For many this is a religious dilemma, and for some it is a moral issue. The two are not necessarily the same. I know many Christians, and there are many opinions amongst them concerning abortion. Christianity is not the only religion that deals with this very question. Many people are not religious, but they still have morals. This tells me morals come from within each of us. I was taught that no matter what others might say, that I should always hear what my Creator was telling me. That each of us can speak directly to The Creator within ourselves. As long as I listen to my Creator, I find whatever the issue is, there is always a clear answer. At the age of 13, 11 months after I was married, I was told by my doctor that I was pregnant, and that I should not have the child. He said my health was at risk, and he adviced that I abort the pregnancy as early as possible. My husband was all for that. He was in his mid 40's, and didn't want 'more' children. I was 13, and I didn't want a baby either. But the voice of my Creator said this was wrong. My first pregnancy was only 8 months, and at 15, the same thing happened, and that child was born after only 6&1/2 months. The doctors said I was lucky and should not have anymore children. I had no more children. So for me it was a moral issue. My Creator told me that no matter how much I didn't want to have children, it would be wrong to "kill" my children. So although both of my sons are gone now, they were my greatest treasures. Not all morals come from religion.
