Abortion isn't just removal of a fetus or termination of a pregnancy. The baby is specifically killed, and the baby's body is aborted.

Why should a woman have to preserve another person's life inside her own personal body?

 

In most instances, she participated in the choice that made that other person have to have their personal life begin within their specific mother's body. The child has no choice.


We can't kill someone
just because:
- We don't know them personally;
- We worry about their future;
- For them to live would be uncomfortable, inconvenient or embarrassing for us, for at least a period of time;
- We want to preserve our own growth opportunities;
- We want other people to have a higher standard of living;
- We don't like their father;
- No one else may know;
- If they don't die it will affect our body shape;
- We're balancing it out by letting
  some other children live;
- A government says it's alright;
- Another person might be angry if we don't.
- We think saving lives should be limited to a particular gender’s responsibility.

"A woman has the right to do what she wants with her body."

A woman has the right is to do what she wants TO her body. But there are things we each can & can't do to other people WITH our bodies, whether with a hand or uterus.

A woman may choose a procedure for herself that involves pain and possible damage to reproductive and other parts of her own body.

But abortion encompasses a choice to hurt someone else's body.

Babies are feeling pain by 20 weeks of age at the latest. Procedures are cruel--the baby's body is torn, crushed, sucked or cut in pieces; starved to death; or salt poisoned & its skin burned off; and then disposed of. Learn the specifics of what the baby experiences. Medical professionals are usually carefully vague.

Should someone's right to do these things to another person be supported?


"It's between a woman and her doctor."

The child is the central patient for an abortion operation, and she or he doesn't have the chance to give the doctor informed consent.

"It's my body."

Abortion laws are about stopping destructive things from being done to someone else's body--not just some part of your own. That distinct, separate body functions for itself. Its heart beats for itself, its blood is different from yours, it feels pain you don't feel. It houses someone who is separate from who you are.
We are innately entitled to choose ways to affect our own bodies. But abortion mostly affects someone else's body that was started by & is supplied by your system--but isn't your body.

Law based on location

Is it logical for the choice to kill your own body be illegal, yet the choice to kill someone else's be legal as long as you have it inside yours?
Should where a person's body is temporarily located determine whether killing them is acceptable?

"It's my baby, so I should get to choose for it."

You are you. Being your mother's baby is not the foundation for your worth nor does it make her the rightful governor of your life.

Likewise, the person who is in your womb is who they are. Their primary identity is independently much more than being 'MY child.'

Each person's existence and rights are founded on and justified by their own personal identity and worth, rather than their parents' views.
