Erin, I respect your responsible inquiry into the morality of abortion, but I hope that a woman who is facing this decision is not terrorized by the idea of possible future spiritual regret. Like any decision in her life, it is possible that a woman may regret having had an abortion, and she should consider that long and hard, but having an abortion will not damn your soul.
In what I hope is our age of reason, we would be wise to make decisions about whether or not we're able and willing to bear and raise a child based on rational factors.
I am not in favor of abortions -- I am in favor of a woman's right to choose for herself, free of religious or spiritual bullying from others. A woman is able to realize for herself what the correct choice is.
