What about in the case of rape, incest, or threat to the woman’s life? This is a tough topic to cover because even some die-hard, pro-life activists believe that in this situation abortion is acceptable. If, in their eyes, a fetus is a human being from the point of conception, then shouldn’t it have rights as well? Shouldn’t those fetus rights be protected in severe emotional and damaging cases like these? Supporting exceptions to the rule is the same as acknowledging that a woman right is more important than the fetus’s; thereby admitting that the right to have an abortion needs to be the woman’s
The option to have a child that a loving family would want versus having a child the family can’t afford and doesn’t want. The pro-choice supporters believe that it should be the women’s choice. They believe that human personhood cannot be proved and that the government should not impeded on the rights of a women to decide whether to keep or abort the pregnancy (http://civilliberty.about.com/od/abortion/tp/Pro-Life-vs-Pro-Choice.htm). Pro-choice supporters are also trying to put an emphasis on reducing unplanned pregnancies. They are planning to increase funding for family planning services, contraceptive research, and making it a requirement for health insurance companies to pay for the contraceptives (Rovner).
I believe that when you are raped and you feel that you cannot carry that child to term due to the resentment of that child you should have an abortion. Also, if there the mother and the child’s life is at risk and that the unborn child has no chance of surviving and living a normal life than I believe abortion at that point is the only option. Other than those extreme cases I do not believe that abortion should be performed. I believe that if someone is responsible enough to have sex than they should be responsible enough to accept the consequences of what can
When the time came for them to actually want to give birth, if they had gone through an abortion in the past, it could have damaged their reproductive organs. Many women run the risk of dieing while giving birth because of previous abortions. There is no reason why any woman or couple should have to experience this. Although our court systems have tried to the best of their ability to deal with this issue of life and death, in the end, we all have come to the conclusion that the final decision of life or death of an unborn child rests in the mother’s hands. Despite the fact that we as humans claim to be followers of God, we continue to allow this to happen.
I do not condone the actions of some pro-life activists in killing the doctors that perform these operations, but I agree that this should not be happening. If a woman carried a baby for nine months I can’t comprehend why that baby needs to be killed when it is born. It could just as easily be put up for adoption and the mother would be getting the same amount of responsibility. To me there is not much of a difference in killed a newborn baby than killing any other person. I believe it is right that infanticide is illegal because as soon as the baby is born it is a living, breathing human being.
In some cases that may be true but in others it can be because of some kind of misfortune that she had leading her to get an abortion. Having an abortion does not make a person a killer or make them evil. Making that decision should not make it so that they go straight to hell for choosing that path. I believe that if anything happened and I was not able to care for my child properly, if I became pregnant, I can have an abortion and still be good in God’s eyes and in the eyes of the people around me. Some rules are just meant to be
First , say there is a girl who gets raped and she ends up getting pregnant. She has her whole life ahead of her. She should be able to pick whether or not she wants to keep or abort the child. Abortion is a woman's choice. Many woman feel if they didn’t [Contractions should not be used in academic writing.
If a women gets pregnant and doesn't want it then I think she should consider giving it up for adoption. Consider giving it to a women that can't have children, someone that will appericate a little human being. Instead of killing off that little innocent baby for the stupid mistakes that they made, but I'm no one to
Lydia Cherry Ms. Buckles Humanities 244 23 November 2009 Worldview Analysis- Abortion Identification of Problem or Issue The issue of abortion is one that has been very controversial since the idea came about at the beginning of the Twentieth Century. Webster defines “abortion” as “the act of giving premature birth; partially the expulsion of the human fetus prematurely, or before it is capable of sustaining life; miscarriage” (Webster). There are several different types of abortion but the form I will be discussing is induced abortion. Induced abortion occurs when the mother plans to “interrupt the pregnancy” (Macnaughton). This is by her free will.
Contrast to Pro-life perspective - Pro-choice believe that reproductive health care decisions should be made by a woman, they oppose any legislation, judicial decisions that unnecessarily impedes a woman’s access to an abortion. They expect access to affordable abortions, reliable contraceptives, youth sex-education programs, and state / government funding of abortions for low-income women. These lists of demands seem necessary considering the majority dynamic of American population living in or near poverty. If you deny women the right to choose an abortion it impinges upon their civil liberty and the society at large in many of
