Partial Birth Abortion - 1,387 words
... ho feel they are unable to raise the child. On the other side you have the pro-choice viewpoint, they believe that women have the right and freedom to decide whether and when to have children; they argue that pregnancy can result from contraceptive failure or other factors out of a womans control. When pregnancy does occur pro-choice individuals believe that the most moral decision possible must be determined according to each situation, and that in some cases greater injustice would result if abortion were not an option. If legal abortions were not available, some pro-choice supporters say, back-alley shops and do-it-yourself techniques, with their many health risks, as well as the birt ...

Teen Abortion - 1,589 words
1 Research Paper ENG 232/Dr. Powers 27 Mar 99 It is ironic that, while a teenage girl must obtain parental consent for such a minor procedure as having her ears pierced, for her to lay her life on the line (as well as that of her unborn child) and obtain an abortion, no parental notification is required. If a teenager, because of her immaturity and inexperience in decision-making, may not enroll herself in the school of her choice without her parents signature and consent, how can she be expected to independently come to a decision regarding such a serious issue as whether to obtain an abortion? It is also strikingly ironic that the same parents who would be required by law to provide extend ...

Griswold V Connecticut - 1,356 words
On June 7, 1965, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Griswold v. Connecticut, struck down state laws that had made the use of birth control by married couples illegal. The court's landmark decision - coming five years after oral contraceptives became available to American women and 49 years after Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the U.S. - legalized the use of birth control and paved the way for the nearly unanimous acceptance of contraception that now exists in this country. The court's recognition of individuals' right to privacy in deciding when and whether to have a child in Griswold became the basis for later reproductive rights decisions. In Eisenstadt v. Baird (1972), t ...

Abortion: A Freedom Of Choice - 1,785 words
During the last twenty-five years, abortion has been one of the most heated topics being debated in the United States and Canada. The only topics that equal the abortion debate are race and war. Abortion is a discussion of human interaction where ethics, emotions, and law come together. There are people that have different views of abortion but no matter what their view is they fall under a thin line. There is the pro-choice and the pro-life. These are the only two categories that peoples views fall into.

Responses On The Ethics Of Abortion - 1,016 words

Whether it is a moral dilemma, or just simply wrong. Since the beginning of civilization the process of abortion has been practiced, however, by the mid 1800s, many people sought to criminalize the practice. By 1880 abortion had been banned in the United States, by way of protesting via state legislatures.

Women began fleeing to Europe and other foreign areas of the world, where abortion was sti ...
