Therefore, abortion would not be a defiance against God. Another main point of the argument is over the woman's personal rights, versus the rights of the unborn child. Pro-choice activists maintain that regardless of the individual circumstances, women should have the right to chose whether or not to abort. The pregnancy and labor will affect only the woman's body, therefore it should be the woman's decision. Pro-life supporters, on the other hand, believe that the unborn child has the right to life, and that abortion unlawfully takes away that right.
If abortion were illegal, the government would be in a sense controlling a woman’s body, and personal freedom for her would be lost. The government cannot make laws telling a woman what she can and cant do with her body (Haney 45). It should be up to the woman to have a child, not an alternative forced on her by the government. When abortion was illegal, back alley abortions became the leading death for young woman in
A Woman’s Prerogative Since the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision limited the restrictions on abortion, it has become one of our nation’s most controversial issues due to people’s personal views. Outlawing abortion would have the effect of imposing one person’s moral values on another. If the courts were to make the decision for women, it would take away a sense of their autonomy by not allowing them to make a decision that better suits their unique circumstances. Women should take abortion seriously because there are many health risks involved, not to mention the lifelong effects that accompany it. Now that women have the right to choose to have an abortion, the government should take the responsibility to offer information and medical consultation
Abortion Should abortion be made legal in all states in the United States? I do not believe that abortion should be made legal in any state. If someone gets pregnant, she should take responsibility for that pregnancy. I realize that there are some circumstances that might warrant thoughts of abortion, such as in the case of rape. Even then, there is someone who would take the baby and raise it as their own.
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).
The answer to these questions is no. Not only is it unconstitutional, but it’s unrealistic to believe that we can control the lives of others simply because their beliefs differ from ours. Abortion is a personal issue and should be dealt with by the individual, not the courts. Abortion is a benefit to women because it provides them with the choice to not bring an unplanned child into humanity. A woman may want to get an abortion for many reasons.
Legalization is the only way to keep these women's bodies safe. A woman's body is hers, I have no right to interfere with that. I want everyone to have the best possible medical care in life. Women are subjected to birth control that can fail and even forced insemination. When I see a woman struggling with her family, who doesnt want another baby, knowing that
Despite the fact that both she and the fetus has the equal right to life, opponents of abortion would still consider it wrong to preform an abortion with reasons ranging from killing an innocent person is always wrong and is murder to one must always prefer letting a person die to killing a person. J.J. Thomson would respond to say that these reasons are all false if we consider that the mother is only preforming an abortion in order to save her own life and not for personal interests. Hence abortion should be considered morally permissible in such situations when the life of the mother is threatened by the fetus. In order to determine whether abortion is permissible in cases where the mother’s life is not in immediate danger, we should analyse whether the fetus truly has the right to live. Take for example, rape.
Considering this, many would point out that aborting a child is within women’s rights and should be accepted. If a baby is not really a 'baby', just another cell forming in its mother's body, surely it is her choice whether it should live or die. Yes women should have a choice, however I believe that the choice should not be to keep or abort, but to keep or give the baby away, there are so many wonderful families out there that are unable to have children and are wanting to adopt, but abortion has decreased there possibility of loving and raising a child. Statistics show that in 1971 there were 9,798 adoptions, however recently ever since abortions became more accessible to women the adoption rate has diminished to a mere 268 in thirty-seven
