    • I agree with your post, in regards that the argument of “what about rape or incest” for abortion would not be a very good argument. These cases are rare and do not happen often. If you cannot afford to raise the baby, adoption is always an option. One does not get to choose whether or not a fetus, human being, should live or die based on ones own personal convenience. Determining whether something gets to live or die based on convenience is pure evil.

    • Hi Peter,

      I liked the beginning of your article because it is very neutral. However, I do not agree with your argument about abortion. First off, I am a female and I would have to raise the child despite what money I don’t have. There is the option of adoption, yes, but it is also a matter of the toll with going through a pregnancy. I am both pro-life and pro-choice. I believe that no one should kill their child but at the same time it is not my body, not my child, not my money and, therefore, I have no right to judge them or choose for them. This book includes both sides: https://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=_GnZCwAAQBAJ&oi=fnd&pg=PR9&dq=abortion+pro+choice&ots=VErIoiBelo&sig=XZHYVSNSTU2ie1YqWgacZaqMxiM#v=onepage&q=abortion%20pro%20choice&f=false
      I don’t want to come off as biased, but I truly believe you cannot say that abortion is bad unless you are a woman with an unwanted pregnancy that doesn’t know what to do.

      • Hi Natalie, I really appreciate this comment. I’m glad that I got a neutral response from somebody with a differing opinion, rather than somebody who has a strong opinion on either side. I know that as a male I may not have the ability to understand all the factors that play into the choice of getting an abortion, but from my point of view, I do think there are alternatives, such as adoption. I also enjoyed passages from the book that you linked because they also took more of a neutral stance, while still maintaining their opinion.

        I don’t like getting political often, because it often leads to unneeded arguments, but abortion is a topic I had been against long before I knew anything about either political party. The main reason I believe that it should be treated as a life is because recent science shows that not only does the fetus have it’s own brain patterns, but it also has it’s own unique DNA. https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/002398.htm . I personally feel like with information such as this, we should remove abortion from the world of politics, and focus more on the science of the situation. Thanks again for posting the comment, and have a nice day!
