Abortion is Wrong!
Abortion is when a pregnant woman willingly terminates the pregnancy. This can happen all the way up to the ninth month. After the second trimester doctors do what is called a partial birth abortion. Many women now use abortions as a form of birth control. My feeling on the issue is if the girls cannot have safe sex, they should not be allowed to have abortions.
Partial birth abortions are when the doctor delivers the baby until the base of the skull (when the baby is delivered in breach position) or up until the navel when delivered normally.
