Interesting conversation. I stand on the neutral side of things. There are just too many different circumstances faced when one considers an abortion. Many were discussed on this forum. I would like to offer my viewpoint. Please don't be offended.
The MAIN reason people want abortions is because raising a child will cause problems in their life. Then the first to ask is does that give her the right or (is it right) to get an abortion? Pros and Cons would both argue based on certain circumstances that caused her to become pregnant and then discuss the overall benefit and harm that would occur if an abortion did take place. These reasons all reflect partly on the basic viewpoints of people of whether they THINK something is right or WRONG (their morals (not sure if its right word to use but you know what I mean)) and reflect based on some of the conditions there are in life. What I mean by conditions are for example laws that govern and certain things that a person needs to survive in this society (eg money) which are all established by us. If we look into these factors, they are all so complicated in the world we live in that it is very hard and impossible to be sure that 1 side is completely right.
Moreover, after looking deeply into this and trying to find a solution. I wanted to understand why we even have to end up in the difficult position of even asking the question in the first place. This is the answer I came up with: Because we have an imperfect society. Why is society imperfect? I think we can all agree that it isn't perfect. Problems like wars(genocide), famine, poverty, diseases, selfishness and ignorance in people, you name them all occur constantly throughout the history since human origin. Yet knowing these things are bad ALL the time we still haven't resolved it after all the time that has passed? Why do people still kill, rape, slander, and hurt others constantly? Or hurt ourselves? WHY??? We cant
even answer this basic question.
If people fixed these problems then we can easily answer if abortion is right or wrong. Because really the main problem is not whether "Do I need an abortion or not"? but whether if people can stop hurting themselves and create a better (I wont say perfect) society.
