Abortion Pro-life answers:
Pro-choice argument #1: Pro-lifers want to take away women's rights.
#1. We support women's rights. We're all for choice too... so long as you don't kill anybody. Your argument begs the question however - does abortion kill an innocent human being? If not, you go right ahead and have as many abortions as you like. However, if it does result in the deliberate death of an innocent human being, well that's the definition of murder. You don't have a right to choose murder.
# 2. Fifty percent of unborn children are girls. The unborn female has a body that is separate to that of her mother. She has her own unique DNA. Her genetic code directs the development and growth of her own body from the moment of conception. Therefore, one out of every two abortions takes away the rights of a woman. It takes away her right to control her own body. It takes away her right to choose anything in the future. And it takes away a right more fundamental than the right to choose - the right to not be killed.
Pro-choice argument #2 Women will die of unsafe abortions if we make it illegal.
#1. That argument begs the question - is it ok for society to sanction child-murder just because some people might do it anyway? Should we legalize rape so the government can make it safer and cleaner? Should we legalize the underground trade in sex slaves to regulate and make it safer?
#2. That is a myth concocted by the abortion industry. Before it's legalization, most illegal abortions were already committed in doctor's offices by physicians. Dr. Bernard Nathansan, the co-founder of the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), admits that he and other abortion industry leaders invented figures to make the claim that "thousands of women are dying annually from unsafe abortions." They did this in order to win public sympathy for legalization.
#3. It's possible that more women are dying today as a result of legal abortion than were dying before its legalization in 1969. Abortion surgery and abortifacient pills like RU-486 do sometimes result in death from continued bleeding or infection. Studies also show a correlation between abortion-choice and suicide.
