How would it feel if someone took away the unalienable right to live away? Imagine having no say in whether or not you want to have a life. Well children do not have a choice inside their mother’s womb. Abortion is the early termination of pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of a pregnancy, with an estimated 44 million abortions are performed globally each year. Unsafe abortions result in approximately 70,000 maternal deaths and 5 million hospital admissions per year.
On average, pregnancies last between thirty- nine to forty weeks, which are divided into trimesters. The first consists of the first thirteen weeks; the second is from fourteen to twenty-four weeks; and the final trimester is from twenty- five to birth. Most procedures are performed during the first trimester because i... ... middle of paper ... ...threat to the reproductive rights and the danger of allowing the government to decide what medical options are available to them. Also, pro- choice women are disturbed by the use of abortion as a form of birth control (Benson 30). Embryology, the study of fetal development, offers little insight about the fetus’ status at the moment of conception (Benson31).

Help them out give the baby up for adoption for those who can’t have babies. You are not only risking the baby’s life, but as you lay upon that operation table you to could die. There are woman every day that die from something going wrong during the abortion.
Would you consider it murder to kill a baby the day after it is born? Then why would it not be murder to kill it before it is born? “If it is impossible to abort a baby in the ninth month, then what makes it ok to do in the fifth or sixth month.” (Carl Sagan & Ann Druyan). Many abortions are perormed each year in the United States. 75% of all abortions in the U.S. are performed on women over 20 years of age, but the lawmakers try to concentrate on the 186,000 teens that have an abortion each year.
Abortion is the ending of a pregnancy before the fetus has the ability to survive outside of the womb. There are two sides to abortion: Pro-life and Pro-choice. The poem “The Mother” by Gwendolyn Brooks is about a mother who has had more than one abortion and is thinking about the lives she took away from them. There are many reasons why people choose to get an abortion. Most of the time parenthood is not planned and the proper precautions to not having a child are not taken.
A mother kills her unborn child because it is unwanted, but she's not charged for murder. Is it right? There is about 46 million abortions per year worldwide, and approximately 115,000 per day, but why? Is it because rape or incest, health problems with either the mother or the child, or just because the baby's unwanted or inconvenient at the time? (The Alan Guttmacher Institute.)
After the prostaglandins are put inside the vagina and the pitocin is given to the mother intravenously the baby dies and the termination is successful. Abortions at this stage is mostly illegal due to the fact that by the time the mothers are in the late second trimester the baby is considered viable and able to survive on its own outside of the womb. (American Pregnancy, Unplanned Pregnancy) “Forty-six percent of abortion providers offer very early abortions (before the first missed period) and 95% offer abortion at eight weeks from the last menstrual period. Sixty-one percent offer at least some second-trimester abortion services (13 weeks or later), and 34% offer abortion at 20 weeks. Only 16% of all abortion providers offer abortions at 24 weeks.” (Gutmacher, Induced Abortion) There are complications that can occur very soon or even immediately after an abortion.
As a result of the lack of women putting their children up for adoption, the number of US infant adoptions dropped from about 90,000 in 1971 to 18,000 in 2007 (Wendy Koch, 2013). The only way to 100 percent prevent an unplanned pregnancy is abstinence. Having sexual intercourse, even when contraceptive methods are used, carries with it the risk of a pregnancy (BBC, 2014). If women are not prepared to raise a child then they don’t need to have sex or put the child up for adoption. Killing an innocent human being is not the right option for an unplanned pregnancy because the baby didn’t do anything wrong.
It is indirect murder,and it affects more than just you. While some argue that it is the mother's body and she has a right to do, or not do whatever she wants with it. Abortion is indirect murder. Most women learn they are pregnant roughly about two to three months after getting pregnant, that they are pregnant . While there is no evidence that there are no signs of life until ten weeks, in the pregnancy.
There are many organizations that provide help to mothers. Some things given to single mothers are: Scholarships, money for bills and child care. Often times a mother could put her child in day care, and not have to pay a penny. Certain states honestly look towards the best interest of parents who cannot afford to do the necessities. In fact companies like Medicaid pay for 40% of all births in the U.S., and for the next 60 days of pregnancy related care.
