Option 2, though I support option 1 for people who are already receiving federal health care (people on Medicaid).

Abortion should not be legal, but should be federally funded.

Lean option 2.

Abortion should certainly be legal. As to federal funding, if a universal healthcare system exists, then it's only fair to include abortion, but it would be best if such a system didn't exist.

Abortions are medical procedures that are, at times medically recommended and potentially life saving for the mother. There is no rationale I can agree with that makes abortion legal, but also not federally supported.

Option one, but I could support option two if necessary.

I guess the rationale is having to navigate a political system filled with fundies, moderate heroes and corporate cronies.

Option 1.  The first two are free, the third one you pay for with your ovaries.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

Because overall, making abortions available to all regardless of their socioeconomic status would be beneficial.

Though of course, I don't support the federal government at all.  But as long as we're going to have this bourgeois society, we might as well fund stuff like that.

Flush 'em. And encourage dumb young women to do so. But that'll never happen because the government can't make more money for its members without population growth, so babies will continue to be softly encouraged.

Ban it.

I must admit that the number of people supporting option 1 is disturbing. I have accepted that most people here favor the 'right' to abort, but state funding is another story.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

Option 1 and 1/2th.

Abortions should be legal but only have federal funding for extenuating circumstances.  Kind of like unemployment comp or something like that.

I'm not sure I would be in favor of MORE abortions, but I can say that having a state ban on abortions sets a pretty dangerous precedent.  Primarily, I'm concerned that such bans could have ramifications that give the state a blank check to control a person's body.

closer to 3 but obviously simply banning abortion won't necessarily stop it, having access to forms of birth control and certain social services would help reduce the rate more regardless of legality (sane).

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

Who decides which young women are dumb?  Or are you assuming that about all of them?

...perhaps if a state can mandate a person keeping a fetus to term, it can mandate abortion as well.

Yes, very much so.

The state could get a blank check to regulate the population of certain groups if given such power.

Perhaps population control conspiracies aren't as far from the truth as they might seem and perhaps are propagated by those who are likely allied with the conspirators themselves.

Abortion should be legal except for in the third trimester unless the mother's health is in serious jeopardy. My attitude on federal funding would vary based on the type of health care system in place, but in principle I am not at all opposed to option one in this poll.
