Abortion is fine
Debate Rounds (3)
I also maintain the view that legal and safe abortion reduce the horrors of unsafe abortions.
at least later in pregnancy, a mother has two things working against her... one is that it's not as morally gray and she had a chance to abort earlier when morally grayer and didnt, and the other is she had a choice to have sex and risk pregnancy.
'abortion is fine' gives no respect to the point in the pregnancy it occurs, or other circumstances, which respect should be given cause the fetus has rights too.
The argument of when an abortion can take place in my eyes is a separate one. I am simply arguing that the option should be available and I assume you are taking the stance that this shouldn't be the case.
My argument is based on idea that applying the rule that it the choice should not be available means that regardless of a person's circumstances they do not have the option to have an abortion regardless of how devastating the consequences could be for them and that child. I do believe that contraception should be a first port of call however, a condom is only effective 99.9% of the time and the same goes for hormonal contraception, this means even where someone has taken every reasonable precaution it is still completely possible that a person could end up pregnant.
