Abortion is against doctors' Hippocratic Oath. Government gets to control a woman's body. "Back alley" abortions would increase if it were made illegal, leading to increased risk of young women dying or becoming sterile. It's arguably better for society to have babies aborted than have them be brought up poor and neglected, where not only will the child suffer but society when that child develops a higher attraction to crime, welfare, etc. One brief mistake can take away a woman's childhood and trap her for life.
Other women may not want children because of the money, time, and responsibility needed to take care of a child. If in the future abortions are made illegal the amount of deaths because of unsafe abortion methods used when a women is desperate for one. “God send us someone to cure cancer, AIDS, etc., etc.” “I did but you forced her to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, forcing her to become a single mother with limited income, having to sacrifice her college dreams in order to provide for her unwanted child.”
darkness in your heart which you once had? But when you decide to have another baby and the timing is wrong and you decide to keep think about that advice about supporting abortion. Others that strongly disapprove of abortions believe in other methods such as: adoption, surrogacy, and group homes. People don’t realize that there are many more ways to give a child up than just killing them. Adoption is a worthwhile alternative to abortion and achieves the same result.
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. In these situations abortion is often the only way that prevents the birth of an unwanted child or saves a mothers life. In the world today pregnancy often has catast... ... middle of paper ... ...eering there are many pros and cons for each. What it mainly comes down to is how each individual perceives each situation of abortion and genetic engineering. If one person sees abortion as a women’s choice and can back up his views with proof that it would be better for the mother, then do not try to destroy their views.
Women may argue that abortion is not murder because when it is performed the bad has not fully developed and it does not become a real person until it has been delivered from the mother’s body (Messerli 4). The government should not be able to control what women can do with their body. If she does not want to have the baby she should not be forced into doing it (1). Abortions are in fact safe to be performed and does not cause the baby pain. 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).
Whether it is mentally or physically. Although I believe abortion is a terrible thing and should be illegal, many people believe that if you think about it, scientifically abortion isn’t wrong. Scientists say that “The unborn is an embryo or a fetus that is just a simple blob of tissue” (Alcorn). Science takes a major part in abortion. The fetus inside the woman's body may be alive, but we can’t tell whether or not it will become a potential human (Alcorn).
The average woman comes up with at least three excuses for having an abortion; ¾ say they if they have the baby it will interfere with work or school, another ¾ say they can’t afford this child and ½ say they don’t want to be a single parent or they’re having too many complications with their significant other. What if you were one of these woman coming up with an excuse as to why you can’t have this child? Would you really want to go through with killing it instead of having it? Even though it is wrong to have woman continue pregnancy when rape or incest has occurred or if this pregnancy affects the woman’s health and well-being, it is also wrong to take someone’s life from them. I am against this because back in 2008 approximately 1.21 million abortions took place in the US.
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?
Designer babies should not be allowed because as much as it reduces the financial strains of the parents throughout the child’s lifespan, the outright cost that the couple will spend throughout the procedure is costly. Designer babies assist couples who have a high risk of transmitting severe hereditary disease to prevent transmission to their offspring. A designer baby however is a health risk to the mother and developing embryo. According to Hersberger and Pierce (2011) genetic modification is associated with IVF that has a risk for multiple gestations and preterm birth. Multiple gestations affect the health of ... ... middle of paper ...
By having the abortion, which at this point would be, therapeutic abortion there will be much remorse in the decision but by making the decision now it will limit the amount of sorrow and sadness that is felt. If they make the choice now then they will not have to endure all of the tests surgeries, and complications that would be present if they allowed the child to be born. If they are to continue with the pregnancy there is a very high chance that complications will occur. If at this point it is still a fetus, the facts are changed. If this pregnancy is allowed to continue there will be a huge responsibility put on their family.
