In God's words a baby is always a blessing. “Behold, children are a gift of the Lord , the fruit of the womb is a reward”. (Psalms 127:3 the holy bible) “God is against any and every abortion even in the event of rape”.” You shall not commit murder”. (Exodus 20:13-15 Holy bible) If a woman is committing adultery outside of her marriage and becomes pregnant, abortion should not be an option because she was not faithful and it wasn't the baby's
If you ask a person about murder, they would probably respond that it is bad and should not happen, but what if you ask them about abortion? Is not abortion murdering a baby in the comfortable and safe womb of the mother? This issue has caused many discussions, because even though it is obvious that you are killing a baby, people do not consider it as murder. Abortion is painfully taking a baby´s right to live just because the embryos are not considered human beings. God created us in his image,which gives us a value, and we do not determine if a baby has the right to live based on how we think humans are.
The audience recognizes that although abortion is cruel, it is needed. However, abortion itself is also cruel considering that it is also unfair to kill the fetus before it was born. Here, we can understand Sallie Tisdale’s inner conflict. She states that “[a]bortion is the narrowest edge between kindness and cruelty” (Tisdale 420). If she shows kindness to the women who wants to abort their children, the fetus would have to be killed.
Moreover, Lisa has a moral obligation to take care of this life form. Callahan would also believe that society has taught “women to expect protection from rape,” (Callahan 170) and would possibly blame the incident on Lisa. The idea that she would be put against her offspring is offensive morally, destructive psychologically and politically. Callahan believes that Lisa has an obligation, no matter the fact that no consent was provided in sexual
Ultimately, the decision to end a pregnancy shouldn’t be taken lightly, but should be the woman’s choice, and no one else’s. It is not up to one group of people to decide what is ethically appropriate for everyone else. Frankley, the pro-life movement is sexist and abortions are justifiable because the fetus is not yet a person. In the Journal Of Philosophy, Don Marquis wrote an article
But, the argument is still wrong. If this argument is applied to my normative ethical theory, it falls flat. A fetus, or a baby, is created by God, so killing the baby dishonors what God has created. While God does give us the ability to choose how we live our lives, He does not want us to make choices that will destroy what He has created to share with us or made to make us enjoy life. If I was told the only way I could keep on living was to have an abortion, I would let my baby have a shot at life.
An article by Susan Markens found that in most cases genetic counselors attempt to remain neutral in presenting patient with the data available on risks and benefits. However, the very idea of genetic testing can be seen as suggestive or as a recommendation for abortion. In the case of Nancy, the patient has the right to all the information available on the risks associated with a fetus with Down Syndrome in order to make an information decision. However, the ultimate decision is hers and should not be urged by the
With that argument, how come women can't breastfeed with her body to care for her children? How come women are okay to sell their bodies and sometimes become too extreme for the public to see, but one cannot breastfeed for the welfare of her baby she loves and cares for? I would like to point out that all men and women are important but this issue is certainly taking the rights of women and mothers who gave birth to us and raised us at least some time in our lives. We need to help them be recognized again until they are not hurt or discriminated just because they don't fit to what ignorant or desirous young or old, and immature people stop having to spit out what they think to the woman who may be going through some hardship after giving birth. It is likely that women get depression after pregnancy and birth, it is common.
So, the mother gives up the child for adoption and then a couple who possibly could not have a child could become parents. The birth mother of the child is happy because she does not have the burden of raising a child that she did not wish for and a couple, and their immediate family, receive happiness from a child that has now entered their life. In this scenario, questions like “what if no one ever adopt the child?” arises. It could be so, but a child can still have the potential of happiness in life through a life they were granted by the mother going through with the pregnancy. In this view, an abortion is not morally permissible because by not getting one it
He thinks that fetus has the right to live and they should not be aborted because when the fetus develops, he incur all the rights which a human being should have. However, on the other hand, Bonnie Steinbock in her article “Most Abortions Are Morally Legitimate”, she says that abortions and morally acceptable because fetuses are not living beings, hence they are unconscious and don’t have any moral status because they are unaware about their interests and doesn’t feel pain or anything. She says fetuses does not have any human being rights and it depends on the mother what she wants for her body and she has all the rights to decide whether she wants to be pregnant or not because she is a living being.
Usually the only way they get to have a child is through adoption, or artificial insemination. When gays become parents they get to show how much they love and care for their child. (3). Children that grow up in foster care do not get the opportunity to grow up with a family. Children without parents deserve the opportunity to be raised by a gay or lesbian couple just as much as a gay or lesbian couple deserves to become parents.
Since the fetus is depended on the mother does that make them have less rights than any other person? These questions must be answered before abortion can be ruled to be unconstitutional. Until the public becomes more aware of these pressing questions abortion will still remain legal and constitutional. Both sides have legitimate arguments to defend their beliefs and neither group should be looked down upon by the other for having different values and beliefs. Abortion to this day is still a very controversial topic and one of the most debated issues.
