Abortion Abortion has been a very controversial issue in the United States for the past several decades. Many people think that is it morally wrong. To say that something is morally wrong is an opinion. Since everyone’s opinions are different on this topic there have been many court cases and protests
24 percent of women having abortions are unmarried teenagers. Pregnancy can be a scary and extremely stressful time in a women?s life. To force a woman who is not ready for a child to go through with the birth is not the answer. Stress is not good for the fetus at all, and could lead to complications in the pregnancy, or even a miscarriage. People also seem to forget about a women?s mental health in these situations. A woman could be haunted for her lifetime of giving birth to an unborn child.
Should women have the right to choose abortion as a means of terminating a pregnancy, instead of carrying a fetus to full term? Since the US Supreme Court granted women the right to abortion in 1973, the general population has been divided among those that support (pro-choice) and those oppose (pro-life) the ruling. In 2013, 664,435 legal induced abortions were reported to the Centers for Disease Control.(Jatlaoui) By definition, abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy. Just as terminating the life of another human being is wrong and punishable by law, terminating the life of a fetus is likewise wrong, and should no longer be upheld as a legal method for ending the life of a human being.
A young woman has been sexually abused her whole life. As a child, her uncle molested her; as she got older, it got worse. Her father, a drunken individual, abused her mom and her. She was laying in bed sleeping, when suddenly her door flies open. She becomes aware
Abortion is one of the most controversial topics around the world. In my opinion, the reason why terminating a pregnancy is such a controversial topic is because so many people think abortion is one of the worse things you can do because of their religious beliefs or for their own personal reasons. My feelings about a woman, young or old, getting an abortion is very neutral because even though every woman have a right to do what they feel is best for themselves and for their fetus some young girls get abortions and never learn anything from that experience. Ultimately, it is never easy for a woman to make a decision about terminating a pregnancy, especially when so many people frown down upon it.
While approximately 50% of females are affected at an older age and can’t have babies any more. This risky method, can end your life and affect your body later on. If you’re not planning on having babies use protection that could prevent pregnancy. After all, abortion is a dangerous procedure and legal abortion should be eliminated from all states of the United States. A girl named Kathy was pregnant at age 14 she found out during her 20 weeks pregnant, she said that she needed advice before making her choice and has experienced trauma since then. Kathy who experiences abortion regrets making the decision she says, “The decision to abort my child was not a solution to a problem, but the source of many of my problems from then
Imagine this: a woman learns she is about to become a new mother. Words cannot describe the amount of love and joy she already feels for her soon to be child. She now knows her fetus will depend on her body until it is born. It will need her in order to grow and become healthy enough to survive in the harsh world outside of the womb. But, let us imagine this new mother is a smoker; she now has a decision to make for herself that affects her baby directly. She could continue to smoke and potentially give birth to a baby with complications like birth defects, or she could quit smoking for the sake of her baby’s health and personally manage the side effects accompanying quitting. To most people, her decision should be obvious, especially when
Abortion is the number one killer in the United States, as it kills 1.3 million unborn babies, meaning there is an abortion every thirty seconds. Abortion is considered to not be murdered as the fetus is not yet considered alive, however life comes at conception. The consent to having sex isn’t the consent to get pregnant, however it is consent to the possibility. A mother may be harmed by an unwanted baby, but if there is an abortion the baby receives much more. Abortion should be banned, as it is the murder of a human, having sex is the consent to the possibility of becoming pregnant so it is their responsibility, and lastly as not getting an abortion can have negative effects for the mother, having an abortion has even worse effects for the baby.
In her Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, Mother Teresa states: “The greatest destroyer of peace in the world today is the cry of the innocent unborn child… To me, the nations that have legalized abortion, they are the poorest nations” (Mother Teresa - Acceptance Speech). Abortion is one of the most controversial social justice issues facing the world today. A woman facing an unplanned pregnancy chooses to end the life of her preborn child by means of abortive pills or surgery. Several nations have legalized this depriving an unborn child of his or her right to life. These nations justify their decision by saying that a woman deserves to choose what she does with her body. Since it can cause serious health concerns for the mother, and pro-life alternatives exist, abortion should be illegal so as to not deprive anyone of their right to life.
Feminism is a hot topic in this world. Many people, both women and men, identify as feminists and fight for what they believe is right. But feminism is not a clear cause. The dictionary definition of feminism is, “the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of
We Need To Stop This! I was pregnant at the age of eighteen. My decision to continue my pregnancy wasn’t an easy one. I knew the odds were against my succeeding at just about anything. Thirteen years have passed and I feel my decision to continue my pregnancy was the right decision. Two of my close friends choose to have abortions around the same time that I choose not to. Like me, they feel they made the right choice. All three of us made the decision that was right for us. Our circumstances were not the same; we came from different backgrounds, had different beliefs, and our available resources both financial and support systems were different. To this day we are very close friends who continue to accept and respect each other’s choices
Against Abortion Most people don’t know the pros and cons of abortion? Abortion is what a female does for various reasons, but many times for all the wrong reasons. There is multiple different ways females could go to rather than to just choose the worst way. Even though some people think
Abortion of course is a terrible thing, you have to put yourself under the knife and actually think “am I really going to go through with this, is this what I want?” No matter what, no one really wants to abort their child; there is always more to it. Some people feel that if they bring a child into this world it is their responsibility no matter what to be there for them whether they could afford it or not. Some people are just not financially stable or emotionally prepared to give away they’re child to someone else because they won’t be the one raising the kid. No child should ever get the feeling where they feel that their parents are “stuck” with them; all women should have their own rights to their body.
Many women find themselves in situations that leave them with an unwanted pregnancy and abort their baby. The cause of abortion could simply be a birth control failure, from rape or incest, inability to take care of the child, or in most cases, pressure from others. Whatever the case may be, these women have chosen to get rid of their child, without thinking of the consequences after it is done. After a mother chooses to abort her baby, she will be greatly affected psychologically and could possibly change her and her future family’s life forever.
