Pro-Life: An Argument Against Abortion

Good Essays
Topics: Abortion, Pregnancy
“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.” ― Lord of the Rings Movie. ("15 of the Greatest Pro-Life Quotes of All Time", 2017). Abortion is a very controversial matter in our society today. About 1.1 million premature terminations occur in America each year. Abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy.

“This technique was widely practiced before 1880. 56% of U.S. adults say it should be legal in all or most cases, compared with 41% who say it should be illegal. Abortions have been around for thousands of years. However, in the eighteen hundreds abortions in the United States became illegal. (Lipka, 2016)

We all question what people believe is the right decision. You can argue with someone on their beliefs,

Pro-life is when individuals believe women should not have the right to abort a baby, pro-choice is the complete opposite. Pro-choice is the belief that a woman has the right to choose the best choice for her personal health, future, and moral sensibility. In my opinion abortion should be illegal. Life begins at conception, therefore I view the termination of a fetus as murder. Taking away one's life when they have no say is murder. How can you withdraw an innocent child's life? A failed abortion can result to a severely handicapped child. How can you attempt to damage a child for life causing your child to come out intellectually handicapped? How can you deliberately kill a miniscule baby because you decided to not use a form of birth control? …show more content…
I believe the main people against abortion are the ones who are not physically capable of having a child. Humans all around the world would do anything to have a baby. When you can carry a child and then turn to adoption, why would you not? In our society today, people judge, talk, and point out facts, but that will never change. People try to escape the reality of having a child, and that is why they turn to aborting the fetus. Abortion has never fully developed in my mind. It is difficult for me to even view why someone would want to abort a child, but I have never been in that position so it is hard to judge. I say I know I would never abort a child, but do I really know. Everyone worries about how people will look at them. If a young woman was sexually active and became pregnant how many people would she catch staring at her, giving her weird looks, pointing at her, and much more? I do believe that is a big reason why abortion takes place.
Abortion takes place in all ages. 51% of abortions are performed on women less than 25 years of age. Approximately 1/3 of American women have had an abortion by age 45. ("Abortion Facts", 2013). So many abortions take place, people would not believe it. That is a lot of women. If you are in a room with 9 people statistics show that 3 of the women in that room have committed abortion. That is outright crazy. When it comes to a topic like this, you should not be closed

    Why Abortion is Not Impermissible The legal status of abortion is regarded as one of the most long disputed and controversial ethical issues in the world of politics, presumably because of the moral dilemmas that it is thought to present. Many of those who oppose of the right to abort may do so from a theistic standpoint, which leads to more debates regarding the separation between church and state.

    Abortion has been around since ancient times. It's an endlessly debatable subject and everybody has their own opinion. I feel that whatever your beliefs every woman should have the right to abortion. I believe that the child doesn't actually become a person with rights until they are affected by the world. Meaning that they don't become a person until they come out of their mother and experience the world for the first time. The question of when does a fetus become a child is very important in this…

    The argument against abortion is subject to personal interpretation and it should not be legislated against. Illegal abortion is also rife with discrimination. The fourteenth amendment prohibits states from violating an individual's rights of due process and equal protection.. The first, fourth, ninth, and fourteenth amendments explain that each citizen has an individual right to privacy against state laws (Kelly par. 4). Abortion should not be prohibited in the United States because the…

    Abortion has been a dominant discussion in modern and ancient time. Somehow, we never hear the end of it. An abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy. Abortion in the United States should be legal up until 24 weeks if the woman was raped or her life is in danger. If the woman does not meet these criteria, she should have 12 weeks to contemplate abortion because this is the woman's right and the government should not block this practice. Opponents who identify themselves as pro-life…

    Abortion is the removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus in order to end a pregnancy. I think abortion is wrong and I am against it because having an abortion is killing a human. Abortions can not only cause many health problems for the mother during the abortion, but in the future too. Having an abortion is not the right choice and is very harmful. Is it okay to kill a human? No, it is not. If you kill a human, it is considered a crime, as well as a sin, and you will go to jail. If we are…

    — President Bush on Thursday signed into law a bill that would make it a separate crime to kill or harm an unborn child during an assault on the mother. "As of today, the law of our nation will acknowledge the plain fact that crimes of violence against a pregnant woman often have two victims," Bush said before the signing of the measure. "The death of an innocent unborn child has too often been treated as a detail in one crime but not a crime in itself," the president said. The Unborn Victims…
