What is the difference between murdering someone than killing a human being inside of you? It is still murder because the baby can still feel it. But for the baby it is worse because when you are having an abortion, the baby is having the worst part. The baby is being torn apart little by little. For example, how would a person feel being torn apart little by little, while being alive and that there is nothing to do to prevent that from happening.
The reasons for this position can be best understood by examining the arguments most regularly heard in opposition. 1. During the early stages of pregnancy, a fetus is still a human being, which has the right to live, so therefore, abortion is murder. “The fetus is not yet a human being because it cannot survive outside the uterus on its own. Abortion should not be considered murder if the fetus is not self-sustaining and requires the mother’s body and physical resources to survive”(Levay 1).
at birth?). If one believes life starts at conception then abortion would be regarded as immoral and wrong at any stage of the pregnancy. If one believes life starts when a heart beat is first registered, then only from then on the abortion would be regarded as immoral and wrong; and so on. This proceeds as true with supporting evidence straight from the categorical imperative – if one decides that killing their neighbor, parent or child is not okay, then killing a zygote/embryo/fetus is regarded as immoral. However another point of view could be taken.
The difference is that unplugging is abstaining from care, and abortion is deliberately killing. And a pregnant woman cannot abstain from care. A proper analogy would entail not being able to unplug even if you wanted to. Additionally, you have gun and you can use it to shoot the violinist, thus, freeing yourself. If it’s wrong to shoot the violinist, then it logically follows it is wrong to abort a
Secondly, abortion is not murder because there are reasons such as rape and possible birth defects that can contribute to the idea of having an abortion. Finally, a murder would have to involve a person outside of the womb in which the fetus is still inside. The first argument against the idea that abortion is murder is that it is the woman’s body and therefore it is her decision. Since it is the decision of the mother to terminate life it is not murder. The mother is willing for a certified doctor to perform the operation within her body.
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.
Why Abortion Should Be Illegal Abortion has been a popular debate in the United States, especially after the Supreme Court ruling in 1973 stating a woman has the right to an abortion. In my opinion, abortion is wrong and very unethical. There are some specific instances where abortion may be acceptable, but for the most part, abortion is an evil act. Abortion should be illegal because it is the killing of an innocent human, even if he or she has not been born yet. In fact, it is proven that babies can feel pain during an abortion.
Abortion is killing a fetus, a fetus is a person, all person has a right to life, killing someone with a right to life is always wrong. In Thompsons article, she portrays that this statement isn’t always true by making arguments in certain situations that abortion is okay. However, many might disagree with her arguments about abortion but, to which I see to be perfectly thought-out and, explained. A person is not morally bounded to do something for someone else such as to save their life. This is what Thompson suggest when she gives the argument about Henry Fonda’s hand.
Pro-choice means choosing abortion is a woman’s right that should not be limited by governmental or religious authority, and which outweighs any right claimed for an embryo or fetus. Pregnant women will resort to unsafe illegal abortions if there is no legal option. Pro-life means that individual human life begins at fertilization, therefore, abortion is the immoral killing of an innocent human being. Abortion inflicts suffering on the unborn child, and some people say that it is unfair to allow abortion when couples who cannot biologically conceive are waiting to adopt (Should Abortion be Legal). So what is the right choice, pro-life or pro-choice?
