Abortion is a difficult subject for many.
The conservative belief is that a fetus is a child, a life, and abortion is murdering them. The liberal belief is that it’s nothing more than a bunch of cells, which won’t be missed. There are counter arguments for both of them, such as if a few cells can be considered a life, why aren’t sperm and eggs considered alive as well? They become human too. Does that make masturbation murder as well?
Similarly, if a bunch of cells aren’t a life, then why are humans considered alive? We are, after all, just a bunch of cells.
There are further intricacies of this argument, for example when the fetus is the result of incest, rape, pedophilia, or all three. In this case, it was all three.
It wasn’t even about the ethics of abortion, merely the laws preventing it.
It was an expensive, damaging, and scarring process.
This could have been prevented easily.
Regardless of right wing or left wing, in this situation, the girl was the victim.
And of course, this doesn’t justify all cases of abortion, but it does put into question the ethics of having anti-abortion laws.
