I saw someones “Non religious reasons to be against abortion and this sorta happened so enjoy:
“It’s not safe”
Abortion is one of the safest medical procedures available when done by someone who is trained. You have a better chance of dying getting
your tonsils out in a safe setting then you do from having an abortion
in a safe setting.
“Do both parents agree?”
It doesn’t matter if both parties are okay
with the decision, only one persons body is being used and this notion
that BOTH parties must consent indicates that one person is OWNED by the
other. (Not to mention, if this is an abuse situation why should the
abusers opinion matter if it isn’t their decision?)
“What about the many who regret”
95% of people
who have abortions say it was the right decision for them. There is no
‘right’ way to feel but overwhelmingly it would seem that people who get
an abortion know it was the right choice at that time for them. Yes,
some people do regret and wish they could take it back, but we don’t
deny people rights because some people regret having that right. Some
people regret who they voted for in the last election, that doesn’t mean
we take away the right to vote.
“Some people suffer permanent damage”
What about when permanent damage
occurs? Again, getting your tonsils out is more dangerous than an
abortion. We can no longer have any surgery made available to anyone
because a very small percentage of people MIGHT suffer long-term side
effects as a result and an even smaller percent MIGHT die, nevermind
that we save way more lives by allowing legal and safe access.
“If it’s rape you shouldn’t punish the child!!”
after rape isn’t about ‘punishment’ of a fetus, it’s about what the
rape survivor NEEDS. If they need an abortion then they need an
abortion. If they need to give birth then they need to give birth. It’s
up to THEM to decide what they need though, not some jag on the internet
who thinks they know everything.
“You don’t have the right to kill something!”
If that ‘life’ is dependant on
using MY internal organs and MY body then it’s absolutely MY right to
decide whether it gets to continue to use MY body and MY organs. That’s
just assuming you’re against mandatory organ and blood donations
anyways, because you’d need to be pro forced organ-transplant and forced
blood transfusions if you’re pro forcing people to remain pregnant
against their will… just for consistencies sake.
“It’s killing something, even if it’s just cells it’s still a life!”
killing something’ can also be said of everything from washing your
hands to eating a meal. Something dies so you can stay alive, I don’t
see anyone weeping over the mosquito’s that get slapped, the carrots
they crunch between their teeth or the weeds they’re pulling or the
salad they’re eating so ‘it’s a life’ so what? So are countless other
things on this planet all living and dying right now.
