Because I don’t care about me.” She’s saying she will do the procedure, just like the man asked her to (Hemingway 477). This decision feels one sided, because Jig did not get to think for herself, and said that so the man would be happy and the tension would go away. Jig is tired of talking about this, as she asks the man “would you please please please please please please please stop talking?” Indicating that she is tired of talking about the abortion (Hemingway 478). When the American tells Jig they can “have everything” she keeps shooting down his statements, and seems more level-headed and in control of herself than she was when the conversation began. This could suggest that when she says “I feel fine” at the end of the story, she really means it.
The narrative styles of “Shooting an Elephant” and “Why My Mother Can’t Speak English” are quite different from each other. Orwell tells the story in the first person. Through the whole story, it is what “I” see, feel and think that promote the plot development. In contrast, Engkent narrates the story using dialogues between him and his mother. The readers are just like the audiences of his mother and gradually reveal the reason that why his mother can’t speak English.
In top of all she is not sure about going through with the procedure. “The American” wants Jig to go through the procedure. He feels like if she goes through with the abortion, things will go back to what the used to be. She doesn’t feel that way; she knows things will not be exactly like they were before. Jig knows that if she goes through with the abortion they would have made the decision that they don’t want a family.
story and after looking at all the other text it appears that it is her telling the reader her decision on the abortion in a subtle way. In “Hills like White Elephants” Hemingway uses his method of iceberg theory. There is more to the story than first appears and one of the hidden depths of the story is the major conflict between the characters. The conversations held between the American and Jig, the setting, and the images help make it clear to the reader that the characters have to different views about abortion. All of those aspects of the story make it clear how each character feels and the conflicts that come with the idea of abortion.
“They base this argument on the fact that they consider the fetus as human; therefore, killing potential people not only is it wrong but also illegal. In addition, there is the argument on fetal rights; that is, since the fetus is a potential human then human rights apply.” (Karakoulaki, M., 2012) Not only do these individuals who advocate for pro-life believe that abortion is murder, but they also believe that the act of terminating a pregnancy puts the prospective mother in danger of health issues. “Connecting abortion with psychological illnesses and even breast cancer; arguments that that have no scientific base.” (Karakoulaki, M., 2012) Many go as far as claiming that abortion is an act against the feminism moment, as by terminating a pregnancy you are potentially murdering a soon to be
Abortion dehumanizes life to the point of death; nothing can justify the death and dehumanization of a baby. Today, pro-choice individuals try to justify abortion as a woman’s right to control her own body. However, this reason is self-centered and ignores the fact that the life in the woman’s womb is human in nature. This reasoning also puts the woman’s personal interests and comforts above the value of the life of the baby.
To them an abortion is taking someone’s life and possibly committing a sin. Liberals are the complete opposite they believe that women have the right to decide over their own bodies, and that a fetus is not yet a human life. Therefore, I do not support abortion. My believe is that abortion is taking someone’s life who didn 't ask to be created. In that way, I guess you can say that
Abortion should be illegal after one month of being pregnant. The number one cause for people getting an abortion is because it isn’t the right time, that to me is stupid because they knew that there was a chance that getting pregnant could happen. If a girl got raped I understand her wanting to get an abortion, but as Frank Pavon said in his article, “Rape and Abortion”, “Will and abortion help her? First of all the abortion will not un-rape the woman. The tragedy has happened and nothing can change the past.
Parental consent for abortion has been a widely debated topic ever since abortion was made legal over four decades ago. Parental consent should not be needed in order for a minor to receive an abortion. Putting up additional legal barriers to make abortion even more inaccessible just prompts these young women to seek out dangerous alternatives, such as self induced abortion. It has been medically proven that safe, legal abortion is much safer for most teen girls rather than childbirth. Overall, making abortion harder to access for women would force babies upon unprepared teens, possibly ruining their futures and perpetuating a cycle of poverty.
The termination of an unborn child should not be legally practiced in the United States. Abortion affects the child that is being terminated, but can also disturb the mother or other family members. The mother 's emotional state could take a toll if she starts feeling remorse or regret after the procedure is performed. Many studies prove women who terminate their child are more likely
An additional argument for these ultrasound laws that AUL puts forward is that “women will feel bonded to their children after seeing them on the ultrasound screen” and once that bond is formed “a woman no longer feels ambivalent toward her pregnancy and actually begins to feel invested in her unborn child” (AUL, 2013, p.3). The abortion-rights counter argument comes from organizations like the Guttmacher Institute that claims that these ultrasound laws are a “perversion of medical ethics in general and the informed consent process in particular” and they will not have a substantial impact on reducing abortion rates as viewing the ultrasound will not persuade the woman to forego the abortion (Benson Gold, 2009). Other abortion advocates and providers argue that viewing an ultrasound might cause psychological harm to the woman seeking the abortion and they would like to protect the women from such pain (Graham, Ankrett, & Killick,
Abortion takes a person’s life away and if it is okay to you then you should be punished. Some people believe it is okay if a woman has an abortion and that what a woman does to her body is not any else 's business, but by having an abortion the woman would not only be harming her own body but also taking an innocent life away. Bernie Sanders said that we are not going to go back to the
This is the first move that Yu-I ever makes against Hsu Chih-mo, showing the beginnings of Yu-I progression with thoughts. While Hsu Chih-mo wants to become more modern by having Yu-i get an abortion, in the end it is Yu-I that becomes more modern by disobeying her husband. Shortly after Hsu Chih-mo requests an abortion, Hsu Chih-mo disappears and leaves Yu-i. This is a big turning point for Yu-I because it makes her realize that Hsu Chih-mo does not care for her. During this time Yu-I analyzed the situation and figured out on her own what to do.
Marta Rodriguez is a victim of rape and impregnate by Roberto Ramos. Marta wants to get an abortion because she does not want to have the child. She tells Candelario and Chayo, “It’s right because Roberto did this when I did not want it.” (Benitez, 8). Candelario suggest that he will take care of the child, since he and Chayo did not have any children. Candelario 's offering make Marta decide to keep the baby.
Abortion is describes as a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus. In today’s society, abortion is seen in one of two ways. Abortion is described positive towards women’s right, when believed that pregnant women should have the right to choose whether they want to have an abortion or not. However, abortion is also viewed negatively with pro-life activist who stand against abortions and believe a fetus should have the right to live regardless of the mothers situation. There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to abortion, making it a controversial topic in society.
