Abortion is a legal process, therefore it should be seen as acceptable if a women decides to go through this process. Yet, abortion is definitely not a cut and dry subject. There are many issues to address before making such permanent decision, but a woman has the right to decide what happens to their body. Although you may get easily judged for it, abortion is an option to take in some situations. One situation that abortion can be an option is pregnancy complications. In the U.S. alone, 600 women die each year because of pregnancy or delivery complications. According to Stephanie Pappas, even with advances in science and technology women still suffer death or serious health complications because of issues caused by pregnancy. She continues to prove her argument by sharing shocking facts such as, “Ectopic pregnancy, for example, affects 19.7 out of every 1,000 North American pregnancies, according to a paper published in February 2000 in the journal American Family Physician. In these cases, embryos almost always implant in the fallopian tubes, the connection between the ovaries and the uterus. The fallopian tubes aren 't capable of supporting a pregnancy; a growing embryo will rupture them, which can cause uncontrollable bleeding. There is no technology available to …show more content…
According to the National Library of Medicine and Institutions of Health, a shocking estimated 32,101 rape victims become pregnant each year. Considering that sexual assault is not only physically damaging but mentally damaging it can be stated that victims can develop mental issues such as depression or PTSD. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, 94 out 100 surveyed women experienced PTSD after a sexual assault. In a situation where women get pregnant from a rape or sexual assault leading to their mental incapability to carry much less care for that child abortion is yet again an acceptable
Over years and years of constant, back-and-forth debate, there are many people who strongly support as well as many who strongly oppose abortion. Those who state that abortion should be legalized, a lot of the time, claim that it is the mother’s body so it then is her ultimate choice whether or not she should go through with aborting her unborn baby. In contrast, those who oppose the procedures and very idea of abortion claim it is inhumane, plain murder and that the mother can go through many consequences in undergoing the abortion procedures as well as other arguments. In an article I found off of the website Mic.com titled “Yes, I’m Pro-Abortion”, writer Lauren Rankin explains her position on the abortion controversy.
What is abortion? Abortion is when a fetus is removed out of a womens womb ending her pregnancy. A woman has the right to choose to get an abortion up to her first trimester which are her first 3 months of pregnancy, after she past her first trimester she is obligated to have the baby, unless her life is at risk and they have to remove the fetus, and this is only in some states. According to "Sarah Marshall, Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) for Abortion, Webmd.Com" a woman can also have an abortion in her second trimester which requires and Dilation and Evacuation Abortion if the baby is diagnosed with any abnormal or complicated medical issues, also if the mother was raped and was emotionally traumatized, or if an abortion is delayed.

When it comes to abortion there is always much hostility when discussing the topic. Abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy. This procedure often done when 28 weeks pregnant. Many people consider abortion to be cruel and an act of murder. Although some will advocate for abortions, those who have religious beliefs will say that no one but God has the right to take someone’s life. Those who support abortion do not consider an unborn child a human that should be protected. The issue of abortion is very difficult when determining if it’s right or wrong. Therefore, I am going to give my philosophical argument from the “pro-life” perspective.
The bond between a mother and child is made by something more than just DNA. The love that a parent gives their child makes their connection closer than other. However, abortion allows the deliberate decision of murdering your own child. How can we, not as americans but as humans, approve of a society where the killing of the innocent is acceptable? Abortion is, as Mother Teresa claimed, “ a war against the child... a direct killing of the innocent child, ‘murder’ by the mother herself”. If we can frown upon the existence of capital punishment, should we not be outraged by abortion. Compared to inmates and anyone else, these babies are pure and sinless; however, unlike the worst of our society, which plead the right to live,
The abortion issue is argued from two different views, however, from a moral perspective, it is wrong to terminate a human life. For generations, society has tried to uncover an answer to whether the human life begins at conception or when an infant takes its first breath. The human life is a fascinating topic that fills a person with questions and hypothesizes. Science has mostly proven and answered the vast majority of questions about the human body. Although, there is one question no one can seem to answer. When does the human life begin? If an answer were to arise, would it really matter in the abortion debate? Even if it were proven, abortion would still be wrong and society would need to end the terminating of fetuses.
However, thousands of women in the process of pregnancy, they do not enjoy the joyous event as it should be, but as a painful experience that, can even lead to death. The abortion is a simple medical method that ends the pregnancy, everybody knows that, but I do not think people actually knows the magnitude of this process. Through history around the world and in many religions, women have used abortion as part of their health care. Not all women believe abortion is fine, but every woman has the right to make their own decision, or at least that is what I believe. Other options can be an unexpected case of pregnancy where delivering the baby to adopt it or keep the baby would be a
The issue on whether or not abortion should be legal or not countries to flourish among Americans still today long after the trial on January 22, 1973 of Roe V. Wade in the US Supreme Court’s 7-2 decision declared the procedure a “fundamental right.” On one hand, proponents of abortion believe that killing the human child not only is evil but it can also harm the woman who is having the abortion. On the other hand, opponents of abortion say if we are able to create life why can’t we destroy it along with certain situations people believe it is okay for abortion such as if the baby has a deformity or the young girl gets pregnant. Since legalizing abortion death rates have skyrocketed so, congress should endorse the right-to-life amendment because many citizens believe that the right to life amendment should begin with conception to end of...
Abortion is done worldwide by doctors and by the pregnant women in the world. Just because it is done, does not mean it should be condoned. More than 68,000 women die of unsafe abortion annually, making it one of the leading cause of maternal mortality. More than 56 million lives have been taken since Roe v. Wade. Abortion is wrong because women are being hurt mentally and physically, avoiding responsibility as a whole, and because it is not condoned by the bible.
The topic of abortion is a very sensitive subject in the world today. This begs the question “Is abortion morally acceptable?” I, myself, believe that “abortion is seriously immoral and that it is in the same moral category as killing an innocent adult human being.”(Minch, p.604) In this essay I will define abortion and give a brief summary of the case Roe v. Wade, tell why I believe abortion is immoral, provide a counter argument for a person who is pro-choice, and conclude by supporting my pro-life argument and providing an alternative to the pro-choice argument.

Abortions are legal, which has been the case for many years, but they are very unethical. Women believe there are many reasons to abort such as rape, fear of raising a child, or not having enough money to take care of a child.

Politicians to health practitioners argue daily the legal and moral validity of the removal of a developing child while it is still in the womb. Although it’s been practiced for hundreds (if not thousands, if you trace it back to the Code of Hammurabi, ca. 1760 BCE) of years around the world, the U.S. legalized abortion in the Roe v.
