The rates of child abuse in foster homes is astonishing compared to non-foster homes. Development does matter. They have the ability but that doesn't mean they will, or should. Not every genetic combination is a viable one. Taking away a life that never starts isn't as bad as letting it start and then taking it away, or letting it start only to let them find themselves in a horrible situation. This is a generalization, but most of the people who get abortions aren't people who would make good parents anyways, in fact most of them will tell you this. A lot of them get abortions because they don't think they can make good parents, yet. Maybe they want kids one day but just aren't ready. They know that if they brought a child into this world it would be absolutely and entirely irresponsible of them. The majority of women who get unplanned pregnancies are not living with their partner, or are necessarily even in a committed relationship. There are also many who are in committed relationships that find themselves suddenly not in one anymore upon becoming pregnant.I don't like abortion, even though I don't think it's the moral equivalent of murder I do think it's a bad thing. If we're looking at is a problem that needs solving, the solution is definitely not making it illegal. I think a more practical and viable solution is education about birth control, and also to make birth control more available. If you can get contraceptives readily and at zero or very low cost, the rate of unplanned pregnancies will go down, and therefore the rate of abortion will also. Fix the foster care system, so that your kid can have a good shot at a decent future even if you can't provide it. There are things we can do solve abortion that don't involve turning something that's already an incredibly traumatic process into a criminal act.   Yes, we can screen for that. But I'd rather be born with a deformity than never know life. That is true, and it needs our attention. We don't simply abort because we have failed to keep abuse rates down. That's not even right. Rather than terminating children, maybe fight for better treatment? Also agreed. Which is why we have programs for children in that situation that doesn't involve abusive homes, and that are regulated. No one thinks they will ever be a good parent. And that, is probably the hardest point in this to argue. I think you know this, but my friend had become pregnant at a young age. She refused an abortion. Now she has to care for her newborn. But she did it. While there are some like you have stated...look at the tail of the coin. A lot of women go to have their fifth, sixth or even seventh abortion all the time. That's why 3000 are preformed nationally every day. But as I said, we still have options.
