So, you believe that government should never tell someone if murder is wrong or not? If science determines life begins at a certain point, we should not say it is wrong to take that life? Would you say it would be okay that a 1 day year old be terminated if the mother chose not to keep the baby? Would you say that if it was philosophically decided that a certain group of people were a burden on society, that society should be able to get rid of those people?
The issue is whether the baby in the belly is a person. If so, it is murder to have an abortion.
I believe scientifically it is logical to conclude that life begins at conception... that baby is a human. Murder is the taking of an innocent human life. Therefore, it is murder. If we should not make laws outlawing murder then where would you draw the line? Why?
I guess I threw myself into this situation so I will defend my words. I said I myself would NEVER have an abortion! For us to tell someone what to do with their own bodies is beyond it. Its just like telling someone they can not do drugs. They do it anyway dont they. I am against drugs as well but what poeple decide to do is what they are going to do. And laws wont help it, they will only go into closets to do it there. I never once said I believed in abortion, I said I believe in the choices people have.
It is irrational to say that since people will do something we should keep it legal. People will murder but we should not keep it legal. We should make it illegal and understand people will break the law.
Do you think the taking of a life should ever be left up to the choice of any person? At what age?
