A sizeable portion of the argument for or against abortion is based on science and the definition of when a human life begins. However, Christie’s only mention of anything remotely scientific was her statement that “… no scientist questions the fact that a zygote, embryo, fetus and infant are all human beings in different stages of development” (1). For those strongly rooted in their pro-choice opinions, Christie’s blunt statement could cause disagreement and questioning in regards to other scientific details concerning the human stages of development. Many pro-choice advocates believe and could argue that zygotes and embryos are not technically living because they are not self-sustainable and they do not yet have brain activity. Despite the possible arguments against Christie’s effectiveness, her status as a doctor proves that she understands abortion and facts about abortion, yet she chose not to include them as persuasive strategies in her article.

He knew that he was going to die and accepted it so he wanted to comfort and stay with the ones he loved instead of running off for his own benefit (pars. 27-29).

Your child may even be a different race which can bring on unwanted questions or stares. Most of these children are adopted through county foster or adoption programs, which keeps the cost of adoption
