I can understand people not considering it murder and wanting the woman to have the choice herself, that’s the position I happen to hold. I can also understand folks considering abortion murder, and wanting it outlawed federally, so that states cannot allow it if they wanted to; although I disagree, I think it’s a pretty reasonable position to hold.
What I don’t understand is wanting Roe v Wade overturned so that the decision can be made at the state level. If one thinks it’s murder, shouldn’t it be banned at a federal level? Do these same people want individual states to have the option to make the killing of adults legal as well? Can they perhaps already do this, if they so desired?
Or is it a position held purely as a compromise, because outlawing it federally seems out of reach?
I cannot see any reasonable moral argument that the decision shouldn’t be made at a federal level, shouldn’t be made at a personal level, but should be made in-between at the state level. It’s purely a position based on law somehow, right?
