    society. The second a fetus is fertilized it has the right to life. Though abortion has not yet been banned, laws still have some sort of involvement when women decide to undergo abortion. Abortion is one of the most complex situation when falling into the prolife/prochoice debate. Prolife can be defined as the baby must be born despite all other viability or quality of life whereas prochoice is that each person has full control over what they do with their own body with respect to their reproductive systems as long as they do not breach anybody else’s reproductive system. It is clear that the reason why there is conflict is due to abortion. It can go either way on the debate depending on the situation and the beliefs that an individual may have. However, though the law protects unborn fetuses there should be other preventions and rights that should be contemplated, such as the absolute right to be born no matter the circumstances of the parent, and the right to adoption. Fetus are protected to an extent due to the prolife/prochoice debate, however they should be fully protected from…

    Thomson argues that even under the premise that the fetus is a person, the fetus’s right to life does not automatically override the mother’s right to abortion. She argues this point by presenting an analogy of an unconscious violinist whose kidney is forcibly attached to the readers’ to maintain the violinist’s life. This condition will last for nine months, she tells the readers. She seeks (to invoke/conjure) a common reaction of aversion to have the readers rethink the idea the person’s…

    has the “... right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”, most would argue that a fetus of any age should have this right (July 4, 1776). However, a fetus is not a human until it is born and can sustain life on its own. And those who argue that life begins at conception are wrong, otherwise the placental tissue that also forms at conception would be considered a new life and need protection as well.

    have read. For example, In “The Wrong of Abortion” by Patrick Lee and Robert P. George they explained, the right to life is something that is earned at that time of conception and the right to vote comes as a right when you are at the age in life to vote. However, someone's right to life comes at conception. It does not change no matter the circumstances that life gives us. I believe that everyone deserves to get a chance at life no matter what. This has helped me maintain my position and…

Anthony (see Appendix A) audaciously led the United States in the direction of equal rights, and her legacy aided in the fulfillment of her goals and greatest desires. Susan B. Anthony’s early life and upbringing had a pointed influence on her beliefs…
