If a child with a disability is to be born, should the parents be allowed to kill/abort the child out of pity? I... ... middle of paper ... ...would become irate if they knew that their child was aborted (killed) without their consent or knowing. Thus, it is obvious that abortion should be banned and made illegal. Murder is a capital offense, so why should abortion, which is even worse, remain legal? Some people that are murdered deserve it, while many others who were killed lived immoral or corrupt lives.
If one does not want a child, they should prevent conception from happening, not kill an innocent baby. Abortions should be eliminated and the whole class of human beings (pre-born babies) should be given the most fundamental right—the right to Life. 2 Abortions do not assure equal justice for all, which in this case, are the innocent unborn children.
The pro-life side believes that “abortion is murder,” pro-choice supporters say that those opposed to abortion are against free choice and the rights of women (“Abortion”). A human life begins with conception and things happen for a reason. Abortion is a murder that kills the baby right away, which is a terrible thing to do because women decide to have an abortion, which means they basically are willing to kill their own child. If a woman is not ready to raise a child she shouldn’t have sex or use protection. Another option is giving the baby up for adoption rather than killing it.
Today’s society is made up of such an abundant number of controversial issues. One of the most controversial issues being abortion- the act of intentionally termination a pregnancy resulting in the death of the fetus (Kreider, A. personal communication, March 24, 2011). Abortion is both constitutionally and morally wrong, and should be illegal in the United States in all but two cases: if the mother was raped (and pregnancy was as a result of the rape) or if the mother’s life would be put in endangerment by the pregnancy. Abortion is murder at any stage of pregnancy, and acts against the U.S. Constitution. Not only does abortion harm innocent babies, but abortion also rises the risk of medical complications for the mother.
There are people in the world who live without arms or legs and they are still considered human (Slick 2). Also some people may say that being raped and becoming pregnant is a logical reason to get an abortion. Rape is horrible, but why should the baby pay for sins committed by someone else (3)? Lastly, it is not right for citizens to pay tax dollar for something they do not agree with and find to be murder (Messerli 3). Abortion is a horrible thing.
“There are only two ways of thinking about abortion: either a woman has a right to decide not to be pregnant anymore, or other people think they have a right to make her decision for her (Carmon, Irin).” It is very difficult for a mother to have a child as a rape victim. That day when that cruel man took her innocence will continuously play out and the child will contribute to a memory of this horrific time. The woman who has been raped will not want the child as a memory. Being raped is a terrible trauma as is and a raped victim should be able to receive an abortion The individual did not choose to be raped. A woman being raped and then forced to carry the baby until delivery could be tragic for both mother and child.
A woman can choose to have an abortion simply because she doesn’t want to have a child or because she was raped and doesn’t think it’s right to have a child that she did not want to have. “Ultimately abortion takes place because there is something wrong within the culture, within the system, and not simply because this or that particular woman is seeking to end an unwanted pregnancy” (Rolheiser). Child
Abortions should be illegal; an abortion kills a human being that cannot fight back. How would you like if someone pulled you out of bed and duct taped your mouth shut, then just cut off your head? I don’t think that you would like it very well, but they wouldn’t give you a choice. Other countries are making abortions illegal, unless you were a victim of a rape (Abortions- Why this is wrong. As told by a pathologist, 1999).
Yes killing, killing an unborn baby, a baby who hasn’t seen light yet. No one has the right to take a life away but God. God brought you to this world, God should take you out this world. Its also a sin according to the Bible. Overall teen abortion is wrong and should be prohibited.
Abortions Abortions should be illegal if you are going to go out and have unprotected sex, then you should be willing to take responsibility for your actions. The unborn child that is conceived has done no wrong and shouldn't have to suffer because of the mothers actions. Women shouldn't have a "right" to kill their preborn child. The word "choice" shouldn't be used in regard to abortions, since killing a preborn child offers the child no choice at all. If you think about it nearly 30 million preborn children have been slaughter in their mother's wombs.
