You seem to think the only right that matters to a child is the right to be born. What about the right to be wanted and loved, to know its biological background and to know that it was not brought into existence because of a mistake that its parent(s) wished they could erase but the legislators wouldn't let them.
I had a termination when I was younger and I can tell you 100% that the world and the potential child in question are much better off.

Until we live in a world where rape and DV don't exist, single mums arent among the world's poorest, women aren't disadvantaged career-wise for taking time off to raise children, contraception is free of charge and free of side effects I just think your ideals would be a nightmare. Sounds romantic in theory, but in reality it would have disasterous and deadly consequences.

Vicpark you seem to think that mothers deciding to terminate do it because it is what is best for them (the mother) and do not consider the child. I can tell you from experience that it is often just as much a decision about what they think is best for the child. Some decisions to terminate are entirely selfless.
