Abortion: The controversial issue
Imagine your own world, forming within your mother’s womb. Your mind developing slowly and gradually, senses being discovered and enhanced, visions and fantasies of the life before you. Babies don’t have a choice in their mother’s womb. If a woman decides to abort her child, they have no their approach in preventing their life from being eliminated. Their whole future is decimated. I believe abortion is a corrupt, and unethical occurrence, harmful to the mother as well as the child within. One reason why abortion is wrong is because there are many other safer solutions.
In the article, Why Do More People Choose Abortion Over Adoption, Kristi Burton Brown stated: “In the USA, there are approximately two million infertile couples waiting to adopt, many times regardless of the child’s medical problems such as Down Syndrome, Spinal Bifida, HIV infection or terminally ill. Dr. Brad Imler, President of America’s Pregnancy Helpline, confirms the challenge of waiting couples by stating: Only 1% of the Helpline’s annual 40,000 clients inquires about adoption.” Putting him/her up for adoption will give them a better chance at a happier life rather than abortion. The solution for a baby should not be death.
If it was for a selfish solution, you’re sacrificing a life many other families would love to raise as their own. Another reason why I don’t support abortion is because it can harm the mother as well. You are highly risking the mother’s life and affecting her. Not only does it have an effect on the USA, but it affects other countries as well. Many women are regretting that choice around the world making it a controversial issue. Abortion can also result in not being able to get pregnant in the future, many sickness’ and even death.
Abortion affects both victims in dangerous and physical ways. People who are pro-choice believe that they are justified in their decision. They believe it’s a women’s body, her choice. She should be able to decide whether or not if she doesn’t want the fetus. I understand this but is it someone’s choice to kill a human? Once you are pregnant, there is already life. The opposing side believes that in the first few weeks of pregnancy, there is no human life, which is incorrect.
The baby begins life in the first week. Another reason people support abortion rights is for certain “occasions”. Examples of this are rape, teen pregnancy, or a sickness the mother may have. I agree with the reasons why they’d find it acceptable to abort the baby in some ways. The pro-choice believe this due to the fact of not harming the baby from your sickness but another option is adoption! You’ll still be able to let the baby live.
For teen pregnancies, there are some religious beliefs as to where you shouldn’t have premarital sex. If you don’t want a child, you shouldn’t have sex at a young age because it’s not always safe. Also, abortions can result into a risk of getting ill, physical damage, stopping you from having a child again or even death.
Not only will the baby die, but the mother will as well. One last reason for the side that agrees with abortion is that they believe outlawing it, would be discrimination. Women with a lower income can lead them to into participating in an illegal abortion or a ‘black-market’ abortion. Getting an abortion illegally can cause much more harm to the mother and baby than giving birth. I believe that it is not worth risking the lives of you and your child for a surgery. I believe abortion is wrong when used for narcissistic reasons.
There are many other things you can do to prevent abortion. There are reasons why I don’t support it. You can use adoption as a solution, it can harm the mother as well, and you are a taking an innocent life. Teenagers can rise awareness and either speak or show how strongly they believe about this topic. Abortion should
