Limiting the Need for Abortion: But Why?
As the abortion topic seems to be circling a decent amount I thought I'd pose a question that doesn't seem to make sense to me. This question is directed at those who are pro-choice but would never do it themselves or want a lot of effort put into reducing the supposed need for them.
My question is, "Why?" Why does it matter that there are so many abortions? Why would it matter if a woman has multiple abortions? Of all the discussions on the topic the pro-choice supporters seem to put the developing baby in the category of a non-person. As a clump of cells that are of no more import than skin cells or such (at least that's my impression). If this is so then the only reason not to have abortions to any degree that people want is that the actual abortion procedure is unhealthy for the mother, especially if it's done multiple times. So where is the consitency?
To me this desire to limit hints of an understanding that the reasons to allow abortion are not so solidly lodged in your thinking. To me it speaks of a nagging moral dilemma that is buried in the subconscious.
I'm interested as to what is the thought process that creates what appears to be a dichotomy. Thanks for any contributions.
