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
But whatever the situation, there is never an acceptable reason to get an abortion. Here are some reasons why abortion should be illegal: Adoption is another option, many women are endangered by it, birth control is another option, it can also cause misscarriages if you have 2 or more. The first reason why abortion should be illegal is because adoption is another option. Adoption is always brought up when people talk about aborting an unwanted child. There are tons of people who get rejected when they apply to adopt a child.
Forcing a woman to carry the child of a rapist simply because one believes that abortion is wrong would be infringing in on the rights of the mother. It could be considered wrong when individuals have careless sex and utilize abortions as birth control, especially when there are hundreds of birth control choices out there already (Pushaw, 2008). There is another way that this could be viewed; there are women that just don't think they can handle being a single mom. The reality here is that there is a choice to be made before a person finds them in this type of situation. The vast majority of Americans, including those who favor a right to choose during the early stages of pregnancy, support laws that prohibit partial-birth
It cannot be held responsible for the deeds of another and should not be punished for those implied deeds. In the prolife view, women who choose, in the face of problematic circumstances, to keep an unwanted pregnancy when abortion is a choice, are "truly" female. (Rose) If a woman is to terminate an unborn fetus’ life society will never know what it could’ve become. He or she could have discovered the cure for cancer or aids, but it would never known, because they never existed. Many Prolifers also believe that abortion goes against the declaration of independence.
Pro-life is the opposing argument to pro-choice, and that abortions should be made illegal like in Northern Ireland unless the mother’s life is at serious risk. Many Religions have the traditional view that abortion is a sin. It is argued that if a teenager becomes pregnant and has an abortion they may come to regret this in later life, because at the time they were only a minor. The argument for Pro-life is a choice by people who feel that it is wrong to take a man life, weather that human has been born or not is irrelevant. Abortion is seen as no different to murder.
This characteristic of non-commitment that is symbolic of so many aspects of modern day life has led certain individuals to reject a fetus under the credence that it in itself is not a person, and therefore is not entitled to the rights any other individual can receive. On the other side victims of rape, incest, and molestation rightfully assert that to carry the fetus to term would prove impossible. Certain women due to medical conditions or threats to health state that delivering the baby would be equivalent to forfeiting their own lives. There are yet other factions who practice sex selective abortions and abort children based on their gender; this is commonly practices in countries such as India & China and where in the value of a male child that of a female child exceeds. This is not only a repulsive form of discrimination but it skews the gender ratios that present enormous problems for future generations.
Now on the other side, the strongest argument is since life begins at conception, abortion is akin to murder as it is the act of taking human life. Abortion is a direct defiance of the commonly accepted idea of the sanctity of human life. This is a very strong argument because to take another human’s life is not right. It is a sin. The second strongest argument is that adoption is not an alternative to abortion.
One of the main differences between adoption and abortion is that abortion ends a life in order to end a pregnancy whereas adoption requires the giving up of the young or new born baby. Adoption also gives the mother the memory of giving birth even if she isn’t and never may be, in the position to give birth again. This can prove a life changing and eye opening experience to young women which could really change their maturity on the topic or later life or even just the prospect of birth. There are countless other differences that separate the mother when addressing adoption and abortion, the contact with the child, the finality of the decision, all of which are things which could lend themselves equally dependant on the mother’s current position in life and the mother’s mentality on having children. There are, however, benefits to the child in this topic.
But still there are people who argue that it shouldn’t been done, it is a moral crime to kill their own unborn baby. This issue has also been view as a capital punishment, what is the right they have to judge on the life, life that providence has created and some of them also using religion for their support in order to stop abortion. Abortion should be legalize in Thailand because it not only for women right to choose for themselves but also for their safety from illegal or
Like stated before, there are certain cases in which I agree abortion should be considered. The statistics need to change. The percentage of abortions due to not wanting to own up for your mistakes should not outweigh ones that are due to rape and a woman’s health. As a country we need to take a stand and take abortion away. References Adoptions, A.
