Firstly: why does the right to choose mean more than the right to life? surely to choose you must be alive so why doesn't life come first and THEN the right to live that life as you want to????
Secondly: if the right to choose is so important when will it stop?? if everyone pleases themselves with no regard to others, will anyone be happy, because everyone will do what they want with no consideration for those around them and so their actions will hurt (physically and/or emotionally) their friends, family, boyfriends/girlfriends, husbands/wives, work colleagues, etc
3: if the right to choose eventually becomes embedded in law will we end up in a Gattaca (like the film) situation where everyone is screened for possible defects and if they are deemed imperfect they will be aborted or even killed after birth if a 'defect' isn't detected prior to that??? and if they are carried to full term and let live, will they be treated like a subspecies with no rights?
4: we all agree that stopping WW2 was the 'right' thing to do, but by the 'right to choose' argument Hitler had every right to exterminate 6 million jews and cause unaccountable suffering (physical and emotional) to countless others, simply because he didn't like them, he didn't want to live in a world with them so he 'chose' not to, by killing them>...
