Quoting Tiger Lily ♥:" I am pro-choice, but I'm not obsessive over it. Except.....when I see a stupid ass Facebook post. I ... [snip!] ... abort you?" "Adoption is easy to do..." I could go on. Are there any LOGICAL arguments towards why abortion should be illegal?"
This is going to be long, I am going to state my opinion and I am sure there will be people to disagree but I am not interested in arguing just simply answering your question with my opinion.--which is I believe abortion is wrong and should be illegal. Reasons being-
facts about days after conception-.
18 days- heart is forming
21 days- heart is pumping
28 days- there are budding arms and legs
30 days- brain has multiplied in size ten thousand times.
40 days- brain waves and heartbeat can be detected
42 days- skeleton is formed, brain controls movements of muscles and organs.
45 days- baby weighs 1/30 of an oz but has all internal organs as an adult at various stages of development, baby has lips, tongue, sex organs begin to sprout out from the body.
8 weeks hands and feet are fully formed
9 weeks baby can squint eyes, swallows, frowns.
11 weeks urinates, makes facial expressions.
12 weeks- kicks, turns feet, spreads toes, makes fist, opens mouth.
no matter how early someone has an abortion they can not avoid taking a life.
-People say when a woman is pregnant it isn't a baby its a fetus, did you know fetus is a latin word meaning small child?
-People say the baby isn't a baby its an embryo or a zygote or fetus because its at an earlier stage of development, then are we saying that a toddler is more human than an infant, or an adolescent is more human than a toddler?
-The U.S. Congress voted unanimously to delay capitol punishment of a pregnant woman until after delivery. Even pro-choice people understand that an unborn baby is a separate person, innocent of his/her mothers crime, not just a part of her body. It doesn't make a difference how far along she is.
- A 3 month old is much smaller than a ten year old, far less developed, and just as incapable of taking care of himself as an unborn child, but it wouldn't be okay for someone to kill either of them, the question is not how old or how big or smart or inconvenient the unborn children are but WHO they are, the answer is simple. they are human beings.
-A Chinese zygote placed in an Swedish woman will be born a Chinese infant, not even partially Swedish thus proving his identity is based on his genetic code, not the body in which he resides.Therefore also proving the baby is clearly not a part of the birth mothers body.
-If a woman schedules an abortion for 11 am and on her way to the clinic she is robbed and beaten, she survives and is perfectly health, the attacker can now be prosecuted for murder because he killed the unborn baby, but if the mugging doesn't happen the mother makes it to the clinic an hour later she can now pay a doctor to preform a legal procedure to kill that same baby. To the child whats the difference who kills him or her?
There are four differences between an unborn baby and a newborn.
1.) Size. Does how big you are determine who you are?
2.) Level of development. At twenty are you more human than a ten year old, since a twenty year old is more developed, stronger, and bigger?
3.) Environment. Does being inside a house make you more or less of a person rather than if you were outside? Does being located inside a mothers womb make a child less human?
4) Degree of dependency. Does dependence on another person determine who you are? Does Alzheimer / diabetes/ kidney dialysis dependent adult make less them of a person, obviously not.
