Abortion English Coursework Persuasive Piece

Extracts from this document...


Abortion Women, the majority of the time, can choose to have sex. They can also choose to have safe sex or unprotected sex and they can choose to get pregnant, habitually called 'planned pregnancies'. Having the ability to make decisions, it only makes sense for women to have the right to end an unwanted pregnancy. If they can decide from who they have sex with to what type of protection they want to use, why can't they decide not to keep a fetus? Abortion is an option. For thousands of years, abortions have been practiced in every society and in the United States it was legal since the arrival of the pilgrims to Plymouth rock. In 1829, the US began a ban on abortions and would arrest providers and even the mother seeking the procedure. From the 1900's to 1960's abortions were prohibited by law.

Well, in some cases, women do not even want to be pregnant. This creates tension and negative feelings towards the fetus. It is scientifically proven that the fetus does feel the same things as the mother.

Therefore, if the pregnancy is really an unwanted one, the mother should have the right to be able to end the pregnancy for the well being of herself and the fetus. An abortion is not a sin since the Bible does not specifically forbid or condemn abortion. In two occasions the Bible associates life with breathing; And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.- Genesis 2:7 ; The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life. ...read more.


An organization called Save the Children said that each year 13 million children are born to women under the age of twenty more than 90% in developing countries. The countries with the highest teenage pregnancy rates are in sub-Saharan Africa. For the exception of the U.S. who has the highest rate when compared to other countries of its status and economic resources, stated by Teen Pregancy.org. In the U.S. there is even a TV show that is centered around a girl who becomes pregnant at the age of fifteen and is called The Secret Life of the American Teenager. In conclusion I believe that abortion should be considered an option and made legal around the world in order to increase the quality of life, decrease the number of homeless children, child abuse rates, and have a control over the human population. It is a choice a woman should always be allowed to make and nobody, religion or politician should be able to neither judge her nor choose for her. ...read more.
