It may be legal, which I believe is fair; however, Abortion is absolutely not the "Pro-Choice". I agree, women should have the right to choose if she wants to have an abortion. To me, Abortion is not a legal issue but is a moral issue. Let's say you just got an abortion. That fetus that was once in your womb is now dead and the baby's soul has been taken away because of your actions. What i dont understand is how do you go on living your life knowing that you killed what would have become a human being? Another question is, "What if that baby/person could have discovered the cure for cancer or AIDS?" This could never happen because of the fate of your descision but you will never know the answer to that question. Anyway, back to my main point. When you get an abortion, you are killing somebody. Besides the fact that this fetus/person does not have the intelligence or the choice to decide. Their fate is in your hands; your choice is to either give birth to a child and send it to an orphanage or a foster home, which is a way better choice or get an abortion killing your future son/daughter. Think about it...

Thank you for proposing this debate.

Firstly, I do not understand how on Earth you have the audacity to question the morality of abortion when you refer to a child as 'it'.

Where is your definitive proof of a soul? You're taking this to mythical grounds there is no evidence for souls nor religion in general but there is evidence for science. You're quite right, the fetus could have been discovered the aforementioned cures but there is also 7.125 other people in the world which could also discover these things? The probability is very low that they will discover a cure to these problems all by themselves.

Legal abortion protects women's health and saves women's lives. The question is whether abortion should be legal, safe and dignified, or illegal, dangerous and fraught with fear and humiliation which pro-lifers would most certainly prevent. If you outlawed abortion you would indeed make way for unsafe backstreet abortions which put a woman's life in complete jeopardy.

What about rape? A mother and child would have to suffer that reminder for the rest of their lives. You honestly think that is fair for these people to be psychologically reminded all of the time. That is immoral.

The question of morality could actually be completely shifted. You are pretty much arguing against freedom. You argument really has evidently no basis.

Being pro-choice means supporting every woman's right to make informed, responsible decisions about pregnancy and childbearing. "Abortion on demand"" is inflammatory rhetoric meant to polarize the debate and suggest that women are frivolous and irresponsible. I support the balance struck in Roe v. Wade, which allows the woman to make the decision about an abortion prior to fetal viability.

There are many different moral and religious views on the question of whether a fetus is a human life. In a country that embraces and is tolerant of a variety of religious views, it is important to avoid adopting one religious view over another. That is why every woman should have the right to examine her own religious, spiritual and ethical beliefs in deciding what is best for her and her family, rather than allowing the government to impose one view on all Americans.

Pro-lifers would argue that a fetus is a separate life completely disconnected from the mothers life. The fetus is totally dependent on the woman until viability, when it could live outside the womb, and it depends on the woman until it is born. The health of the fetus is directly related to the health of the pregnant woman, which is an additional reason why we need to work for policies that promote healthy childbearing and when absolutely necessary an abortion should be available but oh wait, it is immoral to save a humans life right?
