The answer to the question should abortion be legal is a resounding no. There are always alternatives to abortion, despite whether people acknowledge them or not. This is the case, especially, in instances such as a rape or a cephalopelvic disproportion; the cases where people say there is ambiguity in the morality of abortion. Although this is not the most popular answer among citizens, abortion just has no real reason to be legal. Although there will be much opposition to the claim, when abortion is legal, it allows for selfishness, despite its clear alternative.
The purpose of this paper is to show how the states are creating laws to try and prohibit abortions and how these laws are putting unnecessary hardships on the women trying to receive them.
Abortion, one of the most controversial ongoing issues, has become common in the United States. There are a lot of reasons defending the legalization of abortion. However, understanding the medical information and perspectives on abortion can solve this controversial issue. Unlike the common knowledge that abortion is performed in an unsafe setting and has the potential long-term complications, abortion is actually performed by professions and has few complications if it is performed within twelve weeks of pregnancy.
Almost half the pregnancies every year are unintentional, and about four in every ten pregnancies are ended by abortion. A lot of people can find pros to having abortions, while the same amount of people can find cons. Many researchers have investigated problems with having abortions. Due to all the laws that are currently being put in place everywhere, abortions are expected to decline, but some people still do not understand the dangers to them. Abortion should be considered illegal in the United States due to the understanding that technically it is murder; therefore, laws such as Roe vs Wade should be repealed indefinitely.
Abortion is the termination of a human pregnancy by choice. A U.S Supreme Court case on January 22, 1973(Roe v. Wade) ruled that unduly restrictive state regulation of abortion is unconstitutional. Although this court case essentially decriminalized abortion, the morality behind it is still heavily questioned 44 years later. Movements such as pro-life and pro-choice have both made strides in converting their beliefs into legislation. However despite the legal progress both sides have made, abortion continues to be an ethnically divisive topic.
Abortion should be outlawed because it harms women. During abortion much damage and health disorders happen to women. A lot of children are murdered every year in the United States. There are different kinds of families in the world. Most of those families care about their children. On the other hand, some women, especially teenagers, often get pregnant and do not understand the consequences. When this happens, they think the only solution for their pregnancy is abortion which is violation of the most fundamental law of nature. Many people regret having an abortion. This practice should be outlawed because it harms women, violates human rights, and kills unborn children.
“I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion is already born,” stated our 40th president, Ronald Reagan. Like President Reagan, I am also pro-life meaning I think abortion should be outlawed. There are many downsides to having an abortion. One of these is abortion defies the constitution. It causes many problems for men and women later in life as well. Finally, abortion is also the killing of an innocent baby.
To this very day abortion has become a very sensitive issue worldwide. Known as a moral and ethical issue, abortion is an issue society should come to terms with. Abortion became legal on January 22, 1973 since women have the right to freedom and the choice to live their life as they please.
Abortion is one of the most controversial topics of all time. It has caused countless deaths and several violent confrontations between the two side of the argument. The fight between pro-life and pro-choice supporters has always been a lengthy topic up for debate. This is because, despite what several people may believe, abortion is neither right nor wrong. It is the matter of a personal opinion where each side can say with assurance that the other one is wrong.
Abortion is a topic that a lot of people either shy away from and do not want to talk about or are very quick to fill you in on their opinions and has been a highly debated topic ever since the Roe v. Wade Supreme court decision in 1973. Even before Roe v. Wade, most people had a clear view of where they stand on the issue. In recent years this debate has been growing more and more popular. Whether one considers the fetus or is on side of the mother, the Constitution can be related back to abortion. The pressing question is, is the procedure constitutional? According to those who are pro-choice and the Ninth Amendment which protects all rights not specifically named earlier in the Constitution, then yes, it is. What is not
There have been an increasing number of abortion cases throughout the world. This scenario has been fuelled by among other factors social and economic factors. Abortion is the termination of pregnancy. It is the removal of the foetus before it is viable. It is usually done before the foetus gets to 25 weeks old. It is either spontaneous or induced abortion. Abortion refers to the induced type (Malcolm 1977 page 12).
adoption is always a possibility. The baby is still a human being and does not deserve to die simply because of someone’s bad choice. “The United States is one of around 60 countries that provide legal access to “safe” abortions. Although abortion has been legal in the US since 1973, access to treatment depends on laws determined by each state, and most states have established gestational limits that vary from 20 to 24 weeks” (Mackintosh, Eliza). Mackintosh states this to prove that most of the countries accept abortions and make it legal for the mothers if they choose to do this. Most state abortion laws in the U.S. state that a mother can abort their child until about 20-24 weeks. 20-24 weeks is over half way of the pregnancy, at that point that the baby is fully formed and just continues to grow and strengthen. So therefore, that baby is considered a human being and at that point it is basically considered murder to abort the child. I believe that abortion is not acceptable and should not be a choice for mothers.
Americans pride themselves in giving everything a right to a voice, not discriminating against race, sexuality, and beliefs. Americans also try to be a voice for animals, trees, every species, and the earth. However, they are missing one very important group to give rights to: that is fetuses. Every fetus has the potential to be the next Einstein, the person to cure cancer, or the person that ends world hunger. Still, many of these potential geniuses are not thought to be human and are killed in the womb. Due to characteristics that a fetus possess, every fetus should be classified as a living organism separate and unique from the mother.
In a world of a human population of 7.3 billion people increasing to the point that the world can flood, more than half of the population are arguing on the practice of killing unborn fetuses. There is about growing population of 7.3 billion humans and the United Nations (UN) estimates that the population growth will reach up to 11.2 billion by 2100 (World Population). Also, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), a specialized agency of the UN, reports that between the years of 2010-2014, about 56 million women have induced abortion, but 22 million unsafe abortion were estimated (“Unsafe Abortions”). Abortion is a procedure where people end their pregnancy before birth. Concerning the safety of women and the Earth overpopulating, abortion should be legal in all states.
Abortion is one of the most tense talks in America. The split ideas about the debate spark heated politics. The Tennessee Electronic Library defines an abortion as, “an abortion is a medical or surgical procedure that deliberately ends a pregnancy before an embryo or fetus is born” (Abortions). Those who think the procedure is right believe that the act is a human right. Pro-life supporters are usually against for ethical or religious reasons. Abortion is the battle that makes America split.
