There are many reasons to support this claim. If a woman is raped and gets pregnant she should not be forced to have the baby. This can be very emotionally difficult for the mother knowing how her child was conceived. Secondly, if it is against a woman’s morals or religious beliefs she should have a choice in whether she wants to keep the baby or not. Also, if the mother or baby has serious health issues, it is more important to save one life if you can instead of having two people die.

The aforementioned assumptions are reasonable in the context of my argument. The premises in this argument provide adequate support for my conclusion and will prove to be far more adequate once explained instead of just stated. This argument is non- deductive because it does not guarantee the conclusion but it states enough evidence that gives the conclusion a high degree of probability. Not every woman wants an abortion or believes she
