We need better education among everyone to better understand contraceptives and abstinence,
I'm religious, but my beliefs may not be your beliefs nor should I force them on you either.
The religion part of it comes into some people believeing that a fertilized egg is a fullfledged human being and those who believe that it is just a bunch of cells.
It's just the fact that killing is a religious issue in some religions (10 commandments- Thou shalt not kill, etc...) Some people see it as killing a person when others see it as killing some cells.
(I hate to use the term "some people," but I think I answered your question, palerider.)
Ending an innocent human being life simply because of personal hardships is wrong. A parent killing their own children is wrong. It is barbaric.
What exactly does religion have to do with this issue? Whether or not it should be legal to kill a human being for no better reason than convenience doesn't strike me as a religious issue. Do you see other laws with regard to killing - murder, manslaugter, etc as religious issues as well?
