What are the pros and cons of abortion?

I'm trying to see if I support the right for a woman to have access to an abortion or not. What are some pros and cons?

    pros- a woman who is unable or unwilling to take care of a child is able to continue her normal life (which could include finishing school, avoiding eviction, or not losing her job), less children in the foster system, less children being abused by unhappy parents or bad foster homes, fetuses donated to stem cell research, women having access to safe doctors who will perform the abortion rather than risking themselves by doing it illegally

    cons- i’ve heard of abortions affecting a woman’s fertility, but i don’t know the basis of these claims and it’s ultimately the woman’s decision

    at the end of the day, an abortion is the act of removing undeveloped stem cells from a woman’s womb. they haven’t formed a sentient human being yet, and it’s comparable to your finger bleeding from a cut. the cells exit your body, and no human life is lost.

      For the fertility thing, it is just as likely complications of a birth could cause secondary infertility.

    Pros:

    Fewer babies born in an already overpopulated (or rather over-consuming part of the) world

    Fewer responsibilities for people who - for whatever reason - did not use contraceptives.

    More young women getting and finishing an education

    Pro of LEGALISED abortion: fewer young women dying in unofficial ones

    Cons: they require medical personnel that could be doing other things

    Not really a right.

    It is a privilege granted to women by corrupt "judges". They cant call em that because of the wording of the 14th amendment.

    The pro is each state can decide the issue. Federal government has no jurisdiction to weigh in one way or the other.

    10th amendment

    Con is if you can be convinced that abortion is common and acceptable, then nothing stops government from creating a fony "crisis" (population or such) and moving the needle further, like in China.

    Look, the bottom line is, Women, now have the right to make their own decisions on reproduction. Cons want to take this freedom for women, away. Right now, women have the right to chose what is best for them. Is this a free country, or not?

    Abortion is the killing of an innocent living human being. Should anyone be allowed to do that? What physical change happens that makes it no longer OK to kill a baby? Think about it.

      a fetus is an undeveloped clump of cells, the development of that fetus creates a baby. a fetus is made of the same stem cells found in our bone marrow. a stem cell is a cell that has yet to turn into a skin, blood, etc cell. all animals form from these stem cells, they aren’t inherently human.

    People's personal health and choices of what happens to their own body is not a kind of thing to levy pros and cons against, you commie.

      It's one of the biggest political topics in American history. I'm sure most people would think that it's something to "levy pros and cons against".

    There are no pros- the woman is usually filled with regret and the baby is dead. Every child deserves a shot at life. Liberals say "oh the kid might be poor" but I grew up poor and I'm middle class now.

    With a dozen forms of contraception and Plan B now being sold over the counter ,,, there is little excuse to conceive a fetus only to kill it .

      I think people should be more careful with birth control BUT it is not for me to punish some woman by forcing her to give birth.
