The pro-choice individuals refute that before 20 weeks, fetus lack the attribute of pain and self-awareness as doctor suggested. Also, a woman has right to her body and she should be able to choose whether she want to abort or not. The topic of Abortion is very debatable issue whether it should be legal or illegal. This essay is arguing against anti-abortion and supporting with “Abortion should be legal”. Abortion is a big issue for women and it should be made legal in all countries because legalized abortion prevents illegal unsafe abortions, child abusive crime and health problems like depression, trauma and shock.
and pro-choice (the fetus is not human being also woman should have right to decide) In this paper I will focus on mother-fetus relationships and Marquis’ argument for abortion is seriously wrong, afterward state I will explain why I think he made a successful argument and present my reasons for pro-life. Also, I will follow up with one of objection about human right for fetus and then respond my thinking to the objection. Abortion is referring to the procedure of artificial terminated the pregnancy. Generally speaking, the main reason for abortion is to prevent the fetus’ birth from considering mother’s health or self-decision. I agreed with Don Marquis’ argument.
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.
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.
A brutal murder of a being who has not even seen the world and a huge injustice to a helpless fetus who might have been the next Einstein, President, or the person who would find a cure to cancer. Morality says that every person has the right not to be unjustly killed. Hence, this right also apply to any unborn child. The thought of an individual killing his/her own unborn child is always lurking in the back of my mind because it’s hard to assert the harm being caused by the unborn child to the mother or to the society in general. If we say abortion is morally right, then we are against procreation and procreation is one of the major contributions of a human being to his or her society and the world at large.
They also say that in many extreme cases, it is in the best interest of the mother and the child that the fetus be aborted. Abortion helps keep the crime rate low, so it should remain legal, they also say. I believe that abortion should be banned. I strongly feel that pregnant women who want to abort their child/fetus should not be allowed to. For one, should one person alone be allowed to control the fate of another?
I will be using and summarizing those articles in my evaluation of the topic abortion. In Judith Jarvis Thomson’s article, A Defense of Abortion, she argues that a mother has the rights to “unplug” herself from a fetus even if we assume it is a person. She also believes this to be permissible in cases other than rape. The extreme anti-abortion view that Thomson discusses is the view that abortion is impermissible even in certain cases pertaining to saving the mothers life. The argument present in this case is that performing the abortion is directly killing the child, whereas not doing anything at all is just the same as letting the mother die.
They need to understand that the abortion will be with them for the rest of their life, and aborting the child will not take away the pain and responsibility that comes from making the choice to have sex. I hope that women who have had abortions learn from what they have done, and try to influence the right choice towards other mothers going threw the same situation. Abortions aren’t as simple as people hope for, so before considering one, think about how you would like your future to be.
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.
While Thompson 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. I agree that everyone has the right to life and it is immoral and so unethical to deprive that right from anyone. However, abortion is justified in some cases, which is the best possible option available for the mother. I strongly believe that ethics and religion plays a vital role in making such a decision because abortion is forbidding in some religions such as Islam, abortion is not acceptable after eight weeks of pregnancy. Another possible reason why abortion can’t be performed is because of the law of some countries such as Egypt that reject abortion and consider it as a crime that a mother might face some time in prison.
