I totally agree with you. Laws absolutely should have a foundation in what is deemed as good. But it becomes more complicated after that. And the laws regarding abortion will never have the approval of the entire population. That is a fact. That is also why I have not said that your view on abortion is wrong. It is due to a different perspective of the morality of the act. The same goes for my view. My point to you is simply that your argument doesn’t even take into account the limits on a woman’s right to choose. That is why you can’t
I do not agree with women who use abortion as a form of birth control but only insofar as I believe it is grossly irresponsible. Not to mention the effects it has on the woman if the time comes that she wants to have children. Studies have shown that multiple abortions can actually program the body to miscarriage at a certain stage of pregnancy, making it exponentially more difficult to carry a baby to term. If the woman makes it to a stage of viability and goes into premature labor, it could have serious repercussions on the health of the child. I can’t understand why someone would set themselves up for that rather than just using a regular form of birth control.
The majority of religious organizations do not advocate abortion but do feel that it is necessary in situations where the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest or when the mother’s life is at risk. Some even go further as to when there are medically deemed fatal defects. The one exception to this is the catholic church which deems it as murder at any stage for any reason. To me that just seems unreasonable and unrealistic. But even the other viewpoints can be problematic. Anyone who can’t see that doesn’t live in the real world.
