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?” by procon.org it states abortions do not only affect the child, but also the mother that carried the child, induced abortion is the killing of another person, and women should accept the responsibilities of caring for a child. The termination of an unborn child should not be legally practiced in the United States.
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. Logos: The reason I believe rape victims should be allowed abortion is because it can help them put there assault behind them so they can recover more quickly and avoid the additional trauma of having to give birth to a rapist baby.
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. It seems to me it would be more accurate to say “The War on Babies.” After all, the mother will not lose her life from an abortion, but her child will.
Some opposed medical authorities state that a fetus can’t feel pain until 29 weeks or later and that they have performed many late abortions, even though they state this there are no facts disclosed in their stories. 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
While an abortion can bring stress a woman should still be given the choice. 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.
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. In between the years of 1973 and 2010, 421 women have died due to abortions.
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. One way to prevent pregnancy is some sort birth control.
There have been 43 unborn babies who have lost their lives ever since Roe v. Wade(O’Bannon) and this number should be nowhere near where it is at. 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.
