Life is so important to God that he says anyone who murders should die. In the book of Exodus, God said whoever kills a baby should suffer the same fate. Also, God does not desire for his people to decrease those who are in his image. On the practical side of the pro-life argument, according to philosopher Erica Bachiochi, abortions harm women. There have been studies that show women who have had abortions have an increased rate of anxiety, depression and suicide rate.
No baby should be deprived of the chance to grow up. This awareness poster shows exactly how abortion effects both the mother and the child. The child dies an unjust death, and the mother is left knowing that she is the cause of the end of that life. Anti-abortionists can range from the radical to the near indifferent, but this advertisement shows that there are people out there fighting for the right of a
Abortion should be illegal because medical practitioners who perform an abortion is taking the life of a living human being, capable of breathing, capable of crying and nurturing and cutting its life short before it has the opportunity to realize its potential. It should be illegal because the mother who is supposed to love it more than anyone else in the world, who is supposed to protect it is complicit in its pain, suffering and
The audience recognizes that although abortion is cruel, it is needed. However, abortion itself is also cruel considering that it is also unfair to kill the fetus before it was born. Here, we can understand Sallie Tisdale’s inner conflict. She states that “[a]bortion is the narrowest edge between kindness and cruelty” (Tisdale 420). If she shows kindness to the women who wants to abort their children, the fetus would have to be killed.
God created us in his image,which gives us a value, and we do not determine if a baby has the right to live based on how we think humans are. All humans have thought on the idea of abortion, and how painful that is to a baby. Pro-choice people say that babies cannot feel pain before the twentieth week, and make the procedures of abortion before the twentieth week most of the time. Research has shown that babies are fully developed at the twentieth week, and can feel pain and recognize things. “And bans on abortions starting at eighteen to twenty weeks of pregnancy, premised on the dubious assertion that fetuses can feel pain at this stage” (Borgmann).
Abortion is an act of ending a pregnancy by removing the fetus from the womb before it grows. Abortion, which occurs extemporaneously, is known as miscarriage, and if it occurs purposely then it is known as an induced abortion. Nowadays, modern methods for abortion include surgery or medication or both. Mostly, abortions are the results of unwanted and unintended pregnancies. Abortion has become one of the most controversial issues in today’s society.
Unwanted pregnancies can be very stressful on a woman. Whether or not women have the right to an abortion is a very controversial subject. Millions of American women have aborted a child and the pain, loss and emotional need to justify what was done, both on the part of the mother and on the part of her loved ones is strong and deep. Some believe that having an abortion is seriously wrong because killing a fetus is the same as killing a person, whereas others believe that women have the right to make choices about their own bodies. Women should be able to have an abortion if they are too young or unable to take care of a baby and also if the pregnancy negatively affects the women or her babies health.
The plan b pill is very wrong in many ways because it causes abortion. Since it is killing babies, they should never be allowed to people that are not ready to step up to their actions. It works like any other abortion drug it thins the lining of the mothers uterus so that the baby cannot develop and the thus dies. The morning after pill is the most awful ending of an unborn life (should the morning). Quite a few very religious people argued that plan b pill is wrong since it includes the death of an unborn and an undeveloped fetus.
Question 1 Don Marquis believed that abortion is morally wrong, he supports this by uttering that what makes killing an unborn baby or fetus wrong is by depriving the right of living a life of future experiences, activities, and accomplishments, as these elements are what we consider valuable in someone’s life. According to Marquis killing a human being is equivalent to killing a fetus, (even though a fetus is not completely developed, and it’s not classified a human being) because terminating a pregnancy for whatever motive it could be, it robs the fetus of its inherent value, same with killing a person, by doing it so, you are stealing a person’s right to live, and taking away their purpose in this world. Continuously an example of this could be that fetus could become the future pioneer of modern medicine or technology, this is a valuable future not just for the fetus itself but to the world, so killing the fetus, will also prevent of new discoveries in medicine or technology which contributes to the rest of the world, so Marquis concluded that any action that averts a potential future its morally wrong. Question 6
Justified Euthanasia “How terrible it is to love something death can touch” (Albus Dumbledore), is something everyone questions to themselves. There is a great desire to avoid it, but death is inescapable. Death approaches over time or unexpectedly and happens to everyone. In hospitals, a patient’s chance of life can hang by a choice. Euthanasia, is common to families who have loved ones in an incurable condition facing the inevitable.
They are pro-life which means they are anti-abortion and believe that every child deserves a chance to live. Oregon Right to Life posts about the statistics of abortions and informs people of how abortions are really performed. “Science is always finding out new things about prenatal development. It’s time we treat these babies like the human being they are.” In saying this they are advocating for babies rights, whether born or unborn. A trend in their posts has always been the organization of Planned Parenthood and the horrors that are committed there.
Genesis 9:6 states that whoever sheds the blood of man, by man must his blood shed because human beings mirror the image of God. Also the sin of child sacrifice is one of the leading reasons that the Assyrians take over the Kingdom of Israel and send the Israelites into exile. 2 Kings 17:17-18 further explains how the Assyrians remove the Israelites from the land for sacrificing their sons and daughters as offerings. Repeatedly the Bible bans the shedding of innocent blood, and the most innocent being of all is an unborn child. The purpose and effects of abortion are that it sheds the blood of the innocent, thus abortion is biblically
But pro-life advocates argue that when a woman is pregnant, there is another body involved. They argue that the unborn body has the same rights as any other person and has the right to live. Pro-life advocates believe the presence of human life alone defines personhood. An unborn baby is a person just like everyone else that walks on the earth. They may be inside a womb and depended on their mother but they are still people.
Donald Trump believes, “‘banning all federal taxpayer funding of abortions will save the lives of over one million Americans from abortions’”(Steven). This statement is false and inaccurate. Instead of those women going and getting an abortion safely carried out at Planned Parenthood, she will go get an abortion in a more dangerous way ultimately putting her life at risk too, which will lead to higher deaths. As Taylor Jacobs said in the article on the Odyssey online, “ Regardless of your personal opinions regarding abortions, it is not possible to stop every woman from getting the procedure if they are unprepared to have a child, no matter what programs are defunded. Thousands of women die from unsafe abortions per year and defunding Planned Parenthood would make getting an abortion even more difficult and likely increase the numbers of deaths.” Jacobs clearly sums up the perfect argument against what Trump was trying to say.
Since data can be used for both sides of the argument it makes this point completely invalid. Secondly, Pro-Life advocates make the argument that abortion should not be used because adoption is a perfectly good alternative. This is imply a false statement because abortion and adoption are two extremely different actions. Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy and adoption is the giving away of a child for personal reasons. In one case the baby is definitely alive, adoption, and in the other case it is debatable whether the fetus is alive or not, abortion.
