Walking into an abortion clinic can be scary and nerve racking. Abortion has been declared as having adverse effects on a woman’s psyche. Though nobody seems to focus on any of the positives, abortion is a life changing event in any woman’s life. When handled correctly not only are the effects positive, but can improve the view someone has on life. Every mind is different, there is not one pair of people that think and feel the same way. So categorizing abortion only as a negative is incorrect, because how can one fully understand how someone feels? One can not . Anne Speckhard did a study of 30 women volunteers, during this study there was little evidence showing severe psychological damage. Media has misguided society in believing that an abortion can lead to a devastating state of mind. In reality, abortion leads to a state of maturity, self- admiration, and well-being.
First maturity is measured in a variety of ways, knowing the difference between right and wrong is common. The line between right and wrong is a relative statement. Who decides what is right and what is wrong? The person making the decision decides, no one can tell another person what is right and what is wrong. When a person is faced with a life crisis the outcomes can vary, an abortion deals with a life crisis. A woman getting an abortion is a way of coping with a life crisis. After it is done they feel a sense of relief, a huge weight has been lifted from their shoulders.
There are not any feelings of regret because the woman has helped herself; she is dealing with a life crisis that without dealing with can affect her life immensely.
Additionally a characteristic of maturity is being able to detach oneself from the situation and imagine themselves in different perspectives. Detachment is the highest form of maturity, taking a step back and being able to see things with a fresh mind. Being able to make a decision with a rational reaction versus an emotional reaction is taking their whole life into account and not focusing on just the now, but the rest of their life. When someone can look at their life in a timeline before making a decision they have achieved maturity in the most important aspect. This helps make a judgment that will help their life, not worrying about what others believe is “right” but concentrating on the path they want their life to go.
Also some women cannot achieve the life they want if they were to have a child. They might not be financially stable at the moment to have a baby. This can lead to severe stress and anxiety affecting the woman’s life greatly. Others simply cannot have a child due to a physical problem, their hearts can be too weak and delivery of the baby would lead to death. Just because a woman gets an abortion now, does not mean they won’t have kids later in life. Planned Parenthood states that 70 percent of women who get an abortion have children later in life.
Second self-admiration is hard to...
