is judith thomsons analogy successfull in proving abortion in rape is right?

Write an essay on one of the following:

Is Judith Thomsons violinist analogy successful in proving that abortion is not wrong in the case of rape.

Each paper is to be approximately 750 words. Each paper should contain an introduction which defines key terms and provides a clear thesis statement; a paragraph where one presents an argument for one’s thesis; a paragraph where one raises an objection to one’s argument; a paragraph where one explains why that objection fails; and a brief conclusion

The Book is called Debating Health Care Ethics By Doran Smolkin i believe the topic i choose is from pages is 196-201. So let me know if you get a hold of that.

I will also be attaching what i have so far so you can add to that. I have one page of work

I will be arguing that Judith Thomson’s analogy in proving that abortion can be right in cases of rape will work.

1) The case of the baby is similar to a case of rape where we assume the fetus is a person
2) In the case of the baby it is morally permissible to disconnect
3)Therefore in the case of rape it is morally permissible to abort the fetus.
Some would agree with this argument while others would disagree with this argument. In my case I do agree with the
argument since the person is being used as a mere thing rather than a person.
In Judith Thomsons theory he tells us that the pregnant woman needs to carry an innocent child’s kidney’s with
her for 9 months. If she does so then she protects an innocent person’s live and she is free to leave after that
period and they are both happy, so therefore it may be in the best interest for the pregnant woman to stay connected to
the child . However when it comes to the case of rape, I believe it can be morally permissible to disconnect since this
is a matter of unauthorized consent between the two and there are more burdens of care after the child is born. Also it
will be difficult for the woman considering its her own child and she will have to take care of it, when she was not
ready for it or she may be the only parent that is the baby’s life support.

The objection to my argument is in the case of a medical doctor. The medical doctor has a duty to save other peoples
lives and in the case of a person who wants to disconnect, the medical doctor may refuse to let them, since its a matter
of life and death. The medical doctor would rather have both the baby and mother safe rather than just one person.
Therefore even though it would be considered wrong to disconnect in the eyes of the doctors even though it is considered
a rape case.

so thats what i wrote so far. The teacher said to make the thesis and introduction straight to the point. So not writing
abortion is mentally challenging for some. He said to state the thesis then state in standard form and explain why some
would disagree with premise 1

I will be arguing that Judith Thomson’s analogy in proving that abortion

can be right in cases of rape will work.

1) The case of the baby is similar to a case of rape where we assume the

fetus is a person

2) In the case of the baby it is morally permissible to disconnect

3)Therefore in the case of rape it is morally permissible to abort the

fetus.

Some would agree with this argument while others would disagree with this

argument. In my case I do agree with the argument since the person is being

used as a mere thing rather than a person.

In Judith Thomsons theory he tells us that the pregnant woman needs to

carry an innocent childs kidney’s with her for 9 months. If she does so

then she protects an innocent person’s live and she is free to leave

after that period and they are both happy, so therefore it may be in the

best interest for the pregnant woman to stay connected to the child .

However when it comes to the case of rape, I believe it can be morally

permissible to disconnect since this is a matter of unauthorized consent

between the two and there are more burdens of care after the child is born.

Also it will be difficult for the woman considering its her own child and

she will have to take care of it, when she was not ready for it or she may

be the only parent that is the baby’s life support.

 

The objection to my argument is in the case of a medical doctor. The

medical doctor has a duty to save other peoples lives and in the case of a

person who wants to disconnect, the medical doctor may refuse to let them,

since its a matter of life and death. The medical doctor would rather have

both the baby and mother safe rather than just one person. Therefore even

though it would be considered wrong to disconnect in the eyes of the

doctors even though it is considered a rape case.

 

so thats what i wrote so far. The teacher said to make the thesis and

introduction straight to the point. So not writing abortion is mentally

challenging for some. He said to state the thesis then state in standard

form and explain why some would disagree with premise 1

 

This is the additional info i had to send to the writer. Could you please forward it to them.
