The mother could be physically, mentally, or emotionally unwell and not capable of being pregnant or having a child without endangering her health; the pregnancy could have possibly been the result of a terrible crime, such as rape or incest; the fetus could be unhealthy and be a danger to the mother's health. I truly believe that abortion is a good thing if used right. Many people are not ready to have another human in their life and raise it improperly. In 1987 a study was done to the woman who had abortions, to find out the
Should Women Have the Right to an Abortion? Abortion is something that women who are pregnant do when they don’t want the baby anymore. Women go to an abortion clinic to remove the baby from their body. There are two groups who have opinions on abortion, they are pro-life and pro-choice. The controversy is that the people who are pro-life say that abortion should be considered murder and everyone has the right to live.
The main issue in this piece is violence against women and women’s rights referring to female infanticide and female genital mutilation also known as FGM. Female infanticide is defined as the act of killing an infant simply because it is a female or aborting the fetus because it is a female, and FGM is the circumcision of the female genital intended to inhibit a woman’s sexual feelings (WHO 2014.) Although these are two separate issues with different trajectories they still lead to a violation of human rights (Saad 2014). These two issues are important topics because they will help in understanding and addressing violence against women in developing countries. Female infanticide is most common in India where the people believe that females are much of a burden, and according to who FGM happens in about “28 countries in Africa and in a few countries in Asia and the Middle East” (WHO, 2014).
People who need go to hospital will be reduce?? Some pregnant woman who need abortion also will reduce?? Certainly, no. Because this problem is depend on many sides, example different countries culture, population problem, male female ratio, premarital sex issue, even it rest with condom use issue. Finally, you found when people violate moral codes ,they are not ethical, they are not sure their business will get worse.
It is argued that just as it would be permissible to "unplug" and thereby cause the death of the person who is using one's kidneys, so it is acceptable to abort the fetus (who similarly, it is said, has no right to use one's body against one's will) It is unambiguous that if abortion is not allowed on demand, woman will opt for ‘black street abortion’ which is dangerous as 500 women lose their life daily due to this practice. Nevertheless, the rights to do as we wish to our bodies must be curtailed by the rights of others to be free from harm as the fetus is a living thing thus abortion cannot be justified as it is barbarous murder veiled in the name of technology. Similarly, we cannot legalize abortion just on the grounds that that it will practice on the black market since it is morally wrong. Decriminalizing abortion, on this ground, would be like legalizing drugs trafficking, war or nuclear weapons throughout
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.
So why would a woman want to continue with an abortion and make the choice to destroy the developing fetus? There are many arguments for that, some more logical than others. Some of the reasons include deterioration of the woman’s health, rape, accidental pregnancy, and lack of preparedness to raise a child. Lets tackle each of these situations individually, looking at the pros and cons of each possible outcome. First, the possible deterioration of the woman’s health, if the woman’s health began to diminish during the pregnancy she may be given a choice between her life and the life of the child.
Atwood presents the female characters as being both oppressed and dehumanised through how their freedom being stripped from them. An example of this is how they are no longer allowed to smoke cigarettes due to the potential harm it can cause their pregnancy. Woman are protected in Gilead however this also means that they must submit to the state-sanctioned rape by their specific commanders. In chapter five Aunt Lydia states that “There is more than one kind of freedom… Freedom to and freedom from.” The freedom to that she is referring to is the ability to make a decision, an example of this is evident through how Offred is given a chance to escape by the doctor, however she immediately questions herself by thinking “why am I frightened?” This implies that she is so accustomed to being oppressed she is almost scared to take the chance of freedom that is being handed to her. This portrays a sense of dehumanisation in terms of female characters as freedom is regarded as a basic human right.
Moreover, abortion should not remain legal because there are other options to deal with an unwanted pregnancy; some women become dependent on this procedure as a way out; and having an abortion can be harmful to the physical and emotional health of the mother. One argument against abortion is that it ignores the other viable alternatives. Instead of having an abortion, there is the option of adoption. Every year, more than a million couples desire to adopt a baby. The most common reason is the infertility of the hopeful woman.
‘’Abortion is always wrong’’ (12 marks) Some people will agree with this statement because abortion is deliberately terminating a pregnancy by removal and destruction of the foetus, which is parallel to murdering an innocent being; as life begins in the conception therefore abortion is wrong, despite that abortion was legalised in 1997, but you must have an consent of two doctors and under 12 weeks unless severe cases, and this must be carried out in the hospital. However some people will disagree with this statement because you may have reasons such as, finical problems, being raped, unplanned birth, mother at risk, child may be disabled. On the other hand others may say that God would not put you through hardships that you wouldn’t be able to do. But there are some cases some people may be able to choose is conjoined twins where the operation is to separate them causing one of them to die. I believe that abortion is wrong because you are killing a being that would have a future like ours; additionally you are causing pains and sufferings for yourself that you have to go through for a few days.
