This must be changed, it is not right for anyone to face this if they don't want to. In 2008, "84.3% of all abortions were performed on unmarried women. " This was in America, where abortions are legal without any exceptions. The amount of women in other countries, where not wanting to be a single parent is not a reason to get an abortion, having to have children is preposterous. Can you really say to yourself that women should be forced into being a single parent, when they simply don't want to be
What if your mother had aborted you ? 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.
The Supreme court came to a decision that they would keep the law active. Like many, I do not support the legalization of abortions. I believe that ALL lives are precious, and no life should be terminated, simply because they are an inconvenience to the mother. Dealing with going through an abortion because of medical purposes and victims of rape, is a different story. But when a woman thinks her life is more precious, and is too selfish to give the HUMAN growing inside of her, depending on her to nourish it, then that is a feminist issue, I cannot stand behind.
Pro-choicers believe that if abortion is made illegal women will be pushed to perform unsafe abortions and they will die. Abortion being illegal means that women cannot go to a registered nurse or doctor to perform an abortion unless they agree to do it illegal and because of this woman will be pushed to come up with different home remedies to perform abortion. These home remedies can then kill women. 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.
As humans, we are given different rights that are meant to provide us with a chance at a good life. However, these rights can become compromised when it comes to conflicts between a pregnant woman and her fetus. The right of the fetus to live is seen as inferior to the right of the mother to have an abortion. Although each of the rights is different, it is not appropriate to say that one citizen’s rights are more superior than another citizen’s rights.
Supporters of late-term abortion believe the mother should undoubtfully have more rights than the baby. However, once the baby is out of the woman's body, the argument becomes invalid. The argument becomes invalid because the baby isn't supported by its mother. The baby can technically live without the mother's body (Alters 147).
Imagine how much that number will go up if it becomes illegal (pause). Sometimes it 's the only way that the woman will be able to live, sometimes it 's unplanned teen pregnancy and they can 't raise or support a child, sometimes it 's not the woman 's fault and they were raped and sexually abused. 78% of teen pregnancies are unplanned, 49% of pregnancies that happen in the U.S. every year are unintended. Half of those women will
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).
In the article “Abortion is too complex to feel all one way about”, Anna Quindlen provides her views on abortion and some life events that changed her view. She tells us multiple stories about seeing other women having to face the decision to either have an abortion or keeping the child. She has seen relationships fall apart because of this. Anna ends up having two children of her own and sees that it can be overwhelming. Anna asks her husband if he would want her to get an abortion if she accidentally becomes pregnant again and his response was “
With that argument, how come women can't breastfeed with her body to care for her children? How come women are okay to sell their bodies and sometimes become too extreme for the public to see, but one cannot breastfeed for the welfare of her baby she loves and cares for? I would like to point out that all men and women are important but this issue is certainly taking the rights of women and mothers who gave birth to us and raised us at least some time in our lives. We need to help them be recognized again until they are not hurt or discriminated just because they don't fit to what ignorant or desirous young or old, and immature people stop having to spit out what they think to the woman who may be going through some hardship after giving birth. It is likely that women get depression after pregnancy and birth, it is common.
Abortion, Why Not to Abort If you are asking if abortion is the right thing to do, then ask yourself this. Is committing murder the right thing to do? The answer is no. You should never abort a child because of these reasons. First of all you are committing a murder, it may not be considered murder under the law but in my point of view it is.
