So this report is saying if you have sex, regardless if you took precautions to not get pregnant, then you must have the child that results from that action. At some point, a woman will be faced with carrying a child within her body and keeping the child or having an abortion. In an article by Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive did a poll of 1,209 women that had abortions states “that 74% said they could not afford to have a baby, and 38% said giving birth would interfere with their education and career goals.” They are saying here that the larger percent of women did not have the means to support a child and the smaller percent is saying they didn’t want the baby to obstruct their learning or livelihood. These are women who gave thought to others by not wanting to depend on our government to subsidize their living because they could not afford to have a child in their current situation. As well they are stating that they wanted to continue on with their education and career goals. They decided to be proactive with their right to choose, not only what is best for her but what was right to society. The economic benefits for women who have a legal abortion outweigh those who opt for keeping an unwanted

    A pregnant woman is indefinitely left to decide whether or not abortion is the best decision for her. Likewise, when it comes to the argument of adoption, the woman still has the right to choose because it is her body being used. One woman argues that laws forcing a woman to go through a pregnancy unwillingly is a prime example of bodily intrusion. She also states that is comparable to forcing someone to give bone marrow to save a child (Borgmann). There are simply too many factors that go into the cases of abortion.…

    Abortion is a very divisive subject that people don’t typically enjoy discussing, but it is such a common procedure these days that discussing it is necessary. People could argue for what seems like forever about whether or not abortion should remain legal or how the law can better regulate abortions based on how far into the pregnancy a woman is and why she is considering terminating the pregnancy. While we may never come to a unanimous decision, we should at least agree that abortions in order to save the life of the mother are justified. Consider a twenty-seven year old mother of four who has a history of moderate yet controlled pulmonary hypertension and is being seen at her pulmonologist’s office for worsening symptoms in mid-October…

    Of the many controversies that have been discussed, the argument of whether abortion should be legal continues to be one of the main issues in the United States. The focal point of this argument centers around whether or not a woman’s right to choose is more important than the right to life of a baby. There are two types of abortions: spontaneous abortions and induced abortions. A spontaneous abortion is the same thing as having a miscarriage, which occurs naturally and most of the time against the woman’s will. An induced abortion is an abortion that the patient asks for in order to prevent the birth of their child.…

    If we continue to stop abortions than we really can help others who can’t have children. A woman should not have the right to abort her child because it can cause medical complications, the abortion can have a mental impact on the mother, and she has other options like putting the child up for adoption. Individuals nowadays exploit fetus removal and manhandled it and utilize it as a contraception. Fetus removal is a "war against the unborn" ( ) and should keep the baby unless a threatening matter happens. The individuals who choose to have abortions are mainly minors or young ladies with poor beneficial experience to see completely what they are…

    There are few things in this world that will strike more fear into the heart of a woman—or a man, for that matter—than an unplanned pregnancy. Now the woman faces a choice: does she carry the fetus to term, or does she terminate the pregnancy? There are countless reasons for both options, such as the mother’s health, the health of the fetus, religious views, and how the mother was brought up. There are some instances in which a mother could feel that she could not rely on her family for support, such as cases of rape and incest. In this paper, I will take a categorical approach to show you how abortion can be ethical.…

    Thinking outside the box, the harder it is to get an abortion, the more women there are who are forced to keep a child they cannot provide for. This will lead them to utilize government assistance, in many different forms, which is already underfunded. Also statistically the child will follow in the mother’s footsteps, which could possibly lead to a never ending cycle of generations after generations utilizing government assistance to the fullest. Another thing to consider is women and young girls hurting and,potentially, killing themselves attempting to get rid of the unwanted fetus. A lot of young girls and women are ashamed of having a baby out of wedlock.…
