Physical development is usually very rapid early on in the child’s development. Within weeks of being born a baby will start to smile and respond to sounds and environments around them. By 6 months as their muscles begin to develop they will reach for and hold objects which they will also put into their mouths. By one year old they are beginning to crawl or shuffle, pulling or pushing on furniture to stand and then cruise using furniture or adult for support. Sitting has progressed to unaided and they are rolling from their front to their back.
Despite Natural Law forbidding abortion, there is a doctrine of double effect that can be implemented. If the mother’s life is threatened as a result of the pregnancy, for instance during an ectopic pregnancy, then the destruction of the fallopian tube would be acceptable. Here, the primary aim is not the terminate the pregnancy but to save the mother’s life. The secondary effect is that the embryo is destroyed. Here, abortion would be permissible even by Natural law followers, who believe in the sanctity of life.
If you look at the constitution, it says people have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If you have an abortion, you are taking those rights from what would be a child. If you kill him/her, you take away his/her right to life. By aborting the baby, you take away his/her liberty. And, how can it pursue happiness if it isn’t alive to do so?
However, if it was the case that the man did not have the means to save the life, not being able to meet the first requirement 'ought', then there should be no responsibility, hence no reward or punishment, placed upon the man. Whilst the components 'ought' and 'implies' have been addressed, from the notion 'ought implies can', the final key factor
The moral argument is that scientists are killing fetuses to improve the medical condition of living patients. I think that this argument is completely absurd. I think that if a person wants to donate an embryo for this type of research, it should be left up to them. My way of thinking on this issue is very nonconsequentialist which insist that consequences, effects or outcomes are irrelevant: morality is about doing what is right as a matter of principle, regardless of consequences. That means you do the right thing no matter what happens (Thiroux).
Developmental Profile Paper Life-Span Development PSY/500 University of Phoenix Dr. Vong Rathsachack May 19, 2012 Introduction Children develop quickly, no one can delay it, no one can prevent it, however, how children develop and why is the most important factors. Early and middle childhood are the most important years in development, the brain changes rapidly and then slows down. The body changes from infant form and takes the form of male or female, with the development of longer leaner muscles or shorter stubbier bodies. Activities that children enjoy change as they become more aware of their feelings and emotions. Nothing in this world is more important than learning how and why your body and mind change so drastically.
Montana Supreme Court legalized PAS in a decision handed down on 2009-DEC-31. (“Euthanasia & Physician Assisted Suicide. (PAS) All side to the issue”.) "Those who oppose any measures permitting assisted suicide argue that we have a duty to protect and to preserve all life. To allow people to assist others in destroying their lives violates a duty we have to respect human life”.
Points of View Reference Center. Web. 26 Oct. 2012. The article argues that abortion is a right that should be protected and should be considered as a public health concern in the U.S. It claims that women should have the right to decide if they will bring a pregnancy to term and should be given the right to a safe, legal and accessible abortion.
Wade ruled that women have the right to an abortion during the first 6 months of pregnancy, legalizing abortion as a result. The court ruled that abortion is a right under the U.S. Constitution and prohibiting abortion would violate the 14th Amendment (which protects against state actions to deny the right to privacy, including a woman's qualified right to terminate her pregnancy). This law doesn’t see the baby as a human at all. This law makes it ok to abort a baby that has a heartbeat, legs, arms, and fingers. The unborn child deserves the rights that are given to all living humans.
