Person 1: Abortion should be allowed in cases of incest. Person 2 (our hero): Incest is a serious crime. I’d like to understand your view better. Why do you think abortion should be allowed in this case?


Different people have different reasons for thinking abortion is justified in cases of pregnancy resulting from incestuous relationships. Some people focus on the status of the mother as a victim of a crime; this is similar to the proposal that abortion should be allowed in cases of rape. In reality, the child is another victim of the crime, and he or she should not be blamed or punished.

Other people focus on possible birth defects of the child; this is similar to the proposal that abortion should be allowed if the preborn child is diagnosed with a disability. In reality, we should support and care for people with disabilities, not kill them.

Person 1: It’s not the rape victim’s fault she’s pregnant. Person 2 (our hero): I agree. It’s the rapist’s fault, and the victim shouldn’t be blamed. Rape is an awful crime, doubly so when the rapist robs his victim of the choice to not become pregnant.Person 1: People with disabilities have hard lives. We shouldn’t bring more into the world. Person 2 (our hero): I want to alleviate hardships too. Let me ask a question; bear with me. If someone becomes disabled at age 2, should the parents kill her?Person 1: So that’s why I’m pro-choice. Person 2 (our hero): Thanks for explaining. I think I get it, but I want to make sure I understand your view correctly. Let me ask a couple questions to clarify.Person 1: A woman shouldn’t be reminded of her rapist every time she sees her child. Person 2 (our hero): I agree. Nobody should have to endure rape or its consequences. I wish nobody were ever raped.
