Hell yes! It is a woman's right to have an abortion! She cannot be denied this right! Besides, its not infanticide because the fetus is not acctually alive yet!

well you have to consider that when a woman gets an abortion they are killing a baby, and that would qualify as murder!

But the baby is not acctually alive yet... A similar scenario would be when we eat eggs for breakfast- It is not life yet only potential life.

well a sperm cell is considered alive.

The only problem is that we kill cells all the time, one cell doesn't matter so much. The line is drawn between murder and cancellation of the fetus ONLY when the fetus develops a brain and isn't until quite some time.

well you have to know that when we killed other cells it isn't murder because we are the superior species and when we kill a sperm cell it is the same as killing a human being which in America is considered as murder. When a sperm cell goes into a woman's fetus it is multiplying which would mean that it is considered as an organism

What happens when we cut ourselves and lose blood cells? we dont cry about it or make a scene do we?

well the blood that leaves your body doesn't have the potential of becoming a human being, but a sperm cell does.
