Abortion is a big issue for women and it should be made legal in all countries because legalized abortion prevents illegal unsafe abortions, child abusive crime and health problems like depression, trauma and shock. Legalized abortion law prevents the unsafe abortions. Anti choice groups people think that killing the unwanted child should be against the law and it is a murder but they mistaken the point that the women who decides to give up the child will abort in anyway either safe or unsafe. “About 40% of women who have a clandestine abortion experience complications that require treatment” (Cohen, Facts and consequences). Women who decide to have an illegal abortion get their life on the risk.
The moral question has always been whether or not it should be a woman’s decision to get an abortion. The other side of that question is whether the government should have control over a woman’s body and forbid her to get an abortion. Pro-Choice, though it does take the side of legalizing abortion, it does not mean Pro-abortion. Pro-choice is the right in choosing whether to reproduce, adopt, or abort. I believe a woman should have the right to choose whether to keep the baby if she knows that she is willing to take up such a huge responsibility.
Preservation of life seems to be a slogan for anti-abortionists. If we turn our backs on women now, it would bring more deaths and illegal and self-induced abortions. Anti-abortionists do not know what it is like to have to make the decision of having an abortion; they have not experienced the situation that some women had to go through. There are arguments on both sides and judgment against people needs to be stopped. Abortion should remain legal,

There unappreciated risk factors to abortion and preventing pregnancy is the first step to restraint from it. However, there are other alternatives than aborting the precious life inside. Be a responsible parent-to-be, think clearly on the possibilities that can be taken and make the right choice.
Abortion allows to the woman to dictate what she can do to her body which is something they been fighting to have. One of the best reasons that are the main pro that is argued for abortion is a baby should not come into the world unwanted. Many people agree that it’s best to keep a child from coming to this world if they are going to be unwanted and not taken care of the way a child should be nurtured. Therefore, these people would prefer that the mother terminates if she never wanted to have the child in the first
Thomson’s essay was created as a strong, convincing essay. Thomson uses pathos when explaining the example for the mother and child situation. Thomson states “Some won’t even make an exception for a case in which continuation of the pregnancy is likely to shorten the mother’s life; they regard abortion as impermissible even to save the mother’s life.” (Thomson, 50) that even when the mother’s life is endangered, they still regard abortion as impermissible. However the case stated before is extremely rare and many people who are against abortion doesn’t believe in the extreme view. She states that “The extreme view could of course be weakened to say that while abortion is permissible to save the mother’s life, it may not be performed by a third party but only by the mother’s life.” (Thomson) the mother and child share the same body so it should be left in her hands to control the situation.
Some people might not agree with their decisions, but in the ends it is theirs. Many people believe abortion is a moral issue, but it’s also a constitutional issue (Messerli 1). The right of the woman to speak about this issue is hers, and is guaranteed by the ninth amendment, which is the right to privacy. The ninth amendment states, "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." (Boland 7) This amendment guarantees the right to women, so if they choose to have an abortion, up to the end of their first trimester it is theirs.
It is only fair to say that women should be given the same choice. If one does not want to hold the responsibilities of a child then she should be able to have the choice of abortion in her options. Because contraceptives fail, and because they are ... ... middle of paper ... ...e if they were not conceived.In summary, a woman's right to choose can justify abortion, but it should be banned because it is immoral and life begins at conception. Women have been given the right to have an abortion under the United States Constitution, but the people that fight for the unborn child's rights are still protesting this right. Pro-life activists claim that it is immoral because it is simply defined as murder.
Before discussing the implications of this new bill, it is important to first analyze the most problematic aspect of abortion: its hazardous effects on the mothers’ healths. Many women, regardless of age, take pills or get surgeries to remove their babies, from which they can suffer from numerous biological health problems. Studies have shown that abortion surgeries are not to be trusted. An article titled “Unsafe Abortion - a major public health problem” mentions that un... ... middle of paper ... ...ealth than the current law. Many supporters of abortion argue that abortion is a way for women to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy.
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.
