One reason the debate about abortion goes nowhere is that each side focuses on a different topic We make no progress because we are not talking about the same thing The pro-abortionist focuses on a womans rights and life and the anti-abortionist focuses on a foetus rights and protecting its life There is actually much agreement between the opposing views Most on both sides would agree that the life of a child is a precious thing that deserves full protection of the law There might be nearly universal agreement that it is a womans exclusive right to make decisions concerning her body So wheres the disagreement The entire complex issue comes down to these questions If so is it always a person or does it somehow become one and when and how might this happen If not does it follow that abortion is morally neutralperson n an individual human being the outward appearance living body exclusive or inclusive of clothing of a human being What is a foetus if it is not a person It is not simply a bunch of cells of the mothers body for what identifies the mothers cells is their DNA and this bunch of cells doesnt share that DNA content If it is not a bunch of the mothers cells then what is it It is a new organism because it contains a completely original set of DNA and it is simply called a foetus Animals plants and single cells are all alive but not people If we work from the premise that the foetus is not in fact a person we have to consider the value of life when it is not that of a human being and then decide what value we give to the life of a foetus The moral weighting of abortion must be based on that value Is killing an animal morally neutral Many people strongly disagree If someone were to murder your dog
