Adoption is not simply the correct solution for having an abortion because if abortion was completely banned then there would be too many babies to be adopted and over the years it would pile up and become overwhelming (“Should abortion be” 2). Abortion is a form of murder and takes away the value of human life (Messerli 1). Even if a child is not born yet it is still a human-being and by murdering them it is rejecting their legal right (2). While being aborted their is a sonogram of the abortion and the mother is actually able to see the baby pulling away from the instruments and being scared of the items getting near the body (Slick 1). It is also said that the babies sometimes come out screaming and have looks of pain on their faces (“Reasons abortion should”).
Should Jessica be charged with the death of an unborn baby? The answer to both of the questions is, yes. Abortion is wrong, cruel and most of all, it goes against the word of GOD.When a woman decides to have sex she is taking the chance of getting pregnant, even if she uses protection. If she doesn't want to get pregnant she shouldn't have sex, and she should be responsible enough to suffer the consequences. For example, Carrie is very promiscuous and finds out that she is pregnant, so she goes and has an abortion.
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. According to Margaret Sykes from her article “Rape Justifies Abortion,” “If a 14-year-old [rape victim]…can’t have an abortion without being dragged through the courts…and having people trying to stop her left and right, who can?” (Sykes 130) Sykes believed that the 14 year old girl who had been raped had every right to abort her child. She believed that abortion should be legal for rape victims no matter what stage of the pregnancy they were in.
If the mother aborts the embryo at a very early stage it’s not even recognizable as human and that’s why potential life is just that, potential. My personal belief is that each woman has the right to decide whether she wants to abort an unwanted pregnancy. Remember the termination of the pregnancy might have to do with the health of the mother herself, maybe the mother is unable to attend to the child’s needs after its born, resulting in child abuse and mental disease. In these situations abortion is a must in my opinion. Most abortions occur because contraception fails, because of a rape or because of a serious medical condition of the mother, which could lead to her death.
The pro-life side believes that “abortion is murder,” pro-choice supporters say that those opposed to abortion are against free choice and the rights of women (“Abortion”). A human life begins with conception and things happen for a reason. Abortion is a murder that kills the baby right away, which is a terrible thing to do because women decide to have an abortion, which means they basically are willing to kill their own child. If a woman is not ready to raise a child she shouldn’t have sex or use protection. Another option is giving the baby up for adoption rather than killing it.
Abortion Abortion on demand should be legal for many reasons. In countries where abortion is absolutely not tolerated it is a fact that women continue to receive abortions, from unqualified back-street abortionists or the village massage abortionist. Both of these individuals risk putting the woman through painful and potentially fatal tortures just in an attempt to abort a child. Each year 84 000 women die worldwide from failed abortion attempts. Because of anti-abortion legislation women avoid going to the hospital, often until it is too late, to avoid prosecution from police.
She decides she doesn’t want to keep the baby; she has an abortion because the idea of raising a child of her rapist is too painful for her to cope with. Pro-choice defenders take sympathies to this woman while she then gets called a murderer by pro-life supporters. Abortions sometimes results in the woman being harassed because of the choice she has made about her own body. That’s what pro-life supports. Often time’s situations like this turns into harassment which can be considered to be part of anti-abortion violence1.
However, pro-life activists argue that it is murder. Should the government have the legal power to take away a woman's right to make decisions regarding her own body? An abortion results in the death of an embryo or a fetus. Abortion destroys the lives of helpless, innocent children. In many countries abortion is illegal.
Killing your baby is the worst decision to make. In her article, Ten Arguments for Abortion and Against Abortion, Linda Owen says, “Since life begins at conception, abortion is akin to murder as it is the act of taking human life. Abortion is in direct defiance of the commonly accepted idea of the sanctity of human life.” Killing someone in the United States is illegal. If killing someone is illegal, then having an abortion should be illegal too. Human beings don’t have the right to decide if someone lives or dies.
(Nance) she speaks of how we still can not forget about cases of rape, incest, and life of the mother. But then she contradicts her statment by saying that it's a red herring, which means detracting from the actual issue. She states that big abortion businesses' want any abortion for any reason at taxpayer's expense without helping the poor woman or girl to attend to her real issues that landed her at the abortion clinic. She uses all of the consequences to discourage the reader against abortion. Nance says that it scars women physically, emotionally, and mentally forever and killing an unborn baby.
