abortion debate - wiki

The abortion debate is the ongoing controversy surrounding the moral and legal status of induced abortion. The sides involved in the debate are the self-described "pro-choice" movement (emphasizing the right of women to decide whether to terminate a pregnancy) and the self-described "pro-life" movement (emphasizing the right of the embryo or fetus to gestate to term and be born). Both terms are considered loaded in mainstream media, where terms such as "abortion rights" or "anti-abortion" are generally preferred. Each movement has, with varying results, sought to influence public opinion and to attain legal support for its position, with small numbers of anti-abortion advocates sometimes using violence.

For many people, abortion is essentially a moral issue, concerning the commencement of human personhood, the rights of the fetus, and a woman's rights over her own body. The debate has become a political and legal issue in some countries with anti-abortion campaigners seeking to enact, maintain and expand anti-abortion laws, while abortion rights campaigners seeking the repeal or easing of such laws while expanding access to abortion. Abortion laws vary considerably between jurisdictions, ranging from outright prohibition of the procedure to public funding of abortion. Availability of safe abortion also varies across the world.

  • Fundamentally, right to choose is a key right for women in this country. 
    That is a personal decision and should be made by each person, not government.
  • Abortion is the right of women. ProChoice is my vote.
    as per top 3 proCon arguments:
    The US Supreme Court has declared abortion to be a "fundamental right" guaranteed by the US Constitution

    Reproductive choice empowers women by giving them control over their own bodies.

    Personhood begins after a fetus becomes "viable" (able to survive outside the womb) or after birth, not at conception.

    The key is "viable", and the major argument for ProLife side is that viable starts as early as start of pregnancy.  Then the argument can be stretched that use of contraceptives and birth control is also murder.  The world we live in is not black and white, We Need to draw a line at some level of where life begins that is considered human.  Some extremist even argue that they want to give chimps human rights and taking that to Supreme Court.
    Everyone should have a right where they are comfortable drawing the line of life.

    It's kind of fun to do the impossible
