First of all, the abortion refers to “Abortion is when a pregnancy is ended so that it doesn't result in the birth of a child. Sometimes it is called 'termination of pregnancy'.” (British Pregnancy Advisory Agency , 2015). It means to terminate pregnancy whether through induced or spontaneous causes. When the abortion is spontaneous, it is referred to as a miscarriage. When the abortion is induced, this refers to plan pregnancy termination.
Abortions affect the reproductive organ making it possible that complications may arise later. There are multiple pieces of data pointing out the risks of giving birth to a baby with a serious complication or never giving birth at all are increased with abortions. There are studies suggesting that abortion can cause women to become infertile or even low birth weight and premature births in future children (“Abortion: Does it affect...”). Women’s rate of having a child born premature increases by 37% after their first abortion (Macrae). After having an abortion, the reproductive organ can have long-term to permanent damage which could cause complications in future pregnancies.
From immediate side effect for abortion, women may feel nausea, headache and vomiting; from short-term, abortions will cause allergy, infection or even prolonged bleeding, many women will bleed 9-16 days, and 1 in 12 will bleed 30 days or more and in the long term, if any parts of the fetus or placenta are left in the womb, it will affect future fertility. (Contracept.org, 2016) The evidence presented by several studies indicates that even though an abortion might benefit a woman in the short-term, it actually has long-term negative consequences and can result in many future health
There are always serious risks for having an abortion, especially late term. Having an abortion carries the risk of the mother not being able to get pregnant again. It also can lead to serious health complications and in some cases death. Abortions often lead to unwanted memories, which can result into stress and depression. Some women have gotten breast cancer from aborting a child.
Others believe that no child should come into this world unwanted. Nonetheless, these mothers don’t understand the extent to which an abortion can cause them serious and life-threatening physical and psychological damage. Physically, in the first few weeks after the abortion, it can cause diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain. But, it can lead to other more dangerous complications like, damage to the cervix, scarring of the uterine lining, perforation of the uterus and if abortion is done during the advanced stage of the pregnancy (i.e. After 4 months) or in unhygienic and unlawful conditions it can lead to death.
Every life is precious regardless if its a full grown person or an unborn child in its mother’s womb. Abortion right does not support the fact that every human has the right to life. Not only does is abortion essentially murder, the effects of abortion on the mother can cause psychological damage and stunts the growth of the number of available babies that could potentially be adopted by willing parents. Abortion should be illegal because it causes harm to society, women and millions of unborn children around the country. Taking the life from the most innocent human beings on earth, before they could even make the decision for themselves, is the most cruel and inhumane action to commit.
And if a heartbeat defines life, then abortion should definitely be outlawed. Moreover, have we ever thought about what pain the fetus feels? Isn’t it unfair to a little fetus to experience pain because of irresponsible parents? And the mother’s health risks isn’t a debate we should dig in, it is the mother’s responsibility and choice
Women who are victims of rape will always be in remembrance of their terrifying experience, which sometimes result in neglect and unfair treatment of the child due to the woman’s rape trauma syndrome. Women who are not financially stable that are pregnant and oppose abortion live in poverty. If abortions were banned it would increase illegal abortions which have critical effect to the woman’s health. Statistics estimate that the risk of death from an abortion is 0.6 in 100,000. The risk of death childbirth is 14 times higher, 8.8 in 100,000.
Killing Abortion Is Worse Than Killing a Fetus A woman walks through a crowd of hatred. People scream and jeer at her as she traipses past their signs, calling her a sinner, a murderer, and a monster. The protestors care little for the living, breathing woman- they only care about her fetus. Abortion is a choice a woman makes when she does not want to continue her pregnancy, so she has her fetus removed. It has become demonized and twisted throughout the years, making the procedure harder and harder to obtain.
It is a well-known fact that life begins now of conception. If it is murder to kill a human being in any stage of life, then abortion, the murder of the fetus, is obviously wrong, because murder is one of the ethical absolutes. When we perform an abortion, we take the life of an innocent child. We deny the unborn child its right to live and experience the world. No one has the right to take the life of another person, even an unborn child.
