    • 5 Pages

    Judith Thomson argues that even if a fetus is a person, abortion is not murder or wrongful killing when conception is a product of rape,when the mother’s life is endangered, or when the mother has taken reasonable precautions to avoid being pregnant. Thomson uses analogical reasoning to show that in these situations, abortion is a woman’s choice and is not murder.

    Immoral”, Don Marquis concludes that any action that deprives an individual of a valuable future is a serious prima facie morally wrong. Marquis argues that a fetus has a “future like ours”(FLO) of great value and killing the fetus deprives the fetus of that future. Therefore, killing a fetus is morally wrong and since abortion is killing a fetus, abortion is morally wrong. I have chosen to analyze natural law and ethical egoism as it relates to abortion. Ethical egoism agrees with abortion…

    abortion should not be allowed, and it is a very immoral decision to make for women because people think that abortion is just like committing murder and it is killing the human fetus. There are some people think that it depends on how large the fetus is. If the fetus is small, it does not count as murder, but if the fetus is large, it can be considered as murder. I do believe that abortion is like killing a human, but it only depends on what kind of situation. It’s very difficult to judge…

    saying that a woman does not have a duty to preserve the life of her fetus even if it is her genetic child. As the supreme court stated, denying an abortion may lead stressful life and future for the mother. A woman has a right to do what she pleases with her body especially in the case of rape-induced pregnancy.

    interests. Sentience implies that a fetus is not a person until the fetus has the ability to feel. Therefore, using contraception is in no means impermissible since the sperm and ovum alone are not sentient and therefore do not have any interests to consider. Sentience does not develop until around 20 weeks into the pregnancy, therefore any time before then the fetus is not considered a person. Since fetuses are sentient at around 20 weeks, the interests of that fetus must be equally considered…

    right to their own life and findings. Although the baby has constitutional rights, there are still many exceptions to abortion. If a fetus is the result of sexual abuse or if certain maternal diseases take place, abortion should be a legal path for the mother to take. Abortion should be a legal choice for a woman to make when rape and sexual assault took place and a fetus is an outcome. Rape alone is a horrible concept.…

    Abortion and euthanasia are two of the most controversial moral dilemmas in modern philosophy. Abortion, the act of intentional killing of a fetus during pregnancy, is condemned in almost all cases by natural law standards. Euthanasia, the act of intentional killing with the intention of relieving a person from great suffering, would also be deemed immoral and irrational by a natural lawyer. Professor Gómez-Lobo defends these natural law teachings in his book, Morality and the Human Goods.…
