To their understanding an abortion is a killing of an innocent human being and this individual has a fundamental right to life, which needs to be protected (Abortion ProCon.org.). Pro-Life supporters believe that fetuses can feel pain during the abortion procedure, which is inhuman. They also believe that with abortion being legal women would use it as a form of contraception. These supporters believe that the legalization of abortion sends a message that human life has little value (Abortion ProCon.org.). These were just some reasons that Pro-Life supporters fight for abortion to be
Abortion- A Woman’s Divine Right Tameka A. Severson SOC 120 Introduction to Ethics & Social Responsibility Instructor: Theodore Framan April 16, 2012 The topic of abortion is one of the most controversial of our times. The fight between pro-life and pro-choice supporters has been long and brutal. This is because individuals can be a bit “close minded” and refuse to view any other beliefs or ideas other than their own. Although I support the act of abortion, when it all boils down, it is a right and the circumstance at hand really depends on the particular individual. Abortion is defined as the termination of pregnancy by the removal or expulsion from the uterus of a fetus or embryo prior to viability.
Abortion is a very tricky thing to bring up and discuss. This is because so many people, whether they are for or against, have such a strong opinion about it. There are three main ways women become pregnant, and those are: on purpose, on accident, and most importantly by rape. Obviously a women that wanted to get pregnant wont abort their child, so this leaves the on accident and rape group. Many will argue firstly that it is against religion and faith to kill a child, to destroy a soul, especially one as pure as an unborn baby.
Constitutionality of Pre-Abortion Procedures Few words can carry out the shivers and shakes that the word “abortion” can. It means to stop, to terminate. With this word comes judgment regardless of the situation. In the conservative political realm, it translates to murder. Abortions are performed for many reasons, varying from rape and incest to teenage and fatalistic pregnancies.
Medical complications include: heavy bleeding, infection, incomplete abortion, sepsis, anesthesia, damage to the cervix, scarring of the uterine lining, uterine perforation, damage to internal organs, pelvic inflammatory disease, endometritis, and death. Emotional complications include: eating disorders, relationship problems, guilt, depression, flashbacks of abortion, suicidal thoughts, sexual dysfunction, alcohol and drug abuse. You also have a higher risk for: breast cancer, cervical, ovarian, or liver cancer, placenta previa, and ectopic pregnancy. So as you can see, abortion may sound easier and also a quicker way of doing things, but adoption has less risks and health issues than abortion. Adoption may sound hard and may be alot harder than abortion but at least with choosing adoption you can save a child's life and give them a life they deserve and also save yours as well by not having complications and risks added to your
Abortion is unnecessary and the statistics prove it. Forty-two million abortions take place around the world annually. This breaks down to approximately 115, 000 per day. Out of those 115,000; only seven percent are a result of rape, incest, or potential health risks. The other ninety-three percent of abortions take place because the child is either unwanted or inconvenient.
Having an abortion is killing an innocent person for insignificant reasons. If other people get killed or put into jail for killing other people then why, shouldn’t women who choose to abort their pregnancies? It is the same thing. Whether or not the baby is wanted, all people who kill any human being in any way need to be punished. If the mother and or father wasn’t allowed or didn’t want a child in the first place then as a couple they should have decided to be abstinent until they were ready to take on the responsibilities of having and taking care of a
One of the most ethical controversial issues being debated now in United States is whether late- term abortion should be banned or not. Most people argued that it is proper to ban late-term abortion. They believe that it is un-ethical and a murder of an unborn child not a right of freedom of choice. It is an immoral act and violates the social and religious norms. On the other hand some people argued that late-term abortion should not be banned because it is necessary to terminate a fetus when the life of the woman is in danger as a result of complicated pregnancy; or when pregnancy result from incest or rape and the woman may be late in finding out that she is pregnant.
The ones that don’t feel like they would be able to look at the result of their rape. By making abortion illegal these women wouldn’t have a choice. They would be reminded of their rape their whole life. I don’t believe that it is fair to have someone go through all that
This individual has a fundamental right to life, which must be protected (“Pro & Con Arguments: “Should Abortion Be Legal?”” par. 2). To many the thought of killing an innocent unborn child as a form of contraceptive is wrong and inhumane. Since 1969, the CDC requests information from health agencies to do surveillance on the number and characteristics of women who legally abort a child (Pazol; pg. 1).
