Abortion is one of the most controversial issues around concerning moral philosophy, and is an issue that will never be agreed upon. By bringing morals into the question of whether it should be legal to have abortions, this issue has been elevated to a higher level. By some people, it is no longer looked at as a question of choice but as a question of morality, and these concepts have led to a full-blown debate over something that really should not be questioned. Every woman in the world should have the right to decide what to do with their bodies. No government or group of people should be able to dictate to a woman what to do with her body. People who say that they are "pro-life" are in effect no more than "anti-choice". When discussing abortion there are many arguments for and against that can be touched upon. Arguments which support abortion include; rights to have a choice, and that a fetus is not a person. Arguments which do not support abortion include the following: right to life, and immorality of eliminating a human being. .
Arguments For Abortion.
Although abortion is legal in most areas of the world, it remains to be frowned upon by society because of its so called immorality. This should not be the issue because in many cases abortion is the best option. Many incidents occur when a woman is raped and thus leads to pregnancy, or a woman gets pregnant but does not have the money to provide a healthy living for her newborn. Women caught in similar situations should not be forced to give birth to a child. A woman should have the choice if she sees fit to have an abortion. It is her own body thus she should have the option to make the decision on her own. What if the birth of the child would result in the death of the mother, or would severely endanger her health? Is it still more important that the child be born? There are also cases when a woman's health is put in jeopardy by having a child at all, forcing such a woman to bring a child to term, would be no less than attempted murder.
