Abortion Argument Essay

Improved Essays
All human beings care for their safety. This is due to their natural fear of death. Especially when people have close, caring, connections with others, their concern for others is just as strong as their concern for themselves. Families automatically have connections, but the love within them is not always there. Mothers who abort their children do not show much love for their child. It is understandable to see why a mother would abort her child if her life is at risk, but this is at the expense of a baby, who has no part in the decision. Abortion disrespects the safety of a child, which ultimately end in death. Not only is abortion unsafe for a child, but abortion can cause health problems in a woman later on. Abortion is immoral and unsafe for a mother and her child.
In some cases, women can abort their child during their third trimester. Allowing women to abort this late during their pregnancy is a huge problem. Whether they realize it or not, a child’s life begins at conception. After eighteen days, the baby’s heart is

People also think it is acceptable to have an abortion because they do not want to bring an unwanted child into the world due to birth defects. No reason is a good reason for killing an innocent, vulnerable child. In fact, out of all the abortions performed for expecting mothers, less than one-percent of them are to save the life of a woman. Also, to perform an abortion because the child has a birth defect is discriminatory against people with disabilities. Additionally, the baby’s right to be alive is much more important than the mother’s right of deciding whether she wants a child or not. Fortunately, a simple solution to this problem is adoption. Many people want to adopt children, with or without birth defects. Sadly, abortion not only kills babies, but it also prevents these people from creating a

    There are a lot of factors that go with abortion. Not all women that are pregnant and don’t want the baby get abortions. One reason some women get abortions is because they were rapped and can’t stand the fact that a “ monster baby” is growing inside them. Another reason sometimes is that they can’t afford to take care of the baby. If you can’t afford to take care of it then set it up for adoption so that the baby can have a chance at a good life.…

    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…

    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.…

    The exact moment of life isn’t always clear; therefore abortion shouldn’t be considered murder. Since the embryo would still be dependent on the mother’s body for survival, it is not a viable life in its own right. In an argument, if it wasn’t for abortion, more welfare-eligible babies will be born, also meaning increasing our tax cost. Not only the United States, but the world also is suffering from over population. People on the pro-choice side who are for abortion, believe that it will reduce the number of “unfit” people who reproduce (Crum & McCormack, 1992).…

    Since a cleft lip does not affect the wellbeing of the mother any government aid should be provided because it is solely a preference decision. Some abortions may be necessary because of specific conditions, but because of a baby not meeting the desired checklist, should not be allowed to receive government aid on an abortion because it is a decision that was made because the parents would not be happy with the child they would have…

    Why Is Abortion Wrong

    Abortion is murder. Birth control and protection is inexpensive. There is no reason that a pregnant woman should want to get rid of a fetus when there are people from all around the world that try day in and day out to have kids or people that just can't have kids in general. If someone is not ready to have a kid they should not be having sexual intercourse or they should use some sort of protection. Some people say it’s their choice whether they can kill their baby or not but people should choose not to kill an innocent child.…

    There has been a long existing debate of “Pro-Life” versus “Pro-Choice” about whether or not women should be able to abort a child. Many people being Pro-Choice will use the argument that the fetus isn 't a living person, and rather that it is the woman’s body; therefore the woman’s choice. There are other options women have such as adoption: waiting until the baby is born and providing the child a well-suited family to properly care for them. I believe any way you can avoid aborting a child is better than abortion because you give the child a chance for life. An unborn child in the womb contains all of the characteristics for it to be considered living, proving abortion is morally and scientifically wrong.…

    The main reason why people have an abortion is because that person feels as though they are not ready to raise a child. So when people who are pro-choice make the argument that abortion is great for rape victims, it only a…

    But the most important life in this situation is the living human being and their experiences and goals and that should be protected at all costs. Finally, one may say that the woman should have the child and give it up for adoption to avoid having an abortion and to still give the child a chance at having a good life. This is also not a good point because many children do not have happy and fulfilling lives while going through the foster care system and there are already so many children that do not have parents, it would be morally wrong to force the child into that condition as well. In conclusion, Don Marquis’ position outlined in his essay “Why Abortion is Immoral” is not a good argument because it ignores the life of the woman and disregards the potential results of the living conditions of the child if he or she would be born into a family with…

    Let’s say the mother isn’t trying to get pregnant, but she ends up accidentally messing up her birth control. She doesn’t mean to get pregnant, she won’t be able to survive the pregnancy, and therefore, the fetus has very little chance of survival. This makes it absolutely okay for the mother to get an abortion. Some people may argue that the fetus still has a chance at being born, so getting an abortion doesn’t seem like the only option. They think that if there is a chance of survival for the fetus, there should be measures taken to ensure a life for the fetus.…
