Introduction To An Essay About Abortion
It can be very difficult to exactly state at which point the embryo becomes human being.However, many people agree on the fact that the fetus takes up human form and becomes a human a long time before birth.Thompson writes there are many people in this world who think that a fetus is a human being as soon as it is conceived, but that is not the case.A fetus is not human until very late in the pregnancy and in the first few weeks it is only a biological entity that is amidst its developmental stage.But the choice should not be left up to them after the embryo has developed to a stage where it gets the human traits.They should only be allowed to do abortion in the first ten to twelve weeks of pregnancy and doctors should not allow them to do abortion if the fetus is in the later stages of development.
Many people, those who are pro-life and against abortion, consider the fetus as a human being, as a person from the moment that the cell is conceived.
They think abortion is like committing murder as it is killing the human fetus.
Others feel that the parents should have the right to choose and it is not murder until the baby is born.
If they think of the fetus as a human being right when it is conceived, then abortion at any stage would be considered as murder. And does she not have the right to choose to kill her baby if she wants to?
Overall, throughout the many years of American history, a constant debate has been made on finding out whether abortion is good or bad.
