Many of us don’t notice but the laws regarding abortion have some effects on every one of us one way or the other. It might be someone we know who went through an abortion and might be having problem coping with it that we are unaware of. I don’t personally know anyone who went through abortion but I believe that abortion is no better than a murder of an innocent child. The decision to go through abortion is not women’s alone, many men pressurize women because they don’t want the child and neglect the consequences it can have on women’s health. Being a religious person, I believe that life begi... ... middle of paper ... ...some research along with the help of politics will help solve our problem of abortion.
National healthcare is a major issue in congress with abortion being “the bitter pill” to have to swallow. The abortion issue has stalled the passing of a much needed healthcare reform bill, and there appears to be no consensus in the near future. With sex education, the morning after pill, and soon the male form of “the pill”. Proper education and distribution of products can make contraceptives easier to obtain, and are more cost effective. Contraceptives of today make abortion an unnecessary procedure for women’s reproductive health, and have also made conception of a child in the majority of cases, outside of rape and incest, a choice.
People should not restrict other's rights based on their personal morals. Sometimes an abortion is the best solution and who is anyone else to say that it is not. If abortions are made illegal they could cause more deaths than they actually save. This problem can be prevented either way. Whether you are “pro-choice” or “pro-life” you should be able to agree that schools should implement classes that teach about safe sex rather than shelter their children about the reality of sex and its repercussions.
Carol Everett once said “The product abortion, is skillfully marketed and sold to the women at a crisis time in her life. She buys the product, finds it defective and wants to return it for a refund, but it is too late.” Abortion is one of the most controversial topics amongst not only politicians but also every human being alive; rather they are pro-choice or pro-life. I am personally in between; I believe that is the choice of that particular woman. We can not as a society decide the choices of others, especially if it is not a written law. But also I believe that it is murder.
Many of the reasons for wanting an abortion include, that it would interfere with work, they cannot afford a child, and they are a single parent. They believe that people should have unlimited independence, including making their own decisions regarding their reproductive systems. The main conflict between these two groups is that Pro-Life believes that an undeveloped human life is sacred and the government should protect, while the pro-choice group believes that the government should not intervene with a women’s right to decide whether or not if she wants to continue on with her
ACLU has protected the rights of abortion for women, and in recent years has argued mayor cases opposing restrictions that deny woman access to reproductive health care (“ACLU”). Policy 263 states: “The ACLU holds that every woman, as a matter of her right to the enjoyment of life, liberty, and privacy, should be free to determine whether and when to bear children.”(The American Civil Liberties Union) The closure of abortion clinics will be done with the purpose to reduce the number of abortions. This raises the question whether this will be an effective method or not. Before 1973 abortions were illegal yet the number of women who sought abortions did not decrease (“abortion”). Before 1973 many thousands of women died or suffered serious medical problems after attempting to perform their own abortions, or going to untrained doctors who performed cheap abortions with uncivilized methods or in unsanitary conditions (The Abortion Law Homepage.).
The Abortion Debate in the 2004 Presidential Election Abortion is a major issue that affects individual lives daily. It has become a debatable factor in determining the solution in having the free choice for a woman to abort their unborn baby. Even though it was not fully recognized in the presidential election, there was discussion as to whether or not it is morally right to perform this practice. President Bush believes that aborting an unborn baby is morally wrong because he believes in protecting the rights of the unborn and believes that partial birth abortion is a vicious act that discriminates against children who are inches away from life. On the opposing side is Senator Kerry, who believes that aborting an unborn child should be permitted because he believes in protecting women’s choices and enforcing women’s privacy rights.
Abortion is one of the most controversial subjects in America. Despite the Supreme Court ruling that has allowed abortion, there is an ongoing debate over whether abortion is right. Some people that are pro-life say that abortion is like genocide, murder of millions that has been taking place legally in America since 1973. On the contrary, those that are pro-choice argue that abortion is not like genocide because it is not murder. The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution guarantees that no one be deprived of life or liberty.
The reason why women were seeking... ... middle of paper ... ...ke birth control, not make the man use a condom, and do other precautions to avoid pregnancies. If abortions weren’t allowed, it would make them more responsible because then they would have to think twice about what they are doing. For the man, if he knows that he can’t financially and mentally take care of a child, then he will think twice about who and how he is having sexual intercourse with. It decreases the responsibility in both men and women when making abortion legal. Due to the high number of abortions that happen yearly, we as one country need to fix it.
Though, the real crime would be to rob women of their rights and well-being. Abortions should stay legal because the absence of legal abortions will mean rise in dangerous illegal abortions, abortions are a woman’s right, and motherhood has a negative effect on women who aren’t ready. If abortions are banned, it will only provoke illegal abortions, which are particularly hazardous to women’s health. “The proportion of abortion patients who were poor increased by almost 60%, from 27% in 2000 to 42% in 2008” (Clark-Flory). “Back alley” abortions are still available to the desperate who cannot afford a better illegal abortions.
