1. Aborting is just as bad as murder. Even though many people claim that it's not a human being, it has the potential to be human being. If you burn a seed, than there is no way it will be a tree.

2. Many people will argue that the baby is a parasite until it is born. However, if you think of it like that, think of a baby. That baby requires near constant work and attention, money, sacrifice. That baby is technically a parasite to the family as it takes many things and yet gives nothing back. In this logic, babies should be kill able.

3. Many people use the excuse that if it wasn't legal, people would do it very dangerously anyways. However, making illegal would reduce the number of them.

If the mother's life is at stake then do it, but this is very rare. However, in America, we have aborted millions of innoccent babies.

Well, abortion is certainly ethical in cases where if the fetus is not aborted, there is a high risk of death to both the mother and fetus. Such as in the Irish case recently where the Catholic hospital refused to perform the abortion and murdered the mother by this decision. Yes, modern ethics states it is ethical to perform an abortion in such circumstances, Catholic dogma says no!
Modern ethics is superior to Christian dogma.
The Irish government has changed the rules to allow abortions when the mother's life is at stake and is essentially kicking out their long Christian domination.
Ethics notches up a win over dogma!
Ireland made the best decision to allow such abortions!
Aye M8z! :-D-& It is justifiable!
