Contraception fails. Period.
You could say everybody knows there always is the risk that contraception fails and you get pregnant, so it is obvious. Contraception(-fail) is also taught at schools here more than once, usually. But even if it wasn't, I think it's your responsibility to be fully informed about what you are doing. I still think it is my very fault when there's a fetus sticking around somewhere after something I did voluntarily, knowing the (low) risk. So I can't push away the moral problem from me. Sure it's also the guy's fault, but he's obviously just lucky as heck not to carry the fetus.
I think it's similar to asking if one Siamese twin is morally allowed to commit suicide when it also kills the other twin. On the other hand, I think he's even more allowed to do so since he didn't cause that problem of sticking together with someone else. (And it doesn't suddenly become a woman's rights issue just because the twins are women.) Well. Probably off topic.
Is it a cultural thing when people would go for unprofessional or self-made abortions once the laws restricted them? Those seem to be rare here, but I can't find statistics right now. (I was like "what the hell? xD" when I read of that coathanger...concept, or self-induced abortion being seen as an almost normal issue, and I really wasn't oblivious about the whole abortion topic. Which is also discussed at schools. And forums. And everywhere. Since you've got to be quick and it's a bit confusing how to get an abortion, here.)
It's weird how here, the huge majority would never question that a fetus is a human after a certain (pretty early) point of development (though many people aren't sure when -exactly- that would be. As said, our laws decided "around 3 months" since the brain starts to develop pretty well after that and the fetus seems to become aware of it's surroundings, and many people stick with that opinion), while other countries don't see anything life-worthy even a few days before birth.
There also are no real popular "pro-life" or "pro-choice" associations/interests here.
So actually, here it is "more of a "when is the fetus a baby" issue".
Another popular concept of "when is something
a human" seems to be "at a point when it can survive on it's own outside of the uterus". But I'm not sure if C1-quadriplegic people would be amused.
and pays her an appropriate wage to bear and raise the child.
About 220 dollar/month here. Probably not appropriate, dunno. But one shouldn't assume that people keep the child if they didn't want it in first place.
And figure out how to deal with the woman whose partner refuses to use contraception, or their priest bullies them out of it, or the pharmacy won't sell them Plan B.
Pretty much unthinkable here. Maybe in some very rare and very weird cases. Church doesn't have to tell people anything here, pharmacies are bound by laws to give those meds out. I do, though, give you that some women might stick with such mentioned assholes and rather abort fetuses instead of leaving. But I'd consider that their own responsibility, too. Maybe that's also a cultural thing, people who don't use/demand condoms are generally considered idiots here.
I do gud englisch. Also, yes, I'm a girl. Sorry.
