To quote one daring YouTube comment I remember reading not long ago: "Refusing a woman the right to rid her body of an unwanted parasite is giving her fewer rights than a corpse. If you are anti-abortion, you are anti-woman."
I have to say I do agree with the statement above. On top of that, the "pro-life" stance doesn't seem to have any logical argument.
If you are pro-life, why is the birth of the baby the only thing you supposedly care about?
If you are pro-life, why doesn't the life of the woman who is forced to carry, give birth to and care for the unwanted child ever come up in your debates?
If you are pro-life, why is your immediate reaction to a young woman seeking an abortion to shame and blame her for "doing it if she didn't want a child"?
If you are pro-life, why do you relentlessly argue against and shame women who want abortions, and then suddenly lose interest when the child is born into an unhappy life with a parent/parents who didn't want it in the first place?
I believe abortion should be legal in any and all cases regardless of how far along the pregnancy may be. Every American citizen has a right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. A person becomes a citizen by either being born in the country or going through the proper immigration channels. Seeing as the unborn has done neither of these the fetus is not a citizen. For this reason the mother must take priority and given the choice if they want to have the child or not. Now on a side note I do believe before the abortion takes place I feel it should be required that there be a meeting between both the mother, the doctor and the father if he is available.
What if the mother was raped, what if the mother has medical problems, or the fetus, what if the father of the fetus is an abusive controlling man, what if the mother would be the victim of an honor crime, what if the contraception failed, what if she doesn't want to be a mother? Forced birth is violence against women.
Typical pro-choice views, focusing on the 1% of abortion cases.
What if the mother was raped
go to your doctor and prevent the pregnancy
what if the mother has medical problems
What kind of selfish person puts their own life before their child's?
or the fetus
though parents do have legal authority to make decisions for their children, taking their life shouldn't be one of them
what if the father of the fetus is an abusive controlling man
Take the necessary measures to get away from this person. Murder isn't the solution to an abusive or controlling man
what if the mother would be the victim of an honor crime
I've never seen honor crime as a reason, and I'm curious how many actually take place in this country regardless of it being due to pregnancy.
what if the contraception failed, what if she doesn't want to be a mother?
If the woman uses birth control, the man uses a condom and pulls out, the chances of pregnancy are slim to none. Typically if this does occur it's because some type of precaution wasn't exercised.
Forced birth is violence against women.
Don't want to give birth? Don't get pregnant.
Yes, I think abortion should be legal because really, sometimes people might be drunk and have a one-night stand and become pregnant by mistake. They might not want to have a child yet and it is unfair really. Also, birth control might not always work and they don't actually want a child so I think abortion should be legal. Though you have to give up life, which is sad because the baby will never be like us. I think I will go for Abortion should be legal though.
I do not believe that abortion should be legal for any reason. My stance on Abortion is that it should not be done unless there is a serious risk to the mothers health. Also, if both the mother and the baby are at serious risk of dying and you had to choose one you would save the mother. Saying abortion should be legal for any reason is the same as saying for any inconvenience the mother can kill her baby. As for the rape argument, I understand where you are coming from with this but why is it we let rapist live and we have to kill the baby? The Regressive left wants rapist to suffer in jail for ten years and be set free to rape more women afterwards and at the same time murder the baby for the fault of the rapist father. My solution, though it is not implemented today, would be castration of the rapist or allow rape to be subjected to capital punishment.
Is it really a question if you should murder your helpless baby!? You say that women should be given a choice. What about the future women growing inside. It does not mater how early you are into the pregnancy, that little thing inside of you is a human. And it is alive.
