The thing that confounds me about abortion even when we look past the not allowing people to decide for themselves must surely be the fact that anti-abortionists consider a fetus a human. Here is the mission statement page for the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform....which have religious ties.
(the fact that they are against contraception, makes me wonder if they have advanced beyond the stone age)
Or Concerned Women for America....which also have religious ties.... see the link developing
So if a fetus is a human then surely it can survive outside of the mother at any point, let that be any time from fertilized egg onwards according to the group above. But this is not the case, we all know that these stages of development have to take place in the womb of the mother. So this means it is only able to exist while in the host body...reminds me of another organism i.e. parasite. I am not saying kids are parasites, hell I love kids, but we have to realize what a fetus is. Its not a human unless it can survive outside of the host and up until that point the mother has the right to decide what to do with it. Thats why late term abortions are only done in life threatening situations, because the fetus is reaching a point of self survival outside of the womb.
Religion is against abortion, yet god is the biggest culprit.
Religion always promotes free will, but don't decide you want to have an abortion.
I hope one day a lady can get to do what she wants with her body without fear of intimidation.
