  • Partial Birth Abortion - 1,423 words
    Ethical Issues involved in Floridas Partial-birth abortion also known, as D & E for dilation and extraction was first used and developed by Dr. James McMahon, who performed the procedure well into the last trimester of pregnancy. These women discovered late in their pregnancies that they were carrying babies that could not survive outside their wombs. They decided to do what was best in their particular medical situation. The procedure (D & E) consists of the surgeon aiming for a breech delivery of the fetus, pulling it down by its extremities through the vagina until its head just lodges at the cervical, the surgeon then proceeds to take a pair of blunt curved Metzenbaum scissors and places ...

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 ...

    The value of life cannot be questioned. Just as a murderer will pay for his crimes, so will anyone who kills another without just cause be punished by god and society. But, this issue of abortion extends far beyond the taking of life. Abortion requires consideration of what is just and does a pregnant woman have the right to decide. There are many varying views on this issue, but generally speaking, the Christian doctrine determines that the sanctity of life must be preserved at all levels, so the questions we must ask are; At what point is a life begun, and can it be ethically justified to abort in controversial circumstances. Let us examine what is actually happening when abortion occurs. ...

    Abortion is pro choice and women all over the United States are struggling and coping to make the critical decision. The genesis of a new human life begins when the egg with 23 chromosomes joins with a sperm with 23 chromosomes and creates a fertilized cell, called a zygote, with 46 chromosomes. The single cell zygote contains the entire DNA necessary to grow into an independent, conscious human being. But being alive does not give the zygote full human rights- including the right not to be aborted during its gestation. A single-cell ameba also coverts nutrients and oxygen into biological energy that causes its cells to divide, multiply, and grow. It shares everything in common with a human ...

  • Parents Should Not Be Informed That Their Teen Is Requesting Abortion - 442 words
    I feel that parents should not be informed that their teen is requesting an abortion because it will lead to more teenagers giving birth to unwanted children, unsafe and illegal abortions, infant abandonment, and even worse, infant murder. Within the past few years, infant killing by teenagers is on the rise. In one case, a teen hid her pregnancy and nine months later gave birth to the baby boy in the family basement. Afterward she placed the infant in a garbage bag, leaving him for dead. Admittingly, most teens will not resort to such drastic measures. However, the teen admitted that she was afraid to tell her mother because she claimed her mother told her after her first abortion the year ...

    During the past century, abortion has joined race and war as one of the most debatable subjects of controversy in the United States. The issue of abortion causes discussions about human interactions where ethics, emotions and law come together. There are many reasons why women decide to have abortions. Some women have abortions because of health complications, some have marital problems, and some lack responsibility. Whatever the reasons a woman decides to have an abortion, it seems only justified that she should be able to make decisions in regards to her life and body. The decisions that she makes in regards to what she does with her body and the fetus will be beneficial to both the woman ...

    Many people believe abortion is a moral issue, but it is also a constitutional issue. It is a woman's right to choose what she does with her body, and it should not be altered or influenced by anyone else. This right is guaranteed by the ninth amendment, which contains the right to privacy. The ninth amendment states: "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." This right guarantees the right to women, if they so choose, to have an abortion, up to the end of the first trimester. Regardless of the fact of morals, a woman has the right to privacy and choice to abort her fetus. The people that hold a "pro-l ...

This was taught in the oldest Christian document known, written in 70CE, it read: "You shall not kill by abortion the fruit of the womb and you shall not murder the infant What it says, is simply that abortion is as wrong as the killing of a child (infanticide). But St. Augustine (1st century) had declared that the soul was planted in the foetus, by God, on day 46. Thomas Aquinas (13th century) preached that the souls of humans were planted, by God, at day 90 for girls and day 40 for boys. Therefore Catholics had believed that, as long as abortion was carried out before the soul was present in the foetus, it was not morally wrong. Now in the present day Catholics believe abortion ...

  • Abortion Worst Medical Invention - 758 words
    Abortion is the deliberate termination of pregnancy by removal of the fetus from the womb. Under the topic of abortion there are two clear sides - pro or for. Personally I am 100% pro, because in my eyes abortion is the same as murder. Murder is defined as, The taking of someone or somethings life. So if you dont see it like that then how would you define abortion. Currently abortion is performed by any one of four standard procedures, according to the period of gestation. The procedure that I will explain is called, suction, or vacuum aspiration. This method is used in the first trimester (up to 12 weeks). In this procedure, which normally takes five to ten minutes, on an outpatient basis, ...

    This topic has always been a concern between the people and the government. There are approximately 1.6 million abortions. Abortion means Induced termination of pregnancy and expulsion of an embryo or fetus that is incapable of survival. I think that basically, people can do whatever they want to do, as long as they know what they are doing. What abortion is, is that if a woman has a baby in her stomach, and she does not want to have the baby, she can go through abortion or have the baby and put the baby for adoption. The main reason for aborting a baby is because that they can not handle the responsibility, another one is because they can not afford it. There are three stages in a womans pr ...

  • 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 ...

  • The History Of Abortion - 500 words
    In the United States, abortion laws began to appear in the 1820s, which forbid abortion after the fourth month of pregnancy. Through the efforts of mostly physicians and doctors, the American Medical Association, and legislators, most abortions were outlawed by 1900. Illegal abortions still frequently occurred, though they became less frequent while the Comstock Law came into effect, which essentially banned all birth control information and devices. By 1965, all fifty states banned abortion, with some exceptions such as the following: to save the life of the mother, in cases of rape and incest, or if the fetus was deformed. Then, groups like the National Abortion Rights Action League and th ...

    Abortion", the very sound of the word conjures up horrible images and is, in fact, a very controversial and emotional issue. Abortion has been going on all over the world for centuries. In the dictionary, the word abortion means, "A premature birth occurring before the fetus can survive." In other words, an abortion is when the fetus is "killed" and then removed from the womb. Abortions are not very safe and could cause serious emotional and health problems. The endless oppositions usually go nowhere, leaving the opponents even more committed to their stance. There are two opposing sides dealing with abortion, Pro-Life and Pro-Choice. People who are in the Pro-Life group believe that a woman ...
