Should abortions be legl



Order Description
Argument Paper

For the Final Paper, you will identify a specific claim relative to one of the topics listed below and defend it with as strong an argument as possible. These topics are presented below as questions. The best way to develop a thesis statement is to offer an answer to the question, and then state in a clear and specific sentence the basis for your answer.
Should homosexuals be able to marry?
Is racism and anti-Semitism still a problem in the United States?
Is factory farming cruel to animals?
Is anthropogenic climate change (what used to be known as “global warming”) a problem that needs immediate and/or long term attention?
Should physician-assisted suicide be legal?
What, if any, limits should there be to embryonic stem cell research?
Should public workers be allowed to join unions and engage in collective bargaining?
Is the death penalty just and applied fairly?
Are there any legitimate restrictions on gun ownership?
Is it a problem if one percent of Americans possess 50% of American wealth and assets?
Should abortion be legal?
Should evolution be taught in the public schools?
Are science and religion in conflict?
Can one be moral and not believe in God?
Part One – Thesis
In this part of the paper, the thesis is to be stated clearly and specifically. It should appear no later than the end of the introduction paragraph.

Part Two – Argument
This part of the paper will present the argument for the thesis. The focus should be on identifying the strongest support for the thesis. Then, present that support by constructing an argument. This argument, or set of arguments, will probably employ both deductive and inductive reasoning.

Part Three – Counter-thesis and counter-argument
In this part of the paper, the strongest objection to the thesis is presented along with an argument (probably briefer than the argument in Part Two) for that thesis.

Part Four – Response to counter-thesis
In this part of the paper, you respond to and refute the counter-argument based on evidence discussed in Part Three. This response will draw on the earlier argument in Part Two to show that the original thesis can be defended against this objection.

The paper will be evaluated in terms of the grading rubric. The clearer your presentation of the debate and the more specific you can be in that presentation, the stronger the paper will be.

The Final Paper must be six to eight pages in length (not counting the cover page or reference list). You must use at least four resources, at least one of which must provide support for your thesis and at least one of which must provide support for your counter-thesis. Two of the four required resources must be found in the Ashford Online Library. The Final Paper must be formatted according to APA (6th edition) style, and all resources must be properly cited in text as well as on the reference page. If you would like to refer to APA samples and tutorials, log into the Ashford Writing Center (located in the Learning Resources tab in the left navigation bar). Click on the “APA & Research Guides” tab and review the resources.

Should abortions be legal
Horace Stokes
PHI103 Informal Logic

I. Should abortions be legal

A. Thesis Statement
Although abortions are illegal in majority of the United States, I think it should be legal in all 50 states. A lot of infants born in hospitals today do not go home with the mother due to abortions being illegal, causing the mother to give the infant up for adoption. If abortions were legal in the United States there would be less people on welfare.

II. History of abortion laws in the United States

A. Roe vs Wade
In 1973 Supreme Court made a landmark decision granting women the right to have abortions in the first three months, stating those rights belongs to the woman and her doctor, not the government.

B. Women rights
III. Current legal situation

A. Federal legislation-In 1995 and 2003, there have been several moves led by the Republican Party in the house of representative and senate to ban partial birth abortion, only to have it block by President Clinton and the Supreme Court.

B. State by state legal status

IV. Statistics
More than 50% of the women obtaining abortions in the United States are under the age of 25
A. Abortions ethnicity-abortion rates are more common among minority women.

B. Reasons for abortions

V. Public opinion-with some states becoming increasing polarized on abortion and law makers are passing tighter restrictions, while some are seeking stronger legal protection for it.

A. Gender, age, party, and region

B. Trimester of pregnancy

VI. Conclusion
While there are such different views on each side of the isles in regards to whether to ban or legalize abortions, there are states allowing and banning the procedure. I am an advocate for legalizing the procedure. I feel a woman should be able to make this life changing decision alone without anyone consent but hers. On the flip side of it, if my wife wanted to have the procedure I would be totally against it, which makes me a hypocrite.
