Having an abortion is killing an innocent person for insignificant reasons. If other people get killed or put into jail for killing other people then why, shouldn’t women who choose to abort their pregnancies? It is the same thing. Whether or not the baby is wanted, all people who kill any human being in any way need to be punished. If the mother and or father wasn’t allowed or didn’t want a child in the first place then as a couple they should have decided to be abstinent until they were ready to take on the responsibilities of having and taking care of a
Well as been said before, abortion has to occur when researching human embryonic stem cells. Where abortion is such a hot topic that politicians are hesitant to take either side, the process of searching for the next big cure has encountered many problems. Scott Kusendorg, author of Moral Objections to Embryonic Stem Cell Research, clearly describes the hard truth about Embryonic stem cell research. "First, you must kill the embryo to harvest its stem cells. If the embryo is a human person, killing it to benefit others is a clear-cut evil.
This analogy however, is only applicable in the case of a pregnancy due to rape and is otherwise a disanalogy. Secondly, I will present Don Marquis’ “future likes ours” argument. Marquis argues that abortion deprives a foetus of future experiences is akin to a pre-mature human being’s death. For Marquis, abortion is just as wrong as murdering a human being. Marquis states that “The future of a standard foetus includes a set of experiences, projects, activities, and such which are identical with the futures of adult human beings and are identical with the futures of young children.” Marquis further adds that “it is wrong to kill human beings after the time of birth is a reason that also applies to foetuses, it follows that abortion is prima facie morally wrong.” Marquis remarks that killing deprives humans and foetuses the value of their future.
The book for itself told me that it was going to be about abortion and indeed there were going to a lot of trouble. But overall the book was good and informed me a lot about the illegal abortions women’s were having back then. Honestly, the women’s who were getting the abortion were tired of having babies and we not capable of caring for another child. Kaplan’s thesis was that women had the right to know about abortion
By this time the baby can surely feel pain. There are also many future medical issues that abortion can cause. It can increase chances of miscarriages. "A June 2003 study published by the peer-reviewed International Journal of Epidemiology estimated that about 15% of first-trimester miscarriages are attributed to a prior histroy of induced abortion" (ProCon 4). Not only can it cause physical medical issues, it can cause psycholgical issues too.
But on the contrary, a life has been formed at conception and the consequences of sexual activity are well known. Once this human has been formed abortion is a direct violation of their human rights. Abortion is murderous and unnecessary. Since the formation of a human begins almost instantaneously, there is no way to have an abortion without killing a life form. It directly opposes human rights.
Abortion Abortion is a very debatable topic in the United States and there is no clear answer if it’s permissible or not. Abortion can be defined as, the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy at any stage of the pregnancy. Many people believe that abortion should be outlawed, others believe it should be an option, and last view being a mix between both. The mixed view population believe that in cases of rape the mother can have an option to abort or not, or if the fetus reaches a certain age it is not permissible to abort it. Thomson stakes her claim by focusing on three circumstances where she believes abortions to be permissible.
Pro-Choice or Pro-Life Abortion is a very controversial subject that many avoid because it has so many opinions when it is the topic of conversation. According to the Encyclopedia Americana, abortion is the termination of a pregnancy by loss or destruction of a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus before birth. Even though many people believe that the destruction of a human being is considered murder, all women should have the right to choose to plan their own fertility. Abortion has been legal in the United States since 1973 and there are valid reasons to terminate a pregnancy such as a result of being raped or molested and for the health of the mother. In 1969, a woman named Norma L. McCorvey became pregnant.
This individual has a fundamental right to life, which must be protected (“Pro & Con Arguments: “Should Abortion Be Legal?”” par. 2). To many the thought of killing an innocent unborn child as a form of contraceptive is wrong and inhumane. Since 1969, the CDC requests information from health agencies to do surveillance on the number and characteristics of women who legally abort a child (Pazol; pg. 1).
Here we are in this so-called world of freedom but when we exercise that freedom, we become ridiculed for making a choice. I would rather end a pregnancy instead of bringing a child into a world that they are forced to struggle and go without ; to make a child suffer is a far worse act then dissolving the birth of an unborn/ undeveloped fetus. In Roe v. Wade, a landmark Supreme Court decision in 1973, stated that a woman and her doctor may freely decide to abort a pregnancy during the first trimester, state governments can restrict abortion access after the first trimester with laws intended to protect the woman's health, and abortion after fetal viability must be available if the woman's health or life are at risk. Abortion was allowed in the United States of America
