* How did the speaker address arguments and counterarguments? -The speaker addressed both arguments and counterarguments by explaining why birth control is beneficial but on the other side why people think we should remove it completely. However, she would state the opposite side but then blow that out of the way by adding something to go against it. She showed that her argument for birth control was able to outweigh the side arguments against it. Some of her arguments were to the effect that if we take away birth control, girls will end up with more diseases and it won’t stop them from having sexual intercourse.
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
If someone truly wanted an abortion they would find a way to have it. I support pro-life because I believe it is immoral and the woman is denying a human his or her rights. I believe that there should be laws that prohibit abortion. It is not the child’s fault that the woman is pregnant; therefore, why should the child be denied life? There are many cases in which people can argue that a woman became pregnant due to rape and whether or not abortion should be legal.
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.
A pro-lifer is someone who feels that [Use a form of "believe," which is more accurate (and not a cliché)] from the point of development of the embryo that baby is alive and aborting it is like murder. If I had to pick from the two I would choose pro-choice. I think there’s so many different things to consider about a pregnancy that it should be the mother’s choice. Ill be giving some examples of different scenarios to prove that pro-choice is the best way to go. First , say there is a girl who gets raped and she ends up getting pregnant.
Ashley Schilling Dr. Clewis PHL 2000 28 April 2009 Abstract Abortion is a controversial issue in which people choose to be either pro-choice or pro-life. Pro-choice supporters argue that the woman has a right to control what happens to her body and it is morally permissible to abort an unborn child if the woman wishes to. Pro-life supporters believe that the unborn child has rights to life and that it is wrong to abort a human being. I am pro-life and believe that abortion is morally wrong, because the unborn child is still a human and has the same rights to life as any other human. There are other choices a woman can make besides abortion that are morally right.
In the online article “Misperceptions About Unplanned Pregnancy,” the difficulty of obtaining birth control is addressed. It is noted that cost and other obstacles make contraceptives seemingly unobtainable, leading to many adolescent unplanned pregnancies. Also, in terms of accessibility, it is imperative to give women access to safe abortion-performing clinics as to limit the unsafe quest for illegal abortions. With modern surgical technology improving day after day, there should be no reason for a woman to be led, seemingly forcibly, to seek out illegitimate surgical options. Lastly, regarding the pro-choice agenda, simply put, abortion noticeably lowers crime rates.
According to the Concerned Women for America (CWA), easy access to abortion kills innocent life (Williams, par.2). There are many other reasons that follow this. From the biblical aspect, the Holy Bible condemns “baby murder” as a capital crime (Bernay. par.3). Abortions can also sterilize a woman, which can potentially avert her from being able to give birth later on down the line
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
‘’Abortion is always wrong’’ (12 marks) Some people will agree with this statement because abortion is deliberately terminating a pregnancy by removal and destruction of the foetus, which is parallel to murdering an innocent being; as life begins in the conception therefore abortion is wrong, despite that abortion was legalised in 1997, but you must have an consent of two doctors and under 12 weeks unless severe cases, and this must be carried out in the hospital. However some people will disagree with this statement because you may have reasons such as, finical problems, being raped, unplanned birth, mother at risk, child may be disabled. On the other hand others may say that God would not put you through hardships that you wouldn’t be able to do. But there are some cases some people may be able to choose is conjoined twins where the operation is to separate them causing one of them to die. I believe that abortion is wrong because you are killing a being that would have a future like ours; additionally you are causing pains and sufferings for yourself that you have to go through for a few days.
