The question of abortion has always to be considered a matter of freedom of choice for individual women. There are too many issues that the choice of abortion entails to make it a decision that has absolute say over all situations. The free choice of having an abortion has a large impact on a woman's ability to determine her own life. The mere fact of becoming pregnant can present so many difficulties to a woman's ability to make choices about her future. Men have this freedom to walk away from something that does not promote their own self interests, because they do not have to carry a baby, nor take care of it unless they choose to, but women do not have many options that are self interested unless they have the option of abortion. It is a matter of making woman legally the equivalent of men regarding the choice of having a child or raising it. Women cannot truly have the same opportunities that men have unless they have control over their reproductive roles.
It's moral in the sense that a woman should be able to do what she chooses with her body. It's wrong to use abortion as a means of birth control in most cases but there are times when it's in the best interest of everyone for the woman not to have the child.
It's always a hard subject as there are good arguments on both sides, but saying a woman is immoral for having an abortion is wrong.
Yes, abortion is moral. Not in all cases like if the woman really was stupid and didn't protect herself but if the woman was in danger in any way when the child was conceived or if the pregnancy itself will hurt the mother to be then she should be able to have an abortion.
If you do not agree with abortion don't have one. Women who choose to have abortions shouldn't be made to feel like a bad person. It's her life, we all only live once and it isn't fair that someone who cant cope with being a mother, got pregnant from rape, got pregnant in school, cant have a baby for health reasons, or whatever the reason is, doesn't want a child shouldn't HAVE to have one. It's their decision to make no one else's. You can't just say if she does not want the baby put it up for adoption because it is not that easy, she still has to go through pregnancy, and that child will probably end up in care. Unless you want to go and adopt the huge number of children living in care don't use it as an argument. By definition it is not murder. Abortion is not right in certain situations, abortions shouldn't be used as contraception and shouldn't be done after 16-20 weeks. But abortion as a whole is not wrong.
The fetus doesn't have any rights under the universal declaration for human rights. The women has the right to choose what she wishes to her body. Also, if she were forced to remain pregnant that would be against section 12 of the Canadian charter of rights and freedoms. Her body, Her choice!
If you kill a human you should go to jail because it is human creaulty. People want have sex because of fun and not thinking of the responsibility of the child. If they use a condom they have 1/6 chance of having a baby, so tough luck. It should be illegal and if they find people doing it they should have to go to jail and a fine
If abortion was going against the principal moral then why do doctors go against what god had decided. I a disease was meant to kill you because god had said so, then why do you go against that. If abortion was going against the principals of wrong, then doctors don't have morals.
The only reason why humans feel sorry for the murder of another person is because there are people who still have affection for that individual. If no one has affection for a murder, nobody will care, and same goes with abortion. It's only moral if it doesn't impact other people (apart from the victim). The reason why people hate abortion so much is because it classifies as murder, despite it not affecting them in any way.
If a pregnant woman were to get hit by a drunk driver and the baby inside of her die and the mother still live the driver would still get involuntary manslaughter because we have the fetal homicide laws. The fetal homicide law says that if someone kills a fetus involuntary or voluntary, they are subject to manslaughter punishment. What is the difference between that and abortion?
The fetuses are completely oblivious to what's going on inside the womb, that's just a holding place for them to grow and develop more. The brain is not fully functioning when the baby is in its fetus stage, its only objective is to find food to survive. Killing a baby while inside the womb is the choice of the mother and it always should be. Does she think she's ready to be a mother in this tough society? However no matter what people will always be for abortion and against abortion it just depends on the person. Why bring a baby in this world if you're a crack addict? You know, get yourself together before you wreck your baby's life. And don't give me that adoption crap. Anyone who births a baby would want to be apart of their child's life no matter what not see it get raised by a family of strangers.
Killing children is never moral. Simply the way they kill them is inexcusably inhumane. There are four ways that unborn babies are killed. Look at this quote from an information site
(1) The suction method.
During an early pregnancy, the doctor can insert a tube through the opening of the mother’s womb, and connect it to a suction apparatus. The vacuum on the apparatus is so powerful that the fetus is instantly broken up into a mass of blood and tissue, and quickly passes through the tube, and is collected in a bottle.
(2) The forceps method.
Sometimes the doctor dilates the mouth of the womb, and inserts a spoon-like instrument with sharp edges (called a forceps). He reaches in with this tool and scrapes out the baby (and also the placenta). Sometimes he has to cut the baby into several pieces in order to get it out. The larger parts are cut into smaller pieces and spooned out piece by piece, and then discarded.
(3) The Caesarean-type method.
Larger babies may require an abdominal operation. The womb is cut open and the baby is lifted out. It usually squirms and moves its arms and legs; it tries to breathe; the heart often continues to beat; but the organs are not sufficiently developed, and so within a few hours, it usually dies.
(4) The chemical method.
The doctor sticks a large needle through the wall of the mother’s abdomen and into the womb. A strong, salt-water solution is injected. The baby thrashes around for a few moments, and then soon dies. Within twenty-four hours, labor starts, and the dead body is delivered.
Abortion is nothing but barbarianism in the Twentieth Century! No wonder some nurses are rebelling. They are expected to finish the work of abortion, by taking the crushed, bloody mass of the fetus, and then disposing of it.
Would you call this a woman's choice?
People talk like pregnancy is something that just happens to women and they can do nothing about it except terminate an existing pregnancy. They may throw out the fact that birth control can sometimes fail, so even responsible women can end up pregnant. They ignore that there is a fail-safe way to avoid pregnancy, avoid sex. When a child is conceived, the parents have (albeit sometimes unintentionally) committed to caring for that child, whether it be raising it, giving it up for adoption or some other method. Since a fetus cannot be safely removed from the womb and given the chance to develop somewhere else, the woman's stuck with it until birth. Yeah, it sucks, but actions have consequences. Take them like a woman.
It's wrong to kill a human being. They don't have nothing wrong, its a girl's fault that she wanted to have sex with her boyfriend. They should thought of it before getting an abortion. They need to be sure they want to have the kid. They need to realize that they are killing a baby in their womb
First I’ll show the right to life.
1) All human beings have the right to life.
2) Fetuses are human beings
C) Fetuses have the right to life.
Let me anticipate 3 objections:
1. “Fetuses are not conscious and therefore, have no right to life.”
Answer: Unconscious born human beings have the right to life so therefore, unborn human beings must also have the right to life. We don't give up our right to life when we are in a coma or are asleep.
2. “Fetuses can’t feel pain and therefore have no right to life.”
Answer: The right to life is not contingent upon the capacity to feel pain. People who have congenital analgesia have the right to life. Congenital analgesia is a condition where one cannot feel pain.
3. “Fetuses have no past experiences and therefore have no right to life.”
Answer: Probably the best objection of the three but it ultimately fails by looking at someone who has had their memory wiped by Alzheimer’s disease and is currently in a coma. We would say that they have the right to life. Despite the fact that they don’t have past experiences, it is immoral to rip their limbs off. By logical extension, it is immoral to rip the limbs off a fetus who is in a, for all intensive purposes, analogous situation.
People who create a fetuses are responsible for them. They ought not kill them.
Women kill infant children because mostly they just didn't want them. Only LESS then one percent of women who get abortions is because of of rape and even that is terrible. What did the kid do? Its not dead tissue like they all say, its a living breathing thing. Even as a zygote it is alive, said any biologist. Have you ever thought of adoption? Also 99% of them get an abortion just because they don't want to care for it. Have you thought of them? And what about failed abortions, because of them they have birth effects. Why punish the child if you didn't even care to wear a condom?
I cannot conceive how anyone could feel that abortion is moral, just or ethical. There can not be a physical line drawn that states when a fetus becomes a human being. If the fact that as long as it is in the mother's womb, it is part of her body and she can dispose of it at her will, then that would justify the termination of the baby as it was being born, which is a hideous thought.
Murder is illegal and should not be justified because of pressures by society. In the case of rape, it is wrong for one to take something precious from you, just like its wrong to take a precious life from a baby. Abortion is wrong morally, emotionally, and.... In all. God bless.
Abortion does nothing but negatively impact our society, here's proof. 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.

Banning abortion is also immoral because it goes against the right to bodily autonomy. No person should be required to sustain another person without their consent. It's still in the vast majority of cases a very selfish choice. If she can't raise the child put the child up for adoption.
Unless there are complications with a pregnancy which endanger the health of the mother or child, abortion is morally wrong. When women begin using abortion (which should be a last resort) as their go-to form of birth control because they don't want to be responsible, this is just morally repugnant.
