In the 1970’s, abortion became a worldwide issue. While some people wanted women to have a choice on whether to terminate their pregnancy or not, others believed it was murder to terminate a developing, unborn child. Although the debates have settled down, abortion is still a controversial topic. Abortion is taking the life from another human being and it should be illegal worldwide. Many people believe abortion should be legal because it is a part of women’s rights.
Unborn babies are still human beings and have the right to life just as anyone else would. It is unfair to make decisions for a child when they didn’t choose to be brought into the world, but since they were, they should be able to live the life rightfully given to them. According to Judie Brown, “Abortion kills a human being; abortion stops a beating heart; abortion at any stage of an individual’s biological development is murder!” (Brown, “Face the Facts: Abortion Is Murder”) This quote blatantly states the ultimate truth about abortion and also says that no matter what stage the pregnancy is at, an abortion that is performed is murder. One of the largests abortion clinics has done millions of abortions, along with other health programs, but Joshua Denton found that, “Planned Parenthood has killed over 7.6 million babies since it legally began performing abortions in 1973 following the Roe v. Wade decision.” (Denton, “Planned Parenthood Killed 321,384 Babies Last Year Bringing Total Killed to Over 7.6 Million”) Planned Parenthood knowingly kills hundreds of thousands of babies every year and even tries to convince communities that are pro life convert to pro choice. They even try to pass different laws in different countries, such as Guyana, to allow middle class citizens access to health care providers who can perform abortions, which is increasing the death toll of unborn babies who are murdered around the
Abortion is an act of ending a pregnancy by removing the fetus from the womb before it grows. Abortion, which occurs extemporaneously, is known as miscarriage, and if it occurs purposely then it is known as an induced abortion. Nowadays, modern methods for abortion include surgery or medication or both. Mostly, abortions are the results of unwanted and unintended pregnancies. Abortion has become one of the most controversial issues in today’s society.
If you ask a person about murder, they would probably respond that it is bad and should not happen, but what if you ask them about abortion? Is not abortion murdering a baby in the comfortable and safe womb of the mother? This issue has caused many discussions, because even though it is obvious that you are killing a baby, people do not consider it as murder. Abortion is painfully taking a baby´s right to live just because the embryos are not considered human beings. God created us in his image,which gives us a value, and we do not determine if a baby has the right to live based on how we think humans are.
The plan b pill is very wrong in many ways because it causes abortion. Since it is killing babies, they should never be allowed to people that are not ready to step up to their actions. It works like any other abortion drug it thins the lining of the mothers uterus so that the baby cannot develop and the thus dies. The morning after pill is the most awful ending of an unborn life (should the morning). Quite a few very religious people argued that plan b pill is wrong since it includes the death of an unborn and an undeveloped fetus.
This is similar to the Supreme Court’s ruling. According to the law, an abortion is legal during the first trimester, allowed under certain medical advisement in the second trimester, and illegal during the third trimester. The connection between the court’s law, and Noddings argument is no coincidence. The reason the Supreme Court made the abortion law in this way is because as the child progress in development, it becomes closer and closer to the idea of being a human with literal life. With Noddings belief that abortion is less moral as the relation builds, it makes sense the relationship builds between mother and child as it gets further along in age, and progresses in the trimesters.
Greely is credible since he does have a child with CF, and knows the difficulties of caring for a child with a disease. Parents who have a child with CF can relate to Greely, and find him very credible. In the In the article, “Prenatal Genetic Testing Promotes Abortion”, written by Hank Greely, head of Stanford 's center for Law and biosciences, he claims that prenatal testing will only help “eliminate children that are believe too costly for society”. This is an overgeneralization, and he does not include any statistics to how much a child with a disability can cost. He also states that abortions “will be viewed as a way to save money.” This is an overgeneralized, and oversimplifying claim.
The audience recognizes that although abortion is cruel, it is needed. However, abortion itself is also cruel considering that it is also unfair to kill the fetus before it was born. Here, we can understand Sallie Tisdale’s inner conflict. She states that “[a]bortion is the narrowest edge between kindness and cruelty” (Tisdale 420). If she shows kindness to the women who wants to abort their children, the fetus would have to be killed.
The case is assuming that since Nancy previously had an abortion, that she does not condemn or find abortion morally reprehensible. Assuming this is true, It is consistent that Nancy can take this position and still decide against abortion for herself based on moral grounds. This is because the pro-choice argument is about just that, individual choice. In order for this to be true, there are many options for Nancy’s line of thinking. Nancy could based her decision that she has already have an abortion and it would be morally irresponsible for her to have another.
Abortion should be illegal because medical practitioners who perform an abortion is taking the life of a living human being, capable of breathing, capable of crying and nurturing and cutting its life short before it has the opportunity to realize its potential. It should be illegal because the mother who is supposed to love it more than anyone else in the world, who is supposed to protect it is complicit in its pain, suffering and
Inevitably, it would result in many more unplanned pregnancies which would equal more abortions. Really, if people want that number to go down they should be in favor of increasing the funding of Planned Parenthood. Supporting why the business should not be defunded since women would have the access to and be able to afford birth control and the number of abortions would go down, but if the government defunds them then women are not going to be able to get birth control to stop the unplanned pregnancy, which causes the abortions rise. Arguing to this the people wanting the defunding would say that the number of abortions would just continue to rise since Planned Parenthood if offering them. Which is untrue since they also offer contraception in which people could use to prevent unplanned pregnancies which lowers the abortion
This stigmatization stemmed from patriarchal ideas of purity that believed women should be “delicate, spiritual and dedicated to the home” (Beisel & Kay 2004). Abortions not only went against Victorian ideals of female sanctity concerning sexual matters, but abortion also disobeyed the norms of motherhood that forced women to become mothers (Reagan 1996). Abortions became public knowledge due to the form of punishment given to women who had abortions. The punishment was not fines or jail sentences, but instead a humiliating interrogation about sexual matters with male officials (Reagan 1996). These interrogations became public knowledge once the interrogation was complete and the process of stigmatization and invalidation began immediately (Fadiman 1992).
Abortion, is it unethical, yes, I believe its morally wrong. “Abortion is defined as the intentional termination of pregnancy” (Abortion 80). Some believe you are not considered life until you take your first breath, I personally believe you are considered life upon conception. I can’t see how someone could murder a woman and kill her and her unborn child and get two death sentences but a mother can have an abortion and it be considered okay. Just because we have a written law doesn’t make it right.
Abortion is describes as a medical procedure used to end a pregnancy and cause the death of the fetus. In today’s society, abortion is seen in one of two ways. Abortion is described positive towards women’s right, when believed that pregnant women should have the right to choose whether they want to have an abortion or not. However, abortion is also viewed negatively with pro-life activist who stand against abortions and believe a fetus should have the right to live regardless of the mothers situation. There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to abortion, making it a controversial topic in society.
However, it is often forgotten that the organization serves a variety of medical conditions. By defunding Planned Parenthood the American society will suffer by denying those who are below the federal property lines to treat their problems, that are not relating to abortion. Planned Parenthood’s patients are not only women, and as stated before, abortion services only make up 3% of Planned Parenthood’s treatments. Also, by denying proper funding to Planned Parenthood, those who may have contracted an STI/STD are unable to get treatment due to the inability to pay for advanced technology that is required. Overall, by defunding Planned Parenthood the government is denying a large number of people the right to get medical treatment for their conditions because of conservative
