Should all people be pro-choice?Posted by: SegBeg
I'm pro-life so I don't believe in abortion, however I know people have different views and I respect that, but what I don't respect is when people say you should follow THEIR agenda- follow as THEY see fit when in reality their way could be the wrong way. What do you think?
Being pro-choice means you have 2 options; to abort or not abort. Let's remember that there doesn't seem to be any punishment or shaming of the men that help to impregnate the women. Sometimes the pill isn't always 99% effective, especially when used with other medications. And having one's tubes tied doesn't always prevent a pregnancy either. I think women should have a choice since men have a choice whether or not they want to stick around.
If you aren't ready for a baby or conceived from rape or a teenage pregnancy and you don't want the baby then don't have it. You should be allowed to choose as a basic human right. It isn't a question.
Pro-choice is an intelligent position. Pro-life is an emotional position. The fact is, humans do not matter, so reacting to the "murder" of a fetus is foolish and naive. However, weighing factors and then making an informed, conscious decision is intellectually correct.
No. Not all people should be pro-choice. I get that pro-choicers feel for the woman, but pro-lifers do as well. However, people have many different reasons for being pro-life rather than pro choice. For example you expect a person whose mother tried to abort them to be pro-choice? I wouldn't. I mean if they chose to be that way that's a different story but most of the time they end up being pro-life. Anyway, no I do not believe everyone should be pro-choice.
I don't have the "right to chose" if someone else lives...
Murder of innocents is not a choice.
Because life is at conception. there has been no scientific proof of any kind stating that a baby is not actual life when it is conceived. even if the situation involves rape, a baby should not be held responsible, the perpetrator should. also people who are pro choice are contradicting themselves. liberals are totally cool calling it double homicide when a pregnant woman is murdered, but its for really life in the womb when a woman wants an abortion.
When we as a society begin to redefine what is a human and what is not we are no better then those who called blacks non-humans in slave era United States. Or those in Nazi Germany defining Jews as non-human. Defining who is a human and who is not is a slippery slope that we as a society should not go down. A fetus has just as many rights as you or I. A fetus is valuable and pro-lifers seem to think they can get rid of that value just by saying the mother doesn't want it.
Everyone has a right to their own opinion. Not everyone will or should agree with you. The right to life overrides any right to bodily autonomy.
No. Abortion should be the only option for the dead fetus, rape victim and pregnancy by incest. As for the pro-choice community, you should encourage the self-responsibility in people to take the methods to prevent the pregnancy.
Child's right to live outweighs the mother's choice to her body.
No! That would be oppressive in a way. But all people should be forced to be egalitarian. I wouldn't mind that.
I think I don't like the word "should" in questions without stated goals in mind. It leaves the question open to interpretation. When that happens the answers are more a reflection of the person answering than the question.
Absolutely not! Children have the right to live. If you truly support women's rights, then stop aborting unborn girls! (Not saying we should abort boys, but feminists are ironic when they support abortion based on gender, especially when you are aborting a girl because of her gender.)
Life beings when the sperm fertilizes the egg. That's a simple, scientific fact. Just because the baby inside the womb is smaller than the mother doesn't give you the right to kill it. The pro-choice movement is very dangerous, what with its "women's rights" theme to mask the true horror of abortion.
I'm pro-choice so I believe that you should do as you choose. Being pro-life is your choice and I respect that, but no one should be forced to believe in something they don't want to believe in.
No. I personally feel that it's unfair of us to treat the woman's life as somehow more important than the baby's. No life is insignificant, and I don't think it's fair to kill a life to make someone else's life a bit more convenient.
