1063 Words Jul 13th, 2008 5 Pages
In my argumentative Essay, I am arguing that abortion is wrong and
not to be mistaken with 'Abortion should be made illegal.' I will
explain later why I have made this statement.

Abortion is the termination of an unborn child in its mother's womb
for up to twenty four weeks of the pregnancy or in special
circumstances e.g. Disability diagnosis a termination right up until
the mother goes in to labour. I think the above definition is an
easier and less harsh way of saying that abortion is the murdering of
a human being.

There are several reasons why abortion is legal and several reasons
why it shouldn?t be. I believe there are five3 main ways of preventing
abortion and this is why it is wrong and should be illegal.

The third way of preventing abortion is to increase the involvement of
men in the relationship. I think that the father has a very big
responsibility because as people say ?It takes two to tango?. If a
father was introduced in to the picture there is a high chance that
both parents will work together and raise the baby.

My fourth way of preventing abortion is to introduce new birth control
methods but with out the government funding which would cause a raise
in tax and the public would not pay because some people would think
that abortion is not a good enough reason to raise taxes.

My fifth and final point on how to prevent abortion is to make society
friendly and easier on children/teenagers. Research shows that America
has the highest rate of teenage pregnancies partly because of the
environment they grow up in. If there was pressure taken off children
the numbers of teen pregnancies would drop along with the number of
abortions.

I now want to talk about the reasons for abortion. The main reasons
for abortion are rape, teenage pregnancy, prostitution and disability
diagnosis

Apart from rape I believe these are all very bad excuses to make
abortion legal. Although pregnancy from rape doesn?t happen very
often, it does happen. Rape is a terrible ordeal for a woman to go
through and if abortion has to be legal this is the only reason for
it. If a woman does get pregnant from a case like rape and a child is
born…
