Many women that get pregnant with an unwanted child usually look into having an abortion first rather than going through the long process of pregnancy and giving the baby up for adoption. Furthermore, “In President Obama 's speech… he suggested that one solution to lowering abortion rates is making abortion more available”(Joyce). Doctors, Nurses,
Whilst active, the “motherhood constellation” becomes the mother’s primary mindset, and supersedes all others (Stern, 1995). The complex is said to be developed during pregnancy and then remain available to mothers when they need access to this way of thinking (Stern, 1995). The constellation consists of four main themes that preoccupy the mother’s thoughts. The first theme is the life growth theme entailing thoughts of the mother’s ability to provide her infant with life and the sustenance it needs to grow. The second theme is the primary relatedness theme, which concerns cognitions about the emotional connection the mother develops with her infant.
In contras, each year in Indonesia, millions of women become pregnant unintentionally, and many choose to end their pregnancies, despite the fact that abortion is generally illegal. Abortion due to unwanted pregnancy is considered the best solution. Whereas it is the same as solving the problem with a new problem. Like many pregnant women by “accident” in many developing countries where abortion is stigmatized and highly restricted, Indonesian women often seek abortion with harm procedures performed by untrained providers (for example; dukun). Some women already know the negative impact of having an abortion but most women tend to ignore it.

This means is that when a baby is in the mother’s stomach it is in fact alive. Most “pro-choice” people say that the reason that they commit abortion is because the baby is not alive yet. They are wrong because according to factual information, the moment of the child being conceived he/she is alive. Going back to my first point that it is not only murder, but cruelty toward the innocent.
Experts have several reasons why they believe late-term abortion is an immoral practice. Don Marquis is an American author who is an expert in ethics and medical ethics.

She visited Planned Parenthood multiple times before making a final decision on whether she would terminate her pregnancy. I asked Gina what the biggest reason was for wanting to get an abortion was and she replied, “I was very young and felt unprepared to bring another life into this world when I didn’t feel my life had even started. Plus, I was living with my parents and working two part-time jobs, as was my boyfriend. We just weren’t ready at all.” Much like Gina’s scenario, many young men and women cannot afford primary health care, especially prenatal and postnatal care, so they go to Planned Parenthood where they are provided with affordable reproductive opportunities. When I asked Gina how she was treated at Planned Parenthood, she said, “It was scary at first going in there because I didn’t know what I wanted yet or how much it would cost or anything.
Roe vs. Wade first went through federal court, and then it was appealed to the Supreme Court. McCorvey believed Texas abortion law was unconstitutionally vague, and violated her right to privacy. She also wanted to obtain an injunction to prevent Wade from enforcing the law, but it was never issued (“Roe v. Wade” par. 2). McCorvey and her attorneys relied on precedents such as Griswold v. Connecticut and Eisenstadt v. Baird, as well as important constitutional amendments to win the
Connecticut is the landmark case that led to Roe v. Wade. The case argued that it was unconstitutional to outlaw contraceptives of any sort. “On June 7, 1965 the Supreme Court argued that the law which imposed criminal sanctions upon any person who uses any drug, medical article or instrument for the purpose of preventing conception is unconstitutional” (Roraback). Also, the Supreme Court declared that the Connecticut law was unconstitutional because it restricted contraceptive use by married couples and this violates their right to privacy (Fein). “The decision spawned additional vexing ligation seeking expansion of the right to privacy to include possession of obscene materials in the home, personal reputation, abortion, confidentiality regarding drug use, and homosexual sodomy” (Fein).

The issue only became illegal when “quickening” occurs. The term is used to describe when a mother feels the fetus moving. It was a religious belief that when conception first occurs and in the early stages of pregnancy human life did not exist yet. However, around the 1880’s, abortion became criminalized with the exception that it could be used to save a woman’s life. A ton of people went against abortions because they saw that since most of the decline in birth rates were from women that had Northern European backgrounds and believe that it was the destruction of the race.
Planned Parenthood has remained a controversial topic in government and in households throughout America. There are split views on whether it should be funded by government or not, not to mention the underlying moral dilemma when it comes to abortions. In essence, Planned Parenthood was funded $500,000 in 2014. Though they are not prohibited to use federal funding on abortions, but Planned Parenthood conducts around 300,000 abortions a year using other funding. Recently, an anti-abortion group conducted an undercover interview and discovered that Planned Parenthood uses fetal tissue for scientific research, which is against the law.
For laws regarding parental consent or knowledge about an abortion if the patient is a minor, twenty-one states require parental consent, twelve states require parental notification, and five states require both.
