Abortion Facilities Impacting Women for the Good
In the year of 1973, the option of receiving an abortion became legalized due to the case of Roe v Wade. (NRLC). Women in the earlier years were having unsafe procedures to terminate a pregnancy, due to the negative views people held on the topic, they sought alternative methods. Some people highly place abortions on an ethnics issue stand, judging whether the act is moral or unmoral or whether the bad outweighs the good. This issue, when debated, is focused mainly on the life on the baby not yet born, rather than the mother childbearing. Abortions should be viewed to others as an advantage to women because it provides them with a healthier and optimistic lifestyle.
Pro-choice is seen as a “helping milestone” for women and a fundamental to female empowerment and equality according to Valerie Tarico in which women are more in control of their bodies (AlterNet). The popular motto in the pro-choice movement is “Trust Women” meaning that no other person can make a decision better than the women herself. This motto “means that no one else can make a better decision- because no one else is living her life, and since she will have to live with that not you, and not that state legislature or the Supreme Court- chances are she is doing her best in a tight spot” says Katha Pollitt as she attempts to show women should be able to make a decision upon themselves (Pollitt). Having the chance to obtain an abortion provides women to have plans, dreams, and aspirations managed by themselves. Allowing women to turn to getting an abortion helps women feel more empowered to take measures necessary to creates her decisions. Women will feel more relieved knowing they are in charge of themselves and can make a call they believe will do them good. Tarico states that women who “lack the means to manage her fertility lacks the means to manage…...

...Abortion is the intentional termination of a pregnancy after conception. It allows women to put an end to their pregnancies, but involves killing the undeveloped embryo or fetus. For this reason, it is a very controversial subject in American politics. Supporters of abortion rights argue that the embryo or fetus is not a person, or at least that the government has no right to ban abortion unless it can prove that an embryo or fetus is a person. Abortion has been legal in every U.S. state since 1973. When the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade (1973) that women have the right to make medical decisions about their own bodies. Roe v. Wade is a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion. Decided simultaneously with a companion case, Doe v. Bolton, the Court ruled that a right to privacy under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment extended to a woman's decision to have an abortion, but that right must be balanced against the state's two legitimate interests in regulating abortions: protecting prenatal life and protecting women's health. Arguing that these state interests became stronger over the course of a pregnancy, the Court resolved this balancing test by tying state regulation of abortion to the trimester of pregnancy. The Court later rejected Roe's trimester framework, while affirming Roe's central holding that a person has a right to abortion until viability. The Roe decision defined "viable" as being potentially able to live......

...SHOULD ABORTION BE LEGAL? By MARY W. DOUGLAS FINAL PAPER PHL-103INFORMAL LOGIC ANTHONY BIDUCK-INSTRUCTOR SEPTEMBER 8, 2013 Final Paper DouglasM1 Thesis The definition of abortion is the induced termination of a pregnancy followed by the death of the embryo or fetus. The paper is presented on the moral issues of Abortion. Should abortion be legal? As today’s society becomes more open-minded to an issue normally handled behind closed doors being performed by persons with no medical degree whatsoever, the choice should be left to the individual whether or not to have an abortion. Abortion is an eight letter word that has become a label that society applies to the procedure in which a pregnancy is purposely ended for many reasons. Let us examine the subject of legalizing abortion. Argument Abortion has been a very controversial topic for many years. With women’s rights to vote, the right to burn their bras if they wanted to, and the right to eliminate a developing fetus from a woman’s body has become a great debate. Abortion is a subject that questions the morals of an individual and their decision as to whether to have one or not. Moral philosophy has always investigated the rules and......

... PRO-CHOICE Abortion is the termination or premature ending of pregnancy by removal or expulsion of a fetus or embryo from the uterus. An abortion can happen spontaneously because of complications for the period of a pregnancy, or the abortion can be induced. A therapeutic abortion is an induced abortion, which is carried out to save or preserve the health of the mother. An elective abortion is an abortion carried out for any other reasons. Therefore, abortion refers to the induced abortion of pregnancy. Abortion is generally used to mean an induced termination of pregnancy whereas a miscarriage is generally used to mean a spontaneous termination of pregnancy. In abortion, the termination is intentional while in miscarriage, the termination is not intentional (Naden, 2007). Pro-choice abortion is the conviction that all women have the absolute right to choose to whether to abort a baby from their bodies. The paramount view of the pro-choice is that a baby ultimately does not have any human rights within its mother’s womb. A Pro-choice abortion allows women to have a choice on how to abort the unwanted child. Characteristically, the method of abortion is ultimately determined by the fetus age. During the first trimester of the fetus growth, a woman can choose to have a Suction Abortion or to use pills popularly known as the morning after pill or. On the start of the fourth month, the abortion is more often than not performed by Dilation...

...Justine Harris Mrs. Baldwin ENG101 4-19-12 Abortions Some people may walk into hospitals thinking how many babies were killed today. What right does a woman have to take away an innocent life? Have you ever had a fear of a change that might become crucial in your life? What if this change causes responsibility that should lie on your shoulders? Can we suppose that this is what makes women have abortions nowadays? We probably can, but another question is whether this fear can be an excuse for having an abortion. In this paper I am going to discuss why every child deserves a chance at life. "Abortion is murder". People opposed to abortion because they strongly believe that abortions takes away the "right to live", and is morally wrong. Even Though, others are for abortions argue that the statement is just a religious belief. It also has been said that a “person” applies to all human things especially from conception an egg is considered a human (Abcarian). Pro-abortionists consider that having an abortion is the woman’s choice and that it does not matter if they receive them. Every human deserves to live, therefore abortions should be illegal. What makes abortion murder? The definition of abortion is the "termination of pregnancy" which means killing a fetus. Stopping the women's pregnancy means to destroy the embryo or of the fetus. In some people’s eyes they believe it is the same as slaughtering a baby. They believe that the fetus is a separate human being. To this...

...immorality of abortion. What primarily makes killing wrong is neither its effect on the murderer nor its effect on the victim’s friends and relatives, but its effect on the victim. The loss of one’s life is one of the greatest losses one can suffer. The loss of one’s life deprives one of all the experiences, activities, projects, and enjoyments which would otherwise have constituted one’s future. Therefore, killing someone is wrong, primarily because the killing inflicts (one of) the greatest possible losses on the victim. This is one of the most hotly contested topics in today’s society. People adopt different viewpoints on this which include: • Abortion is wrong whatever the reasons • Abortion is permissible if the woman’s life is at risk • Abortion is acceptable for a variety of reasons Your opinion on whether abortion is acceptable or not very much depends upon your set of values. If you feel that it is a woman’s right to choose then you are likely to favor the ‘pro-choice’ stance. But if you argue that the fetus has rights and should be treated the same as any other human being then you will adopt the ‘pro-life’ stance. Opponents of abortion cite several reasons for their opposition which include the killing of an innocent human being, the fetus’s right to life, the responsibility of the woman towards the fetus and respect for all forms of life. There are people who are against abortion on principle but do recognize that there are situations in which abortion......

...Abortion: A History of Controversy, Court Cases, and Contention Abortion: A History of Controversy, Court Cases, and Contention By: Carla Phillips Pol-210 Submitted July 28, 2014 “Abortion: A History of Controversy, Court Cases, and Contention” Carla Phillips, POL-210 This research is a chronology of abortion not only from a legislative aspect, but also a social one. The goal is to show both sides of the abortion debate through court decisions, social activism, and well-known opponents and proponents. This will be an objective look at the topic without regards to my personal opinion. Abortion is a widely disputed topic within the United States. Whether politically inclined or not, most people have an opinion on abortion. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines abortion as “the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus”. ("Abortion - Medical Definition and More from Merriam-Webster", n.d) Even the basic definition invokes a debate. Proponents of abortion argue that life does not begin at conception, making the phrase “death of the embryo or fetus” inaccurate. Something cannot die if it hasn’t yet lived. Opponents of abortion, on the other hand, argue that life does begin with conception, making abortion tantamount to murder. The American Medical Association first condemned any abortion with the exception of ones performed to preserve the life of the mother or......

...Abortion Shauntel Williams MED100 Medical Law, Liability, & Ethics Robyn Johnson November 6, 2014 Shauntel Williams Robyn Johnson MED100 Medical Law, Liability, and Ethics November 6, 2014 Abortion The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court’s 7-2 decision on Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973. Proponents, identifying themselves as pro-choice, contend that choosing abortion is a right that should not be limited by governmental or religious authority, and which outweighs any right claimed for an embryo or fetus. They say that pregnant women will resort to unsafe illegal abortions if there is no legal option. Opponents, identifying themselves as pro-life, contend that personhood begins at conception, and therefore abortion is the immoral killing of an innocent human being. They say abortion inflicts suffering on the unborn child, and that it is unfair to allow abortion when couples who cannot biologically conceive are waiting to adopt. Variations exist in arguments on both sides of the debate. Some pro-choice proponents believe abortion should only be used as a last resort, while others advocate unrestricted access to abortion services under any circumstance. Pro-life positions range from opposing abortion under any circumstance to accepting it for situations of rape, incest, or when a woman's life is at risk. Some prominent pro-choice......

...In Brief Facts on Induced Abortion Worldwide WORLDWIDE INCIDENCE AND TRENDS • After declining substantially between 1995 and 2003, the worldwide abortion rate stalled between 2003 and 2008. • Between 1995 and 2003, the abortion rate (the number of abortions per 1,000 women of childbearing age—i.e., those aged 15–44) for the world overall dropped from 35 to 29. It remained virtually unchanged, at 28, in 2008. • Nearly half of all abortions worldwide are unsafe, and nearly all unsafe abortions (98%) occur in developing countries. In the developing world, 56% of all abortions are unsafe, compared with just 6% in the developed world. • The proportion of abortions worldwide that take place in the developing world increased between 1995 and 2008 from 78% to 86%, in part because the proportion of all women who live in the developing world increased during this period. • Since 2003, the number of abortions fell by 600,000 in the developed world but increased by 2.8 million in the developing world. In 2008, six million abortions were performed in developed countries and 38 million in developing countries, a disparity that largely reflects population distribution. • A woman’s likelihood of having an abortion is slightly elevated if she lives in a developing region. In 2008, there were 29 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years in developing countries, compared with 24 per 1,000 in the developed world.

...May 2015 Abortion From a Different Perspective One of the most popular and controversial topics of today’s society is abortion. This topic brings up a lot of turmoil due to the ethical standpoint most people have on it. There are two distinct sides of this topic: pro-life and pro-choice. Pro-life deems abortion unethical and a form of “violent penetration” (NRTL 2013). On the other side, pro-choice views abortion as a safe and ethical option for teens and young adults that conceive under certain circumstances. Being a male, abortion is a topic that does not affect me directly, but affects me indirectly. Looking at this subject in the perspective of woman can be difficult at times, yet, us men need to realize that one day we could possibly have a wife and a daughter. Would we force our daughter to birth a child that she is not suitable for? Or to birth a child conceived by rape? These questions lead me to choose which side I stand on for this topic. I am pro-choice because it is a healthy alternative, a medically safe procedure and ultimately up to the woman who is carrying the child. Conceiving a child when a woman is not prepared can be a scary incident. Most young teens that become pregnant fear of telling their parent and resort to illegal abortions that have caused “medical problems as a result” (NAF 2015). Around the world, illegal abortion is the number one cause of maternal death. It is estimated that “68,000 women worldwide die each year from unsafe abortions”......

...Abortion In the past thirty years, the issue of abortion has prevailed as possibly the most controversial health issue facing our nation. Within the issue clear sides can be drawn. Activists on either side are highly organized, pummeling the public with proof that abortion is either wrong or right. Stripped down, the abortion argument becomes a dispute between those who perceive the unborn fetus to be viable human life and likewise abortion as murder, and those who prioritize the rights of the living mother over those of an unborn fetus. The anti-abortion campaign is one based almost exclusively on religious notions and ideals. In contrast, those who support a woman's right to an abortion draw support from a combination of scientific evidence as well as moral and political issues. As a nation of reason and one that prioritizes the rights of its citizens above all other things, the right to an abortion must be protected. Pro-Life activists contend that a fetus is a human life and to end that life is murder. This belief is one based solely on religious philosophy. Scientific evidence is attestation to the fact that a fetus, especially one early in development, does not exhibit qualities marked by a human life. One of the most controversial issues of the abortion debate is the question of when life begins. Many anti-abortionists argue that life begins at conception. Therefore they contend that any process that terminates a pregnancy after a sperm has fertilized an......

...Women Abortion Margaret Higgins Sanger, an American birth control activist, sex educator, and nurse once said “No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.” This can frustrate the law and religious restrictions of women about abortion. Today, abortion is a controversial issue. Many people argue that unborn babies are human beings from the moment of conception; therefore abortion involves killing a human being, which defies a commandment from God. On the contrary, other people say that to choose safe abortion is a right for women and the anti-abortion position is usually based on religious beliefs and threatens the vital separation of church and state. In fact, abortion is completely safe and to hinder abortion also means to limit the women’s rights and cause harmful effects for them and their families. The government should give women the right to decide what they can or cannot do with their bodies instead of having some politicians or churches dictate this to them. To see this more clearly, we should have a look at the current situation of abortion. The issue of abortion is popular, controversial and closely related to the problem of women’s equality in our society. According to the Guttmacher Institute, each year, almost half of all pregnancies among American women are unintended. About half of these unplanned pregnancies, 1.3 million per year, are ended by abortion (par. 1, 3). In 1973, the Supreme Court case......

...to choose whether or not to have an abortion because of the circumstances surrounding the pregnancy, the constitutionality of the issue, and the health concerns of the mother and baby. During a lifetime, people encounter an infinite number of circumstances, some of which they cannot control. Circumstances surrounding a woman’s pregnancy become the basis of her decision whether or not to have an abortion. Some women grow up in dysfunctional homes, where they are subject to sexual abuse by family members. Many times, this sexual abuse leads to an unexpected and unwanted pregnancy. The abuser has already caused emotional and physical harm to the woman. A woman should be able to choose whether or not she wants to carry the child of someone who has already done this irreversible damage. Some women are in a circumstance of poverty and youth. During a nine year study by the CDC in 2008 “Adolescents aged 18-19 years accounted for the majority (63%) of adolescent abortions and had the highest adolescent abortion rates”(Pazol et al 5). These girls are of high school and college age, just beginning their lives. An abortion may enable them to finish school and get the education they need to become a productive member of society. Many women who have children too young, struggle to take care of themselves and their child, and most often live on government assistance programs to try and make ends meet. Although they may want children someday, an abortion today may help them eventually......
