Sean Stanton Mr. Hopkins Communication Skills 16 December 2008 “Pro-choice” A woman who is pregnant with a child should have the right to decide whether or not she can let the embryo or fetus she is carrying continue to be present inside her body. Because a woman is entitled to certain reproductive rights, especially the choice of whether or not to carry a pregnancy to birth, outlawing abortion would be wrong. Outlawing abortion is also wrong because the pro-life movement can negatively affect the life of a woman to help the condition of an embryo or fetus. To add to that, an embryo or fetus is not a person it simply has the potential of becoming one. Finally, the main argument I am trying to present is that I do not think we should
Therefore, abortion would not be a defiance against God. Another main point of the argument is over the woman's personal rights, versus the rights of the unborn child. Pro-choice activists maintain that regardless of the individual circumstances, women should have the right to chose whether or not to abort. The pregnancy and labor will affect only the woman's body, therefore it should be the woman's decision. Pro-life supporters, on the other hand, believe that the unborn child has the right to life, and that abortion unlawfully takes away that right.
The author argues that a pregnant woman still preserves right to abortion, if that creates threat to her life and health. However, such practice cannot be qualified as murder because similar decisions are made about criminals, hopeless patients, as well as lives of thousands of people
Those people who are not in favor of abortion has the choice to not abort a baby and to those who has different religious and moral beliefs, like we all do, should have the right to stand what they think is right and moral and should not have to live on the belief system of other people. If a woman feels and knows that her pregnancy is harmful for her and for the baby’s physical and mental health, and if she knows that the child will grow up in poor environment, she should have the choice to do what she thinks is right, to do what she wants, and to decide for herself. Abortion is something that needs to be decided based on a person’s own beliefs and no one has the right to decide this for someone else. Do some people know what it is like to be a young, goal oriented woman, having an entire great future, and then she is suddenly facing difficult decision of choosing her great future or having an unwanted child?

Melissa Capristo Mr. Baumgartner English 10 Honors 2 December 2012 Pro-Choice How would you feel if someone controlled what you did to your own body? I feel that by not making abortion legal you are controlling someone’s rights to their own body. Many women that want to have an abortion have emotional and personal reasons behind it. Some women choose to have their babies even though they didn’t want to but I believe that those kids have a high chance of growing up feeling unloved by their mother. I believe that every single person that is born into this world should have the rights to their own body.
Given that Susan did not necessarily plan to have a child at that stage in her life would not make it fair that it be put upon her. I strongly agree with Thomson’s view that the fact that she didn’t offer her body to have a child within her, she then has no obligation to keep the fetus alive. And for her to have an abortion may be a bit selfish and inconsiderate of the baby’s potential, but it would not be unjust for her to do so. In Tammy’s case, after having decided to keep the child, to decide to get an abortion so late into the pregnancy is in fact unjust. By doing so, she taking away the fetus’ life because it would be so inconvenient for her in the short run of her life.
They think that this act threatens the rights of women by attacking choice and preventive care. They think that reproductive freedom is preventive care and can save lives. The members of this organization think that reproductive freedom is about empowering women to take care of their bodies however they want to. They don’t think any woman should be denied contraception or abortion because politicians have taken it upon themselves to make personal decisions for them. They don’t think a woman can be denied care because of her financial status.
On the other hand some people argued that late-term abortion should not be banned because it is necessary to terminate a fetus when the life of the woman is in danger as a result of complicated pregnancy; or when pregnancy result from incest or rape and the woman may be late in finding out that she is pregnant. Late-term abortion is also favored when the fetus genetic defect,
I believe it is right that infanticide is illegal because as soon as the baby is born it is a living, breathing human being. If a mother can’t take care of her baby then she should give it up for adoption instead of ending its life before it even has a chance. Nine months should be plenty of time for the decision to be made on whether or not to end the pregnancy. For the fact that disabilities can be detected so much sooner nowadays there shouldn’t be any need to end a pregnancy late-term. Personally, I believe early-term abortions with reason are acceptable, but infanticide should not ever be a
If a working woman or student suddenly has to leave the country to have an abortion, this means she will have to think of excuses and lies for an explanation. This is not fair to the woman, she should not have to explain herself to anyone, it is her body and therefore she can do what she wants, she does not need other people’s
