Abortion should be legal because if a woman is sexually abused by their husband, a family member, or even by a stranger, she may or may not want to live with what her sexual abuser has done to her. The woman only option left may be abortion because she may think abortion is the only way out. Others may think it would be better if the woman carrying the fetus should carry the fetus to full term and just give the baby up for adoption instead of turning to adoption for a way out. No woman could live her life normally knowing her child is somewhere out in the world calling someone else mom and dad. In a recent survey the statics state that fifty-two percent of todays society think abortions should be legal under specific circumstances, while twenty-six percent think abortions should just be legal with no strings attached and the other twenty percent think abortions should be outlawed and illegal (Sadd, Lydia). Some doctors and nurses have quit their job because they were getting to a point where they could not perform abortions procedures because they thought what they were d...
Abortion is the act of removing a human embryo or fetus from the uterus of a pregnant woman prior to the completion of the full term of pregnancy.” (Rich, Alex K.Wagner, Geraldine. "Abortion: An Overview." Points Of View: Abortion (2013): 1. Points of View Reference Center. Web. 10 Nov. 2013.) In the 1960s and 70s abortion in the United States was taking a more liberal approach and it was becoming more acceptable for reasons such as health and rape. Since the famous case of Roe vs. Wade in 1973 abortion has been legal with few restrictions. A big point when it comes down to deciding restrictions on abortions is late term abortion and also underage abortion.
Abortion, one of the most controversial issues in the United States today, should remain legal because it helps to regulate population levels, keep unwanted children from being born, neglected, beaten or abandoned and in some cases it can also reduce divorce rates. Abortions can be practical for potential parents who do not have the money, time or experience to raise a child at this point in time in their life (especially teenagers). Women who have been raped also may have an abortion because she can not bear to a child that she did not willing conceive. Abortions are further more used to save the life of the mother. Abortion is defined as, the induced termination of a pregnancy followed by the death of the embryo or fetus.
The United States Government should illegalize abortion for many different reasons including, a potential life has ended before given a chance remains evidence enough for most people to understand why a person should never have a choice of whether a baby lives or dies. Studies also show that mothers who choose abortion have a higher health risk rate after the abortion and also have more psychological problems after the abortion as well. Not only is it proven that abortions cause pain to the mother of the baby but the Fetuses can feel pain during the abortion procedure as well. Another big reason most people believe abortions are not right is because, It is stated in the bible that a baby becomes a life after conception. One of the biggest problems however is that most people feel that the founding fathers did not approve of abortions because they stated “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness (Should Abortion be legal?, 2013 )."
Abortion is a controversial topic all around the world. Many people believe that abortion is a woman’s right because it is her body and she should be able to make her own choice whether she wants to keep the baby. Whereas, many other people believe that it is inhumane to end the life of an unborn child and they also see it as violating human rights. I personally do not believe that abortion should be legal. To me, it is not morally and religiously right.
Abortion: Do We Need It 1.Abortion is a hot topic these days. We hear about it on television and on the radio. Should we, even take a stance on this issue when we have no idea what is involved in each person's case? Abortion is a very sensitive issue because there are many reasons for having an abortion.
Abortion is the interruption of a pregnancy before birth of the foetus; ending in the death of the embryo while it is still in the woman’s womb and unable to survive in the outside world. There are two types of abortion; one is called spontaneous abortion or most commonly known as a miscarriage, and the other one is an induced abortion where the woman, if early enough in the pregnancy, can take a pill or have medicine injected to induce abortion.
Abortion has taken the lives of more than 50 million babies since 1973 (“About Abortion”). The issue of abortion is one of the most common controversial issues in American politics and culture. In modern society, many women that have an unintended pregnancy and they result to abortion without researching other options. Abortion is not a substitute for birth control and this issue should be taken seriously. The individual woman needs to understand that by agreeing to have an abortion she is agreeing to kill an innocent fetus. Abortion rips the unborn child from his or hers right to life. Society needs to let women see through the eyes of the fetus and find alternative ways to raise the baby. Abortion should be illegal because childhood begins at conception, not at birth.
The debate over whether or not to legalize abortion has been going on since the 19th century. With abortion illegal, it would affect the well-being and rights of many women. Abortion should be kept legal in the United States because it is a personal and private decision.
