Doreen Karamaga EN 101 Mathew Ratz The beliefs concerning life present an implicit conundrum; when does life begin and when does it end? From here emotions are fired up, and ultimately we must face the power dynamics concerning the ability to consciously choose to end a life. We are living in a society that has the means and technology to extract and terminate a fetus from the womb. People can, to put it crassly ‘get knocked up’ and simply have an abortion. This characteristic of non-commitment that is symbolic of so many aspects of modern day life has led certain individuals to reject a fetus under the credence that it in itself is not a person, and therefore is not entitled to the rights any other individual can receive.
“A 2012 study in Obstetrics & Gynecolog yfound a woman's risk of dying from having an abortion is 0.6 in 100,000, while the risk of dying from giving birth is around 14 times higher (8.8 in 100,000).” (E.G. Raymond and D.A. Grimes, 2012) The fact that abortion is safe plays a large role in why so many people now believe that it should be legal and why it has become legal in so many places over the last 50 years. A recent study shows that women who are denied abortion are often are more likely to be become unemployed, to receive welfare, be below the poverty line and become victims of domestic violence. The study focused on women who were turned away from abortion because their baby was too far along and from the results they discovered that “76% of the "turnaways" ended up on unemployment benefits, compared with 44% of the women who had abortions.” These statistics oppose the question of if this is the best situation for the mother and the child.
CM220: College Composition 2 Prof: Brenda Pittman George Johnson 2/12/2012 It is a strongly debated topic, but abortion became legal in the U.S. in the early 1970’s. In the U.S. before this time it was looked down upon. There were many restrictions but they were disannulled after the ruling went though. The courts did rule in favor of the people rights to privacy. Therefore with this being said the deaths of mothers and child sky rocketed
She might end up resenting the child and blaming the baby for everything. If someone isn’t ready to have kids, whether they’re too young or not financially stable, abortion should be available to them as an option until they’re prepared for kids or can offer they’re child a better future. Reasons against: Abortion has many benefits to it, but like many controversial topics abortion has its detractors. Many of its detractors say that through abortion you’re taking the life of an innocent child. Another reason against abortion is the long term effect it will cause a woman.
Over 42 million babies have been legally aborted since 1972. In 1972, the case of Roe versus Wade was brought to the Supreme Court and it is one of the most controversial issues involving women's civil right; the case dealt with the right to choose to have an abortion. Most feminist groups supported this case since women felt it was their body and their choice whether to have a baby or not. Excluding rape or incest, abortion should not be allowed because it is an issue of human life being endangered and not the restriction of women’s lives with some rights that may be denied through childbearing. Since I am a pro-life supporter, I am strongly against abortion because abortion in most cases is the deliberate killing of the defenseless among us; this act should be stopped.
Approximately 1.3 million unplanned pregnancies end in abortion every year. There are several reasons women choose to have abortions such as fear of having or raising a child, rape, or not having enough money. But whatever the situation, it is the individual woman’s decision. If an abortion is denied, the women would have the child in unsafe living conditions and the child would not get everything he/she needs to live a good life. First Trimester Abortions should not be viewed negatively because a woman's body is her own, circumstances are always different, and a woman has individual rights.
Many can argue that whether or not abortions effects have been beneficial to the growth and development of society and the economy, but nonetheless concerning our individual needs abortion has benefited many. In many areas around the world rape is a major issue, even though the majority of the population exploits its use as a form of contraception, although one must not ban something in which they do not have all the facts about. Foremost, rape has been a universal issue and has ruined millions of lives. Many occur in third world countries but in the US rape happens every 2 minutes, which also brings up a major fact that 44% of rape victims are under the age of 18 (rainn.org). The simple fact that these young rape victims can potentially get impregnated by the aggressor, is quite disgusting on its own.
Persuasive Speech Abortion: the easiest way to fix one’s mistakes. Abortion: the practice of ending a pregnancy by intentionally causing the death of the human fetus. I do not see how that cannot be considered as murder. When another person purposefully takes a life, it is murder. There are many other options for women that are not ready to be mothers.
Women should not have the right to an abortion just because the fetus has a disease or deformation. Doctors that tell mothers about the diseases or deformations the baby has, often result in abortions. Diseases or deformations should not matter when it comes to having a child because the mother should love her child just the way they are. Mothers worry about the health costs of the baby’s disease or deformation but there are a lot of financial aid and heath care programs that can help. “Women who are able to get Medicaid in states that exclude coverage for abortion have abortion rates of about half of those women in states that give money to support abortion care" (Balch 6).
Back in the nineteenth century having sex out of wedlock was taken very seriously whereas today it is not. Yes some still follow the traditional ways and frown upon premarital sex, it but for the most part the only thing that is really pressed into the minds of our youth is the use of protection. We cannot base our current laws on what people believed in the past because Things have drastically changed. Our circumstances are not what they were back in the nineteenth century. The right’s each of us has through the United States Constitution protects each woman and their right to choose, our advancement in technology has lowered the mortality rate of women who undergo abortion, and our values have changed.
