Abortion, choice or murder?
So since I converted to atheism I have had a hard time with abortion. I still feel like it is murder and that A baby can always be put up for adoption. I just saw a video on my facebook wall that a girl posted. It shows an aborted fetus still being able to move and being ALIVE. I was adopted and if abortion was legal in Indiana, I could have been dead. What do you say about abortion and why?

Hello and Welcome!

I recommend using the forum search with the term abortion and checking the search title section. There are a lot of threads out there already discussing this sensitive subject!

Onward, my faithful steed!

I say that it is none of my business if someone I have never met wants to have a kid or not.

That's not entirely true and rather a bit of hyperbole. Abortion has been legal for a long time, adoptions still occur.

But still the point is choice. You don't like abortion, don't have one. But don't tell me that I can't just because you don't like it.

I just don't know if it's a women's rights issue or a persons issue on whether others will kill it or not.

If men got pregnant you'd be able to get abortions at Starbucks.

Don't kid yourself. Men have been trying to control women since we discovered they have different parts.

"Murder" is a legal term for the unlawful killing of another human being. Abortion is not illegal, therefore it cannot be murder.

Well it's not "murder", as "murder" is a legal term, which doesn't apply. Abortion is legal. Why not "Second Degree Man-slaughter" ? The fact is there are many legal situations where "taking a human life" is legal, (and even moral). A clump of cells, with no neural tube is not a human, (it's a "potential" human). Before you get all wacked out about it, maybe find out about how often late term abortions are actually done, and under what circumstances. They're actually very rare. I heard this past weekend the number of ABs had dropped significantly in the last reporting period, (I assumed this was due to the availability of "Plan B").

Abortions at lowest rates since 1973!
