The moral justification of an abortion is dependent on the circumstances pertinent to making such a decision not least of which being whether or not the pregnant female wishes to use her body as an incubation chamber for a developing fetus which she may not want, nor be able to afford after birth.

Is abortion right or wrong?

Hello Lilly:

I dunno.. Is stepping on a bug right or wrong? I was married to a lady who wouldn't kill a fly.

So, the question isn't whether it's right or wrong.. It's, should we put an abortion cop into every bedroom, and every doctors office in this fine land of ours??

And, IF we did, who're we gonna put in jail? The woman, or the doctor? And, how long should they be in jail?

And she was married to a fake Jew. Isn't life strange?

Why do you think its right?? What is your basis for this being right?

Is abortion right or wrong?

It isn't either. The universe holds no objective moral framework and will wipe our entire species out tomorrow morning if it is so inclined. Abortion is either a convenience or a necessity, dependent on your views, but right and wrong are not factors which are involved.

Why do you use the term “baby”?

A fetus remains an unborn or unhatched offspring of a mammal

To use the term “baby” is an attempt to move the debate about abortion toward whether and when the fetus should be considered a “person” and that is not where the debate should be.

How do you know what most people think?

Why should a woman be forced to give birth to the unwanted?

This is what you’re suggesting forced birth right ?

If you believe that a woman is actually killing a baby if you are to be consistent with your position would you insist those who abort are jailed for life for the crime of infanticide ? If not why not ?

Why should a woman be forced to give birth to the unwanted?

Because she had multiple options on her table to not create a life.

Exceptions I accept are rape, the mother is 7, mother will die, etc. Other than extreme circumstances, use condoms, birth control, pull out, etc, or live with your choice.

So she cannot change her mind? You agree women should be forced to give birth against her will

Exceptions I accept are rape, the mother is 7, mother will die, etc. Other than extreme circumstances, use condoms, birth control, pull out, etc, or live with your choice.

Yes they are the exceptions you accept , you believe you have a right to force your moral beliefs on others - grounded in your own personal philosophy. I don’t make claims on the morality of abortion - I leave that as an individual choice for every woman faced with an unwanted pregnancy.

If the mother doesn’t want the baby it’s unwanted by her whether anyone else wants it is merely an attempt at deflection by you

Why have you no response to my questions ? Your debate topic would seem to indicate that you wished to expound on your position is this not the case ?
