Abortion: Pro-Choice is the Wrong Choice

- Ronald Regan (1983) said “Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born” (pg. N/A). He was saying that a person who had a chance to live is ending the life of another person, who wasn’t allowed an opportunity to say whether or not he/she wanted to live. So abortion should not be considered as the only way to get out of a pregnancy because the woman could get breast cancer after the abortion process is over, the person may experience psychological damage due to aborting the child, and the woman is ending a human life. The first reason abortions should not be allowed is because the woman could get breast cancer after having the abortion....   [tags: The Right to Life, Pro-Life Essays]

Abortion: Pro-Life and Pro-Choice

An Analysis of Pro-Choice and Pro-Life Arguements

- Abortion is a controversial issue that is not easily handled in the world today. While some people, usually conservatives (also known as Pro-Life advocates), view abortion as wrong, others tend to feel that abortion should be up to the woman in that situation; these people are usually liberalists (also known as Pro-Choice advocates). While Pro-Life and Pro-Choice are two different views on the same point, several issues separate these two sides: the goals of each agenda, the side effects of accomplishing these goals, and the moral standards supporting each side....   [tags: abortion, moral, goal]

All Choices Are Legal with Pro-choice

- Pro-choice is the group that ensures all choice be legal (Head 1). Pro-choice is the group that argues issues such as contraception use, abortion, and child birth (Head 1). Pro-life argues the same issues, but just the opposite. With evolving moral standards of society, abortions are becoming more justified by health issues, complications, and financial burdens. Approximately 24% of pregnancies are aborted (Lowen 1).

Abortion: Pro-Choice is the Logical Argument

- The controversy surrounding the ethicality of abortions has been a hotly debated topic during the past several decades. In the Supreme Court case of Roe v. Wade, the Court ruled that women had the constitutional right to seek abortions; however, in 1989, the Court later decided that each state had the right to set its own abortion policy. Heated disagreements and different perspectives have led to the creation of two different movements: the prochoice movement and the prolife movement. The former supports abortion, the intentional ending of a pregnancy, while the latter claims that abortion is immoral....   [tags: Argumentative Essay, Persuasive Essay]

Abortion: I Am Pro-Choice

- Since the early 1970’s abortion has been an important issue to the United States (Tietze 1). The problem begins with whether it is the woman’s choice to keep or terminate her pregnancy or the government’s choice. When this problem happens, a woman loses her right as a person. Most women argue about this issue, but if you look at it, it is the woman’s body, and she should do with it as she pleases.

This was chiefly because the Hebrews placed a higher value on women than did their neighbors. There are, however, some references to the termination of pregnancy. Exod. 21:22-25 says that if a pregnant woman has a miscarriage as a result of injuries she receives during a fight between two men, the penalty for the loss of the fetus is a fine; if the woman is killed, the penalty is "life for life."...   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

It wasn't until 1869 that Pope Pius IX decreed that "ensoulment" takes place at conception.
