She claims that, opponents against abortion have been concerned to justify the independence of a fetus, to ensure that it has a right to life, just as a mother would. Making the fetus a human being (pg#). To fight off the argument she writes that what if mother’s body resulted pregnant from involuntary acts. Leading to the question being is the abortion permissible in the situation of an involuntary act? Many will claim that the mother was in a situation that entails high risks and Thompson later points out what if it was a voluntary act, is abortion permissible now?

It is only fair to say that women should be given the same choice. If one does not want to hold the responsibilities of a child then she should be able to have the choice of abortion in her options. Because contraceptives fail, and because they are ... ... middle of paper ... ...e if they were not conceived.In summary, a woman's right to choose can justify abortion, but it should be banned because it is immoral and life begins at conception. Women have been given the right to have an abortion under the United States Constitution, but the people that fight for the unborn child's rights are still protesting this right. Pro-life activists claim that it is immoral because it is simply defined as murder.
I think that if the woman became pregnant through consensual sex, even if she did not want to have a child, abortion is wrong regardless of the contraceptive precautions that were exercised. In the terribly unfortunate case of rape I feel it is more than understandable for the woman to want to abort the fetus. Seeing how the fetus had no control over the situation it seems that they should be given the chance at life. Although it is very unfortunate for the woman to have to be in such a situation I think it would be in the best interest for everyone to have the child. Maybe someday the unwanted child could make a contribution to all of mankind.
It’s hard to answer those questions, if woman knowing that doing sex might be pregnant, and get pregnant, its woman’s responsibility, so that abortion is not permissible. According to this point of view, abortion is only allowed in case of woman got raped and pregnant or not voluntarily been using body, the concerted woman have not responsible for abortion. I believe that abortion is permissible from human moral side to lead to reduce the overall sadness for most of the people if in the cases above.
B. Women should have abortions when they want to terminate an unwanted pregnancy and the fetus has serious physical defects. A rule utilitarian would try to answer the same question, which rule will produce more total well-being? In conclusion, a choice needs to be available to prevent the birth of unwanted children, to avoid damage to the child as well as the well-being of women. Preservation of life seems to be a slogan for anti-abortionists.
Recent legal movements and rules are being placed within the practice of maternal mothers with focus on the protection of the fetus as a separate entity from the woman. These legalities are said to question the rights of the pregnant woman about her own medical care and decisions. The new protective actions for the fetus will enforce criminal charges on women who behave in a way that is associated with fetal harm or adverse perinatal outcomes. The ethical dilemmas with maternal decision making are being approached because it “constrains the pregnant woman’s decision making by punishing them which erode a woman’s basic rights to privacy and body integrity.” (ACOG, 2011) The technological advances of current imaging, testing, and treating of fetuses help to create the view of a fetus being considered as an independent patient. They can be treated apart from the woman with whom their existence depends on.
A difficult problem today is trying to that prove rape occurred and that it was not consensual. There should be some type of system to regulate that issue. Everyone that wanted an abortion could say they have been raped and get one, there needs to be a system to prevent that. Also, if a woman carrying a child is getting very sick or unhealthy because of the pregnancy the option of abortion should be available to her. It would be better to save one life than possibly lose both.
Every mother might enjoy the times that she carries her baby with love. Abortion breaks the natural law to deprive life from a fetus; therefore, it could be seen as murder. It would cause permanent physical and psychological damage to the mother. In normal situation, abortion is been seen as a way to avoid responsibility. The mother want to abort the fetus if it is unwanted.
The reason I believe so strongly about the abortion issue is because sometimes circumstances beyond a woman’s control present themselves. Women who are raped, who carry a disease, who are too young to be mothers, and who are drug addicts should all be able to obtain an abortion. Not only is the choice a good one for the potential mother but it is also a good choice for the unborn child. Before sixteen weeks the unborn child is not even considered a fetus. That is why I believe that abortions before sixteen weeks are justifiable.
