Abortion is one of the most controversial and highly debatable issues in the United States today. This hot topic has put both the supporting and opposing sides in an uproar to defend their positions. In abortion, a fetus is deliberately terminated from the woman’s womb. Though there are several different methods of abortion, they all aim to rid of the potential child. When carefully reading descriptions of the techniques to abort a fetus, one does not shrug it off their shoulders and write it off as morally acceptable.
Becoming a mother can be a very intimidating experience, everyone has fears and concerns. However, PPD is much worst than that, it=s an emotional, physical, and mental depression. It=s a severe form of AThe New Baby Blues. @ PPD occurs due to the unbalance of hormones during pregnancy trying to recover. The body endures so many changes during pregnancy it=s difficult for a female to just bounce back to her pre-motherhood self.
These changes may be a rude awakening, but they can add new stresses and drama to your life. (Health & Pregnancy 1) How can it affect the baby and its mother? Well everything the mother do, it has an effect on the child and vice versa. It's almost as the mother and child is 1 person but its 2 people. One activity can cause a severe harm to either one but mainly the baby growing inside the womb.
However, people have misused this law. They do abortion simply because they do not want to have a baby. How ironic. The anti-abortionists are in defiance fighting against abortion through different media, awareness campaigns and motivational talks, telling people that abortion is not right and trying to keep the young people on the right track. Yet, we listens, watches and read news about abortion.
On the other hand, some people believe that carrying and delivering the unborn child will hinder the safety of the mother, then an abortion is needed. Each view has its own merit in the debate. This debate has separated the public into two sections: pro-life and pro-choice. A pro-lifer opposes abortion, whereas, a pro-choicer believes that the decision to abort the child should be left to the mother because she is the one carrying the child. In this paper, there will be topics that will be discussed concerning pro-life and pro-choice.
Abortion: A Controversial Issue One of the major controversial issues confronting the society today is abortion. I choose abortion as the topic of discussion since it contradicts my values and beliefs. Abortion is the extraction of the human fetus from the mother’s womb with an intention to end the life of that fetus prior to its natural birth. The controversy surrounding abortion is whether it should be legalized or not? In my opinion, abortion is morally and ethically wrong because it leads to violation of human rights.
For those that make the decision to terminate their pregnancy, stigmas and negative stereotypes are often used to label the women as irresponsible, murderous, selfish and not a mother. In 1945, “The Mother” by Gwendolyn Brooks, challenged these conventional assumptions by forcing its audience to renegotiate the stigmas surrounding abortion and recognize the struggles that follow, while also redefining what qualifies as motherhood. The use of pronouns, thoughtful stanza organization, and an eliciting title, stylistically unite to express that abortion is not always a desirable choice for a woman but that the decision inflicts emotional turmoil that continues to trouble these women. Most importantly, it demonstrates that the choice can be a selfless endurance of pain made in the best interest of the child, an action viewed as characteristic of motherhood. The use of pronouns evolves throughout the poem, mirroring the evolution of the poem in its contention that abortion is not always a desirable choice for a woman and that the decision comes with hardship.
The American Medical Association wanted to make abortions unlawful in the late 1850’s and that is when people became at odds with one another on the subject (Nossiff, 2000, p. 1). There is a certain humiliation in society today when a woman is linked to an abortion. In most cases, the instinct of most objectors is the woman is at fault for becoming pregnant because she did not practice safe sex. In countless cases, this is not the situation. A woman can merely forget to take her birth control pill one day, which could result in her becoming pregnant.
This procedure is the mother and father’s decision to make to choose to not give birth to the baby. Abortion should be made illegal not just in the United States but also worldwide because abortion can cause a lot complication, it takes the live of innocents, it has effects and permanent damage in people’s lives and it can also increase the rate of death. One of the primary reasons that abortion should be illegal is that it causes a lot of complications for women to have health problems that can lead to death. One of the things that cause complication to women’s health is having unsanitary abortion; women tend to receive abortion from people who are unskilled. (Shahbazi).
Looking at Abortion Abortion is 'the intentional destruction of a foetus or the inducing of a premature expulsion from the womb to cause its death'. This definition sounds rather barbaric and it leads us to ask who could support such an idea. In looking at the case for abortion, there are a number of groups in support of this such as the National Abortion Campaign who want us to realise that usually the woman who is having the baby is best qualified to judge what is the right decision. There is a large difference of opinion over when life begins and it is argued that a minority of people have no right to impose their views on the rest of us. A foetus is only a potential human life in that it is not fully developed and there can be no argument about the humanity of the woman carrying the child.
