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.
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
Pro-life supporters, on the other hand, believe that the unborn child has the right to life, and that abortion unlawfully takes away that right. If we take away the woman’s right to chose, will we begin limiting her other rights also? Or, if we keep abortion legal, are we devaluing human life? There is no easy answer to these questions. Both sides present strong, logical arguments.
What is more important is that we are giving a woman the choice of whether or not she will have an abortion. No human being; how smart, powerful, or important they may be; has the right to change what may happen to another human’s body unless that change is made by a doctor in an extreme medical condition, where that doctor has the consent of the patient, or relative of the patient, to help that person. When a woman makes the decision to have an abortion the decision is not taken lightly. That is the concern of many pro-life supporters. They are concerned that women are becoming pregnant and simply saying, “O well, I’ll just have another abortion.” That is not the case.
The author argues that a pregnant woman still preserves right to abortion, if that creates threat to her life and health. However, such practice cannot be qualified as murder because similar decisions are made about criminals, hopeless patients, as well as lives of thousands of people
Abortion (Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life) The right for a woman to choose whether or not to abort a pregnancy is one of the controversial issues in the United States. Pro-life are the people who believe that it is the government’s rights and responsibility to care for all life regardless of all the concerns in the health of the pregnant woman or what kind of life would the child have. Pro-choice are those people who argue and believe that a woman should have the right to decide and make a choice on what she wishes to do when it comes to their own body, as long as it does not harm others with their decision. My standpoint about abortion is that I definitely feel that it is a woman’s right to decide if she is going to do abortion and as long as she has a valid reason to abort a child. The reason why it is important for a woman to make a choice is because a lack of choice could and may lead to medical and health problems for the mother and the child, and a poor environment for the child to grow with.
Adoption is an excellent choice for women who choose to carry their pregnancy full term. Women have the right to choose whether or not they want to go through with pregnancy. Relying on abortion as a form of birth control is not right but how can we tell women how to use their rights? In many cases such as rape or in women who cannot healthily carry a pregnancy abortion is a healthier alternative. In rape cases women who decide to go through the pregnancy suffer severe psychological and emotional disturbances towards themselves and the child.
Even though the pregnancy is terminated the process of abortion is still distress for the women to experience. Abortion is not something that should not be taken lightly and should never be the solution for being irresponsible and reckless. Even though women have the right to choose, they still seek medical advice to know the side effect of terminating a pregnancy. Women that have abortions are at a higher risk for reproductive tract infections which include HIV/AIDS and PID. It is a never ending battle between Pro-life activist and Pro-choice activist and they both have great points of view.
Women across the country who must go through the traumatizing horrors of abortion are often categorized as shameful. They are judged enough already and certainly don’t deserve to bear the burden of ugly legislation. Planned Parenthood is an organization who supports women’s rights and is in disagreement with the things that they must put women through because of these regulations. A recent bill in Texas called the “Women’s Right to Know Act” was passed and requires women to make at least two visits to the abortion clinic before the
Some people say abortion is the easiest way to solve the problem. But they don’t really know how the mothers are affected by abortion. The effects of abortion are on both physical and psychological health. After abortion, some women get Traumatic Stress Disorder, Dissociation and emotional paralysis, Guilt and Regret, Brooding and Antisocial Behavior, Anxiety Disorder, Sexual Dysfunction, Drug and Alcohol Abuse, Depression, Suicide. The worst case is that the woman cannot give birth or even death at all.
