Just about every time there is a debate on abortion, it is inevitable that the pro choice party claims that because it is the women's body, it's her choice whether the baby can live or not. I have posted this because I believe that it is an irrelevant argument. It has nothing to to in a debate of morals.
First of all, the choice is made when you choose to have sex. I am not saying you can't have sex the way you want, but when you have sex you should know the consequences, and if you get pregnant, that does not justify the denial of life.
Also, the right to ones time doesn't equal another's right to life. Pro choice people will often give you complicated reasons to justify abortions, but in nearly every single case, those are not the core of there beliefs, they simply want to be able to do what they want and not have to pay the consequences.
Also, saying her body her choice, you imply this it concerns no one except the would-be mother, but what about the father? I don't see why the father of the child would have no say in the abortion. Just because the mother has to carry it why does the father have to live with knowing that he will never know how the child could have lit up his life. Why should he have to live with that? For the mothers convenience?
You simply can't make a valid argument with these four words, as they leave far to much out of the equation.
A woman should be allowed to do whatever she wants with her body under the right circumstances. I understand why you would want the father to have a say in it, but what if the father isn't a good man? What if the woman was raped, or is in no way shape or form ready to be a mother? Why should she be forced to have the kid? In my eyes, its wrong to bring an unwanted child into the earth. Sure, you could give it up for adoption, but what are the chances it will end up in the wrong home or better yet, a foster home or orphanage? The world is already overpopulated, so women should be allowed the choice to do what they want with their bodies. First of all, not all women choose to have sex. Unfortunately, in the world we live in, women get raped a lot. There is a countless amount of scenarios in which a woman could have non-consensual sex. Imagine how many date-rape babies would be born if women weren't allowed to do what they want with their bodies. How many unwanted children that could warrant. Can't you see the rise in the amount of homeless people that would eventually cause? All of the sudden jobs are harder to get because there are more people than jobs. Women have never been allowed full control over their bodies. In the U.S. government, there are barely any female senators. How would you feel if a bunch of old white men got to tell you what to do with your body? Second of all, if that's what women want to do with their life, why shouldn't they be allowed to? You can argue morals all you want, but some people don't have them, and many peoples belief systems differ. The way I see it, men have been allowed to walk away from their children and leave a single mother with hardly any judgement. Why can't women do the same? Why is there a stigma that women must want kids or that they must have them? What if they just don't want them? Some men don't want children, and that's socially acceptable. But men still contribute to the problem. Lastly, the father definitely should have a say if he's a good man. But if the father is a good man, why would there even be an argument? The thing is, good men help and support the women they impregnate and come to logical conclusions because their good. But not every father deserves a chance to help make that decision. At the end of the day, if hes ready to be a parent and she isn't, she's the one who has to carry the human for 9 months and primarily care for it for a long time. Both parents need to be ready to commit.
You simply couldn't say much otherwise when you think about the bigger picture here!
