I fully support women who choose not to have an abortion under any circumstances for whatever reason, whether religious our otherwise. The problem comes when people try to force their views on others by preventing them to choose. There are certainly valid reasons regarding individual rights to limit abortions. This is why the viability test makes sense, at which point the mother's life must be in danger to allow an abortion. Prior to that, it makes sense to leave it to the woman. Extreme laws prohibiting abortion are having a terrible effect in some states where mothers are being charged with murder if they happen to have drugs in their system after a miscarriage. There is more on this here:

The end result is that extreme laws criminalize pregnancy and can lead women to avoid care at a time when they need it most. The other reality here is that some women will still seek to have an abortion, just underground (for poor women) or in another state or country for the wealthy. So these laws are also just another way to discriminate against and criminalize the poor.

As a scientist I also think it important to avoid using religious arguments to create laws. Not everyone has the same religion and a growing number, like me, have no religion at all. Given that there is evidence for any specific religion, religion is an appropriate reason for personal decisions, but not laws that apply to all. For that we must look to the constitution and science. I also find it amusing that the so-called pro-life people in the US don't really care about the mother or about babies after they are born. If they did, they would support a stronger social safety net, universal healthcare, and so on.

There are always exceptions Sir. rape cases where the abused falls pregnant or where the pregnancy endangers the life of a mother are cases in point.

Let me say this, religion is poison since it ended up in the hands of man.

But I have issues with abortion on demand. A woman sleeps around, falls pregnant and aborts, a wife finds out she is pregnant by a lover and aborts, a man falls in love with a pregnant woman and forces her to abort. A father has big dreams for his unmarried daughter and forces her to abort.

I am in total agreement that the governments lack seriously when it comes to safety networks and the support of poor young mothers.
60% of children over here have no fathers.
I myself grew up with no father and my mother is my hero as she raised her 3 children alone with no help from government.

Would I wish it upon another child? Definitely not. That's why we work with orphans.

The care of women should be a priority for any government, but sadly very few have a serious concern for the welfare of their people. Especially for the poor.

There will always be exceptions but life is a gift that should be cherished.
