:/ Man you must suck in economics.
Opportunity cost is often listed the disadvantages versus advantages of picking one choice over the other. In the case of pregnancy, if the person does does not want a child(for medical or personal), abortion has the advantage overwhelmingly.
You are missing the factor of "will", going on to say that because a child could exist, it should.
-Of course that's an idiotic notion in and of itself.
Viability versus miscarriage.
You seem to not understand the two do not directly influence one another.
Viability means the fetus can survive outside the womb.
Miscarriage means the fetus dies of natural causes.
The supreme court's decision was made upon viability, not miscarriage.
So no, I don't have a problem with the supreme court, in what way did I call their decision stupid?
(oh that's right, I didn't).
Your argument for miscarriage is invalid. A 10-20% higher potential survival chance from miscarriage doesn't mean that abortion is murder.
Imagine a woman week 14-20 has problems with pregnancy. The child cannot possibly survive outside of the womb at this stage.
The choice is either to abort the child, saving the woman
Since abortion is "murder" and illegal, they both die.
