hmm actually from what i have read over population is more of a problem.
the world has little left that is still belonging to the world. most we humans took and destroyed.
there is a good point that agent smith makes in the matrix
he said humans are like viruses they move from area to area and destroy every thing along the way, sucking all of the resources and manipulating them for the worse.
thats we are doing.
even obama started globally funding abortions because too many countries are too overcrowded, because the girls in africa can't afford or maintain a healthy life. its not just in the us its everywhere.
in china you have to kill your first born baby. this world is on its way to overcrowding.
this world is already beginning to be "overpopulated"
That example could apply to contraceptives equally well...
Not to fit a mold,
Not to join a trend,
Not to follow a crowd
But yeah, I agree, overpopulation is a very serious problem which most people don't realise. There's more humans on Earth than the planet has the resources to support, and it's only going to get worse.

that being said, i'm pro-abortion. if the situation calls for it, a woman should indeed have every right to choose. i'm in high school, and one of my best friends just had an abortion because she happens to be going out with an idiot, and an unhealthily horny idiot at that.

I said most cases. If the person was raped than I understand
I got nothing...
This thread again? Didn't we suck this dry before the forum crashed?
I have compiled three common arguments against abortion. Debate as necessary.
"Boethiah, when a man and a woman have sex, the baby is in the womb!"
The fetus inside the mother is exactly what the name says it is. It's a FETUS. It's just a collection of cells. Before a certain point, an Abortion should be legal. You won't be terminating a child, you will be terminating a bunch of cells. ( For example, if you're 8 1/2 months pregnant and decide for an abortion, tough toenails, it's already developed into a child)
"Boethiah, what about potential?"
Pfft. What does that even mean? If I don't impregnate a woman right now, I am ruining the potential for a baby. The fetus cannot think for itself before a certain point. You won't be killing anything that's human yet.
"Boethiah, it's against my religion!"
Good for you, but why should your religion control everyone else?
Thank you kindly.
