Getting an abortion could cause someone to feel grief, guilt, hurt, and just all around sad. The only good emotion a woman might feel after an abortion is a little bit of relief. Abortions are also very costly. Many women that want to get an abortion probably do not realize just how expensive they can be. Although there are still ways for her to get one that does not mean that she should.
The news of an unwanted pregnancy may be accompanied by a wave of emotions that can leave these women feeling overwhelmed and at a loss of how to cope, especially if they decide on an abortion. The first step women who suspect they are pregnant should take is scheduling an appointment with a gynecologist to confirm the pregnancy. While many rely on pharmaceutical test kits to check for pregnancy, this can sometimes lead to a false alarm. Rather than jumping the gun on unreliable results, visiting a gynaecologist to get an Ultrasound scan will be more ideal
Wade gave women had the legal right to get an abortion in the early stages of pregnancy which is up to the third trimester. It is a woman’s legal right to choose abortion especially in the cases of rape, incest, or health issues threatening the life of the mother. In 1992, in the case of Planned Parenthood v. Casey the states were granted the right to set restrictions on women’s access to abortion. Many individuals forget that there are two victims in abortion being the mother and child. In the cases where the pregnancy was unintended, abortion is considered by many to be an accessible procedure to subdue the existing life being carried by the mother.
Some women already know the negative impact of having an abortion but most women tend to ignore it. Argument 1 Psychological responses to abortion should also be considered because every woman has a different coping mechanism. Stress associated with abortion is acute stress, typically ending after the procedure. However, the stress may
Also, people who are pro-life believe that abortion can give the mother future medical and stress problems. Since abortions are proven to give the mother a higher chance of ectopic pregnancy, miscarriages, and pelvic inflammatory disease, many people are using this in their arguments against abortion. Also, they believe that abortion can, and most likely will cause intense psychological pain and stress. Many also believe that the stress in mothers can also lead to depression, which can then lead to injuring themselves or even committing suicide. Another argument that the pro-life community has is that victims of rape and incest can get medical care and treatment to ensure that there will be no pregnancy.
This debate has been around for decades, but protesters need to realize that Planned Parenthood is a lot more than just abortions. As a woman, I believe the general public and policy makers need to educate themselves on the numerous services that Planned
Many things can put the pregnancy in to the high risk category, including high blood pressure (6-8% of pregnant women), preeclampsia (3-5% of pregnant women), multiple births (steadily increases with increase in fertility treatments), gestational diabetes (2-10% of pregnant women and age (over 40) (nih.gov, 2017). While scare tactics should not be used, giving parents a false sense of safety shouldn’t be done either. An ethical midwife or physician should listen to parents concerns and wishes and advise accordingly. As parents we are responsible for the health and well being of our children and making the choice of where to give birth is one of the first decisions that we make. Personally, I chose to give birth in a hospital, as I was not comfortable with even a slight increase in risk to my daughters and myself.
An abortion should never be an option in any case because it’s considered as murder, it causes pain to the person and baby during and after the procedure, and there are other choices to choose from including adoption. Instead of having an abortion, women can choose a more beneficial option, such as giving the baby up for adoption. When women decide to get an abortion, they don’t think about adoption because of the long process, even though it can help other families who can’t have children. For example “It’s logical that anti-abortion organizations seeking to prevent abortions and promote traditional family structures would aggressively promote adoption, but this connection is often overlooked…”(Joyce). 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.
It is so easy to help in this just cause. Just your being there can make the difference in a young woman’s choice for whether her baby lives, or dies. Most women who consider abortion, do so as a last resort, or even against their will. When they show up at the clinic, they are very unsure, and need guidance. Imagine being in her position, then seeing large numbers of protesters gathered outside for such a just cause.
Say for instance they chose to keep the child and did not consider the amount of money necessary for properly raising a child. This is especially bad if the family has two hard working parents on either side. Then one of the two would go into a job of some sort while the other is left at home taking care of the child. But it can also be taken from the other side if they had chosen for the abortion and did not wish to involve their parents with the decision. They would then be stuck looking up online which states do allow abortions to children under the age of eighteen without parental consent if not already in one at which point they would then also need to figure out how to get enough money (price can range anywhere between zero to three-thousand dollars).
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
They also injected poisons and toxins such as bleach into their bodies which caused most women organ failure and/or death, and if they survived they were disfigured or were in pain from permanent injuries. In the 1940’s there was a crack down on abortions forcing them to go underground to have abortions underground which was the cause of a new era. In the 1960’s there was more and more abortion deaths from attempting to kill the baby but instead failed and killed themselves on accident. There were also multiple cases of women that got an abortion and were to scared to tell anyone what had
Often woman without the means or money to have legal abortions would go to dangerous lengths to rid themselves of the fetus, a majority of these procedures they underwent were life threatening. 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
If a woman or a child decides to no longer be pregnant, abortion is a popular way to terminate a pregnancy. There can be many health issues that may occur in some women that will cause them sickness throughout the pregnancy
