These people are called the pro-life activists. Supporters of both pro-life and pro-choice refer to religion as support for their side of the argument. Pro-life supporters claim that abortion is murder, and is therefore against God's will. However, pro-choice defenders argue that abortion is not murder since the fetus is not yet a fully formed human. Therefore, abortion would not be a defiance against God.
Religion is already something that gives people rules, regulations and restrictions to live by; however, divorce is a thing which can determine who you spend the rest of your life with and is so important that everyone should have the choice to make that decision. Many religions allow divorce but even then have loop holes or certain ways of going about getting a divorce. Christianity, in general has a negative outlook on divorce, however Christian denominations vary in their tolerance of it. The Catechism of the Catholic Church strictly forbids divorce, in many cases divorcing your partner and marrying someone else is regarded as committing adultery. This opinion is often held because of the fact that you have consummated your marriage with your partner; hence you must stay with them for the rest of your life.
It belongs to the natural moral law which is written on every human heart and which the Catholic Church obviously also teaches: that natural moral law which is so wonderfully illumined for us by Our Lord Jesus Christ by His saving teaching, but most of all by His Passion and death.” In relation to Pelosi’s statement I was able to come across anonymous writers who disagreed and responded to political leaders that were supporters of “pro-life.” Pro-abortion politicians once acknowledged “I respect your views, but I have to represent all the people,” In response, they answered, “That’s what we’re trying to say to you. If you neglect the unborn, you are not representing all the people. Roe vs. Wade excludes them from protection; we demand that they be included. A public servant cannot legitimately ignore an entire segment of the public that is being
Prior to the Roe v. Wade decision, women were forced to resort to unsafe, illegal abortions. Often times, these procedures were performed by untrained individuals in unsanitary conditions. As a result of these illegal procedures, thousands of women died or were left physically harmed. In addition, unsafe abortion increases the risk of complications associated with subsequent pregnancies. Modern abortion procedures performed by trained professionals are generally safe and rarely cause any harm to the woman.
Children may also be more likely to be born with handicaps because of problems or change in the mothers reproductive organs as a result of previously having an abortion. Not only can there be significant physical damages to a mother, but their can also be severe psychological damages as well. Post abortion depression is extremely common among women. Women who have aborted their fetuses may experience anything that ranges from mild depression, to suicidal thoughts, and in extreme cases, actual suicide. This proves that abortion can be detrimental to both a woman’s physical and mental health.
Wade and Beyond: Forty years of legal abortion in the United States” Joffe talks about the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States, and what the benefits and costs have been of this landmark decision. “More than any other issue, the abortion war symbolizes the still contested concerns originally brought forward by second-wave feminists in the late 1960’s-the changing relationship between the genders, the place of women in the public sphere, the legitimacy of sexual activity separated from procreation.” (Joffe
Everyone has different opinions on abortion. The controversy about abortion has transcended from the religious belief to the medical aspect and into the political arena. Abortion has been a sensitive issue that has been around for a very long time. Abortion can be pro choice or anti choice, but whatever the decision is it should be based on the women’s decision not the government. Abortion has been documented since the biblical times.
Society sees abortion as a freedom of liberty, and speech, even though our Christian community still haves a biblical interpretation for abortion. Conflict theory believes that not understanding a conflict may play an important factor with abortion. Summary Abortion has become very common in our society. One of the
Abortion is Wrong Of all unintended pregnancies, 4 in 10 are aborted. In fact, there are approximately 1.21 million abortions in America each year. In On the Moral and Legal Status of Abortion, Mary Anne Warren discusses a few arguments against abortion, namely bringing into play whether the fetus is actually a person, or “not a member of the moral community”. She defends that abortion is a morally sound action. Don Marquis, in his article An Argument that Abortion is Wrong, takes the opposite stance.
