Abortion is Seriously Wrong Many clinics provide abortion services for women with unplanned or uncontrollable pregnancies. Some women find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy rather than an uncontrollable one. Unplanned in fact that a contraceptive failed, or may not have been easily accessible: uncontrolled in the sense of factors being greater than limited contraception. Abortion has been performed in many clinics as a treatment for unfit or unhealthy women, and for women who may have been molested or raped. Abortion shouldn’t be used as a form of contraception, nor should women’s lives be sacrificed to bear an infant before morally ready to commit.
If abortion were made illegal again, women would return to or back alley abortions. Inexperienced unlicensed individuals would be performing the abortion, not knowing exactly how the procedure is done. A women's health would suffer and illegal abortion would result as the leading killer of pregnant women. This topic is frequently discussed in all writing reports, but to me this procedure is very important to me and makes a difference and hard making decisions in many young adults like Karen Hubbard.
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.
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.
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.
During illegal abortion are usually, “performed by lay people who did not have the proper training” (O’Connor 60). They fear for the lack of equipment and method used if abortions were made illegal (60). Also illegal abortions put women in unnecessary risk of incomplete abortions, infection, and death (O’Connor 60). Although the risks are severe opponents argue that one should not change a law based on people breaking that law and should suffer the consequences of
Consequently, each one side can say with assurance that alternate isn't right. Accordingly the inquiry remains; should premature birth be lawful? Though many people may disagree on this fact that only legalized abortion is the only way woman’s still have their right. One just needs to investigate American history to see the effects of denying premature births to ladies. The viciousness which happens today because of the for/against life conflicts is minimal in comparison to the many sad ladies who turned to the unlawful illegal abortions either self-incurred or performed by the backroom "experts" which resulted in infection, huge blood misfortune, and death.
Women may consent to un-protected sex because if they become pregnant they figure they can always just go get an abortion. Pro-life supporters believe that abortions are a simple way out of a very complicated problem. However, the illegalization of abortion may bring on many consequences. If someone falls victim of rape and becomes pregnant it is not fair to make them keep the child. The mother would of course love the child, but with that would come a form of hate.
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.

They argue that abortion is a grave offend against God and his creation. They also say that it is an immoral and unsafe procedure that can result in serious medical complications.
