Abortion is a controversial thing in modern society.

Personally, it doesn't make sense to cause an uproar.

A mother has every right to do what she wants with her baby. She created that life herself and she can easily take it away. Are you going through the pain and suffering of having 20 pounds out your vagina? If the mother sees she is not fit for a baby then she has every right to do so.

Then, hordes of people starts whining "Oh no the fetus has so much potential!" and "The fetus couldn't decide for itself!" without knowing the whole story, and she's a stranger to the whiners! All there is as a debate is "sympathy". "Sympathy" is not getting you anywhere logically because it is running on emotions, not logic. Those who run on emotions and morals are blinded from seeing what is best and what are facts.

They don't know her, they don't know how she is mentally, she is nothing but a stranger to them. Then, all these "slacktivist" starts causing an uproar because they "totally knows what's best for another woman's child!"

What the slacktivist don't realize abortion isn't just black and white. It's extremely circumstantial.

Such as rape, underage, can't afford, birth defects, irresponsible mother, having a baby that will endanger your life, a stop to a career, overpopulation, and the list never stops!

Maybe 1 out of the 10 aborts for the heck of it. If you stop making abortions an options what about everyone else?

Another final point I'm going to add, if you're against abortions, what are you gonna do? Huh? You're throwing this financial weight on a female that is really don't want we should expect you to do something right?

Unless you are going to support that baby until adulthood you have no right to say because that baby is not yours and has no ties or connections to you. You're doing nothing but yelling over a keyboard.

Thanks for reading all of this, I'm a total amateur at debates but this is something I feel very passionate about. I'm very excited to hear what you guys have to say!

For my first argument i would like to focus on what appeared to be your main support for why abortion should be an option, which was that babies can be a huge burden on the life of women. This is a statement in which i can agree with 100% but after saying this i would like to say that having a child does not have to be a burden(except for the 9 months of pregnancy) due to the fact that their are many options as to where the child can go once being born. One of these places can be with a family. I completely understand that sometimes family members may be the ones pushing for an abortion or not accepting of a child but even then there are other options. The next option would be to put your pre-born child up for adoption. This method would allow you to choose parents that you deem to be right. Lastly i would like to say that if putting a child up for is too hard to go through, with then you can drop a child off at Police stations, hospitals, rescue squads, and fire houses as part of the safe haven protection laws. In conclusion i would to say that if a person wishes to abort a baby they should first attempt to go through one of the processes above.
If the instigator wishes to ask me to counter one of her other arguments or explain my argument further i would be happy to do so.
Definition: Safe-haven law- Laws that allow an unharmed infant to be relinquished to the proper authorities( Police stations, hospitals, rescue squads, and fire houses), no questions asked.

In other words, according to you, the mother has the right to arbitrarily degrade a human to a subhuman, and declare it kill able at will based on convenience.
Will be interesting to read the debate.
