    A birth announcement should be a proclamation that should bring happiness and joy. Instead, an annunciation of a baby being a girl has become dangerous. In India and many other parts of the world, thousands of girls are victims of abuse, negligence, and murder, simply because they are girls. Similarly, to genocide where a specific group is deliberately exterminated, gendercide is a sex-selective killing where men or women are victims disproportionately (Carpenter). The war against women in India goes back centuries with the deeply rooted, sexist cultural dynamics as well as the ineffective and unfair government policies that have led to the increase rates of gendercide.…

    Based on the fact that abortion is murder coincides with the idea that women will realized the immoral actions they have taken. These actions will have an affect on women mentally and physically. Abortion can potentially be a life risk because “two or three women out of 1,000 need follow-up care for...after a medical abortion, with a death rate of 0.5 out of 100,000” (Bazelon). Given that the percentage of medical care and death rate exist suggests that some women could possibly be affected physically after an abortion.

    Female children are seen as a liability because, in this part of the world, the family of the bride must pay a dowry to the groom’s family, as I previously mentioned. As a result of this practice, male children are seen as assets and are preferred over girls because they will contribute to the family’s wealth and will remain in the family to take care of parents and family members when they become elderly, whereas female children will eventually take money from the family to give to their husbands as a dowry and will become part of their husbands family, meaning they can not take care of their parents in old age. This preference for men has resulted in a skewed ratio between men and women in Southeast Asia, but especially India, which has arisen from increasing technology that has allowed pre- and post-conception sex selection, enabling parents to ensure they have a male child. One pre-conception option that allows parents to preselect the gender of the fetus is in-vitro fertilization, however, this is very expensive. Most families opt for the post-conception option of sex-selective abortion, where once the gender of the child is determined, the fetus is aborted if the child is a female.…

    For example, if they get pregnant and it is unwanted then they want have to worry about the things that they have to get together before the baby is born the pregnancy can be terminated. On the other hand abortions can be a help to rape victims, women of incest and/or with health problems because if a women is of incest or is raped then they shouldn’t have to go through a full pregnancy term.

    Moreover, with the influence of the Hyde Amendment state legislatures approved many restrictions of abortion procedures including “mandatory waiting periods, parental notice and consent requirements, counseling requirements, and bans on partial birth abortions” (Barusch, 2014, p.389). These restrictions create unacceptable barriers to women’s access to their reproductive related services, particular many vulnerable women including adolescent women, low-income women, and women of color. According the Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment, “repressive abortion policy creates serious undue burdens for women in these groups by limiting physical access to the services, by making the costs of services prohibitive, and by creating a social stigma surrounding abortion that challenges the self-trust and overall trust that women must have to confidently exercise sound reproductive choices” (Ely & Dulmus, 2010, p.660). This shows that abortion policy creates social and economic discrimination against those vulnerable women by forcing them to keep unwanted pregnancies or childbearing. As a result, the vulnerable women are in the risk of unsafe and illegal abortion, which leads the negative effects on their reproductive health.…
