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.
Late-term abortion supporters believe a fetus isn't a fetus until it is birthed. However, experts like Marquis believe they are morally wrong. Marquis believes when the baby is first conceived it is human (1). A baby is a human at conception because of the morality (2). "We do treat being both living and human as having a moral significance "(2).
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).
My opinion about the movement changed when my neighbor’s daughter was raped a few years ago. She had a pregnancy scare and the rapist, although behind bars, threatened to kill her and himself if she kept the child. It was then that I started analyzing the pro-choice rhetoric and the values the supporters hold. Nevertheless, this is not to say that a woman should procure an abortion any time she wants. The pro-life movement uses most of its rhetoric to punish women who consider abortion According to Graham, pro-lifers explore the pregnant woman’s rights vs. the fetus’ rights, which are two types of rights in one body.
Abolish Abortion Did you know that just in the United States over 3,000 people have abortions every day? An abortion is when a woman is injected with a fatal substance to kill their unborn baby. It is legal in all 50 states except one type of abortion procedure; Partial-birth-abortion. Women have abortions for many reasons, some being that they are not ready for that kind of commitment or they have been raped and got pregnant. An abortion should never be an option in any case because it’s considered as murder, it causes pain to the person and baby during and after the procedure, and there are other choices to choose from including adoption.
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.
Likewise, abortion appears to be morally wrong because of the potential agency account. The potential agency account states that even at the earliest stages of the fetus’s development; a zygote has the potential of having moral rights as an actual person who is fully developed. Ultimately, the right to life argument concludes that even if the mother has a right to life and what to do with her body the right to life will always exceed the mother’s decision if she decides to abort the fetus (Leary 2018). This reason ties up to the prohibitive view which strongly believes that there is no such thing as a “cut off” stage for a developing fetus and that it is declared a person at the moment of conception. Abortion in this sense can be concluded that it is not morally permissible.
Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice: Annihilating the Abortion Argument says, “In light of the fact that both science and Scripture corroborate the view that abortion is the painful killing of an innocent human being, it is incumbent upon Christians to do everything in their power to halt the spread of this enormous evil.” You wouldn’t like to get killed with no chance to say no or no chance to say no or to put up a fight. Killing an innocent person is wrong and you should be put in jail for doing that because your baby should have the chance to live. Even if you don’t want the baby you could keep it for the nine months and then give it to a family that can’t have kids and could give someone a good
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.
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.
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.
Even if a mother’s life is at risk a pro-life advocate wouldn’t see it necessary for the abortion procedure. Numerous physicians have stated that it’s rare for abortion to be necessary to save a mother 's life and even if it were it is wrong to intentionally kill a innocent person to save another. For many pro-choice advocates the life and health of the mother are frequently used as reasons to keep abortion legal. If the mother has a medical issue which can complicate the pregnancy then it is medically necessary to have an abortion. In some cases where the mother happens to be a teen girl her body isn’t ready yet for childbirth.
