Abortion Should Be Legal
Debate Rounds (3)
"Life Liberty and property shall not be infringed without due process of law"- the 5th ammendment.
Last I checked an abortion clinic is not a court of law, the woman is not judge, jury,m and executioner, and "it's my body" isn't alegitimate cause for the deatyh penalty.
You aren't giving the fetus more rights, it and the mothher have equal rights, the issue is that the right to life is above all others, therefor the fetuss right to life is above whichever of these rights you consider constituties abortion (i.e. none of them).
The fetus's right to live is above the womans right over her body, the fetus isn't getting more rights! Certain rights are above others though, the womans right to live is exactly equal to the fetus's right to live, just as liberty, and property, but the right to life is above liberty, therefor the use of one right should not be allowed ifthe impications are the infringemenmt of someone elses. he fetus is not the womans body either, she can do whatever she wants with HER body, not whatever she wants with someone elses body.
