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
"Declaration on Procured Abortion, 1974: "From the time that the ovum is fertilised a new life is begun which is neither that of the father or the mother. It is the life of a new human being with its own growth. It would never become human if it were not human already" Declaration on Procured Abortion (1974) Church of England Abortion is an evil to be avoided if possible, but can be justified in 3 circumstances: 1. Risk to the mother’s life or her mental and physical health. 2.
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.
Q) “Fertility Treatment is never justified.” Discuss (10 Marks) Fertility Treatment is the use of medicine and medical procedures to help infertile couples who want children, have children. Fertility Treatment is allowed in the UK as it is viewed as a fundamental desire to want to have children and thus we should help couples who are having trouble conceiving to conceive. However some thinkers would argue that this is wrong and should not be allowed. Natural Law thinkers are set well against Fertility Treatment. They have many issues with processes such as IVF as masturbation to gain the sperm used in IVF is viewed as a misuse of the genitals.
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.
Abortion is seen as no different to murder. In the case or Rape or incest, pro-life campaigners argue that the child is the one being punished when it has not committed the crime and that the child is completely innocent and it’s the criminal that instead should be punished. Pro –life campaigners also argue that adoption is an alternative to abortion, and that many people will use abortion as a method of contraception. They argue that there are thousands of people waiting to adopt children, so if a mother decides she doesn’t want her child for any reason she can offer this child through adoption to a suitable
In my opinion, parents should not vaccinate their children if they want to protect them from developing autism. First of all parents should not vaccinate their children, if they want to protect them from developing autism, because families all over the nation are pointing to childhood vaccinations as the cause for autism. Despite what government and medical authorities say about the safety of vaccines, parents are wise to hear what the parents of autistic children say about their children being normal until vaccinations (Attkinson, 2011). Even though this is not official scientific proof, it is definitely loud enough to make any parent think twice before vaccinating their children. Secondly, parents should oppose vaccinating their children as a way of protection from developing autism because of the significant step of banning mercury from being included in vaccines, which was taken by the US government related to this matter (Campbell, 2004).
If you were to leave the issue alone no babies could be risked to be harmed or risk being aborted by their parents solely based on their gender. If research were to continue like this it would not be soon until scientists and doctors find ways to learn more about the child before their gone, like there personality, which would cause even more damage as people would be more likely to abort the child unless its exactly to their liking The second reason that the creation of the perfect human should not be the goal of humanity is that this may be impossible to find. People have so many different perspectives on the word perfect, so no human could be perfect in every body’s eyes. The biggest example of this is Hitler. Hitler thought
For example, a relativist would say “abortion should be prevented, but can be allowed if it is the kindest thing to do.” An expectation can be applied to a situation if a teenage girl has been raped, and her future would be better without a baby as she cannot afford a child and the baby would not have a good life due to this. The child wouldn’t have a warm place to stay or a comfy bed to sleep. The main difference between these two is expectations. In absolute, there are no expectations; the situation does not change anything. Whereas relative is has loads of expectations and depends on the ethics of the situation.
But I do not think it is right for the government to make abortion illegal either. Individual liberty is one of the founding principles of the United States and the decision to have an abortion is a very personal one. While I think it is a serious choice to have an abortion, I think there are some situations where it can be justified. A woman should not be forced to have a child that is the result of rape or incest. Even if these cases are only about one percent of abortions, it still affects thousands of women each year.
