Omg is this post fucking serious.
Abortion is a responsible choice if you don’t want to be a parent?
Murder is always a choice, it is never a “responsible” one.
Abortion isn’t murder. Murder involves an unauthorized killing of a person with premeditation and malice.
While abortion is planned, fetuses are not sentient (which means they are not people) and abortion is done under the authorization of the pregnant person out of many emotions, not simply malice. (if that’s even involved.)
"When abortion is planned" = premeditation.
Premeditation isn’t enough to make it murder.
Pretty sure a fetus doesn’t “authorize” it’s own killing.
A fetus has not authority over the pregnant person’s body.
The act of abortion is malicious in its very nature, it ALWAYS seeks violence/harm against the unborn.
All surgeries are violent in nature. Abortions are not chosen out of hatred for the fetus. It’s not, “oh, I hate this fetus so much, I’m going to kill it!”
It’s more like, “I don’t want to be pregnant anymore. In order to do that, I need to remove the fetus.”
Sentience deciding personhood is debatable, as is when a person becomes sentient in the first place. Also, your statement completely ignores late-term abortions which are pretty undisputedly performed on fully sentient human beings. And no, late-term abortions are not “very rare”. I could have gotten one in my last pregnancy just because of my extreme “morning sickness”.
Fetuses become sentient through birth.
Late term abortions are not killing a sentient person. Until birth, the fetus is not sentient. Is there capability for sentience at that point? Yes, however they’re not born, they’re not sentient. Birth shoots adrenaline through both parent and fetus, and “awakens” the fetus from it’s developmental slumber.
Either way, simple existence doesn’t give the fetus the right to use a body without consent. Pregnant person’s body, pregnant person’s decision. (No, the fetus does not have rights to it’s body, because it’s not able to sustain itself bodily.)
That just may be the most idiotic statement I have ever heard.
