A Womens Right to Choose During the past quarter century abortion has joined race and war as one of the most popular subjects of controversy in the United States Abortion poses a moral social and medical dilemma that challenges the way many of us think and feel There are many points of view toward abortion but the only two fine distinctions are pro-choice and pro-life A pro-choicer would feel that the decision to abort a pregnancy is that of the mothers and the state has no right to interfere A pro-lifer would hold that from the moment of conception the embryo or fetus is person This life imposes on us a moral obligation to preserve it and that abortion is tantamount to murder As with all arguments there are strengths and weaknesses to both sides I personally feel that since I have never been in the position to make the decision of whether or not to have an abortion I cannot take one side or the other I do however feel that abortion should remain legal because the consequence s of it becoming illegal far outweigh the benefits The traditional argument against abortion basically says that killing an innocent person is wrong And I agree with that But it also says that abortion is the same as murder Therefore making abortion is wrong too But the weakness in this argument is that we do not have a clear definition of a person No scientific proof has been established that says that a fetus in the womb is an actual person So we cannot compare abortion to murder if we cant even define it More modern arguments for abortion say that it doesnt matter if the fetus is a person or not Judith Thompson says that if the man and woman have taken all precautions against pregnancy and a pregnancy still results than that women is not responsible
