INTRODUCTION

After researching everything about our topic on abortion, we learned a lot about it that really answered our questions. Abortion on the other hand, is the termination of a pregnancy before the birth with the consequent death of a fetus. If the fetus does not develop normally abortion may occur or the mother’s suffers from an injury or disorder there is prevention on her part to stretch the pregnancy to its full term. Such spontaneous abortion is generally called as miscarriage. You might be thinking who are the persons who are capable of aborting infants are, well these people are rape victims, teenagers who got pregnant accidentally, and successful singles that was not prepared to carry a child inside them. Another thing that bothered you is why is there a need for them to abort their child? One of their reasons is financial incapability of both couples. Another reason is unwanted pregnancy because they were not prepared to have it in the first place. And those who were victims of rape want to abort their infants because they think that, the infant would be a memory for what had happened to them. Here is a question that really bothered us all, why is abortion legal to some countries? The answer may be valid or not valid for you, but it is valid for the country that made that law. Places like the US, and some places in the UK like England, Scotland and Wales (they allow abortion until at the 24th week of pregnancy). They made abortion legal because women are, obviously, known human persons. They make up the majority of known human persons. Human persons have rights that an embryo or fetus does not have until its personhood can be established. The point at which a fetus can be taken from the womb and, given the proper medical care, still have a meaningful chance of long-term survival. The government has a legitimate interest in protecting the potential rights of the fetus, but the fetus itself does not have rights prior to the viability threshold. While researching about it, we also found out that there are person that use abortion as a service. Their reason is they learn a lot from the person that wants to abort their child. Before they abort the baby inside the person, they ask them why they want to do it, and why is there a need for them to abort the child. They do it because they see it as a help for the person. They are aware that it is a sin against the church. Some of us also wanted to know if abortion is also carried out in the hospital. Well, abortions are not always carried out in hospital. During early medical abortions the tablets are administered at a hospital or clinic, but most women return home afterwards. Vacuum aspirations and D&Es may also take place in a hospital or specialised and approved clinic as a day procedure, however if they involve local or general anaesthetic the stay may be longer or overnight. The question that really bothered us, is having an abortion a risk to a woman’s health? Yes, it is a risk to women’s health because they may experience excessive bleeding, damage of the cervix or womb, and Post-abortion infection that brings with it fever, discharge, bleeding or abdominal pain. Along our research on abortion we found out that medical abortion, suction curettage, dilation and curettage, digoxin, and intact dilation and evacuation. Thus, there are many other processes used for abortion which are vacuum aspiration and dilation and curettage as well as there are surgical methods for removal of fetus from the uterus with the advancement of science and technology in medical realm.These are just few processes that are being used for the deletion of an embryo or fetus of an unborn child from the mother’s abdominal tract. Before they become capable of surviving outside the tract this should be resorted to. There is a strong distinction between abortion as well as birth of a child.You might be thinking what we could do to prevent abortion, is to implement strict laws against...
