And to all the pro-lifers: abortion only stops a beating heart if you wait long enough for the heart to develop. No one is forcing the pro-lifers to get abortions, yet they wish to force everyone not to...
Keep pregnancy curable!
However, Freedom is two-way traffic. (That anyone can call themselves "Pro-Life" and support the US military action in Iraq is nonetheless mind-boggling.)
There is also some debate over who should have the right to decide to get an abortion. Ultimately, it should fall to the woman. It's her body. Still, it would be the decent thing to involve the father (provided he is not a rapist or perverted blood relative.)
Jane : Who can blame her? Why would she want to mother a baby she never asked for, forced onto her by some creep she doesn't even know by name? Wouldn't it be a terribly painful reminder of her being violated every time she looked at the child?
Anna: Yeah, I agree. Let's call her and tell her to make that appointment...
I also believe that since I am a man, it is not my place to tell women how to live their lives. Although I personally may think what they are doing is wrong, it is not my place to make a law banning this. And no, dont say "but its your responsibilty because its murder!" its not actually murder, more depriving someone of a future life. And think about it for two seconds: if you outlaw abortion, women will still get abortions. TRUST ME ON THIS. They will simply go to dangerous back alley abortion clinics.
The joining of a man's sperm with a woman's egg, a zygote is formed, thus, the very first stage of a human being's life. All information is present at this stage for the human person to grow into an embryo, fetus, infant, toddler, child, teenager, and adult. There are not separate distinctions of the human species during its first stages of growth.
