Debate Rounds (5)
You are wrong. You are wrong when you say it is a baby when the abortion is performed. An abortion is performed within the first trimester. This is a period when there is no baby yet. There is only a sperm and an egg that have joined together. There is only a cluster of cells. That's it. Nothing else. There is no baby to kill at that point.
Abortions are a WOMAN'S personal, private medical decision. It is VERY personal. No one has the right to say what a woman does with her own body.
Do not come back at me and say it is against your religion. That is wrong. If someone says, "You can't get an abortion because it's against my religion," that's like saying "I'm a vegetarian so you can't eat meat."
People, especially men, have NO RIGHT to tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body. An abortion is not killing a baby. It is the removal of a few cells. End of story.
Second Point: You stated this "If a woman has a baby and gives it up for adoption there will always feel like a part of her is missing." lets say a women gets pregnant from a one night fling or accidentally with a boyfriend/ husband. You are saying that this woman wouldn't feel like a piece of her is missing if she got an abortion? She would feel more pain by giving it up for adoption and letting her child live and enjoy life? Also women don't "create life" men are a huge part in the life making process.
Third Point: "You are wrong when you say it is a baby when the abortion is performed. An abortion is performed within the first trimester. This is a period when there is no baby yet." This is the mane point of the whole abortion argument so I don't expect to change your mind but let me say this. The first trimester means nothing. Just because the human hasn't fully developed doesn't mean it won't eventually develop into a human. For example before a tree grows and is a seed in the ground is the seed not an important part of the trees growing cycle and only when the seed starts growing out of the grown is when we should care? The answer is no. The beginning stages even though they are very early on are still significant and aborting during this time is murder. The early stages are when humans are at their most vulnerable and don't have the ability to defend themselves. So finally just because its the first trimester doesn't matter it IS still going to become a human at this point of pregnancy and there for it is a human no matter how early.
Forth Point: You say "No one has the right to say what a woman does with her own body [while pregnant]." You are wrong about this because once a woman is pregnant there is another life inside her and this life should have the same rights as her. The only difference is that the life inside her is in a development stages and just because it is developing doesn't mean it shouldn't have any less rights than you and me.
Fifth Point: I am not using religion as my reason against abortion.
Final Point: You act like "these cells" are not important and have no meaning. You are wrong this is a significant part in the development a human. "These cells" even though small and minuscule are still important and are still a developing human.
A man does not have the right to tell a woman she can't do something concerning her own body. You don't. It's not your body so you don't get a say. It's not the same as telling a historian that they can't have an opinion on the time period they study. You are stretching what I say. Men do not deserve to have an opinion on a woman's own personal medical business as it does not occur in their own bodies.
Yes a woman probably would feel... Weird after getting an abortion, like wondering. But definitely not like a part of her life is missing because she wouldn't not have carried another life inside her for 9 months and given birth to it. She would not have had life in her body at all as at the time, there is no baby. Only cells. I cannot stress this enough: it is no Abby at the time of abortion. That's like saying we shouldn't eat eggs because they may turn into a chicken one day.
You have no right to tell a woman what she can do with her body. You do not automatically deserve it. It is a woman's personal right. A cell doesn't have rights. Abortion is not murder.
*also, you may want to check your spelling. You have a lot of misspelled words. It doesn't really help your argument.
Point Two: I wont tell a women what to do with her body until that women is responsible for another persons life. That is when she gains responsibility of the person inside them.
Part three: This is where we disagree. After a women gets an abortion they are going to feel a lot more than weird. Here are just some emotional outcomes form abortion http://americanpregnancy.org...
Also life begins at conception because when the cell becomes fertile it will become a human. Please tell me what is the fertile cell going to become? Is it fertile just because? There for by getting an abortion all you are doing is terminating the first step of human growth, there for killing that human. Finally store bought eggs will not become chickens because they are store bought eggs.
Final Point: Again I do have the right to fight for other people"s rights, which is what I am doing specifically those who are defenseless. You are right everyday cells do not have rights but fertile human cells do.
You say you will have something to say when a woman is responsible for another human life. Imagine you are a woman. Imagine you live in a very dangerous place, you have no money, no stability, you are scared, your boyfriend has left, you are on your own. You are pregnant. Do you really think that a wealthy white guy sitting in Congress of wherever has the right to tell you that you need to have that baby? They don't have to live where you live. They don't rxperience what you experience. They don't have a right.
There is no baby to kill at the time of abortion.
A woman's body is a woman's body and no man has the right to tell her what to do with it especially if she is pregnant.
Men may have an opinion about abortion, but you DO NOT have a right.
