    • MyKayla,
      You wrote an interesting paper. I respectfully disagree with your claim. Abortions are very safe in America, and they provide women with options that concern their future. Are there moral questions? Yes, of course. Abortions are always a difficult choice. I would elaborate on your claims. There was a lack of sources and a lack of information. Life is valuable and wonderful, but the life of the mother also needs to be considered. A pregnancy club is a good idea, I would suggest also talking about different forms of birth control to help ensure that less abortions are needed. Churches especially could benefit from pregnancy clubs, seeing that 62% of abortions are done for christian women (Guttmacher Institute, 2014). Thank you for writing this. Hope that the pregnancy club works out!

    • Mykayla, I found your article very intriguing! I am not sure exactly where I stand on this issue, being Catholic, I want to say it’s wrong and everything happens for a reason, but at the same time, this topic is a “grey area” topic. Although a lot of abortions are from teenagers, there are a lot of abortions that occur for others reasons besides a result of careless unprotected sex. For example, the woman could have been raped or forced. Ask yourself the question, would I want to give birth to my rapist’s child? And what if the woman is sick or what if having the baby would do the woman more harm than good on both her mental and physical health? Or, what if having this baby at such a young age affects the baby’s health? As for adoption, yes, adoption is great. Personally, if I were put in a situation where I was pregnant, I would want to carry the child and then give it up for adoption. I know this comes with lots of problems like hospital bills and separation anxiety due to giving away the baby, but to better myself for the future, it would be the best choice. Having a child at this age would not be sustainable for me, although others could be able to do so. I really like your post and thank you for sharing your opinion, but I have one favor to ask. Can you elaborate on, “Sometimes abortions can leave pieces and parts of the baby body part because the doctor didn’t get all of it out,”? I would really like to see some sources on where that information was found. Thanks again. -Mae Jan
