I am a firm Pro-Life person, but I am also very open minded. I want to see if you guys can convince me it should remain legal and why it shouldn't be illegal.
Here are some points you guys have to refute and rebut:
1. The pro-choice argument is the same as Pro-Slavery, You are on my plantation/are in my body, so therefore I have the right to decide whether to give you "personhood" or not and therefore I have the right whether to kill you or not. Its all about convenience. Your useful to me so your not a person. Your not wanted right now so your not a person. I can be very annoying sometimes making unwanted, does that make me "Not a person"
2. What determines personhood? Does size, level of development, environment, or degree of dependency determine if your a person or not? Your a person for moment of conception
3. I hear a lot of "It costs sooo much money". Say we have a pregnant mother and toddler would it be right to kill the toddler because most certainly the toddler costs more money to maintain so when she kills it she would actually be saving money when she has the baby.
4.How is something a "Potential life"? YOUR EITHER ALIVE OR YOUR NOT. YOU CAN'T BE "POTENTIALLY DEAD" IF THAT IS THE CASE THEN WE ALL, FROM MOMENT OF BIRTH, ARE "POTENTIALLY DEAD". (Yes, I know its caps. Its intentionally to highlight the stupidity of "Potentially alive")
5. I hear alot about harmful homes, diseases,etc "Don't make them suffer" My question: Should we kill a child with down to prevent suffering later in life or kill a 5 yr old with abusive parents because he grows up in a harmful household?
Don't bring up any organizations like the UN because I know their stance and I don't agree with it.
Also don't try with rape/incest stuff because, 1, they are not the same. Tncest can be consensual. And 2, rape abortion cases make up less than 1% of total abortions, don't try to take a very small marginal number and blow it up to the atmosphere.
If you are going to try with the "Health of the mother" stuff define it. I totally agree if the mother's life is in HIGH risk of jeopardy but you got to name and explain.
Have fun trying to persuade me, I am open minded but I am very well informed and if I can counter your argument not only factually but morally and ethically as well then... You guys need work.
