Hot-Button Issue: Abortion Jim Buie wrote an article published in the Newsweek Web Exclusive on June 17, 2009. In it he referenced the hot-button issue of abortion. His personal story is very touching and holds a lot of emotion. If one cannot connect and sympathize for him after they have heard it all then they must be very set in their ways about abortion. Buie says, “abortion was not an option for my parents when Jon was born back in 1949.” He understands that raising a child with Down syndrome was very difficult.
Article Rebuttal Allen Parker XBCOM/275 10/12/2014 Tiffany Bostic Article Rebuttal In this article about “10 Reason why abortion is evil & not a Pro-choice. The authors show great deal of bias to support their cause. The facts I feel did not look at why people choose to have abortion but that it is a sin and is against God. Women today choices these options as a last resort not something that is done without great deal of thought. They do not look at the reason why some women had suffer from rape, abuse or in some case it is the suggestion of doctors because of complication from birth defect.
ABORTION KILLS POOR LITTLE HELPLESS BEINGS A abortion is when a women wants to terminate her pregnancy. There could be many reasons why they may not want the baby. She could not have enough money, or she could be young and may not want to be a teen mother. There are about 44 million abortions performed in the United States. The ages of the women are from 16 to 40 years old.
Although scientist have developed ways for a fetus to live outside the womb, many feel that until birth the fetus is not developed enough to be considered a person. How can that be true when the first twenty eight days after conception an embryo has a heartbeat. Opposers fell that if we can reduce unwanted pregnancies we could reduce the number of abortions that are given to women each year. There must be a better alternative to abortion. Most young adults do not fully understand the bible and its scriptures concerning taking a life.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, questioned Dr. Gosnell “the difference between killing a 23 month old infant as opposed to aborting a baby moments before birth”, in which he refused to answer. After reading her strong statement to Dr. Gosnell, I think many people can agree that abortion is not only wrong morally but is a sign of murder.

Due to the lack of parental guidance and education at school, children are more prone to engaging in unprotected sex, which is one of the leading causes to abortion (Her Choice, 2009). If you are under 18, your state may require one or both of your parents to give permission for your abortion or be told of your decision prior to the abortion. However, in most states you can ask a judge to excuse you from these requirements (Planned Parenthood, 2012).

These practices were the ones that the women performed to self-induce their pregnancy and many women died because of it. Women do this because abortion may be illegal wherever they live, or even if it is legal they do not want to risk the chance of ruining their social lives and being looked at differently by people with strong beliefs about abortion being illegal.

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?

Pro-abortionists began attacking crisis pregnancy centers in 1999 (Williams, par.32). While many women still chose to continue to go through with abortions, very few are warned about the potentially devastating long- term effects.
