Regardless of your views on whether its okay to end a human life.

do we agree that abortion is ending a human life?
>>
yeah i dont see how you can convince yourself otherwise. I think it should be legal but like people have to undestand their choice and come to terms with the morality involved
>>
Yep

>>767712437
why should it be legal?

Uh, no.
>>
>>767712574
morally speaking yes
this becomes much more important when dealing with people , not chickens
>>
>>767712568
because if it could not survive outside the womb, I do not consider it a living being. It is still a parasite.
>>
>>767712608
the analogy is nonsensical.
seeds arent in any way the same as foeti

>>767712640
Morally speaking, no.

One is a sentient living thing, the other isn't.

what if i was in a terrible car accident and rendered unable to survive unassisted.

viability is not a fixed position.
>>
>>767712696
i understand what you mean, i just think its too clumsy to be applicable.
>>
>>767712713
If you cannot survive unassisted and no one is willing to provide resources to keep you alive, then letting you die is not an immoral act.

why is sentience so important to legal protection?... that can be removed from a living person and they are still legally protected

debateable

but even so, abortion is not "letting the thing die"..its active

Can you agree that every time you eat youve ended life so you vold live. Death is part of life. Get used to it

Can we kill 1 year old kids too?

those fuckers wouldn't survive without help.
can we kill them anyway we wanted?
>>
>>767712713
The situation does dictate if you are trying to save a fetus yes, but we are talking about abortion. This is different. Abortion is in most cases a choice. I would still argue that in the car accident the fetus is not a human yet, but the choice was not made to abort it, but to save it because of an accident to the host being
>>
>>767712847

they should make an anti-abortion movie called 49 days later
>>
>>767712325
heres my two cents
if abortion was murder, then, it would be called murder
abortion isnt ending a human life per se, its just stopping it before its even begun, and i think you and i can agree that a fetus is not equal to a full grown human, not in terms of human rights, but in terms of concept
honestly, i dont think abortion is either good or bad, if you want to kill the motherfucker, go ahead, but its still something alive, not a human, but alive, i think the best thing to do is to use contraceptive to avoid this whole bitch before it even happens
If i got a girl pregnant, and i didnt want the goddamn baby, id definitely abort it, just saying, i think its better to kill a baby rather than bringing it into an environment where i cant take proper care of it, if i did have the resources to have a child, id have it, but its not about inconvenience, its about sparing the kid of a life not worthy of a human being, thats the reason i think abortion is ok
>>
>>767712967
just because its alive it has a soul?
thats bull
>>
>>767712964
so, pretty much like nazis

i can round up anyone who needs any type of assistance to live and kill em all.

babies, elderly, cripples, retards, etc...

cool
>>
>>767713038
a rose by any other name ... termminology doesnt determine reality.

i think that human life begins at conception , its the only way to be sure

it cant be alive, and human but not a human life.

nor is inconvenience a legal defense against the ending of a human life
>>
>>767713149
anyone who doesnt meet an arbitrary standard
>>
>>767713038
well put
>>
>>767713021
I do agree, in my consideration, a fetus could survive outside the womb at one point for a being far earlier than another. The point of it being considered a human cannot be set because of this. Just a general guideline. I wholeheartedly think that abortion should only be allowed to save the mothers life though. If you made the choice to have sex sometimes the consequences of this are becoming pregnant. You should have to give birth to the baby. I'm not saying you should have to keep it, adoption is there for a reason.
>>
>>767713038
There's no point talking about actual human beings and realistic situations. Such things have no currency with the lifefag. Their minds work in childish analogies and biblical metaphors.
>>
>>767713038
what is the big difference between being in a womb or outside a womb?

if you cant survive on your own, you should be killed or abandoned.

seriously, no real difference.
>>
>>767713038
It's a living being, whether you want to call it a clump of human cells, or an underdeveloped human fetus it's still ending human life. It's literally murder no matter how you spin it. I'm fine with it since humans are all trash beings regardless, but fuck off. I'm tired of these liberal pussies that are too scared to say it's murder. Say it's murder and stand by it stop being so fucking retarded.
>>
>>767713237
excuse me
i more or less agree..
not never... but not on demand
>>
>>767713189

the standard is convenience.

if someone is going to be an inconvenience, they should be killed.
>>
>>767712325
You can't end a life if it hasn't started yet.
>>
>>767713149
if it cannot sustain its own life, as in breathing and staying alive. food is another topic. If it cannot feasibly live on its own outside the womb.
>>
>>767713273
strawman.
im talking legally and scientifically not theologically
>>
>>767713370
at least youre being consistent.

its the gymnastics that bother me
>>
>>767712574
A fetus is not an egg. Humans have eggs as well and they flush them out every month. When people eat a chicken egg, they're basically eating the chicken's period. It's unfertilized.
>>
>>767713366
well put. and far shorter than what I said too lol
>>
>>767713399
il go end michael shumacher then.
>>
>>767713399
so whenever a person needs help to sustain his own life, you should kill him? have fun being in a coma...
>>
>>767713506
or just being old.
its a slippery slope.
>>
>>767713476
you don't have to if he cannot survive on his own. he will just die after a bit
>>
>>767713541
but abortion isnt passive. thats the point
>>
>>767712668
If you want to get pedantic, parasites are different species than the host, so a fetus isn't technically a parasite no matter what you think of it.
>>
>>767712494
Intellectually dishonest and avoiding the question.
>>
>>767713506
I would rather die than be in a coma or have ALS or something like these. I do not wish to be a useless burden on society and resources. If I am useless let me die
>>
>>767713399
so you cant abort a baby with lungs developed enough to breathe on its own?
>>
I mean if you're pro life, you're pretty much pro- death.
>>
>>767713321
dude, im not liberal, fucking hate those guys, seriously, you think a libtard would enter 4chan?
its alive anyways, but honestly, the baby years, youre just a poop machine, i think youre not worthy of human treatment until you can speak, read and write, when you can actually express yourself, i dont mean to say that children below 7 years are worthless, but come on, is that really a person?

a baby in the womb cant walk
a baby that's 1 year old cant walk

so what. they are in the same condition. unable to sustain themselves.

why cant I kill a 1 year old if I decide it's going to ruin my life?

In one room you have 100 babies in the other 100 embryos which do you save

errrhhh, i think humans can have a soul, but you have to earn it, i think they just dont give those things away like candy

>>767713775
yes, however calling it a fetus is acknowledging it is not a human. I can kill an animal with no repercussions because it is not human. they even give me a license to do so every year.

If the embryos are outside the women I guess they're a lost cause.

cuz one day, it will be able to walk, just put it up for adoption if its such a pain, besides, killing a baby IS murder, abortion isnt

>>767713759
By saying the woman has the right to abort you are saying that her bodily autonomy is more valuable than the life of the human inside of her. If she wants to take thalidomide, is that OK? If she has a newborn and would rather be out partying (bodily autonomy and all that), can she just leave the newborn at home to starve?
>>
>>767712325
>do we agree that abortion is ending a human life?

so what if it is?

Whether you rationalize it as just cells, or human life......does it matter?

The funny (re: fucking retarded) thing about the "Pro-Life" side of the abortion argument is the skewed value system of what "life" is, how "life" is defined.

If you want to rationalize abortion 'ending human life', okay.....so what's it to you then?

Who are you to determine what "life" is, if the long term ramifications of birthing that child is opposite of that your notion?
>>
>>767713878
moral impulse suggests the babies but moral impulse is not the same as rational decision making.

that situation is an unrealistic diad and can be reversed easily, similar to the people on the train track problem

>>767713759
bodily autonomy is a fabrication. you don't get to choose what you do with your own body in all instance.

everyone has limits to freedom

a baby in the womb could be put up for adoption
a 1 year old can be put up for adoption

I don't want to put the 1 year old up for adoption
I think it would be better to kill it.

If I stick a knife in a preggo woman and kill the kid they would try me for manslaughter or murder

why?

If it was me alone, the adults. If I save the babies and have no help in the future, most if not all will surely die of neglect and starvation.

How is that relevant? Just about everyone would choose the babies, but that doesn't make the embryos any less deserving of life.

No you dumb fuck I am saying if that choice was easy for you to make then maybe that says something about the value of a embryo vs a real life

No. I know this is bait, but anyone who really believes that a zygote, which has no fucking concept of life is alive, prior to being BORN the act of becoming alive is fucking retarded. I find it hilarious that you sub-human morons are of the same political spectrum that supports the death penalty, taking insurance from children, money from the poor to give to the wealthy (ie literally the new tax plan and everyone knows it), ending after school benefits for kids, increasing prison sentences, deportation EVEN if the child was brought here against their will and did nothing wrong, and god help them if they dare be born a minorty or a women, then they should bow to you as you strip their rights away, including that of a womans own body. I could be here all day you fucking incel cucks who want the government out of things until it upsets you, who want free speech, until it upsets you. You cuckhold retards are all that is wrong with life and you are too stupid even to see what worthless fucking concubines you are. Fucking waste of DNA.

In this case, birth control methods that prevent the implantation of fertilized eggs end human life.

Life has not yet begun in either case. We measure our age from birth because before that our viability is tenuous.

if the cannot survive without medical assistance, they should be let go and not be considered a human any more. they are a burden to society. just being sick or old does not make you inhuman. if your brain no longer works you cannot live without a feeding tube and breathing machine. at that point you are not a human.

when it should be legal:

when it should not be legal:
>later stages of pregnancy or when it puts mother in significant danger without proper reason
>after birth

Abortion is intrusive procedure to mother's body and even more so the later it's done. There are so many ways to regulate abortion - proper education on danger of it, only after approving by doctor from certain stage, after psychological testing when suspicion of abusing it... but it should be legal.

i think making exceptions leads to logical errors and is a slippery slope.

the only exception being a threat to the life of the mother. such as if she has cancer and treatment would kill the baby , etc etc

Short answer: NO

Most retards would not be able to survive on their own.
Left alone, they would die slowly.

It would be more humane to put them to sleep just like a dog.

You would support euthanizing a child with down syndrome? And you have no way to know if he would be a waste of time and money. Maybe something in his life kicks off another event that will have a profound positive impact on others. And maybe not. There's no way to know unless given the opportunity.

>>767715478
yes, because, a downie would not, and i want to make myself very clear on this, would NOT be a functioning member of society, not because he has a disability, but because, people wouldnt treat him like another human being, but an oblivious creature, they wouldnt be able to have jobs, or to start families, cuz theyre not human

The only successful "downies" I've ever seen is Corky, those casted with Johnny Knoxville in "The Ringer", and the Special Olympics themselves (which the Ringer was based off of).

And like acting and Olympics for normies,....they have a lottery winning chance at making it.

But UNLIKE normies, if you fail at your shot in Hollywood (for bit parts) or the Olympics, you don't get to fall back on meager slave-wage jobs, because those jobs get taken by failed normies (or immigrants); which brings up another topic "over-population".

So the question is, do you risk birthing and raising a downie baby to adulthood in the vain hope they'll make it? Or suffer pampering this kid forever?

Literally everyone argues if it is a life or not , a human or not ,mother's choice or not. What i think is really wrong here is how society forgot that the real/original purpose of having sex is reproduction. A fucking bitch or a stupid idiot who decided not to use anticonceptives because of how extremely horny they where now want to create excuses to get rid of such a big responsability without consecuences. If it alive or not does not change the monstruosity of the humanity

The "conscious" argument is retard logic.

If someone was in a medically induced coma and had a 99% chance of regaining consciousness, you couldn't kill him because he would ruin your life once he became conscious.

99% of fetuses will gain consciousness. You cant kill one because they are temporarily unconscious

Hey, Vsauce. Michael here.

What is... 'Life'? Well, it's complicated, is what it is. Merriam-Webster defines it as, 'the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body'. But wait... There's more. Merriam-Webster ALSO defines it as 'the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual'. That's where things get... Complicated.

Ya see, some people believe that abortion is ending a human life-- and in a literal, scientific sense, they're right. That should make this whole argument pretty simple, right? WRONG.

Those in favor of abortion view it differently-- a human's life hasn't 'started' until they're capable of experiencing the things that make us human. Joy, sadness, complex thought-- y'know, the reason we're even able to HAVE this debate. But that doesn't answer the question of who's right.

In the end, it's a complex question with a lot of complex answers that are all kind-of right and kind-of wrong. But let's change our perspective to the person HAVING the baby. Are they ready? Are they financially stable? Are they in a supportive relationship? When you think about it, having this baby could potentially destroy not ONLY the mother's life if she's unprepared, but the child's, as well. "Well, just give it up for adoption," I hear you saying. The truth of the matter is that the adoption system is FULL of kids, and if a child isn't adopted at the prime ages (around three months to three years old), their chances of ever getting adopted go down DRASTICALLY, often causing emotional issues within children who never get adopted. For those who do get adopted, however, the situation can potentially be worse. There are many people out there who abuse adoption services, providing foster care to as many kids as possible JUST to get money from the foster system so they don't have to work. This can leave kids without the resources they need to grow into a healthy adult.

Anyways check out The Curiosity Box.

Hey, Vsauce. Michael here, again.

Listen here you little shit, I didn't spend time typing up an explanation as to why it's such a heavily debated issue for you to chime in with your dumb little shit mouth and try to wipe away my hard work with nothing more than a 'Well I disagree'. You're lucky abortion isn't more widely accepted, because if your parents knew even a fraction of how dumb you'd end up being, they would have gone in with a coat hanger themselves. My whole livelihood is based around explaining complex shit and I wouldn't have made a video on this if it weren't.
>>
>>767717292
The perspective of the person having the abortion isn't relevant. It doesn't matter if she's ready, financially stable, in a supportive relationship, etc. Can she kill her toddler if those criteria aren't met? The question is whether or not the fetus is a valuable human life. If it's not, have an abortion for whatever reason you want.

Its like baking bread. You put dough in, you get bread out. But if you take the pan out early you get a sort of half baked mess.

When does dough become bread?
When does a fetus become a human life?
We can all agree it happens sometime in the oven, we just don't know exactly when. Honestly, I don't believe there IS an answer. We all have our opinions but in the end a fetus being a candidate for abortion can't survive outside the womb and turn into a proper, living human, the same way a pan of dough removed too early from the oven can't be converted into a delicious loaf of bread.

Sometime during the transition the dough becomes undercooked bread. Where is that line, I have no idea. All I know is I got a vasectomy so its never going to be a problem for me to worry about.

If you don't like abortion, dont do it. The same way nobody is making you drink a beer if you don't like it. If someone else wants to it in no way hurts you at all.

>>767714230
Underrated argument.

The cringelords in this discussion wouldn't so nonchalantly disregard the concept of abortion if it was their own fucking guts growing bloated and they had to poop the child out.

Intentionally ending a human life is wrong under almost all circumstances.

Premeditated abortion is invariably ending a human life in accordance with my understanding of "human life".

Plan B / morning after pill seems to be reasonable though.

Fuck feminist rights, I would rather protect the rights of an unborn child regardless of gender.

Shouldn't we err on the side of caution then when it comes to abortion? The child may be a valuable human life, it might not be. Would you throw someone in jail because they may or may not have commited a crime? You only do that after proving your case beyond a reasonable doubt.

To me it isn't a living being until it's born. As long as it's not born, it is part of a female body, and she has the right to decide what to do with her own body.

This is impossible for any doctor to say and incredibly rare and practially impossble the way you describe it, but I'll play your shitty little thought experiment.

Yes, it is OK and as far as I'm concerned preferable to pull the plug. I would never want to wake up a blank slate with no memories and the mind of a newborn only to have to learn everything again and die of old age by the time I'm aware and able enough to enjoy life. That sounds like a living hell.

Ending one human life vs fucking up two human lives that will probably not have a good influence on society and might fuck up other people's lives in the process, just because that teenage girl was forced to keep the baby and be a mum instead of going to college...

Yes abortion means ending a human life, it's still better than the alternative.

Also, guys always complain about the girlfriend getting pregnant and not leaving them a choice in whether to keep the baby, but prohibiting abortion robs them of their right to choose altogether. It doesn't just affect women.
