The "my body, my choice" argument is one of the most frequently used in the abortion debate.

Women believe that their own autonomy prevents the government from telling them what to do.

But here's the problem: the unborn child inside of them is also a human being—a distinct person that deserves the right to life.

At the moment of conception, all 46 chromosomes are already in place. That means the baby's hair color, eye color, height, and countless other features have already been determined.

Does a pregnant woman have four arms, four legs, two hearts, two sets of lungs, and four feet? Obviously not.

There are two bodies present: the woman's body and the body of the child.

A baby has a functioning nervous system after 12 weeks and 90% of abortions take place after 13 weeks. So it can feel it limbs being torn apart and it try’s to get away from the danger. If you can still tell me it’s just a clump of cells then watch an abortion 13 weeks into the pregnancy on an ultrasound. Then tell me if it’s a clump of cells, and FYI things that aren’t alive can’t grow.

I said no, but it should he allowed in the first month or 2 when its just a cluster of cells or if there will be physical harm to the mom at any point in the pregnancy.
Very early abortion is basically the same thing as throwing a condom with sperm in it away or a tissue with sperm awat but good luck convincing people the masturbation is illegal, youll have a lot of fellon baby killers if thats the case lol.

After a certain time period when the baby can feel pain I believe it should be illegal. But I don't think we should make abortion illegal. For everyone say the women should use birth of and if they get pregnant it's their fault.

What about women who get raped shouldn't they have a right to abort their pregnancy. It is not their fault of they were raped. Even kids can get raped and get pregnant if they have had their period. Should they have to go though a pregnancy.

U do have a point but it is not right to do a abortion. There gonna have to deal with the pregnancy. Abortion is cruel and should be illegal everywhere.

Pro choice and for birth control more than anything, but come on folks, you gotta make these decisions quickly, and certainly in the 1st trimester , or tough it out and give the baby up for adoption.

I think aborting a perfectly healthy baby after the first term is wrong. You had those first few months to get one, not to mention plenty of options for birth control to prevent this from happening in the first place (for the most part).

A baby that is grown enough to survive without the mother. Has a right to not be killed. The words, "right up until birth" is an evil statement. The national socialist workers party had the same view with mentally retarded people because they didnt want to care for them, than it was by race, too young, too old. Than everyone the smart people they wanted their jobs, their homes, their living space. Not again democrat/socialists.

Why do you care if a mother completely unrelated to you has a baby or not? How does it effect your life?

For the same reason that I care if a mother completely unrelated to me kills her newborn baby. Or the same reason that I care if any person completely unrelated to me kills any other person, regardless of the stage of life of that other person. Murder is murder. It's not about how it affects my life. It's about the life of the baby.

02/04/19 10:08 am

Chad, your comments are pretty ridiculous.

First off, to ask the question “why do you care? How does it affect your life?” - well you could say the exact same thing about slavery, couldn’t you? If you aren’t a slave and it doesn’t affect your life, what do you care if someone else owns slaves? The answer is because people have certain rights. And they those rights need to be looked out for. If we as a society do not protect the rights of unborn children to live, nobody else will.

In terms of other murders, the murdering of innocent adults IS NOT LEGAL. Murdering of unborn babies is. That’s the distinction. If you don’t recognize that, there’s not much else to discuss.

02/04/19 12:08 pm

OMG Chad! Do you seriously not understand the parallel that I am talking about? When slavery was legal, folks like you said "I'm talking about a property owners rights to own a slave." Today, you are saying "I'm talking about a mother's rights." But both then AND now, it is about the individual whose rights are being unjustly taken away. During slavery, it was the right to freedom that was taken away. Today, it is the right to life. The arguments you are making today about abortion are identical to the arguments pro-slavery folks made 150 years ago. If you are anti-slavery, then you can see how it wasn't about a property owners rights, it was about the rights of the slaves. Today, for pro-life people, it's not about the rights of the mothers, it is about the rights of the unborn babies.

ChadRico Virginia
02/04/19 12:13 pm

unforgvnn, LOOK! Bottom line it is none of your or anyone else’s business what a woman does with their own body! I know you’ll probably give me some history lesson here but slaves did not have rights! If they did they wouldn’t be slaves! Unborn babies do not have rights either. The mother has a right to terminate a pregnancy if she chooses!

unforgivnn
02/04/19 12:18 pm

That’s the ENTIRE point. Slaves did not have rights under the law, and that was WRONG. They should not be slaves and should have the same rights as everyone else. Which is exactly what the civil war was largely about. Slavery was abolished and slaves gained equal rights.

My position is the same with abortion. I reject your assertion that the mother’s rights trump the right to live of her unborn baby. That’s why I think abortion is immoral and why I want to see it ended.

If you disagree and believe the unborn child does not have those rights, then we have an unreconcilable difference and will have to agree to disagree.

But for pro-life people, it’s not about the moms. It’s about the rights of the unborn child.

ChadRico Virginia
02/04/19 12:23 pm

Mothers rights trumps (no joke intended) he babies so called rights.

unforgivnn
02/04/19 12:29 pm

And that, Chad, is the core, fundamental difference we have. I believe the unborn babies rights reign supreme.

So at least now you understand why pro-life people care what happens to a baby not in our family. You obviously don’t agree, but you can understand.

ChadRico Virginia
02/04/19 12:33 pm

Nope, still don’t understand why you care about what happens to someone completely unrelated to you. You can’t worry about everyone.

02/04/19 12:35 pm

That’s BS. We MUST worry about the basic rights of everyone. Once we start not caring about the rights of others, we are doomed. Because eventually, the government will take away rights you do care about. And if and when that happens, you are going to hope there are other people out there you don’t know advocating for your rights.

ChadRico Virginia
02/04/19 1:18 pm

So you mean to tell me that you care about the rights of every single man, woman & child that has ever lived? Then that would mean you care about the rights of pregnant mothers right to abort herchild if she chooses.

unforgivnn
02/04/19 1:22 pm

Boy, it’s tough getting through to you Chad. A person’s rights ends at the point that they infringe on someone else’s rights.

I have the right to own a gun. That doesn’t mean I have the right to shoot you because my right to own (and use) a gun cannot trump your to live.

Likewise, the rights of a woman to "decide what to do with her body" do not trump the rights of the unborn child to live.

ChadRico Virginia

Aren’t murderers infringing on their victims right to live? Before you say abortion is murder. Murder is illegal, abortion is not!

unforgivnn
02/04/19 1:44 pm

Let me clarify for you since you obviously did not understand what I was saying.

A person is stop stripped of ALL rights if they infringe on someone else's rights. I am saying that a specific right you have stops if using that right infringed on someone else's right.

We have the right to free speech. But you do not have the right to yell "fire" in a crowded theater if there is no fire because that can cause harm (in a panic). So at that moment, you do not have freedom of speech in that specific example. Does that make sense?

Murder is illegal, but pro-life people like myself view abortion as murder which is why we would like to see abortion outlawed.

I asked you a yes or no question. "Do you understand that my motivation is not to take away the rights of women, but to defend the rights of the unborn child?" - Yes or no question. You haven't answered it.

If that person in a coma has adults around that want them dead, is it then okay for them to kill the person in the coma? You said that an unborn baby cannot enforce their right to live. So it is up to the mother to decide. A person in a coma cannot enforce their right to live. Therefore, isn't it up to the people around them and, if they decide that person should be killed, slitting their throat and killing them should be entirely allowed?

ChadRico Virginia
02/04/19 6:13 pm

You didn't and still aren't answering it. But whatever. Let's move on.

ChadRico Virginia
02/04/19 6:29 pm

unforgivnn
02/04/19 6:36 pm

So you have absolutely no retort. Which, logically, you can't. I'm not twisting anything. It is very straight-forward.

If you believe that the reason abortion should be allowed in because an unborn child cannot enforce their own rights, then that logic can be extended to an adult that also cannot enforce their own rights. To be consistent, you have to support killing an adult in a coma if you support killing an unborn baby if the foundation of your argue is "ability to enforce ones own rights".

Is the definition of citizen with rights difficult to define when you use an ancient definition of birth? It’s definitely difficult when you have a cesarean section and you have a baby that is months from being born suddenly a citizen simply because it hit the air. These are unbelievable definitions that make no sense. It’s like you’re not a citizen while you’re underwater holding your breath, have no rights and can be killed without penalty simply because you’re not out in the air. It’s ludicrous. Do you think that a fetus becomes a sentient being before it’s born? With a heartbeat, brainwaves, thoughts and dreams? Because it does happen well before it hits the air.

Gelina let’s be clear. No mother who can have their baby and has carried it to that point in the pregnancy intentionally is giving up the chance for a child without extreme reasons. The obvious reason would be a caesarian would kill the mother and so would keeping the baby leaving no real option.

gelina44 Springfield, MO
02/03/19 3:47 pm

Koro thanks, unfortunately many women have aborted their children long past the point of viability and at least one doctor is in prison for it. I suppose it is possible that there could be a woman unable to undergo cesarean and so unable to undergo any surgery... and maybe that same person also can’t give birth naturally. Seems unlikely but it is possible that such a medical condition might exist. I’d want to know what conditions that might apply to.

02/05/19 7:26 pm

I think it is an issue to terminate 9 month old fetuses if there is no medical emergency, regardless of the number of times it happens.
Would you say we shouldn’t pass laws against murder because it is so rare ? Murder rate in the US is less than 0.01%.
It’s the same argument you are making.

gelina44 Springfield, MO
02/05/19 8:01 pm

Not to put too fine a point on it... if “only 1%” would do such a thing and there are on average 600,000 abortions in the US each year that is 6,000 babies killed every year who might live without the aid of their biological mother.
To put that in perspective there were 51 people killed in school shootings last year which has been called a public health crisis. In states where induced abortions have been legal there were 188 babies aborted in 2015.
In the US it is possible for a baby as young as 23 weeks to survive delivery. And in about 1 of ever 450 pregnancies the woman will not even know she is pregnant until after 20 weeks.

I really really hate the idea of late term abortion and I think they should be avoided as much as possible.

But I said yes because I believe people should be logically consistent with their policy positions. I am pro-choice because I don’t think the law should be able to compel one person to use their body for another person’s benefit no matter the circumstances. So brought to it’s logical conclusion I must support this.

What I think about the morality of such a choice is immaterial.

Conversely, I think pro-lifers should always be against any exceptions when their reasoning is that “life is sacred” or whatnot.

If you believe that, you have to take on every single unsavory situation that can arise with it. You have to be willing to sign off on, for example, forcing a young teenager who was raped by her father to carry the fetus to term.

If you decide to take people’s rights and their bodily autonomy away, you can’t suddenly get squeamish when it’s inconvenient.

chickencookie Jihad Joe
02/03/19 12:14 pm

You have 9 months to decide this. There is no reason why anyone should be in this position. If the baby is sick it was probably discovered months ago at monthly/weekly visits. If mother is in danger of death (which is so rare like 2%) all doctors will do everything to save mother first. But to kill a baby after it’s born or anytime in 9th month does not seem...right. It’s 2019 folks not 1400.

I’m in favor of bodily autonomy. So you can not kill a baby in utero because they are persons with bodily autonomy.

taumpy Massachusetts
02/03/19 3:30 pm

Well, here’s the thing. I across the board do not support infringing on someone’s bodily autonomy for another person’s benefit. Even their life.

The government should not be able to compel me to give blood or a kidney, and it should not compel women to carry a fetus against her will. The right of bodily autonomy goes to the person whose body is being used. Not who is using it.

But that said, I do respect the consistency of your position.

Taumpy, what if the fetus is viable? Then you don't have to abort, you could remove it so that you're not carrying it anymore. Win-win

02/03/19 3:59 pm

Taumpy so would be ok with saying as soon as a baby can be delivered and live outside the womb so it is no longer living inside his mother that he can no longer be aborted? That way your definition of bodily autonomy can be maintained and the second person involved can also be given autonomy.

Bruh, how can you justify an abortion at 40 weeks? The baby is fully developed at that point, could easily survive out of the womb, and is ready to be born. That's straight up murder and the only difference between a 40 week old pregnancy and a 40 week old baby is where the baby is.

Less than 1.2% of terminations take place after 24 weeks. The data doesn't specify weeks after that point, so I can only guess it's a tiny fraction occurring in 30+ weeks.

Phalx, yes conservatives like small government. But we believe one of the few jobs the government has is to preserve life, and give rights to those that don't have a voice. It's not "you're body" when the fetus has its own dna.

Also, we understand late term abortions are very rare. That's not a good reason to allow it. Using new York as an example, it was very rare because it was illegal to late term abort unless the mothers life was at risk. Now it really doesn't matter the reason.

Why is it is u r driving and kill a pregnant mother in an auto accident, u get charged with two counts of murder or manslaughter if that is the charge by the DA ? If the baby is a blob of cells , it cannot be a murder charge for the baby. If the baby is a human in the womb with full protection under the law, the abortion is murder.
This is indisputable factual evidence !!!!!

No longer in New York. Their new law did 3 things simultaneously, which intentionally compounds the evil intentions of the law.
1. Allows abortion up until birth to protect the life OR HEALTH of the mother. This is important because it can mean anything, including mental health or something as minimal as headaches. There really is no restriction, as long as the provider is willing to do it.
2. Allows non-doctors to perform abortions. This is important because it increases the likelihood of finding someone willing to perform an abortion for the flimsiest of reasons. It also decreases the safety for the women.
3. Takes away the status of personhood for the unborn. This takes away the fear of legal consequences for performing an abortion for no reason, and also takes away the legal consequences of violence against a pregnant woman that also harms the baby.
This is a truly evil law, and shame on the NY elected officials for applauding and cheering its passage.

There are no protections against that in the law. Opening it up to non-doctors being able to perform them only increases the likelihood. 33% of pregnancies in NY result in abortion, second only to DC at 38%.

Nature has a way of terminating a majority of non-viable fetus on its own.
You're concentrating on a very small percentage of cases. You're making it seem like every abortion is done for a 'noble' cause.
The state of Florida records a reason for every abortion that occurs within its borders each year. In 2015, there were 71,740 abortions in Florida. This table lists each reason and the percentage of abortions that occurred because of it.
.001% The pregnancy resulted from an incestuous relationship
.065% The woman's life was endangered by the pregnancy
.085% The woman was raped
.288% The woman's physical health was threatened by the pregnancy
.294% The woman's psychological health was threatened by the pregnancy
.666% There was a serious fetal abnormality
6.268% The woman aborted for social or economic reasons
92.330% No reason (elective)
Less than 2% were for health reasons or rape/incest. Can't we concentrate on those, without making it easier for anyone?

Im referring to the late term abortion component which is miniscle but for importat reasons. Yet its fodder for activists who use that language for their oown purpose.

Im pragmatist about abortion, the debate about whether its a life or not doesnt mean as much to me as it does to others. I am concerned about women who are the most vulnerable, typically the poor, women of color or women who are in high-risk relationships. The same folks who want to eliminate abortion wont discuss social safety nets for these populations, and at worst blame them for their own situation.

schoolmom Nebraska

Yes, when the life of the mother is at risk or then fetus is not viable. I had a friend whose sister carried a baby with only a brain stem to full term. She knew for the 3rd trimester that she was carrying a a baby that could not survive out of the womb. The baby did live 5 days outside the womb. But, it was her choice to do that. It should be her choice. It would be very difficult for a mother carrying a baby to term and going through labor and delivery, knowing at the end, the baby would die within hours or days. It was also very confusing for her other two small children. That choice should be between the mother, father, and doctor. It should not be made by me or anyone else.

If a woman just aborts her baby because she's using abortion as a form of birth control, or she just decides she doesn't want a child, she's not a mother.

Abortion ought to be illegal at ANY stage during a pregnancy and the penalty for carrying out such a heinous procedure ought to be PUBLIC stoning to DEATH for both the doctor and the patient. God’s Holy Word makes it crystal clear that He knew us BEFORE He even created us, ergo life begins BEFORE conception. If fact, each and every life was conceived in the mind of God at the beginning of time, as was every event, thought in your head, and the number of hairs on your body.
By aborting a fetus, you are MURDERING life that God created and you will be judged as a MURDERER on your Day of Judgement, upon which God will pick you up by the scruff of your filthy, unwashed neck and drop kick your butt into the ETERNAL LAKE OF FIRE, where you will be savagely tortured by Satan for eternity, and rightfully so. Just remember that the child you aborted will be frying along side you because you SELFISHLY withheld the sacrament of baptism from it, DOOMING it to eternal torture. Think before you act.

There is no need to stone the stoners because they haven’t committed any crime. They are carrying out their God-given duty to extinguish the life of someone who has committed grievous sins. There are plenty of sins that merit the death penalty, such as murder and homosexuality. All you have to do is crack that Bible and READ IT rather then having it sit on your shelf like some kind of trophy.
As for me being a “troll”,’ my response is YAWN. Hot Christians (as opposed to lukewarm Christians) often get called trolls for preaching the unaltered truth of God because the truth of God is unappealing to so many. You would prefer that I sweeten the word of God so it appeals to more people but that would be LYING. The only thing I can do is take pleasure in the fact that you will all one day face eternal torture for your disobedience (Psalm 58:10-11). Repent or perish. Amen.
