Abortion should stay legal, convince me otherwise

Please do not use your religion in this. I have a very solid argument on why abortion should stay legal, it includes how the fetus can’t feel pain or emotion up until birth, why saying “taking away the potential to have a life is the same as murder” is just plain stupid, and how the fetus is not separate life from a pregnant person and how it should be the pregnant persons choice. Don’t say that if bacteria is considered life, then why is a heart beat not, because bacteria only need one cell to live while a human needs thousands.

@Liberal I have one question for you. What species is a human. And if it’s alive wouldn’t that be a human life which would make it you know. But because you said don’t say this and don’t say that I’ll put that aside. Let’s say a two people were in the act and the guy asks for condom and the girl says I don’t have any or visa versa and they continue to have sex knowing there is a chance of getting pregnant. That’s is the same think as playing with a gun and pointing at someone face as a joke and you accidentally shoot and kill them and guess what, you’ll be charged for murder. So why should the two people have the option of abortion from that circumstance because in both the gun and abortion situation you playing with fire. I listed a specific example because you said convince me otherwise. Also I’m not biased nor closed minded and I’d appreciate the same from you as well.

This is dumb. This is not how to make an argument.

How is it dumb. Please explain yourself because I am genuinely curious how it’s dumb. Where are the flaws.

I’d say that the streamer Destiny argues this better than me, but he has me questioning the whole abortion thing. My personal opinion is that abortion should stay legal for the simple reason that we want to ensure both the success of already living people and maximize the potential of possible babies who become moral and economic actors. I see fetuses like flies which may be swatted if it is to the betterment of society. The less crack babies the better. You want to have a kid in the best possible conditions.
The argument which I find hard to contest is that (and I agree with this) a life is determined by a unique sequence of genetic code. Also your idea that a fetus cant feel pain or emotions is stupid, read on it, you’re wrong. Essentially, imo, to argue for legal abortions you have to argue for ethical curation (or culling) of potential populace, which I dont think is hard to argue. We already have a death row for negative choice. Any abortion argument contingent upon some sort of trimester or birth requirement for “life” is indefensible logically. You need to understand that it is a “life” and be okay with curating which initiations into human life you find acceptable.

There are many reasons why abortion is perfectly fine. 1. The babies can’t feel it. 2. Sometimes abortion is a better choice as a result of deformities. 3. Getting a screwed up baby and a dead mother is worse than getting an abortion.
