310. A few reasons.
Edited on Mon Jul-19-10 01:15 PM by Deep13
An embryo is not a person because there are no souls. A fetus probably isn't either.

Women definitely are people.

Requiring women to bring a fetus to term is a form of slavery and a violation of the equal protection of the laws.

Due to our increasing population and the pressure it puts on the global environment, no method of birth control should be dismissed out of hand.

By the way, I'm pro-abortion, not just pro-choice. I think in most circumstances, terminating an unwanted pregnancy is a reasonable and morally defensible thing to do.
