VS.

No way

I'm pro-choice but I am also for taking responsibility for your choices and accepting the consequences. And above all, don't whine about the poor choices you've made. I don't want to hear it. Suck it up!

Side: Yes of course

Hell yeah!!!

Yes, I am not a woman therefore I do not have the rite to tell a woman that she cannot have an abortion after she has been raped. Who are men to decide what a woman must do? What would you guys do if the gov told you to stop killing potential life via beating off? It would seem ludicrous

Side: Yes of course

Of course, it's not my place to decide someone's life besides my own.

It's not right for me to make the choices or to allow the government to make the choices in someone else's life. It's not just because of some high morality or anything, but I can't support ideas like that simply because I would not want anyone doing that to me. Without life's simple choices, there is no true freedom.

I am pro choice because 1: Whether or not to have an abortion is a personal medical decision by the woman carrying the baby about what to do with her own body. The fate of her fetus is not the business of anyone except her and her doctor.

2: A fetus is not a human being, meaning terminating a pregnancy is not murder. For evidence of this consider whether a first or second trimester fetus could live on its own, without the asistance of the mother or medical technology. Also consider that the bible does not consider fetuses legal human beings (Exodus 21:22-25), so there is no religious argument supporting the pro life position.

3: People should not be punished for birth control failing, for being uninformed about how babies are made or for general immaturity. A baby is an extremely expensive thing, if two parents were unprepared financially or lack the maturity necessary to raise a child in modern times then a pregnancy could ruin the lives of not only the parents but of the child as well.

4: An unplanned pregnancy can have negative consequences not only for the mother, father and child, but also for the society they are a part of. If this family was not financially able to raise a child, the public ends up paying for them through welfare programs, etc... I would rather see my tax dollars go to more productive causes.

5: If abortion were illegal and considered murder then the mother who had the abortion would have to be prosecuted for first degree murder. I find that morally wrong but I also find it economically wrong as it will increase the prison population and once again redirect my tax dollars from causes I'd rather see them go to.

I also come to believe that every one of us has the right to do what we think is right. Gays wants to get married, well that's their choice and I think we should respect that. But I am never pro of abortion this is way too sensitive. I think we should treat life more sacredly. It is morally wrong as we all know. It was killing another human life no matter what we push that fetuses are not babies.

Side: Yes of course

it is someones choice on how they live their life and we should not be the ones to determine on how they should live it. If someone wants to do something that would be disapproved by many, well thats their decision.

The Bible is the only book to have thousands of it's prophecies and none have been close to what it says but 100% right. It tells of the earth being round, the atom,the auto, the radio, TV, wars of the past, and at what point life starts. Anyone saying they don't believe in God has never read it. I would rather be pro life than pro choice.

The Bible is clear in at what point life begins and is not above it's pay grade.

Are you serious? It's amazing how people only discover these amazing predictions only after science discovers them. News flash, the Bible doesn't predict anything. You're just seeing want you want to see.

I consider abortion murder... I don't condone murder except in war, very rare cases of abortion, and some cases of euthanasia, especially indirect euthanasia, when the patient is not given resuscitation or any machines for life support, thus allowing him or her to die on his or her own.

There are many arguments to both sides of this issue, but I think the arguments for being pro-life are way better than the one's for being pro-choice. First of all, no matter how much you deny it, cover it up, or lie about it, abortion is killing someone. You can keep telling yourself that it isn't, but it is. That's against the law just to let you know. It is against my religion and that is one of the reasons why I think it is wrong, but I can argue from a secular point of view also. The Declaration of Independence lists three inalienable rights: LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Isn't killing an innocent baby taking all three of these rights away from it? Also, one argument for being pro-choice is that restrictions on abortion are a violation to rights of privacy, but privacy is not mentioned once in the constitution. Besides, isn't the right to life a little more important the right to privacy? If the baby itself is not causing any real danger to the mother, then she does not have the right to takes its life a way.

Side: NO WAY

First of all, no one's saying abortion isn't killing someone, so please stop that scarecrow argument.

The pro-choice argument is that aborting a fetus is justified in certain circumstances (health risks, rape, incest). Even in cases where the mother is simply unprepared to raise a child, I'd still argue abortion should be an option, since not all unwanted babies are adopted, and end up getting screwed up in the foster system.

Ultimately, the pregnacy effects the pregnant woman infinitely more than it effects you or me, so it's logical that the woman is in the best position to make the choice about what she wants to do. I personally hope it isn't abortion, but it's not our call.

You just agreed with me that abortion is killing someone and not something. Isn't it against the law to kill an innocent person? I know that a lot of times it is extremely difficult to for a woman to cope with an unplanned pregnancy, but i think that ultimately, the government should make abortion illegal, but in turn provide programs to help the woman through this hard time and make the right choice in what to do with the child after birth, whether it would be adoption, or keeping the baby, in order to preserve life. I also think that the government should provide more funding for to take care of the children in the foster care system. It may be true that we shouldn't tell other people how to live their lives or what they can and can't do, but isn't that what we attempt to do whenever we vote?

Side: NO WAY
