The reasons for this position can be best understood by examining the arguments most regularly heard in opposition. 1. During the early stages of pregnancy, a fetus is still a human being, which has the right to live, so therefore, abortion is murder. “The fetus is not yet a human being because it cannot survive outside the uterus on its own. Abortion should not be considered murder if the fetus is not self-sustaining and requires the mother’s body and physical resources to survive”(Levay 1).
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.
As abortion is one of the most controversial topics, there has been a lot of debate about it, whether people are opposing or defending abortion. There is one worldview that defends the idea of abortion, which is the secular worldview. The secular worldview is people who view things based on human logic, understanding, intuition and reason, and it is not adopted from spiritual teachings or religion. According to the secular worldview, abortion is right because of women’s right, fetus in the womb is not yet human, and rape or incest. Abortion is a matter of life and death, which took the life of an unborn child.
Problem statement What are the causes of abortion and how can we solve this issue of abortion? Hypothesis Arguments My worldview falls under the Christian worldviews, because I am against this issue of abortion. I see abortion as a big problem in the society especially in our youth. According to me abortion it’s a sin, because when a woman terminate her pregnancy she is murdering the unborn baby which is the creation of God. Abortion is murder and killing a human being which is the image of God, it’s against the commandments of God which is wrong.
Doing this means according to the law, a innocent unborn infant cannot be sentenced to death for a crime he/she did not commit. A article in liveactionnews.com says, that even the highest known abortionists say that abortion is the act of murdering a baby. this is said by British abortionist Judith Arcana: “It is morally and ethically wrong to do abortions without acknowledging what it means to do them. I performed abortions, I have had an abortion and I am in favor of women having abortions when we choose to do so. But we should never disregard the fact that being pregnant means there is a baby growing inside of a woman, a baby whose life is ended.
What is the difference between murdering someone than killing a human being inside of you? It is still murder because the baby can still feel it. But for the baby it is worse because when you are having an abortion, the baby is having the worst part. The baby is being torn apart little by little. For example, how would a person feel being torn apart little by little, while being alive and that there is nothing to do to prevent that from happening.
Thomson hints to the idea that every human being has a right to life; therefore, the woman would have no moral obligation to continue with the pregnancy (Warren 309). Warren places much emphasis on Thomson’s argument for the probability of it being a strong stance for the permissibility of abortion or a strong argument that abortion is murder, which is unique in and of itself because it has the possibility of arguing for or against abortion. Thomson construes two steps in which the moral status of abortion should be determined by. The first step is determining the true moral status of a fetus and the second is creating a distinguishable difference between the rights of the fetus vs. the rights of the woman (Warren 309). Warren structures her argument like that of Thomson’s by creating two steps which will support her stance that abortion is morally
Abortion,which is defined as a deliberate termination of a human, is one of the most debatable issues in society. Abortion is about allowing women the right to make choices about when they want to have children, in relation to their age,health, financial stability or if they were raped.There are many reasons to why a woman might want to get an abortion and it should not be up to the Government to determine the personal right of what a woman wants to do with her own body, especially if that woman can not afford to care for the child. Moreover, this argument is a matter of morals, those who see it allowable should be provided with the means to do so but others who don't see it allowable don't have to choose to give up on a child. Those kids who are not aborted sometimes grow up in a destructive environment and their basic needs are not provided. There are many reasons why some people are against abortion, and there are also many reasons as to why some people advocate abortion.
An unskilled medic will result in an unsafe procedure,and vise versa. In places where safe, legal, clinical abortions are illegal many women perform them by themselves at home, which is very risky and can result in severe infection, and even death. The pro-life stance on abortion is the belief that abortion is equivalent to murder. The ideology behind the stance is based off of
Abortion providers and those around them are terrified. The number of doctors that provide abortion has dropped drastically in recent years. Anti-abortion protestors are terrifying, stalking, harassing and intimidating abortion doctors and the those around them. I feel this is domestic terrorism in which you don’t have to make abortion illegal to make it impossible as said in this documentary.
Another ethical issue surrounding abortion revolves around the rights of the mother versus the rights of the fetus. The idea of choice that a woman has a right to choose what she does with her body comes in here. But is a woman’s right to choose greater than a fetus’s right to life? In the pro-choice view, a common argument is that abortion is legally permissible, regardless of the morality involved. A woman has a basic right to make up her own mind about choices of pregnancy or abortion, and her right to bodily integrity prevails any potential rights that the fetus may or may not have (Baird & Rosenbaum 2001).
Abortion is full of excuses, going against God’s will, and murder. America should reconsider the laws and regulations of the countries soon to be mothers. Because abortion is a deliberate termination of a human life, women should not legally have the option to choose one. Making excuses for reasons a mother can kill her baby is wrong. For example, a mother having a baby she doesn’t want is no excuse to end a life.
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).
Everyone is entitled to a panel and to express their opinion. In the cases of abortion, the fetus does not have a voice, this image supports the fact that fetuses do havea right to be born and to a chance at life. The image itself does not specifically say that abortion is wrong, it just brings an ethical and emotional appeal to the audience. The audience for this image spans to those who are contemplating abortion, are against abortion, who study and are advocates for the law and protection of human rights, those who do not know whether to support abortion or not, and it can also reach out to those who have had an abortion. The design would appeal to all of those forms of an audience.
