Spontaneous Abortion and Related Ethical Issues

Cite this

Spontaneous abortion is the non-prompted fetus or embryo demise or passage of ‘products of conception’ before twenty weeks of gestation. The condition can occur due to uncontrollable causes such as poor management of chronic health conditions and body issues affecting the mother (“Ontological status of the human embryo”, n.d.). On the other hand, induced abortion refers to the forced or (intentionally) triggered death of a fetus or embryo or passage of ‘products of conception’ before twenty weeks of expectancy. Induced abortion remains highly controlled in many nations worldwide due to the issue of life and the deterrence of actions leading to taking away human life (“Ontological status of the human embryo”, n.d.). However, America and several other European nations legalized induced abortion of pre-viable fetuses to protect the mother’s life and promote women’s general health. However, nations where abortion is not legalized treat induced abortion as actual murder chargeable by the law.
