“Abortion In Real Life”

In my most honest opinion, I believe that most people in the world would agree with me when I say that abortion is an extremely sensitive and ethically controversial topic.

That being said, one can develop the wrong idea that a fetus is already an innocent human being. Now this is not to say that the first part wasn’t a “self-evident truth,” because it is. The modern definition of human contains two senses in which it could be used. The first sense of the word is used usually when regarding a full-fledged member of the moral community. In the second sense of the word it is used to describe a human genetically. A misinformed…
