Why don't adults have the right to end their life, but women have a right to end the life of an unborn baby?
Welcome to Sanctioned Suicide, a pro-choice forum for the discussion of mental illness, suicide, and the moral implications of the act itself. This is not a pro-suicide site. We do not encourage or aid suicide, and the information offered is for educational purposes only. Read our rules and FAQ for more information.

In the UK, we had a crime drop in the 90's, which none of the criminology experts thought was going to happen, which tied into when abortion became legal (it began 20 something years after, when aborted criminals would otherwise have been starting their criminal careers).
Exactly the same can be said for euthanasia. While abortion is about an unwanted life from the mothers perspective, euthanasia is about an unwanted life from the persons perspective that lives it. It is never good to force people into unwanted lives.That if you don't allow for abortion, you force people to have children that they dont want and/or cant afford to support, so they're born into incredibly poor circumstances, and in many cases will go on to contribute poorly to society, and lead difficult lives.
You can bridge the moral gap between pro life and right to die by ending as much suffering as possible, as the buddha taught. Though I think aboration shouldnt be completely banned, i think we should make it harder to do and also euthanize the fetuses. which would go a long way in ending suffering.
Brilliant.euthanize the fetuses. which would go a long way in ending suffering.
I do hope you'll reconsider your desire to make it harder to act on the choice for abortion by considering other perspectives of people who may already have nearly insurmountable hurdles to access the choice. Are you willing and capable to take on the role of judge and jury, and to fix the problems of everyone who seeks to take the option against your judgment? That's quite a burden. Are you being just in seeking to burden others?Though I think aboration shouldnt be completely banned, i think we should make it harder to do
