Abortion Disregards the Rights of the Unborn Fetus Abortion is one of the most controversial issue people are faced with. People stand strong for both sides. Will it be possible to ever reach a solution? Is it necessary to take away a women’s right to choose. At what stage of the fetus’s life can it be considered a person. [A husband and wife are married for some years have a stable income and have been trying to get pregnant, and finally after talking about a baby they decide they are ready to have one, and when the couple finds out she’s pregnant they rejoice and begin telling family and getting the room ready. Then finally after the nine-month wait and many doctors’ visits the baby has arrived and goes home to a happy mother and father. However that situation is the most ideal but most pregnancies aren’t as wonderful as that happy couples. Studies show that 60% of all pregnancies are unplanned (Joffe, 29). We aren’t saying that all those pregnancies will be aborted many will carry out the pregnancy and have a healthy and wonderful child but there are some cases were abortion is the only option, and women should be able to make that decision. Anti-abortionists cast women into two category’s victims who are coerced by others around them and deviants who have little difficulty with the abortion decision which is made casual for convince sake (Joyce, 7). However many studies show that the “typical abortion patient is a mentally stable women who makes the decision for abortion within a few days after the discovery of the pregnancy and comes through the procedure virtually unscathed (joffe, 8).” If what Joffe is saying is true which is must because her theory is the same that was in several review articles form 1990-92... ... middle of paper ... ...l life begins at conception. However due to their biology women and fetuses have a complicated situation. The growing fetus while potentially a human being is totally dependent. The women is not. If nature had intended life to begin at conception a fetus would be able to survive at conception. Obviously it can not. Many suggest an option to the question at what point does life begin would be better asked at what point sustain itself. It is many people’s hope that each and every baby born be loved and wanted. Hopefully some day pro-life and pro-choice advocates put their energies in finding solutions. Imagine a day when aborted fetuses are reimplanted into the waiting room of women who desire to bring babies into a world where they will be wanted. In summary until a fetus can support its own life people will continue to support a women’s right to choose.
