It’s the best way if you don’t want to abort the child. Somewhere else in the world, there is someone willing to care for your child. In conclusion, putting your child up for adoption is better than aborting the child itself. The last reason why I believe abortion should be illegal is because it can take a major toll on the mind and body. Abortion can emotionally affect each women in its own way.
On the other hand, those who are for abortion say that a fetus is only a "potential human being." The advocates for legal abortions want the mother to choose whether she keeps the baby or kills it, and the rights of a mother supersede the rights of a baby. John M.

In no other cases has the Supreme Court seen disagreements on religion, ethics, and biology and how it should be defined in the court of law.
It is also said that the babies sometimes come out screaming and have looks of pain on their faces (“Reasons abortion should”).

(Taking Sides: Clashing Views on Controversial Moral Issues) Those who support pro-life view abortion as murder since life begins at the moment of conception, and punishment for these actions should be required. Though, fertilized eggs that are used for vitro fertilization that are not implanted are routinely thrown away. (about.com) Therefore, if human life occurs at conception, then isn’t this murder, and if not, then how is abortion murder? Pro-life activists make the argument of other options such as adoption and other forms of contraception as an alternative to abortion. Although, nearly all women who forego the procedure of an abortion were already on a form of contraception drug, so the baby is clearly unwanted.
Advocates of Pro Life are consistently perusing abortion, stating that it is morally wrong, and unethical in all matters, even if the pregnancy is inadvertent. There are factors remaining in today’s society that are very forthcoming and are unanticipated by women in the prevention of pregnancy. If medical doctors abolished the procedure, or if the government made it even more difficult to obtain an abortion, we wouldn’t be supporting the righteousness of many women in the U.S. today. If contraception, in all forms, were 100% effective, then abortion could be abolished. Until medical research and testing finds a foolproof contraceptive, abortion is morally permissible because of obvious factors that are uncontrollable.
On the other hand, some feel that fetuses have no advocates and deserve a right to live, so it is immoral to abandon their rights and kill them. This issue is not only at the center of political debate, but philosophical debate as well. In this paper, I will examine and critique Mary Anne Warren's On the Moral and Legal Status of Abortion, where she examines the moral humanity of the fetus and its right to life. Mary Anne Warren describes how abortion should be kept legal without any restrictions on it. She states that the pro-abortion argument should center around the moral status of the baby, not simply on the rights of the mother.
While some people argue that abortion is a right and should remain legal, I believe that there are too many flaws with their claims to protect abortion for it to be preserved. Pro-life groups, or those who promote the legal protection of unborn children, support their views by laying a foundation that explicitly highlights the deliberate killing of a life. Abortion desensitizes society to a quiet form of violence, often calling the pro-choice movement a silent holocaust. These fetuses cannot speak for themselves, cannot shout for help when being surgically removed from the world as they know it. Women who have abortions tend to develop issues ranging from those that deal with emotional, psychological, physical, and mental damage.
Indeed, pro-abortionists argue that at the time an abortion procedure takes place, the fetus cannot exist separately of her mother and for that reason it cannot be considered as a separate organism. Furthermore, they claim that in the case of rape or incest, forcing a woman carry a pregnancy to full term after this violent act would cause further psychological harm to the victim and the unborn child. They also argue that abortion is a safe medical procedure with less than 0.5% risk of serious complications; however, anti-abortionists hold very different views. They claim that life starts at the moment of conception and for that reason, since abortion is the act of taking human life, it is murder. They argue that abortion is a grave offend against God and his creation.
Most abortions occur because contraception fails, because of a rape or because of a serious medical condition of the mother, which could lead to her death. In these situations abortion is often the only way that prevents the birth of an unwanted child or saves a mothers life. In the world today pregnancy often has catast... ... middle of paper ... ...eering there are many pros and cons for each. What it mainly comes down to is how each individual perceives each situation of abortion and genetic engineering. If one person sees abortion as a women’s choice and can back up his views with proof that it would be better for the mother, then do not try to destroy their views.
Looking at Abortion Abortion is 'the intentional destruction of a foetus or the inducing of a premature expulsion from the womb to cause its death'. This definition sounds rather barbaric and it leads us to ask who could support such an idea. In looking at the case for abortion, there are a number of groups in support of this such as the National Abortion Campaign who want us to realise that usually the woman who is having the baby is best qualified to judge what is the right decision. There is a large difference of opinion over when life begins and it is argued that a minority of people have no right to impose their views on the rest of us. A foetus is only a potential human life in that it is not fully developed and there can be no argument about the humanity of the woman carrying the child.
