This week we will continue to explore the ethics of abortion by examining some of the core issues in the “abortion debate” that continues to rage in our nation, and why such a topic remains decisively important in health care.
For this week’s Discussion Post, you are to read an article written by Don Marquis titled “Why Abortion is Immoral.” You can find this reading on pages 336 to 348 of our textbook. In this, Marquis argues that abortion is deeply immoral and problematic. This is not an easy read, so make sure you give yourself the time to really chew on the material.
After reading, write a general reflection discussing what you learned and what stood out to you. You are free to either agree or disagree with Marquis’ position, but you must directly reference his article in your response, and you are to show evidence that you’ve read the entire article.
