im pro-choice, I think that abortion should allways be legal
Would you still feel that way even if abortions start getting used at high levels for eugenic purposes? How would you feel if they discover a 'Gay Gene' that can be detected in early pregnancy and, while hetero-sexual couples think there is "nothing wrong with being gay", couples decide they just don’t want to raise gay children?
Beyond the classical pro-life arguments against abortion, there is a lot of morally reprehensible acts occurring around the world because of wide-spread abuse of abortion. While I think it is fair to say that abortions should be legal for people who have good reason to have an abortion, I think saying that they should always be legal is questionable.
An interesting element of this argument has always been how paradoxical the demographic breakdown has been compared to how it is argued. Typically men are far more pro-choice then women, the young are far more pro-choice than older-people, and gay people are far more pro-choice than straight people and it is always argued as a “Women’s Rights” issue. I don’t know if it is still the case, but a handful of years ago polling indicated that if women of voting age were in charge of regulating abortion there would be significant restrictions placed on them.
