Its a vague yet sensible argument. There is no need to contribute needlessly to the population, I say if you can't look after/love the child, then you shouldn't really be having it. There are countless children in care, which is not only extremely sad but also very costly, and to have a child and then pretty much throw them away for the sake of your so called conscience is irresponsible beyond comprehension, not to mention extremely hypocritical as the overall damage both economically and emotionally of a child having to grow up in foster care is far greater than an aborted fetus, which is pretty much nonexistant.
Not to mention that contraception isn't 100% successful, condoms break etc, and sometimes even the morning after pill doesn't work either. It is possible to conceive even when you're trying to avoid it, although quite uncommon.
Also I'd like to add that sometimes even people that actually want to have a baby need to have an abortion, due to medical problems for example ectopic pregnancies, which if undetected is fatal, or if the life expectancy of the child is practically nonexistant, like in cases of anencephaly where the baby can't survive outside of the womb. There are many situations where if the fetus is carried to term, it would be fatal to both the baby and the mother, which is tragic.
There are also cases where the developing fetus can begin to miscarry and requires an abortion such as in this case, where unfortunately the woman was denied medical assistance because abortions are illegal in ireland and she died.
An abortion is a very difficult thing for a woman to go through, and can be very traumatic and can trigger depression, understandably. I find people who protest against abortion quite disgusting, especially when they verbally assault women and couples going into abortion clinics, as they are just making a painful ordeal all the more horrific.
Evidently, I am pro choice. If you want to keep your baby, that's fine, and that is your business and it is your body. It's none of your business if someone needs to get an abortion, for any reason. It is so sickening that in some countries it is illegal, and in certain places you can even be imprisoned for attempting to abort a fetus, even if it's a product of rape.
Yes it is. It is a fetus, not a developed person. If you are bringing a child to term you have to acknowledge that you will be responsible for that child, and will have to make decisions on it's behalf both during your pregnancy and for quite a long time after it is born. As I said is is completely foolish to have a baby and put it in care for the sake of a clean conscience. No one asks to be born, so it's not like the baby has any choice in the matter anyway.
Especially in cases of rape. You expect someone who has undergone something extremely traumatising and degrading, to fully love a child that is a product of abuse and violation? How would you feel if you found out you were concieved from rape? Not to mention, will that person even be capable of nurturing a child, not only will they most likely hold huge amounts of resent towards the child if they are forced to have it, but they will also be experience huge amounts of dysphoria, and it will most likely cause them to be very emotionally damaged. Imagine having to look at a child that resembles a person who brutally violated you.
Ultimately, if you don't have a womb, your opinion is worth close to nothing on the matter.
