I'm answering the order of your statement from last to first:
If by your own admission the fetus is alive, then you are indeed killing someone else when you practice an abortion. The rest of the discussion is then kind of moot, because you are accepting the action of murdering another person for the sake of the mother's preference.
Dirius, I know that you're a clever guy, and not nearly as obtuse as this paragraph suggests.
You can call it "killing" if you like to be melodramatic about it, but what an early- or even mid-term abortion seeker is not "killing" is an actual person. No "murder" is therefore involved.
And please get off the sociopathic notion that abortions are entirely about the woman's "preference." Many women with ectopic pregnancies longed for a healthy baby. They could die if the embryo is not removed, and ruptures their fallopian tube. Oftentimes it's the father who doesn't want the baby and pressures his wife/GF to have an abortion. Sometimes a woman with multiple implanted embryos is carrying so many fetuses that they cannot all survive to healthy births. Aborting one or two gives the remaining fetuses a significantly better chance of healthy live births.
Surely you understand that desperate girls can get suicidal over an unwanted pregnancy. I don't imagine you'd be OK with her suicide so long as doctors could somehow save her fetus.
If you wish, we can review once more all of the reasons why abortion is not merely about "preference."
BTW, I assume you are a strict vegetarian. Obviously livestock are capable of feeling fear, pain, and suffering, notably at the time of slaughter; and they want to live. They have heartbeats and functioning brains. Plus, they've been born.
This might be understandable if there is a complication, or if the pregnancy is putting the mother's life at risk, or the pregnancy isn't viable. But if it is a viable pregnancy - you have no moral right to justify someone's murder. The conditions of conception, or the mother's socio-economic standing are no justification to affect someone else's life.
It's good that you admit of some very real needs for exceptions to a strict anti-abortion stance.
But, yet again, Dirius, early-term abortion is not murder.
I get that this is your strongly-held belief, but most nations on the planet and the law of the US says it's not.
I haven't. What I say is that you can't kill an innocent person. As you said, the fetus is indeed alive.
A fetus is not a person. Terminating it is therefore not murder.
But it's the height of hypocrisy for anti-abortionists to ignore all of the other ways in which they justify or ignore homicides or state-sanctioned murder of actual living people.
I have considered your factors. There are indeed economic perks. But the way risk assesment equation works, is you consider first the viability of the deal you are making - the perks factors you are mentioning come as secondary. If the risk from the agreement you are entering is too high, and the return is too low (just a few economic discounts) - its not worth it.
So don't get married, Dirius.
I don't mind admitting I'm wrong if the empirical evidence is there to back the claim. This is why I keep asking when the fetus is alive. If someone can indeed verify it is not a living person at some stage, I don't mind the abortion; but if it is alive, then its the killing of a living human. Same thing with the morning after pill, if only prevents fertilization, I don't mind it.
There are two separate issues here that you keep conflating. (1) Is a viable fetus alive? and (2) Is it a person? Yes to #1, and no to #2.
The only dicey part here is with a requested abortion so late in the woman's pregnancy (generally after 24 weeks) that the fetus could survive on its own, albeit oftentimes with great medical interventions and health risks as a preemie. Generally I wouldn't support abortion at a late stage.
But I think there are a few exceptions. Sometimes a later-term fetus is known to have such severe birth defects that it cannot possibly survive more than a few hours after birth, and in great distress. Under such circumstances, it may be more humane and compassionate for both the mother and the fetus to terminate the pregnancy.
