Abortion is a medical procedure resulting in the termination of a human pregnancy and death of a fetus. In the UK abortion is legal in the first 6 months of pregnancy as long as the procedure is carried out in a hospital and women have the approval of two doctors. Abortion is currently illegal in Northern Ireland.
I believe that all measures should be taken to avoid pregnancy in the first place however if abortion is allowed then I believe that both parents should have the same rights of abandonment. In situations where the mother wants to abandon but the father does not then a surrogacy deal should be made.
Mostly pro-choice. If someone is in an extreme position, like they have been raped or they might have some health risks if they give birth, then they should be able to get an abortion. However, it should not be right for someone to have an abortion if they just can't be bother to look after the baby.
Pro-life, but I do not favor extremism on either side of the issue. Abortion is a healthcare decision between a woman and her doctor, and it needs to stay that way.
