FaramirK Posted May 19, 2005 Share Posted May 19, 2005 "Very Good Argument", Darth Sirius? Sadly not... Then I grew up. Many people more mature than you hold abortion to be wrong. Do not create the false premise that believing abortion is wrong denotes immaturity. I realized that doing what is right is not always doing what is popular. That is true, but if you are suggesting that being opposed to abortion is popular, you are again wrong. There is a debate longstanding of when it is murder and when it is not. I can accept the definition of when the fetus is able to live on it's own outside the womb. Babies cannot survive on their own - even after they are outside the womb, unlike many animals. Your point is redundant. Statement: "I can accept the definition of when the fetus is able to live on it's own outside the womb." Your logic suggests that a human being is only able to be murdered if it can take care of itself...try and use that in a court of law...see what happens. Maybe you just left out an or? A) Many of you have written about abortion being contraception. Abortion is painful. Abortion is mentally exhausting. Abortion is nauseating. Why don't you go to a clinic. Why don't you see a woman come out in tears, barely able to walk clutching her stomach from the pain and the mental anguish of emptiness. And preach some more about the ease in which people have this procedure done. B) It is easier to judge the actions of others because as long as there are these child murdering monsters out there you feel better about who you are. Point the finger and avoid the mirror. C) I also believe that our world is overpopulated, we have hunger problems, health care problems, homeless problems, unemployment, and poverty. A) Your description of abortion is accurate. Much better to have the child and either raise it or put it up for adoption. B) Like you are judging anyone who disagrees with you as Immature, Arrogant Self-absorbed villans? C) Abortion is not the answer for any of the social ills you mentioned. Sure from your personal computer that your parents could afford (or for about 10% of you you bought yourself). Sure you can preach about how some people have managed to struggle as a single mother and put themselves through school ... but you know, its one thing to claim a mother's hardships are her own fault, it is another to force an unwanted life to be birthed into the world and live in a state of misery, loneliness, and discontent. 90% of the people on this forum use compters they didn't pay for? How did you come upon this statistic? Or are you simply using sensasional and emotive slander in an attempt to sound like you control the moral high-ground? The hardships of single motherhood say two things...First: Beware of not respecting the possible outcome of careless, casual sex. Second: Choose who your sexual partners wisely, because many men will leave you high and dry if you happen to get pregnant. I don't feel abortion is great, but it is a legal option and better than many alternatives. I don't want twelve year olds raising children ... the ones being raised by twenty year olds are bad enough. There are better option, but is it morally wrong to do the legal thing, for the right reasons? ... don't judge the choices another makes because from your personal paradise life is easy. Bold Text: Who does? More sensational, irrational crowd-playing. To me, the moral corruption is the ability to spit on others without putting yourself in their shoes. Like condeming anyone and everyone who is against abortion as immature Nazi's? And no, don't come back and say "but Susy Q from down the street was able to ... " no. that doesn't count because Susy Q wasn't in everyone elses shoes. The ability to make a choice on what you think is best for you in your current situation, that is the gift and curse of humanity. Everyone has darkness in there path somewhere. I have never known a person who hasn't done something they weren't proud of. Compare your highlighted statement with something you said above: your personal paradise life I'm sorry, but I find your arguments overly hostile and flawed.
