Abortion

Abortion is a metaphysical question (meta – beyond; physics – the laws of science). Ultimately our beliefs will shape our morals because science cannot find for us any morally relevant feature of a foetus that distinctively marks the passage from a collection of cells to a human person. Indeed, the issue of personhood comes before any moral judgement on the ethics of abortion for most moral theories (Kantian, Natural Law), except for the utilitarians, who argue that goodness resides in some balance of pleasure over pain.
