In the world that we are living today women are finding all different remedies and doing different practices to abort a baby and some, maybe most are dangerous ways. There are currently women drinking certain dangerous liquids that can be toxic and life threatening to them. Pro-choicers believe that abortion should be legalized. With this being done women can now go to a specialized doctor that can terminate their pregnancy in a safe
In my paper I am discussing the debate of abortion in terms of induced, which is the intentional termination of pregnancy through drugs or surgery, and therapeutic, that is the abortion performed to preserve the life and health of the mother. In this paper, I take a strong stance against the acceptance of abortion both legally and socially. The main arguments used against pro-life (support for the abolishment of abortion), is based on the valuing of life. To those who are pro-choice (liberals, etc. ), argue that it is the woman’s choice to decide whether or not to have an abortion based on the grounds of valuing her life.
Today, abortion still one of the most controversial topics in our communities, some with the Idea that it's wrong (pro-life) and others that is totally okay that women should have control over their body (pro-choice). Even though, it became legal in 1973, there are a big amount of people opposing abortion as a moral wrong. In this paper I would like to talk about three different theories on abortion. First, the structural functionalist, second the conflict perspective theory and third the symbolic Interaction theory. A structural-functional approach that it should be possible for a pregnant woman to obtain a legal abortion in specific circumstances.
Name Course Tutor Date Rhetoric Movement The United States pro-choice movement or the United States abortion-rights movement is a socio-political movement in America that argues that a woman has the right to procure an abortion. The movement counters the pro-life movement that maintains that the fetus has a right to live as well since human life starts at conception. Moreover, the issue of abortion generates intense moralistic reactions compared to other issues in the United States. To pro-lifers, abortion is an attack on human life, while pro-choice supporters view the process as an attack on human independence. Regardless of the position taken, the issue has substantial moral implications and no room for compromise.
In my opinion, I think that women should have the right to have an abortion if they want to. Some people, mostly male may not agree with me, but for me abortion is the women that should have the choice if she wants to have the baby or not. In 1965 there were another case called the Griswold v Connecticut which talks mostly
..The exercise of her right to decide how many children she will have and when she shall have them will procure for her the time necessary to that developmental of other faculties than that of reproduction.” (Young, 277) Going back on the phrase voluntary motherhood, Sanger stresses the ideas of woman getting to choose what happens with their bodies. They should be allowed who they wish to have a child with, when and even how many children they wish to have. This is very important because during that time woman did not have much control even though it was their body they were looked down upon when it came to abortions or contraceptives. Although birth control has been defined as a violation of natural law, it still brought comfort to many women. This is why Sanger wanted to give so many women the opportunities to be educated on reproduction.
In reflection to the readings, there are many arguments that are for or against abortion. Is abortion ever justified? In feminism point of view, Susan Sherwin believes, yes, abortion is justified because it focuses on woman’s right to abortion in a liberal aspect. She also believes that woman’s right that pregnant woman are the best judge when to considering to abort the fetus. That means, the autonomy is shifted to the woman.
Wade regarding making abortions easily available to women. Planned Parenthood is one of those ways that came about after the case. Now this article discusses the secret side of the clinic and how it would be better if people were able to know more about it. There doesn’t seem to be a clear side for this article to go on. It stands in the middle, not going to the pro-life side, but not turning to pro-choice.
Well, if I'd never come into existence in the first place, I probably wouldn't have any strong feelings on the matter. I love my mother and I respect whatever decision she would have chosen. What I want is for the women to have access for a safe and legal abortion for when or if the women needs it. But when it comes down to it who should have the say in the abortion ? It should be the women
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,
For example, many pro life people would say that if a woman doesn’t want the responsibility of raising a child, they should just put it up for adoption (1). This is not necessarily a fair accusation considering that not all women who want an abortion want it because they don’t want the responsibility. Having a child can be extremely expensive, even if you are not planning to keep the child. While pregnant, women have to make multiple trips to the doctor to make sure their pregnancy is going well. Also, the hospital bill for giving birth can be in the thousands of dollars by itself (1).
