Abortion: Open And Closed Adoption

Good Essays
Abortion
No matter where you are in the world, your race or ethnicity does and should not matter. Abortion is a terrible act, and should be made illegal. It does not matter what background you come from. If you come from a rich and will respected family, or you come from a poor unknown family. Abortion should have never become a solution to a problem that you created. Killing a harmless baby that hasn’t even come into this world is not okay and should never be okay. Whoever came up with the idea that killing someone that has done nothing wrong is selfish. There are multiple reasons why abortion should be illegal. Such as, abortion is murder, it’s not the baby’s fault, there are many other alternatives that can and should be considered, getting

Some of them are open, semi open and closed adoption. Closed adoptions are very uncommon in the United States. This is when the birth parents have no contact with their child after they are put up for adoption. Many times the adoptive parents don’t even know the parents of their child. And if they do they don’t stay in contact after the adoption. Once a closed adoption is finalized there is no way to open it until the child is 18 years old. A semi open adoption is when you don’t know the adoptive parents. The contact is kept minimal to a few letters and cards on occasion. And finally an open adoption is when the child and their birth parents communicate regularly during the holidays. In some unique situations the biological parents will let the adoptive parents see the baby being born. Overall adoption is not an awful idea. If you don’t want any contact, you don’t have to have any and if you just can’t give you baby the life that they deserve you can still know them. There are many different alternative than killing a child through …show more content…
They say that “forcing unwanted changes is not ethical.” (kialo) But is killing a baby ethical? When you have another human inside of you that has its own heartbeat, it has its own organs and own body. The baby even has its own DNA strands; it does not share with the mother. If it did then they might be able to argue, but they don’t. The baby gets its DNA from the mother and father. It is not your body its theirs, and you should not be able to take someone’s life in your hands just because you think you made a mistake. You should be held responsible not your child. It’s not your child’s fault that you chose to have intercourse before you are married or before you think you are ready for kids. Around 46% of the abortions that happen today are because the mothers were not married, that’s almost half. (guttmacher) Don’t make idiotic decisions, grow up and be

    It should never be “lawful” to kill any innocent human being.” In this quote they are saying that it should never be lawful to kill an innocent human being but these people don’t know what situation the woman could be in and why she needs the abortion. Maybe she has health problems or was forced to have this baby. “It’s wrong for a mother to have the right to kill her children.” Most people think it’s not the mother’s choice to have the right to kill her own child while the child is in the womb. Which is completely wrong…

    Abortion is wrong, but no one should be judged for the actions and/or decisions they make. Every human being that breathes, walks, and thinks, can decide what to do with their body. In this paper I agree with Don Marquis’s view of abortion. Abortion is wrong because it deprives the fetus from its future. In other words, abortion is wrong because killing a future child stops it from growing and making a difference to their lives.…

    Is Abortion Morally Wrong

    Abortion is a procedure that murders innocent lives that cannot defend themselves. People that agree with abortion say that an unborn baby has no constitutional rights, and that it is okay to end a human life because the baby is not an American citizen yet. When a pregnant mother is killed it is considered a double homicide, yet when a baby is aborted it is not considered murder. Abortion is a problem in today’s society, causing a division; it is morally wrong because it is considered to be murder. Abortion is performed two different ways, both ways have temporary and long term damage to who would have been a mother.…

    So, this means that people would always believe that killing a human is wrong no matter what the situation is. Krisi Brown wrote in her article 10 Reasons Not To Have An Abortion, “From the moment of fertilization – better known as conception – a new human life is in existence. Ending this life is not ending “potential.” It is ending a life” (Brown). She believes that because there is a human life that is relevant to the world, you should not be able to kill it. If it is a double homicide to kill a mother and a child, then why isn’t it considered murder when a fetus is aborted.…

    This means that the fetus is a human, and any human killing another human-being is considered murder in their eyes. Another point that is commonly found when speaking out against abortion is: each child is a wanted child. Even if that specific woman did not want the baby inside of her, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t any other woman out there that didn’t want it either. A lot of women cannot have babies, they would love to adopt or take in the baby that another woman didn’t want. An additional point linked to the Pro-Life side is laws cannot be made on exception cases.…

    Satire On Abortion

    If people claim that a fetus is not ‘human’ yet, then how is an birds egg, which is also ‘unborn’ considered to be alive? America basically states that animals’ lives are more important than the lives of humans. Abortion is selfish, it’s not safe, it is murder, and it is not the only option. Think about all of the aborted babies, they could have blessed families that could not conceive, they could have been the ones that were going to find the cure to cancer, they could have changed peoples’ lives. But no one thinks about those things, we’ve learned to ignore the bad things about abortion and only think about the benefits.…

    Disregarding the mother’s perspective can be compared to getting an arm amputated and declaring the action is immoral from the arms point of view. Abortion differs in each case and no situation is the same, to equate a case to another is immoral and unfair to the parties involved. Marquis writes “Since we do believe that it is wrong to kill defenseless little babies, it is important that a theory of the wrongness of killing easily account for this” although he is using emotional blackmail, it does not stray me from pointing out that embryos are not babies and due to the account of miscarriages and health issues it is not determined they will have a future. Pregnancy is a dangerous time for the mother and fetus and most miscarriages happen between 7 and 12 weeks. Killing is the worst of crimes except in the cases of self-defense.…

    We as people don 't understand what that baby feels or how anyone feels due abortion. We could change that though if we make abortion illegal then no one has to go through the pain of making a hard decision and killing their baby because they can 't take care of them or don 't want to burden themselves. We have other options. If abortion was illegal it would stop protest and increase population. Abortion needs to come illegal because it would help just more than the women not having so many medical problems it could help people that want kids and can 't have them.…

    No baby should ever have to suffer from the decisions his/her mother and father made. The Supreme Court has obviously struggled with the question of personhood, (Caruana 37). “Although they could not decide when life began, the justices believed that a fetus should have some protection as a “potential life. Potential life, they reasoned, begins at viability- when the fetus could survive outside the mother’s womb. Viability, they said, would be decided by a qualified physician.…
