a)explain how belief in sanctity of life may influence ethical approach to abortion
1 -explain what sanctity of life is.-how God has power of giving and taking life and how divine life is.

3.1 personhood can start from conception. Those who believe this may disagree with abortion.

4.1 personhood is for those who have a conscious and are rational. A foetus does not have this therefore is not classed as a human.
4.1.1 a foetus could also be seen as a potential person as it has yet to go through the process of growing which would then lead to it gaining genetic make up which is another aspect of personhood and also survival of independence. therefore a foetus could be considered a person.
