The Against Argument (Murder):

No, abortion should not be considered murder. The reason for this is because the woman who is holding the fetus in her womb is not obliged to keep it there, as a woman should and must have complete control over her body, and therefore over aborting the child who is dependent on her body for sustenance. Similarly, the fetus is dependent on the woman, and the woman is not dependent on the fetus. Therefore, it is only logical that the woman be given her right to abort the fetus. It can also be asked, "Is the woman morally obliged to keep the child?" Well, no. Should the fetus be a nuisance to her health, life, or future, of course it should be moral to abort it.
