Abortion is the murder of a POTENTIAL life. We have no way of knowing whether the baby to be would even be, or be what. If you want to say stopping potential life is wrong, then don't use a condom or you are a hypocrite. In fact, if you are ever not trying to conceive a child at any point in time, you are denying that possible baby the right to live. So every second you have, inadvertently "killed" hundreds of babies. Being fully aware of ones actions does not make them any worse, so how can abortion be wrong?
human babies are some of the most dependent babies of any species on their mother. Human babies cannot survive without their mother for years after birth. Should they only be considered 'potential' life?
It is biological. Mothers are nurturing. Fathers are not necessarily. They can be, but are generally not as nurturing. Especially in the animal kingdom.
Humans are generally depedant on their mothers even after they're babies. I'm too lazy to look up statistics ATM, but i'm sure if you were to find some research done on divorces where 50% went with their mothers, and 50% with the fathers, the Fathers side would have many more psychological issues, social issues, and probably would be depressed.
That probably has more to do with the fact that a higher proportion of fathers are shitty fathers than mothers are shitty mothers.
I completely agree, but that could definitely be a biological, or innate thing. Not saying it is for a fact, but you understand the possibility and the reasoning behind it.
EDIT:: Wow, I literally just posted a long response and the post was blank when I went to view it. That's hilarious.
Anyway, jist of it is, it is biological. Mothers are nurturing, fathers generally are not. It's inherited from our primate ancestors actually. Male primates are generally infanticidal.http://www.dana.org/news/cerebrum/detail.aspx?id=2818
There is a further consequence. Infanticide is common among gorillas, as it is among many primates. A bachelor male inﬁltrates a harem, grabs a baby, and kills it. This has two effects on the baby’s mother (apart from causing her great, though transient, distress): ﬁrst, by halting her lactation it brings her back into estrus; second, it persuades her that she needs a new harem master who is better at protecting her babies. And who better to choose than the raider? So she leaves her mate and marries her baby’s killer. Infanticide brings genetic rewards to males, who thereby become more fecund ancestors than males that do not kill babies; hence most modern gorillas are descended from killers. Infanticide is a natural instinct in male gorillas.
