1. Abortions
Edithann ,   USA   (12.25.08)
This is a serious issue.. I'm sure there a lots of comments.. Why aren't any comments posted.. You know by managing the comments you are managing society..Is that the job of Ynetnews..or is your job to inform? TATA
2. These are legitimate reasons for an abortion
Chaya ,   Bat Yam   (12.25.08)
So, apparently, the situation is not as bad as it is in the U.S. where abortion has become a form of birth control.
3. There should be NO ABORTIONS
Shira ,   NY B"H YERUSHALAYIM   (12.25.08)
unless it causes harm to mother or medically necessary..... Just awful how many jewish Souls have been murdered in this way, for no reason but the Fact it was an inconvenience to the parents. Shame Shame.
4. Stop the incest and rape
Petra ,   usa   (12.26.08)
far less abortions then. Also, mothers and fathers can educate their male offspring to respect women, all women. Israel seems to me second to muslims in the way they treat their women. Saddens me greatly.
5. abortions
colin   (12.26.08)
Which judge has passed that sex is illegal??? The writer descibes a couple enjoying life naturally as illegal bence the main reason of abortion.Who decided that marraige allows people more rights??Before man invented marraige nature ruled. Laws by fools and judgement by idots that believe man amde laws are idiots.
6. Abortions
Ben ,   Monroe USA   (12.26.08)
Have seen a bumper sticker which reads as follows: If your are against abortion, don't have one.
7. Efrat organization can help women have the child
Judah ,   Golan Heights,ISRAEL   (12.26.08)
8. No. 6 Ben
NYC Girl   (12.27.08)
I also like the one that says, "If men could get pregnant...there'd be an abortion clinic on every corner."
9. Shouldn't group those categories together
Michael ,   Galut   (12.28.08)
"Data showed that 55% of abortions were a result of incest, illegal relations or out-of-wedlock conception." Incest and illegal relations (i.e. adultry) are a lot worse than out-of-wedlock conception. It would be great if more data could be provided in the future.
10. #8 NYC Girl lol Great!
petra ,   usa   (12.28.08)
my poor hubby can't take a cold, I know he couldn't 'take' pregnancy.
11. # 6 Ben and if you don't want child support payments
Petra ,   usa   (12.28.08)
don't screw around.
12. Nobody is "for" abortion
Dorothy Friend ,   Tel Aviv   (12.29.08)
Some of us just think that there are sad cases where this is justified and should be available.
