Abortion in America is a controversial issue in which both sides have valid arguments at face value The pro-choice side has many arguments to support it belief in keeping abortion legal Many of these are faulty and argue points irrelevant to the issue as I will attempt to illustrate thereby eliminating the main pro-choice arguments The pro-life position has somewhat different ideas The most popular of these is The unborn entity is fully human from the moment of conception Abortion results in the intentional death of the unborn entity Therefore abortion can be defined the intentional killing of a human being This killing is in most cases unjustified since the unborn human being has a full right to life If however there is a high probability that a womans pregnancy will result in her death such as tubal pregnancy for example then abortion is justified For it is a greater good that one human should live the mother rather than two die the mother and her child Or in such cases the intent is not to kill the unborn but to save the life of the mother With the exception of such cases abortion is an act in which an innocent human being is intentionally killed therefore abortion should be made illegal as are all other such acts of killing One argument made by people in favor of abortion is an appeal to pity When one fallaciously argues by appealing to pity one is arguing that certain actions should be permitted or tolerated out of pity for those performing them when in fact the basis for showing them pity is not a legitimate basis for the action For example a woman who argues that she should not receive a parking ticket because her child was crying and she took her child to a candy store to cheer her up is appealing to pity The following abortion rights arguments are examples Anyone who goes to pro-choice
