Assignment: Abortion Laws and Ethical Considerations

For social workers, the potential conflict between personal and professional ethics can be a source of great contention. Abortion is a highly politicized and contested topic. It is also one that reflects great diversity in terms of opinion, personal and professional ethics, and legal stances varying from state to state. For this Assignment, consider the topic of abortion, the laws of abortion that exist in the state or country in which you reside, and your own opinions on the topic. Also consider the relationship between your personal and professional ethical stance on the topic and how that may affect your interactions with clients.

By Day 7

Submit a 2- to 4-page paper that explains what you discovered about the laws of abortion in your state or country and why this information might be shared with clients. Further, explain your personal stance on abortion and how your ethical entanglements might impact your work with clients given the professional social worker ethic. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer.
