Abortion - Glasgow, Scotland. It's cold outside. I'm thinking about a problem. One group of people trying to force their beliefs on others, based on religion. And it seems as though we're regressing. Above, a helicopter flies by. If it continues on its course, it will shortly be over Ireland, where as of this writing, the powers that be are deciding if a 14-year-old girl who was raped by the father of one of her friends should be allowed to leave for Britain to obtain an abortion. She's been ordered not to leave the country for nine months....   [tags: essays research papers] 665 words

Abortion: Where Has Morality Gone? - Joan Didion's essay, "On Morality," poses the question, "What is 'right' and what is 'wrong,' what is 'good' and what 'evil'?" (182). In today's society, often times many people do not even consider this question before taking action. Morality has become a gray area in which morality can scarcely be defined. For instance, Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines morality as "the quality of being in accord with standards of right or good conduct." However, everyone has a different opinion of right and wrong....   [tags: abortion argumentative persuasive argument] 968 words

A Case For The Pro-Life Stance On Abortion - A Case for the Pro-Life Stance on Abortion Over 40 million babies have been legally aborted since 1972. In 1972, the case of Roe versus Wade was brought to the Supreme Court and it is one of the most controversial issues involving women's civil right. The case dealt with the right to choose to have an abortion to end a pregnancy. Most feminist groups supported this case since women felt it was their body and their choice whether to have a baby or not. It is not a choice it is a child, and it is wrong and cruel....   [tags: Abortion Argumentative Persuasive] 932 words

This is nature's first step in its attempt to continue the human race.

Abortion - Women Should Stop Having Sex - Abortion - Women Should Stop Having Sex Somewhere amidst the abortion debates of the last quarter century, the real issue has been lost. The focus has become too religious for a country that has separated church and state. Therefore, I won't argue the religious rights and wrongs of abortion. No answers can be derived until we focus on what the law and our citizens do value, because this is how laws are changed. American laws hold sacred the value of human rights....but when do a woman's end, and a child's begin....   [tags: abortion argumentative persuasive argument] 554 words

Partial Birth Abortion Act November 5, 2003 - Partial Birth Abortion Act November 5, 2003 On November 5, 2003 President Bush placed a national ban on partial birth abortions. This was an act that many felt was outdated. The same proposal was brought upon President Clinton in 1995, but he vetoed it saying it was a birth mother’s right to choose the fate of her unborn child. A partial birth abortion is the process of removing a fetus from the mother just prior to its birth. This procedure is not painless for the mother, or the fetus. The actual procedure involves removing the child limb by limb from the womb....   [tags: Government Politics Abortion Essays] 1136 words

Abortion Is Not the Answer - Abortion is removing of an unborn child from its mother?s womb before its birth. As a pro-life advocate, I believe that abortion is morally and ethically wrong and should be stopped. Having an abortion is not the answer and is in fact worsening the problem. Victims can suffer serious consequences either physically or psychologically. Some victims who have abortion suffer life threatening complications such as heavy bleeding, fever and infection. It can also lead to problems in a future pregnancy, such as miscarriages, premature births, and children born with handicaps, because any problem or change in a woman's reproductive organs may affect the development of her children....   [tags: essays research papers] 435 words

WIN and Abortion - WIN and Abortion It stands to reason that abortionists, as a whole, commit malpractice more often than doctors practicing legitimate medicine, because the industry is largely unregulated. Inspections of abortion facilities after a patient death typically reveal horrific health and safety violations. Patients are herded in and out and rarely are seen, much less examined, by the doctor before the abortion begins. The patient's medical history and any health problems that might influence treatment are known only to the extent the patient is able or willing to reveal this information on an intake form....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics] 632 words

Abortion is Wrong - Abortion is Wrong      For years many different people from many different walks of life have had different opinions about abortion. For some abortion is never wrong, for others under certain circumstances it is O.K., and for still some others it is never right. Abortion is wrong not only because it goes against what God has said, but also because most women are so rushed into and unsure about their decision they regret it later in life. Although the Bible ; the old testament used by Jewish believers; both the new and old testaments used by Christian believers, does not specifically deal with abortion it does place validity on life before birth....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Against Abortion - Abortion to me is murder. It doesn't matter on the circumstances at all. The only time that I believe that abortions are necessary is when the mother's life is in a medical danger because of it. I know that a lot of people think that it's okay to have an abortion if the mother was raped. I don't believe that. I believe that if a girl gets raped, she did something to put herself in that position. Now, I'm not saying that it is her fault completely. I can definitely relate to this.

Abortion. Sin or Not? - The Bible is often time misquoted when it comes to the issue of abortion. In fact the word of God makes it clear to us that abortion is not a sin, it's quite clear that to believe otherwise is nothing short of idolatry and blasphemy and those are definitely sins. One of the most beautiful chapters in the Bible is Psalms 139. "For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; or I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works: and that my soul knoweth right well....   [tags: essays research papers] 452 words
