Abstract: 12 pages in length. Throughout history, there has not likely been a more fiery or controversial issue than that of abortion. Indeed, the ethics behind the act of aborting a fetus is what lies at the core of the ongoing debate between two very strong-willed and opinionated viewpoints. The ethical concerns that revolved around the abortion issue are those that encompass a great many ideals - both religious and personal - that have to do with an individual's concept of right and wrong. To some, the ethical implications mean allowing the woman her right to choose; to others, it is no different than murder. This paper will discuss the various ethical viewpoints surrounding the controversial issue of abortion. Bibliography lists 8 sources.
