Abortion was legalized in 1973, and since then approximately one million and five hundred thousand babies have been aborted each year. Abortion in medical textbook is technically defined as the termination of a pregnancy in any way before the fetus has reached the stage of viability. Many of the women who had the abortion done were not told about the procedure or the risks involved, and not informed about the development of the baby that is inside of them. Nancy E. Meyers, a media relations director of the National Right to Life Committee, argues that abortion should be illegal. She goes on to say that 1.5 million abortions are done annually in the U.S., and she believes this number is much too high.
On the other hand, males used condom to prevent the sperm of entering into the fallopian tubes of a woman . Sex-education courses in middle school and high school could be another alternative factor to prevent unwanted pregnancy within the majority group of young teens. The sex-education program course are taught with widely objective information and formal activities to inform students of the terrible consequences of unprotected sex. Throughout history, women have had abortions, whether legal or not even if it meant risking their lives with unsafe methods. Camille Peri states, “ You look at the ultrasounds and there’s a fetus with a heartbeat and then after the procedure, there’s the fetus, usually in pieces, in a dish” (Peri 2).
After they learned that the person who was performing the abortion were not license physician they had the urge to learned themselves so they can help out other women’s who don’t want to have their child. Jane’s members said that the amount of abortions they did were around eleven thousands. Women’s went to the Jane’s abortion service because it was safe and affordable to the women’s’. The ways the women keep count of the abortion they did were on index cards and they destroyed them once they were caught so there were no evidence left behind. Jane’s contributed a lot to the women help.
Christian Healthcare Ethics April 17, 2013 Ethical Issue Paper “A total 32.4% of these victims did not discover they were pregnant until they had already entered the second trimester; 32.2% opted to keep the infant whereas 50% underwent abortion and 5.9% placed the infant for adoption; an additional 11.8% had spontaneous abortion.” (National Center for Biotechnology Information, 2009) Many people believe that rape victims who become pregnant from this act have a good reason for them to have an abortion. In some medical situations, we have to ask ourselves if the procedures that are being performed on a patient are ethical or not. Should a 22 year-old rape victim have an abortion? To answer this question, we can apply the “four-box” method
Should parents be held responsible for failing to get their children vaccinated? How will mandatory measles vaccination curb the spread of the disease? In my decision to become a nurse, one of my greatest fear was getting sick with some incurable or fatal disease my patients had. I decided to become a nurse thinking that by a certain in the future these avoidable disease would be easily eradicate. This have proven to be untrue because although the vaccines are available, they are not mandatory and some parents do not believe in vaccinations for various reasons.
This also is a nebulous concept, since the health of the mother could be affected by depression over being pregnant due to irresponsible behavior. According to statistics, about 98% of the abortions performed in the United States are elective, meaning that the health of the mother was not a factor in the decision to have the procedure (Johnston, 2008). Most health issues that affect expectant mothers are treatable without endangering the life of the mother or the fetus. A notable exception to this is the ectopic pregnancy, where the fetus attaches itself to the ovary or fallopian tube. In this instance, the carrying of the fetus to term could kill both the fetus and the
Abortion is Wrong Of all unintended pregnancies, 4 in 10 are aborted. In fact, there are approximately 1.21 million abortions in America each year. In On the Moral and Legal Status of Abortion, Mary Anne Warren discusses a few arguments against abortion, namely bringing into play whether the fetus is actually a person, or “not a member of the moral community”. She defends that abortion is a morally sound action. Don Marquis, in his article An Argument that Abortion is Wrong, takes the opposite stance.
Abortion is not only the killing of a fetus, but can also provide health risks for the mother and should be illegal. In addition Doctors are supposed to be saving lives, not killing unborn babies. Abortion also goes against what the Bible teaches. By 1965 abortion was illegal in the United States. Some states did include provisions allowing for abortion in limited circumstances; generally with the purpose of protecting the woman's life or pregnancies related to rape or incest.
When a woman has an abortion, there can be physical, mental, emotional and spiritual damages. Ectopic pregnancies are more common after having an abortion. Ectopic pregnancy is when an egg is fertilized in the fallopian tube, and cannot reach the uterus. This can be caused from scar tissue, from scraping inside during an abortion. Children may also be more likely to be born with handicaps because of problems or change in the mothers reproductive organs as a result of previously having an abortion.
