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 or Pro-Life? - Abortion is a highly controversial topic of debate; this debate evokes strong emotions on both sides. Abortion is a pretty cut and dry topic; you are either Pro-Life or Pro-Choice. Pro-life advocates are people who believe abortion is ethically and morally wrong, and that it is the government’s job to protect all people including the lives of unborn children. Pro-choice supporters say that it is not the government’s responsibility to protect the unborn children, and women should have the right to determine whether or not they continue with their pregnancies; by choosing to have an abortion....   [tags: Abortion]

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

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.

Perhaps school becomes an easier option, maybe their parents never find out that their daughter was pregnant, or possibly an affair will remain undiscovered.

To puncture the skull, surgical scissors or a Trochar is forcefully driven into the skull. After the skull has been penetrated, a vacuüm is inserted and the brains are extracted.

Reasons to Legalize Abortion - ... Rape and incest are unquestionably horrible crimes, but a woman is hardly free until she is sure that the attack has not resulted in pregnancy. Especially in such cases the woman must have the right to control her own body. Abortion must be one of her options.

Bioethicist Andrew Varga summarizes the debate on abortion in cases of rape and incest: It is argued that in these tragic cases the great value of the mental health of a woman who becomes pregnant as a result of rape or incest can best be safe-guarded by abortion....   [tags: pro-choice, pro-life, pregnancy, religion]

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
