Since the 1900s women have found ways to have rights. On January 22, 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court said it was a woman’s right to have an abortion due to the Fourteenth amendment. This case, Roe v. Wade, is a case that went down in history and to this day, still has the public bickering over the results. On one hand, you have citizens that are pro-life and believe life is created at conception, and that every life is valuable and should not be destroyed.

Stacy uses pathos when she says “once you’ve brought a child into this world, you are responsible for the safety, health, education, and well-being of that person for at least the next eighteen years” (Stacy).

Many of these church groups believes life starts at conception and to abort a life, one is committing murder, which is a sin. While many churches are pro-life, some religious groups allow exceptions, such as in instances of rape or if the pregnancy can cause harm to the mother. The churches stand point on abortion does not always, exactly match the standpoint of the individuals attending the churches either.
