I'm trying to figure this one out. I'm a Conservative guy when it comes to economics but fairly liberal when it comes to social issues but I just
can't see the logic in a womans right to choose. Why is it a womans right to choose life or death for another human being?
I know people have convinced themselves that a baby in the wound isn't human but again, that's just silly. The process of life begins at conception.
When that process is intentionally cut off that's murder whether it's cut off at 2 months after conception or at age 30.
I think there should be exceptions for rape, incest and the life of the mother but those make up a small percentage of cases.
Here's some statistics.
In 2008, approximately 1.21 million abortions took place in the U.S., down from an estimated 1.29 million in 2002, 1.31 million in 2000 and 1.36
million in 1996. From 1973 through 2008, nearly 50 million legal abortions have occurred in the U.S. (AGI).
On average, women give at least 3 reasons for choosing abortion: 3/4 say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or other
responsibilities; about 3/4 say they cannot afford a child; and 1/2 say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their
husband or partner (AGI).
Only 12% of women included a physical problem with their health among reasons for having an abortion (NAF).
One per cent (of aborting women) reported that they were the survivors of rape (NAF).
So with just rape, incest and the life of the mother, that would be around 6,500,000 abortions and you would save 43,500,000 lives.
Maybe I'm wrong though. Maybe abortion isn't murder but how can you intentionally cut off the process of life and it not be murder whether it's a
30 year old or a baby 2 months after conception?
