I am prochoice. I support choice unless the baby has a 50% or more chance of survival.

So you don't believe a mother has a right to choose to abort unless the baby is at risk?

I support abortion if there is a risk of trauma to the mother and the baby has no chance of survival, or the baby will die anyway.

What about 49.9% chance of survival?

I'm pro-choice mainly because 68% of abortions occur within the first trimester before the fetus even has enough nerves to feel pain, also the funding of family planing centers are more effective in avoiding abortion than down right banning it!

So killing something is okay as long as they don't feel it? Interesting...

They are not even really a person at 6 fucking weeks! And if you really think that their ability to feel pain does not make a difference than you must think that masturbation is genocide.

Side: Pro-Choice

Babies don't need to be born.

Why the fuck should it matter if they are aborted or not?

They are taking away a life that hasn't really started yet.

No what ifs, ands or buts about it.

I see no harm done. Except done to the baby of course, but that is over pretty soon.

Side: Pro-Choice

If someone is a strict constructionist who interprets the Constitution word for word, the sanction for abortion is given under the Fourteenth Amendment.

The Fourteenth Amendment of our U.S. Constitution defines a citizen “a citizen” at birth. If a woman is carrying a fetus in the womb, the U.S. Constitution does not designate the fetus as “a citizen.” It would take an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to declare a fetus a citizen. You have to be born in order to be recognized as a citizen. Therefore, a woman does have the right to choose. A fetus inside the womb is not designated as a citizen according to the U.S. Constitution so by default is not entitled to life, liberty, or prosperity. You have to be born in order to be endowed with those privileges. To conclude, neither the Federal government nor any of the States can deny a woman the right to choose.

If abortion is murder, abortion would have been terminated years ago due to the cruel and unusual punishment clause under the Eighth Amendment. Again, proof that a fetus is not recognized as a citizen of the United States of America.

I am pro-life. I can be easily swayed though because both sides are compelling.

There's nothing compelling about the pro-choice side. Absolutely nothing.

New users, practice

Later Date, more info to debate about.

Basically as time goes in we may find new info or new logic that may change the way we view abortion.

Side: Pro-Life

Would you like to of been aborted? No. So why is it ok for others to be?

Side: Pro-Life

I always found that to be an exquisite argument for the pro-life side.

It would be more accurate to say I am anti-abortion. I do not see enough justification for it, especially with all the selfishness of the woman having the sole choice, despite only contributing half of its chromosomes. Oh, and being one-half of the decision to even have sex in the first place.
