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). Even though science is a major part of abortion, we never really know when human life begins (Alcorn). However, that doesn’t mean it’s okay to abort a child. Many believe having an unplanned pregnancy is a curse, but I believe it is a blessing in disguise. I believe that abortion should be illegal because it is equal to murder, you can always place the child up for adoption, and abortion can affect a woman mentally and physically.
Abortion is a big issue for women and it should be made legal in all countries because legalized abortion prevents illegal unsafe abortions, child abusive crime and health problems like depression, trauma and shock. Legalized abortion law prevents the unsafe abortions. Anti choice groups people think that killing the unwanted child should be against the law and it is a murder but they mistaken the point that the women who decides to give up the child will abort in anyway either safe or unsafe. “About 40% of women who have a clandestine abortion experience complications that require treatment” (Cohen, Facts and consequences). Women who decide to have an illegal abortion get their life on the risk.
A difficult problem today is trying to that prove rape occurred and that it was not consensual. There should be some type of system to regulate that issue. Everyone that wanted an abortion could say they have been raped and get one, there needs to be a system to prevent that. Also, if a woman carrying a child is getting very sick or unhealthy because of the pregnancy the option of abortion should be available to her. It would be better to save one life than possibly lose both.
Many people are against abortions because it is unmoral, however, many fetuses have gone through this horrible procedure. In the 14th amendment, it states that a woman has the right to determine whether or not to bear a child. Abortion isn’t the only answer to get rid of a “problem” that happened. People have to think that adoption is always an option for a couple or even a single mother. The fetus is human and has human characteristics just like a human being.
Because of this, each side can always say that the foetus is or isn't alive and that you are or aren't killing a baby through abortion. Pro-choice campaigners also say that doctors have no better right than the mothers to deem whether and abortion is necessary. Additionally, they say that if abortions were made illegal, thousands of women would risk their lives in dirty back... ... middle of paper ... ... they are physically or mentally handicapped- they can come to terms with it- why can't we? I have noticed that all the arguments against abortion are impersonal and are based on the idea that life doesn't start until birth, but with medical advances a baby born as early as 24 weeks can survive in the world. So since birth is so unpredictable, that cannot be seen as the start of life.
They argue that abortion is a grave offend against God and his creation. They also say that it is an immoral and unsafe procedure that can result in serious medical complications. According to abortion’s advocates who think that it is a woman’s right to do whatever she wants with her body, abortion must be a legal practice. In... ... middle of paper ... ...afe medical procedure but physicians have found that it can be a cause of many medical complications such as an ectopic pregnancy, or a miscarriage and even a cause of breast cancer in some cases. Beyond doubt, abortion is a wrong practice that punishes the unborn child who hasn’t committed a crime; in its place, it is the perpetrator who should be punished for murdering a human being indifferently, that must be considered as a first degree murder.
In the article “All Abortions Must Be Illegal” the president of the American Life Judie Brown and the director of public Relations for American Life League says “All choices should not be legal or protected, and abortion is one that should not be legal. Allowing abortion in cases of rape or incest punishes the innocent child more than the guilty rapist”. The question is “Who should make the choice to kill preborn babies?” the answer is “Nobody”. Therefore, most women "choice" abortion precisely because they believe they have no other choice.” Abortion has change in our society today now because the women have the right to choose to abort or having the baby. Abortion is a medical or surgical procedure that ends a pregnancy.
Whether abortion is immoral or not, the state oversteps it’s legitimate function when it prohibits abortions. Here’s why: When the state oversteps its boundaries and prohibits abortions it is denying our personal freedoms. We have the right to choose our own religions, jobs, schools and many other examples. But why can we not choose to have a baby aborted if we feel it’s necessary. For example, if a young lady in high school unfortunately gets pregnant, she should be able to make the decision to either have the baby or decide that she’s not ready to birth a child and have it aborted.
Abortion is a controversial subject in today’s world. One side believes that taking away the right to have an abortion is taking away the rights of the mother. On the other hand people view abortion as the innocent killing of a human being. (p.31OpposingViewpoints) The Roe vs. Wade trial declared the procedure a “fundamental right” on Jan. 22 1973(p.7RoeW.Wade)The mother has the right to choose what is best for her baby. Abortion is justified because it could be in the family’s best interest (p.103OpposingViewpoints).
Today, in the news, you hear a lot about abortions becoming illegal in some states. The states should not make abortions illegal, and not give women that choice because if the women were to want an abortion bad enough they would find somewhere else to get it done and more than likely it would be unsafe for her “it seems unlikely that making abortion illegal will actually reduce the number of abortions per year.” (Hansen) Abortion should be an option for every woman who is pregnant because if a woman were to become pregnant and she knew she didn’t want a baby or could not provide for it properly, than the baby has no business being born unwanted or poorly taken care of.
