It seems to me it would be more accurate to say “The War on Babies.” After all, the mother will not lose her life from an abortion, but her child will. Abortions do not seem fair to me because in following through with an abortion, a child loses their life without having any say in the matter. All
Abortion is Wrong After a Month At what point in time would you make killing a child legal? Do you think it is right to walk in the middle of the street and shoot someone in the head? It’s illegal and you would be sent straight to jail, but having an abortion and killing the baby that is living and growing inside you is “your right” even when it’s basically the same thing. You shouldn’t bring a baby into the world just to have an abortion and kill it. Abortion should be illegal after one month of being pregnant.
The government must have certain laws in order to maintain control, murder is against the law, whether an adult is killed or a child. Abortion should be illegal in the United States. Termination is a last resort option; it kills an innocent child and gives people less options to adopt. Abortion is unconstitutional and should not be practiced in the United States There are other options besides abortion, women can have the baby and take care of the child or can have the baby and put the child up for
Abortion takes away unwanted pregnancies from women who would suffer otherwise from the stress and trauma of carrying a child for nine months. Pro- life supporters refuse to see a woman’s situation, reasons, and benefits for getting abortions before assuming cruel things about them. They are ignorant to the reason why many women choose to make the decision they do. Clearly, abortion should remain legal in America; it may seem immoral, but it is frequently the best decision for people put in that situation. Even so, a fetus cannot be compared to a living human being.
Pro-Choice “77% of Anti-Abortion Leaders are men, 100% of them will never be pregnant” (Barbara Kruger). Whether to continue or end a pregnancy, has been a long debated topic, extending long after the Roe v. Wade case that went all the way to the Supreme court (ProCon). Abortion is defined as the intentional termination of a pregnancy, frequently performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy (Oxford University Press). Each year, over one million women in America chose to have an abortion (WebMD). What would happen if that right to choose was taken away?
Thesis: You do not have the right to tell a rape victim that she cannot get an abortion. Her rights were taking away from her when being raped, why should we now take her rights away from her free will. God gave us free will to make our own decisions. So why does the government think they have the right to take our rights away. Logos: The reason I believe rape victims should be allowed abortion is because it can help them put there assault behind them so they can recover more quickly and avoid the additional trauma of having to give birth to a rapist baby.
Texas has even reduced its funding towards family planning and completely removed Planned Parenthood, an organization well known for its pro-choice stance, from state funding (Grossman et al.). By removing this support, women who choose or have chosen abortion now feel as though they are the ones in the wrong, not the law. There is no doubt this law was set in place in hopes women would feel guilty and change their minds about abortion. Even if the women still choose to abort after this, they will feel more uncomfortable and ashamed about their
While the fetus is developing in the incubator/large container, if it has the same physical and psychological aspects as it would while in the mother’s womb, some of the issues against abortion may be eliminated. The concern anti-abortionists have with eliminating the fetus may no longer be. The women who prefer an abortion, still have that option, but they will not be killing the fetus. Anti-abortionists would prefer the incubator/large container method over an abortion because you are not killing a fetus. Many babies would be given a future that they may not have been given prior to the incubator/large container option.
A second reason why abortion is wrong is because it deprives the fetus from his future. When we decide to kill a fetus then we are taking away from him a future like ours. The argument is as follows : (1) it is impermissible to kill humans, who if lived, would have a future like ours, (2) if abortion is not done, the fetus would have future as we do have, (3) so it is wrong to kill the fetus (4) therefore abortion is impermissible. A similar argument was given by Don Marquis in his article “Why Abortion is Immoral”. He stated that what makes killing wrong is neither the effect on the murder, nor the effect on the victim’s relatives or friends, but the effect is on the victim himself.
There is a divide among the people of the United States surrounding the idea of women being able to have abortions. Some people strongly believe that women should not be able to have abortions, they consider themselves to be pro-life. While other people firmly believe that women have the right to have abortions, those people are considered to be pro-choice. Women across the world should have the right to choose whether or not they want to have abortions because they have the right to their own bodies. The argument for people who believe in pro-choice is that the government should not be able to decide whether or not a woman should continue a pregnancy because it is her body.
