Yes, abortion is killing a living human being.
No, abortion is not killing a living human being.
Infanticide is illegal, why is abortion legal?
Cause I said so.
Dont deny someone the right to live
It's alive inside... It moves and it is still living.. Its from a human sperm and egg.. What else could it be? A animal??
The unborn are human too. It is wrong to say its the "woman's right" to kill an innocent human. It was the woman's choice to have sex (except in rape) and she should take responsibility for it. In the case of rape, while obviously a horrible act, it is not the woman's fault, but it is also not the child's fault either. The rapist is the one who should be punished, not the child.
I just read a comment from discomfiting and one more person which went along the lines of "a foetus isn't alive until it's born". Well I have a question for you "Isn't that contradictory to your own existence? I mean how can something that had no life come to life when skin was cut open. What was kicking in your womb, what had heartbeats in your womb, how does dead skin and flesh have life when skin is cut open?" Future voters please think carefully before consenting to the mindless murder of living human beings in their most crucial and vulnerable state without the backup of evidence. Those who consent to abortion when the women and child's life would definitely be lost, notice that you're voting "No, abortion is not killing of a human being." not "No, abortion is allowed when two lives are in danger." And also even if the child might be unable to live properly, why won't you take the chance to let the child live -properly or not. Abortion that would has 0% chance of mother and/or child survival should be agreed to anything else is pure,unadulterated murder. Note: I believe that the child is alive from the moment of conception (sperm meets egg).
If I can have abortion I can take out a rifle and shoot someone for example
Murder is illegal by definition. If I received a dollar for everytime I said this, I would retire immediately.
Murder is the illegal killing of someone. Abortion is legal, therefore, the word murder is misplaced, charged, rhetoric.
I'm pretty sure I explained by it isn't murder already. Murder is the unlawful killing of a person. Abortion is the termination of a fetus. So even if you believe a fetus is a person (which it's not), it's still legal which contradiction the entire definition of a murder being unlawful which abortion being lawful.
not that I really care..
A fetus is not alive. You are not alive until you are born
If abortion is murder, is it also murder to refuse to provide a pregnant woman who will not or probably not survive childbirth with an abortion? If the woman dies while giving birth, there is a chance her child will die as well, thus ending TWO lives when at least one could have been saved. On another note, if a woman becomes pregnant with a child and there is significant evidence to support the claim that the child will develop severe health issues that would cause it extreme pain or the inability to live life properly, would the better choice be to spare the child the suffering it will face when it is more aware and fully developed (not a fetus anymore)?
A fetus is dependent on its mother's body, but that does not change the fact the woman's body still belongs to her an no one else. Why would you want more babies to born to mothers who don't want them? Why would you want more women to have to seek dangerous ways of eliminating their pregnancies? And for the religious people: why would god send a soul into a fetus that he knew would only be aborted?
The young fetus has not experience literally anything of the outside world and on top of this it isn't even a sentient being. It is basically a vegetable. You are not taking away its life as it never had one to start with. Even if you think it is killing, sometimes it is really necessary. E.g. if the baby will be severely handicapped/the woman was raped/ it could cause harm to the woman.
I mean if you don't want the baby, It's better to get it out before it gets born and becomes alive. Because someone needs to take care of the baby once it's born, And a person that doesn't want a baby is less likely to want to care for it and more likely to want to toss it in the trass. Tossing a baby in the trash and refusing to care for it after it's alive is considered abuse.
