Hello, and I am back with another 'For Or Against'.
The topic being: ABORTION.
Abortion, for those who do not know, means basically to stop and rid of a pregnancy/birth of a child.
A summary of the history of abortion is that pretty much, abortion dates, from Wikipedia, "can be traced back to civilizations as varied as China under Shennong (c. 2700 BCE), Ancient Egypt with its Ebers Papyrus (c. 1550 BCE), and the Roman Empire in the time of Juvenal (c. 200 CE)". So its been around for a LONG time. But over its long history, its been debated between whether or not its 'ethical' or 'okay' to perform between scientists and doctors. And even though advances in technique advanced over the 1700's, the people deemed it something not to tech, so the spread of safe way to perform it were few.
But not until the mid-19th century, abortion was okay to practice, but later banned in both the UK and the US. And later, the US was the first country to ban all forms of it due to the fact it was claimed, in the 1930s, that it was more dangerous than childbirth.But in the 1960s-70s, abortion grew in demand, due to various mass factors. And over time, has been more permitted and used in many countries of the world today legally, including America.
International status of abortion law:Legal on request, though various countries have different time limitsIllegal with exception for rape, maternal life, health, mental health, fetal defects, and/or socioeconomic factorsIllegal with exception for rape, maternal life, health, mental health, and/or fetal defectsIllegal with exception for rape, maternal life, and in some countries physical and/or mental healthIllegal with exception for maternal life, and in some countries mental and/or physical healthIllegal with no exceptionsVaries by regionNo information
The procedure, I will not explain in detail, but imagine this, think of an empty bottle, and in it, there is a little teddy bear that grew everyday inside of it.
And then lets say the person who owned the bottle wanted to get rid of the growing teddy due to whatever. Well then they go to a doctor and open the bottle a little in the opening and then, depending on how far along the teddy bear had grew, if he is an itty bitty bear, he will be vacuumed out, while if he is more developed bear, he has a.. I'll call it a large needle, that goes through the crown of his head and he is pulled out of the bottle from it. And the bottle is awake during all of it most likely. And that the owner of the bottle can wait up until the birth of the bear to get rid of it. And if it is after 24 weeks, then the 'teddy bear' can in fact feel the pain from the procedure.
The reasons people do it vary really, examples include:
- They think that they can not provide for the future child.
- Their family/mother does not want them.
- They are a teen who isn't ready or want children.
- They aren't allowed to birth a child/their body can't. (most times, mandatory)
- Failed pregnancy. (mandatory)
- Rape victim.

While most people who are against are against it due to the fact that either they are for life or from religious/ethical reasons. The main issue people have with it that it IS either ending the life of or preventing the life of a baby from being born. While religious reasons are because of it not being permitted in the person's religion to rid of pregnancy. And studies have shown that abortion can cause depression, psychological issues, the natural pain of a mother losing her child since its a fact that the longer a woman is pregnant, the more she bonds with her unborn baby. And there are tons of cases where women regret doing it in the first place.
---The fight for and against it has been a raging battle over many many years. To kill an unborn child, or to suffer an ongoing pregnancy?
So tell me, are you FOR or AGAINST abortion?
Why or why not?
P.S. I am not trying to be a bitch, but I believe if you choose Life BUT say 'but if they were raped, it is okay' then I do NOT believe you are pro-life, it is you being a hypocrite.
