Some people say “I’m personally opposed to abortion, but it should be up to the mother to decide.”
Why are you personally opposed to abortion? If it is not wrong, if it does not take the life of an unborn child, why be opposed at all? Women should be able to have as many as they want. It is illogical to recognize the taking of an innocent human life, claim to be opposed and support its legality. Would you say “I’m personally opposed to child abuse or slavery, but it should be up to the individual to decide, a mother or father should be free to abuse their child if they want to?”Of course, not.
In reality, the “personally opposed” argument is no different than supporting abortion.
