(Psalm 127:3) Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. “Abortion is wrong, God doesn’t approve of ending a life just because a person has regrets about how things turned out”, (Genesis 6:6-7). In this scenario it is the parents choice to decide what they want to do but according to Christian Worldview beliefs about God and Humanity, God creates every human and it is only his right to take the life and abortion is simply a murder and God does not allow this. However in this issue Susan got pregnant after trying for long and the fetus is Down syndrome, therefore bring that child into world is suffering but it is also a matter of concern that God gave a life inside her after a long time, maybe it is a God’s blessing to her. Just by knowing that the child will born with some disabilities it is not wise to stop the heat beat of child, Susan should not listen to anyone but just to her heart and belief in God and move forward with her
The ongoing dispute of abortion has condemned the idea of women aborting their unborn child. Whether it be lack of support, critical physical or mental health, rape, or not being ready for such responsibility - all women have a reason for having an abortion. Therefore, women should have the free will to do what proves necessary and beneficial to themselves and their pregnancy.
Abortion is always argued with different cases and play a main role in medical ethics (blackwell.,p291).It is evidently reasonable for some to argue that in moral situation, abortion is a murder and it should be illegal, while others may claim that abortion is woman’s right when concerning on autonomy ( The abortion debate in Australia). Opponents of making abortion legal claim that abortion is a kind of murder on extend of moral situation. It is always regarded as a sin to kill a person who is no aggressor in most moral communities (new ethics 1). Fetus is a biologically human as it is not just a part of the mothers, such as a lung or a kidney. On the contrary, it is obvious that fetus is human due to he or she has genetic code of human and human parents as well (abortion myth p5). Moreover, it has potentiality to be a person with primary moral worth (text book p210-211). As Gillion (new ethics) pointed out, every person has his right to life, especially he is not an aggressor. This point is also been pointed by (Rebecca and john,Blackwell p204), “embryos has a right to life” .The fetus is innocent and
Christians don’t believe that abortion should have happen they say that abortion should not happen because God says that it shouldn’t happen. “For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb” (Psalm 139:13). Christians see that life is sacred to God.
MG does not believe in interfering with nature. Although, she does not oppose embryo harvesting or freezing/genetic manipulation, she believes that women need to use this process “appropriately and responsibly” for women who cannot have children on their own and need some assistance, not for conception posthumously. If a woman is already pregnant and her spouse died, then the baby is entitled to the deceased father’s benefit or inheritance, but not 18 months after the biological father passed away. She believes that a child(ren) needs two parents, a man and woman. Although, society might have different opinions, due to different values and belief systems, about this issue, MG does not believe the church support posthumous delivery, beyond the natural conception cycle. According to MG, for those people who have good support group and want a child(ren), adoption is an option or start a new, meaningful relationship. She believes that this is a complex issue and everyone is entitled to do what they want with their lives, but posthumous conception and requesting the deceased father’s inheritance/benefit 18 months after the passing of the biological father,
Abortion is topic to discuss here. Seeking a Common Ground is the only way to abortion debate. I do have great respect to all women. Like on power point men don’t get pregnant and don’t even realize that their women are pregnant but women always do know every single change on them. I would say, it is better to do abortion than suffer from family issue by having unplanned baby. It could mess the whole family and their career path. I know in certain place it can be immoral, illegal to do abortion after certain time from the pregnancy. People have to think how to provide good upbringing to their kids so it is better to go according to the plan. Therefore, finding a Common Ground is the best way to this problem.
Abortion has always been an issue in the society. It occurs when a person is forced to kill the baby fetus in the womb of the mother. It is very painful to the mother as she is losing her own child but there are always circumstances and conditions in life that lead a mother to take these harsh step. But sometimes, women do abortion when the fetus has already started to take a form of a baby.
This is not to say that as a Christian supporting the pro-life idea is a bad, but rather one should consider the lives of women that will have to go through hell if they decide to keep the baby in the womb. In other words, I know most Christians support the idea of pro-life; however, think about the negative effects or side effects of giving birth to a baby you don’t want, which can lead a woman to a miserable life. Think about this, what will you say to a woman who was raped and got pregnant? Will you tell her to still keep the baby? That is a decision that a woman who got raped must decide, which is really hard to do if there are policies to ban abortion.
What I see happening in this story is if she has the baby the man might leave her, so either way she could possibly be raising the baby on her own. I can’t imagine loving someone as much as he says he loves her. Loving someone that much, one would not make that person make a decision he or she obviously did not want to make. He has left her no choice really, either have the baby and raise it without the father possibly or to have the abortion, which she really don’t want to have, and go back to the life with just the two of them. “And once they take it away, you never get it back.” (488) Either decision I feel is not the right one for this couple because they both could
Your Pleasure Should Not Be My Pain: The imagery in Mark Wills Don't Laugh at Me It would be nice if we were all accepted just as is, and loved unconditionally. Mark Wills is an American country music singer, and in his video, “Don't Laugh at Me” that is just not the case for some. There are many people in the world who have been or are bullied, judged or laughed at just for being themselves.
I made sure that I supported her throughout, and after the process. After discussing the event with her a few additional times I have definitely changed my view on abortion, and I have learned to be more open-minded. Additionally, I now realize that being open-minded does not just mean that you can listen and understand other people’s views, but that you must also be able to accept the decisions they make based on those
The dilemma at hand is more one of deciding for the better. This unplanned pregnancy happening as well as having the option of abortion, is a road of major emotional tolls; as well as subject to outer judgement which would be a difficult one at best. What makes it difficult has a lot of varying factors. It’d be more
However, to those who believe that abortion is ethical, one can reason that since the foetus is not developed yet, no soul will be abolished. Therefore abortion is ethical because women have the right to decide their own choices of maternity.
