Sorry I had to start a new page, the other one wouldn't allow me to post my answer.
I have quite a bit to say on this topic. Before I start, I would like to say I am not a religious person, and none of my views come from a belief in "God," because I do not believe there is one. I do, however, believe abortion is wrong. As to your many arguments to the contrary, they are not well backed up. Shard is the only person on here who seems to have researched the topic at all, and her (his?) arguments are still flawed. Okay, so an embryo, or whatever you wish to cal it, doesn't have a fully formed, functioning brain or nervous system...so it's okay to kill it? Think about this...a mentally handicapped infant does not have a fully formed, functioning brain, and many people, such as quadriplegics, have nervous system problems...is it okay to kill them? As to a woman's right to choos, you are absolutely right. A woman has the right to do whatever she wants to her body. But it is not your body you plan to "flush down the loo," as Katie so elegantly put it. That body belongs to your unborn son or daughter. That means it is your child's choice what happens to their body, and since they can't tell you what they want, you'll just have to wait until they can;) And saying tht an earlier abortion is better than a late one, it's not. Sure, the procedure is different. It's not as gruesome, the fetus is smaller, and it's easier to rationalize to yourself...but that doesn't change the fact that your killing a baby. And don't say it's not a baby, it's just a fetus. That's like saying a two-year-old isn't a human, it's just a child. Consider this...a baby's heart starts beating just 18 days after conception. Most of us don't even realize we're pregnant by then!
I realize that keeping an unwanted child would be hard. My sister, at the age of 19, has two children, a four year old and a 7 month old. Neither was planned. She kept both of them, however, and is raising them. It made life harder, yes, but not as difficult as people would lead you to believe. Many people say that a woman will no longer be able to attend school, hang out with friends, date, or do any other "normal" activity after having a child. It's simply not true. You will have to plan things in advance so you can get a sitter, or take the baby with you, but you can still do the things you do now. And let's face it, the older you are when you have this unwanted child, the more capable you will be of taking care of it. At 24, you will have more money and resources than a 14 year old would.
I'm not going to say you're wrong for having an abortion, because I can understand why you would want one. However, it makes more sense to carry the baby to term. After looking at the life you created, if you still don't think you can raise it as your own, make an adoption plan. There are hundreds of loving couples out there ready and willing to have a baby, but unable to do so. YOU will get to pick the parents, YOU will get to decide how much contact you want to have with the child, and YOU will get to decide if the child will know about the adoption prior to their eighteenth birthday. There is a lot of stigma related to adoption, but it truly is a good choice.
