Abortion should be illegal. The reason why I say this is because, abortion is like murder. I you feel like you are not ready to take care of a baby, then you should make the right choice and give it up for adoption. Or, you could take your baby to a fire station/ police station. No girl/woman should ever think about getting an abortion.

There are roughly one million abortions every year in the united states alone [1]. There are also currently 100k children eligible for adoption [2]. We do not have the infrastructure to add 1 Mil children to that amount every single year. In 10 years there would be roughly 10.1 million kids, or 3% of the total US population.

I agree that there are a lot of children eligible for adoption, but if someone gets an abortion, they are basically killing their baby. That is considered murder in my opinion. If you were a young girl/adult and you felt like you couldn't take care of your baby, would you rather kill your baby or give it to someone that really wants a baby?

If there were enough people that wanted babies for all of the children in the country to be adopted, I would be against abortion. Con is using an is-ought fallacy here. This means that they are arguing using what ought to be the case, rather than using what is the case.

Saying that is like saying drivers should not be given treatment for car wrecks because they knew the risks before driving; or like smokers should not be given treatment because they knew what smoking does to the lungs.

so, David. It is an economic thing. Well just get rid of all the fraud in government and welfare and there would be enough to take care of 20 times that many.

How did having a baby change from being a blessing to being a curse?
