Argument In Favor Of Abortion

Good Essays
Nearly half of the population bump heads when it comes to the topic, Abortion. Abortion is defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as: "the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus." However, if only the arguments over the abortion topic were as simple as the definition provided above. Much like every aspect of human life, statements are neither right nor wrong, but simply left open for interpretation. In my belief, abortion is deplorable. To start with, you should have never laid down and had sexual intercourse and became pregnant if you knew you did have the ability to keep the child. Yes, I do understand many people make mistakes and mess up as well as I do, …show more content…
How could you kill an innocent child for your own actions? How could you deny an innocent life because having a baby is not in your favor? Just like Jason Ladock, an expert author and administrator in Health Guidance, said “After all, abortion implies denying someone a well-deserved life. Just because the odds are not in our favor, can we deprive someone the chance to live?” Abortion should not be a choice; you should have to suffer the consequences for your own actions. When someone kills an expecting mother, the murderer is charged with double homicide. So, how does a mother go to the point of paying some strangers to dismember the child 's arms and legs during an abortion which results in a deceased child and it not be considered murder? Majority of the population is also for abortion when it comes to someone being raped and becomes pregnant. With that being said it takes at least 16 days for a heartbeat to form which means you can have the egg killed before a heartbeat is formed instead of killing the newly formed human after the fact. Everyone is quick to scream that when a woman gets raped and …show more content…
There are many reasons why people are for abortion. For example, a girl got raped and she did not want to carry the child so she got an abortion. Or for instance, the girl was too young to have a child so she felt as if she was not responsible enough to raise the child so then she got an abortion. Such as Maureen Shaw, Pro-Choice advocate said “As a woman and a pro-choice advocate, I’ve always respected a person’s decision to seek abortion care. But it wasn’t until I became a mother that I really understood their decision. Raising a child is an all-encompassing phenomenon, something you can never understand until you’re in the thick of it—and definitely something you should bypass until you’re ready.” Many women will say abortion is something that should be a right when a female has been raped. Many will also argue that they have the right to choose what happens to their body. And they also argue that if you are raped and forced to have the child you would have a constant reminder of the horrible act that brought your child into this world. Also in some cases the baby could cause health problems for the mother and could cause the mother to die which would bring the mother to have an abortion to save their own life. Another reason why a mother would seek an abortion is if they find out their child has a disability and they do not want to see the child

    In the article written by Bradford it state, ‘The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself; and if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell others not to kill one another” (Theresa 1). In other words, by allowing a mother to get an abortion we violates all the rights that child has and make it right for others to do so. By a mother aborting and killing their own child demonstrate that we can not do nothing to stop other from killing one another. This is because if it is right for a mother to commit such act why can someone else do the same thing but towards another person. Abortion should be…

Abortion is considered the “death penalty” for an innocent child simply because the parents were not ready for a child or the parents did not want a baby. The main people who are affected in this matter are the parents of the unborn baby, and the unborn baby.…

    “Murder is the “unlawful killing of a human being” with some level of intent.”(source 6) People are right about abortion being murder. But what they don’t know is that the baby in the womb isn’t actually considered alive until 16-17 weeks in the womb so if the woman was to have the abortion within the 16 to 17 weeks then it really wouldn’t be considered murder and besides the woman should be able to choose if she wants an abortion because she may have health problems or she just wouldn’t be able to take care of the child. People say that abortion should be illegal because you’re murdering a human being which could be true at some point but again some people don’t know that the baby isn’t fully alive until 16-17 weeks. For example “This is why abortion must be illegal if murder is illegal. 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.…
