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.
Thomson’s essay was created as a strong, convincing essay. Thomson uses pathos when explaining the example for the mother and child situation. Thomson states “Some won’t even make an exception for a case in which continuation of the pregnancy is likely to shorten the mother’s life; they regard abortion as impermissible even to save the mother’s life.” (Thomson, 50) that even when the mother’s life is endangered, they still regard abortion as impermissible. However the case stated before is extremely rare and many people who are against abortion doesn’t believe in the extreme view. She states that “The extreme view could of course be weakened to say that while abortion is permissible to save the mother’s life, it may not be performed by a third party but only by the mother’s life.” (Thomson) the mother and child share the same body so it should be left in her hands to control the situation.
There are no medical conditions that threaten a woman's life in which abortion is a recognized treatment. Permitting abortion for fetal deformities translates to the theory that some lives are not worth living, and no one has the right to say which individual is not worthy of life. What some people see as "restrictions on women," others see as "protections for preborn children."

Abortion is a very sensitive topic and has been since it became legal back in 1973 with the landmark case of Roe v. Wade.
So since birth is so unpredictable, that cannot be seen as the start of life. I do think that by allowing abortion, society is taking the easy way out and we should try for better care for pregnant mothers who would otherwise abort. In conclusion, I believe that abortion is wrong, and that it is definitely a curse to society- through the trauma it causes, and the money and the time it wastes on debates and arguments. I think we should treat out bodies as God would want and our children, born and unborn, likewise.

Abortion clinics do not make the choice easier, nor do they force the woman into the surgery. People who are against abortion have the choice not to have one. It is not fair to take away the choice of people who do want one. The reason I believe so strongly about the abortion issue is because sometimes circumstances beyond a woman’s control present themselves.
The case of Roe vs. Wade has assisted development of boundaries to conclude legal rights of the mother and the fetus. Although the pro-life and pro-choice group of persons are found, but there is nothing known as pro-abortion. While no one particularly wishes to end wonders of life, abortion guarantees protection and legal rights of women. Although abortion is opposed by many people, it should remain legal, as it is the woman's right to control her own body.
Unfortunately, sometimes a mother can run the risk of death if they go through with the pregnancy. Would it be fair to let the mother of two young children die because SOME PEOPLE don't believe in abortion? On the other hand, it may be true that young women are taking advantage of the fact that they can easily have an abortion. Some say they are substituting birth control with abortion. Nevertheless, no one ever said we can't place restrictions on abortion but we can't let one bad apple spoil the whole bunch.
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. The case of Roe versus Wade legalized abortion in the first trimester along with the third trimester but only if the mothers health is in jeopardy. Due to the conflict of opinions from both sides, it is virtually impossible to solve the issue of abortion. On one hand, advocates believe that all humans should have the right to live regardless of the mother’s choice. On the other hand, the mothers’ rights are put into consideration because her body will forever be changed.

I feel that Thomson?s argument was easily refuted although it was very imaginative and clever. It doesn?t seem that her idea of abortion only being wrong in the case of voluntary pregnancy will hold water too long. In my personal opinion I feel that abortion is generally wrong. 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.
Abortion is permissible in many cases, but this does not mean that we have the right to secure the death of the fetus. I agree with Thomson’s view that the death of a fetus is a necessary side-effect of abortion, but is not the goal. Were it possible to remove a fetus without killing it, then it must not be killed. The potential harm or life depreciation of the mother outweighs the fetuses’ potential right to life, whether it may have a future or not. Killing in self-defense is permissible and the possible death or harm that comes from having a baby is enough right for a mother to have an abortion.
