But, have you ever thought about how dangerous abortion is to the baby and yourself? Have you done research about it? See what clinic is the very best and how much will it cost? Before you think about all these questions ask yourself first. Would I regret this decision later on?
Abortion is one of the most controversial and highly debatable issues in the United States today. This hot topic has put both the supporting and opposing sides in an uproar to defend their positions. In abortion, a fetus is deliberately terminated from the woman’s womb. Though there are several different methods of abortion, they all aim to rid of the potential child. When carefully reading descriptions of the techniques to abort a fetus, one does not shrug it off their shoulders and write it off as morally acceptable.
Advocates of Pro Life are consistently perusing abortion, stating that it is morally wrong, and unethical in all matters, even if the pregnancy is inadvertent. There are factors remaining in today’s society that are very forthcoming and are unanticipated by women in the prevention of pregnancy. If medical doctors abolished the procedure, or if the government made it even more difficult to obtain an abortion, we wouldn’t be supporting the righteousness of many women in the U.S. today. If contraception, in all forms, were 100% effective, then abortion could be abolished. Until medical research and testing finds a foolproof contraceptive, abortion is morally permissible because of obvious factors that are uncontrollable.
Induced abortion is when the foetus is deliberately removed in some way or another. Abortion is allowed to be carried out if consent is given by two doctors and that continuing the pregnancy would involve risk to the physical and mental health of the mother or that continuing would involve risk to the physical and mental health of any existing children in the family. Abortion is a controversial issue because there are so many arguments for and against whether abortion is right or wrong. The following are some of the main arguments: - Religions: - Some people think it is up to god and god alone to decide if someone is to die or not. God created us and it should be up to him to end our life.
Whether it is mentally or physically. Although I believe abortion is a terrible thing and should be illegal, many people believe that if you think about it, scientifically abortion isn’t wrong. Scientists say that “The unborn is an embryo or a fetus that is just a simple blob of tissue” (Alcorn). Science takes a major part in abortion. 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).
For example, when pro-choice activists support abortions due to unwanted pregnancies, the activists are not rallying behind the idea of sexual incompetency (pregnancies due to lack of birth control). Rather, they are supporting the idea that women have the right to choose what to do with their own bodies. In order to understand these opposing views, justifications and condemnations, on abortion, it can basically be divided into three categories. These categories are based upon the reasons for which abortions are carried out, and include congenital defects, rape, and economics. Congenital defects, is when deformities within the baby are detected during an early stage of a pregnancy.
Others say that a life is a life, no matter how small. In the United States, abortion is a controversial issue because it is a broad and complex subject that touches ethical, social, and legal issues. Although others believe a woman has the right to choose what she does with her body, abortion should not be legal because there is no consensus whether a fetus is a human, and there are other alternatives than abortion. Many people try to justify their actions for abortions, insisting that it is in the best interests of the child. The reasons women have abortions are not simple and can be difficult to understand, they can cover a broad range from rape, deformity, not being able to provide for the child, in another relationship, or unplanned pregnancy.
These supporting arguments further bolster the idea that abortion should not only be illegal, but it is a form of sin across numerous religions. Another argument commonly used, as a justification as to why abortion should not remain legal is that if abortion was not made readily available most women with unwarranted pregnancy would be encouraged to choose the human and moral adoption route. Paradoxically, there are numerous women who cannot or have difficulty conceiving a child of their own. Due to... ... middle of paper ... ...he child or to giving it up for adoption. Which should out-weigh the number of women who would opt to take an illegal route of terminating a pregnancy.
“Pro-life” believers do take instances into consideration where an abortion may be performed, such as rape and or incest abortion. They believe that life begins at contraception which would mean that anyone who decides to have an abortion would be murdering their potential child. Pro-life believers feel as though abortion should be illegal and that it is also immoral. Unless it is health related, they do not take the mother into consideration. They believe that at the moment the mother consented to sexual intercourse she takes on the responsibility of giving birth.
Where I stand on the issue of abortion is somewhat confusing to me even sometimes. I do not think that it is right to kill a baby, but on the other hand I would rather see a child be aborted than it thrown in the trash after birth or abused and neglected by the parents. I believe that there are many situations that can occur that will factor into whether this procedure is just or not. Abortions can occur in several different ways. Spontaneous abortion, or miscarriage, occurs when the embryo fails to develop, when there is complete or incomplete expulsion of the procedures of conception – the embryo or fetus, and placenta – or when the fetus dies prior to 20 weeks from the woman’s last period.
