“Surprise! You’re having twins!” For some people, this would be exciting news. However there are factors in people’s lives like old age, finance issues, and unplanned pregnancies In our opinion, people need to worry about their own life and not worry about the outsiders who don’t understand their mindset about having kids. People who are against abortion should have empathy for the people who choose to have an abortion because it’s a hard and emotional process for them. No one loves having abortions. There will always be the guilt of having one of the twins and not the other, no matter what. It’s in our nature. Choosing to have an abortion is a personal decision, not a murderous crime. Do people feel guilty when they refuse to donate their organs? If people have the, “right to life,” do people think about the mother’s life? Do people worry about HER health and life? Giving birth alone is a risk taker. Jenny put her own life at risk just by getting pregnant.
People argue that women should take responsibility for having unprotected sex and that women know they are risking their chances of getting pregnant just by doing so. Yes, teenage girls and women should be more responsible about their sex life, but if they know they can’t provide for their child and give them the life they deserve, why make the kid suffer? Rather than arguing over the life of a child, most people choose to argue about women taking responsibility for their actions. There is no method of protected sex that works 100% of the time, but abstinence. So if a women has sex, protected or unprotected, they instantly obtain the obligation of having a child? Instead of bashing abortion/reduction, you are bashing the woman’s behavior.
A popular pro-choice case is the Roe vs Wade. Roe, a single pregnant woman, tested the law that prohibited abortion unless it was to save the mother’s life. According to the Pro-Choice America Foundation, there was a law made that gave women the right to decide whether they would keep the baby or not.”The court held that the fundamental right to privacy extends to a woman’s decision whether or not to have an abortion and that any governmental interference with that right is subject to strict judicial scrutiny.” If the fetus is able to live outside the uterus (viability), the government can protect the life of the fetus.
The risk of death from childbirth is 10x higher than the risk of death from having an abortion. No women should feel like they don’t have a choice. Isn’t America a free country?
