Notable philosophers like Marquis identify as pro-life because of their views of the personhood of the fetus while Warren identifies as pro-choice. Pro-choice advocates argue that a woman’s right to choices concerning her own body is as important or perhaps even more important than the fetus’ right to life. The moral status of the fetus is one of the most prevalent arguments to the abortion debate and the main difference between pro-life and pro-choice advocates. Warren is a prominent figure in the abortion debate. In “On the Moral and Legal Status of Abortion,” Warren’s main argument centers around determining what exactly makes a genetically human being a morally human being.
What about in the case of rape, incest, or threat to the woman’s life? This is a tough topic to cover because even some die-hard, pro-life activists believe that in this situation abortion is acceptable. If, in their eyes, a fetus is a human being from the point of conception, then shouldn’t it have rights as well? Shouldn’t those fetus rights be protected in severe emotional and damaging cases like these? Supporting exceptions to the rule is the same as acknowledging that a woman right is more important than the fetus’s; thereby admitting that the right to have an abortion needs to be the woman’s
I am on the fence about abortions. There are some situations in which I can understand the person aborting the baby but I don’t feel people who are knowingly trying should then decide to abort some babies because they only want
She will express her feelings and expect her confidant to not tell anyone what she has said. The only person a woman needs to have understand her reasons for having an abortion is herself. Commandment 5, Thou shall not kill is what abortion does. Life begins at conceptions. No matter what the circumstances surrounding conception an innocent life was created.
The beliefs of Pro-Life and Pro-choice can be supported not just through science, but also through constitutional right of human life and choice. Women have fought for their rights to have an abortion by their choice. However, the main argument on abortion is, when is life
You might decide a few key elements of the pro-life decisions are worthwhile, such as preserving the safety of the mother and unborn child. Your religion could also take precedence over abortions. As for myself I am undecided. Personally if I had to make the decision to keep a child that I created unintentionally I would fight for pro-life, and love the child unconditionally. Although if I were to be asked by a friend or a random person what choice should be made I would have to consider their situation.
We all know that one of the few things that we all seem to agree on is that we have to get rid of the abortion law and make sure that any woman that wants an abortion get one no matter the trauma or distress. Undoubtedly we all agree on it, but fail to realize what the law really means, or we may understand it but fail to get advanced with the law and research it. Even though abortion is looked at as “ a right, a form of justice, a woman’s right to choose abortion,”(Pro & Cons of Abortion) we still fail to realize the after affects of abortion. “In our disgust with the extreme oppression women experience under the present abortion laws, many of us are understandably tempted to accept insulting token changes that we would angrily shout down if they were offered to us in any other field of struggle for woman’s liberation.”(www.google.com / pro/cons of abortion) When we see our demands having any effect at all we are then tempted to convince ourselves that everything that sound good right then may not turn out good for women in the long run. And a lot of us are so fed up with the system that we do not even bother to find out what it is doing so we can fight it and demand what we want.
Some principles of moral characterization and of moral permissibility, principles capable of explaining some of the moral condemnations, which Thompson expresses, but which remain all too vulnerable and obscure in her readings. The elaboration of those principles warrants those condemnations of abortion, which Thompson thinks mistaken as well as many of those attributions of human rights which she so much takes for, granted. She briefly state the reason why the fetus from conception has human rights, that is, should be given the same consideration as other human
I believe that a woman should make her own decision when it comes to making a decision about having an abortion. I personally do not believe in abortion. I feel that it is the person right to decide what decisions they choose to make during their lives. I know that unwanted pregnancies do happen, and people have to decide what is best for them. I will follow the NASW Code of Ethics guideline in my practice of social work.
Contrast to Pro-life perspective - Pro-choice believe that reproductive health care decisions should be made by a woman, they oppose any legislation, judicial decisions that unnecessarily impedes a woman’s access to an abortion. They expect access to affordable abortions, reliable contraceptives, youth sex-education programs, and state / government funding of abortions for low-income women. These lists of demands seem necessary considering the majority dynamic of American population living in or near poverty. If you deny women the right to choose an abortion it impinges upon their civil liberty and the society at large in many of
