The writer of this paper argues that there is no moral and ethical debate here, but rather a simple argument against abortion as a form of murder. The writer argues that no matter what the circumstances, aborting a fetus is the same as murdering a life.
From the Paper:"An argument for abortion is that it allows a woman her rights and lets her get rid of an unwanted child, which may be due to rape or unsafe sex. If we look at the statistics we see that nationally, the number of abortions a year has leveled off to about 1.2 million a year. In 1990 it was 1.4 million. (Kiniorski, Kerri-Ann; 03-01-1998)
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention attribute the decline, in part, to a drop in unwanted pregnancies. And that brings the circle back to family planning. Birth control makes fewer abortions necessary. Women claim that they have the right to kill the fetus because they do not want the child. Why do they have the right? As adults they have certain responsibilities. They have the responsibility of being held accountable for their actions. (Contemporary Women's Issues Database, 07-01-1998, pp 20-3.)"
