I tell you what, I read number three and stopped. Anyone who states that as a reason why abortion shouldn't be legal is a big, sopping wet hairball.

This is exactly how I felt about the first list. I don't take my list anymore seriously than I think the other list should be taken. However, logically a newborn child will have more potential than a childbearing mother giving birth to that child. I think most reasonable people will agree. Not to say that a mother has low potential, just less than a human being starting out. Most of us start out in this world with our fullest potential. We are then either nourished and flourish. And in some cases, people are abused and often times incapable of becoming what potential we once held. We also begin life free of a history of either good or bad choices. Therefore, the potential for success however you might measure that is at it's peak.
Cons of Abortion
Abortion does not give the child that is in the womb a chance at life. It is wrong and looked down upon by a lot of religions.
Some women use abortion as a type of birth control. They sleep with men and do not use protection and think nothing of it to go to the clinic as many as five times in their life to have an abortion.
A con against abortion is the nagging thought that a woman went to a clinic, had an abortion, and thus the world was prevented from seeing the birth of the only person capable of attaining a leadership role and initiating a peace accord between warring factions in the Middle East, thus preventing decades of strife and not a nice act. A stable home life is not a guarantee of talent, and illegitimate children have shown themselves to be very bright on occasion, Lawrence of Arabia for one.
Another con, is that the child who never lived, may have invented a cure for cancer (had he lived). Think about that, if youâre for abortion, the next time you walk into a hospital to have a mysterious growth on your breast checked out.
Having an abortion always lessens your chances for having children later in life. Even though it doesn't happen to many women, you could be the one to miss out on your once in a life time chance to have your baby.
There are other options. You can give your baby up for adoption and give your child a chance at life.
If looked at at the religious aspect, God gave you the opportunity to have a baby for a reason, you should not throw that chance away.
If you laid down in the bed and weren't responsible, you should take responsibility for your actions and take care of the child you created.
Abortion is the lazy way out.
If you have an abortion you will always wonder what if, and feel guilty for the rest of your life about the child you could have had.
Your "cons" make me laugh.
You could have aborted the next Stalin, Hitler, Bush.
You could have aborted someone who would have created a horrible biological weapon.
Abortion does not "always lessen your chance for having children". Ridiculous.
My religion says purple unicorns are in charge, and they are okay with abortion.
Taking responbility sometimes means getting an abortion. This is not a hard a concept.
Abortion is not a lazy way out. Cut and pasting crappy editorials and posting them on forums is.
There are reasonable arguments against abortion. I suggest you find those.
To each their own opinion! Not using your own words and copying and pasting in general is a bit lazy wouldn't you say?? I suggest you not do it then criticize someone else for it. And the pros of what I posted made me laugh. Like I said, to each their own!
Really, I preferred it when you didn't respond to me. At the very least, address what I say with some logic and relevance. I stated facts, you stated falsehoods.
Think about what "to each their own" means before you post it as a prolife advocate on an abortion debate forum.
I think posters like meblonde and cowboys really show off that stereotype of the uneducated prolife advocate.
You did not adress what I said either. Did you?? You question the fact that I cut and pasted.. Yet you do the same thing right? What makes what you stated Facts? Is it Because you believe in the site you copied from?? Where is the logic in that?
I did address what you said, point by point. Did you read it?
Common sense, logic, & history are on my side. Your 'cons' aren't even true. Again, there are legit arguments against choice; why not find those?
I'm sorry, I thought we were talking about abortion, and your silly list of cons. Were you shown the error of your ways so badly that now you attempt to diverge?
Did I "condemn" you? Is that a buzz word on the forum or what? "Here ye, here ye, meblonde is condemned to thy place of eternal sulfur!"
All you can do is copy and paste, you couldn't even come up with your own argument, that's all you do all over the forum, and it was a a point of humor if you go back and read it. Have you no mind? I do it one time and what? You harp on it like a vulture?
Are you one of those brainwashed warmongers who voted for the person in office now?
You know, when I originally came on here, I made it a point to be kind to my neighbors...then I realized that my online neighbors are really just the same people as my real life neighbors. Complete selfish jackwipes without a shred of decency, and they get what they deserve.
Here's a story...
Last week, I was working up in my studio. A shrieking of brakes filled the air, followed by shouts and the most pitiful screaming I had ever heard. I froze...was that a dog or a child? Looking out the window, I saw a crowd across the street and a small dog limping out of the road. I flew down the stairs and out the door. People were standing there, staring at this animal- A five month old German shepard mix puppy was laying on the sidewalk, trying to walk, it's rear leg mangled, blood coming out of it's mouth, . I am a squeamish person, but I held it together while these morons pointed in disgust. It kept trying to walk, and I yelled at them to not allow it to walk, but they were incapable of getting over their fear. I held the dog down, found out whose it was, and told her that she needed to take it to a vet right now. She didn't have a vet. I said fine, I'll take it to the vet er. Flash forward...neighbor (a reluctant passenger, I might add) and dog in my car. Neighbor did not have dog on leash, did not have gate shut, only had it for a week. Flash forward to vet. The vet, whom disgusts me, had dogs intubated laying on floors, had a gerbil a young assistant was trying to revive by imitating a "yo yo" with it. She took one look at the dog, and ran to put together not a concoction of painkillers for this pitiful creature, but a bill. $1000 at least, and probably lose his leg.
Well, of course this lady didn't "have a thousand dollars to spend on a dog she only had a week". She looked at me. I was astonished. I'm a student, first of all, secondly, how could she ask me to spend a thousand dollars on an animal I didn't even know after she just made a similar statement. For the record, if I had the money, I would have paid for it, and sent her in a cab home, and had a three legged down. Would've gone nicely with my three legged cat.
So, they had to put the dog down.
The clincher to me was that this neighbor of mine "couldn't stand" to be with the puppy when they put him down. I hardly think a creature should leave the world without a person who knew it, and I wanted to yell at the lady to be strong, it's not about her needs right now. But I know some people can't take it. So I stayed.
So then, the problem is disposal. She didn't want to bother. And then she asked if she could smoke in my car.
Long story short, puppy is buried in my backyard, neighbor never said an froikin' word of thanks, and I don't like people once again.
Thanks for reading. Sorry it's sooooo off subject; I know I've been sounding like a gigantic 'woman who is letting her hormones get the better of her' lately and I wanted to explain a little bit why.
