Women may argue that abortion is not murder because when it is performed the bad has not fully developed and it does not become a real person until it has been delivered from the mother’s body (Messerli 4). The government should not be able to control what women can do with their body. If she does not want to have the baby she should not be forced into doing it (1). Abortions are in fact safe to be performed and does not cause the baby pain. Adoption is not simply the correct solution for having an abortion because if abortion was completely banned then there would be too many babies to be adopted and over the years it would pile up and become overwhelming (“Should abortion be” 2).
For instance, not being able to take care of the baby psychically and emotionally. Some may argue that abortions for raped victims is a horrific idea however, those who have not experienced the physical and emotional damage should not have a say in what she should do with her body.
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.
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.
A mother who chooses to have sex must take responsibility for her child once it is born; the child should not be deprived of his or her basic rights guaranteed by the Constitution (“Abortion ProCon.org”). When people stop being accountable for their actions, pandemonium will set in. A woman may not simply pass off the responsibility; they must face the consequence of their actions. Along with the denial of responsibility, abortion hurts our society by promoting a corrupt thought process that a human life is disposable and irrelevant. Randy Hultgren, a United States representative (R-IL) says this about abortion: “When we tell one another that abortion is okay, we reinforce the idea that human lives are disposable, that we can throw away anything or anyone that inconveniences us” (“Abortion ProCon.org”).
Those are things that teens don't see or understand and well by someone explaining to them it'll help them out to at least consider abortion. Over all abortion should be banned. Everyone deserves the right to live. A baby does not have to suffer consequences from an irresponsible parent. A parent who knows better than to be having sex at a young age.
Even if a woman’s life is at stake through being pregnant or giving birth, it is impossible to place a higher value on one life over another. Who are mere humans that we should decide who lives or dies? Abortions are the choice to end the life of a child, and no one has the right to make that cho... ... middle of paper ... ...zed, how does it make sense that we are legally exterminating people in an attempt to avoid the consequences of our actions? As Gunnarson says, “The welfare of mother and child should never be at odds. Both mother and child are helped by preserving life, not by perpetuating violence.” Works Cited Gunnarson, Camilla.
Killing a person is illegal in the United States. So, why shouldn’t abortion be illegal too? Any baby that is reproduced should receive a chance to live. Everyone should have a life and have the opportunity to experience living. The woman having the newborn doesn’t have an obligation to keep the baby.
Advocates of Pro Life are consistently perusing abortion, stating that it is morally wrong, and unethical in all matters, even if the pregnancy is inadvertent. There are factors remaining in today’s society that are very forthcoming and are unanticipated by women in the prevention of pregnancy. If medical doctors abolished the procedure, or if the government made it even more difficult to obtain an abortion, we wouldn’t be supporting the righteousness of many women in the U.S. today. If contraception, in all forms, were 100% effective, then abortion could be abolished. Until medical research and testing finds a foolproof contraceptive, abortion is morally permissible because of obvious factors that are uncontrollable.
