The other 98% was for risk of 'psychological damage' to the mother. The main arguments for abortion, or pro-choice arguments are that a foetus is not truly alive- whereas there can be no argument that the mother is- therefore is not the mother's life worth more and more important? This is one of the main debates that surround the controversy of abortion- when does life really begin? At conception, during pregnancy or at birth? Because of this, each side can always say that the foetus is or isn't alive and that you are or aren't killing a baby through abortion.
While some people argue that abortion is a right and should remain legal, I believe that there are too many flaws with their claims to protect abortion for it to be preserved. Pro-life groups, or those who promote the legal protection of unborn children, support their views by laying a foundation that explicitly highlights the deliberate killing of a life. Abortion desensitizes society to a quiet form of violence, often calling the pro-choice movement a silent holocaust. These fetuses cannot speak for themselves, cannot shout for help when being surgically removed from the world as they know it. Women who have abortions tend to develop issues ranging from those that deal with emotional, psychological, physical, and mental damage.
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).
There are many things you can do to avoid having an abortion and avoid getting pregnant at an unwanted time. Like mentioned before, adoption is a great alternative to abortion and there are many birth control methods used to prevent unwanted pregnancies in the first place. Many religions are against abortion and women who get abortions are taking away a child’s life and the child doesn’t have anyway to protect themselves. The poor child doesn’t get to live their life because the mother decides to terminate them. Is it really their choice?
Looking at Abortion Abortion is 'the intentional destruction of a foetus or the inducing of a premature expulsion from the womb to cause its death'. This definition sounds rather barbaric and it leads us to ask who could support such an idea. In looking at the case for abortion, there are a number of groups in support of this such as the National Abortion Campaign who want us to realise that usually the woman who is having the baby is best qualified to judge what is the right decision. There is a large difference of opinion over when life begins and it is argued that a minority of people have no right to impose their views on the rest of us. A foetus is only a potential human life in that it is not fully developed and there can be no argument about the humanity of the woman carrying the child.
My personal opinion is that people should not have abortions, but I do believe that mothers-to-be should have the right to have them since we do have the resources available. It is easy to say one way or the other on the issue of abortion, but I think the key thing is to be able to back up your... ... middle of paper ... ... really no right or wrong answer to the issue of abortion, you either are pro-life, pro-choice, or maybe like me, somewhere in between. There is no way that every person is ever going to share the same views on this very controversial issue. People just need to listen to ideas, do research and try to get their own opinions while knowing what they truly believe in. Personally after doing all of this research I have kind of went back and forth on the way I believe.
There are thousands of people that are waiting to adopt newborns, therefore if there is not a health concern for the mother or the child, the abortion should not be allowed. I believe that this would teach our society to practice safe sex and to administer birth control more freely. So, abortion, legal or not legal? That is our question. Thinking critically, I believe that it is necessary to be a legal procedure only with limitations however.
Some abortions are so severe that they can kill you. Most of the abortions don’t necessarily have to protect the mothers health since she wants to kill the baby. If the mother doesn’t want to baby so badly than she should put it up for adoption. Majority of the abortions performed in the United States are done in an unskilled way, which leads to either woman dying or having horrendous side effects such as the inability to have children. The woman who is having the abortion should be responsible to prevent a pregnancy from the beginning of the sexual relationship.
They argue that abortion is a grave offend against God and his creation. They also say that it is an immoral and unsafe procedure that can result in serious medical complications. According to abortion’s advocates who think that it is a woman’s right to do whatever she wants with her body, abortion must be a legal practice. In... ... middle of paper ... ...afe medical procedure but physicians have found that it can be a cause of many medical complications such as an ectopic pregnancy, or a miscarriage and even a cause of breast cancer in some cases. Beyond doubt, abortion is a wrong practice that punishes the unborn child who hasn’t committed a crime; in its place, it is the perpetrator who should be punished for murdering a human being indifferently, that must be considered as a first degree murder.
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.
