​Why abortion is wrong

(11/14/16 3:37pm)

Let me start by saying if you support abortion, have had one, or have pressured someone to get one, I do not hate you. I do not think of you as lesser or inferior. That being said, I—a college student who thinks his views are infallible and incorruptible—will attempt to show why abortion is wrong. You may be quick to shout “straw man fallacy!” in response to many of my comparisons and analogies but I will try to show that both the acceptance of abortion and the object of comparison rationally develop from the same belief system. In each point, I will state what I see as a common logical defense of abortion and then refute it.
