Because of anti-abortion legislation women avoid going to the hospital, often until it is too late, to avoid prosecution from police. In the cases of rape and incest the very idea of being forced to have the child of the woman's abuser is repulsive. There are also cases when a woman's health is put in jeopardy by having a child at all, forcing such a woman to bring a child to term, would be no less than attempted murder. If a woman is forced to give birth to a child she does not want, if left in that woman's custody, the child could potentially face hatred and resentment from the mother for the rest of it's life. In countries all over the world, children are found dead and abandoned in places as degrading as garbage dumps.
“Statistical studies have repeatedly shown that people’s views on abortion are best predicted by their opinions on sex and “family” issues, not on “life” issues like nuclear weapons or the death penalty.” Willis, page 513. Women have many reasons for not wanting to be pregnant so they seek abortions. Many of these reasons are related to being mentally unprepared. One main reason why women get abortions is unintended pregnancy. A woman between the ages of 18-25 would consider abortion because she may have plans for her future that does not allow her at the present time to care for a child.
Other women may not want children because of the money, time, and responsibility needed to take care of a child. If in the future abortions are made illegal the amount of deaths because of unsafe abortion methods used when a women is desperate for one. “God send us someone to cure cancer, AIDS, etc., etc.” “I did but you forced her to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, forcing her to become a single mother with limited income, having to sacrifice her college dreams in order to provide for her unwanted child.”
Most abortions occur because contraception fails, because of a rape or because of a serious medical condition of the mother, which could lead to her death. In these situations abortion is often the only way that prevents the birth of an unwanted child or saves a mothers life. In the world today pregnancy often has catast... ... middle of paper ... ...eering there are many pros and cons for each. What it mainly comes down to is how each individual perceives each situation of abortion and genetic engineering. If one person sees abortion as a women’s choice and can back up his views with proof that it would be better for the mother, then do not try to destroy their views.
Having unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy and possibly contracting a Sexually Transmitted Diseases. I’ve always told myself that I would not have one child, unless I am in a position to afford two children. Many people decide to have an abortion because they can’t afford a child or “isn’t ready” if you let them tell it. Abortion is murder when women begin to use it as a form of birth control. Some women have unprotected sex and adopt the theology of, “I’ll just abort it if I become pregnant”.
Over 70 thousand maternal deaths occur every year because of unsafe abortions. These women died, so the idea of supporting pro-life is contradictory, this nation should be pro-choice not pro-life, a woman’s reproductive system should not be regulated by the government. In the State of Texas as of October 11, 2011 the law requires women seeking abortions to have 2 ultrasounds, and at least one 24 hours prior to the procedure. This law is an attempt to change the decision of the patient. What about the woman who were forced to sexual activity and had become pregnant by no fault of their own.
Abortion has been one of the biggest controversies of all time. Many people believe it is immoral and even consider it to be murder. The definition of abortion is; “The termination of pregnancy by the removal or expulsion from the uterus of a fetus or embryo prior to being capable of normal growth.” 1 These pro-life believers do not support the idea of induced abortion and believe it should be illegal. Many of these supporters do not know that if abortion were illegal they would still be performed, unfortunately by an uneducated staffs. Over 70 thousand maternal deaths occur every year because of unsafe abortions1.
Although, nearly all women who forego the procedure of an abortion were already on a form of contraception drug, so the baby is clearly unwanted. Adoption isn’t the same as an abortion, because it should be the woman’s choice on if she wants to put her body through the stresses of a pregnancy. Also, many women who have their babies don’t just give them up for adoption, and in both cases, the child is bound to feel unwanted at some point.
They feel that they should have the right to terminate their unborn baby because it?s no one else?s business. Many issues about abortions are is there any short and long term effects, parental protection with their children having to decide to terminate a child, churches issues on how it is a sin to kill a child which according to the church should have happen unless they are married. The research about abortions, many people still needs a lot to learn.
Of course, they already do now, but I believe that abortion should only be available to girls 14 to 17 years of age. A 14 year olds brain is not fully developed and they believe that having a baby will make them seem more independent or that having a baby will make the person they engage in sexually with want to be with them forever. Of course it is not always the case. There are girls who engage in sex and the last thing they want is to... ... middle of paper ... ...s she pleases. From the time they are born to the time they die, a woman will never truly be able to do what she wants to do with her body because of social critique, pear pressure or laws that out ban what they can do.
