Why do people rationalize abortion?

Posted by: 1814Username

When you open an abortion bag, you can literally see body parts. Had that child been left alone, he or she would have been born and had a life. It is that simple. So why do people rationalize abortion?

They rationalize because of convenience. At the end of the day, abortion is about convenience. Bottom line is that people do not want to take responsibility for what they created.

I think all people who are pro-abortion should volunteer to have their life ended. After all that is really what they are advocating, so they should put their money where their mouths are.

They rationalize because of guilt. Many people are connected to abortions and they have to deal with the fact a life is lost. People won't admit the damage done so they rationalize that it is all okay.

They rationalize because of hypocrisy. A man can get decades in prison for fist fights, but a woman who ends a life is not held accountable for anything. It is all hypocrisy.

While I agree with this poll, it feels unfairly biased.

Can you make an unbiased poll? This behavior is discouraged. Go to Fox Forums or Soda Head if you want to discuss one sided partisan opinions.

The poll is about why people rationalize abortion. They see a life ends and people rationalize that it is okay. We literally have men spending DECADES locked in a cell no bigger than a walk in closet for simple assaults. A punch. A kick. Sometimes less than that. But hey, you can crush a skull in a womb and it is okay. It is all hypocrisy.

I also sometimes don't do polls to do polls. I write a poll to make a point and force people to think. Everyone wants to be so politically correct nowadays. Nothing ever really gets talked about. So I break that down, by doing tough polls.

While all of your comments are bias, your last two are not even options.

This is completely biased
1814Username says2014-07-26T19:39:21.9677097-05:00
The options are fine. Do people rationalize because of guilt or convenience or hypocrisy. The last one is really not an option. But it is a point. All those that say abortion is fine ---- give up your own life. After all, that is what abortion is --- termination of a life at a specific point in time. Who says 21 isnt a good point. Or 30 or 17. It is all arbitrary.

1814Username, how about you make ONE unbiased poll? You obviously have no idea what you are talking about. A fetus is NOT a baby, a fetus is NOT a person. It is a lump of cells. By definition, it is a parasite. People are pro-choice because they recognize the FACT that a fetus is not a baby, and they recognize that it is IMMORAL to take away a woman's right over her body. You need to stop using strawmans and stop making biased polls.
1814Username says2014-07-26T19:45:39.6865388-05:00
THE QUESTION IS WHY DO PEOPLE RATIONALIZE. It is not a biased poll. And do not give me that crap that a fetus is just a bunch of cells ... ALL YOU ARE RIGHT NOW IS A BUNCH OF CELLS. Try rationalizing some more. Try again.
1814Username says2014-07-26T19:46:19.9777482-05:00
Are you not a bunch of cells right now? Tell me.
Formerland1 says2014-07-26T19:53:12.7928868-05:00
Oh look its a biased poll 1814usernane must be online.
1814Username says2014-07-26T19:54:20.1393299-05:00
Not biased at all. I asked why do people rationalize abortion. Guilt or convenience or hypocrisy?
Formerland1 says2014-07-26T19:56:59.1688401-05:00
Because sometimes the mothers life is in danger , a fetus is just an organ until its brain begins to work . Can I not get my appendix removed if its going to kill me ? Can I not remove a kidney to save a lives one ?
1814Username says2014-07-26T19:58:23.4884616-05:00
A fetus is just an organ? Really? Try again.
Formerland1 says2014-07-26T20:00:18.4488392-05:00
Why , I doesn't have a brain , it doesn't think , it doesn't feel , it could be a human but it isn't . So if killing a potential human is wrong than should it be wrong for a woman to abstain .
lifemeansevolutionisgood says2014-07-26T20:00:49.2264642-05:00
I am, but I am also, by definition, a person. A fetus is JUST a bunch of cells, not a person. I am sentient, a fetus is not. There are A LOT of differences between a fetus and a person. I know that they have been pointed out to you MANY times, and that you have ignored them every single time. A fetus does not gain sentience until until around 18-22 weeks. A fetus is not a "person", in one of the loosest variations of the word, until then.
1814Username says2014-07-26T20:03:41.2917383-05:00
How do you know a fetus is not sentient? You yourself said a fetus is just a bunch of cells --- which is all you are. A bunch of cells and chemical reactions. The same exact thing as a fetus. Keep trying to rationalize. It is cute how you want to get around killing a life.
Redspectre says2014-07-26T20:08:28.0610234-05:00
If only if i could vote for them all.
1814Username says2014-07-26T20:09:19.4152358-05:00
Yep Red --- that is my point to the entire poll.
lifemeansevolutionisgood says2014-07-26T20:12:52.5071378-05:00
How do I know? Because I know scientists and understand science. Look up what sentience is, then research the peer reviewed journals about sentience in fetuses (you have to pay to get access to the best journals).
lifemeansevolutionisgood says2014-07-26T20:14:40.1762672-05:00
Why am I not surprised that the 2 most biased people that make polls agree with each other?
patrick967 says2014-07-26T20:17:32.5285581-05:00
Can I get a "bias" please?
1814Username says2014-07-26T20:19:04.3051230-05:00
Actually no you don't have to pay... You can go down to any major college library and read them....I also really dont need to look up anything .... It really is simple... A fetus is just another stage of development. Just like a fetus... Infant... Toddler... Child ....Teenager ... Adult ... Senior citizen. Just a stage of development of a human being. People try to be clever to get around the main point that you are ending a life.
1814Username says2014-07-26T20:20:06.6311891-05:00
The poll is not bias. I ask why people RATIONALIZE.
lifemeansevolutionisgood says2014-07-26T20:24:25.9762016-05:00
Well, I was saying pay because most people do not have access to major college libraries. Also, some journals get published online LONG before they get published on paper, some don't even get published on paper. Also, if you have something against ending non-sentient life, then I dare you to go a year without eating any life/dead. Sentient or not. Good luck. A fetus is not a person, it is a pre-person. If you want to say that a pre-person counts as a person, let's make mastur.Bation illegal, let's make it illegal for a woman to have her period. Both waste pre-persons.

80% of your polls are biased
1814Username says2014-07-26T20:30:51.5071874-05:00
Oh so ... A sperm cell and an egg cell is the same as a fetus? Never knew that .... You just recreated science. Bravo. Again, stop rationalizing. Pre-person? What a made up term. Well how old are you? I think we will make your age a pre-person too. It is all arbitrary. Too funny about sperm and eggs being the same as a fetus. Try again.....
1814Username says2014-07-26T20:31:22.4489178-05:00
The poll is not biased. Read it again. I ask why do people RATIONALIZE abortion.
1814Username says2014-07-26T20:32:02.8692951-05:00
The poll is not about why people HAVE abortions. It is why do they RATIONALIZE. Two totally different things. Try again.
lifemeansevolutionisgood says2014-07-26T20:45:45.3483117-05:00
Look at the definitions you moron. A fetus is not a person, I am. Deal with it. All you are doing is showing how stupid and ignorant you really are. I used the term "pre-person" as an easy way of saying that it is not a person YET, but has potential to become one. You cannot just make an age a "pre-person", you have to look at what a person is to define it.
Formerland1 says2014-07-26T21:16:38.1179412-05:00
The thing is if 1814username wasn't bias i would not have a problem with home because we both have our opinions and can discuss them even though they are t the same , but he does not recognize the other viewpoint and I have no respect for that.
SweetTea says2014-07-26T21:29:21.5966232-05:00
I think there are a lot of people who are against abortion, but who equally despise a woman losing the right to make choices about her body. It isn't so much rationalizing as it is a two-fold issue.
SocialistAtheistNutjob says2014-07-26T23:18:14.8160065-05:00
Why do you think there is any rationalization? If somebody feels the need to get an abortion, the kid would grow up feeling unloved anyway. We have too many kids in foster care, so why don't you go adopt some if you're so supportive of children?
youtheotube says2014-07-27T13:02:16.8248267-05:00
This poll is highly biased. Abortion isn't killing anything, the baby isn't even living until it's out of the womb.
1814Username says2014-07-27T16:29:38.5210819-05:00
Why would I respect anyone who wants to kill a life? At the end of the day, if you leave everything alone 99.9% of all pregnancies will be fine. I can live with myself and all the arguments for abortion really do not hold water. Women talk about that it is there body, but what about the baby? Really what it gets down to is that women are ticked off that they have to carry babies. Sorry about that --- it is just the way things are. In life, some things are just what they are. Women also have the ultimate choice about their body. Don't have sex if you don't want a baby. It is not like women don't have a choice. We forget this. Everyone has a choice. That is except for the baby in the womb.

Have you ever eaten ham? Why should I respect you for killing a life?
1814Username says2014-07-28T11:51:46.8956286-05:00
Wow. Your argument has lowered itself to ham. What a freaking joke. Comparing a baby to ham. Pathetic.
1814Username says2014-07-28T11:54:12.3540436-05:00
All pro-choice people should go kill themselves since life is so worthless. But they wont, because it is always someone else's life that is worthless and not their own. They fail to understand that the only reason why they are allowed to spout their irrationality is because someone didn't abort them.
