Abortion, Where Do We Agree?
For this essay, I wanted to write about how if everyone started conversations, especially political conversations, about where there is common ground or where everyone agrees on a topic these type of conversations would go better. I wrote my paper about abortion and I added what both sides thought and where they were coming from. I actually learned a lot about this project, I learned more about where both sides are coming from and why they thought. Before I started this project I actually didn't know exactly how abortions were performed when the fetus is more developed and from learning more about that I know where pro-life people are coming from. I would say the common ground between pro-life and pro-choice people would be that they both value human life, the difference is just where that starts and ends for both sides. For example, pro-life people value the fetus more than the woman that is carrying that unborn child. They think that life starts and conception and they believe that at that point it is someone else's body and a woman shouldn't be able to have that choice to terminate that pregnancy. On the other hand, the pro-choice people value the woman's life and believe that if she doesn't want to have a baby then she shouldn't have to. They value the choice of whether a woman wants to have a baby or not and just overall reproductive freedom. After this project, I learned a lot about both sides and I'm glad I got the chance to make a project about this so that I am more informed about this topic and am able to have a more detailed conversation about abortion.
