"The right to abort, or not, is not an issue of personal responsibilty. It is an issue of personal liberty."It is clearly both, since the person pregnant is responsible for that child, once born."At some point, a person loses the liberty to terminate a pregnancy. People differ on when that right should occur."Why do they lose that freedom, and why do you think it should transfer to the government? If that is the case, then maybe the government should take over responsibility for the child, once born. "It doesn't transfer to the govt. The personal liberty transfers to the unborn child."Really? How does that work, exactly? When does that happen? Are you only talking about late term abortions here? You know they are very rare, right?[ ...then maybe the government should take over responsibility for the child, once born. ]"It already does if the mother does not want the personal responsibility for the newborn. Giving a baby up for adoption is generally very easy."So, you propose that a woman be forced to bring a pregnancy she has decided she does not want to term, then give it up for adoption - rather than abort it, much earlier in the pregnancy. Have you ever been around a pregnant woman? There is absolutely nothing 'easy' about what you suggest. And it isn't the government taking over responsibility, it would be the adoptive parents doing so. You just want the government to decide she can't have an abortion. This is a very difficult, personal issue, with lots of gray areas. It is and should be up to the people involved to make the decision.
