Pro-Life According to Wikipedia an "Abortion" is the termination of pregnancy by the induced removal of an embryo or fetus (that is incapable of survival outside the body of the woman) which results in the death of the embryo/fetus. According to the Guttmatcher Institute, In 2012, there were approximately 1.21 million abortions in the United States alone. Abortion is an inalienable right. Abortion is not a violation of any right, because there is no such thing as the freedom to live inside (or outside) of another human being as a parasite, i.e., against the will of that person. A fetus is a potential human being so it should have legal protection. Research indicates that 98% of all abortions are related to issues of “personal choice.” The primary reasons women give for having an abortion include not feeling emotionally capable (32%) or financially capable (25%) of raising a child, and concern that having a child would drastically alter her life (16%). A 2000-2001 study by the Guttmacher Institute also found that about half of women having abortions had been using contraception during the month they became pregnant; 16.9% of women claimed their contraceptives failed despite proper use. A fetus is human, in the sense that it contains human DNA; however, a fetus, like an embryo, is not a human being, as it has no means of independent physiological existence (as does a baby, child, or adult). As such, it is a potential human being, just like an acorn is a potential oak tree. It contains all of the DNA of an oak tree, but it is not an oak tree. I am strongly against abortion. I believe that life starts at conception, and that in almost all circumstances abortion is wrong. The baby that is growing inside of you is depending on you, so when you make the choice to end that life, you are making the choice to murder another person. Someone that believes in the pro-choice theory would say that the decision is up to the woman, but the person with the pro-life theory would say that it is murder no matter what the situation. Would you consider it murder to kill a
right to life is mostly underlying. There is some controversy stating if you are pro-choice or pro-life? This means that a persons right to life is more essential than other rights. It is the women's right to be Pro-Choice bringing a fetus to full term or to Pro-Life, the right of the fetus being born. Each of these movements have a way to influence Americas opinion now.
There are two main groups that people's opinions are divided into, these are the Pro-Choice and Pro-Life arguments. Pro-Choice…
Abortion or murder! No one believes that it is correct to take a life of another person, so why is it okay to take the life of a fetus or zygote. You are violating the rights of the soon to be person, and he/she is completely defenseless against the situation. Why would you take the life of someone when there are alternatives that do not harm or kill anyone. There are also preventatives and contraceptives so that women who feel they do not want a kid can prevent having one. There are plenty of reasons…
The subject of debate by the pro-life and pro-choice groups. Women that have abortions usually don’t know that people will qualify that as murder. They don’t realize the possible medical complications this may cause or the emotional impact that it will have on their life. No matter how much the topic has been argues abortion will always be immoral.
Since life begins at conception abortion is considered murder. In which it is the act of taking another humans life. Although…
Abortion is the termination of pregnancy before the baby is capable of independent life. Therefore, it is the termination of a person's life. Abortion ends a pregnancy by destroying and disposing of the developing child. It stops the beating of an innocent child's heart, which has already begun to beat. Most abortions occur between 6-10 weeks. At the time in the baby's life all parts of the brain and spinal cord are formed, the heart pumps blood to every part of the body. Different…
and contraception in our society today seem to have become accepted as a normal part of life. People have lost respect for human life and any consequences that may arise from their actions. Our conscience enables us to have the ability to choose, so that we choose to do what is right and just in the eye of God. If people follow their conscience it would be very difficult for them to live a happy and peaceful life after committing the act of abortion. As Catholics we are called to follow the moral law…
The YOLO Wallpaper

If you ever get the opportunity to spend the summer in an ancestral country home as a reprieve from the anxieties of city life, you should do it. Even if you think it’s haunted. Even if it isn’t really your choice. After all, you only live once.
Love like you’ve never been imprisoned by your overbearing husband. Eat like this is the last meal he will let the maid bring up to you before you have to come down and be pleasant in front of company. Behave like they…

Abortion:” the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by resulting in or closely followed by the death of an embryo or fetus.”
Abortion has been forever a very controversial issue, unlike any other debated topic today. A much rather asked question is whether or not the unborn child is perceived as human. Thus, being pro-life, my claim is that the unborn child is a human, not just an embryo.
that leaves many people torn between one side or the other. Pro-Choice VS Pro-Life activists are ones that are firmly set in their ways because it’s a matter of morals to define who has the rights and why should one be able to overrule the other: mother vs. child.
In the matters of the mothers rights verse the child’s, it comes down to a matter of when the fetus should be considered a baby with full-fledged legal rights. Pro-Life and Pro-Choice come at a stand still when it revolves around the matter…

Pro-Choice Vs. Pro-Life
Expulsion of a fetus before it is able to survive, this is the argument between pro-choice vs. pro-life, an argument that goes as far back as 1000b.c. The majority of abortions happen during the first trimester prior to the 13th week of gestation. I believe in pro-choice, although I believe there should also be a time period in which it should be…
Abortion: Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice
Abortion: Pro-Life Vs. Pro-Choice
“Abortion is the spontaneous or artificially induced expulsion of an embryo or fetus” (Abortion, 2002). An artificially induced abortion is the type referred to in the legal context. Abortions happen in different situations. The question comes when is it the right or wrong choice. The root question becomes the moment a fetus becomes a person and entitled to rights. The fetus could be a person at conception, during…
