Soon as a baby has a heartbeat it is a living creature and doesn't deserve to be murdered just because it was conceived in a bad way. A woman has a right to her body and the baby may be a part of her but that childs life has begun and abortion is ending that babys life. That's murder. Yes, it's a terrible thing that a woman may have been abused and shouldn't have to suffer any more than she already has but is her 9 months more important than that babys whole life?
The female may not have chosen to be raped but the baby didn't choose to be conceived either. If abortion isn't legal than it's illegal for a reason and that reason shouldn't be exempt just because the baby was conceived in a not so great situation. Understanding not wanting to keep the baby, adoption is a perfect solution. Unfortunately being pregnant from rape or incest is terrible but you can still give that baby the greatest gift ever, which is life.

I think that it should be legal, because the female did not choose to be raped, so why should she have to keep a monsters baby?

The woman doesn't have to keep the baby, she can find a family to adopt the baby before it's even born or give it up after it's born. Also, the female didn't choose to be raped but the baby didn't choose to be conceived either. A woman getting pregnant in such a situation is a horrible thing but it's not the babys fault.

Why should the female have to waste nine months of her life growing a baby she doesn't want? Also, why should she have to go through the pain of child birth because, she was the victim of an awful crime?

Abortion in cases of rape or incest should be legal. If a female is raped, and would like to get an abortion, she should be able to. It is her right to do anything to her body and the things in her body that she wants. She should not have to go through the pain of child birth and the after affects, all because of some monster.

I hope that you all think about the points I have made, and thank you for reading my arguments.
