Everyday millions of Americans debate if Abortion should be legal or illegal. In my opinion, I believe that this action is murder. Statistics show that the number of Abortions that happen every year since 2013 is 664,435 (“Reproductive”). Without miscarriages around 16.7% of pregnancies go through abortion. This rate went down 1.9% since 2010.
Before Roe v. wade the number of deaths from illegal abortions was around 5000 and in the 50s and 60s the number of illegal abortions ranged from 200,000 to 1.2 million per year. These illegal abortions pose major health risks to the life of the woman including damage to the bladder, intestines as well as rupturing of the uterus. The choice to become a mother must be given to the woman most importantly because it’s her body, her health, and she will be taking on a great responsibility. A woman’s choice to choose abortion should not be restricted by anyone; there are multiple reasons why abortion will be the more sensible decision for the female.
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.
It also states, “ Worldwide, complications in pregnancy are the “number one killer” of girls and young women aged 15-19, the report says, adding to that 50,000 teenage girls and young women die during pregnancy and childbirth every year, in many cases because their bodies are not ready to bear children” (NP, World Health Organization). Pregnant teens also have a higher chance of becoming anemic, which can affect the baby’s development. Teen mothers are more likely to have premature babies and depending on how premature the baby is, it can
They can range anywhere from $0-950. The amount someone has to pay for their abortion depends on many things: the person getting it and their body, where someone lives, and then how far along they are when they want to get the abortion. Getting a surgical abortion definitely can cost way more than getting the abortion pill. Some insurances are not even able to help cover the cost of the abortion because of laws that have been made. There is no health insurance plan that is state-run that can cover the cost of abortion unless it is because of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is at risk.
The most unsafe thing to do is to have an abortion because you have the risk of dying. A NCBI article says, “Some 68,000 women die of unsafe abortion annually, making it one of the leading causes of maternal mortality (13%). Of the women who survive unsafe
The rhetoric mainly concentrates on the use of false information to indicate how more than 30 percent of women regret having an abortion. Nevertheless, statistics indicates that 95 percent of women do not regret abortion. Pro-lifers use narratives, such as the story of Jane Roe, the plaintiff in the case of Roe v. Wade, who once considered having an abortion (Linda 35). They also use extreme tactics, such as showing the woman an ultrasound to influence her into having the child. They also offer psychological counseling regarding the negative effects of abortion including mental illness.
Not only that, but the possibility exists that the teenager then has a chance at becoming victim to psychological issues because the decision to get an abortion is frightening. To go along with that is the fact that abortions are still a procedure and with all procedures there are dangers of complications. That is why I believe that children under the age of eighteen should not be allowed to receive an abortion without their parents’ consent. From the mental side of this dilemma there are many aspects to look at.
It might finally give rise to the psychological problem that does harm to their mental health development. In addition, it might cause deterioration in the family relationship. When parents are in complete control over the daily life of their children, they would cause resentment towards their parents. Family conflicts would eventually exist and children might become more rebellious which is contrary to the original objectives of applying authoritarian parenting. Therefore, it suggests that this parenting style is not effective and authoritative parenting would be a great substitute to replace
The various amounts of cases represent there is in need of more investigation during the trial of the custody of the child. Emphasizing, if the father was reported for domestic violence, the child shouldn’t be living with someone who will do harm to the child. It questions the logic behind the court’s decision about the custody, causing them to rethink and thoroughly examine the case. Bartlow states that, “they are deliberately undertaken by one parent (in most cases, the mother) to ‘alienate’ the child from the other parent (generally, the father)”. The author argues that the “Parental Alienation Syndrome” is biased and generalized tactic
There are mixed reviews about the choice of Planned Parenthood. They have eight million activists, supporters, and donors nationwide (Who We Are, 2014). However, some people still have an issue with how strongly Planned Parenthood support contraception, or abortion. They believe that every woman should have access to the full range reproductive health care services, including access to and legal abortions (Our Issues: Where We Stand, 2015). 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.
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.
