Pro-Life versus Pro-Choice

Nicki Scully

Morals

Everyone's morals are different, but most people are against murder. Most people can also agree that a person is considered dead when their heart stops beating. So would a fetus be considered alive when it develops heartbeat? Although the answer seems simple, the time that a fetus is considered a life is actually an opinion.

Facts Supporting the Pro-Choice Movement

  • Within the 20 years before abortion was legal in the U.S. "nearly one million women went 'underground' each year for illegal operations."
  • Of those one million women tens of thousands of them were severely injured or dead.
  • When an abortion is performed in a clinic under the right conditions it's considered "one of the safest medical procedures in the U.S."
  • There's less than a .3% chance of major complications and when it's performed in the first trimester that goes down to .05% chance.
  • "Assuming that a woman cannot decide for herself if and when to bear a child demeans women."
  • If a woman were to give birth to an unwanted child it could cause severe damage to the child. They aren't cared for properly, in some cases aren't loved like a child needs to be, this could even end up in abandonment--emotionally and physically damaging the child for the rest of it's life.
