Because a women brought you to this world! What if your mom had aborted you? Think about those can't have kids. If you didn't want a child in the beginning then you would have used protection. Nobody should be killed for no reason. Don't want a child, use protection! It's as simple as that.
Abortion should only be performed if it is for a serious reason, like a life or death situation, a rape from a stranger or family member, or for the baby's sake (you know it's going to die anyways) People should not get an abortion just because they don't want a baby, they have adoption agencies for that reason.
Babies start forming at conception, this means that the child has their right, the child’s right to life. This is against the child’s human rights. The child hasn’t done anything wrong, why should it be killed?
The child hasn’t even lived yet or seen the light of day and you're killing it.
Children are killed because they are not wanted, these children deserve to see the world as it is part of their rights.
Women always are raving about "it's my body; I have autonomy over my own body." It's NOT your body. It is another's body...A very young body, that is inside you for its own protection. You do not own it. The child is not chattel. It is not luggage. It is not tissue. You have no authority to take the life of a pre-born child. If you kill the child (foetus, if you like...It is acceptable to me; the word does not alter the child's sovereignty), you are murdering another human being.
It doesn't seem fair to me, that we would be supporting something that offers people a buffer to having unprotected sex. Furthermore, even unborn children deserve a chance to see the world. The world is a beautiful place, and unborn fetuses deserve a spot in it. I am not host to any political party, I am simply stating what I believe in regards to removing a childs ticket to seeing the world. Unprotected sex is how STDs spread.
Here's a link for pretty much any argument that the pro-choice side has. Also if you are objective and fair enough then the names will not deter you but rather the content of these sites. I doubt any pro-abortionist can debunk any of these.

Abortion is THE human rights issue of our time. People are waking up to that fact. It's easy to turn your head and pretend its not happening, one can also dehumanize the victim just as the Germans did to the Jews while they were being slaughtered. It helps you cope with the act I guess.
The difference in the US is that its been going on for 40 years and 55 million babies have been sacrificed on the altar of the abortion industry under the guise of 'choice'.
Until its abolished, I'll continue to be ashamed of my country.
Human life begins at conception, so to destroy it at any stage of pregnancy is wrong. It is the worst form of murder there is, taking advantage of something that can't defend itself. I wish those pro-murder bigots would shut up about women's right to choose nonsense, women have rights to choose over various matters, but they have no right to kill their own child, the Right to Life is much greater than the Right to Choice, without the Right to Life all other rights are meaningless. Even if a child is rape-conceived, its still a human being and can't be killed, so if a woman doesn't want that child, adoption is the non-cruel option. What happens to a baby during an abortion is far more inhumane and disgusting than what happens to a woman during rape. Thank God for the GOP, who have rightly voted to defund the evil Planned Parenthood in many states and ban partial-birth abortion, hopefully they will appoint judges who will overturn the outrageous Roe vs. Wade decision.
Abortion should be abolished unless the life of the mother is at stake.
Hierarchy of rights-
Woman's right to life
Child's right to life (since it is not yet in the world, unlike the mother)
Woman's right to choice.
A child should never be killed especially when he/she hasn't don't anything wrong.
Murder is the unjust killing of another human being. A child in the first days of their life is another 'human being. In fact, we already have laws which make the unjust killing of a child in the womb prosecutable as 'murders.' (Laci and Conner's Law.) Those laws for now allow for an exception to women who kill their own children with an abortion. We consider that to be an unjust inconsistency in the laws which must be redressed. Abortion is Murder because the laws which permit it (like the laws which once upheld slavery) are themselves unjust.
I personally think if a woman finds herself incompetent of raising a child, whether mentally or physically or financially, I think it her right to abort the baby. I do not want a child to be raised by a woman who can't take care of it, and don't want any more people in poverty. And to people who say it's murder: When people get abortions it tends to be in the early stages, when the fetus (an unborn child) is still a group of developing cells. With that fact and the fact that it is not your baby, I think abortion should be legalized.
If the government really was in which you call pro life , why don't they help the ones who are already suffering?? They should but they don't. Every one in this country is financial struggling and the government can do things that are economically better but they don't do it. The majority of people's salaries goes to insurance for the lower class, struggle at their jobs, and struggle with expenses. And more expenses for the unwanted child and a woman didn't even plan on having another one?? Why make her go through the nine months and then give the child to a foster parent. Most foster caregivers are not really good and the child grows up with disappointment and pain because he's not with his real family. It's a hard fact to face!!! Why put that kind of pain on a child??? Why?? If you're pro life, consider the ones who are alive and suffering and make sure they don't die!! Hey our government is being influenced by religious views!! Wether you know it or not but if our government is being influenced religiously, then so much for equality, we'll never achieve it until the government is 100% secular and reaches every one's needs with out making religious excuses to not take action, including both the majority and the minority. It needs to be focused on the whole population. People should be free to make their choice wether or not to have an abortion, the world is overly populated as it is and there are impoverished countries that are in need of it as well because of the limited resources. America someday might become impoverished as well if we don't do things that are good for the economy. Please everyone make sure that we don't have too many children. Because overpopulation and scarce recourse is no picnic especially for countries in Africa and nations like Haiti, India, and many others!! This is a serious thing to think about!!! This could someday save our lives and the people who love in these countries as well!! So if you say that you're pro life, help the starving, unfortunate, Poor, impoverished, broken, injured, and the homeless. It's better for the financially struggling mom have her baby aborted than to have baby live a life in misery! Please think in secular terms after reading this, thanks.
I think that abortion should not be allowed because it’s stupid girls get pregnant because they don’t use protecting and end up getting pregnant. It should not be allowed because they got into that problem so just have to deal with it it’s not the poor baby's fault it’s the parents fault for not taking care of themselves.
People are so quick to judge the woman about her horrible mistakes and that she should live with them. Everyone makes mistakes, and we should be, as a society, caring for a woman with a horrible choice (either way) and supporting her in her decision. She shouldn't be shamed by being forced to look at pictures of "fetuses that are alive", when most women have their abortion when it isn't even considered a fetus yet. Furthermore, it is a woman's right to choose what she does with her body. If we can make this argument for plastic surgery and anything else and woman (or a man) does with their body, the same can be said for abortion.
Stop shaming women who have abortions. They have been through enough.
Let's say your a teenage girl. Your heading home from school one day and just having a average, typical normal day for a teenage girl. Deciding to take a long route home you walk through a park. It's about 4:30 pm and suddenly the day changes from good to bad. A strange man sits down beside you on a bench and he doesn't look friendly. He threatens to hurt you if you don't follow him. Scared and wary you follow him. He leads you to a public washroom and forces you to get undressed. He then proceeds to rape you. A few months later you get a test. It's positive and you haven't even finished high school yet. Your life is ruined. After being forced to have the child you don't know what to do. Your parents are very stressed and you can understand that. High school is a lot more difficult because you have to take care of this child and also finish schoolwork. And you feel like your life is a living hell.
Now, let's say this girl had an abortion. It would fix a lot of her problems. She wouldn't have to use up money to take care of it and she would almost have a regular teenage life. She shouldn't have to be weighed down with this burden. It would help her improve her life to the point where she's READY to have a child.
Besides if abortions were illegal think about how many orphans there would be.
You cant control a person on what to do with their own body. And its their right to do what they what to it. And what if they did get raped, some women might not be okay with a baby growing inside them; a constant reminder of what had happened to them. Or what if they can barely take care of themselves.
Abortion should not be illegalised when for years people were protesting for it to be legalised and now it is they don't want it to be! They should be able to chose what happens to their body and if they have a baby in them that they don't want to be there then they should be given the choice to get rid of it. At the point of an abortion, the baby is not even formed properly so you cant say that an innocent baby is being killed because it isn't even a proper baby its only a fetus! Therefore abortion should not be banned!
All the people here say that they can just put it up for adoption, but what if the girl was raped? What if the girl will die from the operation? What if the child should have a disease that will make it suffer? The child in question is not unborn, it isn't even construed, by the time a woman finds out she's pregnant it isn't even alive yet, it is developing. So why is it your argument is all about how it's killing a baby? What of the adoption centers either? They are usually well kept, but not always, sometimes they're environments can be extremely harmful to them. Another thing is limiting the population, the populous is strictly getting way too high, so limits on population like this could support that! Lastly the woman's right to decide whether she wants a baby she didn't mean to have is their decision, not yours
Just in case of rap or incest. If a person objects to having an abortion, then they should not have one. But no one else should be denied to the right to have one. Fetuses are not people with a full slate of rights like the mother has. So their should not be banned abortion
It is important to keep abortion legal. Women are not incubators and should never be forced to continue a pregnancy if they do not want to. Abortion is an important human right and banning it would be devastating for American women. If you don't trust us with a choice, why would you trust us with a child?
