I’m pro-choice, and I hate abortion.
I know if we try to outlaw abortion we’re gonna have a lot of dangerous black market and back alleyway abortions instead of a nice sterile room.

Interesting picture! I like the concept.

But I fully support abortion, it's a women's body and her choice. Illegalisation of abortion is like dragging womens rights back to the dark ages. I feel like as oppose to running around trying to stop abortion, better to handle the root of the problem, unwanted pregnancy's, teen pregnancy's, rape. Deal with such issues and abortion would have a much smaller role in our society's, which would be better for the individual women.

I guess stepping on a tadpole or froglet constitutes murder as well

A non sentient never will be sentient animal? A naby and a tadpole are two completely different creatures. One grows up to live a life in the human world and the other is... well just like any other animal. Nothing is special about tadpoles or froglets. They aren't even sentient.

Nah! Humans are animals and they're a dime a dozen. They're nothing at all that special. Hey, if you believe every embryo that grows into a human can become the best basketball player, painter, singer, toilet cleaner or whatever else it wants to be, you're more than welcome to spend all your energy, time and money to help anyone of them realize its dream. More power to ya, but you do understand that no other persons, living or dead, are obligated to assist you or even share or adhere to your beliefs, worldviews, values and priorities.

What's a "naby"? Sentience? - You must be watching too many Star Trek shows.

Ya, this Redrover boy accused me of supporting genocide, but he's the one who listed nuclear bombs as a great human achievement in his reply.

If he numbers himself among those morons who'd paste those "Peace through mightier arms" bumper sticker types, then he's a lost cause. You can't take any goddamn hypocrite seriously if he claims he values human life, but he supports wars to "defend our freedoms" and "spread democracy". The collateral damage in human life isn't worth the sacrifice. No country, and the USA in particular, has the moral fortitude to be the World Policeman.

Just wait for some bozo to get all worked up and patriotic over this.Clock

Humans are proven smarter than animals. See? Special. Trying to argue otherwise is stupid, since we all know that animals can't build working space ships and nuclear bombs. I'm not saying anything about humans being more special than other humans, so whatever you were talking is just irrelevant. Like seriously, what do you think I'm saying? I am actually curious.

Also, how is a embryo not a human. They have 46 chromosomes and so therefore a human, beginning at fertlization aka the second egg and sperm combine.
Reply
:iconparaceratherium:
Nope. Not special. And what's so great about nuclear bombs anyways?

Actually my earlier statement is very relevant. You completely missed the point about one human being more special than another in your response. Anti-abortionists cherish embryos, because they believe each has a potential to be something great. An aborted embryo that could have been a star football player or rocket scientist or even a janitor can be easily replaced by another embryo with equal potential. If an embryo has such great potential, then by extension anyone who's interested in meeting its goal should support it to the very end. Otherwise, any pro-"lifer"'s concern over a cluster of cells is just plain bullshit.

And the fundamental message from my first response: No one person is obligated to conform to your worldviews and priorities. No one needs to be persuaded to change their creed and values, just because you felt yours are "correct" or the "standard" by which others must live by. That mentality is a very dangerous premise. Hitler, Stalin and Mao tried and look what happened. Your standards are not our standards. Your creed is not our creed. The only problem is anti-abortionists like yourself can't agree to disagree. If they had the power to force everyone to live the way they want, they would. And to think they're all about individual freedoms since the American ones tend to be GOP populist buffoons.

If you felt you can venture to express your opinions, then be prepared to accept the counter opinions. A difference in opinion, values and priorities is all a part of diversity. If you don't like some people's lifestyles or choices, then you're going to have to swallow it and live with it. You can just go hang out with people who think like you while the rest of us can keep on progressing.

By your criteria on what's human, people born with chromosomal abnormalities, like Down's Syndrome, aren't human. These animals must be human then, because they have 46 chromosomes too:
Muntjac
Black Rat
European Hare
Nilgai
Kirk's Dik Dik
Grey Vole
Large Bentwing Bat
Bolivian Tuco-Tuco
Grevy's Zebra
Red Titi
Miriam's Ground Squirrel
Southern Short-Tailed Shrew
Mountain Beaver
Beach Vole
Red uakari
Emperor and red-handed tamarin
Common marmoset
Lion tamarins
Meadow vole
"Buff-bellied rat (Rattus flavipectus)"
Ethiopian narrow-headed rat
Hazel dormouse
New England cottontail
Big-eared bat
Bamboo bat
Okapi

And don't just stop at chromosomes. Humans shed their DNA fragments daily from their hair, skin, poop and piss, etc. Maybe we should save all those genetic fragments, because they came from humans so they must be human too. Let's ban vacuum cleaners, soap, etc.

There is a difference between a clump of cells,
and a human baby. Destroying developing cells is not a crime.
Killing an already born baby is. No mater what the case is, its none of our business.

I am making a rather obvious analogy between a developing baby in the womb and a sleeping adult, to illustrate the notion that right to life is not predicated on consciousness in the moment, but on potential to obtain / recover consciousness.

Society presumes the right to tell people not to kill other people, all the time...

Rape victims comprise less than 1% of the women who have abortions.
www.nytimes.com/1989/10/13/us/…

So that is a bit of a red-herring argument in the vast majority of cases. Also, I think the guilt of knowing you had your own potential child murdered would be a worse thing to carry and a harder thing to get over than the trauma of rape, in and of itself.

It's wrong because it's literally killing. You can make it sound how you want but it IS killing something with a heartbeat.

Then don't get an abortion. Oh wait..

You'll never be at peace unless you accept people as they are. Learn to accept it because there are women who NEED abortions. It's medically necessary for some people. Not everyone gets abortions because they don't want a child.

I will never be at peace as long as women have the right to kill their own children whenever they like.

Well it's never going to stop happening so the best you can do is worry about yourself and mind your own business. Routine Infant Circumcision is a way bigger issue than abortion. Abortion isn't even an issue.. I myself wouldn't get an abortion, but it shouldn't be used as a form of birth control. If it's medically necessary it's okay. Some women need abortions, some don't. Get over it.
