Dehumanize: to deprive of human qualities, personality, or spirit; to treat someone as though he or she is not a human being (Merriam-Webster Dictionary). Abortion, or the premature ending of a pregnancy, serves as an ideal example of how our society dehumanizes children who never got the chance to stand up for themselves, let alone crawl for themselves. The easiest way to deprive of human qualities is to dismiss of human qualities. In abortion, it is not the removal of tissue or the withdrawal of an indistinct organic mass of material; in abortion, it is the death of a baby. Abortion dehumanizes life to the point of death; nothing can justify the death and dehumanization of a baby.
There are many reasons as to why I think that self induced abortions are unhealthy. One reason why I think that self induced abortions are harmful is because you can die from terminating your own pregnancy. A 1997 government funded record linkage study in Finland found that women who abort are approximately four times more likely to die in the following year compared to women who carry their pregnancies to term (Elliot Institute). Jennifer McKenna Morbelli is an example of this.
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?”
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. 47,000 women die each year from unsafe abortion. If we make abortion illegal, those numbers are going to just skyrocket. The reason I think abortion should be legal for rape victims and
A fetus is a life, it becomes a life the moment its heart beats. It is a life that did not ask to be brought to this world specially to be killed in the horrific way they do it. By destroying it the way they do. That is why when it comes to abortion, I am against
Abortion is the deliberate termination of a pregnancy. It is an ethical issue in today’s society that can be seen from two angles, morally right and morally wrong. The subject of abortion is likely to cause arguments as both sides of the argument have strong points. The main argumentative point that disagree with abortion is that it is wrong to kill innocent human beings as life begins at contraception, this means that a foetus is a human being which means killing it would be wrong, meaning that abortion is wrong.
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
Many women across the world debate whether using/taking birth control is right for them. Women can argue that birth control doesn 't do any good for them and that it is not effective at all. There are also women that can agree that birth control is very helpful and that it is useful for them when they need it the most. In the United States, almost 50% of all pregnancies are not planned every year. With those unwanted pregnancies about 32% end in abortion, and with the option of birth control many of those unwanted pregnancies can be prevented or it can may even be stopped.
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.
In 2011 a legislation passed in Texas made the access citizens have to abortion to be severely restricted. This new legislation made it so that women would feel ashamed and conflicted about a decision that they were otherwise certain about making. One of the results of this is that women must now listen to a detailed description of their ultrasound 24 hours before their scheduled abortion. Another effect since the implementation of this legislation is that many clinics had no choice but to close; twelve out of thirty four clinics in Texas closed in 2013, as they could not secure the proper hospital privileges that the legislation demanded. Texas has even reduced its funding towards family planning and completely removed Planned Parenthood, an organization well known for its pro-choice stance, from state funding (Grossman et al.).
States do this in order to protect the rights of the human being that is growing inside the woman, because they cannot fully protect it due to the national law. The two most popular laws on restriction of abortion are laws regarding when an abortion can be performed and laws requiring parental knowledge or consent if the individual requesting an abortion is a minor. Currently, forty-two of the fifty states have laws regarding the week at which a woman can have an abortion. Twenty-one of these states allow abortion up until “viability of the fetus” or the ability for the fetus to live outside of the womb (NationalJournal.com).
Roe filed a lawsuit on wade claiming that a Texas law was criminalizing majority of every abortion. During that time period abortion were really only considered if the pregnancy was considered life threatening to the mother. This court case still remains one of the most intensely debated cases making the House Bill 3994 stand out. With this bill come many different opinions with some highly though of voices claiming there thought on the bill. Some representatives think that the bill is covering all the loopholes and clarifying the rules for underage minors who wish to proceed with and abortion without the consent of parent or guardian but the consent of a judge while others are seeing the complication with constitutional rights and the right to privacy.
Originalists and minimalists continue to challenge the ruling of Roe v. Wade, even till present day. Minimalists believe that the court approached the issues of the case through a unnecessary approach. Besides granting abortion rights to women, the court also implemented a complex trimester system, which specified what is and what is not allowed during each three-month time interval of a pregnancy. The Texas law that was challenged in Roe v. Wade, was extreme to say the least. It banned the right to an abortion even in difficult situation where the pregnancy results from rape or incest, and pregnancies that would potentially lead to detrimental health concerns for both the mother- to be and the fetus.
A Catchy Title Bio 100-02 Various abortion practices have been circulating for thousands of years. Before our technological advancements in medicine and surgery, women had to resort to more dangerous means for wanted abortions. The various methods range from jumping from a high point and inducing a miscarriage by landing on the stomach to deliberately standing in the snow for long periods of time in attempt to contract hypothermia, which was believed to be fatal for the fetus; however, these methods today would be dubbed as “back-alley,” or illegal, abortions due to their risky nature. It was not until the 1880’s did medical practitioners even begin to perform surgical abortions; and even then, there was a high risk
When the counter arguments of Pro-Choice reasoning, Pro-Life viewpoint, is analyzed there are multiple logical fallacies and false statements which are used which make their argument less valid. Firstly, the Pro-Life advocates use the texas sharpshooter fallacy when making the point that abortions cause women to have greater physiological damage later on in life. They use statistics that specifically support their argument without addressing any other specifics: “A 2008 peer-reviewed study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Public Health found that "Young adult women who undergo... abortion may be at increased risk for subsequent depression"” (Pro & Con Arguments). This is very misleading data because there is also ‘data’ which shows that women who don’t get abortions have physiological and emotional damage: “A Sep. 2013 peer-reviewed study comparing the mental health of women who received abortions to women denied abortions found that women who were denied abortions "felt more regret and anger" and "less relief and happiness" than women who had abortions” (Pro & Con Arguments). Since data can be used for both sides of the argument it makes this point completely invalid.
