Pro Life apologia - in brief (for greater detail click here           )
Breakdown of pro abortion arguments: 1) As horrible as both rape and incest are, do we add killing the innocent for the crime of one of the parents.     Also the actual incidence for getting and remaining pregnancy after a traumatic rape event is very low.     Much lower than the 2% - 5% claimed.     http://www.christianliferesources.com         We do not have accurate statistics on abortion and the reasons claimed for the abortion     as there are not complete records kept in Canada since 2004.     http://news.nationalpost.com/     However, the information below from the US should be fairly close to what we see in Canada as percentages.     "Actual percentage of US abortions in "hard cases"      are estimated as follows:      in cases of rape. 0.3%      in cases if incest, 0.03%      in cases of risk to maternal life, 0.1%      in cases of risk to maternal health, 1%      and in cases of fetal health issues, 0.5%.      About 98% of abortions in the United States are elective.      including socio-economic reasons or for birth control.     This includes perhaps 30% for primarily economic reasons." 2) a) the uterus is the only organ in a human that is designed for something other than our own bodies use.     b) except in the case of rape/incest, the woman voluntarily engaged in sexual intercourse.     If she were to get pregnant why should another human die because of her “choice”. 3) This argument assumes we can judge - before hand - the value of someone’s life and contribution. History is replete      with examples of people considered “unwanted” or “of no value to society” but because of someone’s compassion,      they lived and these “unwanted children” ended up making vast contributions.           Examples  are:       Steve Jobs (business) http://www.ncregister/steve-jobs-an-unwanted-child           Cyrus the Great  (Military leader)           Louis  "SATCHMO" Armstrong  (Musician)           Jack Nicholson (Actor) His mother had been counselled to abort him.        Or people like Derek Paravicini who was born 3 months premature, complications from his birth resulted in him      being blind      and having autism. However, Derek is now considered one of the worlds best pianists,      able to remember and play any piece of music after hearing it once. https://Derek_Paravicini
4) Answers to those subjective questions      A. Size: You were smaller as an embryo, but since when does your body size determine value?           Are large humans more valuable than smaller ones?      B. Level of Development: True, you were less developed as an embryo, but two-year olds          are less developed than teenagers. Do teens have a greater right to life?      C. Environment: Where you are has no bearing on what you. How does a journey of eight inches         down the birth canal suddenly change the essential nature of the unborn?      D. Degree of Dependency: Sure, you depended on your mother for survival, but since when does         dependence on another human mean we can kill you? (Consider conjoined twins, for example.) Thoughts to ponder:        Surely we should err on the side of caution when deciding the value of a human life.        My 7 year old grand daughter was diagnosed with incurable brain cancer, and even though they        gave her 0% chance of survival, we tried everything we could to save her.        Suppose we had said, “ah well, the experts have spoken. Why bother trying anything,        why waste our time and money?”        Would we not be thought of as bad grand parents? As cold and heartless?        However, we did try and hundreds of people helped us with support, money, and expertise,        for which we are grateful. Hundreds of people proved that even though it might be hopeless,        we should still fight for vulnerable lives.
Remember these is a person behind the question.       The pro choice person, aside from the issue is still a sinner loved by God, whom Jesus died for. As in a mirror, if we can reflect back to them not how they talk but how they actually behave, we can at least respectfully direct them to the truth. Our starting point is “Defining good and evil”. How do they KNOW what is good and evil? “For if we recognize the evidence of a world wide moral law, then to answer any moral question, we need to appeal to the author of that law: Ravi Zacharias from his book "Can Man Live Without God"

Main arguments used by Pro Choice advocates 1) Instances of incest or rape, why force a women to bear the child of her rapist.
Main arguments used by Pro Choice advocates 2) Women’s rights to her body. “We don’t force women to give up an organ to save a life”
Main arguments used by Pro Choice advocates 3) All children should be “wanted” children
Main arguments used by Pro Choice advocates 4) Various undervaluing of life based on subjective criteria.  The foetus is not viable on it’s own It is not fully developed  and other such arguments. 
The main point of all these arguments is that they assume that the foetus is “not human” and therefore has no intrinsic value. For more detailed information click here Embryology, the specialized study of conception and birth prove the we are human from conception. See the section on Science in the Pastoral brief.
Pro Life apologia - in brief Main arguments for life The foetus is human, just in a different stage of development.
