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).

The pro-life movement argues that even a non-viable, undeveloped human life must be protected by the government.

This article talks about physician-assisted deaths from a Kantian theory standpoint, in the article it states that “the decision to ends one’s life is itself not autonomous” (Dinh, 478). Autonomy follows the idea of making own decisions for you, not others without inappropriate influence; Kant believes that this procedure violates autonomy and therefore should not be done. Although the article is slated from Kant’s viewpoint, it is also important to remember the other viewpoint.

In this essay I will give an account of both the deontological and utilitarian approaches. However, I shall argue against this belief on the basis that : 1 ) Deontology ignores the effects not having an abortion has on the child and the parents 2 ) The abortion of foetuses with severe birth defects may be for the greater good from an act utilitarianism
