Thompson writes there are many people in this world who think that a fetus is a human being as soon as it is conceived, but that is not the case.
A fetus is not human until very late in the pregnancy and in the first few weeks it is only a biological entity that is amidst its developmental stage.
People who think it is bad say that the fetus is something alive, a human being who is partly formed and to do abortion is to kill it and commit murder.
The people who think it is ok say that it is not murder until and unless the child is born.
It can be very difficult to exactly state at which point the embryo becomes human being.
However, many people agree on the fact that the fetus takes up human form and becomes a human a long time before birth.People who think like this, such as the National Organization for Women, want abortion to remain legal and allowed as they think that everyone has a right to choose whether they want to keep the baby or kill it.I think it all comes down to realizing when exactly the act of abortion can become murder.But if it has already developed into a larger fetus, it can be considered as murder. For example if there is a complication in pregnancy and the mother can suffer because of the child, I think it is ok to do abortion.It is important to understand the various ideas that go behind abortion.They think it is the invasion of the rights of women.This group wants abortion to remain legal and accessible as they think that everyone has a right to choose whether they want to keep the baby or kill it.For this, many people think of the ideas about exactly when the human fetus becomes a human being.Many people, those who are pro-life and against abortion, consider the fetus as a human being, as a person from the moment that the cell is conceived.The right of an abortion for a mother should be left on her own decision as the mother knows best about her condition.She is going to be the 'host body' for the baby, even though her own, for nine months and according to Thompson, the mother should have the right to decide if she wants to foster and go through with the ordeal.
