Approximately 1.3 million unplanned pregnancies end in abortion every year. There are several reasons women choose to have abortions such as fear of having or raising a child, rape, or not having enough money. But whatever the situation, it is the individual woman’s decision. If an abortion is denied, the women would have the child in unsafe living conditions and the child would not get everything he/she needs to live a good life. First Trimester Abortions should not be viewed negatively because a woman's body is her own, circumstances are always different, and a woman has individual rights.
It also shows that government acknowledges that abortion is a fundamental right for women and it’s their choice. It used to be that having an abortion could cause health problems for the mother. It is no longer this way. Abortion is a very simple procedure and is actually one of the most safe to undergo. “A 2012 study in Obstetrics & Gynecolog yfound a woman's risk of dying from having an abortion is 0.6 in 100,000, while the risk of dying from giving birth is around 14 times higher (8.8 in 100,000).” (E.G.
I will begin by talking about the reasons for abortion. Nearly all abortions take place in the first trimester, when a fetus cannot exist independent of the mother. As it is attached by the placenta and umbilical cord, its health is dependent on her health, and cannot be regarded as a separate entity as it cannot exist outside her womb. This is the strongest argument that I came up with. It is very important for the mother’s health to be up to part.
From a non-biblical standpoint, it is based on whether a woman finds it ethically right to terminate a pregnancy and what effect it would ultimately have on her happiness. Therefore, abortion is not philosophically incorrect. In this paper, we will discuss how natural law, utilitarianism and ethical relativism cause opposition to these theories. Abortion is defined as: “The deliberate termination of a human pregnancy." However, if only the debate over the abortion issue was as simple as the definition provided.
This is understandable through her issues on abortion. I believe abortion is a ‘taboo’ in many religions, Catholic being one of them, and therefore making this issue even more complicated. She goes on to discuss her stance on abortion and why she is prochoice. She explains that, “abortion is not a positive good, it has positive outcomes.” Her perspective implies that there are legitimate concerns abortion carries but the outcome is why she believes it should be done. The interviewer made a remark I believe illustrates the true controversy of this issue in that, “abortion remains more abstract because it is a moment of sadness, grief, and confusion.” This statement underlines the situation and its complexity.
For these women birth control devices make a better choice. Birth control can be employed in any form, mechanical, hormonal or physiological. If you do not use any contraception (unprotected sex), there are only 25% chances to become pregnant (age under 25), 20% (age 25-30) and it progressively reduces with advancing age in a cycle. Hence, if desiring pregnancy early then avoid using birth control. Hormonal contraceptives can cause abnormal bleeding, prolonged bleeding or even
She might end up resenting the child and blaming the baby for everything. If someone isn’t ready to have kids, whether they’re too young or not financially stable, abortion should be available to them as an option until they’re prepared for kids or can offer they’re child a better future. Reasons against: Abortion has many benefits to it, but like many controversial topics abortion has its detractors. Many of its detractors say that through abortion you’re taking the life of an innocent child. Another reason against abortion is the long term effect it will cause a woman.
I will be examining the different reasons for abortion using some strong arguments as well as philosophical terms to help understand philosophically whether or not abortion is legal and justified or illegal and unjustified. I will also state a weakness as to why I would agree with philosophers Jeremy Bentham and John Stewart Mill using their criteria of consequentialism. Some moral and legal aspects of abortion point to some important arguments, whether or not the developing fetus from its beginning to birth has the ability to feel pain and have consciousness would argue one has the right to live or at least have their claim to live. Is the fetus a human being? What is a human being?
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 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
