The mother thought she would have the support, both emotionally and possibly financially, of her significant other, however when this is taken, she has no choice but to do it without the support anymore. 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.
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. But when it comes down to it who should have the say in the abortion ? It should be the women
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.
• Women will die of unsafe abortions if we make it illegal. 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. Mary Anne Warren establishes a belief that a fetus’s right to live is overruled by an expecting mother’s right to an abortion because it is not a technically a true person until it is born.
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). The D&X procedure involves delivering the baby until just the head remains in the cervix.
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
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).
I believe a woman should have the right to choose whether to keep the baby if she knows that she is willing to take up such a huge responsibility. 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.
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.
It will forever be a controversial issue within the views of abortions, but as a social worker, realistically, we have to accept the fact that abortions could be an option for the clients we are seeing. They could have possibly been raped by a family member and choose not to have the baby, so then we would
