Lord knows I’m on the fence about so many things, but I’m so much more inclined to consider the arguments of people who generally aren’t assholes.
Scrolling through atheism tag, 90% atheism
Scrolling through religion and Christianity tags, about 50/50 atheism and Christianity.
Why would one need counselling for a procedure that’s supposed to be no different than removing a rotten tooth.
Why would it not be an easy decision.
Maybe because it’s not at all like removing a tooth.
I understand pro-choicers get upset because they want women to have control over their bodies. I also understand that pro-lifers get upset because they view a fetus as deserving of certain rights and protections.
But when either party starts throwing around death threats/wishes, then I stop taking your argument seriously, no matter which side of the fence you’re on.
On another note, the main point of the debate is whether or not the fetus is to be considered human life. If it’s not, then the decision is a personal one, if it is, then the decision becomes a moral/ethical debate.
The above point rests on the assumption that all human life deserves to be protected in the first place. I’ve met a few people who disagree with this assumption. I’ve no clue how one empirically proves humans are entitled to equal rights by virtue of being alive, so when I encounter those people I honestly just back away slowly, nodding my head.
