Do y'all believe it is acceptable for a woman to have an abortion?

IMO:

when a woman says "I should decide what to do with my body" I'm like "well... first of all that baby isn't part of your body, it's someone else's body, so yeah..."

what're yalls views on this topic? post below!

Good day and God Bless Smile

How do you exercise yours? I have a feeling how you exercise your human rights differs from how a 2 year old exercises his, or a person in a vegetative state, or a person in prison, or a baby in utero, or a 10 year old, or a person with Downs Syndrome, etc.

Human beings undergo different stages of development, but they are always human beings with unalienable rights.

I exercise my rights personally.

How do fertilized eggs exercise their natural rights?

Personally?

Or are they exercised by others for them?

Are you implying if a person can’t exercise his/her rights personally, then he/she has none?

So . . . . to you a person in a vegetative state, a person with severe mental disability, and a 6 month old baby do not have natural rights?

No.

You claimed that the unborn have natural rights.

I then asked you, "How do fertilized eggs exercise their natural rights?"

You answered that question with a question: "How do you exercise yours?"

I answered that "I exercise my rights personally."

That says nothing about anyone not having natural rights.

Can you answer the following question:

Can fertilized eggs exercise their natural rights?

My point in my original response by responding to your question with a question was to show you it isn’t in how we exercise our rights that matter. The point is that we have rights.

Your original comment was, “How do fertilized eggs exercise their natural rights?”

The point of my response is what the heck difference does it make? Like I pointed out, we all may exercise our rights differently during different stages of development or not even exercise that am at all. Clearly this does not mean we don’t have rights just because we might not exercise them exactly like you.

So, to answer your question, “Can fertilized eggs exercise their natural rights?” my response is they needn’t have to. They Have rights simply by being human beings. But one could argue that they exercise their natural rights by existing, by growing, and by developing. Unless you do something to actively destroy them, they will continue to exercise their natural rights by naturally continuing to develop and grow.

Others make decisions for those incapable of making decisions on their own. This includes fertilized eggs.

What about the right to die? If embryos have rights, don't they have the right to die. And don't we violate their right to die by having them live, the same as we violate their right to live by having them die?

My point--and I do have a point--is that you can't have a right to do something without having a desire to do that thing. Embryos aren't people. They don't have desires. They don't have rights.

If we pretended they had rights, we'd have to pretend that we violated some right no matter what we did. Don't people have the right to travel? Don't we violate that right every time a pregnant woman stays home? It's better not to pretend.

Yes, and those decisions cannot take away their right to life. One member of society does not get to decide/pick and choose whether another innocent member of society can be murdered. And no one should want to live in a society where they can. I can make decisions for my children, but I am not allowed to decide to end their life – that is ridiculous.

No. And how could you know what they wanted? But no. Human beings do not have the right to die via other means than natural death. Obviously, you can’t stop someone from killing themselves, but it is immoral for them to do so and should never be encouraged/supported.

Quote:

First, they have no right to die. But even if they did, and you couldn’t determine what it is he/she wants then you better err on the side of life.

Quote:

Absurd. Like I said that leads to arguments then to get rid of all the weak, vulnerable, feeble minded, mentally ill, elderly, handicapped, unborn, etc among us. My 3 year old has a right to live whether he verbalizes that or not by simply being a human being he has the right!


Quote:
Embryos aren't people


We all start out as embryos – human life coded with DNA. They are human beings just at a different stage of development. If you aren’t sure – why don’t you wait 9 months just to be sure?

Quote:

Nonsense. You don’t know this AND the right to life isn’t about mental capability and certainly does not come down to desire. Let’s stick with what we do know – facts/science.

Have no idea what you are talking about here.

You can attempt to argue that an embryo is human, but to no avail since the value of an embryo is not the same value as an actual human life. Not even close I would argue and that is not even taking into account that almost half of all fertilizations naturally abort (just to put an embryo into perspective).

It is a diservice to actual humans to call an embryo human IMO. Works OK I guess if your attempting to make an emotional argument over a factual one though I suppose. While you are at it, I suggest you use the term 'murder' as much as you can fit it in.

Question for you:
If abortion were deemed illegal and when some women were to get them performed anyway, those caught, do they deserve the same penalty as those the have committed murder? (Death penalty in some states)
