Since abortion has been legalized in 1973, there have been over 53 million abortions in the world, which is way beyond the capacity that it should be. The leading reason for abortion is the young age of the women getting the abortion. Young adults and even young teenagers will have abortions either because they are too ashamed of being pregnant or they are too young and feel that they cannot take care of the baby. “Globally, abortion accounts for 13 percent of women’s deaths during pregnancy
Doe 1 John Doe Mrs. Lewis English 112 3 March 2012 Annotated Bibliography Abortion is a very controversial topic which affect a lot of people today. An abortion is where you terminate a pregnancy at an early stage. When the dead fetus goes out of the body it is about the size of a quarter sometimes recognizable as an incredibly small baby. You can receive an abortion at any age today. People choose to get an abortion for a couple of different reasons which I will discuss later.
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
Having an abortion can have effects on future pregnancies, such as having a miscarriage, low birth weight in the baby, and having a premature baby (AfterAbortion.org). Most women will carry the regret for the rest of their lives resulting in depression, anxiety, and problems bonding with future children. Some women think having a baby will ruin
“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. Raymond and D.A. Grimes, 2012) The fact that abortion is safe plays a large role in why so many people now believe that it should be legal and why it has become legal in so many places over the last 50 years. A recent study shows that women who are denied abortion are often are more likely to be become unemployed, to receive welfare, be below the poverty line and become victims of domestic violence. The study focused on women who were turned away from abortion because their baby was too far along and from the results they discovered that “76% of the "turnaways" ended up on unemployment benefits, compared with 44% of the women who had abortions.” These statistics oppose the question of if this is the best situation for the mother and the child.
Over 42 million babies have been legally aborted since 1972. In 1972, the case of Roe versus Wade was brought to the Supreme Court and it is one of the most controversial issues involving women's civil right; the case dealt with the right to choose to have an abortion. Most feminist groups supported this case since women felt it was their body and their choice whether to have a baby or not. Excluding rape or incest, abortion should not be allowed because it is an issue of human life being endangered and not the restriction of women’s lives with some rights that may be denied through childbearing. Since I am a pro-life supporter, I am strongly against abortion because abortion in most cases is the deliberate killing of the defenseless among us; this act should be stopped.
A mother who smokes two packs a day could take over a pound and a half off the baby’s weight at birth. The baby could also have problems such as underdeveloped lungs and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Women who smoke while pregnant can cause a number of health issues for their baby. Not only will smoking harm the baby, but it also harms the person who is smoking in the first place. There are over 4,000 harmful chemicals in cigarettes.
I am strongly against abortion because it is murdering an innocent Child. Many people have the taught that abortion is a short, simple and clean process. Most women who have an abortion are sadder and depressed then women who don’t. According to the article an argument against abortion during the second trimester, there is ten times the chances of a miscarriage, three times the chance of a premature
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.
In many people minds, fetus is a human being who has the right to survive. Obviously, killing someone is immoral, but fetus is no completely as same as a normal human being. In “A Defense of Abortion”, Thomason used a few examples to show that fetuses must rely on their mom for about ten month to become normal being. Thomson said that fetuses are persons that have the rights to live, but most abortions are permissible. (a) Thomson used some cases as the violinist, the open windows to establish thought experiments to argue that abortion is permissible in most cases.
