While I am heavily against abortion, there's definitely some good arguments for abortion. Would it not be the government killing a woman if abortion was the only way for the lady to survive? When there's legitimate reasons for abortion, it is okay because the woman should be allowed to live more so than the child...If it was an issue of rape then that's not really acceptable, as the woman can just put the child up for adoption.
Although, let's say abortion was made only legal if it meant the life of the woman carrying the baby. Then you'd not only save 1 life by taking 1 unborn, you would be providing a whole new realm of research for scientists to help cure disease and prevent things like the preganent woman from happening as often. Cancer, genetic disabilities, and several flaws could potentially be treated with the study of fetuses.
By doing it you're not only saving 1 life, your saving others and removing need for abortion by preventing disorders that prevent birth. Potentially
That is a very good point, and I appropriate your opinion. But I am not talking about that. I am talking about using abortion as a birth control. The mother decides that she doesn't want to care for and nourish a child, so she has it murdered. That, in my opinion, is just as bad as having the baby born and shooting it.
While Abortion being flaunted as birth control is something I'm strongly against; as I believe that the babies potential to do something great is very possible. I do believe that abortion isn't actually murder of the fetus. There's crimes for killing fetus's too, and criminals can go to jail for a long time for it, but when the mother chooses to abort the child, for whatever, reason it's not technically killing.
Think of it like this: You have a farm. The chicken lays an egg. That chicken could have had some key genetic material in it that could have been revolutionary to science. We go ahead and cook and eat that egg with big smiles on our face. In a sense, it's wrong, and not right and a little messed up even. But it is not animal cruelty. You should not go to prison for eating an egg.
That's the best analogy I can give to shed light on the subject. While it's very wrong to do so, for there are other options, it is not murder due to it not having the same, rights as a chicken does
Yes, but what is it when its a fetus? Is it not technically alive? In my mind it is, because it need nourishment to survive. It is a living, breathing, human being and, even though it is still in the womb, needs to be properly cared for in order to survive.
This shows that it is a human, even though it cannot think for its self.
The unprofessional abortion can be considered feticide, and can be up to 20 years in prison. A professional abortion by a doctor is safe, clean. And to be considered abortion has to meet several requirements before being allowed to abort. You can't abort a 30 week baby? At least I don't think so.
