MTX which is not as common as the Mifepristone and Misoprostol (abortion pill)
can be offered, which is usually taken orally, by injection or surgical
procedure can be done through a process called aspiration. After the 16-week
gestation, surgical procedure is performed through the process of dilation and
evacuation. This is when the fetus is given a shot of lethal injection to make
sure that it doesn’t not have the potential of viability when it comes out of
the mother’s uterus. After the second trimester going to the third trimester,
some states in the US have banned any kind of abortion unless there are medical
complications. “Dilation and extraction, however, is now illegal in the United
States in part to the Partial Birth Adoption Ban Act of 1995,” (“American
Pregnancy Association”). Though the fetus is almost fully developed during the
third trimester, some pro-choice supporters think that this act is invading a
woman’s right.

Abortion, being a very controversial
this abortion topic, has polarized the masses. There are two parties: the
pro-life and the pro-choice. Those on the pro-life side believe that an
individual’s life starts right at conception and therefore having an abortion
at any stage after that is considered murder of an innocent human being. They
also believe that the unborn being have the same rights just as their mothers.
On the other hand, when it comes to pro-choice, the mother has the say. The
pro-choice supporters believe that it is a woman’s right to choose what she
wants to do with her body and that the government or religion should not
intervene or limit their choice to have or not have an abortion. However,
religion and the government has become what influences one to have an abortion.
There is always a competition between the United States Catholic and the
American politics when it comes to the issue of abortion. In my opinion I think
that the Church is the one that has made abortion to be a social because opposes
to the legalization of abortion. To put into perspective their argument on
having the government and religion to legalize abortion, the pro-choice argue
that “pregnant women will resort to unsafe illegal abortions if there is no
legal option,” (Background of the Issue-Abortion, 2017). On the other hand, the
pro-life supporters fight for the right of the fetus by justifying their
answers using the Church’s teaching that classify abortion as being not only
morally wrong but also its murder to the innocent being created by God.
According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the church’s
moral teaching on abortion says that, “God loves each human being life from the
instant of his or her conception and entrusts this gift to the protection of
mother and father. Abortions ends the life of a child and offends God. It also wounds
the men and women involved.” In short, the Catholic Church does not give women
any right of choice on abortion because they interpret abortion as an act of
killing and killing is a sin. However, I question where they get their
interpretation from; is it from the Ten Commandments or the Bible? I believe
that a woman should have a right of choice to what she wants to do with her
body without the church or government getting involved, although I still
support their teaching of abortion being morally wrong. I also think the church
should let the woman decide on what is best of her and if it’s a sin as they
call it, it should be between her and her God not her and the Church.

In the United States, abortion issue
is the headline of the political races. Although abortion is legal in all the
states, the court is also battling on how it should deal with cases of
abortion. In 1973 abortion was made legal in all states because of the Supreme
Court decision on Roe V. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. Doe v. Bolton. The case
happened when a woman who was nine weeks pregnant filed a suit claiming that
she had been entitled to an abortion under the constitution because she had
three kids and she won’t be able to support any more. With the help from a
group of abortion doctors, nurses, and social workers, the supreme court
agreed. The Roe V. Wade made abortion in the United States available for women
to have a right to choose on whether they want to have an abortion or not and
that it should be a woman’s right and nothing should come in between to limit
her.

Is abortion immoral or moral? This
is the question that is always debated up on but we still haven’t found an
answer to it yet. Instead we defend it according to the status of the fetus
which always attracts different perspectives. 
Don Marquis, as well as Judith Jarvis Thompson have their point of view
and arguments on whether abortion is moral or immoral. Don Marquis beliefs that
having an abortion is morally wrong. He upholds the fact that abortion takes
away the right of life from the fetus who would have a future just like ours
and thus the killing of an innocent being is morally wrong. In his article of
“Why is Abortion Immoral,” Don Marquis mentions that, “abortion is, with rare
exceptions, seriously immoral” (Pg. 346). Though he does not explain what the
rare exception is, I believe that he meant that not all abortions are wrong. He
also argues that just because a fetus does not value or desire something, that
does not mean that it’s not valuable or desirable. Instead of one having an
abortion, Marquis recommends adopting as a new strategy.

Judith Jarvis Thompson, another
philosopher, makes her argument and shares her view in her article, “A Defense
of Abortion.” Just as the title of the article proposes, Judith Thompson tries
to defend abortion-at least in certain circumstances. She argues that even
though the fetus has the right to life, the mother also has the right to her
own body. Her main argument is that the right to life is not entirely a right.
Thus in some circumstances having an abortion is morally allowed. We know this
when she mentions that, “being a person does not itself, entitle you to use
someone else’s resources, even though those resources are needed in order to
preserve your life. Thus even though we grant that a fetus is a person, that is
not enough to show that the fetus is entitled to the continued use of the
mother’s resources, “(Pg. 333). A mother should have a choice to body. Though
it is morally allowed, in some cases, abortion is impermissive and one does not
have the right to end the life of the fetus because the fetus is also a person.
She gives an example of when women are partially responsible for the presence
of the fetus, by engaging themselves in intercourses with full knowledge that
pregnancy might be the result, then having an abortion at that time is
considered immoral. Hence, Judith Thompson thinks that there is certain
situation where abortion is immoral because not all reason can justify the
ending of the fetus’s life.

In conclusion, before 1973, abortion
was illegal with an exception to when the life of the mother was in danger.
However, in 1973, abortion was made legal in all states in the US because of
the Supreme Court decision on Roe V. Wade. Even though abortion was made legal
there still are controversies about it. It has become one of the most
controversial topics in our modern society. There will always be debate because
the circumstances under which the decision to abort are reached vary and need
to be analyzed exclusively and independently. I believe that a woman should
have the choice to her body with an exception of when a woman voluntarily puts
herself in a situation where she knows the outcome and consequences of her
choice and her religion or the government should not come in between to limit
her freedom of choice.
