I believe that abortion is the wrong choice except in cases of incest, rape, and to save the life of the mother.” (Romney, 2005) Like Republican candidate for President Mitt Romney, Pro-lifers have many beliefs, these include: all life is sacred; if an abortion is immoral - then it ought to be illegal, the unborn fetus is human and deserves rights, life begins at conception, abortions are not safe, they do not believe that the government should fund abortions, and they believe that the scripture backs up their views. Pro-lifers also believe that the Roe v. Wade decision, legalizing abortion on demand in America, was one of the most important and devastating Supreme Court
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
In the simplest terms, abortion can be boiled down to two opposing sides. But before one can explore the sides to the argument, it must first be established exactly what abortion is defined as. Marquis states that abortion is any “action intended to bring about the death of a fetus for the sake of the woman who carries it,” (LaFollette 137). Those who argue for Pro-life state that abortion is immoral on the basis that the fetus is considered a human being from the moment conception. Notable philosophers like Marquis identify as pro-life because of their views of the personhood of the fetus while Warren identifies as pro-choice.
The Fonda scenario also helps the people-seed argument by saying that the seeds have no right to your home, you tried to prevent them from taking root there. You had no control over the condom breaking, you are not responsible for the life of the child. Thomson strongly believes that abortion is allowable in these two situations and also that opponents “right to life” argument is an invalid one that must be
In contrast, those on the Pro Choice side believe that abortion should be legal. They feel that individuals should have the right to choose what happens with their body. In addition, they argue that abortion is not murder due to the baby not being fully developed. I agree with Pro Life activists because they think that abortion should be considered murder. They consider a baby a human as soon as conception occurs.
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.
Unless any significant harm would be to come to either the mother, or the child, abortion should be illegal. If a woman would like to file for an abortion, she should have to go through a short process and examination to ensure that she has legitimate reasons to have one preformed. Accordingly, a woman should have to carry out her pregnancy if no harm would come to either her or the baby, where she can decide whether she would like to keep her child, or put it up for adoption to minimize the violations of life, liberty, and to utilize security rights only in extremely necessary
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.
I feel as we should have laws against abortions, and though some may argue against it, having the child versus not having the child, can be devastating. From drug use, to depression, to the very act of suicide, your chance goes up if you decide to abort the baby. Even though my stance against abortions are that
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
