There's just something about killing a cell that doesn't bother me. It's hard to explain, but aborting a two week old fetus which has barely developed at all isn't the same as killing a newborn child.
It's not always a selfish decision. If a child is going to be born into a low income family living in a rough neighborhood filled with gang violence and things of that sort than abortion should be an option. Adoption isn't always a great way to raise a kid. Kids get shuffled through households all the time. It isn't fair to the child.
There should always be a choice. No matter what the subject, there should be options. That's all.
