“Did you know that every 20 seconds one baby is aborted?” (Mull 1). There are many arguments about if abortion should be illegal. Some women may say that it is their body and they should be able to do what they please with it, but a baby is innocent and it should have the chance to live a full life of laughter and grow to be a responsible adult. Abortion should not be an option for women no matter what the circumstance. 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).
Pro-Choice. Why be pro-choice one may ask? Being pro-choice means advocating abortion or having the choice to have an abortion. Abortion should stay a option for pregnant women because many of them are not financially ready to support a child financially or emotionally. Millions of unintended pregnancies in the United States each year end in abortion, as it is a way of saving the mother and the child a life of struggle.
Therefore, I subscribe to Don Marquis view on Abortion in his article “Why abortion is immoral”. Don Ma... ... middle of paper ... ...These women would adopt the children who would’ve been otherwise aborted. Adoption presents the option for mothers who are neither financially or emotionally equipped for raising a baby. Moreover by not legalizing abortion you are saving many to-be mothers from aborting there to-be babies by force.
Approximately one million teens get pregnant and give birth every year in the United States. Eighty percent of those births are to unmarried teens (ProQuest). There are serious consequences for teen pregnancy for the child as well as for the mother. The opportunity to a bright future dwindles down with such a high responsibility; a child. Many teens who end up pregnant do not finish high school and are less likely even consider going to college.
This happens because women are not ready to financially support a child and can not care for the child that would be innocently brought into the world. Women, who might be forced to carry out until full term, can often become depressed and the children who are unwanted can be abused, not cared for, unloved, and abandoned. It is also found that children who ... ... middle of paper ... ...ot have a say in what they should be able to do with their own bodies. A fundamental right, that is promised, needs to always be sustained and will benefit the economy as a whole. A study was found that there are “No mental health consequences of abortion compared to carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term.
Many reasons come up on why abortion is a good thing, an example is that women explain that having a baby would dramatically change their lives. In which a child could interfere with their education, employment, and the ability to take care of other dependents. The topic of abortion has been discussed in many ways including positive and negative ways in the United States, an understanding of why women seek abortion has been missing from the discussion. Approximately 1.21 million women per year have abortions, individuals do not publicly talk about their abortion experiences
In my country people tend of have abortion if they have baby before get married because the family and society both denies you with hatred. Leaving a life with hatred and no family support for rest of life gives better decision to abort the baby as fetus and life a happy life. It’s said only a mother knows what she has to go through to give birth to a child, all the pain and that’s just the beginning, for unwanted child. Abortion is a helping hand for people to make their choice, choice to life happy life.
The actions should exploit the good, and pleasure and pain should be taken in to account. Even if sacrifices have to be made, they... ... middle of paper ... ...tions or just because the mother was simply too young to have a child and cannot take care of him/her. There could even be an increase of homeless people because of unplanned babies. I think the woman would be the one who would suffer most if abortion was not legal, so in the end, she should have the final decision on whether to have the baby or not according to what she thinks would produce the most happiness for herself and the fetus. I think every child should have a happy life and should not suffer as a child from, for example, lack of food, and therefore, if abortion is the necessary step to take in order to prevent a cruel life for the child, then so be it.
The average woman comes up with at least three excuses for having an abortion; ¾ say they if they have the baby it will interfere with work or school, another ¾ say they can’t afford this child and ½ say they don’t want to be a single parent or they’re having too many complications with their significant other. What if you were one of these woman coming up with an excuse as to why you can’t have this child? Would you really want to go through with killing it instead of having it? Even though it is wrong to have woman continue pregnancy when rape or incest has occurred or if this pregnancy affects the woman’s health and well-being, it is also wrong to take someone’s life from them. I am against this because back in 2008 approximately 1.21 million abortions took place in the US.
darkness in your heart which you once had? But when you decide to have another baby and the timing is wrong and you decide to keep think about that advice about supporting abortion. Others that strongly disapprove of abortions believe in other methods such as: adoption, surrogacy, and group homes. People don’t realize that there are many more ways to give a child up than just killing them. Adoption is a worthwhile alternative to abortion and achieves the same result.
