If the ethics of abortion does not enter a woman’s mind, maybe the side effects of it will. If they do not care about their unborn child, they may care about themselves. If every woman considering an abortion knew what would happen afterward, they would possibly be deterred from their decision. Bibliography: Works Cited Reardon, David C.

Abortion has been always a huge controversial debate among the past years and until now in the United states and in Oklahoma in particular. Since the US supreme court gave its decision about abortions in Roe V Wade case in 1973, Oklahoma state kept restricting abortions by putting new rules for pregnant women to follow before any procedure regarding to it. From that time the percentage of abortions done in nonhospital clinics rose from 51% in 1974 to 61% in 1976, and reached 95% in 2008 (Aksel, sarp, et al, 2013). However, there should be unlimited restrictions on abortion in Oklahoma because each woman should have complete control over her body. Woman in Oklahoma should have a complete control over her body because woman have the right to make a choice about her body, and no one have the right to force her to keep a fetus that she doesn’t want for any reason.
The medications work to break down the placenta or lining of the uterus that sustains pregnancy and fetal growth, interferes with the cell growth and multiplication process and causes the cervix or opening of the uterus to soften resulting in fetal expulsion.

Because of this case from 1973 through 2005, millions of legal abortions were performed. For a better cause and to avoid public protestants towards this issue, the government of Nebraska and Oklahoma had signed two specific laws about abortion (“Procon”). Although abortion has been protected by the government, many people- like me- still hold a strong belief that says:” Abortion is illegal.” Abortion is not just a moral or religious issue. It has an impact in medical field as well. It’s the cause for a disease to which name that bring the depression to each and every women on Earth- breast cancer is what it’s called.
This essay will evaluate advantages and disadvantages, moral, religious and ethical aspects of selective abortion, which promotes women’s well-being, physical and mental health. Surgical abortion is an abortion, carried out for different purposes, and accompanied or caused by the death of the fetus. The procedure of the deliberating termination of a human pregnancy is known since ancient times. Kapparis Konstantinos (2002) wrote in his book “Abortion in the Ancient world” that the word abortion came frоm thе Lаtіn “abortus” where “ab” means “amiss” and “oriri” means “likely to be born, arise”. According to thе book of Christopher Tietze and Sarah Lewit (1969) “Abortion” which could be one of the earliest records of an abortive technique this surgical operation goes back about 4,600 years to an ancient Chinese work.
This often challenged subject has many aspects. The main ideas that I researched where whether or not having an abortion leads to a higher risk for mental health issues, whether or not “post-abortion syndrome” is a relevant medical term and if it actually affects a substantial number of women, and whether having an abortion at as a teen puts the individual at a higher risk for these psychological issues to develop. With concrete proof due to many studies and research, it has become apparent that though any time a woman chooses to abort her pregnancy there are chances that mental health issues will surface, but there is no guarantee that long term damage will occur. First and foremost, I researched whether or not terminating a pregnancy has a significant effect on a woman’s mental health. Since the debate came to light during the Reagan era, many researchers have disagreed on the conclusion of this subject.
First of all, abortion is a method to terminate a pregnancy by using medicine or surgery to remove the fetus from the uterus. It always has been a part of human culture since long time ago. One of the most common reasons of having abortion is because women who had children are young. Or, it is because of relationship, academic, working, financial issues. In the United States, the issue of abortion is extremely controversial that matters to not only medical field but also political and social fields.
(paraphrase) (4) The modern world has manipulated the people into feeling comfortable doing wrong things to feel right. They are unaware of the risks taken by killing an innocent unborn. Aborting a child may also cause various negative effects on the women on different levels such as physical, psychological and social. One of the most common effects of abortion is on women’s physical health. Whether it is a medical abortion or surgical abortion, the obvious effects are infections, serious complications and sometimes, death “Misoprostol” is an abortion pill that is used by the majority of women.
Abortion has become an issue Americans feel strongly about, and it has created enormous debates within the United States. It has been around for years, and is certainly not a new option for women who find themselves in an unwanted pregnancy. Even though terminations have become safer for women, there are still strong arguments against abortion. Whether one is for or against abortion depends on a combination of beliefs, as well as pressures from society. While some believe in the right to choose, others consider it as murder; in both cases the turmoil of abortion has an extreme affect on a woman.
