This is a human life. This is murder. A human life starts at conception. Saying abortion is ok is like saying it's ok to kill your next door neighbor. You have no right to take away this life that hasn't even had a chance yet. This is a pure soul, they have never done anything bad or done anything to harm anyone. This child should at least be given a chance at life.

I am not saying I am for abortion, but I do think it is not a matter of what everyone other than the carrier of the child. You have failed to mention that there is such thing as rape and other causes that are able to get a woman pregnant, not just consensual sex. Say you got pregnant via rape (I don't want to harm anyone emotionally, but just putting it out there). You are young and have a whole life ahead of you. If you don't want a kid, you shouldn't be forced into having one. And let's not forget that it is in fact possible for a woman to die during child birth. I believe that the decision is to be made between the doctor and the woman carrying said child.

Ok, yes rape is terrible and is a very traumatic experience. However it is still murder. God has a plan for all of us (I don't mean to offend anyone if you don't have the same beliefs). God makes everything happen for a reason. Many people say "don't let others make decisions for you." This fetus can't make a decision to be killed. People argue that its the woman's body and they can do what they want with it, but it's not their body they are killing. They are killing a whole other person. No one should have the authority to kill such an innocent creature. It is also true that woman die at birth, but woman also die during the abortion. More than 400 hundred woman have died from abortion (not including illegal ones). It saddens me how woman will risk their lives to kill this one. Many mothers cry over losing a child, whether it be to disease, war, car crashes, miscarriage, or gang violence but these mothers are killing their kids before they have even met them. These mothers knowing and willingly let their children die.

Just as zookdook said, don't bring religion into this. A lot of people either have a lack of, or no, belief in any deity. And their faith is especially crushed when something as traumatizing as rape happens to them. Who would think "God wanted this" when they were just violated, and then impregnated?

There are actually multiple women who are religious and have been raped who believe that this was part of God's plan for them, I know a couple personally. Also many people turn to their faith in their time of need, they usually do not abandon it. No matter what religion, if any, a woman should not have the authority to kill another human being.

I'm just going to finish this by saying that there should be no law that forbids abortion. It is a matter between the two involved, and no one has the right to interfere with that.

Con, do not bring religion into this. It will likely be crushed easily.

That aside, you also failed to address the fact that women die in childbirth, and if she does there's a chance the baby will too.

And, if you insist on bringing God into this, then it could be argued that since God is omniscient and 'has a plan', it's part of his plan for these babies to be aborted.

So religion is irrelevant in this anyway.
