    • 2 Pages

    After conducting background research about abortion and relating it back to multiple moral systems, I have come to a conclusion about my own personal stance on abortion.

I see no problem with women taking charge of their bodies when they believe that abortion is the right choice for themselves. Because, in reality, how would one know whether or not an abortion is the right thing to do until it is their own decision to make? Rhetorical questions aside, it…

Although a fetus does have some rights, I believe the fetus and embryo should have nearly complete protection and…
