Abort Abortion Studies have proven 86% of abortions performed in the United States occur due to convenience. The United States Federal Government recognizes the termination of an unborn child as legal, but gives the state governments the option to put regulations on the law if necessary. In Oklahoma abortion has many restrictions and is illegal. In the article “Should abortion be legal?”
However, less than 0.6% of all abortions reported in 2014 were because of rape or incest (Krason 284). However, there are cases where unplanned pregnancies are caused by rape. While rape is a terrible trauma and a morally reprehensible crime, which we can hardly begin to understand, there are alternatives to abortion in the pro-life movement such as counsel, healing, and compassion. In fact, “When women are given the correct counsel and healing, physcological studies have shown that pregnant rape victims progressively change their attitudes about their unborn child from something repulsive to someone who is innocent and worthwhile” (Krason 284). Contrary to popular belief, abortion does not alleviate the trauma of rape victims, it actually brings a trauma of its own.
Thesis: You do not have the right to tell a rape victim that she cannot get an abortion. Her rights were taking away from her when being raped, why should we now take her rights away from her free will. God gave us free will to make our own decisions. So why does the government think they have the right to take our rights away.
After reading this article, I have a greater understanding of why people who support a woman’s right to have an abortion are frustrated. If a state decides abortion is legal, then they need to support that decision and allow for easy access to abortion clinics. If a state votes against abortion, women from that state who are unhappy should move to another, pro-abortion, state. However, all that aside, I think “War on Women” is an inaccurate term for this article.
I think this article written by Douglas Johnson would make a great academic paper because I agree that abortion should be illegal in all fifty states and just because Johnson writes it in his article there are many more authors that claim the same thing and all the supporting evidence that is out there to prove that an unborn fetus can and does feel pain while still in gestation. After reading this article and the evidence provided I now believe that an unborn baby feels just as much pain as a baby that is
The first thing to consider is the health of the mom. To have a child can be difficult on the mother and it could possibly kill her. Carrying and delivering a baby can be very painful and dangerous to a woman. There can be many problems when a woman is giving birth. Actual labor is not the only concern for pregnant women.
Ever since the case of Roe v. Wade in 1973, abortion has been one of the biggest things to talk about; one of the ongoing issues of today’s society. In which there are mainly 2 sides to this… Pro-life and Pro-choice. Pro-Life meaning you’re against abortion and then there’s Pro-Choice in which people either don’t care or believe it SHOULD be legal. In which one side believes its murder, the other believes it helps life forms in an ironic kind of way.
Abortions are sad and unfortunate, but they will continue to happen, that is the reality of the world we live in. However, if we as a society release abortion from the stigma surrounding it, we will be able to begin finding a solution that won’t have to do with the law, it will have to do with being ready to help the women in these positions. Unsafe and illegal abortions are even more sad than legal and professional ones. To reduce abortions, we should be focused on contraceptives and sex education, not punishing those in this horrible
Adoption is a better choice than abortion because of all the babies wanted in infertile families. Abortion is killing an unborn baby by choice. Women carelessly get pregnant, most of the time, then stroll on into the abortion clinic to fix their “mistakes." Well instead of having careless sex, which leads to pregnancy, how about how not to have an abortion.
The incorrect action of abortion must be illegal. There are many other solutions besides abortion, abortion is murder, goes against God’s will, and lastly can result in medical complications for the women who go through with it. In 1857, Texas, and many other states in the United States of America made abortion illegal except when the mother’s life is endangered. Although, there were still many abortions taken place at the time.
Abortion should to stop! Be killing innocent’s children. In order to find a reason to do abortion for example a single mother; I highly disagree with this excuse because those mothers’ knows about their situation, why do not prevent to get pregnant? In this case I think those mothers’ are principal responsible to kill innocents children.
However this fuels the social attitude in which women must seek permission, when many consider abortion to be a right which all women should have access too. This poses the question of if limiting the rights of women is ever justifiable in the best interests of the baby, the roman catholic church argue that a foetus is a person from the moment of conception this means that they to are entitled to the same rights of the mother and to have an abortion is to murder a living being. From this perspective it is apparent that they argue it is justifiable to put the rights of the foetuses; despite this point when a foetus is though to gain rights is a key point to this argument. As personhood would determine when a foetus is able to gain rights, although critics would argue that even still this does not warrant them to have the same full rights that the mother would
Caitlynn Thomas Mrs. Simmons English 3 H 14 December 2015 Rough Draft Late-Term Abortion is Not Wrong or Unethical (too informal?) Late-term abortion has been a topic debated over generations and is still seen as a vital issue today. A majority of the population views late-term abortion as morally and legally wrong, which is mostly due to the manipulation of the government and media. The Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act signed by George Bush places the lives and health of women and fetuses in danger, as well as puts doctors at risk for providing safe care (Feldt). As this ban still stands, people listen to the majority of society rather than their personal thoughts on the topic.
As a representative for humanism at the United Nations, Brown claims that abortion should remain legal because with the banning of abortions women will use unsafe ways to have the procedure. According to Brown, “Nearly half of those abortions (20 million) are medically unsafe, resulting in the deaths of nearly 80,000 women a year and a much larger number suffering infection, injury, and trauma,” (Brown). Brown believes that making abortion illegal will not put an end to abortions, which is an honest statement. In general, Brown believes that if the government spent more money in programs that taught sex education and the practice of safe sex, then the amount of abortions would decrease. Raymond J. Adamek, a professor at Kent State University, feels that abortion should not be legal.
Knowing the statistics of what Planned Parenthood does and how many women and men use these services is important because of the misconceptions are present and prevalent in the minds of many. For example, most believe that abortion is all that Planned Parenthood does and that it is the most popular. However, as shown in the graph, abortion takes of 3% of all of Planned Parenthood’s services. In fact, Planned Parenthood performs STI/STD testing and treatment the most, with the next program being contraception. When the funding in places like Texas is lost, people go straight to abortion, when in fact, these men and women will be losing so much more than most realize.
