ABSTRACT
In this article, author discusses the concept of the moral acceptability of abortion as resolved by several philosophers. It mentions several moral questions related to abortions and their possible agreements including, moral realism, moral constructivism and utilitarianism. It also informs about the concepts of the book, "Theory of Justice," by John Rawls, which claims that all rational persons under the veil of ignorance in his original position will always give identical answers and suggests that plausibility of holding can be a better solution of every moral problem stems from a failure to consider the wide variety of moral problems.

    We argue that the Rawlsian social contract argument advanced for stakeholder theory by R. Edward Freeman, writing alone and with William M. Evan, fails in three main ways.
