Abortion should be allowed because if women get pregnant and they are still in school, they should have the choice to abort the baby because they are not ready for one and they do not want to ruin their future. http://www.operationrescue.org...
Abortion is ending a life of a child that is meant to be born. Abortion can happen at 5 weeks and even though it's not fully developed, able to understand human actions, and functionable it is meant to live a life and that right shouldn't be taken away from something that can't speak out or is able to communicate with us.
Abortion is about allowing woman the right to make choices about when they want to have children in relation to their age, financial stability & relationship stability. It is the not the place of government to legislate against woman's choices. Women should not be forced to keep a child if they do not want it. For example, if a woman conceives a child then the couple become divorced, the woman should not have to keep the child because she needs to get back on her feet without the burden of having to raise a child as a single mother.
Abortions effect the human body of a women in many ways. After a women gets an abortion they can have bad abdominal pain, nausea, internal bleeding, infections, damages to the organs, high fevers, and even deaths. This shows that abortions are risky to a women and not only can they cause the death of their fetus but also of themselves if their body can't handle it.
A study shows that having an abortion causes 1 out of 100 women to die in their first trimester and 1 out of 50 in later trimesters. While having natural birth causes 303,000 deaths per year. This shows that having an abortion causes less deaths then going through with birth.
59% of women have abortions and have already had a previous childbirth. If they were able to care for their previous child then they should be able to care for their second. They should be able to care for their second child because women in there 20's are more likely to get an abortion than girls who are 15-19. This means that the women getting abortions are older and it's wrong for them to have an abortion since they should be more responsible and understand the concept of sex better. These women in there 20's have more access to protection than these younger girls.
Birth defects cause for 40 percent of all abortions. This shows that the child is going to live a short painful life. So having an abortion would leave the child in less pain. The child might have a terminal disease and as soon as they are born they will die. It is heart breaking to see your child die right in front of you. So abortion would create less pain for everybody.
There has been several cases where people are often misdiagnosed. About 12 million people are misdiagnosed each year. This means that there are children that are born perfectly normal after their parents were told to abort because their child would be born with an effect.
Making laws against abortion, will never stop abortions. All it will do is make abortions less safe. Women will get an abortion either way if they really want it. The only thing that changes is more women die. Every year 78,000 women die from an unsafe abortion.
Women who become pregnant from rape should not be forced to keep the child. Odds are 1 in 3 women will be a victim of rape or incest. that is almost 33% of women. They should not be forced to carry around a reminder to the horrors that occurred to her.
Also if you are really against abortion, people should be educated about safe sex and lower the cost of birth control. But Pro-Life supporters are also against teaching things like this in school. So if they really want to lower abortions they should be for these things.
A fetus at about 20 weeks feels pain so while the women is receiving an abortion the fetus is going through pain and is helpless. This is putting an end to a life in a harmful and painful way. Also abortion reduces the chances of women adopting children.
About 80% of women abort babies who are suppose to have Down syndrome which shouldn't happen because people with Down syndrome contribute to society in many ways. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 protect people with disabilities so they can have a long and full filling life. This means that there is no reason for women to abort.
