That would allow her to think that other women can still an abortion but not her. Another way, could be that Nancy could consider her motive for an abortion to be immoral. Nancy could be aware although not perfect, her fetus has the potential to have a healthy and happy life. In that aspect, Nancy could fall in the group of moderates who believe that abortion are only allowed under certain circumstances and for Nancy a fetus with Down Syndrome could simply not fall under those circumstances. Or Nancy could believe that her views are not absolute and could allow women to make up their minds about what is moral or
In the 1970’s, abortion became a worldwide issue. While some people wanted women to have a choice on whether to terminate their pregnancy or not, others believed it was murder to terminate a developing, unborn child. Although the debates have settled down, abortion is still a controversial topic. Abortion is taking the life from another human being and it should be illegal worldwide. Many people believe abortion should be legal because it is a part of women’s rights.
One of most comman reason why woman consider abortion are the inability to care or support for the children. Financial crisis and changing lifestyle making the situation more challenging. They say that having a baby would interpose with work and other responsibility. Some mothers also thought that having a baby will affect their lifestyle. They do not want to be a single parent at the young age.
If a girl under age conceives a baby i don't agree that abortion should be an option, for the simple fact the following measures should be taken to prevent pregnancy such as protection of condoms, birth control, or other preventions should have been used. When an under age girl decides to have sex she should be responsible from getting pregnant so that she shouldn't think of abortion as an option. As an adult a girl over 18 should also be responsible so that abortion is never an option, i don't believe the morning after pill should be used because preventable measures were not used before. I have been contemplating several scenarios in my head, but my decision is still firm that abortion should not be an option even if a woman is raped.
The birth mother of the child is happy because she does not have the burden of raising a child that she did not wish for and a couple, and their immediate family, receive happiness from a child that has now entered their life. In this scenario, questions like “what if no one ever adopt the child?” arises. It could be so, but a child can still have the potential of happiness in life through a life they were granted by the mother going through with the pregnancy. In this view, an abortion is not morally permissible because by not getting one it
Each state making their own regulations, making it harder and more confusing for women to receive the procedure if they desire one. In order to make it easier for women to understand and undergo an abortion, regulations should be the same nationwide. Furthermore, abortions are still being debated to this day if they should or shouldn’t be legal. With most arguments there are always two side, with abortions the sides are pro-life and pro-choice.
The indifferent group really has no opinion for or against polygamy. If a number of consenting adults want to enter a relationship and live this lifestyle that is their choice. This is most likely a lifestyle the average person would not commit to, but they also see no harm in it if it does not affect them personally. This group may even be a little curious on how the family runs the day to day operations, how each wife interacts with each other, or how it effects the children. Yet, some in this group do have a valid concern about the
Midwives were also known to turn a baby in-utero just before birth, a risky practice that greatly raises the chances of a successful birth, if it does not immediately harm the baby or kill the mother. Midwives also provided some comfort to birthing mothers. They had some herbal medicines that eased pain, like bark from aspen trees that makes what is known today as aspirin. However, many of these herbal drugs may have not actually relieved any pain or made birth any easier; many historians theorize that many remedies had a placebo effect on the mothers. Midwives also performed some rituals, cast spells, and engaged in ancient practices, like the use of a birthing girdle (later, these practices would contribute to the Church’s accusations of witchcraft towards midwives).
With that argument, how come women can't breastfeed with her body to care for her children? How come women are okay to sell their bodies and sometimes become too extreme for the public to see, but one cannot breastfeed for the welfare of her baby she loves and cares for? I would like to point out that all men and women are important but this issue is certainly taking the rights of women and mothers who gave birth to us and raised us at least some time in our lives. We need to help them be recognized again until they are not hurt or discriminated just because they don't fit to what ignorant or desirous young or old, and immature people stop having to spit out what they think to the woman who may be going through some hardship after giving birth. It is likely that women get depression after pregnancy and birth, it is common.
Sometimes it 's not even the women 's choice (pause), sometimes it will end in a life or death decision, and I 'm not just talking about the child dying (pause). In some cases, medical emergencies compel a woman to resort to it. 13% of women have health problems and having a child could kill them or permanently damage not only their health but it could cause the child major health issues (pause). People need to stop with the shaming of women that have abortions. It should be the women 's choice (pause).
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,
The ideal young Canadian woman raised in the twenty-first century is taught to feel empowered by her own drives and ambitions and to dismiss the traditional expectations created by previous societies. She learns that being educated guides her to success, and that the only validation she will ever need is from herself. But above all, she understands that sometimes sacrifices are necessary to achieve her full potential, especially when it regards her professional career. In reality, some women are reluctant to give up or reduce their career position upon starting a family, as giving up even a small fraction of it means giving up a portion of the product of their hard work.
Pro-life vs. pro-choice. Right to life vs. right to choose. Should abortion be legal? There are several circumstances which influence a woman’s decision to get an abortion. Whether she has the right to is the main problem.
Today I learned a lot from the presentations in class from some philosophers theories and my classmate's opinions on these theories. Utilitarianism was one of my favorites and this theory seemed to care for people the most and how they are affected by a situation. I favored this idea because it is very close to my very own personality because before I take a serious action I put a lot of thought into consideration before proposing a decision. I am very considerate of others feeling and I think about how will my actions make this person feel or will it affect others so I guess that is why I took the concept of utilitarianism very personal and found this very interesting.
