Question about Declawing (why is it bad)?

Okay, before I ask, let me tell you the reason behind the question:

I have never owned a cat, as I am allergic to them, and, I don't plan to own a cat. I would like to be educated on cat ownership though, as extra knowledge can never hurt!

I have read many posts lately about rescues that won't let you de-claw, and responses from people saying that they never would de-claw.....

Why is it a bad thing?

(My guess it that you are rendering the kitty defenseless....but, I wonder if there is more to it.)

** Reminder - I am asking this for info only....
