Until medical research and testing finds a foolproof contraceptive, abortion is morally permissible because of obvious factors that are uncontrollable. For those whom agree that abortion is an ethical procedure, there are some instances where it is morally questionable.

If there were, then abortion could be abolished, and unwanted pregnancies wouldn’t occur. In conclusion, abortion is the intentional termination of pregnancy resulting in the death of the fetus.
If one does not want a child, they should prevent conception from happening, not kill an innocent baby. Abortions should be eliminated and the whole class of human beings (pre-born babies) should be given the most fundamental right—the right to Life. 2 Abortions do not assure equal justice for all, which in this case, are the innocent unborn children.
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.
The main argument of the pro-choice view for legalized abortions has to do with a woman's right to privacy and her right to control her body. The pro-choice viewers do not approve of governmental interference in personal matters like abortion. Certainly this right of p... ... middle of paper ... ... in society. The worldly materialization and sophistication has made the abortionists so insensitive towards morality that life has lost its true worth. The main point is not the price that an eye, a brain or heart is sold for, but that a helpless child had to be killed in order to obtain these parts.
I believe my viewpoint is the best viewpoint is the best viewpoint because it combines both pro-life and pro-choice viewpoints unlike your viewpoint of pro-life. You believe that women should not be able to have abortions because a life is at state. You believe that a life is at state but you do not think about the consequences of having a child that is not wanted. You say that women should not have the right to have an abortion and that you do not believe in abortion but by saying that you are taking away a woman's freedom of choice. A woman should have the right to choose if she wants to have an abortion.
The right to life The article A Defense of Abortion written by Judith Thomson and the article Why Abortion is Immoral by Don Marquis deal with the arguments of whether abortion is moral, immoral, justified or not. The author Don Marquis wants to prove that abortion is immoral without taking into consideration extreme cases, while Thomson says that abortion is justified in some cases. The latter supports her arguments by saying that abortion is justified in cases such as rape and when the mother’s life, which is the most important here, is in danger. On the other hand, Marquis says that abortion can’t be justified, because abortion is killing a person who might have a future, without much reference to any other cases that might lead to abortion.
Among the many disagreements, some of the most common dealt with issues such as the right to live which makes abortion morally same as murder, along with a women having reproductive rights and the different circumstances that justify having an abortion such as abortion due to rape. In this paper we will briefly explore the pros and cons of these issues. One of the biggest issue of abortion goes back to the controversial question of when human life actually begins. Many people will often argue that a fetus is a living being from the moment of conception and feel that it deserves the same legal protections as an adult, therefore making it immoral to kill it. Just like in our court system, we would not put an innocent person on death penalty.
Because of this, each side can always say that the foetus is or isn't alive and that you are or aren't killing a baby through abortion. Pro-choice campaigners also say that doctors have no better right than the mothers to deem whether and abortion is necessary. Additionally, they say that if abortions were made illegal, thousands of women would risk their lives in dirty back... ... middle of paper ... ... they are physically or mentally handicapped- they can come to terms with it- why can't we? I have noticed that all the arguments against abortion are impersonal and are based on the idea that life doesn't start until birth, but with medical advances a baby born as early as 24 weeks can survive in the world. So since birth is so unpredictable, that cannot be seen as the start of life.
Judith Thomson’s “A Defense of Abortion” is an essay where Thomson argues that abortion is not impermissible. To be even more precise, she argues for abortion should also be sometimes permissible, but she also grants that there are certain situations in which getting an abortion would be immoral. “Most opposition to abortion relies on the premise that the fetus is a human being, a person, from the moment of conception.” (Thomson, 48). She uses the rhetorical triangle to help her achieve her argument about abortion. Which uses ethos, pathos, and logos to influence her providing the argument surrounding abortion.
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.
