Abortion is the termination of pregnancy by the removing the embryo or fetus, that is incapable of survival outside the body of a woman.
Arguments for and against abortion are many. By looking at both sides and accepting all the different opinions you will get a whole new look on abortion. This is an extremely hot topic and there are thousands of discussions going on. Some are against and some are for. Therefore we need to get both sides out in the open so people can make up their minds and come up with their opinions about this subject. The important thing here is to always keep in mind that people are different and therefore there will be a lot of different opinions about this topic, but if we look at both sides we will get a more realistic view of abortion.
The arguments against abortion are many. Most religions do not allow abortion and therefore they are against it. People who are against abortion are called pro-life believers. They say that it is a human life and no matter what, it is not our right to take a life away. The basic statement of their opinions is that God created this life and we as humans are not entitled to take a life away just because we don’t want it or we cannot provide this child with what it needs. A catholic church came with this statement to show that they are against abortion: The nature and value of a child do not magically change just because he has moved from inside his mother to the outside. Each life is a gift from God. There are also people who are not religious that are against abortion. They also believe that an unborn child is a human and having an abortion is murder. Of course all those who are against abortion know that rape and incest are horrible crimes and should be punished, but they don't believe that a child conceived from the action should be killed. There exist a lot of pro-life organizations and they are working to illegalize abortion.
A lot of people will not agree with the statements above. They are called pro-choice. They believe that the fetus is not a human, just a mass of tissue. Every child should be a wanted child. Aborting unwanted children reduces the number of abused children. They also think that we should keep in mind that we are overpopulating the earth. As a pro-choice you support abortion. The organizations supporting abortion are existing so that abortion must be kept legal, especially for all the rape and incest pregnancies. If abortion is outlawed women will be forced to go to back-alley abortion clinics. Some doctors, who do not support abortions, have made statements that abortion is safer than actual childbirth. The reason for this statement is because only one out of 100,000 dies from abortion but seven out of 100,000 dies from childbirth. The pro-choice main argument is that a woman right’s to control her pregnancy and her body outweighs any right claimed for the unborn baby. Pro choice believers consider abortion a right. Abortion is not a violation of any right, because they think that there is no such thing as the freedom to live in inside of another human being against the will of that person. They believe that the rights of the fetus begin when the baby is born.
One thing they that both pro-choice believers and pro-life believers have in common is that they want more sexual education in schools and want teens to know more about prevention and sexual transmitted diseases. They both believe that by educating teens about this it will make less teen pregnancies and therefore fewer abortions. This is finally one thing they can agree on.
