The choice on whether or not a girl should be able to get birth control or not should be up to her. Having or not having a contraceptive will not stop a teen that may want to have sex. Teenage girls are entitled to their bodies. Preventing a girl from receiving birth control could potentially worsen the situation. A
Even a pro-choice individual’s views quickly change toward abortion and exactly how legally available it should be when the same woman gets pregnant and aborts her child more than once. These types of advances all seem to be a good idea but they all have complications and loopholes which those of our modern society will take advantage of. If only the world could be perfect, then women would not have to rely on others to help them accomplish something that should come naturally. If only all surrogate mothers were respectful, and follow through with an agreement, then there could be accommodating alternatives for those less
In fact if we force this woman to have the surgery it could compromise the sanctity of a woman’s body. This would bring up the whole debate of abortion. Having the fetus’s rights just as important if not more than the mother’s, could say that if you have an abortion or miscarriage that you could be charged with a criminal offence. In the interest of fairness and justice, she should not be forced to have the
Abortion- A Woman’s Divine Right Tameka A. Severson SOC 120 Introduction to Ethics & Social Responsibility Instructor: Theodore Framan April 16, 2012 The topic of abortion is one of the most controversial of our times. The fight between pro-life and pro-choice supporters has been long and brutal. This is because individuals can be a bit “close minded” and refuse to view any other beliefs or ideas other than their own. Although I support the act of abortion, when it all boils down, it is a right and the circumstance at hand really depends on the particular individual. Abortion is defined as the termination of pregnancy by the removal or expulsion from the uterus of a fetus or embryo prior to viability.
The classes will teach teenagers about having safe sex and the consequences that arise when one does not take all precautions necessary. Abstinence is also a very preventable way of not getting pregnant as well. The classes will give teenagers the right knowledge that they need to make healthy decisions regarding them, their sex life, and their bodies. This could possibly reduce the amount of abortions needed in the future. Teenagers should take responsibility for their actions; your parents are not always going to be there to help you.
Melissa Capristo Mr. Baumgartner English 10 Honors 2 December 2012 Pro-Choice How would you feel if someone controlled what you did to your own body? I feel that by not making abortion legal you are controlling someone’s rights to their own body. Many women that want to have an abortion have emotional and personal reasons behind it. Some women choose to have their babies even though they didn’t want to but I believe that those kids have a high chance of growing up feeling unloved by their mother. I believe that every single person that is born into this world should have the rights to their own body.
Who really experience these unplanned pregnancies? The answer is women between the ages of 20 and 24 if you go by age or unmarried women if you go by marital status. If abortion is outlawed that could also mean there will be more teenagers having children. I agree that abortion should not be a form of birth control, but if something does happen there should be the option of abortion so that the wrong mother doesn’t have to raise a child at such a young
Short Paper on A Defense of Abortion by J. J. Thomson In the article A Defense of Abortion, Judith Jarvis Thomson exposes the idea that fetuses are considered persons from the moment of conception and, therefore, they have the right to life. However, Thomson argues that abortion under certain circumstances can be morally permissible. Based on these ideas Thompson implemented thought experiments such as the analogies of the violinist and the “drifting seeds”, which doesn’t really give an adequate explanation for why abortion is sometimes permissible. Thus, based on my understanding of these analogies I believe that Thomson’s arguments are not convincing and, therefore, abortion should not be permissible. Thomson explains that the fetus is a person who has the right to life.
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.
At the current rates nearly one-third of American women will have an abortion. The same study states that on average, women give at least 3 reasons for choosing abortion. 3/4 of women’s first reason is because having the baby would interfere with work, school, or other responsibilities. 3/4 of women’s second reason is because they cannot afford a child. 1/2 of women’s third reason is because they are having marital issues.
