Many "Pro-Life" people out there base there argument on the fetus actually being a baby. Lets face this little fact, it is a fetus. It is not a person, yet.
Potential is not current state
Kids have the potential to grow up and become president. However we only have one at a time...
I have the potential to sleep with Mila Kunis.... We shall see what comes of that...
Every priest has the potential to be a pervert, does that make all priests perverts? I plead the 5th on this one...
Abortion is protected by the constitution
|supreme court of Roe v. Wade|
The 14th amendment protects abortion " All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."
Thus is a fetus is not born, it is not yet a citizen... Period
Lets Get realIf a woman or couple are not ready to have a baby, whether it be financially, emotionally, or medically, it is NOT the Government's business! That decision is the woman's and the woman's alone.
There is a study showing due to these factors legalizing abortion actually contributed to reduction in crime. You can read the Frekonomics here. it is called Donohue-Levitt hypothesis
A fetus is a parasite, it sucks nutrients from the host's body. Why do you think women have to eat more and take prenatal vitamins?
Many children are being born out of wedlock and to very young mothers.
90% of young couples do NOT get married.
Broken homes beget broken homes, abortion helps stop that cycle. If a couple can wait until they're ready and have the financial means to support a baby that child will have a better chance to succeed.
I could go on forever, but this has already been decided.I really could, but I don't think I need to. The Supreme Court Decision, Roe v. Wade decided that Abortion is protected under The Constitution.
Seriously, read it for yourself!
