Question: There is nothing immoral about abortion when it contributes to a womens well-being.
i need help to diagram the entire argument and discuss loopholes for EACH subargument.
There is nothing immoral about abortion when it contributes to a women’s well-being. Since consciousness is a function of brain structure and the brain structure of a fetus is akin to that of a nonhuman animal, it follows that a fetus’s consciousness is similar to that of a non animal. And since the value of an organism’s life depends upon the nature of its consciousness, the value of a fetus’s life is therefore similar to the value of the life of a nonhuman animal. Now that well-being of a fully conscious women is surely more valuable than the life of an animal as is amply demonstrated by the fact that we do no hesitate to kill animals if doing so contributes to our well-being. Accordingly the well-being of a women is of greater moral value than the life of a fetus. And obviously if the women’s well being is more valuable then the fetus’s life then there is nothing wrong with taking the fetus’s life for the sake of that well-being.
