The Concept of Abortion - The Concept of Abortion "Abortion is never justified" I neither agree or disagree with this statement. I mostly disagree with the concept of abortion, but in some cases I feel it is morally acceptable. For example, if the mother has been raped then having the child would only remind her of the unfortunate incident and she may never be able to love her child in the same way she would with a child who was conceived normally....   [tags: Papers] 442 words

Abortion is Not Murder - Abortion is Not Murder Is abortion murder?  Murder is defined as "illegal killing with malice aforethought." Abortion fails this definition for two reasons. First, abortion is not illegal, and second, there is no evidence to suggest that expecting mothers feel malice towards their own flesh and blood. Not all killing is murder, of course. Murder is actually a small subset of all killing, which includes accidental homicide, killing in self-defense, suicide, euthanasia, etc. When pro-life activists call abortion "murder," they are suggesting that abortion fits the definition of murder, namely, "illegal killing with malice aforethought." However, abortion fails this definition for two reaso...   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics] 1201 words

The Problem with Abortion - On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court legalized abortion and in turn the termination of pregnancy had become the most frequently performed operation on adults in the United States. An abortion is the termination of a pregnancy by loss or destruction of the fetus before birth. An abortion may be spontaneous or induced. The latter is an act with ethical and legal ramifications. Where I stand on the issue of abortion is somewhat confusing to me even sometimes. I do not think that it is right to kill a baby, but on the other hand I would rather see a child be aborted than it thrown in the trash after birth or abused and neglected by the parents....   [tags: essays research papers] 1819 words

Abortion Rights - An abortion is the act of removing the fetus from the uterus of a female before giving birth. Since 2700 BCE, women have used various methods to obtain an abortion, including the use of herbs and sharp instruments. Luckily, techniques have advanced significantly since then to allow for a safer procedure. However, there are still debates even today about whether or not having an abortion is constitutional. There are facts for and against this decision including the assessment on if the growing child inside the pregnant mother has their own right to live yet....   [tags: fetus, pregnancy, law, pro-choice, pro-life]

In Defense Of Abortion - For hundreds of years women helped each other to abort their pregnancies. Without legal prohibitions, women in Europe and the United States provided abortions and trained each other to perform the procedures. In the past century different states had begun to outlaw any procedure that would terminate or avoid pregnancy. In 1973(?) the United States Supreme Court asserted a woman's constitutional right to abortion in determining Roe v. Wade. After several decades of quiet disagreement, abortion has once again become a political hotbed....   [tags: Freedom of Choice, Pro-Choice Essays] 1639 words

The Meaning of Abortion - The Meaning of Abortion An abortion is the premature expulsion of a foetus from the uterus resulting the ending, or termination of a pregnancy before the baby is capable of surviving outside the mother's womb. It may happen naturally in which case it is called a miscarriage. However, if it is induced by an unnatural interference, it is called an abortion, or a termination. A miscarriage is often the result of stress on an expectant mother because she usually wants to have her baby and a miscarriage is not of her choosing; an abortion is normally carried out with the agreement of the woman....   [tags: Papers] 2280 words

She and her husband decide to have an abortion, because in the back of their minds killing is better than neglecting or the option of adoption.

Is Abortion a Right? - We Americans cherish our rights. Since the Supreme Court's ruling in Row vs. Wade, a woman's right to have an abortion has become the law of the land. Once a right to do something has been established in this country, it becomes near impossible to take it away. Pro-choice advocates accuse their opponents, pro-life advocates, of wanting to take this right away from women. It is a strong argument, and no doubt true, but if the right to have an abortion is ever taken away in this country, it will come from the pro-choice left, and not from the pro-life right....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Abortion is Not Bad - Abortion is Not Bad Abortion is not bad, rather it is your logic and argumentation that is lacking in ability and understanding. First, you argue that the presence of a beating heart alone necessarily qualifies a fetus as being a living human being that is entitles to a right to life. While on its face this argument may initially appear compelling, it is profoundly lacking in scientific substantiation. A fetus during the first trimester of development may have a small impulse that resembles a heart beat, but it completely lacks both a brain and a central nervous system....   [tags: Papers] 624 words

Abortion and Ethics - Abortion and Ethics According to the Websterâs New World Dictionary, the first definition of abortion is the spontaneous act in which the body expels an embryo or fetus before it is able to survive, miscarriage (Neufeldt & Guralnik, 4). Yet others define abortion as ãthe termination of a pregnancy with resulting death of the human fetus,ä relating more to the planned procedures to produce this specific response (Ashley & OâRourke, 141). In our society we have taken on this second view of the meaning, rather than abortion being a spontaneous act, it is a deliberate procedure sought by the mother that removes an embryo or fetus....   [tags: Life Pregnancy Fetus Papers]

These two different views are like two mathematical principles, in that although these two views have many differences, they also have larger similarities in the background. For example, when pro-choice activists support abortions due to unwanted pregnancies, the activists are not rallying behind the idea of sexual incompetency (pregnancies due to lack of birth control)....   [tags: essays research papers] 1439 words

Abortion - Abortion The right to have an abortion is a woman’s right not to have a conceived child. According to Compton’s Encyclopedia, an abortion is the loss of a fetus before it is able to live outside the womb (1).

Many people, such as myself, believe that it is a woman’s right to have an abortion, and no man, organization, or any form of government should take that right away from her....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

All of this changed however in 1973 during the landmark Supreme Court Case of Roe v. Wade which legalized abortion.

Abortion - Abortion, termination of a pregnancy before birth, resulting in the death of the fetus. Some abortions occur naturally because a fetus does not develop normally or because the mother has an injury or disorder that prevents her from carrying the pregnancy to term. This type of spontaneous abortion is commonly known as a miscarriage. Other abortions are induced—that is, intentionally brought on—because a pregnancy is unwanted or presents a risk to a woman’s health, or because the fetus is likely to have severe physical or mental health problems....   [tags: essays research papers] 350 words

When this happens spontaneously we call it a miscarriage. Induced abortion is brought about deliberately by a medical procedure that ends pregnancy.
