Current methods of hormonal contraception have many harmful side effects that can alter the mental and physical health of an individual. These side effects negatively impact on heterosexual women’s lives, as many feel “pressure and responsibility” (Lipton-Lubet, 2012) to take hormonal contraception if they do not want to conceive. Birth control can help gap gender inequality, as it allows women to engage in heterosexual sex without having the worry of unwanted pregnancy. However, this argument suggests that women’s natural, biological ability to have children makes them naturally inferior to men. Hormonal contraception was created to stop ovulation in order to prevent pregnancy and allow women more control over whether they have children or not.
Many supporters of abortion argue that abortion is a way for women to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy. The discussions above, however, clearly undermine these statements. Abortion places women in even more risks, let alone protect them. If the supporters really wanted to save women, why would they promote such dangerous methods of traumatizing women for life?

So many different chemicals are inserted in your body to try to conceive, but do we think of the more damages its causing? We as women don’t realize is that if we already have issues with our uterus, eggs, and Fallopian tubes, why would doing all of these surgeries, and taking all of these drugs help our situation anymore? I honestly just don’t believe that these treatments are safe, and they’re very costly too. We still have the option of adoption if we are incapable of having children. I believe that is the safest route left.
If abortion is to be prevented contraceptive should be easier to obtain and use but stripping women of control over their bodies is not the way to go.

Who should be responsible for stopping the 120 million sperm that are released during a male orgasm from fertilizing a female’s egg? The context of that question has been a societal debate in terms of the consequences of unplanned pregnancy and whether it is a female, male or both sexes responsibility to practice “safe sex”.

However, as medicine has advanced and the possibility of a male birth control pill has amounted, many wonder if the same issues would arise if a male birth control pill did in fact become available. In order to understand the effects on society of both individual female and male responsibilities it is essential that the women birth control pill is discussed, the male pill and lastly, what the stigmas and potential effects of both birth control pills mean.
There are many ways to prevent women from having undesirable or unexpected pregnancies. For example, there are condoms, sterilization, pull out method, cervical cap or spermicide, etc. (plannedparenthood.org).

They start regretting what they did and plenty of them feel guilty (2002).
People should not restrict other's rights based on their personal morals. Sometimes an abortion is the best solution and who is anyone else to say that it is not. If abortions are made illegal they could cause more deaths than they actually save. This problem can be prevented either way. Whether you are “pro-choice” or “pro-life” you should be able to agree that schools should implement classes that teach about safe sex rather than shelter their children about the reality of sex and its repercussions.
