Various opinions that are worth thinking and considering exists in the argument of abortion although it is religiously refused, medically unsafe, and irresponsible, some people still regard it as a woman’s right. (procon.org) One of the first reasons I don’t support abortion is that abortion defines the meaning of life and death. Kerby discusses in her article “Arguments against Abortion” medical reasons why abortion should not be legalized, he asked an important question that should have a strict answer within our community, isn’t death declared with a cessation of a heartbeat? Then why doesn’t onset of a heartbeat define life? And if a heartbeat defines life, then abortion should definitely be outlawed.
“Ethics is the study of how the society can think, understand, and examine its norms and practices with regard to living a moral life” (nathaniel, 2008). Abortion is a term that deliver prematurely, end of pregnancy were the result shows no childbirth due to many reasons, divided into the medical need or to the mother self perception, so is abortion an ethical issue? It is considered an ethical dilemma? There are many opinion about how and when abortion can conduct. A wide-ranging agreement present, however, abortion is acceptable in the limit of medical issues as a result of miscarriage, birth defects or when it’s danger on the mother health.

Another common philosophy is that pregnancy is a consequence of not using contraception during sex. People claim that suffering through a pregnancy, giving birth, and raising the unwanted child is the responsible thing to do if one gets pregnant. However, some would find that the more responsible solution is getting an abortion. Not everyone has access to contraception, or has been educated on how to use it. More work should be done to educate people on and create more access to contraception rather than punishing those who were not taught.
Stereotype refers to the cognition aspect of feeling towards a given group of people. It is the picture that most people engulf in their minds about other people. However the picture painted by people with regard to other people is not necessarily a true depiction of the reality. Stereotypes hold the fixed view that people of a certain community or group exhibit specific character traits, which influence their behavior in general. Stereotypes as regards gender, refer to certain traits presumably adhered to males and females in the society, that define and distinguish these genders.
Applying the Kantian moral theory one will see how killing a fetus is not only the killing of an innocent life but it is also treating someone as just a mean instead of an end. Every person in this world was a fetus at one point, growing and learning to survive inside of their mother’s womb. If a study was conducted to question each person in this world, it would be reasonable to believe that each of us living today would now be opposed to being aborted as a fetus. So even if one would believe that having an abortion is morally permissible, it is not possible for them to see a world where everyone would be alright with being aborted as a fetus, thus abortion then fails the Universal Law Formulation (Gensler, 89). With this scenario, it is unfeasible to say to oneself that they would have been okay with being aborted.

Going to the store doesn 't take long just to get one thing and make sure a baby wont end up in someones stomach and end up pregnant.
ANALYSIS The author argues that the debate of cultural relativism towards women’s human rights raced from the fundamental arguments of women’s rights in order to control their bodies, free from the constraints of others, whether they are the community or family members. “The reservations were predominantly motivated by religious objections (based in Islam and Catholicism) to abortion and family planning services.“ In my opinion, Oonagh’s argument is not that strong, it is not completely right and not completely wrong also.
