So, what are your thoughts on legalizing cocaine and heroin?
I'd say they're too completely different things. A legal abortion is not harmful to the woman, and does not affect anyone else. However, cocaine and heroin kill, and often affect those around the addict also. While I don't care if one person wants to take the drug, when that starts negatively affecting families, then it becomes a problem. The difference between abortion and legalisation of drugs are vast.
pro choice, but what if a girl was rapped, and became pregnant, it's really something you have to think about.
Raoe just reiterates why everyone should be Pro-choice - why abortion needs to be legal. If abortion was illegal, except for rape, which I've seen many pro-lifers suggest, all that would happen is you'd see an increase in the amount of people reporting rape - how would you decide who was telling the truth? Rape is hard enough to prove anyway, when a lot of girls start lying just to have an abortion it becomes impossible.
Not to mention, a trial, especially for rape, can take over a year to come to court. An abortion is a bit late then. There is no way abortion can be legal "just for rape".
I like bringing this up and getting women really pissed off...
Abortion is legal, and I'm not going to go against that. However, I think it is somewhat irresponsible today when there are other birth control measures (condoms, pill, surgical procedures like vasectomies) available. I'd much rather drop $10 on a pack of jimmies.
I agree it's irresponsible, especially those who take no prcautions at all. I'm on the pill, and make sure to use condoms every time I have sex, it's basic to me. However, contraception fails, and people forget. Interestingly, the people most likely to have an abortion are those in their late 20s to early 30s, as opposed to teenage girls, who many people like to speak negatively about in terms of abortion.
