The book for itself told me that it was going to be about abortion and indeed there were going to a lot of trouble. But overall the book was good and informed me a lot about the illegal abortions women’s were having back then. Honestly, the women’s who were getting the abortion were tired of having babies and we not capable of caring for another child. Kaplan’s thesis was that women had the right to know about abortion
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
Here we are in this so-called world of freedom but when we exercise that freedom, we become ridiculed for making a choice. I would rather end a pregnancy instead of bringing a child into a world that they are forced to struggle and go without ; to make a child suffer is a far worse act then dissolving the birth of an unborn/ undeveloped fetus. In Roe v. Wade, a landmark Supreme Court decision in 1973, stated that a woman and her doctor may freely decide to abort a pregnancy during the first trimester, state governments can restrict abortion access after the first trimester with laws intended to protect the woman's health, and abortion after fetal viability must be available if the woman's health or life are at risk. Abortion was allowed in the United States of America
Abortions should not be used as a form of birth control. A solution to these can consist of counseling of pregnant woman and help her into the adoption process. There are many woman in the world that have loving hearts and can not have children of their own. Overall, I believe that having an abortion should be a woman’s right and should be legal but with some restrictions. In conclusion, abortion has become a safe medical procedure to terminate a pregnancy.
Most people agree with keeping abortions leagalized during the first trimester because of the health of the mother or the health of the unborn child (Saad 1). There are many personal reasons women choose to have abortions as well, like in cases of rape. Hillary Clinton cites in her speech on the "politics and moralitly of abortion" that there are 15,000 abortions per year due to women that have been sexually assaulted (Sullivan 2). If a women is raped she should not have to go through the mental stress of having that
Abortion Abortion is one of the biggest controversial issues in the U.S. ever since the roe vs. wade decision in 1973. This legalized that a woman could chose to abort her baby in the earlier months of pregnancy without restriction until the baby had reached a certain stage of growth. It passed because mothers were experiencing painful side effects or having bad health from being pregnant. Women were having abortions at first because they thought abortion was the only way out. Those women who are considering abortion because of personal issues should choose adoption instead.
In this landmark case, the Court ruled that a pregnancy may be aborted during the first trimester, because the embryo is not yet viable. During the second trimester, the state may decide to protect the woman’s health by regulating the manner in which the abortion occurs. However, the Court ruled that during the third trimester, the developing child is capable of surviving on its own and, therefore; the state then has the power to deny the woman an abortion. After this ruling many pro-choice individuals argued that it was an inappropriate intrusion of the government into the people’s affairs; but as a result many young lives were saved. Abortion is unnecessary and the statistics prove it.
Pope John Paul II described abortion as a sign of “encroaching culture of death that threatens human dignity and freedom” (Zastrwon & Kirst-Ashman, 2013). Abortion is worse than ordinary murder, principally, because it involves the betrayal of a dependent by a natural guardian (Stith, 2009). An example of religion being a bias in society involves a Catholic University. Marquette University has formally decided to decline an abortion rights group on campus, though they do sanction an anti-abortion group. Catholics for a Free Choice contended that they should be allowed to add another voice, but the school has chosen to stick to religious and moral beliefs and deny the group opportunity.
In addition to that there are studies that prove that breast cancer is heightened in women who had an abortion earlier in life. The harmful effects it can have on the body contradict the autonomy that one may have with their body. Abortions are discontinuous with human anatomy and hurts the bodies women were blessed with. Abortion should not become the standard in eliminating unwanted pregnancies. Women who chose to have control over their bodies should then exercise proper contraceptive practices or also partake in abstinence.
The unborn child deserves the rights that are given to all living humans. The problem with today’s laws on abortion is that they make it too easy for a woman to get an abortion. The law is crazy to me because if you look at some murder cases, the unborn child is considered a person. If someone murders a pregnant woman, they will most likely be charged with two murders as we have seen in the Manson family murders. It shouldn’t matter how far along the pregnancy is for someone to tell if the baby is a “human”.
