They have some alternatives: (1) have the child and raise it (2) have the child, then give it up for adoption (3) get an abortion. Sadly, many women choose alternative three, unaware of what they’re getting themselves into. Abortion is very cruel to the baby and even harms the mother. It is murder!There are many different procedures for abortions, all gruesome and pain inflicting on the baby. Suction Aspiration (vacuum curettage) makes up for 98% of first trimester abortions.
Abortion Abortion on demand should be legal for many reasons. In countries where abortion is absolutely not tolerated it is a fact that women continue to receive abortions, from unqualified back-street abortionists or the village massage abortionist. Both of these individuals risk putting the woman through painful and potentially fatal tortures just in an attempt to abort a child. Each year 84 000 women die worldwide from failed abortion attempts. Because of anti-abortion legislation women avoid going to the hospital, often until it is too late, to avoid prosecution from police.
Still in today’s time, people argue and debate whether abortion should be legal or not. Abortion is a controversial issue which many people believe is evil because it is taking an innocent human life. Killing a child is unethical, and completely unfair to the fetus that is the victim. According to Margaret Sykes from her article “Rape Justifies Abortion,” “If a 14-year-old [rape victim]…can’t have an abortion without being dragged through the courts…and having people trying to stop her left and right, who can?” (Sykes 130) Sykes believed that the 14 year old girl who had been raped had every right to abort her child. She believed that abortion should be legal for rape victims no matter what stage of the pregnancy they were in.
Immigrant women should leave the abortion method to medical experts regardless of personal problems that might arise later on. Abortion is defined as the removal of a fetus from the uterus, resulting in the death of the fetus (“The American Heritage Dictionary,” 2000). A woman would abort their baby because they cannot provide the basic necessities for the baby. However, in immigrant mothers, they fear of being caught as an illegal immigrant at the Hospital. There are also religions that forbid abortion as a sign of shamefulness, so women would rather induce their own abortion to make it seem it was a natural miscarriage.
Many women decide to have an abortion because they are scared to raise a baby, and scared of the future of the child. Some women want to abort because they get raped and they don’t want to have such a large responsibility without the available support. But whatever reason it is, it is never acceptable to kill an innocent pre born child. Some people would say it’s the woman’s own body, so it’s her choice if she wants to abort. Abortion is a difficult thing to do; a traumatic pregnancy is related to injuries and death.
Other women may not want children because of the money, time, and responsibility needed to take care of a child. If in the future abortions are made illegal the amount of deaths because of unsafe abortion methods used when a women is desperate for one. “God send us someone to cure cancer, AIDS, etc., etc.” “I did but you forced her to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, forcing her to become a single mother with limited income, having to sacrifice her college dreams in order to provide for her unwanted child.”
This procedure is the mother and father’s decision to make to choose to not give birth to the baby. Abortion should be made illegal not just in the United States but also worldwide because abortion can cause a lot complication, it takes the live of innocents, it has effects and permanent damage in people’s lives and it can also increase the rate of death. One of the primary reasons that abortion should be illegal is that it causes a lot of complications for women to have health problems that can lead to death. One of the things that cause complication to women’s health is having unsanitary abortion; women tend to receive abortion from people who are unskilled. (Shahbazi).
The topic of abortion has been a controversial issue in America and each side cannot come to an agreement. Many people believe women should be able to make their own decision because it is their own body and because the baby is not born yet so it is not a human. While others believe once the fetus is formed, it is considered a human and has individual rights, and that aborting that baby is murder. Today, about twenty one percent of pregnancies will end with an abortion. Abortion must be illegal unless the safety of the women is in jeopardy, or due to rape or incest.
Justifying Abortion Abortion is murder Rape, incest Life is Gods gift, we should not destroy Mother is unable to care for baby. e.g. very young, mental or physical health problems/ We have no right to take a unique life, everyone should have an equal chance to live. To save the mothers life There are possibly many other arguments for both sides of the argument but most of them are so closely linked that I would just be repeating myself. Rape and incest is traumatic for the woman, but think if that woman had to keep that child, a constant reminder of a horrible event.
An abortion is legal if two doctors agree that one of the following circumstances exists: ü There is risk to the life of the mother if the pre... ... middle of paper ... ...n child). Woman has control over choosing an illegal abortion that they know can be harmful. The unborn has absolutely no control when the mother chooses to abort. In addition abortion is a surgical procedure, and even though it is legal it still puts many women at risk. Many women suffer post-abortion complications, such as severe muscle damage plus damage to the uterine wall, which can lead to scarring, future miscarriages, entopic pregnancies.
