Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy, known to some as murdering
the foetus. There are many theories of the foetus being starved of
oxygen or the womb being filled up with toxic gases, crushed up and
extracted from the womb. This is all very well but remember that the
foetus will not be older than 24 weeks and so cannot feel pain. If the
foetus was brought in to the world unwanted, unloved and entering into
a life of torture, is this not where the pain comes into it? is it not
better that the child had passed away painlessly as an embryo in the
mothers womb, rather than living a life if torture. well abortion
isn't the only answer here. Adoption is a process that has proven to
be successful in the past so why not now. True it means that the
mother will have to carry the pregnancy to full term but is that not a
better option rather than killing the unborn child.
Of course, not all abortions take place due to the welfare of the
child's life when it leaves the mothers womb. Having the pregnancy
terminated for a trivial thing such as gender is not a valid reason.
But sometimes there are very valid points in which an abortion should
take place. If your thinking that there are no valid points then
imagine a 15yr old girl. She has been raped and as a result she is
pregnant. Carrying the child to full term can affect the girl's
education and life. This pregnancy could be damaging to her, having to
be reminded constantly over the next 9 months of her life, what
happened to her. Depression or even attempted suicide may occur.
However it is up to the individual to decide. In this scenario I
believe that the girl should have the right to decide what she will do
however for other scenarios I believe the father should have some role
in the decision.
Currently the father has no right to the unborn child at all, even
though conception could not have occurred without him. This I believe
to be unfair, why shouldn't the father have rights after all it his
child too. However it is the mother's body and it is she who must care
for the unborn child until birth. So it is she who has the rights. The
unborn child should have rights; after all it is their life that is
being decided for them. Would you like it if your parent(s) were to
decide if you were to be terminated or go on to experience life in the
real world? No I didn't think so, this can be related to Hitler and
the concentration camps. He authorised the termination of thousands
possibly millions of people because they did not fit with his plans.
Having an abortion because of the gender of the child is simply a
toned down version of this.
In some countries, like Russia and China there is an absence of family
planning. Abortion is used as a form of contraception and birth
control. The average woman in Russia has 4 or 5 abortions in...
