decision to abort it, it is hers and hers alone. Some will say that men have a choice if or not an abortion is to take place, it is her body that has to carry a child and ultimately her decision. It takes 2 to lay down and make a child, it takes a parent to stand up and say I will raise that child, it takes a parent to instill in that child manners, and hopefully a conscience and an inner well being. Who am I to tell a women what she can and can’t do with her body, there is a thing called the Era this was meant to guarantee women their rights, so no matter how I view abortion the law gives women the right in Roe Vs. Wade. “It is the law” I do not anilize the law nor will I try too…that is for courts to decide and people have to live with their own decisions in life. There is no simple answer in this matter, there is to many variables.
Anyone that would like to comment feel free to do so….I don’t have the answers all I can say on this subject is how I feel.
