It's not a question of when life begins, but when that life becomes a human being. And honestly, in the time that abortion is legal... it really isn't. It can't think, it can't feel pain, it can't survive outside the body. For all intents and purposes, it is a parasite. Just cause it has the possibility to become a full-on human being, doesn't mean it is one in the womb. So no, it's not "killin babbiez!1!" In fact, 88% of abortions are performed in the first trimester.
Basically, though, I think it should always be an option. The adoption system is overflowing as it is. And a woman should not have to stop her life to be a parent - a child should never be a punishment. Most of the time, they couldn't support a child financially, or it would interfere with work or school. And if abortions were illegal, people would NOT stop getting abortions. They would just turn to illegal, very dangerous means. Injury or even death is very common from back alley abortions.
And a lot of people say that women shouldn't have sex if they don't want kids, shouldn't have sex without protection, shouldn't use abortion as birth control. The first point is very untrue, it basically treats a woman as some kind of incubator, saying that she can't have sex for pleasure, just poppin out babies. Consenting to sex doesn't mean consenting to having kids. The second and third points are valid. But guess what? Condoms break, pills fail, rapes happen...accidents happen, basically. And yeah, some people are stupid enough not to use protection, but honestly, they have the same rights as anyone else to get abortions. Would you want anyone that irresponsible raising kids anyway? As for the third point, I agree. But the thing is - that using abortion as birth control is a myth. Why would anyone? It's costly and potentially painful. The vast majority of women who get abortions - 82% get no more than 2, which is hardly "birth control".
Mostly, the government should not control a woman's body. And yes, it is the woman's body, the fetus couldn't survive on its own outside of it.
So yeah, no lame propaganda videos will change my mind.0
