SUBJECT BY SUBJECT OUTLINE Comparing two sides of an argument Thesis: People on both sides of the abortion debate feel passionately about their beliefs. I.PRO ABORTION/ PRO-CHOICE BELIEFS A.Women should have the right to safe and legal abortions 1.If abortions are outlawed, women will continue to have “back alley” abortions by unlicensed doctors, resulting in more health problems and deaths for women. 2.All people deserve medical care that allows them to be healthy and happy, both mentally and physically. B.The exact beginning of life is undetermined by most scientists. 1.The exact moment of life is unclear; therefore abortion should not be considered murder. 2.Some say that the “beginning of life” argument is not a valid argument anyway, since the embryo is dependant on the mother’s body for survival and therefore is not a viable life in its own right. C.Women have the right to privacy. 1.A woman should decide what happens to her own body. 2.Under the constitution we are guaranteed the right to privacy.
