Life is so important to God that he says anyone who murders should die. In the book of Exodus, God said whoever kills a baby should suffer the same fate. Also, God does not desire for his people to decrease those who are in his image. On the practical side of the pro-life argument, according to philosopher Erica Bachiochi, abortions harm women. There have been studies that show women who have had abortions have an increased rate of anxiety, depression and suicide rate.
Human rights, the choice of adoption, and Post Abortion Syndrome are three good examples on why abortion should be illegal. The unborn child deserves to have a chance at life just as much as any other human being. Whether the child grows up with the birth family or an adoptive family, the child is still experiencing life rather than death. Why have an abortion when in the end it could cause the mother more damage than happiness? Before having an abortion all women should consider the advantages, disadvantages, and possible side effects very carefully.
Having troubles during an abortion could lead to one have troubles later in life when they want to get pregnant. Dr. Geetha Venkat, the director of Harley Street Fertility Clinic, explains that if difficulties arise during your abortion, then it is more likely that you will have a harder time getting or even staying pregnant later (“How An Abortion Affects ...”). This is due to multiple problems that may arise in one’s abortion. A woman may either have a pelvic infection or scarring of the womb or Fallopian tube, which can make it hard for the egg to travel to the uterus (“Does a past termination...”). Abortions affect the reproductive organ making it possible that complications may arise later.
I propose my own ethical and political theory that the legalization of abortion itself is a political motive by the government to rid of their responsibilities to these potential mothers. To conclude, I focus on the importance of why it is important to consider these premises, as well as why it is also important to take a look at the other issues that have led to why a woman/girl would be considering an abortion, and why incest and rape is a reoccurring
Abortion is a controversial topic that has been shaped by a great deal of issues and debates that have been created. In today’s society, abortion may seem convenient and benefit millions of men and women, but they are abused by many who use them as a contraceptive. Regardless of these accessible benefits and feelings of empowerment by having reproductive rights, this promotes a throwaway culture, shows the amount of irresponsibility had with these men and women, and is the murder of a human life; nevertheless, abortions should still be available for women who get raped or if their baby will not survive but for a few hours after birth, or if the mother cannot physically have the child. Abortions have numerous harmful effects and should be regulated
Nancy could based her decision that she has already have an abortion and it would be morally irresponsible for her to have another. 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.
Today, abortion still one of the most controversial topics in our communities, some with the Idea that it's wrong (pro-life) and others that is totally okay that women should have control over their body (pro-choice). Even though, it became legal in 1973, there are a big amount of people opposing abortion as a moral wrong. In this paper I would like to talk about three different theories on abortion. First, the structural functionalist, second the conflict perspective theory and third the symbolic Interaction theory. A structural-functional approach that it should be possible for a pregnant woman to obtain a legal abortion in specific circumstances.
Impotence was both legal and moral grounds for divorce, and so midwives testified in the courts as a medical “expert”. Midwives also were called to court to prove the pregnancy of women in order to prove rape cases, and examined the health of a baby in-utero if it was possibly harmed, which was an extra charge in the courts for the offender. Midwives were also known to prove the virginity of a woman in rape cases, before certain marriages, and to prove a woman’s honor in special situations. The most notable case of this was in the case of Joan of Arc. Although midwives did not necessarily have the technical expertise of gynecology that a male doctor might have, they, once again, had more practical
Sanger was born into a large family of eleven children. Margaret spent her life creating some kind of method to help women manage the amount of children they wanted to have. Her mother died at an early age because of bearing too many children and having several miscarriages (The Pill). Many women suffered because of unwanted pregnancies. Some could not afford abortions, so they would go and get it done illegally, which was called, “five dollar back alley abortions” (The Pill).
Statistics prove that 93% of the people in the nation say that it should be okay. Doctor’s wouldn’t mind, but they mind because they have to abide by the law to keep their jobs. NIH.org tells you the harms of birth control as well as how it can help you. Birth control can cause weight gain or loss, slight nausea, can cause larger breast, mood swings, breast tenderness, and etc. With the mood swings it can cause you to go in a stage of depression.
In 2014, it was tallied that eighteen percent of all pregnancies are concluding in abortion. Pro-choice advocates give women a way out of facing conflict in the future by presenting abortions as glorious procedures. Although, after the procedure is complete many women feel have side effects such as: depression, bipolar-like mood swings, the feeling of something missing in her life. Many women see
The often religious Republicans usually favor a pro-life stance on this issue, meaning that they believe that the child is alive before they are out of the mother’s womb and to abort them should be tried like murder. Not all of those who are pro-life believe that an abortion could not be allowed very early on in the pregnancy. The Roe vs. Wade case decided that an abortion would be allowed in certain circumstances because of the right of privacy given in the Fourteenth Amendment. During the third trimester, the state could become more involved and would only allow an abortion if not doing so would endanger the woman’s health or life. The current ruling of Roe vs. Wade stands, although Trump wishes to contest the
While many people find abortion to be the quick and easy fix to an unwanted pregnancy, abortion has negative effects on both the baby, and society itself. I believe that the American public has been deceived into thinking that unborn babies are not considered human beings. Referring to unborn babies as "fetus," or "embryos," may be scientifically or politically correct, but it does not change the fact that these little ones are living beings and not blobs of tissue as so often described. A living human begins to exist at the moment of conception, even
These options are rather common, with the rate of abortion ¨around 85% for Down Syndrome¨ (Press 74). Abortion has long been an issue that has been debated surrounding medical ethics. With genetic testing leading to many parents choosing to terminate the pregnancy in the case of a ¨probable risk that a fetus carries a genetic disorder¨ (Rebouché and Rothenberg 988) it lends itself to believe that there is a direct connection between genetic testing and abortion. This is why genetic testing must be done only in necessary cases, to be able to protect the lives of unborn children that have
