Abortion is murder no matter when a person believes life begins. The fetus is a human being even though it is unborn. The child has no sense of self and should have the right to get a chance to live. During abortion, the baby is mutilated, torn apart, and vacuumed out of the mother, resulting in pain for the fetus (Whyabortioniswrong.net). This is wrong and should not be allowed.
“The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me?” (Teresa) Being Pro-life or Pro-choice is an option everyone has, there are many factors that help once decide between the two and there are some who just can’t decide. Although, abortion is legal why should anyone be allowed to determine when to end another human beings life is unethical, a crime and overall just cruel. After on January 22, 1973 at the court of Roe vs Wade it was decided that the termination of pregnancy became a legal decision any woman could take. Although, there is not a single law stating that abortion is a crime, if a pregnant woman was to be killed the court of law would consider it a double homicide. How does one person determine if another dies?
From a religious standpoint they believe that when the fetus arrives it is a person. Most believe when the nervous system is made, because it can feel pain like an abortion. However this stage does not happen until the 6th or 7th month and abortion never occurs after the 24th week. Abortion is necessary because of the potential of existing circumstances that would be a detriment to the mother or fetus. The mother could be physically, mentally, or emotionally unwell and not capable of being pregnant or having a child without endangering her health; the pregnancy could have possibly been the result of a terrible crime, such as rape or incest; the fetus could be unhealthy and be a danger to the mother's health.
Abortions are not nearly as safe as many think for the mother, physically or mentally. Abortion also happens to not be the only alternative to having a child, but many see it as that. Abortion is wrong and should not be permitted anywhere, because abortion is basically the murdering of an unborn child, many physical and psychological risks and damages come from abortion, and lastly, there are numerous other ways to get out of parenting an unwanted child than abortion. Since life begins at conception, abortion is similar to murder, as it is the act of taking human life. No civilized society permits one human to intentionally harm or take the life of another human without punishment, and abortion is no different.
It is very important for the mother’s health to be up to part. If the mother’s health is at risk due to pregnancy, then the women should be able to consider an abortion. What will the child do without their parent? If the mother doesn’t survive due to complications then they will be separated later on down the line. Now on the other side, the strongest argument is since life begins at conception, abortion is akin to murder as it is the act of taking human life.
The ethical view of abortion Does a mother have the right to take the life of her unborn child? Some may say that it is God’s will for that fetus to be born, and that the child is supposed to be born. This essay does not argue religious views, but ethical views. I will be using different views from an ethical standpoint to try to understand if abortion is morally good or bad. From a non-biblical standpoint, it is based on whether a woman finds it ethically right to terminate a pregnancy and what effect it would ultimately have on her happiness.
R.S REVISION- ABORTION Roman Catholic Church "Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception; abortion and infanticide are the most abominable of crimes." Second Vatican Council, Encyclical Gaudium et Spes Abortion is always wrong. Life begins at conception (or at the very least we cannot be certain that it doesn't), therefore abortion is murder. The unborn child is a sacred human life; it deserves the same respect as any other human being. Even in the case of rape, the RC Church does not support abortion - the foetus would be paying for someone else’s crime.
She also claims that the antiabortionists are fighting against the rights of women and the ability of free choice. McElroy’s argument for abortion wasn’t convincing and most of the claims presented needed more support. I believe that abortion should be illegal unless in some special cases such as rape and situations where the mother’s health can be affect by the pregnancy. The main issue of abortion is the fetus’ life. It all comes down to when it become a human.
I believe that it begins at conception, and that we are illegally killing innocent people. Abortion is an issue that I believe is a crime. Lawmakers in Congress keep abortion legal because they argue that it is a right to privacy which is also in the Constitution. These people neglect the fact that other parts of the law are being broken in this act. Only in special birth complications should an abortion be performed, for example one where the birth of the child could severely harm or kill the birthmother.
Warren beings her argument by acknowledging that abortion “…usually entails the death of a fetus. ( Social and Personal Ethics: The Moral Status Of Abortion, Marry Anne Warren, Page 109)” Shockingly enough, at least to many individuals, Warren still holds firm that safe abortion is both morally permissible and under no circumstance should be illegal. Warren recognizes that it is almost futile to argue with those who believe that abortion is equivalent to murder unless it is argued that fetuses to not have the same right to life as other human beings. She does this by
