It is a universally accepted fact in all civilised countries that every human being has a right to life. That is why by the fifth amendment the Irish people abolished the Death Penalty. Soon you will be asked to grant permission for the State to legislate to allow for the termination of a pregnancy (abortion), to end the life of an unborn child. ”On Demand”.
The Pro Choice Argument;
Supporters of abortion claim the “woman’s right to choose”, and point to the ease with which abortion is available throughout the rest of the western world. Those who are in favour of abortion often cite the example of “rape” as a justification for abortion. Many others cite the case of Feotal abnormalities as a justification for abortion “On Demand”, Others simply say they want to end an unplanned (accidental) pregnancy
The Pro Life Argument;
Many objectors to abortion, fear and point out that abortion could become a form of belated birth control, and claim the “right to life” of the unborn child. They fear a decline in moral standards is leading to a lack of respect for human life, and devaluation of women whom many fear are becoming mere objects for men’s sexual gratification.

Replace the Eight amendment with a simple statement
