I understand where you are coming from, but I don't think eliminating it completely is a good thing either. Should only be available under very specific circumstances, like if the mother could die trying to give birth as one example. That should be the mother's choice.

There's actually a moral tenant in place in scenarios like those. Institutions like the Catholic Church (to which I belong) understand that some medical procedures undertaken when the mother could die run the risk of killing an unborn child. However, if killing the child is not the goal of the procedure, but rather is a distinct possibility just because it's a high-risk operation needed to save them, then it's not murder if the child dies. It's a fine, but important, distinction.

This is true, I forgot about that detail. I also agree with the first guy. "Pro-choice" has been abused too much.

I just don't see how destroying an organism with its own unique human DNA isn't murdering a human...this is before it has a heartbeat mind you...its life is just as important as the mothers.

'But how can you force them to live with something that was forced upon them?' (The rape and incest arguments all go like that.) It's a traumatic experience that no one should endure. I agree. But how is doubling the evil by killing the result any better? Far better that the child is carried and put into foster care (that system needs some serious help) than to murder it for expediency.

'But the child will live in misery because it's deformed!' Killing it because it doesn't meet your standards of an 'acceptable human' is highly disturbing and disregards everyone's basic right to life. We don't know what their future will be. Even if their life will be cut short naturally we have no right to declare ourselves gods and 'mercifully' kill them.

One day the world will look back on abortion as the darkest genocide in history...the U.S alone has killed ten times more innocent human beings than died under Hitler. :(

Or doubling the evil by forcing a woman to carry a life-long reminder of one of if not the worst day of her life? If she wants to have the child great. But how can you force a woman to carry what she might see as the spawn of the devil? And risk her committing suicide, abusing or abandoning the child? So many bad possibilities there. It's easy to sit here and pass judgement but try to put yourself in her shoes.

If the women doesn't want the baby, have her put it up for adoption! See, abortion isn't the only answer you can use!

Exactly.

How is murdering a human being solving that problem? I fully understand the situation and your viewpoint though. Right now we don't have the emotional and foster support/care facilities in place to implement that policy. Most people need to seek help from private charities and religious groups. That is something that needs to be fixed. Forcing her to pay for associated financial costs and endure the torment alone would be almost as bad as aborting the baby.

For starters, rape and incest represents only 1% of all reasons why people get abortions. So we should never pretend that taking this away somehow casts this huge burden on the vast majority of people getting abortions. In other words, 99% of the time, it was 100% preventable.

Two, evil is evil, whether or not you had evil done to you. Just because that terrible thing happened, does not mean that you should be allowed to kill a life. That is some ancient blood revenge way of thinking. So before we put ourselves in "her shoes," we need to actually understand where the boundaries should be.

Three, life has to be sacred and protected or else society goes off the rails. In fact, I challenge you, name a time and place in history where human life was devalued and we became arbiters about who should live and who shouldn't, and show me how it did not lead to some of the craziest atrocities in human history.

Exactly. When we decide who deserves to live and who dies, especially because they 'weren't meant to happen' or 'are deformed' we've become no better than the Nazis and similar ilk.
