Banning abortion, put women at a higher risk of going out and finding illegal way to have the procedure done (“Abortion Information” 1). Once abortion became illegal in the United States 1.2 million abortions were preformed illegally. Dangerous attempts have been made by women to preform their own abortion, or have them done by unskilled surgeons often with dangerous instruments and sometimes in unsanitary conditions. Serious complication from unsafe abortion included, “perforations of the uterus, retained placentas, severe bleeding, cervical wounds, and rampant infections” (Currie 17.) Abortion has become safer over the years and should be legalized in every state in the United States; abortion should also be kept private between the client and doctor.
In the United States, the issue of abortion is extremely controversial that matters to not only medical field but also political and social fields. Pro-life (illegal abortion) advocates state that; life begins at conception, so the fetus is entitled to have a full human right to live; abortion is a crime of murder; women should use contraceptives in the means of preventing pregnancies; abortion increases the likelihood of future side-effects. On the other hand, pro-choice (legal abortion) advocates argue that; it is women’s rights to control their own bodies without any interference; abortion does not kill a baby, but just ends a pregnancy; modern abortion is safe because it is performed by professions in a safe setting; women who choose abortion do not have ability to raise children. These two sides over the issue are strained since long time ago. However, again, v... ... middle of paper ... ...ational Library of Medicine, Spring 2009.
Negative effect of abortion on women’s health he deliberate ending of a pregnancy Abortion provides the chance for the mother to be able to decide whether she has a desire to keep her unborn. This act of ending a pregnancy has become very common and it is practiced all around the world, whether or not it is legal. Many questions this act as a crime, as a/the fact of taking control over one’s right of birth is unacceptable. Many religions believe that abortion is sinful and this aspect affects the people’s views on abortion. (1) Or no need to cite?
Pro-choice advocates usually use the argument of “a women’s right to choose”. But does that mean women have the right to choose murder, because that is what she would be doing if the fetus were a person. Abortion is a very controversial subject that has been argued about for many years. Abortion is the process that takes the lives of unborn babies that could very well have a long and prosperous life. How do we know every time we perform an abortion that we aren’t taking the life of the person who would one day grow up and find the cure for AIDS, or become president?
There is no denying that abortion exist . Approximately 3,700 unborn babies are aborted daily in the United States ( Abortion Facts). Hospitals all over the country allow women to leave the baby with them if they do not want to keep it. There are many families that can not conceive a child, and wish to have child. Aborting is somewhat selfish, in the ways that a child could be saved, given up for adoption or left at the hospital to be put in a good home.
While some believe in the right to choose, others consider it as murder; in both cases the turmoil of abortion has an extreme affect on a woman. Even though the United States has ruled abortions to be legal, there is still controversy. One may say that this is a growing problem in our country. However, for every problem there should be a solution. Erika Bachiochi argues that: “The state's suppression of a woman's right to choose [was] simply a perpetuation of the patriarchal nature of our society...To free women from [the] gender hierarchy, women must have a right to do what they please with their bodies” (22).
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. Abortion is important because unborn children are having their lives taken from them. Many young teens are having abortions at such a young age. They make a small mistake that can lead to a bigger one. We must teach society to respect young women and we must teach young women about mistakes that can change their
The woman’s real choice is to choose not to have unprotected sex in the first place. The hardest decision to understand concerning abortion is a husband and wife agreeing to abort a child that they conceived together. Women need to understand that abortions should not be used as a form of birth control. In the book, “The Abortionist, A Woman Against the Law,” by Rickie Solinger, he explained, that before Roe v Wade, health experts estimated that one million abortions were performed per year with only ten thousand of them performed in a hospital (Solinger). According to the author, Linda J. Beckman in her book, “The New Civil War – ... ... middle of paper ... ...ly that they are pregnant.
If she is unhealthy, she may not be able to produce a healthy baby. If this is the case, she should have the option to abort. Abortion must remain an option for women because there many women in the United states not financially, emotionally, or physically ready to have a baby. Why should the government force women to bring children into the world? Millions of unintended pregnancies in the United States each year end in abortion.
