Specific Purpose: To persuade the audience to chose life Abortion is when a mother decides to terminate her pregnancy. Many people have different opinions about this ethical and moral issue. Some people think that abortion is okay, while others believe that it is inhumane and against their moral and/or religious beliefs. (Advance Slide)

In 1973, the Supreme Court decision based on Roe v. Wade opened the door to legalize abortion nationally. However, the Constitution does not mention abortions, so therefore, this issue belongs to the states. This has been a serious controversy for 38 years.

According to statistics, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA or PP) conducts the greatest number of abortions in America. After doing careful research on both sides of this issue, I believe that abortion is still morally and ethically wrong. (Advance Slide)

ARGUMENTS IN FAVOR OF ABORTION

.../or regretted having the abortion. Negative reactions may be delayed for 10 or more years, when a woman feels with her pain and doubts all alone.

True equality for all involved with a pregnancy should also include the father’s right to choose life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for their baby, who received chromosomes from both parents. If Roe v. Wade is in the future overturned by the Supreme Court, then all decisions on abortion can be returned to the individual states.

Fifty-six years ago, an unmarried college girl became pregnant. She had a decision to make. She delivered a baby boy and then chose a mother and father to adopt him. Her decision changed the history of the modern world. This baby boy was given the name (Advance Slide) Steve Jobs. His birth mother made the right decision and chose life. I hope that all of you would do the same.

Essay about Abortion: Pro-Life is the Logical Argument - 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”).
