The issue is undecidable. Both sides of the argument can be reduced to absurdity. It is impossible to draw a 'morally correct' line, so the next best thing to do is to draw a utilitarian line. And the utilitarian line is to legalize abortion. For reasons to numerous and obvious to mention.
Well it comes down to what you think about adoption, I don't think abortion should be used as birth control, however when it comes to unwanted kids.
Personally, I know people that have gone through adoption; and their life is miserable. Is it immoral to prevent an untrained life from misery by killing it?
In my opinion no, because a life time of pain/problems from being an unwanted child shouldn't be outweighed by selfish conservatives or pro-lifers.
It is immoral to set a life to this course because you think it is right.
oh please... adopted children are not better off dead... most of them go on to live happy and productive lives. It's quite obvious that they'd prefer to live than to be killed... after all, the suicide rate of adopted children is pretty damn low. I think it's just sick that you're trying to justify murder by saying "they're better off dead."
Considering that adoption agencies are beyond lame and derogating, there is no point to bringing a child into
a world, that even until they are adopted; live a sad life.
If we go into it, a Fetus is not a human being until the later stages of the pregnancy; even then, it will come down
Would you rather spare an unwanted child the pain of being unwanted (minus pre-arranged adoptions of course)
before he/she gets the chance to grow up and learn in that environment.
Would you rather not think from THEIR point of view, obviously not all these adoption agencies are miracles.
Obviously you are not taking into consideration the kids that are born as drug babies, etc; such as kids who develop
cancer at the age of 4 and die a miserable death.
But, no I presume pro-lifers don't take that into consideration when saying killing untrained lives is wrong.
Personally, little babies are adorable creatures, however letting them suffer is wrong.
You think you're promoting life, but you are promoting human suffering, and that, that is immoral; condemning a
life to suffering is wrong.
As noted of course, for if there is Life, there is ALWAYS Death; you do well to remember that, because when a
life is ignited into the world, another is snuffed out.
