Pro-life vs

pro-choicePro-life All life is sacred and belongs to God (sanctity of life).Should defend vulnerable, foetus cannot defend itself.Purpose of humans is to preserve life.

Even if a foetus is born with disabilities, it is difficult to say what its quality of life would be.

Abortion is murder.

Everyone has a right to life and no-one should be allowed to take that right away.

Pro-choice

Women should have right to choose what happens to their body.

If woman’s life is at risk, she should be allowed to have an abortion.

If pregnancy is a result of rape or incest, going through with pregnancy would be too traumatic.

If foetus cannot survive outside of womb, it is not a life therefore abortion is not murder.

Some foetuses are so damaged, to allow them to be born would be cruel.

If abortions were made illegal, women would still have them but not in a safe way.Slide5
