Pro

The abortion takes place in the first trimester, when the fetus don"t exist. The Fetus is incapable of feeling pain when the process of abortion is going on. Women have the right to choose what to do with their bodies.

Con

An abortion can result in medical complications later in life; the risk of ectopic pregnancies doubles, and the chance of a miscarriage and pelvic inflammatory disease also increases. Abortion should not be used as another form of contraception. Abortion is not used as a form of contraception. Pregnancy can occur even with responsible contraceptive use. Only 8% of women who have abortions do not use any form of birth control, and that is due more to individual carelessness than to the availability of abortion.

Pro

She"s the mother, she should decide what happens with her baby.
There are already too many unwanted babies in our world. Why add more?
Life doesn"t really start until birth. Every baby has the right to have a family that cares and loves him or her; if this is not possible, abortion should be okay.

Con

If the pregnancy was the mistake of the mother, she should have to deal with the consequences. All babies are special, a woman could abort a fetus that could have been president/important figure. If abortions are accepted and easy to obtain, people will use them as a form of birth control. The rights of the unborn child are equal to those of her mother.

Reasons for voting decision: It's subjective to say that a fetus doesn't exist during the first trimester, it's just "Tissue" huh? It's strange, every Mammal in the world is referred to as a "Fetus" during the first trimester except humans...we're just tissue. "She's the Mother, she should decide what happens to her baby" - under this logic it would be perfectly fine to drown an infant in the bathtub at 3 months old because she's the Mother and it's her decision. Since when did pain become the deciding factor in whether or not it's acceptable to kill something? It can't feel pain...so if you give a 2yr old a full dose of anesthetic then it's ok to kill it because it won't feel it? And "Too many unwanted babies" - that's justification for killing one? If you can't feel pain...is it ok to kill you? If you've never experienced life...is it ok to kill you? Fetus, tissue, organic matter, it's all alive...it isn't dead. Abort is synonymous with Kill. Something must be alive in order to kill it.
