Imagine going to jail right after getting an abortion. Imagine the government being able to tell women what they can and cannot do with their own body. Did you know it is illegal to get an abortion after 24 weeks of pregnancy in 41 states? 1.21 million abortions happen each year. Of course, some may say that abortion is a sin, crime, or even murder, but does that mean the government should set restrictions on what women can do with their own body? Women are in control of their own bodies so the U.S. government should not put restrictions on abortion or make abortion illegal.
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,
One of the most debated subjects throughout the world is abortion. Abortion is the premature termination of pregnancy by spontaneous or induced expulsion of a nonviable fetus from the uterus (Dictionary). In certain circumstances, abortion could be beneficial for the mother with factors such as: age, rape, financial stability, and complications that could long-term harm the potential mother and child. Women of all ages are entitled to their right to abort regardless of how morally right or wrong it may be. Some people believe abortion goes against their religious and cultural backgrounds. However, other people believe because it is the woman’s body they should be liable to do as they please. Whatever the situation
This topic has created many controversies, and has faced many challenges in history. Until this very day Abortion has been consider one of the hardest topic to debate about, and that 's mostly due the differences of both parties that supported and not supported. This supporters use their own principles, logic, and religious reason to support their case. Most importantly let 's focus on what 's Abortion? Abortion is the elimination, or termination of a human pregnancy by the use of medical techniques. In this paper I will focus on explain to the audience that a Fetus does not have qualities like Person, and does not look like a person, meaning that it has no moral rights. Secondly
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.
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. Due to
Abortion provides women the opportunity to choose between pregnancy. Many individuals find abortion to be beneficial on account of their financial status in life, among other factors such as single mothers who cannot afford a child and people who are unfit or unable to support a child. This topic pins individuals against each other in every corner of the world. Many see it as immoral, while others oppose the issue due to their religion. Supporters of pro-life more often than not are influenced by their religious views on the issue; as a result, those who oppose it, often try to force and push their beliefs onto others. Pro-life doesn’t allow women to have control of their bodies and their reproductive rights. Considering these ideas woman should
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.
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.
child. Women abort babies daily because of unplanned/unwanted pregnancies, rape, and being forced by their parents when under age. Abortion became legal in 1973 after the Roe vs. Wade trial declared so. According to Deborah S. Romaine, “The U.S. Constitution protects both expressed, or enumerated, and unexpressed, or unenumerated, rights.” (1) And the jury for that trial believed that abortion was the right to any mother who needed, or wanted to use it. Still in today’s time, people argue and debate whether abortion should be legal or not. Abortion is a controversial issue which many people believe is evil because it is taking an innocent human life. Killing a child is unethical, and completely unfair to the fetus that is the victim.
Abortion is something that has troubled our world for thousands of years. Most opposing arguments rely on the idea that a fetus is a person from conception and that we must treasure that. What makes this fetus a person? It does not really look, function, or act like a person, so can we really consider it a person? I have a hard time considering something so different from a person to be an actual person. I do not believe that the status of the fetus is all that relevant because it is quite hard to determine when a fetus becomes a person and so on. In this essay, I will argue that abortion is permissible when there is sufficient reasoning to perform one.
Abortion is the act of killing a child before it even has a chance in our world. Abortion can be described as a pregnancy being put to an end so that it can prevent the birth of a child. No matter how you say it abortion is the act of killing an unborn baby. With different explanations of a word and the different procedures used they all come down to the same meaning, abortion is one of the most controversial issues of today’s society. Most women believe it is their right to choose but some feel the exact opposite. Some women strongly believe that abortion should be considered if they have been raped or simply because they are putting their life at risk. I disagree; I believe that no matter what the situation is, it should never be considered. My friend had an abortion less than a year ago. She worried about the financial cost and was afraid of what her parents would say. She never saw the choice of simply having the baby and putting it up for adoption which has no cost at all. She tells me how she has to live with the tremendous amount of guilt and shame. She also mentions how she wishes she could have treasured the life of her child. She regrets it every single day. If she could go back and change the fact that she had harmed an innocent life by having an abortion she wouldn’t do it, because to this day it still hurts her. I’m not trying to
Many women believe this is the only way out. Many do it just because it’s an option that is available, no questions asked. But is it the right choice? Is it morally correct? In my opinion, abortion is not the answer. It is not the answer because I believe in life. I believe any life deserves a chance to prove who they can one day be.
