Preparation Outline Abortion: Outlawing for the Benefits of Society and the Mother; By Megan Matal General Purpose : To inform the audience of the risks of abortion and why it is wrong Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to believe that abortion should be outlawed and why Thesis: Abortion, as a whole, is detrimental not only to society but also to the mother and even the unborn fetus and should therefore be outlawed. Introduction I. Hook : I want you all to close your eyes for a moment and imagine your back in your mothers’ womb. But, instead of being born, imagine being burned to dust, or pulled out limb by limb. Now open your eyes. I know this was very graphic and hard to hear. But I want to hear from you what you felt as you imagined this. [Ask a few for their feelings.] Now imagine being the mother of this unborn child. The feelings that you all imagined really occur when abortion occurs. II. Thesis : Abortion, as a whole, is not only detrimental to society; but also to the mother and even the unborn fetus and should therefore be outlawed. III. Preview : Abortion has become more and more of a debate as the years progress. But what’s the big deal you may ask. The “big deal” about abortion is a conglomeration of quite a few things.

Murder, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is “to kill a human being unlawfully and with premeditated malice”. c. Abortion, or the induced expulsion of a human fetus, is murder. [Cite Merriam-Webster.] i. Many doctors, including those who are pro-choice, have agreed on when a human life is actually considered to start. ii. In The Essentials of Human Embryology , it is stated that “Human development begins after the union of the male and female gametes or germ cells during a process known as fertilization.” iii. It is also shown in Medical Embryology that “the development of a human being begins with fertilization”.

d. As I stated above, scientists agree that human life is started at fertilization. In knowing this, then one can deduce that killing an unborn fetus is
