FOR OR AGAINST

AGAINST

  • Imago Dei-We are the image of God, our personalites reflect God
  • Sanctity of Life- Our life is a gift from God. It is sanctified so it is holy, sacred and valuable.
  • Murder is against the 10 commandments: "Do not Murder"

FOR

  • Poor quality of life- May be a single parent, financially unstable, accidental pregnancy so would be poor and not have a good quality of life.
  • Mentally/Physically ill- If mother has had a scan and baby will have a have a disease or be mentally unstable, the best decision may be to terminate the pregnancy to stop the child from having a short or bad quality of life. For example, if the baby has been diagnosed with Downs Syndrome, it will not live for long and could be bullied at school.
