Abortion is Wrong
Debate Rounds (3)
Abortion isnt murder. According to dictionary.com abortion is the "removal of the embryo or fetus in order to end pregnancy".it doesn't say anything about murder. Also, the fetus isn't a child. Its a group of cells and tissue. Did i also mention it doesn't even have a brain? It can also be considered a parasite since it gets all its nutrients and vitals from the host. Parasites dont always harm the host either. A fetus doesn't have any human like characteristic as i explained earlier.
A woman should be able to have an abortion if she can't take care of the baby. She shouldn't have to take care of it if she doesn't want too. Having children is a big step in life. Mentally and financially. No woman should have to do that until shes ready. Even if a woman was going to give the child up for adoption she might not want to spend months being pregnant. Pregnancy takes its toll on the body and changes it forever. She might also have to work to earn money. No woman should have to be pregnant if they dont want too.
Abotion isnt selfish. The mother isn't ready for a child and why should she have it if she doesn't want it? Its not fair for her to have to spend years of her life caring for the child when she could be in school, collage, or working. Also, most women who can't get abortions can afford taking care of children either. It would be unfair for the child to not be taken care of properly. Also the child wouldn't have love either because the mother never wanted it in the first place.
Yes, i can see there are plenty of girls having children and women who would want thoes children but even though adoption is a good idea the mother is still going to have to go through pregnancy. Being pregnant changes the body in so many ways. Girls arent ready for it and shouldn't have to be put through it. Also its not safe for girls to have children. When humans where starting to evolve it was safe for younger women to have children but not anymore. Stats show that most complications are with young mothers.
As said in my previous argument, the fetus isn't living. Its technically a parasite because it depends on the mother for everything. It doesn't even have a heart or brain, which are qualities of living humans.
For you next argument I'd like you to answer these questions
Since your defonition of anortion is murder, does that mean misscarriges are involuntary manslaughter? From www.sceptial-science.com
Also, wouldn't be putting a mother in a position to take care of a child when she isn't ready for it also punishment?
