Those who advocate abortion have already been born. Agree or Disagree?

I agree we've been born but that argument is ridiculous.

I take issue with this question, primarily the "advocate abortion" portion. Pro-choice and pro-abortion are not the same thing.

Terrible question.

This is the strangest, most biased question I have seen on SoH.

No one advocates abortion - they advocate choice

Well obviously. I'm not really getting the point of this question...Except maybe trying to get pro-choice people to feel bad?

Why is it that in an ideal conservative world, a young pregnant woman would be forced to have her baby, and then she wouldn't receive a single penny of government aid to help care for said baby?

Why is it that conservatives consistently fail to realize that Roe v. Wade was 40 years ago? Abortion is never going to be made illegal again, so stop trying. It's just plain sad at this point.

By whose standards? The "men can tell women what to do with their bodies" argument is the one that is old and ineffective. Welcome to the 21st century, where women have a choice!

It seems like conservatives care so much about unborn babies, and then when the babies are born they couldn't give a flying f@ck about them. That's so hypocritical it hurts to think about it.

No, you're somewhere in between where you think women should have a say only sometimes when you think it's okay. Women should ALWAYS have a say regarding their own bodies. As should men.

There is no such thing as pro-abortion.

Pro-choice is the word you are looking for. That does not mean one advocates abortion, but one who feels it is right to let others make their own choices.

First question I have actually got angry while reading. Please don't use your ability to ask questions to present biased statements for no reason. Idk if you were trying to prove something but I don't see any benefit in this.

So I'm assuming you only engage in procreative sex because anything else is "terminating potential life."

It has significance if it's progress. Women's right to vote didn't go away, did it? So why should the right to choose?

Yeah and slavery was legal for 70+ years, women couldn't vote for 130 years, and Jim Crow was the law for about 100 years. All of which were changed. The amount of time a law is on the books has no significance whatsoever.

Of course! The unborn would vote for banning abortion if they could since it's their life that could be ending.

But a woman is involved pretty heavily in the whole "giving birth" thing that I've been hearing so much about lately. I don't think that a woman should ever be forced to go through that if they don't want to. It seems well painful, doesn't it?

Exactly. They complain about a woman wanting an abortion because the life of the baby is so important, so instead she gives birth, and like she already knew, she is unable to care for the baby. Yet these same people wanting her to give birth aren't

No, it's brilliant. You're advocating for a policy that had it been used on you, you wouldn't be around to advocate for it in the first place.
