As president of Campaign Life Coalition which is the national pro-life organization that is working at all levels of government to secure full legal protection for all human beings from the point of conception, I must defend the sanctity of human life against the numerous threats posed by abortion. Campaign Life Coalition never compromises on basic principles, and encourages incremental policies that would increase respect and protection for human life. For this reason it is necessary that I take action in attempting to bring back Bill C-43 in an attempt to illegalize abortion. Under Bill C-43, a person inducing an abortion would be guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years, unless it was …show more content…
They also argue that the decision to continue a pregnancy should not be imposed on the woman. People who are “Pro-Choice” which signifies that they support the idea of abortion; do not believe that a fetus can be considered alive until it is fully capable to sustain its own life. A man can leave a relationship the moment he finds out about a pregnancy and Pro-Choice believes that it is only just that the woman has the same choice and if she does not wish to take responsibility of a child, she should have the choice of abortion.
Abortion should be illegal because a choice such as this is immoral. I believe abortion to be considered immoral because life begins at conception, and choosing to abort a child is the same as murder. Most abortions are performed within the first six months of pregnancy . Mothers should be aware that at just 18 days "the fetal heart is already pumping blood through a closed circulatory system. At 40 days the fetal brain begins to function . During the eighth week all his body systems are present and by the eleventh all systems are fully functional." ( Studyworld.com ) Any person who believes that the fetus is simply a mass of flesh, is extremely wrong. In fact , the body of an unborn baby is even more complex than ours due to additional parts they have such as the placenta and amniotic sac . All working systems in the body of the fetus are formed in the cell of origin, not the mother .
One of the most controversial topics over the years, and still today, is abortion. Is abortion murder or not? When does a fetus become a human? There are no answers to these questions. Everyone individual has their own beliefs on whether or not abortion is justifiable. Abortions have been performed throughout many of centuries. Recently, there has been a number of court cases that has changed the legality of abortions, especially in the United States, for example Roe v. Wade. Even religions have changed their views on abortions over the course of the years. In the abortions wars there are two parties, pro-life and pro-choice. Pro-life believes that abortion is murder and is completely immoral. Pro-choice,
Abortions should be illegal in the United States. Abortions have been occurring since the 1800`s. They were banned in the 1880’s except to save the life of the women. However, the Supreme Court ruled in 1973, in the case Roe vs Wade that abortion is legal in the first trimester. I disagree with this ruling because it is morally wrong. Secondly,every human being must be responsible for their actions. Lastly, there are many options available to prevent becoming a parent. We have to right to decide when we want to become a parent, but not if it involves terminating another human life.
The issue of abortion is very complex since it raises many issues. People not only have to consider the legal aspect of abortion, but also its medical, ethical, social, biological, and religious aspects, which are still widely debated. First of all, when considering abortion, it is imperative to make sure the mother is safe, which is why people advocate medical procedures over surgical procedures due to the former having less health risks. The drug mifepristone is highly effective and is commonly used to block the production of the hormone that is responsible for proper fetal development and is usually used up to sixty-three days after the beginning of the last menstrual period. In regards to ethical issues, there are the two extremes, the pro-life supporters and the pro-choice supporters, and the individuals with various moderate views justifying abortion depending on the status of the fetus, the rights of both the woman and the fetus,
The foundation of the American Government is built on two ideologies; first, that the majority of the people govern through democratic election and second, that the power of the majority is limited to ensure individual rights. As defined by the American Heritage Online Dictionary a mother is a woman who conceives, gives birth to, or raises and nurtures a child. This paper will discuss the right of privacy of the mother versus the governments’ right to protect the unborn fetus in regard to Abortion.
The National Right to Life Committee, founded in 1968, is this country’s oldest and largest pro-life organization. Their mission is to use education and legislation to protect the most vulnerable of society, the born and unborn children, disabled peoples and elders, from abortions, euthanasia, infant homicide, and assisted suicide. They assert that these acts rob people of the very right outlined in the Declaration of Independence. According to the Declaration of Independence, we are all “endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life...” (Jefferson) and for this reason, their right to life should not be taken away by giving them the option of abortion, euthanasia, etc. It is as though their belief is that
A whopping fifty seven million babies are aborted each year. Fifty seven million valuable lives. The definition of abortion is the loss of a fetus before it is able to live outside of the womb. I am Pro-Life. All fetuses have the right to life and it should not be taken from them. In contrast, people who are Pro-Choice may beg to differ.
The battle for the legality of abortion is one that is highly debated and argued by pro-life and pro-choice believers. Pro-life are those who stand for the abolition of abortions; pro-choice, on the contrary, stand for its legality. Though many in both groups believe in a more blurred line of when exceptions should be made, in its entirety, they are on opposite ends of the abortion spectrum. With ever-changing moral and ethical standards, pro-choice challenges the pro-life debate with medical, sexist, and illogical arguments.
Having a pro-choice viewpoint is not something that a person chooses overnight. I went through seven years of sexual education before I really understood abortion and could make an educated decision on my choice of sides. I have gone from being totally against the abortion procedure, to fully accepting it. I believe that before you can really say that you do not believe in abortion you have to come up against it in your own life. I know several women who have had abortions, not so they could party or have fun, but so they wouldn't ruin their entire lives because of a mistake. They weren't particularly overjoyed about it - no one is - and all are good, decent people
Abortion is the termination of the fetus within 28 weeks of becoming pregnant. There are two main viewpoints discussed throughout America on this topic which is pro-life or pro-choice. Pro-life is the encouragement of human life, of, the fetus, so anti-abortion. Pro-choice is a United States social political faction supporting the right that women should get to choose between aborting the child or not. Abortion is a controversial issue that countless individuals in the pro-life and pro-choice community have a powerful divergent opinion concerning the matter. Abortion is not morally ethical because it is the murder of an unborn fetus.
I want to do my iSearch on the political side of abortion and the Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life movements. Even though I know where I stand, I want want to learn about both sides because I think it will benefit me in truly understanding the topic. I chose this topic because I feel strongly about the a woman’s right to choose. I think every woman should get to make their own decision when it comes to abortion, and no man should make the decision for them. I think this issue is very important because of everything going on in our country now. I hope to find out where our countries leaders stand on this issue and what the future holds for rights around abortion. I can read articles on the Planned Parenthood website and Prochoiceamerica.org. I can watch videos of politicians talk about the issue as well as women talk about the issue at protests around the world. I can read about the Roe v. Wade case as well as other cases. I can read books that are listed on studentsforlife.org, which is a site that offers credible books on both sides of the abortion issue. I can interview someone who is currently working at Planned Parenthood or I can interview my cousin who had an internship at Planned Parenthood recently.
The topic of abortion is a hot subject among the people of America today. Some say yes, women should be able to have abortions no matter if the fetus is in the first trimester or well in to the second trimester of gestation. On the other hand the other people say that it is murder of a child no matter the stage of development. Many of the people that believe that the fertilized ovum is a human and has a soul at the conception are the pro-life people. They believe this because of their religious beliefs and cannot scientifically prove this in any way.
However, the pro-choice or the activists for abortions, argue that if a family is in a state of financial trouble, then abortion should be a practical option. Otherwise, the child would be born into a life of suffering, and inadequate living conditions. The pro-choice believers, bases their beliefs, upon the fact that having an abortion is the inalienable right of women. They believe that by outlawing abortions, women aren’t allowed to practice their freedom of privacy. In a way, women are being denied their constitutional rights. Many pro-choice activists also state that abortion is justifiable, because at the time of fertilization the ensuing embryo is not yet a human being. It is not a human being, but a potential one. Therefore, its death does not constitute a murder. Pro-choice activists’
Abortion is a serious topic that people have been debating about for years. Everywhere you turn the topic of abortion presents itself, on TV, in the newspapers, in books and magazines. It already has, and will continue to cause, controversy for years to come. As long as abortion remains legal, pro-life advocates will continue to protest what they believe to be these horrible acts of murder.
Abortion rights are one of the most heatedly debates in society. There are many arguments for and against abortion. Each woman has the right to an abortion and the right to have a child. Women have the resources, rights, and respect to make reproductive health decisions that are best for themselves. (“Women’s”) We live in a free country and women should continue to have the choice to do whatever with their body, concerning women’s rights, health issues, and religious reasons.
