I am against abortion, and I would like to debate someone who thinks it is the womans right to choose abortion.

I am operating under the assumption that you agree with me that a woman can not kill her 2 year old son. So let us look at the differences between a fetus and a 2 year old. There are only four differences:
1. Location
2. Level of Dependency
3. Size
4. Level of Development

Location
The location of a person never determines his or her right to life.

Level of Dependency
Just because, the fetus depends on his or her mother for his or her life, does not make the fetus more or less human. Siamese twins depend on each other for life, but we do not deny them the right to life. A man who has diabetes and is dependant upon insulin to live does not have less right to life than someone without diabetes.

Size
A newborn who is 20 inches is no less of a person than a full grown adult. Which brings me to my final topic.

Level of Development
A fetus is not as developed as a newborn, just as a 6 year old boy is not as developed as a 30 year old man.

Based on these arguments a fetus is no less human than any 2 year old.
