    There is a pretty good debate on this topic which was recently posted at youtube ("Abortion Debate at Texas Freethought Convention, between Matt Dillahunty and Kristine Kruszelnicki " ... look it up if you're interested, but full disclosure, there are some graphic images). It's between two atheists, and they pretty much stick to arguments grounded in science and legal rights.

    Now I'm lost.

    do you think that the belief that life begins at conception is irrational? Because that's an easy to defend rational belief.

    And then to take the next step and claim that we shouldn't kill human life is also very rational.

    Not what I believe but irrationality has nothing to do with that.

    And why does everyone **** on emotions? They are absolutely necessary for good decision making.

    I think that everyone disregards emotions because if we're going to legislate certain freedoms, we need to do so rationally and with reason.

    You can not make a good decision without understanding the emotional aspect of that decision. It's literally how decisions are made.

    I know but emotions are often seen as irrational thus you get all this rhetoric about needing to stay away from it.
