According to the WHO, there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions every year around the globe. The dictionary definition for abortion is ‘the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy’, and people usually very absolutist about their stances regarding this topic. The two sides of the argument are those who are pro-choice or pro-life. The pro-choice side argue that it is the free will of the parent/s to decide on how to handle the pregnancy as unplanned pregnancies could mean a detrimental life for both the parent/s and the baby as the parent/s may not have the resources to support and take care of the baby, or are not ready for such big change and responsibility. On the other hand, the pro-life side argue that life begins at conception

Thesis Statement: Abortion has been a major topic throughout the years, there has been much debate between pro-choice and pro-life but if people can come together to reach comprises it could help society make positive progress.
Abortion is not only a fluctuating concept in our society, but an ethical and emotional debate, as well. The image I have chosen presents concepts from a cultural and historical background, as well as presents an ethical, emotional, and logical appeal to the audience.
Abortion is one of the most controversial topics of all times. There are two types of abortion, Spontaneous which takes place naturally and induced which this essay will mainly present. Induced abortion is defined by the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. I believe that abortion should be legalised and accepted in all countries for different reasons such as; it 's cruel for raped women to go through with pregnancy, The mother has the right to choose for herself as it is her body not anyone else’s, a young girl is not ready for the responsibilities of womanhood and finally the health of the woman is more important.
How would you feel if someone wanted take your life? Imagine the feeling of having a mother that does not want you even before you are born. In 1821 Connecticut was the first state to pass the abortion law in the United States. Out of all pregnancies 4 in 10 babies are aborted. There are roughly 57 million unborn children that are killed in the U.S. alone. That is about 155 babies per hour and around 1 every 24 seconds. Some may disagree, but abortion is wrong for these reasons it is murder and murder is illegal, years after the abortion they will regret having the abortion and the woman may end up psychologically harmed.
Abortion is the ending of pregnancy by abolishing a fetus or embryo before it can survive outside the uterus. Abortion is a very controversial topic, for example, one side of this topic believes abortion is cruel and committing murder, while the other side believes that since the fetus or embryo isn 't developed enough to be considered a living human being yet, that abortion is not commiting murder. Despite this information, there is a lot more to abortion than the opinion of it being “right” or “wrong”.
Abortion is in fact the ending of pregnancy before birth and refers to the destruction of the embryo or foetus prior to life by removing the fetus in the uterus. An abortion can be either occurs naturally, that is due to an accident, disease, trauma or genetic incompatibility of the mother and foetus. Or, it can occur artificially, that is the foetus is removed by medical means or in the backstreet by unqualified people known as charlatans. Such risky abortions often result in septicaemia. Abortion is a major problem affecting most couples especially when contraceptives are ineffective. Abortion is accepted in many countries such as Indian and China but illegal in others countries. There is a huge debate all around the world whether to legalize abortion or not.
Abortion is one of the most controversial topics discussed in our world today. Millions of fetuses never got a chance to be born because a mother chose to abort them. Although I do not believe in abortion, I believe a woman should have the right to decide whether to have a baby or not. Our textbook presents views and arguments on the issues.
“In the year 2004, there were approximately 1.37 million abortions performed in the United States” (Chew 143). Since 1973 and even before, abortion has raged into a hot-topic issue among the press, politicians, and even doctors; among many other people. This topic has been disputed since even before the late Nineteenth Century. During the 1940s, it even became a social norm to raid the abortionists’ offices. From that time on, the abortion debate has been brought into light many times. Abortion is a never-ending controversial topic, that is why it is important to examine the definition of a fetus, pro-life arguments, and pro-choice arguments.
Birth control is highly effective, Oral contraception is 91-99% effective, (multiple sources say it varies depending on how well the user is using it, but general consensus that it is in this range of numbers) condoms are also highly effective as they are able to prevent 98% of pregnancies. This makes it extremely hard to have an unwanted baby unless something special happens. If you manage to impregnate a girl unintentionally without using these methods then you only have yourself to blame. Abortions create another safety net for this for people who are reckless. It’s a cycle, a man sleeps around (or woman), gets impregnated and then gets abortions because they don’t feel like using birth control. If people don’t live up to their consequences and stop, then they will most likely never stop. Also to note, birth control methods are fairly inexpensive too. Pills on average cost 15$-30$ per month and condoms normally cost about 1$ each or in some places 50 cents. If you can’t afford this then maybe sex should be the last thing on your
The debate whether abortion is morally permissible or not permissible is commonly discussed between the considerations of the status of a fetus and ones virtue theory. A widely recognized theory of pro-choice advocates can be thought to be that their ethical view is that fetus’s merely are not humans because they lack the right to life since they believe a fetus does not obtain any sort of mental functions or capability of feelings. Although this may be true in some cases it is not in all so explaining the wrongness of killing, between the common debates whether a fetus does or does not obtain human hood, should be illustrated in a way of a virtuous theory. The wrongness of killing is explained by what the person or fetus is deprived of, such as their right to life; not by means of a heart beat or function of one’s body, but by the fact that it takes their ability of potentially growing into a person to have the same human characteristics as we do.
We all know, sometimes mistakes happen . I would say that's what happens when you have sex before marriage. In the society we live in, we all view things differently. One’s opinion is not everyone else’s. Some believe that abusive men will often try to get their partners pregnant to keep them from ending the violent relationship. I believe that women should wait until marriage to have sexual intercourse with their partner. Abortion is immoral, because it is the intentional killing of a human being. And the life of the victim or the mother is filled with guilt and self pity.There are many people that are willing to take or to adopt children, people that can't have nchildren of their own. Abortion is a very complex and emotional thing to go through, it is another name for murder, it is against everything that the church stands for. Abortion is the deliberate killing of the weakest and the most defenseless among us. No one has the right to take the life of another person, even an unborn child. Abortion usually ends up hurting the mother as the emotional effects become worse and worse. This problem is even more common when there is pressure by others on the woman to have the abortion, and she does so reluctantly. Adoption is a lot safer than abortion, if people knew the facts about abortion I bet they would rather give their child for adoption rather than having an abortion. And I think that
“Abortion -should it be a right of every woman in the present context- A critical analysis”
The pro-life side argues that the most effective and appropriate contraceptive method is abstinence, or in some cases family planning. Most pro-life supporters argue that contraceptives may encourage teens to be sexually active and in turn leads to a high rate of teen pregnancies. Although they are aware that contraceptive methods are readily available and can help reduce the number of abortions, yet they disagree with them because of moral and social grounds.
