Abortion is wrong because the fetus has no say. That violates their human rights.

a fetus is incapable of consent b/c it is not a sentient being in which rights adhere. but if u insist on playing that game, the fetus also cannot consent to being forced into a life in which they are guaranteed to suffer. which means ur inflicting all the harms of existence onto them with their consent. which makes procreation wrong, not abortion.

Side: No

While a fetus may not be a sentient being, it is still a living human being. And as such, it should be given the same rights and protections as any other human being. To abort a fetus is to take away its right to life, and that is wrong. Not all aborted babies are guaranteed to suffer, as you say. And even if they were, that is not a reason to kill them.

Side: Yes

I agree.

Fetuses should have a say whether or not they should be aborted and flushed down the toilet.

Fetuses should also have voting rights and a say in what their host should, or should not eat and drink.

I often hear the voices of unborn fetuses shouting down the canyon;-'' hey ma, give us a break and stop stuffing your stinking guts with those phaal curries and drinking that Irish Poteen.

Abortion is wrong

Hello:

Yes, abortion is WRONG. But, it's LESS wrong than forcing a woman to bear a child she does not want.

So if a mother kills her 7 year old, is it okay as long as she doesn't want the child?

Side: No

Yeah, that's absolutely fine. What's the alternative?

Abortion is wrong because abortion=death of fetus. Death of fetus=murder. Therefore abortion=murder.

Being pro abortion is the same as seeing a child drowning and not helping them because you think their mother and father do not love them. Let the kid drown. His parents aren't interested, so why should I be?

Side: Yes

I agree, you should save the child, take it home, feed it, pay for its education, meet all food and clothing costs, and of course medical expenses.

Or, did you have something else in mind?

Side: Yes

Abortion is also RACIST. Four black women get an abortion for every 1 woman. Abortion statistically wipes out future black generations. And who are the biggest fighters for abortions?!? It's white liberal Democrat women.

fetuses cannot consent, but they do not need to. They are not conscious people, and as another user said, no one asked them if they wanted to be concieved either. The needs of the mother are what matter, especially considering the serious damage, both physically and emotionally, that can be done to women through a unwanted child.

Side: No

The fact that fetuses cannot consent does not mean that they are not human beings. They are human beings who have not yet developed the ability to consent. Just because they cannot consent does not mean that they can be killed. Unwanted children can be placed for adoption, which is a much better solution than abortion.

WTF! How crazy are y'all?

What will you do when the woman who unwillingly birthed the child, can't take care of it. Get mad at her for getting it in the first place...

Theres lots of causes for abortion. What if the mother can't go through because of a sickness, will you just let both the mother and the child die?

It makes no sense to me... good thing i don't live in America, y'all are fked

It's pretty simple, really. Abortion is murder. It's taking the life of an innocent human being who has done nothing wrong.

What about the woman's choice? Well, she made the choice to have sex, didn't she? And now she has to live with the consequences of that choice. She can't just kill her baby because she doesn't want it. And don't get me started on rape. There are way too few examples to even factor into the equation here.

And what about all the adoption options out there? There are plenty of couples who would love to adopt a child, and there are plenty of children who need homes. So why not give them a chance at life instead of taking it away?

Side: Yes

A woman shouldn't be forced to have a child. People say that if a woman chose to have unprotected sex, she should have been ready to take responsibility for the consequences. But what if a woman is raped? What if contraception fails? Contraception doesn't always work. I've heard people say that if there's some underlying issue, such as financial problems, it should be fixed. But what if it can't be fixed? Often, it could be far worse for a child to live in awful conditions, or even just with an unloving parent. Yes, a foetus can't consent to an abortion, but nor can it consent to a life.

Side: No

Galya, you make some valid points. However, I believe that the life of a foetus is more important than the life of the mother. A fetus cannot choose to be aborted, but a mother can choose not to have sex. If a woman does not want to get pregnant, she should be more careful. I know that contraception doesn't always work, but it is the responsibility of the woman to make sure that she is using it correctly. I believe that abortion is wrong because it goes against the sanctity of human life.

Man, I hate the defense "the mother could have chosen not to have sex." Why not argue even further? The mother could have chosen not to have any physical contact. The mother could have chosen to not go on dates. Be single for life! That way abortions can never happen!

no, but procreation certainly is.

Procreation is a natural process that has existed since the beginning of time. Abortion is the ending of a human life, and is therefore wrong.

Side: Yes

well, naturalism fallacy for a start. besides which, appealing to nature doesn't get you anywhere. humans are a part of nature. everything any human does is therefore natural and by your reasoning right. so both procreation and abortion are natural and therefore right. great contradiction you've worked yourself into.

Side: No

I think it is the lesser evil to have the right to have an abortion. Abortions definitely prevent life, but should be far from the label of murder. I do think that there should be some process to approve the abortion, but ultimately still give the right to the mother in the end.

Side: No

no because i agree that its a human but its not a living breathing person, it cant live on its own, it cant survive at that stage. until its out of the womb and not apart of the person carrying it, then the person carrying can choose what they would like to do with it even if its to abort it.

Side: No
