Some consider abortion to be murder since the being inside the mother is living. The definition of something living includes the ability to grow, which is exactly what is going on inside a woman who is pregnant. Adoption is always brought up when people talk about aborting an unwanted child. The idea of aborting a child who would make a welcome addition to another family's household is expressed by many pro-life individuals. A child doesn't have a choice. If you got pregnant it's your fault and should be responisible to raise a child.

I accept the debate and, as common debate etiquette, shall wait for round 2. I also put forth these definitions:

abortion - the deliberate medical procedure involving termination of a human pregnancy.

genetic human - one who holds the traits of being a human per their genes.

moral human - one who is human due to personhood traits.
