Making a Case Against Legal Abortion

- One of the most famous documents pertaining to medical ethics is the Hippocratic Oath. A particular passage notes that one “will not give a woman a destructive pessary”. A pessary was historically used for giving abortions. To some, this is definitive evidence that abortions are morally wrong and should not be carried out. To others, they believe the reference to pessaries was specific and not necessarily related to abortion.
