Why allow abortion to take place when there's no positive outcome? Abortion is the termination of pregnancy before the embryo or fetus can live independently. It is one of the most common medical procedures that women of ages 15-44 in the United States do. Women all over the world are having abortions now a days on a daily basis. These women believe there are many reasons to do so. Such as, fear of having or raising a child. Regardless of the situation every child has the right to live.
One reason why abortion is wrong is when women become pregnant, they should accept the responsibility that comes with ...view middle of the document...
It’s the mother’s choice to choose to raise her child or to basically act like it never was. When in reality it is.
For that reason, the mother should take full on responsibility for her child. What is understandable, is not being able to provide for your child, or giving that child the life it deserves. Therefore, giving a child up for adoption is also an option to take into consideration. It’s a chance that the child will benefit in the long run.
By doing so, that child is having the opportunity to live. Providing that child with a good family is a big deal. By the mother giving her child up for adoption the mother is putting her child before her own selfish needs or wants. Accepting the responsibilities that come with having a child is a lot to take in. It’s adapting to a whole different life style. It’s no longer that person’s life now, there’s another life added on to the equation.
Becoming a mother is not easy, is not meant to be. It’s putting your child’s needs before yours. Having a baby means being able to raise it, showing it love, and being financially stable. Some mothers feel like they can’t fulfill the need to meet the obligations for the unborn child. When in reality they should grow up and face the consequences of their actions. By making positive decisions regarding their child’s future.
Another reason why I don’t support abortion is because it causes psychological damage. After aborting a child, the mother most likely feels a sense of loss and regret. Her conscience reminding her of how life could have turned out if she would have done things differently. By choosing another outcome instead of a drastic decision such as bringing death to her unborn child. These women start to have behavior changes physically and emotionally. There were 16,630 abortions in 2010, the loss of those 16,630 children is a tragic loss for our nation. (Fairfax, 2011, pp.7) There has been a lot of mothers that need to go to counseling after they have an abortion so they can get their life back in order after the horrible choice they made. For example, a negative impact due to abortion would be the risk of damage to the mother’s reproductive organs. Also, the ability of not being able to have children in the future, and having trouble with intimate relationships. Many women can also suffer from depression, drugs, alcohol, and suicidal thoughts because of the trauma. Sleeping problems may occur as well such as sleep deprived, nightmares, hearing a baby’s cry, and hallucinating.
An example of a drug that can cause psychological damage, is Mifepristone (pill). It’s another way that women choose to end an unexpected pregnancy early. The pill was approved by the FDA in September 2000. (Finer, 2003, pp.10) This pill is another way that prevents women from having a child she thinks she’s not ready for. It can also lead to psychological damage. By having a variety of side effects that can affect the women in a negative way. Moreover, why would women...
