The desire for abortion is subjective and as we know, subjective feelings are kept out of arguments. So, I say that objectively, the direct intent to determine the fetus is considered murder. Now as to whether the murder of the unborn is different than the murder of alive, there is a difference because the baby is 100% dependent on the mother for survival. If something is clinging onto you for dear life, then you have the right of liberty to free yourself from the pregnancy, regardless of whether subjectively it is considered moral or immoral.

Abortion punishes the unborn child who communicated no crime. Would you like it if you are the fetus that is being aborted? Life is precious and should not be thrown away just because the mother is irresponsible or incapable of taking care of it. Unless, the unborn child endanger the mother's life and incest/rape. Keep in mind "Who are we to decide whether this unborn child to live or not?". Life is precious and shouldn't be thrown away to for the right of liberty to free yourself from the pregnancy. Instead of having abortion legalized we should educate people about ways to not get pregnant and costing a unborn children life.

First of all, you just supported my side that abortion should be legal under certain circumstances. You said, "Unless, the unborn child endanger the mother's life and incest/rape." It committed no crime but all of a sudden you make an exception if it is a rape. If the condom broke, then you think you cannot kill the child but if you get raped you might just have to kill it. You literally just said, "Abortion punishes the unborn child who communicated no crime." That completely contradicts the side that you are arguing for.

Also, every single one of your arguments were subjective. "Abortion punishes the unborn child." How is making it as though it never existed bad. It never will have to feel pain and remember it. Also, you say life is precious, which is subjective to your personal beliefs, which you just contradicted earlier. You also said, "Who are you to decide whether this unborn child to live or not?" (I directly quoted your poor grammar). If I was the mother who is keeping the fetus, then you better believe that I have the right to have an abortion. Also, I could just as easily say that you are killing a potential life by not having sex right now. What would the difference be between that and an abortion? Both directly result in no child being born. If life is so sacred, make as much of it as possible. I agree that we should educate people on how to not get pregnant because an abortion costs anywhere from $300-$800, according to http://www.plannedparenthood.org....

Also, provide objective evidence for the reason why abortion should be illegal. If you do not know what they are, look up objective and subjective.

Because the unborn is completely dependent on the mother for survival, she is free to kill her baby. Just how sick is that.
