The views of the pro life and pro choice people in the debate of abortion

Religion should not influence our laws.

That statement begs a more fundamental question - what is the unborn? If the unborn is in fact a human being, then we can't permit abortion simply on the basis that Christianity opposes it. Laws against murder and stealing are based on the 10 Commandments. Which one of these would you like to toss?

Arguments in favour of abortion

The truth is that killing children in utero violates the natural law, not just Christian teaching. If something is true, it remains true, regardless of who agrees with it. Should we stop teaching times tables in school because the Church agrees with arithmetic?

  • With the choice of adoption and the many support programs which exist today, young women or teens can postpone their educational plans but still achieve them;
  • A pregnancy to a woman is perhaps one of the most determinative aspects of her life.
