A fertilized egg is not a human being.
It isn’t. I don’t give a flying rat’s bare ass what kind of reasoning you put behind it, scientific fact states that a fertilized egg is not a human being. By that note, a woman’s menstruation and a male’s ejaculation (when not inside a vagina) is murder. If you’re going to tell me that Plan B (the morning after pill) is murder because life starts with conception, 1.) you’re an idiot, and 2.) you’ve obviously never paid attention in biology class.
You don’t have to support abortion. If it were me- I wouldn’t support it either. However, you cannot tell someone what they can and cannot do with their own body. And until that fetus is fully formed (by the beginning of the third trimester), it is the direct extension of the woman’s body, and it is her sole right to choose whether or not she is going to carry that child (whether for medical reasons or personal reasons).
Do I agree with frivolous abortions? No. Do I feel that women should go out and have it done just because they make mistakes? No. But is it my place to tell someone what they can and cannot do with their bodies? Not in a million years.
A woman’s right to choose is constitutionally protected. If you are a ‘Pro-Lifer’, you are also ‘Anti-Constitution’. If you are just against abortion in your own right, and do not advocate it (but wouldn’t begin to tell someone what they can and cannot do with their own bodies) then you are anti-abortion. (And I’m sorry, under extreme medical circumstances, incest, and rape, abortion may be necessary.)
Get the fuck over yourselves, stop trying to control other people, and stop trying to change scientific fact.
