Over 42 million babies are killed in a year because of abortion. That is 115,000 deaths a day. After the case Roe vs Wade was presented to the Supreme Court, abortions have been legal since. In the United States, the topic abortion is very debatable. Many people think that abortion should be illegal because of moral and religious views, while others think that abortion should be legal because of women's’ rights. Despite each view, abortions are becoming more and more common today, especially in the United States. Abortions should be illegal because it is the murder of a human, selfish, and problematic to women's health.
Did you know 80% of women abort their kid if they have down syndrome? Abortion is where they end the baby’s life well it is still in the womb. Abortion has been an issue since the 1960’s and continues to grow today. About 1/4 of pregnancies end in abortion and 1/3 of americans before the age of 45 have gotten an abortion. ( (Guttmacher.) Abortion should be illegal considering the reasons for it, ethics and medical effects.
There are many controversial issues being debated in today’s society; however, one of the more heated issues is abortion. Abortion has been around at almost every point in American history. Consequently, since the Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade there have been approximately 57,762,169 abortions in America (“Are You”). This raises the question of should abortion be legal or illegal, and is this immoral or moral to do? The decision to have an abortion can be a difficult time in a woman’s life, but is not a moral way to end a pregnancy. Abortion in the United States should be illegal because of the effects it has on women, the immorality of killing a baby, and how it affects society.
Did you know that just in the US, more than 1.3 million unborn babies are killed in abortion each year (Teens for Life)? Did you also know that approximately 50 million babies have been killed since abortion was legalized in 1973 (Teens for Life)? Precious, Human Life has been lost. How would it feel if your life would be taken away in just a few minutes? You would have no family, no future, and no life. I believe that Abortion is wrong. Those babies should be given a chance to see the world. Here are some reasons why Abortion is wrong.
At 4 to 5 weeks pain receptors begin to develop. By 18 weeks the unborn fetus can feel more pain even more than an adult. By 14 weeks, the entire body, besides the back and top of the head, are sensitive to pain. The abortionist will tell you that the baby will not feel a thing but that is not the case. In an instillation abortion the chemicals that they use can cause painful burning and deterioration of the baby’s skin. After suffering for an hour the baby dies. The mother has a very high chance of suffering from uncontrolled blood clotting, a severe hemorrhage, central nervous system damage, severe, a coma, and even death. More than eighty million women a year will suffer
Abortion should be illegal in the United States of America. Since abortion was made legal in 1973, almost 57 million babies have been murdered by abortion. At the rate of 2,900 babies aborted a day, or 1,058,500 a year, the death toll is averaging almost double the deaths caused by the “leading cause of death” in the U.S., heart disease. These are 57 million people, who could've grown up to cure cancer, or found a reliable and abundant clean source of energy. Also, women who have had abortions almost always are psychologically affected in some form or another. These affects include, but are not limited to; regret, anger, guilt, shame, sense of loneliness or isolation, anxiety and depression, and suicidal thoughts or feelings/actions. In fact,
The topic of aborting an innocent fetus has been overwhelmingly controversial in the United States. The two sides to this ongoing debate is pro-life advocates and pro-choice advocates. Abortion is the ending of a pregnancy by removing a fetus or embryo before it can survive outside the uterus; whether it is an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. Abortions are most often performed during the first twenty-eight weeks of pregnancy and can be performed as a medical or surgical procedure. Medical abortions include two types of abortion pills; while the surgical procedures include vacuum aspiration and dilation and evacuation. Ultimately, I am one of the many “pro-lifers”, and I strongly agree that abortion should be illegal because it negatively affects our people. Women across the nation are becoming impregnated and following a short amount of judgement time, turn to abortion to solve their problems but in the end hurt themselves with this decision. Abortions should be illegal because it is immoral and unconstitutional, causes severe mental and physical issues, and negatively impacts the economy. “During the ancient Roman times it has been supposed that abortion and the destruction of unwanted children was permissible, but as our civilization has aged, it seems that such acts were no longer acceptable by rational human beings, so that in 1948, Canada along with most other nations in the world signed a declaration of the United Nations promising every human being the right to life”

Jaden is a fifteen year old girl in high school, one night she went to a party with her boyfriend with no parent supervision so there was a lot of underage drinking, she doesn’t remember a lot from the party that night because she was under the influence, but she does remember being upstairs with her boyfriend. A few days later her boyfriend had told her that she needed to take a pregnancy test because he didn’t use protection, later that day she found out that she was pregnant. Jaden is scared to tell her parents that she is pregnant but she knows she has to tell them so they can help her get an abortion. Teens should be able to get an abortion without parental consent because taking care of a child while in high school can be challenging, it can be hard to provide for a child as a teen, and although it means you have to kill your own child, having an abortion is cheaper than taking care of a baby.
Mother Teresa once said “The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between”. Abortion is an intolerable act in which is more of a selfish act more than a selfless act. In the early 1800’s abortion was created in the western part of Europe, as big of a problem it became the Supreme Court legalized it in 1973 but big questions and concerns are still brought up about abortion. Abortion is to be considered the easy way out of responsibility and should not be taken advantage of. Abortion should be illegal because is a dangerous procedure, it’s unethical, and it is murder.
The procedure used for abortion is not only harmful to the baby obviously, but it can be dangerous for the mother both physically and mentally. Many of the risks of abortion include bleeding, infection, damage to organs, and sometimes even death but it is very rare (considering abortion). It is healthier for the woman to have birth than going through this dangerous procedure, and if the mother is not ready or does not want the baby, she can give it up for adoption. It is only fair to the baby to at least give it life to live with a family who adopts it than no life at all. After the abortion is over, women think that they are going to feel relieved to finally get this over with. For most women, this is not the case. After going through the procedure and seeing the baby get removed from their body, they almost always feel immediate regret. Seeing a dead baby the size of the palm of the doctor’s hand catches mothers off guard and traumatizes them and it should. Studies show that most women wish that they had known more about abortion before they got one (considering abortion). So, even though there are physical risks to abortion, the mental risks are the most harmful.
Abortion was outlawed in the eighteenth century, and legalized in the nineteenth century. Ever since the Supreme Court legalized abortion, more than hundreds of abortions are performed daily. Abortion is a constant debate among pro-life and pro-choice. Not everybody believes or agrees with the same point of view. People argue pro-life or pro-choice, if it is murder or not, however, an abortion ends the pregnancy before giving birth thus ending the life of a living unborn child.
This newborn, was not even her husband’s, but the new mother did not have a choice. The man in the ally took everything away from her. She did not have a choice then. She considered taking the little fetus out was going to be so easy, but now sitting here, in this little hospital bed, holding this precious crying bundle of life, it was never her choice to do the same to her baby. To take everything away from her child. But she couldn’t bring herself to do it. She could not take everything from someone who did not even have the voice to say otherwise. Taking the life away from unborn baby is not someone else’s, choice it is theirs.
Lastly but not least, it's really unhealthy for the mother. After the mother has the abortion they can't be around children because it triggers their memory when they had the abortion. Women who have had or getting abortion and have higher anxiety levels or become extremely depressed. Studies have shown that women that have abortions are more likely to commit suicide.
Abortion why is it wrong? How would you feel if someone took away your ability to live. Imagine not having a say in having a life. Well these babies don’t have a choice in their mother’s wombs. I believe abortions are wrong in so many ways.
