Forgive me if it's been posted before, but are there any on here that anyone disagrees with?

Hi, mootoad -
'Very good of you to reply; thanks again.
I'm sorry, but that is a flawed analogy. Poverty, debts, jail, they do not automatically equal physical difficulties. Pregnancy does, no matter how well the pregnant woman is able to adjust.
If I were a plantation owner in the 1800s, and I lost my slaves, my slaves could not have the power to make me die from the inside. Yet that is precisely what my own very much planned, very much wanted pregnancy threatened to do to me.
I am pro-choice because I believe that pregnancy should not be a punishment to women for not being chaste their entire lives. Do we have similar physical punishments we can mete out to men who participate in the conception of an unwanted fetus?

In my opinion, I agree with you. I'm pretty anti-abortion, despite being completely pro-choice. But then, there are lots of actions that parents take to/for their offspring that I find are rarely justifiable, yet I do not seek to make them all illegal.
Rather, I seek to minimize the problem. If you solve unwanted pregnancy, then abortions are only necessary in, as you infer, the other situations where they would be "justifiable." But the pro-life lobby, I'm afraid, has done extremely little to decrease unwanted pregnancies.
Hi, adamsmumma -
First off I want to say "Welcome to the Debate!"
No, I believe that fertilized ovum are already human, albeit at an early stage of human life.
I think there's a pretty fair chance of that, I honestly do. My second and third sisters (there are 5 of us) fought like cat
I may have misunderstood you, but you seemed quite dismissive of the difficulties and dangers involved in pregnancy.
