I think it should be legal because so many teenagers party and take ilegal substances which may cause them to sexual intercourse unpretected an make the young teenager pregnant. She should have an abortion if she is pregnant because she may have a bright future an this may ruin it.
If a woman were to become pregnant, and it would effect her life in a way she wasn't ready for, who are we to tell her that she has to carry it anyways? Also, say she got raped? Forcing her to carry a child that she might not even love is cruel, both for the mother and the child. Once the child is born, it would become a constant reminder to the mother about the rape. She wouldn't love the child, she could spurn it and hate it, and take her anger out on in. No child should be subject to the emotional and physical abuse that could occur.
No matter how you look at it, killing a baby in its mother womb IS murder in the FIRST DEGREE! NO taxpayer should be paying for murder of innocent babes, they should be funding a program to HELP POOR MOTHERS care for their child, or legally put them up for adoption.
For instance, suppose the person got raped? Or is not financially stable to take care of this baby? These are things we must look at, it is bad for ourselves to not have family planning but to be pregnant and not have a good financial background or not even have a father to help in supporting the mother .. So yes I think abortion should be legal.. Thank you
Sometimes people make a mistake, but that mistake should not be able to ruin someones live especially if they have a bright future ahead of them. For example, if a teenager gets pregnant, I believe she should get an abortion. Teenagers aren't capable of raising themselves without a challenge, if they could, why would they still be living with their parents?
I am holding something in each of my hands. In one hand, I am holding a two month old baby. In the other, an unborn fetus in a Petri dish. I am going to drop one of them, and you choose which one. Shot in the dark you choose the fetus, because you know there's a difference.
Abortion should at least be given a chance because no one under the age of 19, is ready to have a baby yet. They just don't want to be lonely. Although people make mistakes, there is still a such thing called protection. They should always double or triple the condom.
A child shouldn't spend his life knowing his parents are stuck with him. Also a woman has to have all the rights to her own body. If someone rapes you, do you want to have his child? I don't think so. Besides, there are already too much of us on this planet.
I think that abortion should be legal and for the people who want to go get an abortion can go get one.. And the people who dont believe in it then dont worry about the people doing it! Its their body and they should be able to do as they please
What if she gets raped? What if her life is at risk, or what if the baby has no chance in having a normal life? What if she is in no means financially stable to have a baby? What happens when abortion is illegal? That is about 900,000 unwanted babies.
At the moment of Conception a life is created. When a woman has an abortion she is essentially murdering her baby. If the child is not wanted there are other options such as adoption, if you can not love your own child there are others than can and will love them.
Abortion kills living children that could one day grow up to be an important part of the world. What if Abraham Lincoln's mother decided to get an abortion? Slavery might still be a part of our lives. Abortion is horrible and kills our own people. How would you feel if you had to die without a say or an argument. Your parents didn't abort you, so don't abort your child.
I don't even understand how this is a debate. Abortion is never the best choice. It is murder whether people want to admit this or not. Life begins at conception as the fetus starts to develop immediately and its cells contain HUMAN DNA different from their mothers immediately after conception. Homicide is forcefully ending a life of another human being. A fetus is a human being. Therefore abortion is homicide.
Abortion should be legal if the babies are not persons. What is the difference between a baby in the womb and a 2 year old? There are 4 basic differences, they are the size, level of development, environment, and degree of dependency.
Is a fetus a nonperson due to its size? Is a 4 foot person any less a person than a 6 foot one? No, so the size no matter what of the fetus should make the fetus or any human a nonperson.
The second thing is level of developement. Is a 17 year old more developed physically and mentally than a 2 year old? Yes. But is that 2 year old any less human? No. Level of developement had nothing to due with the nature of personhood.
Thirdly is the environment. How does a change of location classify a human as a nonperson? Does moving to a new state make you not a person? So how does living in a womb make a baby not a person, and quite simply it doesn't.
And finally is the degree of dependency. Are diabetics living on insulin or a man living on life support make them nonpersons? Would it be right to kill them based on their condition? No, so why would it be right to murder a baby in the womb.
The abortion issue isn't about the rights of the mother. It's about the rights of the baby. Murdering a human being is never okay. And. Based on the evidence above I have concluded that fetuses are persons and shod therefore have their own undeniable rights.
Scientifically, the life of a human begins at fertilization. This is agreed upon among embryologists, but debated among those who are not experts in the field. (For some reason, people seem to assume they know better than embryologists.) Thus, killing the fetus is killing a human. This is called murder.
What if you were the fetus in the womb? What if your mother chose abortion? Where would you be today? You wouldn't be here to read this. So choose life for your children's sake and your child's children's sake. Because when you take away one life, you take away many. My mother chose life and I'm glad she did.
A baby is living in the womb and deserves a chance. If your raped give the baby away. Pro-abortionists say that outlawing abortion would restrict a woman’s right to privacy. Is that right absolute? Does somebody’s right to privacy exceed another’s right to live? God created life and it is a sin to take it away.
But it never will be because according to America's rights, women have the choice to kill their babies. Even if someone agrees that the baby actually is a lifeform in the womb (which is still a human lifeform no matter what stage it is at), they may say that women who are raped or unplanned should be allowed to abort their babies. I say they shouldn't for two reasons. The first, because their babies are their own and even if they didn't expect it, they still have an orphanage or anywhere else they can go to live the rest of their lives. And if it was unplanned, it's simply being selfish and cruel. The second is because most women who abort their babies because of rape is a small percentage compared to those who abort because they didn't plan for it. If a teenager gets pregnant and doesn't want her parents to know, that person is being selfish for the wrong that she did. It's wrong for her to end her baby's life before it starts because of her secrecy. It shouldn't be, but it nonetheless will continue..
I believe abortion should not be legal in any states in America. A drunk driver can be charged with two counts of murder if he kills a pregnant women; but under many arguments said by Pro-Choice and Pro-Abortion people it is not a "living human being". so why is it that someone can be charged with taking two lives if women are doing it with no consequences everyday? It is because our country recognizes a fetus as a person. I am not religious so I am not Pro-Choice because the bible said or because my God thinks so, I am Pro-Choice because each life should be valued i should not be allowed to take anyone's life and as soon as doctors can tell your are carrying a life is when i believe you lose your right to do what you want with your body. Unless in extreme medical conditions where mother or child could die i don't think women should be killing babies because the rent is high this month and they cant afford it or because they didn't use protection. its a life and the only reason people pretend its not is so they can feel better at night.
Another life should not be wasted because someone did not choose use protection. I know many will argue about rape, but those make up 1-2% of abortions. I think abortion is just a shortcut. It doesn't make people deal with their problem like adoption would. Adoption would ha a bigger effect because people would have longer consequences to deter them.
