Look, it's a "glob of cells"
I say we continue allowing abortion to be legal, on the stipulation that every expecting mother has to get an ultrasound so that she can see exactly what they are choosing.
People choose to get knocked up. They choose not to use protection, which can be obtained for free, or the pill, which can be obtained for free.
Instead of doing that, they get pregnant and expect the taxpayer to pay for their murder.

I have a new idea:
Don't get pregnant.
It seriously isn't that difficult to avoid pregnancy. It requires self control in situations, but you can still have sex.
1. Have the female use birth control consistently as it should be used.
2. If she misses a dose, use a condom or don't have sex.
3. If she is not using birth control, use a condom and be sure to pull out during climax as an extra preventative measure.
Seriously. Before I became a Christian and soon after committed myself to abstinence before marriage, I had a ton of sex throughout high school and college. When a girlfriend was on birth control, I didn't even use a condom or pull out, and there was never an issue. If they missed a dose, you skip sex or use a condom.
Am I sterile or is everyone else just totally irresponsible and not using protection at all/like it's supposed to be used?!
I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
You want your choice? How about CHOOSE to take some personal responsibility and skip the unwanted pregnancy all together.
We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.

FWIW, the 18 years later scenario has everything to do with inherent innocence. The flaw in the thought experiment is that an adult is who committed a crime that is punishable by death, usually by incurring the death of another person.
A baby? Just inconvenient really

Expect technology to eventually solve the death rate issue, though how long that'll take is up for debate, once death rate collapses birth rate must eventually by obligation collapse due to the laws of physics.
The problem, according to Kurzgesagt, is that only the galaxies in the local group are gravitationally bound to us. Those galaxies elsewhere in the observable universe are just getting farther away as the universe expands, and the universe expands incredibly fast thanks to the mysterious nature of dark energy. So, if you tried to fly a very fast space ship to the next local group, you’d just never get there. You’d be lost forever in empty space.-source
