    Another contentious subject at the moment is the US Supreme Court's decision to end the constitutional right to abortion

    Should women always have the right to choose?
    Should it only be allowed in certain circumstances (eg rape, threat to mother's health etc)
    Will this lead to the increase in back-street abortions?
    Do you think other countries will follow the US?
    • Yes, women should have the right to choose - and I agree it will lead to back street abortions and all the risks attached to those.

    • This one is a very gray area with nowhere to place a line to make it black and white.

      I'm not so sure other countries will follow suit as it isThis one is a very gray area with nowhere to place a line to make it black and white.

      I'm not so sure other countries will follow suit as it is ruling guided very much by religious beliefs in America. Once God gives life, it cannot be taken away logic.

      When religion is removed from the picture it still becomes impossible to define the beginning of a life. You could argue that prior to about 23 weeks a foetus cannot survive and therefore up to that point it is the mothers choice, but then medical science is likely to reduce that time over the years. The point of Birth? Again is there really much difference between 38 weeks and 40 weeks. The child will have no memory of it's birth. The point of consciousness becomes unthinkable, as that takes child to three years old. There is simply no point to place the line.

      I think religious beliefs will always dictate this one and the world is a very long way from agreeing on that subject. While religion will dictate the laws of each country, even in an atheist world, there will still the problem of where is the line and at what point does the health and welfare of the Mother cease to take priority over the life of the child. I agree with Tracy as well that the Father should also be considered, provided of course the child is not a result of a sexual attack. That adds more problems to an already very complex problem.

Each case needs considering carefully depending on the circumstances.
      I also agree that, if the couple are in a relationship, the father should be consulted. The mother carries the baby but it is still his child.
      Banning it completely is not the answer

There should always be a choice but a carefully thought out one, every women's circumstances are different. This just seems to be putting us back in the dark ages, where women have no rights or say in matters of their own health, next they will be bringing back burning witches at the stake.  More ...
