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,
Abortion as defined in medical terms as 'premature expulsion of the foetus from the womb' in modern society is still one of the most controversial and talked about subjects in Christian homes. Should a woman have the right to choose what happens when she finds herself in a situation faced with an unwanted pregnancy? An unwanted pregnancy can happen given different circumstances. A woman who has suffered incest or rape may not want to be constantly reminded of the violent act performed against her, but is that really a strong enough argument to end a life? If the medical help is sought in time, the woman has the right to immediate intervention to remove the semen and prevent fertilisation.
Every mother might enjoy the times that she carries her baby with love. Abortion breaks the natural law to deprive life from a fetus; therefore, it could be seen as murder. It would cause permanent physical and psychological damage to the mother. In normal situation, abortion is been seen as a way to avoid responsibility. The mother want to abort the fetus if it is unwanted.
Justifying Abortion Abortion is murder Rape, incest Life is Gods gift, we should not destroy Mother is unable to care for baby. e.g. very young, mental or physical health problems/ We have no right to take a unique life, everyone should have an equal chance to live. To save the mothers life There are possibly many other arguments for both sides of the argument but most of them are so closely linked that I would just be repeating myself. Rape and incest is traumatic for the woman, but think if that woman had to keep that child, a constant reminder of a horrible event.
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
Another advantages could be saving a baby from pain if they are born with abnormalities. There are many new technologies that can detect if they baby will be born with disabilities. Some disadvantages are abortion has the potential of lessens chances of a woman getting a child later in life. Abortion interferes with the uterine wall. At other instances, it may lead to total damage of the uterus such actions may also cause hormonal imbalances that could be attributed to the barren nature of the women later in their lives.
People who are for abortion may have had one and therefore think it is ok or they may know someone who has had one. In this essay I will discuss the arguments for and the arguments against abortion. An argument in favour of abortion is if the woman was raped. If a woman was raped then she would often not want to keep a rapist’s child. Also she would probably be scarred for life, even without the baby.
Maybe mistakes were made in the past, and now another person has to suffer because of those mistakes. This wouldn’t be necessary if only the pregnancy could be aborted. Today, that’s a choice women can legally make, but if abortion was made illegal, a new baby would come into the world who would unlikely ever know anything except suffering.” Today in our society every women have the right to choice to an abortion, but if any woman realize that is taking away a life to an innocent human that do not anything yet will make them feel bad. Furthermore, another reason that people believe is that abortion should be legalized because everyone believe that any woman should have the chance to make their own decisions in their life, especially when regarding such a personal subject as abortions. Also, the government should not have control over a woman 's body or a family 's decision because they only can decide if they having the baby or they going to
If the parents of the child had prior knowledge that the child would be in some way physically or mentally disabled then abortion is the right path not only for the parents but the child too as the child may suffer rejection and become a problem in society. A pro-abortion group would also allege that abortion is not an act of murder as it only destroys a collection of cells, which would be unable to survive external to the womb before 24 weeks of pregnancy. Another scenario in which abortion may be looked upon as acceptable is if as a result of giving birth the woman is at risk of dying p... ... middle of paper ... ... and a sin, completely disregarding such Christian principles as the sixth commandment of "thou shall not kill". Although there is no direct reference to abortion given in the bible there are many quotes that can be taken, with underlying messages, which could be referred to in the case of abortion. Although not all Christians express disapproval of the act completely, such as certain Protestants, a vast number do condemn the act regardless of the circumstances.
The other 98% was for risk of 'psychological damage' to the mother. The main arguments for abortion, or pro-choice arguments are that a foetus is not truly alive- whereas there can be no argument that the mother is- therefore is not the mother's life worth more and more important? This is one of the main debates that surround the controversy of abortion- when does life really begin? At conception, during pregnancy or at birth? 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.
