Boss (2013) presents a very deep discussion of abortion and the argument for and against the subject. In her book, she has paid close attention to the details such as the history behind abortion, the US laws regarding abortion, what religion has to say about it, and how it poses a dilemma of morality. My understanding of the subject has been greatly enhanced due to which I will consider both perspectives on the subject including arguments in favor of abortion and those that are against it. Most women’s rights activists argue that women have a right to their own choice because it reflects gender equality and they are entitled to this moral right. They also argue that early pregnancy may halt their professional career and may push them towards several risks including crimes, illegal abortions, drugs, and hence a low standard of living. Women’s rights activists also stress the treatment of women as individuals rather than mere carriers of fetuses.
