Do you think abortion is murder, or do people have the right to do what they will with whoever is in their bodies?
sort by best latest
There are many rebuttals for that, rape and incest is a very tough decision s not many women can mentally love that child if born. Religion should not be a factor in this decision.
i see your point, life is all about choices and we have to learn to live with the outcome of whatever choices we make.
why? please explain
Because a woman has the right to decide what she wants to do with her own body/life. Simple.
first question is how is her baby her body? 2nd question is if her kid is 2 and is suddenly making her life difficult financially or otherwise, does she have the right to kill it
It's her body that's growing, birthing, nourishing, and taking responsibility for the baby.
I see a massive difference between a fetus and a two year old.
ok. sure her body does all that for the baby, but her body "doing" something is different than "being" hers, dont you think? what is the difference between a fetus and a 2 year old, that makes one ok to kill, and the other not?
A fetus cannot survive without growing inside of the mother.
I do agree with putting a time limit on abortions - it's 20 weeks here, I'm okay with that.
thats true, it cant grow without mom nourishing it and taking care of it. why does its dependency on mom make it ok to kill it? arent babies 20 weeks and older, or even a newborn, completely dependent? is it then ok to kill a newborn on this view?
Yes, a newborn is dependent but it can be dependent on someone other than its mother if the mother doesn't want that responsibility.
Fetuses are viable after 24 weeks, which is why I feel less comfortable with late term abortions.
i think i see. so youre ok with abortion prior to 20 weeks, because the fetus is dependent on mom alone? is that right?
i don't think that's a good reason to dispose of a human life, people can always move from any environment.
Some people may not have money to move to this beautiful environment. (Homeless) Some are drug addicts who know they have no plans in changing there lifestyles. Some are in domestic situation who know that after the baby the will not leave the man.
Hmm i see your point, but isn't that choice a murderous one, well to me it this is it. Mam, do you want to murder this child or not?
As I said, everyone is entitled to think and believe however they choose too. Anyone saying "you're wrong, I'm right" regarding their way of thinking is wrong, no matter what side your on. I respect people who think it's murder and those who don't.
i dont think its a matter of thinking and believing whatever you choose to. It is simple, did you take a life? Yes, you have committed murder. Did you bring a life? Good, you are an angel.
Well this is where opinions come to play again. That's your opinion, but not mine. And that's okay. I think it depends on the individuals way of thinking. Because obviously some don't believe it is murder. Disagreements and opinions help make life.
Very true my friend
but do you think that the disposing of another human being whether it be in you or out is ethical and moral?
I think it is morally wrong to have a child you don't want when the world is full of unwanted and unloved children. So the answer is yes that sometimes an abortion is the right thing to do.
Christin - if a person has a 2 year old and does not want him/ her, is it better they kill it, so it does end up unwanted and unloved?
speer138 Of course you wouldn't kill a child that has already been born. I'm talking about a fetus that cannot survive outside the mother's body. I don't agree with aborting babies past the 12 to 14-week mark unless for medical reasons.
christin - so youre ok with abortion as long as the fetus is unable to survive on its own?
all points are valid, but i think that morality and ethics has a lot to do with it. Many argue that too many unwanted children are born so it is ok to kill a few while they are still in womb. That is a bit harsh for women to think like that
i agree thats harsh. i also agree its a moral issue. i dont see the justification in killing someone because they are unwanted, despite their location.
It must be very hard decision to make for any woman, despite how the pregnancy came to be. I have seen where women were given the option for abortion and decided other wise and brought some of the most adorable children
