Or that just because certain things are dangerous doesn't mean we should prevent people from making their own decisions about what they want to do with themselves, just that we encourage them to make different decisions while trying to allow them to make their own decisions as safely as possible? Its off topic, but with that thinking, we should let any form of self harm legal including illegal substances.

We can reasonably determine when a pregnancy is unwanted or will be detrimental to the mother.  There are a lot of children who still make it to live birth that have horrible disfigurements, defects, and mutations. We are better at determining how viable a fetus is than the body itself. We can also screen for factors that the body can't screen for, like financial viability. I don't think that it's fair to expect someone who can't afford a child to be forced to have their child just so they can give it away for adoption, which is actually a great way to break even further an already broken foster care system. Let's make abortion illegal, and then put every unwanted child that results from it in state services. Am I the only one who sees a problem with that part? Why would we want more children to be wards of the state rather than less? Ultimately it comes down to "Is abortion the same thing as infanticide?" and I think the answer is no, because I don't think that a fetus is the same as an infant. I don't think a child is the same as an adult. Different stages of development have different rights, and I don't see the earliest stages of fetal development (I'm sure you'll remember that I don't agree with late term abortions) as having these rights, I don't think the "child's rights" argument even starts to come into play until the child is at least somewhat reminiscent of a person. I mean, if you don't even have the neural pathways for basic sensory perception, in what meaningful sense are you human? Humans are entirely sensory beings. A human that doesn't experience anything is hardly a human at all, despite our genetic relation. I don't think that aborting an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy early on is the same as taking it to full term and then killing it. I think it's silly to make that comparison.  You're talking about selectively breeding human beings. If so, I wouldn't be born. Well...I can understand to a certain degree, but it's still not a reason to terminate. I'd rather be born into a foster home than never be born at all. My friends who have been in foster care agree.  Development doesn't matter. At least not in this situation. A fetus has stem cells. A stem cell is like a blueprint for the rest of the cells you will ever have. If they have this, they have the ability to become human beings. So now you're taking away what is going to happen naturally.
