    So that justifies killing another life? No, it doesn't.

    not really sure what you're asking. i believe men play a certain role in life, as do women.
    a woman has a power all her own, but her power isn't the same as a man. that's not saying her
    power is any less, though.
    i think that women who try to play the role of a man lose this power and become something less than
    their full potential dictates.

    You know, children, actual people, are dying all over the world every second of the day and there's not even near the outrage over that as over killing ZEFs. People seriously need to get their priorities straight. A ZEF is not a person.

    I believe that the unborn are actual people. I think the killings around the world are an atrocity. Regardless, straw men that attempt at delegitimizing an opinion are illogical. A ZEF may not be a person in your opinion just as slaves weren't considered to be persons by white slave owners and the pre-civil war laws. I think the philosophical grey areas of defining personhood to not justify killing human life that isn't a "person" in a individuals opinion. All areas of history where personhood was defined and human life was enslaved or killed legally has always been an atrocity upon human rights, abortion is no different.

    It's not a strawman, it's perspective. When so many children suffer and die, those atrocities need to be stopped. Those that aren't born yet are not the most important priority to any logical person.

    Now THAT is a strawman. Comparing the unborn to slaves. . .

    My "opinions" do not deny women sovereignty over their own bodies while simultaneously turning them into unwilling incubators.

    Re: Is Abortion wrong?

    The right wing continues to impose its definitions of morality upon the rest of society. Thankfully most people don't care enough to debate whether abortion is right or wrong. They have acknowledged that abortion is: a private issue concerning a woman and her right to choose whether or not she wants to reproduce. My theory is that the right wing will quietly die down one day and abortion will no longer be an issue discussed by human beings who understand that not everybody is a zealous adherent to judeo-christian dogma.

    Yes. Abortion is wrong. But the alternative is sometimes worse. There isn't always a right answer. Sometimes you have to choose between evils. That's real life.
