Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Abortion Coursework Abortion is never justified- do you agree? Yes No Abortion is murder Rape, incest Life is Gods gift, we should not destroy Mother is unable to care for baby. e.g. very young, mental or physical health problems/ We have no right to take a unique life, everyone should have an equal chance to live. To save the mothers life There are possibly many other arguments for both sides of the argument but most of them are so closely linked that I would just be repeating myself. Rape and incest is traumatic for the woman, but think if that woman had to keep that child, a constant reminder of a horrible event. Growing up asking who his daddy was, 'I don't know, he raped me.'

Abortion should be legal in case the mothers' life is at risk. If giving birth to the baby would kill the mother, then having an abortion is the best solution. This especially true if the mother already has children because the loss of their mother would be awful. A motherless baby would also be sad. If a pregnant woman is diagnosed with cancer, she can wait until she has given birth before she starts the treatment. This decision is often swung by how late in the pregnancy it is.

Conclusion

In Jesus' time, being unable to have children was seen as a curse from God. So if a baby is Gods gift, should we really be destroying it? Each human being is different, there is no genetic pattern the same on this earth, or ever will be (unless cloned). Aborting a foetus is taking an original life, which will never be again. An original life that never asked to be created, but since they were created, would probably like to live. Aborting because we think they won't have a good life is no excuse for use to delete them from existence. Everyone should be given an equal chance to prove him or herself in life. I personally think that abortion is justified, in the right circumstances. Exploiting abortion is wrong. But if they right and safe precautionary measures are taken, and adhered to, then abortion could stop a lot of sadness, traumatism and unwanted babies. ...read more.
