After reading this article, I have a greater understanding of why people who support a woman’s right to have an abortion are frustrated. If a state decides abortion is legal, then they need to support that decision and allow for easy access to abortion clinics. If a state votes against abortion, women from that state who are unhappy should move to another, pro-abortion, state. However, all that aside, I think “War on Women” is an inaccurate term for this article.
There is a divide among the people of the United States surrounding the idea of women being able to have abortions. Some people strongly believe that women should not be able to have abortions, they consider themselves to be pro-life. While other people firmly believe that women have the right to have abortions, those people are considered to be pro-choice. Women across the world should have the right to choose whether or not they want to have abortions because they have the right to their own bodies.
Abortion takes away unwanted pregnancies from women who would suffer otherwise from the stress and trauma of carrying a child for nine months. Pro- life supporters refuse to see a woman’s situation, reasons, and benefits for getting abortions before assuming cruel things about them. They are ignorant to the reason why many women choose to make the decision they do. Clearly, abortion should remain legal in America; it may seem immoral, but it is frequently the best decision for people put in that situation. Even so, a fetus cannot be compared to a living human being.
Thesis: You do not have the right to tell a rape victim that she cannot get an abortion. Her rights were taking away from her when being raped, why should we now take her rights away from her free will. God gave us free will to make our own decisions. So why does the government think they have the right to take our rights away.
The pro-life versus pro-choice debate has polarized this nation for decades. Many supporters believe that it is more of an issue regarding women’s rights, than it is about the definition of life. The individuals that are against the prospect of terminating a pregnancy, believe that life begins at conception. This is where the argument lies, what truly defines life and where do we draw the line with abortion? Life is defined as, “The condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death” (Definition of life in English)
What should the women do that would best fit her and her future. This debate has come to be known as Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice. These terms meaning; pro-life is meaning that the government has the obligation in preserving or protecting a life no matter what, pro-choice is saying that it should not be left up to the government, but up to the pregnant individual. Terms or phrases that will be mentioned in this paper quite a bit that as a reader may like to know to better understand the subject and the view point are things like; abortion, open-adoption, and closed-adoption. Abortion by its dictionary meaning is the deliberate termination of a human
Additionally, rational women should have the right to decide if they want to keep or abort the child, as she is the best person to judge whether the child is a price that can be paid. Advances in abortion cases today support this argument, with young girls who are too immature to be fully supporting mothers, the decision to abort is more rational. This freedom of choice reflects the mother’s moral right, who has a fully developed consciousness regarding abortion. Thus, in my opinion, due to the lack of the foetus’s moral status is more important. The first-trimester foetus is shown to lack moral status, as it is not able to function in a moral community; it is instead only genetically human, making it morally permissible to have an abortion.
Liberals are the complete opposite they believe that women have the right to decide over their own bodies, and that a fetus is not yet a human life. Therefore, I do not support abortion. My believe is that abortion is taking someone’s life who didn 't ask to be created. In that way, I guess you can say that
Abortion could be seen as a way that the mother IS caring for the fetus AND taking moral responsibility for her actions. By refusing to bring a child into the world when they know that they cannot adequately care or provide for them, they are indeed making the best decision for both of them. Caring enough to come to the conclusion that you are not fit to be a parent is proof that you are putting the needs of another in front of
Abortion Today, abortion is one of the biggest debate topics. Some argue that respect should be given to those who are unborn, and the other side argues that women should have a choice for their future. Some women choose abortion because they feel they should have control over their bodies, control over their future, and control over their finances. On the other hand, some people believe that abortion is wrong because of the potential risks, morality, and the rights of the unborn. Abortion does not have to be the answer to an unwanted pregnancy
Unlike Justice White, Justice Rehnquist believed that abortion was protected by the Constitution. Instead, he believed that it was not correct to base opinions on the right to privacy. He states that if a women wants to obtain an abortion, they would have to tell a doctor. You would also need to go to a clinic or a hospital. So, therefore it was not private at all.
An additional argument for these ultrasound laws that AUL puts forward is that “women will feel bonded to their children after seeing them on the ultrasound screen” and once that bond is formed “a woman no longer feels ambivalent toward her pregnancy and actually begins to feel invested in her unborn child” (AUL, 2013, p.3). The abortion-rights counter argument comes from organizations like the Guttmacher Institute that claims that these ultrasound laws are a “perversion of medical ethics in general and the informed consent process in particular” and they will not have a substantial impact on reducing abortion rates as viewing the ultrasound will not persuade the woman to forego the abortion (Benson Gold, 2009). Other abortion advocates and providers argue that viewing an ultrasound might cause psychological harm to the woman seeking the abortion and they would like to protect the women from such pain (Graham, Ankrett, & Killick,
Their interpretation of the opposition’s limitation of abortion is as a n act of war on women. The framing of the war on women narrative details that the right wing political sphere seeks to limit and control the bodies of women’s nation-wide. Which is partly-factual correct given that a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy is an exercise of choice. The left’s pro-choice is not to be confused with pro-abortion, pro-choice is simply respecting the decision to obtain an abortion or not under one’s free accord and leisure. In its most literal form, it is an observation of the constitutional right to have an abortion if one pleases and in defense of this liberty granted by constitutional powers that
The American society today is blinded by the lack of information within reproductive rights and abortion. Most tend to believe that abortion is the main issue within reproductive rights and tend to defund places like Planned Parenthood, or try to. Abortion is a controversial topic, and unfortunately not many know what abortion really is. Due to this, some choose to be Pro-Life as opposed to being Pro-Choice. According to TFP Student Action, there are multiple reasons to not be pro-choice.
Some people are neither pro-life or pro-choice. These people believe there are some exceptions to not wanting to allow abortions. Some of these reasons are health issues, if the child is not developing properly, or if the child was conceived by rape. some pro-life people agree with a few of these reasons. Some people that are pro-life do not agree with the fact that rape should be an option if the child was conceived by rape.
