The other 98% was for risk of 'psychological damage' to the mother. The main arguments for abortion, or pro-choice arguments are that a foetus is not truly alive- whereas there can be no argument that the mother is- therefore is not the mother's life worth more and more important? This is one of the main debates that surround the controversy of abortion- when does life really begin? At conception, during pregnancy or at birth? 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.
Whether it is mentally or physically. Although I believe abortion is a terrible thing and should be illegal, many people believe that if you think about it, scientifically abortion isn’t wrong. Scientists say that “The unborn is an embryo or a fetus that is just a simple blob of tissue” (Alcorn). Science takes a major part in abortion. The fetus inside the woman's body may be alive, but we can’t tell whether or not it will become a potential human (Alcorn).
However, such states had established abortion laws which have put women's health and freedom in danger. (alternet.org) Opponents of the matter, who identify themselves as pro-life, assert that personhood begins at conception, and abortion is therefore the immoral killing of and innocent human being. The staggering numbers and cruel methods are addressed (al... ... middle of paper ... ...e. Thus, abortion is of importance, as it concerns and regards the right of the mother to do what is most suitable for her. Works Cited Marcotte, Amanda.

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.
There is a huge debate going on around the world on whether the parents of an unborn child should have the right to have an abortion, or the unborn child should have the right to live. This issue is very universal and gets an individual to think, “Whose rights are being protected, the mother's or the fetus?” With abortion being legal, the mother's rights are being protected, but what happens to the unborn child's rights? A small, innocent, and fragile child may die all because his/her parents made the bad choice of having sex before they were ready to have a child. The unborn baby did not choose to be put into this life, and the unborn baby definitely should not be put to death because the parents don't want to take responsibility. Statistics show that 92% of abortions in America are purely elective-- done on healthy women to end the lives of healthy children.
Abortion is one of the most controversial and highly debatable issues in the United States today. This hot topic has put both the supporting and opposing sides in an uproar to defend their positions. In abortion, a fetus is deliberately terminated from the woman’s womb. Though there are several different methods of abortion, they all aim to rid of the potential child. When carefully reading descriptions of the techniques to abort a fetus, one does not shrug it off their shoulders and write it off as morally acceptable.
Marisa Guzman 12/3/14 HDCS Abortions There will always be a debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option. It continues to divide Americans very long after the US Supreme Court’s decision on Roe v. Wade. People, identifying themselves as pro-choice, say that choosing abortion is a right that should not be limited by the government or religious authority, and it outweighs any right claimed for a fetus or an embryo. It is said that pregnant women will resort to unsafe, illegal abortions if they do not get the option to do it the safer way, legally. Their opponents, identifying themselves as pro-life, say that a life begins at conception, and so abortion is the immoral killing of an innocent, helpless human being.
In that particular case, it does not include the right to be given anything, but only the right not to be killed by anybody. Then Thomson goes o... ... middle of paper ... ...he mother has the overpowering right to decide what she prefers to do to her body. Especially in cases of rape, I support the woman’s right to choose if she prefers to have an abortion. I do not agree with how the article makes one feel guilty for thinking rape is a valid reason to abort a fetus. It goes about saying that the fetus is just an innocent result, I disagree.
That fetus has a right to a good life, love, and happiness. Abortion cannot continue to be a solution to carelessness. Most women who have abortions choose to have sex and they should deal with the consequences without taking the life of an innocent baby. Bibliography: Works Cited Online. 20 Septmeber 2000.
On the other had other people such as myself feel that abortion is a personal right and that it should continue to be legal. These types of people are called pro-choice because they believe that everyone has rights to choices no matter what society and the government thinks. There are multiple reasons why many women have abortions. Whatever the reason any woman feels she should have an abortion should be her legal right to make that decision. I personally wouldn’t agree with a former abortion method called infanticide because in that method the baby was killed directly
