The two arguments are at both extremes. The argument of the anti-abortionists seems to be too broad, as the pro-choice principles are too narrow for acceptance. By both sides, coming to a consensus also tend to grave the difficulties further. The anti-abortionists will tend to rectify their argument by including the word “human being” (Marquis, 1989). Therefore, arguing that it is wrong to end the life of a human being. They support their notion by identifying that the fetuses fall under human being category.An argument arises that something only develops into a human being only after the process of development. Therefore, since the first-trimester fetuses and maybe all the fetuses have not yet developed into full characteristics to be human beings. Similarly, the pro-choice attempts to find the immorality of killing infants but makes abortion immoral They extends the explanation of a person to include infants and young children.Marquis brings us out of this dialectical quandary. He notes that the moral generalization of both sides does not appeal. He suggests that both arguments tend to be accidental generalizations, making moral claims out of the essence of the matter. His argument relies on an account concerning killing. He presents his case by identifying that killing any person, child, or adult is wrong.The brutalization of the act of killing does not explain its immorality. What make killing wrong is not on the effect of the murder or the victim’s relatives and friends. It lies entirely on the victim. The of loss of a person’s life is the most significant loss to the person. It deprives one of the enjoyments, the projects, activities and the. Abortion after the Rape.
