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.
Abortion is inhumane and the rights of the unborn child are not being protected if an abortion takes place. If two people conceive a child, not wanting that child, they should still be responsible for their actions and not have the option to kill their innocent baby. The unborn child has rights like everyone else, and these rights should not be ignored because of the parents' bad choices. Unborn children cannot speak or protect themselves, but if they were able to, those babies would fight for their right to live. There is a huge debate going on around the world on whether the parents of an unborn child should have the right to have an abortion, or the unborn child should have the right to live.
Abortion: A Controversial Issue One of the major controversial issues confronting the society today is abortion. I choose abortion as the topic of discussion since it contradicts my values and beliefs. Abortion is the extraction of the human fetus from the mother’s womb with an intention to end the life of that fetus prior to its natural birth. The controversy surrounding abortion is whether it should be legalized or not? In my opinion, abortion is morally and ethically wrong because it leads to violation of human rights.
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.
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.
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. Pro-choice campaigners also say that doctors have no better right than the mothers to deem whether and abortion is necessary. Additionally, they say that if abortions were made illegal, thousands of women would risk their lives in dirty back... ... middle of paper ... ... they are physically or mentally handicapped- they can come to terms with it- why can't we? I have noticed that all the arguments against abortion are impersonal and are based on the idea that life doesn't start until birth, but with medical advances a baby born as early as 24 weeks can survive in the world. So since birth is so unpredictable, that cannot be seen as the start of life.
According to the definition, abortion is the termination of a fetus up to six months old. As for my view, I am strongly against the abortion or so called Planned Parenthood because I see this not only legally unacceptable but also morally wrong. Abortion should not be legalized because it is the killing of an innocent unborn child and can have a serious impact on the mother’s physical and psychological health. Abortion is one of the most discussed topics in Congress and every community in America and throughout the world. Many of us don’t notice but the laws regarding abortion have some effects on every one of us one way or the other.
Perspective on Abortion Issues pertaining to abortion have always been contentious in both, the contemporary and traditional human society. Indeed, so emotive has the issue been that it has become one of the topics that have to be and are discussed in politics. Abortion is often defined as the deliberate termination of a pregnancy prior to its attainment of full term and with no intention whatsoever of keeping the fetus. In essence, it always results in the death of the unborn child, which explains why there has been all-ranging controversy. Questions have often been raised about the legality of abortion with different sides making assertions on why it should or should not be legal.
Since our lives end when our brain stops, should life not begin when the brain starts? People do not understand that pro-choice is not "pro-abortion". Obviously, it is an extremely tough decision to make, and no one who is pro-choice thinks abortion is all smiles and rainbows. But they also do realize that legal or not legal, there have always been pregnancies wanting to be terminated and a high demand for abortion, and when abortion is illegal it does not stop happening, it just becomes a lot more unsafe and sometimes deadly. Being pro-choice means wanting to keep abortion rare, legal and
Ever child has the right to be wanted and loved and abortion helps to s... ... middle of paper ... ... how she would be killing a potential human life for reasons of her own convenience. Also in later life I would assure her that she would be possibly guilt stricken knowing that she had had an abortion. In realising that abortion is a highly precarious option I would also point out that if the baby really did become too much there is a huge demand for young babies by couples that cannot have themselves. However this option could have produced problems with guilt over 'letting go' her child. I would urge her to have the baby emphasising that there is a lot of help available from various support groups and that she could rely on her friends also, although the baby will not be an easy prospect.
