These Pro-Abortion Stances Need More Thought
Women Should Have Rights
Yes, women should have rights. Of course they should. Let me explain...They should have the right to:
- Hold public office
- Receive equal pay
- Get an education
- Own property
- Bare arms
- Be free from violence
(I could go on and on, but I think that you got the point.)
Murdering an innocent, defenseless baby is not a right.
What If She Was Raped?
Rape is a horrible thing (don't get me wrong), but does that justify brutally murdering a child? Do two wrongs somehow make a right? The child wasn't asked to be created. It didn't do anything wrong. It's completely innocent. Killing a baby doesn't undo rape. Abortion just makes the victim the parent of a dead child.
"It's My Body"
Does your body have four legs, four arms, two hearts, two brains, and twenty fingers? I understand that the baby is indeed in your body (I'll give you that), but the fetus is not "your body." It has it's own.
When does the fetus become a human being?
This question is tricky because the answer drastically changes depending on who you ask.
- Is it when the heart starts beating (about 22 days after conception)?
- How about when fingers form (approximately 6 weeks after conception)?
- It's certainly a baby after brain activity, right (usually around 40-43 days)?
Abortion is Legal
Just because something's legal, doesn't make it right. Is it okay for a husband to rape his wife? Because it was legal in some states until 1993. How about forced sterilization of the mentally ill? That was a common practice in the state of Indiana in 1907. What about slavery and segregation?
At the end of the day, abortion is wrong. There is no excuse for killing a baby.
