    My daughter was born at 23 weeks gestation, weighed 1 pound at birth, and survived open heart surgery and two head surgeries. She is now four years old and completely fine. My argument is that abortions especially late term, are not only immoral but could be considered murder. I watched my daughter fight to live for five months in the NICU, and she was fully human and aware at 23 weeks gestation.

      @dirty5thirtyrecords I was a child born of a mother who didnt want me. I was abused, neglected, starved, sexually abused, and she even tried to kill me a couple times. She was a drug addict and she would put me in and out of different homes all the time when she needed to go off gallivanting. we were poor and i barely had means to survive. I was put into Foster care at 12yo where i was continued to be abused and tormented but in a new way. I was up for adoption but never was adopted because its an incredibly difficult process for people, no one wants a child or teen they want an infant and there are not enough homes. My mother wanted to abort me but she was convinced not to. Today i live with chronic mental health, depression, physical scars and a crippling fear of life and the world. I am miserable and there is very very little hope i will ever make it to middle class or be able to live a happy life because mental health is not a well understood and treated disease..... we all have an argument for our side. Not everyone should have a baby, Adoption does not always happen for kids (they end up in a system that neglects them and teaches them no life skills, which is why they make up most of the homeless population.) and poverty is no place for a child. A great deal of abortion is mercy.

    This is an argument to moderation. If in your opinion a fetus is not a baby, then you should be ok with abortion for any reason. If you believe having an abortion is akin to murder, then it should be illegal in any situation. The gray area is not in the preluding circumstance, but when should the fetus should be considered a baby.

      Why should any disabled baby or a baby produced from rape has the right to be killed?
