The thread about the lady who is scared after a one night stand got me thinking. There are plenty of times when copulation occurs and an egg is fertilized by the male sperm, yet it is discharged naturally by the body. Is this considered abortion? If not, why are so many pro-life people getting upset when an abortion in the first 3 months of pregnancy? (before a fetus is developed) I have very strong feelings on the subject, and I am very strongly pro choice, but i'm just curious where the train of thought is on that?
Now i'm not out looking to make enemies, I respect your decision on pro-life, I try my best to understand your points of view, i just choose not to agree with them and it makes me curious.

...and TM, the key word in your post is "naturally"....I think sometimes fertilized eggs are discharged my the womans body for a variety of resons, as in they're defective, or not right in some other way....

For me, it is how Biggie said. Natural. If we don't 'mess' with it, it MIGHT make it to term (my sister even miscarried at 8 months).
I ALSO agree with Biggie to handle it beforehand. I do not want to find myself in the middle of an unwanted pregnancy and have to make ANY kind of decision one way or the other, so I take steps to avoid the issue.
IMO, it isn't the government's job to dictate this thing. So right now is how it aught to be: them letting us make our own decisions. Now, when it comes to underage pregnancies, each state has their own laws. Some I'd probably agree with, some I might not. And only because the 'mother' would be afraid to tell her parents (which I find very saddening but true).
Anyway, I know how I would choose for myself and how I will answer the question for my children, but I will not force my own potential decision on anyone because I cannot ever put myself in their position and pretend I'd make the 'right' choice.
