As abortion is one of the most controversial topics, there has been a lot of debate about it, whether people are opposing or defending abortion. There is one worldview that defends the idea of abortion, which is the secular worldview. The secular worldview is people who view things based on human logic, understanding, intuition and reason, and it is not adopted from spiritual teachings or religion. According to the secular worldview, abortion is right because of women’s right, fetus in the womb is not yet human, and rape or incest.
Firstly, this only applies to the less than one percent of cases where the woman is raped and thus forced to be pregnant. Secondly it equates unplugging to abortion because both are decisions that allow more freedom for the subject. The answer does not lie in the morality of unplugging because it is a false analogy. The difference is that unplugging is abstaining from care, and abortion is deliberately killing. And a pregnant woman cannot abstain from care.
A mother's choice to kill, is not part of the Good Lord's Will. Abortion should never be your first option when you get pregnant. Abortion should be illegal because it is a gift from God, abortion is unsafe, and you save a life if you don’t get an abortion. God gives you a gift when putting a life in your way and you shouldn’t destroy it even if the way he did it is hurtful. Thomas L. Friedman says, “he was against abortion even in the event of rape because after much thought he “came to realize that life is that gift from God.
A article in liveactionnews.com says, that even the highest known abortionists say that abortion is the act of murdering a baby. this is said by British abortionist Judith Arcana: “It is morally and ethically wrong to do abortions without acknowledging what it means to do them. I performed abortions, I have had an abortion and I am in favor of women having abortions when we choose to do so. But we should never disregard the fact that being pregnant means there is a baby growing inside of a woman, a baby whose life is ended. We ought not to pretend
Abortion is killing a fetus, a fetus is a person, all person has a right to life, killing someone with a right to life is always wrong. In Thompsons article, she portrays that this statement isn’t always true by making arguments in certain situations that abortion is okay. However, many might disagree with her arguments about abortion but, to which I see to be perfectly thought-out and, explained. A person is not morally bounded to do something for someone else such as to save their life.
Planned Parenthood, a clinic, will help to scale the cost so that a woman might be able to afford it. Another factor in the cost is where someone would get their surgical abortion, whether it is in a hospital or a clinic. Not only is abortion the wrong choice but it is also just very costly. There may be ways for a woman to make an abortion possible for herself, but that still does not mean she should get an
Abortion,which is defined as a deliberate termination of a human, is one of the most debatable issues in society. Abortion is about allowing women the right to make choices about when they want to have children, in relation to their age,health, financial stability or if they were raped. There are many reasons to why a woman might want to get an abortion and it should not be up to the Government to determine the personal right of what a woman wants to do with her own body, especially if that woman can not afford to care for the child. Moreover, this argument is a matter of morals, those who see it allowable should be provided with the means to do so but others who don't see it allowable don't have to choose to give up on a child. Those kids who are not aborted sometimes grow up in a destructive environment and their basic needs are not provided.
In fact, it is proven that babies can feel pain during an abortion. I believe abortions should be outlawed, as they are unethical for many reasons. One of the reasons abortion should be illegal is because human life does not start once a person is born, nor when the heart starts beating, but at conception. After conception, the baby grows and develops for about nine months, but this does not mean the baby is any less human than anyone else. In addition, it has been proved repeatedly that human life starts at conception.
“I cannot understand anti-abortion arguments that centre on the sanctity of life. As a species we've fairly comprehensively demonstrated that we don't believe in the sanctity of life. The shrugging acceptance of war, famine, epidemic, pain and life-long poverty shows us that, whatever we tell ourselves, we've made only the most feeble of efforts to really treat human life as sacred.” - Caitlin Moran Abortion does what contraception does not necessarily do: it works. Let the abortion be as it is, it is the mother’s body and she can abort it as she wishes.
This was especially true when he discussed the argument of contraception. Marquis took his argument of abortion to a level that was not relatable and too cumbersome. After all, not every sperm and every egg will become a fetus. In addition, if you are robbing an unborn child of its future then how would this matter if the fetus lacks awareness? When someone is alive and is murdered they are currently living and are on track for a future.
Another reason a woman may not want to go through a pregnancy is because people are cruel. Teens and young women especially get the bad end of the situation because it is not seen as ideal for young women or women who are not married to have a child. As for those who are pro life, they also have quite a debate as to why abortion should be illegal. The number one argument would be that abortion is the killing of a live fetus and that is murder (1).
It left them sick, made them unable to have anymore children and in some serious cases resulted in their deaths, and even after so much suffering many women remained pregnant. Yet, not only was it the controversial practice of abortions that Planned Parenthood was offering, but also contraceptives that ultimately eliminated a vast need for abortions as well. Their steady supplying of contraceptives and the organization’s goal to educate women about safe sex helped lower not only teen pregnancies but unwanted ones as
Savita Halappanavar is one of many women whose deaths could have been avoided had she been granted the abortion she so desperately needed and requested. Doctors told her that it was impossible for the fetus to survive, and that Savita’s own survival was questionable. Still, Savita was denied an abortion, and as a result, neither Savita nor her potential child survived the pregnancy. This happens to millions of women every year who are denied the right to be liberated from an unviable fetus. Discriminatory, raucous, tyrannical, all of these describe the disregard for the most basic of human rights: The right to control what happens to one’s own body.
You mentioned that mostly half of women of color received all the legal abortions. I just want to add some statistic that Davis explains on her article. During several years preceding the decriminalization of abortions in New York state, 80% of the illegal abortions were involved Black and Puerto Rican women. Also, just you said, immediately afterward, women of color received about 50% of the legal abortions. This is not because they have more freedom or reproductive rights than the white women, but it rather shows how miserable living and working condition they were in.
