I'm in need of some help. What do you think would be a good thesis statement for and essay on abortion pro-life? I have thought about this for at least an hour now, and can't come up with anything that is somewhat good....Ideas would be greatly appreciated :)

    A thesis statement is not usually what you come up with first. Follow the writing process, whether you're writing for science, history, English, or whatever:

    Prewriting: Brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement

    Writing: Write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write the introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.

    Polishing: Revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)

    Do you have a thesis yet? Have you done your brainstorming (and maybe research) yet? Have you written an outline?

    Surely, you have thought about this. No one here knows what you've been thinking, but if you'll write down what you think so far, I might be able to help you figure out what YOU want to say.

    Dear Mackenzie - a thesis statement is the begining of your paper. It sums up your entire argument. It also captures the reader's attention or loses it becasue it is the first thing they read. MAke your statement bold and grabbing. Back it up in your argument.
    If you are pro-life - which I wholeheartedly support - give a reason for being this way. if you want, hit your reader with a statistic - somethign about how many children a year are aborted or soemthing like that.Tell us WHY do you beleive what you do. An extreme - but in my opinion, true - thesis statement could be soemthing like : Many people around the world are now agreeing to legalize murder.

    Doesnt a line like that make you want to see what else the author has to say?

    Excellent, tabby.

    Thank you. I plan to go to college to major in journalism and get my bachelor's degree, possibly a master's.

    And Mackenzie, if I can put in another word - make sure you are passionate about your subject. A lack of enthusiasm in your topic not only makes your argument seem flat and apathetic to a reader, but it also makes it harder to write. Be sure you know where you stand on your subject and why.

    Thanks tabby. I really do know how to write an essay paper. I have done many before, and have got A's on them. I come from a family of writers, good writers. Thank you for your help once again. :) Also I'm sorry if i sound rude, i do not mean to at all.
