In fact, everyone is pro-life and everyone is pro-choice. Given the alternatives of abstinence, adoption, and having a baby, the emotional and physical risks are not worth taking. While some people label themselves as pro-choice, when we examine the environment that abortion takes place in, we find that it is a choice that takes place out of desperation. The meaning of a woman's right to choose is "notoriously vague" (Porter, 69). Abolishing abortion would result in more adoptions, mothers with reduced mental illness, and would lower the medical risk to pregnant women.There is never any valid argument for the ethics of abortion. The argument always centers on when conception begins and there is no way that anyone that can say when that takes place. We know that it is previous to birth. Is it in the eighth month The seventh No one can say for sure and no one can lay an arbitrary number to it. It requires that we, "move beyond the language of my rights and into the language of the sacred" (Zenya). There is no disagreement to the belief that abortion is undesirable. Just ask anyone that says they are pro-choice if they would prefer their daughter to have an abortion or practice abstinence. The overwhelming response would be to pursue a course that would not result in an unwanted pregnancy.The inability to determine when life begins leaves the woman who has had an abortion to face a lifetime of doubt and anxiety.
