Christian Abortion Essay

Good Essays
Abortion has been around for quit sometime now, and its support is only getting stronger. Advocates of abortion emphasize one’s ability to have the choice of whether that person wants to keep the baby or not. They believe that the person that was conceived is technically not a human being yet, and is a person once the mother has given birth to the child. Because they believe that the person they are aborting is not a human, it is then okay to end its life. They make arguments such as having the option of abortion will help victims of rape, incest, or if the person is just not ready to have a child. It is understandable for some to think having the option to not give birth to a child that was a result of rape. However, some people such as Christians believe that abortion is in fact wrong. Christians believe that the moment a person is conceived, it is in fact a human being. …show more content…
We would all want the ability to fix a wrong act once it occurs, but unfortunately that is not how life works. People who are pro-choice (abortionists) want the ability to fix a mistake without facing any consequences. The concept that one can just have unprotected sex without any ramification is what people who are pro-choice really want. However, just like what Galatians 6:7 says, and how one will reap the consequences of his or her actions. Sadly, people always try to find a way to bypass the effects of their actions. Everyone knows that raising a child takes a lot of responsibility, time, and costs money. When abortionists say that abortion is good for people like rape victims, it is a good argument. However, the majority of people who have an abortion are not rape victims. The main reason why people have an abortion is because that person feels as though they are not ready to raise a child. So when people who are pro-choice make the argument that abortion is great for rape victims, it only a

    Argument On Abortion

    In the article titled Abortion: A Pro-Choice Perspective, Robert Blake argues that, “We see the fetus as a potential life to continued development is subordinate to the mother’s right to privacy, which includes the right to terminate an unwanted pregnancy.” (Blake, pg. 5). People who are pro-life believe that if we legalize abortions, than women will get them anytime and anywhere. When the baby is first conceived, there is evidence that it truly is just a clump of cells and hasn’t formed into anything. Perhaps, we will use the example from the reading titled A Defense of Abortion by Judith Thomson.…

    A common argument for people who argue that abortion should not be legal is that they think abortion is a murder. Although there are laws about when women are able to do an abortion, some people still think it is a murder if they do an abortion early in the pregnancy since they refer to it as a life. In addition, the people who think that abortion should be illegal say that the unborn babies are human and have a right to life, and when pregnant women make an abortion they take away the right to life for the baby. Another argument that is used by the people who are against abortion is how it is morally wrong to do an abortion, it is similar to the previous arguments since the people who are against abortion think that it is morally wrong to not give birth to a child that a woman is pregnant with and not give it a life that it has the right to. Although there are many arguments about how abortion should not be legal, there are also arguments about why abortion should be legal.…

    There has been a long existing debate of “Pro-Life” versus “Pro-Choice” about whether or not women should be able to abort a child. Many people being Pro-Choice will use the argument that the fetus isn 't a living person, and rather that it is the woman’s body; therefore the woman’s choice. There are other options women have such as adoption: waiting until the baby is born and providing the child a well-suited family to properly care for them. I believe any way you can avoid aborting a child is better than abortion because you give the child a chance for life. An unborn child in the womb contains all of the characteristics for it to be considered living, proving abortion is morally and scientifically wrong.…

    People who are pro-choice or pro-abortion supports abortion because it is the “women’s rights” to choose what they want for their body (“Abortion”). They felt that the government do not have the rights to interfere with whether or not women should continue the pregnancy. It is their body and their choice to go through abortion, I understand that. I also understand why they would go through abortion due to rape, incest, and risk of the mothers’ life and those are the few of the many reasons why people would support pro-abortion or pro-choice. Women has more than just the ability to get rid of an unborn baby, they have the rights to vote, to work, and much more.…

    People also think it is acceptable to have an abortion because they do not want to bring an unwanted child into the world due to birth defects. No reason is a good reason for killing an innocent, vulnerable child. In fact, out of all the abortions performed for expecting mothers, less than one-percent of them are to save the life of a woman. Also, to perform an abortion because the child has a birth defect is discriminatory against people with disabilities. Additionally, the baby’s right to be alive is much more important than the mother’s right of deciding whether she wants a child or not.…

    (Lowen) I would argue that it’s risky either way. An abortion can prevent the mother from dying from those complications. Many pro-life people say there are a lot of women who have had a pregnancy and regret it. What if the mother didn’t have an abortion and regret that also? There’s always two sides to it.…
