Abortion prevents from unsafe illegal abortion which is very dangerous to the lives of women. It also prevents from the crime and child abuse from the society. It even prevents females from the depression and mental trauma. Hence, women should also have the reproductive rights and should be able to choose whether she wants a baby or not. When everyone seeks out for freedom, women should get the freedom to decide.
Without a woman's right to do what she chooses with her body, her freedom and ... ... middle of paper ... ...nking of herself, she also thinks on behalf of her baby. Abortion clinics do not make the choice easier, nor do they force the woman into the surgery. People who are against abortion have the choice not to have one. It is not fair to take away the choice of people who do want one. The reason I believe so strongly about the abortion issue is because sometimes circumstances beyond a woman’s control present themselves.
Anti-choice proposals to ban abortions for “sex-selection” or “birth-control” are smokescreens designed to shift the focus of the debate away from this issue and trivialize the seriousness with which millions of women make this highly personal decision. Any government restriction on the reasons for which women may obtain legal abortions violates the core of this right and could force all women to publicly justify their reasons for seeking abortion. Most people agree that abortion should be a rare procedure. To accomplish that ideal, our society must proactively, by providing resources and support, offer pregnant women the hope that carrying their babies to term is not the end of their plans and dreams. Then their difficult decisions would really be true choices vice acts of desperation.
Abortion is a tough decision in its self, women should not have to deal with the worry of the being convicted or condemned because of her choice. There also have been studies done involving “unwanted children” they end up suffering from physical and psychological damage done by the parent. There is also the issue of the relationship between a husband and wife, especially if the woman was raped, the husband has a hard time dealing with the pregnancy itself and once the child is born the husband does not treat the child as if it was his. Then you have the psychological damage to the woman after being raped, itself. Some may argue that it is morally wrong to have an abortion and a crime.
A woman who does not feel welcome or safe may not seek medical care, even if she decides to have an abortion. Some women "terminate their pregnancies by whatever means are available to them, even if it is against the law, unsafe, and might result in complications" (Oduro, 2014, p.920). This demonstrates the importance of respecting a patient 's autonomy, as the patient who has decided to end a pregnancy will do so without assistance if denied the right to do so safely with medical professionals. Though some may consider the fetus to be a patient it is the mother that is able to make decisions and who must be cared for as well. Shunning women asking for abortions "defies our very role as a nurse to prevent illness, promote and restore health and alleviate suffering" (Smyth, 2016, p.117) as it will cause the woman more distress and possibly have a negative effect on her
Those with strong religious and moral objections to abortion argue that the rights of the unborn child override those of the mother. I think that the woman should be allowed to make her own choice, as it her body and it is her life that will be affected by the birth of the child. Abortion should be legal to those who want or need it. Though, to prevent unnecessary deaths, there should be a rigorous screening/questioning program to ensure that the mother really doesn't want the child, or to make sure she knows all the alternatives. I think it should be the mother's choice of whether to have the baby or not.
It is not the baby’s fault if the mother did not take care about her actions the baby has the right to live. Although some may argue that abortion should not be banned because some women feel that they are not ready to have a child. The truth is that abortion should be banned because it robs a human of life. It is a dangerous act and it violates the civil rights. One reason women should not abort is because it
I feel this is a just action because with certain cases of abortion such as unplanned, rape, etc. I believe the fetus does have a right to life, but if the mother does not want to carry out her pregnancy then she could at least leave it for adoption or find someone who is willing to care for her child. She also adds to her claim that it is wrong for a mother to have an abortion in the last trimester of her pregnancy due to, “a vacation.” I whole heartedly agree with Thomson because again, if the pregnancy is causing financial instability, doubts on caring for the child due to lack of education, or detrimental problems to her physical and mental health, the mother should be allowed to have an abortion. Then Thomson uses the seed/person case to support her argument where if you left your window open and a seed was to fly in and take root on your carpet and the seed grows into a person/plant, have you granted permission for that person/plant the right to use your room? This is where I start to find Thomson 's example a bit unrealistic.
Women may consent to un-protected sex because if they become pregnant they figure they can always just go get an abortion. Pro-life supporters believe that abortions are a simple way out of a very complicated problem. However, the illegalization of abortion may bring on many consequences. If someone falls victim of rape and becomes pregnant it is not fair to make them keep the child. The mother would of course love the child, but with that would come a form of hate.
Well not late for them but for the baby it is because the female has to make this tragic decision. Few women don’t want to take on the commitment and become a mother. Others are afraid of the lifestyle they will live. Females would not face this climax if they were careful when having sex. Opposing arguments point out the advantages of having an abortion, but the disadvantages outweigh them.
