I have come to the conclusion that the abortion debate is something I am not very sure of. I do have a position on this but I am unsure of that position and so at present decided to reserve judgment. So, this is something I am very open to being persuaded by if someone can provide me a strong argument that refutes my current stance.
My current position is as follows:
Now, while some may argue there is no specific point of viability there is a general point which usually is deemed after 24 weeks of gestation. Please note here that I am not talking about life when I mention viability. I am referring to the period at which the baby is now developed enough and capable of living outside the womb. Therefore, it is at this stage they can be deemed capable of personhood. It's at this point and beyond where I think abortion needs a very good reason to happen. And I don't see how just saying it's you're body and you should do what you like with it is sufficient enough reason to warrant an abortion at this stage. I do see medical reasons being good enough though.
I'm not of the position that it is never the woman's position; in most cases, I am pro-choice, but rather that in certain circumstances the choice of action would be better decided by another party.
