Knowing the statistics of what Planned Parenthood does and how many women and men use these services is important because of the misconceptions are present and prevalent in the minds of many. For example, most believe that abortion is all that Planned Parenthood does and that it is the most popular. However, as shown in the graph, abortion takes of 3% of all of Planned Parenthood’s services. In fact, Planned Parenthood performs STI/STD testing and treatment the most, with the next program being contraception. When the funding in places like Texas is lost, people go straight to abortion, when in fact, these men and women will be losing so much more than most realize.
Caitlynn Thomas Mrs. Simmons English 3 H 14 December 2015 Rough Draft Late-Term Abortion is Not Wrong or Unethical (too informal?) Late-term abortion has been a topic debated over generations and is still seen as a vital issue today. A majority of the population views late-term abortion as morally and legally wrong, which is mostly due to the manipulation of the government and media. The Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act signed by George Bush places the lives and health of women and fetuses in danger, as well as puts doctors at risk for providing safe care (Feldt). As this ban still stands, people listen to the majority of society rather than their personal thoughts on the topic.
Wade were to be overturned because pro-life judges were elected in, there is proof to believe that women would begin self-inducing abortions and the mortality rates would rise. Proof of this comes from an article from November 2015 in The Atlantic. Olga Khazan writes that since the 2013 law in Texas was passed stating that “the states abortion clinics [must] meet the standards of ambulatory surgical centers and [that] their doctors [must] have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital,” 100,000 and 240,000 women in Texas (ages 18-49) have attempted to self-induce an abortion. You do not need to be a medical doctor or medically trained to know that a self-induced abortion is extremely harmful to both the woman and the fetus. There are several ways a woman could self-induce an abortion: herbals, street corner drugs, and self-induced.
Summary While anti-abortion legislatures have been passing ‘Women’s Right to Know’ policies for over two decades, a more recent trend has been to add a mandatory viewing of an ultrasound to the state-mandated informed consent procedure. Whereas abortion advocates argue that these laws are unethical and may cause psychological harm to a woman seeking an abortion, the anti-abortion activists stand behind these policies saying that viewing an ultrasound promotes a bond between mother and child and helps the woman to make a more informed decision. Evidence demonstrates that ultrasound viewing does not deter a woman from having an abortion, but may illicit a range of emotional responses, including some negative feelings. Abortion trends throughout
According to “What has been the Impact of Roe v. Wade”, four decades after the law was passed the issue of abortion remains contentious. (2b) Although this law was empowering for women, many people that are pro life supporters disagree with abortion
There was also a bill passed to further “restrict the use of federal funds in abortion procedures” (OpenSecrets 1). Even though the idea of abortion is very controversial because there are lots of different religious aspects and opinions in the world. The government is still working on ways to benefit everyone 's opinion. The house of Representatives, congress, the supreme court, the president debate every day on new bills to be passed to make the people
In 2014, 360,000 women received breast exams, while another 270,000 received pap tests (Klasing, 2017). Both of these tests provide low-income women an equal opportunity to detect cancer early in an effort to receive life-saving treatment before it is too late. Like I’ve mentioned before, so many people associated Planned Parenthood with abortions. I’ve heard so many times, “why should we have to pay for women to have abortions.” However, absolutely none of the government funding received by Planned Parenthood pays for abortion services. In fact it’s quite the opposite.
Most people would think that losing a baby can conjure up a whole lot of problems a mental disability’s including me. Yet from doing hard research on this this I understand that now that most women do not regret are remorse the fact that they got an abortion according to Lisa Tolin, she writes, “Contrary to popular belief, women who have abortions may experience little or no long-term psychological trauma. In a study meant to examine how such factors as race and ethnicity influence the psychological after-effects of abortions, psychologists Nancy Felipe Russo Ph.D.. of Arizona State University, and Amy Dabul, Ph.D., of Phoenix College, found that the best clue to a woman 's mental well-being after an abortion is her state of mind before the pregnancy--in particular her level of self-esteem. In other words, those who found the procedure traumatic were generally troubled long before they showed up at an abortion clinic. In fact, Dabul and Russo contend that much of the stress experienced by women who get abortions may stem not from the procedure itself but from the simple fact that the pregnancy is unwanted.” Now that you know most women are less likely to have serious psychological trauma to getting an abortion.
has been about 42 years since the Roe vs. Wade decision was established, and yet the abortion controversy is still raging. Abortion is often classified as the “termination of pregnancy”, so that it doesn 't lead to the birth of a child (British Pregnancy Advisory Services, 2015). Taking a step back into history, the Roe vs. Wade decision of 1973, legislated that a pregnant woman is entitled to have an abortion until the end of the first trimester of pregnancy without any interference by the state. Since the validation of abortion there have been many debates, uproars, and opinions. Two common positions of abortion is “Pro-choice” and “Pro-life”.
Today in society there have been so many young women who have had unplanned pregnancies and have been undecided on what they are going to do with their babies. Apparently, most women plan on keeping their babies other on the other hand prefer to get an abortion. Today in society we have only have early abortions for women that are not close to having their babies and that they are still in their early trimester. Women who are in their late trimester are unlikely to get an early abortion because their babies have developing well in every trimesters . Also we have women who are already mothers go through these kinds of situations as well.
Since the fetus is depended on the mother does that make them have less rights than any other person? These questions must be answered before abortion can be ruled to be unconstitutional. Until the public becomes more aware of these pressing questions abortion will still remain legal and constitutional. Both sides have legitimate arguments to defend their beliefs and neither group should be looked down upon by the other for having different values and beliefs. Abortion to this day is still a very controversial topic and one of the most debated issues.
Sometimes mistakes happen and the only way women can get full control of their lives is by having the right to abortion. By taking control, a woman can pursue her dreams and lead a successful life. Also by taking control women can decide on if they want to take the chance of dying. Nine in one thousand woman die during child brith.
By 1900, however, most states made abortion a serious crime. By the 1960s, pro-choicers were trying to make abortion legal again. In the early 1970s, 14 states permitted abortion if the mother was in danger or the victim of incest or rape. In 1973, the decision of Roe v. Wade held that all abortion is legal during the first trimester, that states may regulate abortion to protect the women’s health by the second trimester, and that states may regulate abortion for the interests of the mother and the unborn in the third trimester. It is still the law in effect today.
The topic of abortion has been and more than likely will forever be an extremely controversial and typically heated debate. The Supreme Court made the landmark decision in 1972 in the Roe vs. Wade case making abortion legal and on demand for all American women. Throughout the years, however, new appointed Supreme Court judges say the abortion issue should be a decision for the individual state to decide and not a federal matter. The abortion debate houses two sides: pro-choice and pro-life. The group made up of pro-choicers decide to look back throughout history and the years of struggle women had to seek an abortion.
Women’s rights have been a long struggle in America’s legal system, as well as in the religious world, for many decades and women continue to have challenges, concerns, and struggles today. Fighting for what is best for their bodies such as a woman’s right to contraceptives to control whether she will get pregnant or not was not ideal for religious and personal reasons but would find a worthy advocate in a woman who would dedicate her life for women’s reproductive rights. The right for a woman to have an abortion became a legal battle that went all the way to the Supreme Courts in a very well-known case. It has always been a double standard in what was right and wrong, moral or immoral, towards women than men. A man was looked at with respect
