Studies show that more mothers a more likely to give up their baby if they have assurance that they will be able to see their child again or atlas see pictures rather than just hanging there baby off and never getting to see the baby again. Adoption now is a life long process and impacts everyone involved in a major way. Adoption has become a blessing to the world today in more ways then one. There are many couples that aren 't blessed with the luxury to have a child whenever they want. Most couples use to split after years of not being able to have a baby.
In the case of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruled that multiple U.S. amendments give Americans the right to privacy. Although the case ruled abortion a right for women, many states still implement rules and regulations that make a professionally administered abortion very hard, if not nearly impossible to obtain (Abortion). I believe that abortion should be legalized and made readily available all over the world. The easy availability of professional abortions reduces the rate of maternal death (Abortion).
The safety and well-being of the fetus and mother is at stake and too much time is wasted in the waiting room while the family tries to make a decision on whether or not they should let the doctors abort the fetus before it kills the mother. While some people jump to conclusions and slander late-term abortion, they fail to understand the reasoning and the mindset behind the women or family who choose to go down that path. Late term abortion is any method of abortion during the third trimester of the pregnancy, which is between 20 and 27 weeks just depending on where the information comes from. This is killing the fetus in viability, which is what causes so much controversy over whether it is ethical or not. Viability is a stage in the pregnancy,
Earlier in the text, Tisdale explains the reasons why women get abortions, “Women have abortions because they are too old, too young, too poor, and too rich, too stupid, and too smart” (Tisdale 382). As the quote suggests, there is conflicting reasons for abortions. Once again suggesting that abortion is a very complex topic, that must be looked at without such a black and white
A 2002 study published by the Southern Medical Journal found that women who had abortions were 154% more likely to commit suicide than women who carried to term (http://abortion.procon.org/). This statistic shows that abortion can be deadly for not only the unborn child, but the mother as well. Many women cannot handle what they have done, so they try to escape reality in the worst way. Thus, this shows that many women don’t understand the gravity of their situation until the child has been removed. Abortion is one of the most divisive issues in our world today, and almost everyone has an opinion about it.
After over one hundred years Margaret Sanger 's Legacy continues to spark conflict and controversy in the United States. Many consider Planned Parenthood a successful movement that has advocated for the rights a woman has over their own bodies. Others label these services that Planned Parenthood offers as unethical and completely immoral. Many progressive era issues that have been dealt with over time have been resolved, but as new reforms advocating women 's rights are proposed and demanded, questions regarding these more radical forms of contraception, like abortion are being questioned. The responses Sanger received from people were negative including the U.S. government, but through her determination and the will to fight for what she believed in Sanger was able to completely reverse the laws on birth control.
20 percent cite health reasons. 38 percent are young women either hiding pregnancies from their parents, or ordered by their parents to terminate their pregnancies (Head, Tom, Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice). Now there are times when the Catholic Church does allow abortions and that is on one condition. When the life of the mother is in danger, it is allowed because obviously you need parents to raise you.
For a woman to achieve this she would need to use contraceptives for around three decades (“Contraceptive Use in the United States.”). Even with the technology that has come about recently that gives women the ability to track ovulation, medical birth control is still needed. About 61 million women in the U.S are at the age for child bearing, but about 43 million of these women are at risk for unwanted pregnancy (“Contraceptive Use in the United States.”). This means that either they do not have the means to purchase birth control, their religious beliefs restrict them from acquiring contraceptives, or a multitude of other various reasons. Couples who do not use any form of contraceptives have about an eighty-five percent chance of becoming pregnant in a year.
Abortion is one of the most controversial topics discussed in our world today. Millions of fetuses never got a chance to be born because a mother chose to abort them. Although I do not believe in abortion, I believe a woman should have the right to decide whether to have a baby or not. Our textbook presents views and arguments on the issues. The article from our text on “A Defense of Abortion” written by Judith Jarvis Thomason states the right to have an abortion should be the pregnant woman’s decision.
Not everyones personal or financial situation is the same. While some women reaching out for abortion services my be meet with support, others may experience the opposite. In The Only Good Abortion is My Abortion, a well off married woman seeks out assistance because she is told by her doctor that she will eventually suffer a miscarriage due to a chromosomal abnormality of her fetus. Being well off, the woman has more options to choose a proper physical of her choice instead of a women women with little to no income who is in need of assistance. Race also plays into differing situations.
An HBO show host of “Real Time with Bill Maher”, Bill Maher says that a Texas Legislator has made abortion difficult to receive. Only 8 abortion clinics are open in Texas, and regulations for the clinics are ridiculous. Clinics must now have admitting privileges and ambulatory services; however, if you live somewhere in the West Texas area the nearest area to receive an abortion is 545 miles away (“Real Time with Bill Maher”). Women have already turned to abortion pills because of regulations on abortion. There are now at home remedies and pills, such as the Plan B One-Step pill, that women may turn to.
Debates between Pro-Choice and Pro-Life have been going on for decades. Since the beginning of human civilization the process of terminating a pregnancy has been practiced, by the mid 1800’s many people thought it to be murder and it should be stopped. By 1880 abortion had been banned in the United States through the process of protesting state legislatures. Even though abortions have been outlawed they still were being done illicitly and illegally. In the 19th century all surgical procedures, including abortion were very risky.
In today’s culture, a main topic of controversy is abortion. Abortion has been around since the late 1800s and has become more popular through the years. There are two sides that associate with abortion, pro-life and pro-choice. These two sides show women the reasons they should or should not have abortions. Because of abortions, the debate between the pro-choice and pro-life advocates has progressed in the sense of intensity and has affected many women in this generation.
There are mixed reviews about the choice of Planned Parenthood. They have eight million activists, supporters, and donors nationwide (Who We Are, 2014). However, some people still have an issue with how strongly Planned Parenthood support contraception, or abortion. They believe that every woman should have access to the full range reproductive health care services, including access to and legal abortions (Our Issues: Where We Stand, 2015). It will forever be a controversial issue within the views of abortions, but as a social worker, realistically, we have to accept the fact that abortions could be an option for the clients we are seeing.
Rape happens (pause), health issues occur (pause), and so do teen pregnancies(pause). Our bodies, our lives, our right to decide. Worldwide, 47,000 women die a year from unsafe abortions (pause). Anything from a simple herbal tea to a prescribed drug and occasionally even going to Mexico to have it done illegally.
