dc.description.abstract This dissertation evaluates the concept of a third alternative surrounding abortion which focuses on making abortion rare by addressing contemporary arguments. This third alternative recognises abortion as morally problematic but contends that it should be both legal and rare. Its aim is to address the overly narrow focus of the usual debate on either just the foetus or just the maternal body. In doing this it evaluates some of the current contemporary arguments surrounding abortion to show how these arguments are simply not enough. This includes questioning the social and political dimensions of the dilemma of abortion, and in particular, questions about the conditions that should be in place that will help make abortion rare. This should show how the current debate has created a clear division which has done very little to help women who are considering an abortion. Therefore the argument of making abortion rare should be supported by both Pro-Life and Pro-Choice arguments because if abortion became rare, it would mean that not only would there be fewer abortions, which is exactly what Pro-Life is arguing for, but it would also mean that women would be given more options, which is what Pro-Choice is arguing for. en_US
