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.
“Pro-life” believers do take instances into consideration where an abortion may be performed, such as rape and or incest abortion. They believe that life begins at contraception which would mean that anyone who decides to have an abortion would be murdering their potential child. Pro-life believers feel as though abortion should be illegal and that it is also immoral. Unless it is health related, they do not take the mother into consideration. They believe that at the moment the mother consented to sexual intercourse she takes on the responsibility of giving birth.
I can understand where the medical staff would want to save the mother’s life in a life-threatening situation. However, the medical staff should do everything in their power to prevent them from doing the abortion, no matter what the mother wants to do. I know by going against the mother’s wishes wouldn’t be right, however, an abortion is immoral. Adoption is always an option if the mother doesn’t want her child. Abortion is legal in the United States, however, that doesn’t make it
But to say that the child deserves death is to punish a totally innocent bystander. He (or she) had nothing to do with his mother's rape, but now he should be killed? The baby is a living human being, not a cancer that has to be cut out." Randy Alcom There is a large controversial issue on abortion there are two different sides to the argument on whether abortion is justifiable those who believe that abortion should be legalised either in certain cases or on demand (pro-choice) and those who believe abortion is wrong and unjust in every case (pro-life). With pro-choice there are two categories- (a) Those who believe abortion should be legalised and therefore women can have abortion whenever they choose, for example, financial reasons, the mother wants to pursue a career, overcrowding in the home (other children may feel neglected by a new baby in the family), these are social reasons for having an abortion.
Instead of viewing abortion as "murder," society as a whole must consider abortion as a necessary alternative, for women who have to bare the trauma of rape and incest. Do we as a society have a right to tell women that they legally do not have a right to an abortion? Works Cited Jacoby, Kerry N.. Souls, bodies, spirits the drive to abolish abortion since 1973. Westport, Conn.: Praeger, 1998.
Among the many disagreements, some of the most common dealt with issues such as the right to live which makes abortion morally same as murder, along with a women having reproductive rights and the different circumstances that justify having an abortion such as abortion due to rape. In this paper we will briefly explore the pros and cons of these issues. One of the biggest issue of abortion goes back to the controversial question of when human life actually begins. Many people will often argue that a fetus is a living being from the moment of conception and feel that it deserves the same legal protections as an adult, therefore making it immoral to kill it. Just like in our court system, we would not put an innocent person on death penalty.
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.
Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy so that it does not result in the birth of a child. It is no secret the topic of abortion is widely debated. There are two main sides to this controversy: pro-choice and pro-life. Pro-choice supports the right of women to choose whether or not to go to full term with their pregnancy. Pro-life promotes the protection of the fetus, especially by outlawing abortion by equating it to murder.
Five thousand women died yearly from abortion prior to the Roe v. Wade decision, but the number of deaths for every 100,000 ... ... middle of paper ... ...dopted it will grow up without a mother or a father and not have the life it deserves. How is that better than abortion if the child is alive but miserable? All in all, women should be able to choose what they want to do with their own bodies. Even if you don't believe abortion should be legal, a woman in a different circumstance might think differently and have different needs. She might have a solid reason such as rape or incest or a medical reason where she would suffer terrible harm from going through with the pregnancy.
The majority of women who have abortions, were on birth control. Birth control is not 100% effective. So, if a women becomes pregnant while on birth control, shouldn’t she have the right to have an abortion if she doesn’t believe she could care for a child at that time? As healthcare professionals, we have to set aside our own personal beliefs and show support to our patient’s if they choose to have an abortion. Patient care if our main concern.
