I think abortion is killing. Every person has a right for life. Why do many women do abortion ? I cant understand them. Before you got pregnant , you should think by your head hundreed times. Whether you want this child or not. If you dont, then you should just drink the pills and your problem will be solved.

Side: Abortion is wrong

I am pro life not for religious reasons but for moral reasons. I think that it is murder and if you get pregnant and don't want the baby then it is your fault for having sex.

What about rape victims?

Even then it is not the unborn child's fault its Mother got raped so it should not get killed because of it.

And plus I am pretty sure that most pregnancies that end in abortion are the product of promiscuous behaviour.

Abortion is murder, there is no question about it. So do I oppose cold blooded murder that is done in the name of convenience? YES!

It is actually.

All doctors and scientists agree that a fetus is a human and abortion is a murder. And according to psychologist, people tend to dehumanize a fetus as a defense mechanism to avoid the guilt of their actions.

It is a well masked genocide done by the mother to her own child. But I can see the need for it

In the same sense that there might be a question of "do you oppose rape?" This shouldn't even be a controversy since there is nothing controversial about killing your children.

Abortion is NOT murder! Do you have any evidence that abortion is indeed murder? Do you hear these arguments go to trial?

Abortion is simply a right for ALL women under ANY circumstances. A child that is haven't born yet does not have the full features of a person and it does not have consciousness. Therefore abortion should NOT be considered murder under all conditions.

Under the circumstances when the mother truly wants an abortion due to issues such as the irresponsibility of the father, if the child is born, it will be a burden for both the single mother and the child when he/she grows up! If that is the case, it would be better if that child was never born.

Abortion is not a responsibility but a right for all women when she feels the burden and hesitation. You would not want two lives to be lived under a shadow based on one decision.

After three months, abortion would be killing a life. Before three months however, abortion isn't killing a life.

Yepp. Killing something that isn't living is murder. Like shooting a dead body, that's murder. Fellatio is also murder, and cannibalism. Y'all do fellatio and you're worse than Hitler. Mmkay?

And if this doesn't make sense, then fuck you. Because obviously I support life my supporting something that isn't living, and if you're someone that supports abortion, then you're not pro-life, meaning you want everyone to die, obviously.

By which time I hope you realise I am being sarcastic, and poorly mocking the pro-life-parade.

It's illogical to let a woman die in the hope of saving a child, which would die in birth anyway. And yet people still say " nature should run it's course, let her die."

That, my friend, is illogical, if you wish to live in a functioning technologically advanced ( and advancing) society.

Side: Abortion is ok

I have to vote on the side of 'Abortion is wrong.'

I, however, am pro-choice. Firstly, because of circumstances where the mother would be at significant risk carrying the child to term. Secondly, because victims of rape have enough to go through, they should have the option to terminate the resultant pregnancy rather than carry it to term alongside all of the emotional trauma. Thirdly, because adoption is not a viable alternative to abortion for reasons I've detailed elsewhere. I could not countenance a ban on abortion without first doing a major overhaul of the adoption and foster care system; otherwise, we're just throwing even more kids into an already overloaded and poorly handled system- packed with all forms of abuse.

I believe that abortion is wrong for two different reasons. First of all, abortion removes responsibility. Much of the problem that we have with society today is that we are teaching children that everything is fixable. They are living with the idea that nothing they do is permanent. Somebody can cover their mistake no matter how bad. This means that all they have to do is deal with the bad feeling. This is destructive. Imagine if every girl on the planet was told by everybody that abortion is okay. If they don't feel like having a baby they can just get rid of it. We know that there are negative effects(especially to the body of the woman). It wouldn't be logical to tell the young women growing up that this is okay. Secondly, the idea that the fetus IS going to be a child. The argument that I hear most often is that the woman has the choice in what she wants to do with her body. But here's the thing, it's not just her body now. It's her body AND the body of the child. In addition, that argument doesn't hold true with why we set a limit on how long you can wait to do it. If that is the logic, then you should be able to have an abortion at 8 months. It's still the woman's body. Therefore, aside from arguing that it just isn't "right" it also isn't very logical at all.

Side: Abortion is wrong

Hopefully they will invent a time machine soon. Then I can go back in time and show your mom what an obnoxious prick you turned out to be so she will abort you :p

It wasn't a joke. The guy is a troll. He's the one that's been creating all those fundie puppet accounts over the past few weeks. I don't even think the guy is a christian. Notice how in all of the videos he posts he picks the stupidest creationist arguments instead of picking ones that at least make a little bit of sense. I'm pretty sure he's just a poe making fun of the Christians on CD. I wouldn't be surprised if he was you since I haven't seen you trolling lately. Have you actually changed your ways or did you just get tired of getting banned over and over?

Here's a question: What if someone couldn't take care of a baby? And don't say adoption. The only other option would be Abortion. And Abortion keeps our population lower and decreases the chance of poverty.

The whole issue at stake is whether or not one has a right at that point, or if they are a one at all.

Without addressing that, there's no point discussing abortion. It's not that people who believe abortion should be legal think that a fetus is a life but it's simply okay to kill it, it's that they don't think it's a life in the first place.

Side: Abortion is wrong

Abortion is just history repeating itself where people invent lies to dehumanize their own brother and avoid the guilt of their actions. Once it was the blacks to the whites. Today is the mother to her child.

Only a fool will deny that a fetus is a human. However, disgusting as it may seem, I see it as a necessary evil

1. We are already overpopulated

2. You cant force someone to bear a child she does not want

3. It is better to kill the child than let it live in a world of rejection and abuse

4. If he grew up without love, he will grow as a criminal and further instill disorder in the society

This are the reasons that the government came up before they legalize abortion. And I agree

Side: Abortion is wrong

As long as the abortion takes place before the development of consciousness, I have no problem with it.

Every baby has the right to proper care and love; if this is not possible, abortion should be okay

Side: Abortion is ok

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.

It's a woman's right to decide what happens to her body, which includes having a baby. Therefore they can chose to not have a baby. Therefore abortion is fine.

Also, because there is not scientifically agreed upon age of development at which a foetus becomes a human, you can't say that abortion is murder because you can't prove that a feutus of any age is technically human.
