I'm pro-life myself, though this oddly has nothing to do with my Christian morals.
My issue with abortion lay in the term "conceived". That pretty much explains it all, for me.
Basically, why would I say no to abortion but not say that we should have as many babies as possible? As best as I can explain this, it's essentially that a life has been set in motion. It doesn't matter whether or not the life is sentient, what matters is that it is going to be.
, one of the arcs involves an interesting little debate/analogy about abortion. (SPOILERS!, if anyone cares...)
A character builds a statue/mud doll/thing, and like other characters do occasionally, intends to bring them to life. Someone comes along and knocks it over, destroying it. For a while I thought this was incredibly silly, and didn't think it counted for anything; then I realized that it did because the idea
of that person was created.
That was a pretty horrible attempt at explaining, and I left a ton out, but I will essentially just have to leave it at that.
One thing that the opposing side will bring up is the thought of a girl who wants to have an abortion for the sole reason that she does not want to have a baby.
I can see this happening, though the idea of abortion's use as a birth control method is ridiculous. To be honest, I actually have
a relative you aborted their baby specifically because they just didn't want it
. Hearing their explanation kind of freaked me out, so yeah, it does
It likely won't happen multiple times for a single person, but the reason it gets brought up is that one aborted child is bad enough.
