To them an abortion is taking someone’s life and possibly committing a sin. Liberals are the complete opposite they believe that women have the right to decide over their own bodies, and that a fetus is not yet a human life. Therefore, I do not support abortion. My believe is that abortion is taking someone’s life who didn 't ask to be created. In that way, I guess you can say that
Abortion is the deliberate termination of a pregnancy. It is an ethical issue in today’s society that can be seen from two angles, morally right and morally wrong. The subject of abortion is likely to cause arguments as both sides of the argument have strong points. The main argumentative point that disagree with abortion is that it is wrong to kill innocent human beings as life begins at contraception, this means that a foetus is a human being which means killing it would be wrong, meaning that abortion is wrong. Another argument against abortion is that allowing abortion is “legalising killing and legalising killing reduces peoples respect for life” (Levitt, 2005).
Abortion dehumanizes life to the point of death; nothing can justify the death and dehumanization of a baby. Today, pro-choice individuals try to justify abortion as a woman’s right to control her own body. However, this reason is self-centered and ignores the fact that the life in the woman’s womb is human in nature. This reasoning also puts the woman’s personal interests and comforts above the value of the life of the baby.
A second reason why abortion is wrong is because it deprives the fetus from his future. When we decide to kill a fetus then we are taking away from him a future like ours. The argument is as follows : (1) it is impermissible to kill humans, who if lived, would have a future like ours, (2) if abortion is not done, the fetus would have future as we do have, (3) so it is wrong to kill the fetus (4) therefore abortion is impermissible. A similar argument was given by Don Marquis in his article “Why Abortion is Immoral”. He stated that what makes killing wrong is neither the effect on the murder, nor the effect on the victim’s relatives or friends, but the effect is on the victim himself.
bortion can be defined as the deliberate causing of the death of a fetus, either by directly killing it or by causing its expulsion from the womb before it is "viable." With "the killing of an innocent human being without his/her consent is murder" and "abortion is the killing of an innocent human being without his/her consent" are premises to an argument with a conclusion of "Abortion is murder." Lets break down the first premise. This premise is correct by saying that it is not right to murder somebody without his/her consent. But one has to rebut the phrase human being.
The government must have certain laws in order to maintain control, murder is against the law, whether an adult is killed or a child. Abortion should be illegal in the United States. Termination is a last resort option; it kills an innocent child and gives people less options to adopt. Abortion is unconstitutional and should not be practiced in the United States There are other options besides abortion, women can have the baby and take care of the child or can have the baby and put the child up for
Thesis: You do not have the right to tell a rape victim that she cannot get an abortion. Her rights were taking away from her when being raped, why should we now take her rights away from her free will. God gave us free will to make our own decisions. So why does the government think they have the right to take our rights away. Logos: The reason I believe rape victims should be allowed abortion is because it can help them put there assault behind them so they can recover more quickly and avoid the additional trauma of having to give birth to a rapist baby.
There is a divide among the people of the United States surrounding the idea of women being able to have abortions. Some people strongly believe that women should not be able to have abortions, they consider themselves to be pro-life. While other people firmly believe that women have the right to have abortions, those people are considered to be pro-choice. Women across the world should have the right to choose whether or not they want to have abortions because they have the right to their own bodies. The argument for people who believe in pro-choice is that the government should not be able to decide whether or not a woman should continue a pregnancy because it is her body.
It should be noted here that while I agree that abortion is permissible, I am opposed to the claim that infanticide is permissible under regular circumstances. Moreover, while I agree with Singer’s final claim about abortion, I do not agree with his entire argument pertaining to infanticide for reasons described later in this paper. Further, I shall address a supporting view by advancing Judith Jarvis Thompson’s “Feminist Argument” for abortion as well as refuting an opposing view held by Don Marquis in an article titled “Why Abortion is Immoral.” The central argument against
Abortions are sad and unfortunate, but they will continue to happen, that is the reality of the world we live in. However, if we as a society release abortion from the stigma surrounding it, we will be able to begin finding a solution that won’t have to do with the law, it will have to do with being ready to help the women in these positions. Unsafe and illegal abortions are even more sad than legal and professional ones. To reduce abortions, we should be focused on contraceptives and sex education, not punishing those in this horrible
Marquis’ thesis is as follows “That abortion is, with rare exceptions, seriously immoral.” Prima facie is defined as “based on the first impression; accepted as correct until proved otherwise.” Marquis is saying that abortion, at first glance, is seriously wrong but in some cases, it can be proven morally permissible. These exceptions include rape, when the woman’s life is in danger due to the pregnancy or if the fetus is anencephalic (a congenital condition in where the fetus has some or all of the developing skull leaving brain matter exposed). I like the fact that Marquis takes into account congenital anomalies, because the fetus would most likely suffer and to be taken to term would cause the fetus pain and a very short life span. Marquis first states that killing an adult is wrong. What makes the act of murder immoral is, not losing the physical aspect of being alive, or the pain caused to our family and friends, but because we are completely eradicating their future, robbing them of their future of value, that they would’ve experienced had they not died, and that is what makes it unjust.
If a being has a right to life then it is wrong to kill it. Abortion is the termination of a fetus; therefore abortion is wrong (Thomson, 48). Much of the debate on whether if abortion is permissible or not gets caught up on this first premise that fetuses obtain personhood at conception and to deny this premise would be to claim that personhood does not start at conception which would make this argument fail. Thompson does not believe this claim that personhood is achieved at conception, but she feels that the permissibility of abortion can still be argued for even if premise (1) were true. She does this by attacking premise (3); that if a being has a right to life, then it is wrong to kill it.
With Trump wanting to remove these services can cause difficulties within a woman’s health. “Yes, because as long as they do the abortion, I am not for funding Planned Parenthood… As long as they’re involved with abortion, as far as I’m concerned forget it, I wouldn’t fund them regardless. I would defund Planned Parenthood because of their view and the fact of their work on abortion…. I am for defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they are involved with abortion” (Donald Trump 1). Having an abortion is inhumane, but removing planned parenthood organizations because of a women’s decision of having an abortion shouldn’t be a concern for the government.
So I do not agree with Thomson because I do not agree with abortion except in some very especial circumstances. I believe as a human we have to save live. Abortion should to stop! Be killing innocent’s children. In order to find a reason to do abortion for example a single mother; I highly disagree with this excuse because those mothers’ knows about their situation, why do not prevent to get pregnant?
Because of the many risks, abortion should be limited to help save the unborn lives and help not ruin a woman’s life forever. Abortion should not exactly be made illegal, but it should be allowed under certain circumstances such as rape. Presidential nominee Mitt Romney told CBS News that he is “in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother.” (Romney) Rape is one of the limits that abortion should tighten up on and let be legal. Another reason why abortion should be limited is because it makes health risks for the mother. “A mother’s health is an important part of their life and they can getting an abortion risks their mental and physical health.”(Mott) Risking health to get an abortion is not worth it and should not be allowed unless under certain circumstances.
