Fetal Pain

Why all the attention on the "Fetus does/doesn't feel pain?" How is this relevent to the abortion discussion? Why are we even having this discussion?

Slam dunk:

1. It has to be a personal decision. The government cannot legislate what a woman should do. The government should not want to be involved in this decision. Doctors are more than capable of discussing the subject with their patients.
2. If abortion were illegal, who do you punish and how? Doctors? Women? Parents, teenagers, who? You don't want to go down this road, there is no satisfactory answer.
3. Unwanted children do society no good. These studies make perfect sense.
4. Population is a problem, one has to be realistic about this, as harsh as it may sound.
5. A person who does not want to have a child, should not be having a child.
6. Let doctors practice sound medicine. Don't compromise their oath to humanity with political pressure, fake science and religious based laws.

Opposing Abortion? There is only one:
Abortion kills a human being. Yes, that is awful. No one wants or likes to see people dying, but the reality is that everyday, plenty of people we don't know, die. "102 people died in a plane crash in Europe somewhere, 20 iraqi civilians died an a car bomb, 5 killed in landslide in California.." And how does it affect us? It doesn't really, we didn't know them, shit happens, it is part of the cycle of life. That's what an abortion is; a person we don't know, dying. Sure, it is the hand of man in the lifecycle, but what's the news about that?

Let's move on to other things.

I agree to some extent.

I think contraception should be more available, the patch has cut the teen pregnancy rate by alot.

Some girls just need more help with getting health care before they get an unwanted pregnancy.
