|Abortion (we'll say up to 18 weeks)|
|Induction for nonmedical reasons (say 38 weeks +)|
|They are both selfish|
|Neither are selfish|
Quoting ~Ice Princess~:" What would be a motivator in a non-medical induction other than not wanting to be pregnant anymore or things like that?"
Quoting Back to Noob Status:" Husband/father is in the military and wants to see his baby born before he is shipped off to duty. "
Quoting Emmiboo:" For me there is 100% no acceptable reason to be induced if there is no medical need for it. I get what ... [snip!] ... having an abortion. Both are a choice available to some or all and I believe the choice should stay, whether I agree or not."
Quoting Yurvette [♥]:" Induction all the way. Abortion is not selfish. That is sometimes giving the baby a better chance. "
Quoting TheNuge:" i dont think my OB would have done an induction for non-medical reasons. MAYBE for some exceptions. ... [snip!] ... exceptions. It's not commonly done here. I just want to make sure you understand that aspect. It's not like elective circs."
Quoting Jude the Super Kinkster:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Back to Noob Status:</b>" Husband/father is in the military ... [snip!] ... is shipped off to duty. "</blockquote> I have seen multiple instances on here of women being called selfish for that."I'd be more apt to not be like "wtf" instead of the one that wanted to do it for tax money.
Quoting PANDORAX1:" abortion, maybe im biased because i was induced.... but honestly, what if mary was all like,"smurf , ... [snip!] ... disclaimer: jesus is my homeboy, i love that dude also , i hae no idea why i used that as an example but, wth... why not ...."
Quoting PANDORAX1:" ABORTION IS ONE WHERE I FEEL THAT IT IS ALMOST always SELFISH.... for one, if the baby is not wanted.. ... [snip!] ... not a very sensitive person but i will always think of abortion as taking a life... induction to me , can someimes be excused"
Quoting Jude the Super Kinkster:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Back to Noob Status:</b>" Husband/father is in the military ... [snip!] ... is shipped off to duty. "</blockquote> I have seen multiple instances on here of women being called selfish for that."
Quoting ~Ice Princess~:" Still a selfish reason....but I don't think that selfish is wrong or bad."
Quoting Back to Noob Status:" Why selfish? If it is no harm to the baby, and father wants to be able to see his child before going for a one-year tour, then how is selfish?"
Quoting ~Ice Princess~:" Because it's done for reasons that are for you...to make you happy. It isn't done because it needs to ... [snip!] ... her really at 35 weeks and could have put her at risk. But like I said, I don't think that being selfish is always wrong. "
Quoting Layla-and-Faith:" this is EXACTLY what abortion is though.. A woman is having one because she WANTS to and 99 percent ... [snip!] ... that baby 2 weeks early? it's better than 28 weeks early. Just for the record I am against inducing if not medically needed."
