guys .. Allow me to do d kick off ..
i think most people won't deny d fact that "abortion", is in its most fundamental form, d taking of another person's life (some of us will beg to differ) .. yet nobody can say for sure, if d legalising of this "murder" is ultimately right or wrong... This, i think, is d reason why "abortion" is starting to fascinate me a little ..
my opinion on abortion is contrary to my faith ( im a buddhist), and we buddhist will somewhat believe that taking d life of another will surely result in "bad karma", or consequences which we'll hv to face later on in life. but then again, i cant help but think ... is abortion a form of murder at all?? and can d foetus b considered a living thing, jus like d rest of us ??
after some thinking, i hv concluded that d foetus is a 'kind' of living thing, but not completely one ... so d only way to decide if d foetus is human ( and if abortion is murder), is to decide, at what stage does the d foetus finally become a human .. for me, d foetus shd b counted as a human at d point where it can start to feel pain. b4 d foetus can feel any pain, it is jus another cell, or DNA, or anything u wish to call it, jus like our hair .. erm, according to research, its only after abt 28 wks ... so to sum it up, anythg b4 this period of time, a foetus, cannot b called human, and as such, abortion during which is not a form of murder .. and hence, abortion b4 28wks, shd b considered n made legal.. what do u guys think ??
