Rape Or Incest Pro Lifers
1,082 wordsMany people believe that abortion is a moral issue, but it is also a constitutional issue. It is a woman's right to choose what she does with her body, and it should not be altered or influenced by anyone else. Abortion has joined the race and war as one of the most controversial issues in the world today. There are many points of view toward abortion, but two fine distinctions are "pro-choice" and "pro-life." Because I feel the decision to abort a pregnancy is that of the mother and the state o...

Death Penalty Information Center Support For The Death Penalty
2,055 words... kes killing fetal life less problematic probably makes the state killing of murderers less problematic as well. And vice versa. While we can argue about causality, it seems naive to assume that widespread changes in how people feel about abortion would not eventually affect other judgments about life and death. Surveys show, for example, that supporters of elective legal abortion are especially likely to support In an earlier essay in America (9 / 26 / 87) I reported that in 1982 Americans o...

Unborn Babies Federally Funded
1,459 words... centres is about the same, around $ 250. 00. This may be a high cost to pay for poor women or for those who are not able to afford an abortion. Many poor women are having children, many of them illegitimate, simply because they are unable to afford an abortion. This social issue leads the abortion debate down another heated debate: should the government fund abortions for the poor? Charles Murray, an advocate for government funded abortions, wrote "Illegitimacy is the single most important s...

Pro Lifers Pro Choicer
1,272 wordsFrom 1973 to 1987, over 22 million abortions have been performed. Pro-lifers would call that a terrible waste of human life. True, 22 million lives were taken, but I believe that we are better off without those. Webster's dictionary defines abortion as "the expulsion of a nonviable fetus. " Abortion might possibly be the most controversial topic right now. I'm sure by now that you " ve heard of all the different types of abortion.

Separation Of Church And State Pro Lifers
732 wordsToday in America those supporting and opposing abortion engage in very heated debates. I am for abortion for many reasons that I strongly believe in. Without legal abortion many women in this country would be killing or mutilating themselves. We would also have unwanted children, which leads to huge problems for families and society. Also I believe that the outlawing of abortion violates the separation of church and state. The choice to have an abortion or not, should be left up to the woman bea...

Genetic Engineering Pro Lifers
1,783 wordsDuring the last twenty-five years, abortion has been one of the most heated topics being debated in the United States and Canada. The only topics that equal the abortion debate are race and war. Abortion is a discussion of human interaction where ethics, emotions, and law come together. There are people that have different views of abortion but no matter what their view is they fall under a thin line. There is the pro-choice and the pro-life. These are the only two categories that peoples views ...

Rape Or Incest Reduce The Number
1,815 wordsAbortion is the termination of a pregnancy. Abortion has been an intensely debated issue in the United States today. It is very difficult to find someone who doesn't have an opinion about abortion, and probably a strong opinion at that. Our country remains divided over what many consider the most conflict-ridden American issue since slavery. There are usually two sides. The pro-life side and the pro-choice side. Both sides make a good case. An agreement exists among pro-lifers and pro-choicer's ...

Mothers Womb Pro Lifers
1,950 wordsIn an essay entitled A Defense of Abortion author Judith Jarvis Thomson offers a number of considerations that would justify abortion in almost all cases without denying the personhood of an unborn child. Thomson's argument is not based on the distinguishing comparison between human beings classified as members of a species, namely homo sapiens, who possess the human genetic code and the actual human person who possesses cognitive consciousness or the ability to know what is going on around him ...

Living In Poverty Pro Lifers
1,299 wordsIn life, everybody makes choices, choices whose effects can be temporary or choices that may make waves in ones life permanently. In my opinion, abortion should be a choice that one is able to make. It may make permanent or temporary changes, but if one is ultimately ready to deal with these changes and can make the adult decision to abort, it the right given to us as American women. Many people believe that this issue of abortion rights is moral, but it is also a Constitutional issue. By the gr...

Make A Choice Pro Lifers
810 wordsIf You Choose Freedom, There Is Only One Choice It is not surprising that abortion is an issue debated heatedly, as it calls us to question our moral beliefs on a very personal issue. With both pro-life and pro-choice factions zealously protecting their stance, it would be easy to opt out of the decision. Perhaps particularly for groups for whom it may not be an immediate personal issue (such as males or females past child-bearing age), it may seem an argument not worth investing in. However, wh...

Pain And Suffering Legalizing Euthanasia
1,387 wordsIt is apparent that euthanasia should be permitted everywhere for the following reasons: individual liberty; one s undesired pain, suffering, and misery; and the individual s frustration from having a valueless life. First of all, one should be able to understand the term euthanasia. In ancient Greece, eu thanatos meant easy death. Today s euthanasia generally refers to mercy killing, the voluntary ending of the life of someone who is terminally or hopelessly ill (Euthanasia 1). Knowing that, it...
