Problem statement What are the causes of abortion and how can we solve this issue of abortion? Hypothesis Arguments My worldview falls under the Christian worldviews, because I am against this issue of abortion. I see abortion as a big problem in the society especially in our youth. According to me abortion it’s a sin, because when a woman terminate her pregnancy she is murdering the unborn baby which is the creation of God. Abortion is murder and killing a human being which is the image of God, it’s against the commandments of God which is wrong.
Doing this means according to the law, a innocent unborn infant cannot be sentenced to death for a crime he/she did not commit. A article in liveactionnews.com says, that even the highest known abortionists say that abortion is the act of murdering a baby. this is said by British abortionist Judith Arcana: “It is morally and ethically wrong to do abortions without acknowledging what it means to do them. I performed abortions, I have had an abortion and I am in favor of women having abortions when we choose to do so. But we should never disregard the fact that being pregnant means there is a baby growing inside of a woman, a baby whose life is ended.
The author states that the scripture mentions about miscarriage but it seems that the Old Testament or New Testament period did not consider abortion as a preferable option, primarily because God commanded the living and human being to have dominion over the Earth. It begs the question when and how humans came to think about abortion? As men and women, respectively, each one understand his or her participation in the reproduction and giving birth to children, I do wonder what made humans think about destroying a life, even though one want to avoid being judgmental in asking if the child is a human? Looking back at the Old Testament, and the first murder committed by a brother, one can compare the cause of killing. It is jealousy and fear of being better than the other.
One major point of controversy within the United States presently concerns whether or not a woman has the right to abort her fetus if need be. The debate consists of two sides: the “pro-choice” movement (which claims that a woman has ultimate autonomy over her own body) and the “pro-life” movement (which believes that abortion is unethical and akin to homicide). As a liberal who firmly stands behind the “pro-choice” agenda, I am often guilty of concluding that all anti-abortionists are all overzealous fundamentalist Christians who blatantly disregard the notion of freedom of choice to support “irrational religious dogma” (223). However, in the essay “Why Abortion is Immoral,” philosopher Don Marquis attempts to remove this negative stigma
The issue only became illegal when “quickening” occurs. The term is used to describe when a mother feels the fetus moving. It was a religious belief that when conception first occurs and in the early stages of pregnancy human life did not exist yet. However, around the 1880’s, abortion became criminalized with the exception that it could be used to save a woman’s life. A ton of people went against abortions because they saw that since most of the decline in birth rates were from women that had Northern European backgrounds and believe that it was the destruction of the race.
“I cannot understand anti-abortion arguments that centre on the sanctity of life. As a species we've fairly comprehensively demonstrated that we don't believe in the sanctity of life. The shrugging acceptance of war, famine, epidemic, pain and life-long poverty shows us that, whatever we tell ourselves, we've made only the most feeble of efforts to really treat human life as sacred.” - Caitlin Moran Abortion does what contraception does not necessarily do: it works. Let the abortion be as it is, it is the mother’s body and she can abort it as she wishes. The mother is not neglectful to have a baby, the mother may not be able to financially provide, the mother could have been raped, the mother could have not believed in adoption.
Thomson then shifts the argument towards the definition of abortion, according to opposing parties, which is that it is directly killing the child and how it is connected to the woman’s rights and the analogy. This idea leads to the four logical trains of reasoning. The first is that directly killing a human being is always not permissible, then an abortion may not be carried out. The second is that killing a person who is innocent is murder, than abortion may not be performed, and the third is that one should refrain from killing a innocent human is more important than keeping another alive, an abortion should not be done. The fourth is “if one's only options are directly killing an innocent person or letting a person die, one must prefer
Many people have opposing views whether abortion is a moral right that should be permissible. Even though that a life is being “taken away” and not giving it a chance to experience said life, the right to life argument is hypocritical and contradicts its own moral beliefs. In this essay, I will first explain what the right to life argument is against abortion, why Judith Jarvis Thomson thinks it fails and then will give my explanation why Thomson’s argument succeeds that abortion is morally permissible even if the fetus has a right to life. I will also consider objections and show why they fail. The right to life argument believes that abortion is morally wrong because of the simple fact that a life is literally being taken away by force—that it is equivalent to murder.
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.
Her mom tells her to keep the baby, but Jane doesn’t really know if she should. She then goes to her boyfriend for his opinion since it is his baby too. He tells her he is not ready for a child and that she needs to have an abortion. She has two people telling her two completely different things, so she doesn’t know what to do. Even though there are pressures to have an abortion women should not because it is inhumane, harmful to the mother, and harmful to the baby.
In addition, if you are robbing an unborn child of its future then how would this matter if the fetus lacks awareness? When someone is alive and is murdered they are currently living and are on track for a future. Marquis was not specific about which abortions are moral or abortions that occur because the mother’s life is at risk. While his basic argument was killing is wrong, including abortion, because it robs the person of their future he could have provided stronger stories to relate with his arguments. In Marquis argument every fetus has a future and if an abortion occurs, then the fetus is not given the opportunity to its future.
Also, the hospital bill for giving birth can be in the thousands of dollars by itself (1). Another reason a woman may not want to go through a pregnancy is because people are cruel. Teens and young women especially get the bad end of the situation because it is not seen as ideal for young women or women who are not married to have a child. As for those who are pro life, they also have quite a debate as to why abortion should be illegal. The number one argument would be that abortion is the killing of a live fetus and that is murder (1).
