2. present your arguments for your beliefs
- While I would accept some degree of regulation, as abortion should be as huge of a decision as actually having a kid in the first place, I think more regulation makes it more difficult for people with legitimate reasons to do what they need to do.
- You're a dick if you intentionally go around to get pregnant and abort each time.
- Being raped absolutely does not mean you have to have a child. By that point, it's just another link in a series of true fuckups.
- I don't believe teenagers should be having kids at all
- If you made a legitimate mistake, you shouldn't be forced to put someone else through tons of unnecessary trouble because you fucked up
- I think a mother takes precedence for survival over somebody who I do not quantify as being born yet, and that this is ultimately up to the mother
- I think the mother holds the power in each case to make her own decisions
3. give primary arguments against your position as well as your counterarguments and, for a challenge
- Someone else can present these for me, as I don't consider it my job >.> willing to reply to every point posed.
4. explain some of the underlying presuppositions or more basic beliefs that lead to your position and then follow them to their logical conclusion when applied to other moral/ethical issues or other areas of life.
- I think people should generally be able to do as they want to do in life
- I can morally detach myself and speak in terms of humanity as a whole while completely discarding the troubles of individuals, on a case by case basis
- I take a detached view for unborn children, that is, I do not consider them born until they are separate from the mother. Until that time, the mother is the holder of the baby, and thus holder of basically all rights relative to this
