Some women believe abortions are giving them rights but having an abortion is not the only way. Adoption is a much better option over abortion. An unwanted or unplanned pregnancy can scare some. This leads many rushing into abortion looking for a “‘quick fix.’” The American Adoption Agency stated, “...for every 149 women who choose abortion, only one woman chooses adoption” (American Adoptions, Inc).
It seems difficult to count every individual that could possibly be affected by an abortion. It could be few or many depending on the size of the family. It seems like not having an abortion, the greatest happiness for the greatest number occurs. Putting utilitarian thought aside, killing seems inarguably wrong and that is what an abortion is. It could not be possible for killing an innocent child to be right.
You don't have to have an abortion because you don't want to take care of the kid. I don't know what if feels like to be pregnant and being scared out of my mind. I hope i never have to go through that. I don't see abortion something this country has to fight about. The people that are doing it are the ones that have to go through the pain and guilt.
However, is very difficult for a person to express his/ her opinion on abortion, as it is not an openly and widely discussed topic. Moreover, many people consider abortion as a safe way to end pregnancy whereas; many others consider it as unethical as it kills the child before birth. Abortion has now become a controversial topic. There are many arguments whether abortion is right or wrong. For supporting my argument, I studied three articles, in one article, the author argues from the religious point of view that abortion is wrong and gives references from the Bible to prove the argument.
I don't think they should because why have an abortion when you weren't responsible to prevent that from happening , i think abortions should be illegal in the United States because its not right to take away a child's life because you weren't responsible. People who are pro choice think it's up to them to make the choice because it's their responsibility but why should they make that choice if they weren't responsible in the first place, and why do that to an innocent baby because if that were you i'm sure you would want to live. People are taking that choice away from a baby that could have a good future and will be happy they're
People who are pro-life, believe abortion should not be legal, while some people believe that the fetus is not a living person therefore it should be legal. There are also people who are in the middle, they are neutral, they are neither for or against abortions. If abortion is illegal then it will still happen. Women would still find a way to still have abortions but, they will be taking a greater risk in having them done. Abortion affects many people.
Human rights, the choice of adoption, and Post Abortion Syndrome are three good examples on why abortion should be illegal. The unborn child deserves to have a chance at life just as much as any other human being. Whether the child grows up with the birth family or an adoptive family, the child is still experiencing life rather than death. Why have an abortion when in the end it could cause the mother more damage than happiness? Before having an abortion all women should consider the advantages, disadvantages, and possible side effects very carefully.
For example on page 53 it says, “ There was a time, shortly after the Bill of Life was passed, that Dumpsters such as that would be tempting to girls like her. Desperate girls who would leave unwanted newborns in the trash. It had become so common that it wasn’t even deemed newsworthy anymore- it had become just a part of life. Funny, but the Bill of Life was supposed to protect the sanctity of life. Instead it just made life cheap.
In my paper I am discussing the debate of abortion in terms of induced, which is the intentional termination of pregnancy through drugs or surgery, and therapeutic, that is the abortion performed to preserve the life and health of the mother. In this paper, I take a strong stance against the acceptance of abortion both legally and socially. The main arguments used against pro-life (support for the abolishment of abortion), is based on the valuing of life. To those who are pro-choice (liberals, etc.), argue that it is the woman’s choice to decide whether or not to have an abortion based on the grounds of valuing her life. Her life in the present, and her life in the future, as maybe having a child can hinder her future goals, and plans.
It is not up to one group of people to decide what is ethically appropriate for everyone else. Frankley, the pro-life movement is sexist and abortions are justifiable because the fetus is not yet a person. In the Journal Of Philosophy, Don Marquis wrote an article
In the 1940’s there was a crack down on abortions forcing them to go underground to have abortions underground which was the cause of a new era. In the 1960’s there was more and more abortion deaths from attempting to kill the baby but instead failed and killed themselves on accident. There were also multiple cases of women that got an abortion and were to scared to tell anyone what had
Why Planned Parenthood Should not be Defunded by the Government “Trying to block women from getting access to contraception or defunding Planned Parenthood is completely nonsensical from a policy standpoint.” - Richard Carmona, american physician and nurse. This is exactly why Planned Parenthood should not be defunded. It offers many things from contraception, abortion, cancer screenings and preventions along with much more. Also, if they were to be defunded and abortions could no longer go on, many more unplanned pregnancies would happen and the cost of welfare would escalate a lot.
Rape happens (pause), health issues occur (pause), and so do teen pregnancies(pause). Our bodies, our lives, our right to decide. Worldwide, 47,000 women die a year from unsafe abortions (pause). Anything from a simple herbal tea to a prescribed drug and occasionally even going to Mexico to have it done illegally.
Abortion is to terminate the life of a fetus, an unborn child, but not is one only ending the life of a human being, but it is also hurting the life of another, the mother. The mother is also being affected, whether they want to admit it or not. In the short essay Curious by River Teeth, Teeth mentions different concepts on how curiosity comes up in many different forms and how it is a way to show eagerness, to know or to learn something new. Teeth mentions Charles Darwin stating “ Darwin so hard on curiosity, was relentless at looking at the big picture, of looking at creatures through time, of challenging categories, and turning the mirror back on humans.”
