There are those who are pro-life, seeing abortion as totally wrong under any circumstances, and there are those who are pro-choice, viewing the mother's right to make decisions over her own body. There are laws in some states that limit when abortions can be done, and there are laws that are trying to limit abortion all t... ... middle of paper ... ... days there is a type of birth control that a rape victim can take to stop the pregnancy. But many pro-lifers are against it, because they say it is actually a form of early abortion. Even though it is taken after the rape has occurred, doctors still consider it a contraceptive and this is the only form of birth control that can help after a rape has happened. If abortion were made illegal again, women would return to or back alley abortions.
“There are only two ways of thinking about abortion: either a woman has a right to decide not to be pregnant anymore, or other people think they have a right to make her decision for her (Carmon, Irin).” It is very difficult for a mother to have a child as a rape victim. That day when that cruel man took her innocence will continuously play out and the child will contribute to a memory of this horrific time. The woman who has been raped will not want the child as a memory. Being raped is a terrible trauma as is and a raped victim should be able to receive an abortion The individual did not choose to be raped. A woman being raped and then forced to carry the baby until delivery could be tragic for both mother and child.
However, others feel that a woman should have a voice and have the right to choose to keep the child or not and that it is not murder until the baby is born. Majority of individuals who believe that abortion is bad say that the fetus is human who is partly being formed and to have an abortion is considered to be murder. For the people who think an abortion is ok, say that it’s not considered murder unless the child is born. I believe that abortion should be seen in which the stage the fetus is in. if the fetus is in an early stage of pregnancy it is not considered murder, but if the fetus has already began to develop into a larger fetus then it is indeed considered to be murder.
It is only fair to say that women should be given the same choice. If one does not want to hold the responsibilities of a child then she should be able to have the choice of abortion in her options. Because contraceptives fail, and because they are ... ... middle of paper ... ...e if they were not conceived.In summary, a woman's right to choose can justify abortion, but it should be banned because it is immoral and life begins at conception. Women have been given the right to have an abortion under the United States Constitution, but the people that fight for the unborn child's rights are still protesting this right. Pro-life activists claim that it is immoral because it is simply defined as murder.
Women who decide to have an illegal abortion get their life on the risk. They fear of getting disrespect from the society. In the case of rapes, the baby reminds them the incident.

Abortion prevents from unsafe illegal abortion which is very dangerous to the lives of women.
A woman should have the right to choose if she wants to have an abortion. Your viewpoint does not acknowledge a woman's right to freedom of choice. I agree with your opinion, that the fetus is a human and that it has a right to life and that is why I believe in early abortions. I feel that your viewpoint would cause many problems. One problem is that your viewpoint allows no abortions, that allows no consideration for the mother of the family that would be effected by that child.
Maybe mistakes were made in the past, and now another person has to suffer because of those mistakes. This wouldn’t be necessary if only the pregnancy could be aborted. Today, that’s a choice women can legally make, but if abortion was made illegal, a new baby would come into the world who would unlikely ever know anything except suffering.” Today in our society every women have the right to choice to an abortion, but if any woman realize that is taking away a life to an innocent human that do not anything yet will make them feel bad. Furthermore, another reason that people believe is that abortion should be legalized because everyone believe that any woman should have the chance to make their own decisions in their life, especially when regarding such a personal subject as abortions. Also, the government should not have control over a woman 's body or a family 's decision because they only can decide if they having the baby or they going to
I think that if the woman became pregnant through consensual sex, even if she did not want to have a child, abortion is wrong regardless of the contraceptive precautions that were exercised. In the terribly unfortunate case of rape I feel it is more than understandable for the woman to want to abort the fetus. Seeing how the fetus had no control over the situation it seems that they should be given the chance at life. Although it is very unfortunate for the woman to have to be in such a situation I think it would be in the best interest for everyone to have the child. Maybe someday the unwanted child could make a contribution to all of mankind.
The fetus inside the woman's body may be alive, but we can’t tell whether or not it will become a potential human (Alcorn). Even though science is a major part of abortion, we never really know when human life begins (Alcorn). However, that doesn’t mean it’s okay to abort a child. Many believe having an unplanned pregnancy is a curse, but I believe it is a blessing in disguise. I believe that abortion should be illegal because it is equal to murder, you can always place the child up for adoption, and abortion can affect a woman mentally and physically.
Abortion shouldn’t be used as a form of contraception, nor should women’s lives be sacrificed to bear an infant before morally ready to commit. If a woman is raped, and the outcome incurs pregnancy, then abortion is an alternate form of controlling the unwanted pregnancy. Abortion should stand as only the woman’s choice, never as a decision adverse to Pro-Life activists. Pro-Choice advocates seem to vindicate abortion, accepting that abortion is not considered a form of birth control, but merely a method of controlling the woman and fetus future. Women are the sole determinate persons in stating if they are capable of withholding a full term pregnancy.
