Pro-Life: The Opposite of Pro-Death - Pro-Life: The Opposite of Pro-Death Careful attention to the truth has never been standard operating procedure for pro-abortion advocates. Therefore, it should not be any suprise that half-truths, and misrepresentations, and many outright lies have permeated the pro-abortion propaganda campaign. Pro-choice is just a phrase used by people who know the absurdity of legal abortions and infanticide. Pro-life advocates have a more simple and straight forward approach: Pro-life is not the opposite of pro-choice, but the opposite of pro-death....   [tags: Anti-Abortion Pro Life] 899 words

Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life: No Correct Answer - Abortion is the ending of a pregnancy before birth; it causes the termination of the embryo or fetus inside the women. There are two different types of abortion, a spontaneous abortion, which is also known as a miscarriage, and an induced abortion, where the embryo or fetus is purposely removed from the women’s body. The topic of induced abortion has been widely debated for hundreds of years. The issue of abortion was argued way back in the time of the ancient Hebrews. In the United States it became illegal around the mid 1800’s and not until the 1960’s was the argument for the right to abort brought back to the table....   [tags: Abortion, Argumentative, Pro-Choice] 1703 words

Pro-Choice Argument - Pro-Choice Argument Thou shalt not kill; one-tenth of what may arguably be the most famous guidelines of morality in the western culture, and also the main driving force for pro-life advocates. The argument supporting their beliefs typically starts with the premises that a fetus is a person, and to destroy or to kill a person is unethical. Therefore abortion, the premeditated destruction of a human being, is murder, and consequently unethical. I deny the fact that the fetus, what I will refer to as an embryo up to 22 weeks old, has the right to live....   [tags: Abortion, Argumentative, Pro-Choice]

So abortion should not be considered as the only way to get out of a pregnancy because the woman could get breast cancer after the abortion process is over, the person may experience psychological damage due to aborting the child, and the woman is ending a human life.

Life As A Commodity - Life As A Commodity Last night, George W. Bush, the President of the United States, announced a compromise policy on Federal support for stem cell research. His announcement made few people happy because it cut a path straight down the middle of the issue and carefully avoided making any significant ethical decisions about it. At the ethical heart of the matter is a question about using a human fetus for scientific (read "medical") research. For significant research to happen, the fetus must be "alive." After the research has begun (meaning removal of stem cells), the fetus is "dead." Thus, while there has been scientific research on human beings as long as anyone can remember, this research arguably leads directly to the death of the human involved....   [tags: Abortion Pro Choice Life Essays] 1182 words

Abortion: Pro and Con - Abortion: Pro and Con In a pluralistic culture of unwanted pregnancy, there exists a contradiction between a relative sense of morality and the democratic ideal of free choice.  Aristotle provided the first written record of this irresolvable contradiction in his book Politics, saying, "When couples have children in excess, let abortion be procured before sense and life have begun; what may or may not be lawfully done in these cases depends on the question of life and sensation." (1)  The controversy has always consisted of two sides: "Pro-Lifers", who believe that abortion is morally wrong and should not be allowed, and "Pro-Choicers", who support the woman's right to choose the outcome of her pregnancy in all cases.  There is also a large group of people who fall somewhere in between, believing that abortion should only be allowed under certain circumstances.  To this day, abortion continues to be a topic of dispute, with each side offering many of the same arguments that have been offered for several millennia.  Those concerned with the issue saw this played out most recently in the presidential election, a very close race in which abortion was a key factor in many citizens' votes....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics] 1216 words

This was chiefly because the Hebrews placed a higher value on women than did their neighbors. There are, however, some references to the termination of pregnancy. Exod. 21:22-25 says that if a pregnant woman has a miscarriage as a result of injuries she receives during a fight between two men, the penalty for the loss of the fetus is a fine; if the woman is killed, the penalty is "life for life."

On the contrary, we must consider a broad range of values whenever we seek to make wise, ethical, and compassionate choices. We respect a woman's moral capacity to make decisions regarding her health and welfare, including reproductive decisions. A woman's choices reflect how she weighs her various life circumstances: her important relationships, her economic, social, and emotional resources and obligations, her health, her religious or philosophical beliefs, and the well-being of others for whom she has responsibility....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics] 436 words

Are you pro or against medical science? - Are you pro or against medical science. There is a fragile line between obsessiveness and curiosity, when it comes to medical science. As we can see in Mary Shelley's " Frankenstein" Victor is completely obsessed with his idea of creating a monster even though at the end he abandons it. This article is clearly a description of what science should not be. On the contrary Emily Martin's "The body at war " is an obvious example of true science " Martin's analysis reveals that the most powerful metaphor associated with the immune system are those of war and battle and she reflects on the ways in which these war scenes are populated by identities that are gendered, raced and classed"(286)....   [tags: Science Medicine Essays] 1501 words

Abortion Essay - The Church Was Pro-Choice - The Church Until Recently Was Pro-Choice      From a sermon delivered on February 15, 1998 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, by the Rev. Elaine Gallagher Gehrmann:   Most of us know that the Roman Catholic church teaches that life begins at conception, and yet most of us don't know that this is a relatively recent change. It wasn't until 1869 that Pope Pius IX decreed that "ensoulment" takes place at conception. Up until then, the Catholic church had taught that "life" begins at 40 days gestation for a male and 80 days for a female, and therefore abortions before those 40 or 80 day periods were not viewed as murder....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Abortion: Pro-Choice is the Logical Argument - ... Therefore, the fetus is not really “living” in a non-literal sense. Furthermore, why do people want to get abortions in the first place. A majority of the time, people who want abortions want them because of some negative circumstance. What if the woman got raped. What if the baby was conceived an “accident”. Although these questions are somewhat of a taboo within our society, the fact is that this is the reality of some situations.

English-Only America - Pro and Con - English-Only America - Pro and Con As everyone agrees, English has been America’s common language since its foundation. In recent years, however, English is in danger of losing its status as a national language. As you would see in metropolises and cities in Border States, use of non-English languages among immigrants has been increasingly common. Some immigrants stick to their native language in everyday life and can’t speak English well even after several years of immigration.

Abortion: Pro-Life is the Logical Argument - ... Because aborting would be ending that life, it is the same as murder. Even after the fact of the fetus’s humanity is settled, abortion supporters claim that if the mother’s life is at risk, it would be self-defense to abort because the baby is taking the mother’s life unfairly. The problem with this argument, though, is that the fetus had no intent to harm the mother. In a situation involving two adults where one is trying to take the life of the other, there is intent behind the aggressor to make the case self-defense, yet in the situation of a fetus and his mother, the fetus is not trying to harm the mother, as a robber wants to steal from someone....   [tags: Argumentative Essay, Persuasive Essay] 1568 words

The Fetal Position: A Pro-Life Argument - ... Accordingly, if a pregnant mother became victim to an assault and her and her child were killed, the suspect would be tried on two counts of murder, not just one. Every state varies relatively on how far these laws stretch, and some do not even have these laws. But, advocates of these laws find that they are essential to punish those who cause the death of a child while inflicting violence and pain among the pregnant woman carrying the child. This can be interpreted that under these laws, the fetus is separate from the mother, so why then, when a mother has an abortion, is she not being punished for killing her child....   [tags: Abortion ]

Casablanca: Pro-allied Elements in the War Film - Audience members, when seeing Casablanca, would associate it as a war film, and I agree with that, but to be more precise, it is a pro Allie war film. The literary elements in the film are the reasons why it can be viewed this way, with the emphasis on the plot and characters. The timing of when the film was released also supports the idea of it being an anti Axis film. Although it was set in 1940, it was made a year after Pearl Harbor and America entering the war, but it was released right before the Allies had a meeting in Casablanca, so the filmmakers seemed to have wanted the audience to empathize with the Allies....   [tags: Film] 483 words

Weary’s character is one that so clearly satirizes the ideal military soldier. Weary fashions himself a hero, imagining himself being “played in the movies by Frank Sinatra and John Wayne”, while the actual situation he faces is far from the glamorized situations that are ever portrayed in war films (14). Weary’s body, swaddled with “every piece of equipment he had ever been issued, every present he’d received from home”, only further shields him from the signs that the Germans are closing in on him (39)....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Slaughterhouse-Five] 2514 words
