Abortions affect the reproductive organ making it possible that complications may arise later. There are multiple pieces of data pointing out the risks of giving birth to a baby with a serious complication or never giving birth at all are increased with abortions. There are studies suggesting that abortion can cause women to become infertile or even low birth weight and premature births in future children (“Abortion: Does it affect...”). Women’s rate of having a child born premature increases by 37% after their first abortion (Macrae). After having an abortion, the reproductive organ can have long-term to permanent damage which could cause complications in future pregnancies.
It is striking that complications from unsafe abortion are estimated to result in 13 per cent of maternal deaths worldwide.” The ban of abortion can put many women at risk. The suppression of these services is extremely unfair, and in many ways diminishing the rights of women. Women have been treated as inferior for many generations, with society pushing aside their ideas, allowing them to only act a certain “ladylike” way, and denying them certain, yet important rights. Oscar Wilde, a famous play writer once said “Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood.” Women want to be understood,
Few articles framed abortion as a positive and legitimate choice. Negative media representations of abortion contribute to the stigmatization of the procedure and of women who have it, and reflect a discrediting of women's reproductive decision making. Abortion is a subject which is continually contested in the worldwide media. The cases of women who challenged Ireland's restrictive abortion laws in the European Court of Human Rights in 2010; and the death in 2012 of Savita Halappanavar (from septicaemia after being denied an abortion) have maintained the presence of abortion rights in the Republic of Ireland in news reporting. The case of ‘Beatriz’, a Salvadoran woman denied an abortion despite an unviable pregnancy and significant risk to her life, garnered international media attention; as have increasing restrictions on access to abortion in the USA.
Women who are victims of rape will always be in remembrance of their terrifying experience, which sometimes result in neglect and unfair treatment of the child due to the woman’s rape trauma syndrome. Women who are not financially stable that are pregnant and oppose abortion live in poverty. If abortions were banned it would increase illegal abortions which have critical effect to the woman’s health. Statistics estimate that the risk of death from an abortion is 0.6 in 100,000. The risk of death childbirth is 14 times higher, 8.8 in 100,000.
The procedure of an abortion does more good for the mother and family than it prevents a life from occurring. The mother’s body should be respected, as it always should be. The mother’s life should always be put in priority. When rape is placed into the world of possibility behind pregnancy then a woman should always be helped during a traumatic event such as a rape. Even the idea of monetary struggles of families should be observed.
The Effects of Abortion on the Mother and Her Support Group Abortion is a universal subject that is talked about among many different denominations, races, and genders. Being aware of all the effects of abortion is important, especially when it may become a part of your life. Abortion has many problematic mental and physical effects on the mother and her support group. Abortion is open to all ages but for a minor, there must be parental consent. There are different forms of abortion such as induced, which is by a pill, or surgical where the baby is removed from the mother.
With the legalisation of abortion, I believe that women use abortion as a form of contraception. If I could put myself in the shoes of this pregnant mother who wants to have an illegal abortion, I will carry the baby to full term and then give the baby up for adoption. Since there are many women out there who cannot conceive but would like to have a baby. In my opinion, I am against the practices of all forms of abortion, because a foetus is considered as a human being and deserves moral recognition. Moral recognition begins at conception and by having an abortion robs the child of the potential that could have lived.
Those aborted babies did no get chances to grow up, to see the world or to experience all the good things and bad things. The supporters of abortion think that why should babies come into the world when no one wants them. Also, the right for abortion should not be limited by governments or affected by religions. Abortion should not be tolerated because it is not safe, it can lead to many consequences, and causes more and more bad sexual behaviors.
Many studies prove this claim that abortions are detrimental. After women have an abortion, they can be diagnosed with depression. Multiple studies have proven that women post-abortion are likely to have depression also with other mental issues. Many women have participated in studies that show more women will experience regret, depression, and anxiety. Another piece of evidence to support my claim is “Research published in The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry in January has shown that even women without past mental health problems are at risk of psychological ill-effects after abortion”(McDonagh).
