In his explanation of his behavior, Socrates also adds that part of his duty as a wise man, is to make sure that he questions the behavior of other wise men to make sure that those men are also aware
Abortion Rights: Who has the upper hand in the fight for abortion rights? When touching the subject of abortion, one must consider that there are two sides battling for control. That is right, abortion has literally turned into a war zone where even the unlikely of individuals do the unthinkable. Each side has their motives and methods for contradicting the other.

Crito argues that Socrates should escape because if he does not, Crito will lose a dear friend and Socrates’ children will lose their father, who was meant to teach and to raise them. Crito also make the argument that it may bring him embarrassment if Socrates is executed and may imply that Crito did not have enough wealth to bribe the guards and free him. This shows us the corruption that was prevalent in the Athenian government and how the failure to exploit the flaws in the justice system was actually seen as something of a mark of
NORTHERN ARIZONA UNIVERSITY Socrates Adnan Alghamdi 5/14/2015 Plato’s Apology was simply his version of Socrates’ speech during his defense against the charges leveled against him. Those charges related to the failure to observe the beliefs, which existed at that time. In the Crito, in which Socrates conversed with Crito, who was a wealthy individual, Socrates holds that it is wrong to punish an injustice, with another form of injustice. In fact, he even turns down the offer by Crito to assist him to escape from the prison confines for the charges that he was facing. As the dialogue takes place in a prison cell, it is evident that a criminal offence has been committed, and that the justice system is effective in as far as serving justice to offenders is concerned. In spite of Crito offering to assist Socrates to escape from prison, he declines the offer, and instead educates his wealthy friend on the need to have respect for the justice system.
Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy. Since 1973 abortion has been an important controversial issue within the United States. 1973 marks the year that the famous Rowe versus Wade case was decided before the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled that abortion be legal and available to all women. Legal abortions can be performed up until the sixteenth week of pregnancy, after sixteen weeks most doctors or clinics will not perform the procedure unless keeping the baby presents a medical risk to the mother. Even in these situations abortions are very risky after sixteen weeks.
Sanha Ryoo PHIL 127 Paper 1 02 October 2014 The Unexamined Life Through several dialogues Plato gives readers accounts of Socrates’ interactions with other Athenians. While some may think of him as a teacher of sorts, Socrates is adamant in rejecting any such claim (Plato, Apology 33a-b). He insists that he is not a teacher because he is not transferring any knowledge from himself to others, but rather assisting those he interacts with in reaching the truth. This assistance is the reason Socrates walks around Athens, engaging in conversation with anyone that he can convince to converse with him. An assertion he makes at his trial in Plato’s Apology is at the center of what drives Socrates in his abnormal ways, “the unexamined life is not worth living for a human being” (38a). Socrates, through aporia, looks to lead an examined life to perfect his soul and live as the best person he can be. This paper looks to examine the ‘unexamined life’ and the implications rooted in living a life like Socrates’.
To begin, Plato explains the story of Socrates and how his settlement has failed him and sentenced him upon an unjust trial. The Five Dialogues focus on the reality of Socrates’ life and the frustrations that he must face in order to define his own actions. Euthyphro answers Socrates on the premises of murdering a stranger by saying:
Abortion is not only a woman's right, it is a woman's choice. Allowing abortion to e legal is immoral. A pre-born child is given the status of a product of pregnancy and never seen as the miracle only a woman can create. Compassion for the small one is drowned out under a demand for rights, but what about the rights for the unborn.
Pro-choice Abortion 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.

Crito suggested that people would think that he wasn’t willing to spend the money and that he value money above friends (“Crito”, 2). This may be true but Socrates responded by saying that he should not value or listen to other people’s opinions if they were to degrade you or misinform you because they are worthless. Socrates explain that people should listen to words that can better one self or words that are actually worth listening to. He gave an example in the dialogue, which he explains that good opinions come from the wise, while the worthless ones come from the ignorant (“Crito”, 4). Socrates explains that a man in training should only listen to his trainer and that the trainee should be fearful for the criticism and should only welcome the praises for only that person. If the trainee was to dishonor his master or trainers opinions and honors others those who knew nothing about the topic or subject, then the trainee is just causing harm to himself (“Crito”, 4). Socrates is suggesting that people shouldn’t care for other people’s thoughts and opinions unless they are bettering
