The fetus is part of the womans body until it can survive on its own (viable). As our technology become more & more advance, hopefully fetus viability age getting younger and younger. The law protects both the right of the mother and the right of a viable fetus.
I would question the fact that illegal abortion is unhelathy, but prolife people prefers to illegalizing abortion.
I think this question is intentioned well, but it is not legally viable. It also will not do an end around to accomplish the goals of pro life.
The issue properly framed must focus on the human life involved. The unborn child. The moment you switch to an argument of fathers rights, you obfuscate the life of the unborn by arguing it indirectly.
The argument of a woman’s right to control her body, and not have the state usurp that right is not an argument without merit. Pro life argues it is outweighed. Not non existent. The fathers right is subordinated by biological reality to the mothers because the state ultimately exercises control over the mothers body not the fathers. The court is interested in the states exercise of it’s power. Legal issue not moral one.
The unborn child life is not the only life involved.
Most abortion is because of adultery.
If we follow how our bible frame this issue, we know that biological father who offend marriage by sleeping with other mans wife, this biological father, should not be given any right whatsoever to claim any position of fatherhood of the child he placed under other man’s house. It is not DNA that is important in bringing up a child. It is the love within the home.
Consequently, if there is anyway to uphold such fatherhood right of the husband, it may be possible to stop the degradation of culture that tolerate adulterous behavior.
It is too convenient to give equal parenting right simply because a man able to “sprinkle” his dna to other mans house and then he get somewhat fatherhood status based on biology. If he do it by offending legal right of other man, then he has no legal standing for fatherhood right despite the child has his dna. The owner of the house has the right to decide what to do with the child, in order to keep their home (marriage) safe.
There is no evidence to support that the majority of abortions are a result of adultery.
I believe there are sources out there that provide other statistics…generally if someone seeking an abortion is married, or not married. Whether the pregnancy was intended or accidental. Socio-economic status of individuals seeking abortion, etc.
There is no meaningful study that indicates if the pregnancy was conceived from an adulterous relationship.
Absolutely correct. And earlier, I posted data (perhaps on another thread?) that sows if there is a correlation between abortion and poverty, it is a negative correlation – as poverty goes up, abortion goes down. That study did not include data from the Obama administration, when there were more people living below the poverty level than there had been for generations. And guess what?
