Also, I refuse to believe a painless abortion of an insentient fetus is even REMOTELY comparable to the horrendous suffering of millions of slaves. One dies painlessly; whether you believe it moral or not, it dies painlessly. The other though, faces a lifetime of torture. Comparing them is ridiculous. It's like me comparing a suicide to the holocaust. Both can be considered bad, but saying they're basically the same thing is pretty insulting.
You can't throw a person into a blender and make paper.
And you know what was written on paper? That's right, the Declaration of Independence.
Actually, the Declaration was written on vellum, so I guess that's a bad example. Which begs the question, why use goat skin instead of human skin? Because without skin, humans tend to die. And the sole purpose of humans dying is to compost and become fertilizer for trees.
Trees > humans
plants provide the oxygen you breath, how the fuck are we more important?
Not having sex is causing someone not to live as well. Hell, not raping every woman you see is preventing someone from being born. Is that considered killing? Should I be arrested for not raping women?
Besides, the fetuses that are aborted are ones that would harm the gene pool anyways. People that get abortions are normally poor, uneducated women who had sex before they were ready without the proper protection. The children born to these women would likely become equally uneducated and poor due to both their family situation and, more importantly, to their genetics.
If you look at the situation completely objectively, you'll realize that the money needed to raise a child in a developed country could save more than one living child from starvation in a developing country. And these living children actually feel pain from their slow death. Of course, I realize that the money saved from not raising a child are definitely not sent to developing countries, but the point is the money needed to raise those children could be used for far better things.
Abortion causes no pain to the aborted baby. Realistically, it isn't actually killing, it is the prevention of birth. Besides, this world is overpopulated as it is.
Also, the majority of people that consider abortion would provide a poor home for their children, and they simply recognize that fact. Married adults with a steady income will rarely visit abortion clinics.
Anyways, my thought is that if you aren't ready for a child you choose use birth control pills or condoms to lessen the likeliness of pregnancy. But if those don't work, it is your decision whether you should bring a child into this world.
Everyone that supports enforcing Christian values into the government, is Christian.
How I think of it is that God doesn't exist, so it doesn't matter anyway

Rosa Parks could give Rebecca some lessons in seat choosing. She knew how to pick a seat and stick with it.
