Should or should it not be?

In South Dakota, USA the governor recently signed into law that it's illegal to have an abortion unless the woman's life is in danger.

What about victims of rape???

I would almost say that abortion is mandatory in China... unless you wanna pay up three years of your income for that extra baby.

it is legal in China,but you are not allowed to do it just fotr the gender of the baby,althought still some people do it when they get know the gender of the baby by an illegal way,
in fact ,i don't know if it is right to do this,but we all know so many little middle school girls were ever pregnant ,what a phenomenon it is !!!!!!if the law passed in China,maybe the ratio would be decressed!!!
but for the victims of rape,the married woman who don't want the child for some reason.what should they do ?????

what should they do if they are raped???

well, the way i see it is that you either beleive it can be done for any reason, or no reason is good enough.  How can you say it is ok to kill a baby but only under certain situations (excluding death to mother)??  

so, like the hypocrite i am, i'd say it's immoral to kill babies, but a woman should have the right if they are raped.

it doesn't seem appropriate to kill babies for population control...  but, morals are subjective so whatevers.

It is pretty draconian, but what else are you going to do? After the population explosion during Mao's reign, pure propaganda wasn't good enough. I think they'd allow people to abort under any circumstances, but knowing the strong son preference, especially in the countryside, they don't want people aborting because they're going to have a daughter instead. If the woman is raped, I don't think that changes anything--you can still get an abortion.
