I don't feel that the pro-choice movement is selfish at all. Any and every movement such as this has the right to move forward in their beliefs. Why should this cause be considered selfish compared to others. Many may not agree with the procedures and ideas but that should cause the movement to be labeled selfish.
The claim that this is about women's rights is ridiculous. Women have unrestricted access to literally every other medical procedure they can get.
To make a question of the make-up of a human life into an argument for the 'right' to terminate that life is selfish, plain and simple.
If the pro-choice movement would make arguments about the humanity of the fetus, then I'd be much more supportive, but as it stands now, it's selfish, narcissistic, and ignorant.
You don't fire a gun into a crowd and complain about your right to shoot it, do you?
Not only does the movement promote a selfish, narcissistic attitude - by giving the illusion that better 'laid' plans supersede accountability, but it propagates the idea that the trade off is too great a sacrifice for a bit of your life - to carry a baby to term and give it life. It abnormally shuts down natural responses to nurturing the new life which is a part of YOU.
It is obviously selfish, indeed selfish as it can get, because one is not, as many people would like to believe, merely a decision about one's own body, but a decision involving the body, nay, the whole possible life of another being.
Not realizing this is even worse, and goes beyond mere selfishness.
How is it selfish for me to decide what to do with my own body?
Other than that, it's kind of ridiculous to assume that women are just going in to get an abortion without thinking about it and agonizing about it. It's just plain, flat out lying to act like the decision is easy for them.
Women are doing what's best for everybody involved, the potential child included, for the most part when they choose to get an abortion. I know that's hard for most people to understand, but sometimes reality is a harsh mistress.
I don't believe it's selfish in the least. Its your body after all. You do what you want with it. Maybe the reason she's getting an abortion is because she can't raise the kid, or has the means of giving the kid a healthy environment to live in. Its like asking what is more selfish. Giving birth to a baby you can't support or having the baby you can't support.
The pro-choice movement is about a woman's CHOICE to do what she wants with her body. It is the exact opposite of selfish. Making a woman carry fetus to term when she does not want to because of your beliefs is selfish. You are forcing her to behave in a manner that you want her to. It is selfless to allow someone to make their own choice whether or not it is the choice you would choose for yourself. If you force a woman to carry a fetus she does not want then she will not respect her body or the fetus and wouldn't care for herself properly like someone who wanted the pregnancy would. There would be a higher rate of FAS babies being born and babies addicted to other various substances.
