1. Compare and Contrast A. Summary for first author U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, from “Why Abortion Is Bad for America,” The Human Life Review (2012), discusses why he is against abortions from mainly a moral viewpoint, rather than a political viewpoint. Overall, he states that an unborn child is still a human being and that they have the right to live. Rubio states agrees that the mother has her own right to do whatever she wants, but when there is a child living in her, that child has its own right. Therefore, the mothers “are the voice of children who cannot speak for themselves.” B.

I also agree that government should not interfere with doctor-patient relationship because it is necessary that the patient trust their own health provider to make the best decision for their own health. B. The weakness with my side’s (the one I most agree with) argument What I do not like about Rubio’s speech was that he did not make exceptions to any rape victims or health factors that could put either the mother or child’s life at risk. I believe that abortions should be restricted to a certain extent, that being if the victim was raped or the mother/child’s life is on the line. Although if the mother was raped, I do want them to have the baby and just give them to adoption services. 5.
