Smart Person: Abortion is murder, a depopulation program, and should be illegal and have the same penalties as murdering a child outside of the womb.
In most cases, an abortion is terminating an unwanted pregnancy. Not because the mother wnats to kill the baby, but because she is not ready for a child, doesn't want a child, or some other reason.
Too many abortions have been carried out in back-alley clinics with unsafe methods and ignorant providers. Women have gotten terribly sick and died because of botched abortions.
A fetus has only been in the world for a few months while the mother has been in the world for years. Both would be missed should one of them die, but the mother would be leaving so much should she be lost.
Abortions, contrary to those who oppose it, actually does help children; it reduces the number of abused/neglected children; if the parents didn't want the baby and end up having it, they (the parents) would become frustrated by the fact that they had a child that they didn't intend to have, leading to neglect and abuse of the child. With abortion, the child won't have to endure the abuse.
Too many "oops" babies have been born and life made hard for the child and the parents; it's the contraceptive, abortion, or adoption.
Abortion is allowed and always should be because
-People make mistakes
-The potential baby is unwanted
-Its usually teens aborting:
-teens don't always have the responsibility
-teens don't always have the money
-teens don't always have the time
-No Abortion would ruin the parent(s)'s life and the child's life
-The women could have been raped and cannot be forced into keeping the baby
-It is unfair to have some one who doesn't want the baby to raise the baby
-Some argue that this is murder, but it is not because the POTENTIAL BABY/HUMAN is not a real human when it is conceived, it does not have thoughts for feelings, its rather a little more than a cell.
Girl2: Why not put it up for adoption?
Many people like to paint abortion as evil and the eqivalent to murdering a fully-developed, conscious human being, which is a delusional argument.
People against abortion are usually religious conservatives that argue that life begins when sperm meets egg. They also argue that every life is predetermined by a higher power, which is a flawed argument because it's really easy to get somebody pregnant, and it was origanally made that way to insure the survival of a species. Once the baby is born, "pro-lifers" then don't care what happens to the child. Most "pro-lifers" don't adopt unwanted children or give money to orphanages. And ironically many "pro-lifers" support unnecessary war, the death penalty, hunting animals for fun and sport, and murdering people on religious grounds. Also a minority of "pro-lifers" take it to an extreme level and bomb abortion clinics and murder abortion clinic doctors and employees.
I'll always maintain the opinion that only the woman carrying the child should be able to choose if she wants to carry the baby to term or not, but I don't think abortion is as bad as everyone makes it out to be. With so many kids in orphanges and a world population of 6.5 billion, and millions of starving people, abortion helps control population, since some people are too stupid to not wear a condom.
One has to ask if people just suddenly stopped having abortions, what would happen to the extra 40 million babies that would be born worldwide each year? This is something "pro-lifers" don't think about.
