speaking in terms of legislation, no, abortion is not a right. nor will it be. however, i believe having the choice and having access to safe abortion options should be a right in modern countries. bodily autonomy is a whole different argument, but there are cases where an abortion is a necessary medical operation to save a life. we have to have the right to any and all potentially life saving medical options. how would you feel if you were in horrible dental pain and you were told root canals are a privilege not a right? whichever it is, it still needs to be done, and no hypothetical ethical or theological argument can be made against the fact that the procedure needs to be done.

well our adoption system is going to do great under the flood of new babies.

do you plan to add additional funding to our debt? the left is if abortion is banned. are you willing to pay the price of your decision? welfare will be chump change.

or not have children. and considering the way or economy is going soon a lot of people should be banned from having children.

will procreation become another right reserved to the 1%?

a fetus is not a human life. it is a cluster of cells that might one day be a human life.

and abortion itself is not a right. but control over one's own body is. a woman has the right to control her own body. therefore she she has a right to kill a cluster of cells growing inside her if she chooses to.

Eliminating human lives is unjustifiable and you should responsible for diminish other people's right to live.....

Ya true... but if the parents think that they are incapable of funding the growth of a child, what then? Also.. what if it is a case of a student or a single mom? Being able to nurture and grow that child with love and care is very important.. even if given birth, the child will be as good as dead. what do you think?

and abortion is not a right, the right to choose is the right as per the courts. not the abortion itself but the medical decision. this is because if abortion is banned they will simply do back alley or self administered abortions which are highly dangerous to both mother and child.

abortion is bad in theory, however considering our adoption system pretty much breeds mental illness and suicidal tendencies, maybe we need to fix it before we throw a tsunami of more unwanted children into it.

after that, I will join the pro life movement, until then I am strongly pro choice because of that reason.

some lives are not worth living (the suicide rates are a good indicator of that)

The only difference between preventing a person from living and killing a person is that one of them has already had a chance to be alive. Why wouldn't it be allowed the privilege to COME to existence by another person when it's illegal for someone to be TAKEN from existence by another person? Either way, even thought it is not a person, and it is underdeveloped, it is living. A dog or cat is not a person, but it's unacceptable to go around murdering them.

you're preventing a cluster of cells from becoming a person. preventing a person from existing is not the same thing as killing a person. and it isn't limiting it to death if it was never really alive in the first place. i dont think it should be used frequently as birth control, but preventing life is not the same thing as killing.

You are denying a being the ability to become a person. You are limiting them only to death, and nothing more. Why is that morally correct?

3 years, 5 months ago

you don't have the right to deny a person their life. since a fetus is not a person and therefore does not have rights, you are not denying a person their life.

3 years, 5 months ago

If women have the right to their body, then why do we have the right to deny a fetus to grow one? Why do we deserve to deny someone the right to live?

so legal right to health care, legal right to all the things that america provides for us in need.

no. that is putting an illegal substance into your body. it's the illegal substance that is the problem. abortion is not a drug. it is a medical procedure.

3 years, 8 months ago

historybuff does a person also have the legal right to do hard, illegal drugs? that is controlling ones body.

3 years, 8 months ago

how do you figure? a person has a legal right to control their own body. that means that an abortion is a legal right.
