give me 3 reason why we should keep it?
GiantSpoonMan

I'm curious why my opponent decided not to post an argument. However, I will respect the question.

1. It's the mothers choice whether or not she wants to keep a child that she is physically creating. A child is simply an extension of it's mother. Most people argue that adoption is always better than abortion. It takes a physical toll on a person to carry a baby inside of them for nine months then give birth to that baby and then give the baby to another family. Is it really fair to do this to someone?

2.Abortion is extremely safe for the mother and is legal. If abortion is banned people wouldn't simply change their views on having children. Mothers would still get abortions but they would be unsafe and now illegal. Would you rather a mother get an abortion by a doctor in an office with all the right equipment, or in some old apartment from a shady guy on the street with a pair of tongs.

3. How is abortion the same as murder? Are zygotes now considered human beings? If not, when does one become a human being? When most abortions occur the "baby" is just a cluster of cells. Should we also ban masturbation due to the fact that you are technically killing potential babies.

Women can get pregnant from failed contraceptives.
Women can get pregnant from being raped.
Women can have ectopic pregnancies.

These are what abortion is for, not women "having drunk sex with that guy at the bar."

if you don't want a child, don't go have drunk sex with that guy at the bar. The problem is the women that are being stupid. If they didn't do that, then problem eliminated!

it's a mothers choice if they would like an abortion, considering the baby is the women's body.
