Does the abortion debate depends on morality or politics?

Recently in Argentina, a motion led by feminists basically legalized abortion in that country. The debate was intense and still goes on… but I heard several people argue that this is a debate which was already addressed by developed countries and because LA is such a religious continent, this topic should be normalized as soon as possible because conservative points of view are just old-fashioned. I just think LA is not ready for these kinds of issues…

I’m pro-life btw, but I would love to read all opinions.

How is Latin America not prepared for these types of issues? That point gives me the impression you have a very provincial attitude.

Abortion has nothing to do with morality anymore. It did, and it should, but it doesn’t. Now the argument is based on convenience. Is the baby gonna be a burden or not. Not whether the baby is a baby. People have now just listened to the media and believe that that is not a baby. The fetus’s heart starts beating at the age of just 3 weeks. Most abortions happen at the ages           4 1/2-12 weeks. For a being to be living they have to have a pulse. When a doctor checks to see if someone is alive, they check for a pulse. If they have one, they are alive. 

Now in this time period, we have reverted the argument to be an argument of politics or convenience. I have no money, kill it. I have no husband, kill it. I don’t want it, kill it.

The main argument in politics is whether they can get affordable birth control. Last i checked, birth control is extremely affordable. The average cost of a condom is around $1. A five year old kid could afford that. Plan B pills cost around $30-$65. Not the cheapest but still affordable. 

Another option is always adoption. 

BuT tHe MoThEr Is In DaNgEr!?!?

A mother has a 0.024% chance of dying from child birth in the US, and that number is going down. And there are 44.5 million babies being killed by abortions. And people die from abortions, sometimes two.

Just because a fetus has a heartbeat doesn’t mean it’s murder to abort it. When people are on life support and the family decides to pull the plug it’s not murder. And to dumb modern abortion down to such simple ideas is ridiculous. Women who get an abortion have their own reasons and shouldn’t have to explain themselves it’s their body. Plus plan B and condoms aren’t 100% effective. With adoption the child could spend their entire lives in the foster system or in an abusive situation. And the argument isn’t whether a fetus is a baby (it isn’t on a biological level) it’s whether or not women have a right to their bodily autonomy. And not that the reason for a women wanting to get an abortion matters but dying from child birth has actually increased by 50% over the past 15 years. Also that’s not even scratching the surface of reasons women would get an abortion so trying to invalidate abortion over one argument is ignorant.

I think it is based more on morality. Although the fetus’ heartbeat begins around week 5, the fetus is still a life, and by aborting, you are killing that innocent child. Fetus’ are the most innocent among us, and they could not have done anything wrong to deserve death so young. The fetus deserves all human rights as we do. They should not be treated as a “thing”. They should not get their life taken from them simply for the mother’s convenience. I understand that, when a woman is pregnant and not ready for a baby, it can be hard. But they chose to have sex in the first place, and there are many things you can use to stay protected, such as condoms or birth control, which are very cheap. And instead of killing that child, there’s always another option; adoption. I know you’re pro-life, as I am too, but I just really wanted to get this out.

You can be brought up in a christian home and still be pro-choice and make the choice to abort and not bring a child into this world. When it comes to politics they can all go fuck off because they honestly have no rights telling us what we can and not do with our bodies because they will not step up to pay for the child’s life.
