Let’s suppose for just one minute that there is an expecting mother. The baby that is growing inside of her is almost five months along. She willingly participated in the act of making this almost developed baby , yet you decide for whatever reason she does not want to bring this child into the world so what does she do ? keep the baby ? adoption ? or murder it by all means of a partial-birth abortion ? Reasons partial birth abortions are performed are primarily because of poor physical/mental conditions that are a risk to mother or child , inability to care for child or simply a last minute decision to terminate an unwanted pregnancy.
A women’s decison to terminate a pregnancy is a very private and personal one but in the world today this matter has not only been brought about to the public but to the political party. The actual term “partial birth abortion” is actually the political term for intact dilation and extraction which is the proper medical name for it.
Late term abortion , also referred to as “partial birth” has been a flashpoint within an already fierce abortion debate that has been going on since the passage of the Roe vs. Wade jury case in 1973. The Partial-birth Abortion ban of 1833 prohibits the mother from abortion after 16 weeks of pregnancy . unless in rare cases the pregnancy causes harm to mother or child. But the Roe vs. Wade cause gave women the God given right to do what they please when it comes to motherhood. Reaction to the decision of giving women the right to terminate an almost full term child has been an emotional uproar throughout the years. Even while understanding exactly what the ban means. A womens right to choose abortion is a fundamental right recognized by the supreme court. The uproar grew so strong illegal activities by pro life advocates increased dramatically with the passage of the partial birth ban using threats of murder and violence against doctors and their patients. Feminine activist groups such as the “F.M.F” worked with Planned Parenthood to find a middle ground between the two sides. They opened the door for states to make their own decisions against abortion overall and agreed to come to an conclusion states were to make their own laws on abortion.
Reasons for abortion
Women who have abortions especially late term abortions are often frowned upon. But many are unable to support or care for a child.Birth control failure , inability to care for a child and pregnancy from rape are just a few reasons women get abortions. But in unfortunate medical cases medical conditions may develop after the first trimester of pregnancy that could threaten the life of mother or child. late occurring conditions include : heart failure , uncontrollable diabetes ,serious renal disease and severe depression are a few.
These are legit reasons partial birth abortions are performed but there are the ignorant few who have a last minute decision deciding...
