Teen pregnancy is an epidemic that has swept the nation for many years now. A quarter in all teen pregnancies result in abortion. According to abortion statistics there are three reasons for choosing abortion: "A baby would intervene in their daily lives like work, school, or other responsibilities. They could not afford a baby, and one half of women who get an abortion say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their partner. "(Guttmacher Institute).
Victims of domestic violence have higher suicidal and depression rates. 1 in 5 women have been raped in their lifetime in the United States. 19.3 million women in the United States have been stalked in their lifetime.7 “If we are to fight discrimination and injustice against women we must start from the home for if a woman cannot be safe in her own house then she cannot be expected to feel safe anywhere.” Aysha
The first two weeks where initial cell differentiation occurs and she does not realize she becomes pregnant, then out of fear of legal persecution she may turn to abortion. Although I typically am not one to point out such conflicting issues such as pro-life or pro-choice, this sort of issue brings up a moral point on alternatives for pregnant women in society. Also, if this was deemed to be illegal, then how far would this be allowed to go? Women over the age of forty for example, who choose to get pregnant, have a higher risk of genetic disorders such as Down Syndrome, which impairs a child both mentally and physically (Berger,2014). If the child then inherits a genetic disorder through a woman’s personal choice to have a child at an older age, should she be defamed as well?
Doris Gudino Professor Chounlamountry Political Science 1 27 July 2015 Pro-Choice Anyone? A woman has, undoubtedly, the freedom to procreate, but once a woman chooses to retreat from that freedom, a commotion arises. Abortion is a woman’s choice for many reasons. It’s her body, therefore, no one else can decide for said person. She may have family and or financial problems preventing her from being able to properly care for the child.
Babies Born Addicted to Illegal Drugs Mothers who use illegal drugs while pregnant increase the risk of the baby being born having health issues. Babies who are born addicted to drugs usually suffer from neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Babies that are born to mothers addicted to drugs do not have the choice to be clean. Mothers need to think about their unborn child, instead of being selfish and only thinking of themselves and their next “high.” Addiction is a powerful disease that affects one in every ten people in the United States. However, if people look at it from an outsider point of view, it not only affects the addict, but the addict’s family and friends.
Abortion is against many religions and is frowned upon by many people and takes innocent children’s life away. A lady told a story about a conversation her and her mother had because she was thinking about going through with an abortion. This is what the mother said; “Termination in my religion is a sin and will punish you after death unless you also die.” (Alison p.485)This shows how religious people see abortion and the way you should be treated if you go through with abortion. It says that if you take someone’s life away you should be punished for it and abortion is not any different from shooting someone at point-blank. Abortion takes a person’s life away and if it is okay to you then you should be punished.
Without treatment, she would not survive. The Department of Children and Family services had C.C. removed from her home and took temporary custody after missing multiple appointments to seek for other opinions. C.C. does not want the chemotherapy treatment, because she believes chemo is poison, believing that it will do harm to her body
Pro Life vs Pro Choice A teenage girl who had unprotected sex one time but now can’t ever get a decent education. A rape victim who sees her attacker every time she looks at her child. A widower who is alone without his wife because she died due to birth complications. These are just three circumstances that abortion can prevent. Some people may think that Pro Life vs Pro Choice means abortion vs no abortion.
In fact, Dabul and Russo contend that much of the stress experienced by women who get abortions may stem not from the procedure itself but from the simple fact that the pregnancy is unwanted.” Now that you know most women are less likely to have serious psychological trauma to getting an abortion. And the trauma that they do face does not stem from having an abortion but is rooted down deeper and is past the stage of
So I do not agree with Thomson because I do not agree with abortion except in some very especial circumstances. I believe as a human we have to save live. Abortion should to stop! Be killing innocent’s children. In order to find a reason to do abortion for example a single mother; I highly disagree with this excuse because those mothers’ knows about their situation, why do not prevent to get pregnant?
having an abortion can really scar women mentally and emotionally. When the woman has an abortion they are basically killing their own child. Do you think the mother can live with that? Many women just think that they can just have an abortion if they get pregnant, but some of them don 't think about how hard it is at the moment. Gary Bauer said “A 2009 poll found that of people who knew a woman who had had an abortion, 55 percent said her abortion was a negative experience, and only 33 percent a positive experience.” People can say that if the women is going to have an abortion, they must put careful thought into it before doing it.
