On the topic of abortion, a common stance is that abortion is immoral but it should be legal. I can see why an anarchist would believe this, but I find the stance to be common among libertarians and I don't see any reasoning behind it. If you agree with this stance, answer these questions for me:

Why do you believe that abortion is immoral?

Why do you believe that abortion should be legal?
I don't have a signature. :-)

Even if we were to accept abortion is immoral, it doesn't matter because the notion is that if abortion were illegal, it wouldnt deter the amount of abortions. Thus, even if it were immoral, making it illegal wouldn't do anything but harm more mothers through dangerous abortions.

If you agree with this stance, answer these questions for me:

Why do you believe that abortion is immoral?

No

Why do you believe that abortion should be legal?

Yes

A question beginning with "why" can't be answered with yes or no. I was asking people who agree with the stance to explain their reasoning.

The fetus isn't human, nor can it feel pain. Since sentience is basis of morality, (pleasure/suffering), fetus can't be considered morally relevant.

Why do you believe that abortion should be legal?

Because it ends teenage pregnancy, which if not allowed to end, ruins someones life. And, if it were to be illegal, back alley abortions would happen which are dangerous

First you must negate that fetus is life, since right to life outweighs property
