They may also argue that late-term abortion causes more stress and emotions on the mother. Or that it can cause depression, anxiety, PTSD and insomnia or disturbing dreams. Little do they know that it is not scientifically proven that those things are caused by late-term abortion. The effects of late-term abortion are depression and anxiety, but the rest of the “effects” can be caused by factors from the mother’s past traumatic experiences (APA.org). That being said, the effects of late-term abortion are blown far out of proportion in just another effort of scaring young women away from making their own decisions about their own uterus’.
Throughout the story she sympathizes while also having her heart broken after seeing unborn fetus after unborn fetus. Earlier in the text, Tisdale explains the reasons why women get abortions, “Women have abortions because they are too old, too young, too poor, and too rich, too stupid, and too smart” (Tisdale 382). As the quote suggests, there is conflicting reasons for abortions. Once again suggesting that abortion is a very complex topic, that must be looked at without such a black and white
A 2002 study published by the Southern Medical Journal found that women who had abortions were 154% more likely to commit suicide than women who carried to term (http://abortion.procon.org/). This statistic shows that abortion can be deadly for not only the unborn child, but the mother as well. Many women cannot handle what they have done, so they try to escape reality in the worst way. Thus, this shows that many women don’t understand the gravity of their situation until the child has been removed. Abortion is one of the most divisive issues in our world today, and almost everyone has an opinion about it.
Many women also get hurt while abortion. Women Injured by Abortion suffered grievous psychological injuries, but many suffered severe physical complications as well. All were exposed to the risk of serious physical injury, as well as serious psychological injuries. Were not just killing that baby us as women are risking our lives. There 's people that don’t care if they hurt you when they 're doing your abortion if they think they are doing a great job they are ok with it.
Abortion should be illegal whether the woman was raped, got pregnant too young, or just doesn 't want to have a child because you don’t think you 're ready. You can always put the baby up for an adoption so they can go live with a family that will care for them. When you abort your unborn child you are killing a person that is half of you. Do you really want to kill a part of you? Help stop these murders, it 's well past time for these innocent lives to be saved from the cruelty
A lot of people commonly consider it the end to a pregnancy, but for some women it is just the beginning of something extremely dreadful. According to the Encyclopedia of Human Development, “postpartum depression is depression in mothers that occurs following the birth of their child” (1010). It is most common for mothers to develop it immediately following the birth, but it can be developed a few months after the birth of the child (Salkind, 1010). Either way, it can hit extremely hard and the excitement of having a child is ripped from the mind of the mother, only to be replaced by dark thoughts, depression, anxiety, etc. The length of postpartum depression varies though, based on which type you have and the severity of it.
The DES poisoning represents genuine threats to the body while a child is in the utero. Jane displays her own infertility to the regular practices of recommending DES to women who were at risk of having an unsuccessful labor. Jane’s mother had four miscarriages before Jane was conceived, and to anticipate another miscarriage, she was prescribed to DES. Because of the negative consequences on the reproductive system caused by DES, Jane’s mother had her ovaries removed. The side-effects of DES and its multigenerational impact caused Jane to develop a deformed uterus.
There are some cases when a woman gets pregnant and the placenta partially gets stuck on the uterus, or when they pull on the placenta it tears the uterus and there is absolutely no possibility of the mother surviving, abortion is an option because it is vital that you are raised by both parents if possible. Society today has allowed many things that some people agree on and some people disagree on, whether it is legalizing abortion to allowing weed to be legal in some states. If people decide to work as a whole and decide what is best for our country, things will eventually happen for the better. If people just worry about other things, then nothing will get accomplished. It is a work in progress but if it is Gods will for the world to be Pro-Life, then it will
Many Holocaust survivors recall the terrible experience of being pregnant but knowing they would not be able to keep their baby. “In the initial selection, pregnancy was an automatic pre cursor for death for women.” They would be immediately sent to the gas chambers. Women who fell pregnant during their stay in camp would undergo an abortion as late as five months into the pregnancy. “While the child was successfully aborted, in many cases the mothers themselves did not survive.” Women also suffered with menstruation, something that men did not have to go through. Menstruation caused two major concerns for women- excessive bleeding and humiliation.
Some women can not handle their “bundles of joy”. Women get abortions because they feel as if they are incapable of taking care of a child. If you were to take that option away from them that would raise many problems for the women and for our society as
In the 19th century all surgical procedures, including abortion were very risky. At that time hospitals weren’t commons, most respected doctors had little medical education. Once abortion was illegal in the United States of America, women started to leave and move foreign countries where abortions were still being performed properly. Many women in the United States started to challenge the law, but none of them was successful. In March of 1970, a woman named Norma McCorvey wanted to have an abortion due to the fact, she was a pregnant single woman.
Often woman without the means or money to have legal abortions would go to dangerous lengths to rid themselves of the fetus, a majority of these procedures they underwent were life threatening. It left them sick, made them unable to have anymore children and in some serious cases resulted in their deaths, and even after so much suffering many women remained pregnant. Yet, not only was it the controversial practice of abortions that Planned Parenthood was offering, but also contraceptives that ultimately eliminated a vast need for abortions as well. Their steady supplying of contraceptives and the organization’s goal to educate women about safe sex helped lower not only teen pregnancies but unwanted ones as
These same girls, they suggest, are also more likely to place their lives and health at risk by attempting self-induced abortion. Most minor that come through with the abortion they seem to have long terms side effect such as: depression, frequent weeping, feelings of guilt and loss of self-esteem, inability to communicate, suicidal thoughts, impaired efficiency in all walks of life, recourse to alcohol and drugs, loss of normal sexual vitality and desire. Strong emotions of grief, sadness, inappropriate emotional responsiveness, shame, anger and alienation are
Also, the hospital bill for giving birth can be in the thousands of dollars by itself (1). Another reason a woman may not want to go through a pregnancy is because people are cruel. Teens and young women especially get the bad end of the situation because it is not seen as ideal for young women or women who are not married to have a child. As for those who are pro life, they also have quite a debate as to why abortion should be illegal. The number one argument would be that abortion is the killing of a live fetus and that is murder (1).
Sometimes it 's not even the women 's choice (pause), sometimes it will end in a life or death decision, and I 'm not just talking about the child dying (pause). In some cases, medical emergencies compel a woman to resort to it. 13% of women have health problems and having a child could kill them or permanently damage not only their health but it could cause the child major health issues (pause). People need to stop with the shaming of women that have abortions. It should be the women 's choice (pause).
