Banning Abortion For many years now people have debated over abortion. Legally a woman can have an abortion when she is up to 24weeks pregnant except if the mothers' life is in danger. Some people see this as killing innocent babies but others see it as a rescue for teenage mothers' etc. Abortion was only legalized in 1861but was only carried out if the mothers life was at risk. However this changed with the introduction of the Abortion Act (1967) by the Liberal MP David Steel.
Partial birth abortion is done during the fifth month of gestation and is only done for serious situations, such as health and mental health of the mother, or if the fetus has been found to be dead, malformed, or suffering from a serious defect. The surgeon begins to insert sharp objects to take the fetus apart and then vacuums it out. Self-induced abortions are the most dangerous of all because they are not done under medical supervision. The mother and the fetus can undergo serious complications that can kill both of them. The self-induced abortion is the only abortion that is not
They have some alternatives: (1) have the child and raise it (2) have the child, then give it up for adoption (3) get an abortion. Sadly, many women choose alternative three, unaware of what they’re getting themselves into. Abortion is very cruel to the baby and even harms the mother. It is murder!There are many different procedures for abortions, all gruesome and pain inflicting on the baby. Suction Aspiration (vacuum curettage) makes up for 98% of first trimester abortions.
Nevertheless you are ending the life of a person who did not get a chance to strive to be all that he/she could be. So as you can see although abortion is prevalent among many women in our society it should not be viewed as a positive thing because the woman can acquire some sort of disease after the abortion process is over, psychological damage may occur after the abortion, and it ends a human life. Ronald Reagan (1983) definitely made a point when he said “Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born.” So what do you think of abortion now, that I have stated some valid points that do not support it?
All of these conditions can, if the mother delivers the soon to be baby, lead to the mother's death. Also, another justification many women have is carrying an unwanted fetus, which was a result of rape. An additional example of abortion justification involves the quality of life for the future child. If a woman is single or cannot pay to support a child properly, then she should not be forced to have one. In these instances abortion, before twenty weeks, is a smart alternative.
Most of the time, the medication would kill the baby and the woman would just have to give birth to a dead baby, or they can make it so that you have a miscarriage. However, if the baby is in its first trimester, a vacuum can suck it and it will have hardly any damage to your body, except for that if a part of a fetus is left behind, it can infect. The main reason there are debates over this issue is because it is a new life in a stomach, never seen the outside world before.
People who had no medical experience often carried these out. The Abortion Act allowed abortions to be carried out, if two doctors agreed that: · The mother's life was in danger · Grave permanent injury to the mother's physical, or mental, health may occur. · If there is greater risk of injury to the physical, or mental, health of the mother, or her existing children than if the pregnancy was aborted. · Substantial risk that the child would be born with major physical and mental disabilities. No time limit was set, but in general practise it is advised that the pregnancy shouldn't have passed the 28th week, although this was reduced to 24 weeks in 1990.
Abortion is one of the most controversial and most debated about topics in our society and media today. It is “The induced termination of pregnancy, which is usually legal only before the fetus is viable.” There are two different types of abortion which are induced and spontaneous abortions. Induced abortion is done surgically by an abortionist and spontaneous abortion is when the mothers body rejects the embryo in the womb. Abortion allows women to put an end to their pregnancy, for what ever reason that may be, but at the cost of killing the undeveloped “baby” that was in the womb. For those who support abortion, they usually state that the fetus that is in the womb of the mother is not yet a person and does not have any
Researchers also believe that at about 20 weeks a young unborn babies/fetus should be able and are fully capable of feeling pain, so will you having an abortion hurt not only you, but your child? Abortions are hap... ... middle of paper ... ... may lead to a surgical abortion. Having an abortion may likely cause damage to the uterus and make it harder to get pregnant in the future (Abortion Risks). Abortion should not be done because even if it’s not born out into the world yet, it is still a living innocent human being. Having an abortion will likely give you risks in the future, and you may end up regretting your decision in the future.
Not all abortions are intentional- these are specified as miscarriages. A miscarriage is when the fetus does not develop properly or the mother has some type of injury or disorder that is harmful to the fetus and causes it to die. I will go into great detail about the abortions that are induced, because the pregnancy is unwanted or presents a health risk to the mother. There are different types of procedures that are used determining the length of the pregnancy. The age of the fetus, or the length of the pregnancy establishes the method that is chosen.
