- Suppose your mother was not planning on having a child when she was pregnant with you. Suppose your father was abusive to her. Suppose she was not even ready to be a mother or prepared to have a baby. Aren’t you still glad that she didn’t put her right to choose what goes on within her body before your right to life. Ronald Reagan once said, “I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born” (qtd. “Quotations about Abortion”). Because a fetus is a human being from the moment of conception, aborting is murder and therefore it should be just as illegal as taking the life of a grown human is....   [tags: Argumentative Essay, Persuasive Essay]

The Fetal Position: A Pro-Life Argument

- Each year there are roughly 6 million pregnancies in the U.S., with 20% resulting in the termination of the fetus, or abortion in other terms. Mathematically, that is estimated to be 1.2 million babies that have no hope for a future outside the womb (American Pregnancy). Everyone has a right to life; this right is exercised in many parts of the American life, namely the Declaration of Independence (The Abortion Controversy 113-116). Therefore, the United States’ federal government should go to greater lengths to prohibit these so called ‘abortions’ in every case, regardless of the situation....   [tags: Abortion ]

Pro-Life Editorial Response

- Dear Mr. Shawn Nauman, This letter is in response to your March 1, 1995 editorial regarding abortion. It must have been very tough at times, growing up with parents who were so young and unprepared for a child. I must commend your parents for doing such a wonderful job of raising a son who grew up to be so vocal with his opinions and thoughts. I realize with your mother being a teenager at the time of your conception, and with the timing of her pregnancy, with regards to the infamous Roe v. Wade decision, that the issue of abortion is perhaps an issue that is very personal one....   [tags: essays research papers]

A Human Life Is Worth Too Much: Making a Case Against Abortion

- Abortion has been a highly controversial topic in recent history. The debate about abortion has been a controversial topic as far back as the history books go. For example, in the book of Leviticus, the Bible describes a woman who is pregnant and two fighting men injure her, causing harm to the baby (Herring, 4). In this case it was not necessarily an abortion in today’s terms, but the same principle is there. The men were to be punished if the child that the woman was carrying was harmed in any way....   [tags: pro-life, terminating pregnancy]

Common Social Problems in the United States: Abortion

- Abortion is one of the common social problems in the United States at this point in time. Many people think it is a debate between pro-choice and pro-life, but there is more to it than that. This issue is based upon a woman’s right to have an abortion, or the fetuses right to life. It is argued constantly whether a fetus may or may not be a human being. According to scientific findings, life begins at conception, yet that does not automatically make the fetus a human being. The common law definition of a human being is relevant, a fetus not yet born nor in the process of birth is not considered a human being....   [tags: pro-choice and pro-life]

In the United States alone, abortion “peaked in 1990 (1.6 million), and public support for abortion peaked soon thereafter”. This statistic was averaged to 1.3 million every year. Historically, two opposing groups have emerged in debates over abortion-the “Pro-life” and the “Pro-choice.” The main question is in the determination of whether a fetus is “human” or “nonhuman.” The pro-life camp believes that the fetus is a human from the moment of conception, and any attempt to remove an early pregnancy is simply an act of “murder”, and a denial of life to the helpless unborn....   [tags: Abortion, Pro Life Essays]
