|Title:||A Proposed Solution to the Problem of Abortion|
|Abstract:||<p>In this thesis we try to develop a sense of a solution to the abortion problem which afflicts millions every year. The solution lies in seeing that the fetus, in cases of forces pregnancy, may be aborted in order to allow a woman to retain control over her body. But all that the right of the woman consists in is the right to expel the fetus, not to kill it. According to us the fetus is a human person and may be killed only when the conditions that obtain for the killing of any other human person also obtain for the fetus. Otherwise the woman may not kill, though she may expel the fetus in cases of forced pregnancy. In cases of life-threatening pregnancy, the woman may abort to kill, as this would be a case of justified self-defensive killing.</p>|
