Abortion is the termination of an unborn child in its mother's womb for up to twenty four weeks of the pregnancy or in special circumstances e.g. Disability diagnosis a termination right up until the mother goes in to labor. There are several reasons why abortion is illegal and several reasons why it shouldn’t be legal. The act of abortion should be banned because it deliberately destroys a human life. I believe that every form of the act, without any exceptions, should be outlawed simply because abortion is merely "murdering out of convenience". From the moment that a child is conceived, no matter how small or underdeveloped he or she may seem, that child is a human being that is a separate part of its mother and a human entity all its own. And the taking of a human life by another human being is easily defined as homicide, which under other circumstances would be punishable by law.
Many people try to rationalize their actions by saying that their abortion actually contributes to society and that “if legal abortion were not available, more women would experience unwanted childbearing” and that “mothers with unwanted births suffer from higher levels of depression” thus resulting in the abuse of their “unwanted children”. However, women have the opportunity to opt for an adoption for their unborn child, not only letting an innocent child live but giving another family the prospect of having a very wanted addition to their household. Would we “eliminate” a child simply because he or she is unwanted by their parents? No, our society would find an alternative home for the child while caring for him or her in federal funded homes until a proper caretaker is obtained. Aborting an unborn infant is essentially the same as murdering an unwanted child who lives outside of the womb. Both are seen by their parent(s) as “valueless” individuals in society and an inconvenience to the parents themselves.

My first point that concerns the prevention abortion is

    The Advantages of Stupidity Most people say being stupid will lead no where. They claim that it is the worst possible condition in which to spend one's life, and if possible, it should be completely avoided. They would even suggest if the symptoms of stupidity are caught in the early stages, it could easily be treated by a surgeon. The most effective method used to do this is the chainsaw technique, later described in volume two. Yet, perhaps if people took a closer look at some of the…

    From the point of a frustrated and confused member of the social order, it appears to me that we are living in a society where stupidity easily fits into a simple, three tier, hierarchical model. Where Darwin argued that species adapt, I would argue that--at least where "civilized" culture is concerned--humanity's intellectual evolution is rapidly decreasing, therefore allowing us as a whole to adapt to a culture where the art of thinking is becoming obsolete. This author submits to you that, due…

All people have done is create chaos and conflict among one another. It concerns to aiding war, segregation, and hatred. People also destroy other’s lives to develop industrial substances like companies and factories, also the architecture of building new homes, which cost people their lives. My philosophical question…

    Stupidity vs. Ignorance “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity,” explained Martin Luther King, Jr. Even forty-five year after his death, Dr. King still continues to preach a very bold message to the world. Although stupidity and ignorance may seem very similar, they are very different. Ignorance is the unwillingness to evolve whereas stupidity is the inability to evolve. Today technology is a key aspect in everyday living. It is a necessity…

    reader how a person’s intelligence, ingenuity, and work ethic are secondary to human evolution. Human evolution determines a person’s intelligence, ingenuity, and work ethic more than other factors. Albert Einstein said that,” The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” Einstein is correct in thinking this because one’s genetic code determines if they will be intelligent. The idea becomes prevalent as the narrator reunites with the artilleryman. The men reconvene, and the…

    great beings of high intellect to creatures that seem to have little to no aptitude. During the years that they grow up, most of these stupid people do not lose knowledge; they gain it. What is the reason for their degeneration into stupidity? Perhaps stupidity is not a lack of intelligence, as many believe. Maybe, it is the refusal to utilize one’s intelligence to the highest possible degree. Unwillingness to learn is unmistakably present in the life of a stupid person. Last week, I was…
