Pro-life or pro-choice ?

This poll has probably been done many times on this website but since I can't seem to find one I thought I would do a new one. This is not meant as a provocation in any way, I'm just curious to know what the proportions are.
(I'm sorry if this has been done 100 times already)
I love you.

    No contraceptive is 100% effective, and no-one should be forced into having a child if they don't want one. Especially for a young person who is just getting a start in independent adult life and might already be struggling to balance work and education as it is, becoming a parent could be an awful thing to happen to them.

    The system for adoption is flawed and overburdened. Criminalising abortion risks lives when desperate people seek unsafe backstreet abortions. Criminalising abortions doesn't reduce abortion rates significantly anyway, studies have shown the abortion rate (abortions per 1000 people per year) is 37 is countries where it is legal and 34 in countries where it is illegal.

    I am personally grateful they are there for me it makes me feel much more secure.

    I always do the best I can when it comes to contraceptives but there is still a risk as it's not 100%. I could not imagine bringing a child into the world that I can't care for, it would be a huge financial hit I would have to go on benefits and I would struggle to work especially the first few years. Then that struggle would be put upon my partner who would be working more hours than me.

    I could not bring myself to put the child up for adoption. I never want kids but I don't want them put into care it breaks my heart.

    Due to my condition I'm more unlikely to mother a child as I get older and older. I'm at increased risk for miscarriages and complications. 

    I think abortions are great options we should just continue to make sure they are the last resort as in after contraceptive failure. 
    Something that would greatly help is sterilisation. It's hard to get and you often have to be 40 or have one or two kids to get it. If it was more available for those who never wanted kids that would certainly help more. I have the chance to get it younger for my health but most will have to wait till they've had kids and that's not great for people who don't want them lol x


    I think this discussion is great it doesn't get brought up much :)

    I’m definitely of the opinion that women should be able to do whatever we like with our bodies...and no one has a right to dictate what we do.

    Like others I am reassured by the fact that it is an option, as for me as a 17 year old who is still at college and doesn’t have a job, I would worry that I wouldn’t be able to give a child the amazing life it should have. I’m also careful with contraception as I’m paranoid this happens to me.
