Abortion

Making the Decision!

Should a Woman have an Abortion?

To be honest I think that a woman should not be able to have an abortion. I think she should not be able to have one because of three obvious reasons. First, having an abortion is a sin. Next, most of the time the woman is at fault for getting herself pregnant. Lastly, abortion is unsafe.

What is an Abortion?

Abortion is the purposeful discontinuing of a human pregnancy. The specialist will perform the process during the first 28 weeks of a pregnancy.

Having an Abortion is considered a sin!

It is considered a sin because God created a life for each living thing. Killing that one life would ruin all of God's plans. Ask almost any church and they will say that abortion is considered nothing but murder. Many people also consider abortion to be a sin because it brings people feelings of shame and regret. Having an abortion can also mean in religious terms that the individual has lost faith! So in all abortion does match the definition of a sin because people are killing unborn babies.

What are the Laws Regarding an Abortion?

Many States Offer Certain Laws that a Woman should get follow

Those laws include:

  • Counseling

  • Waiting Periods

Doctors want women to wait before getting the actual abortion because they want them to think.

  • Doctor and Hospital Requirements

The procedure may only be done by a specialist

  • Gestational Limits

The woman may only have an abortion for a certain time period

  • Parental Involvement

  • Public Funding

  • Private Insurance Coverage

Most of the Time the Woman is at Fault for Getting Pregnant!

Having an unwanted pregnancy really revolves around responsibility. The women is the one who knows that she can become pregnant so she has to be more careful about actions made. Yes it takes two people to make a baby but it only takes one to have a baby. So the women who is having the baby has to be more protective and aware of herself. Think about it. If a woman becomes pregnant on accident and then decides to have an abortion a whole lot of bad things can occur. The woman who wants to have an abortion should realize how she just killed a innocent baby. This is all put on her now! In the end everyone sees how having an unwanted baby on accident is the woman's fault.

Why do Women have Abortions?


There are many reasons why women do have abortions.

These reasons could be turned around if a woman decides to not have an abortion. The woman could find ways to deal with these negative tasks. Or if necessary the woman could always give the baby up for adoption in a safe way.

Some of the reasons are:

  • Having a baby would interfere with their job/employment/career

  • Could not afford a baby or child care

  • Didn't want people to know that they got pregnant

  • Cited unemployment as a reason for having an abortion

  • Could not leave their job to take care of a baby

  • Unsure of their relationship

  • A husband or partner wanted them to have an abortion

  • Cited physical problems with their health

  • A relationship or marriage may break up soon

Abortion is Unsafe!

Abortion is unsafe no matter which way you go with it. The medical and correct way of doing it can even cause harm to a woman. The pill and aspiration process eventually can damage a woman's reproductive system. Then on the other hand if a woman cannot afford to get the medical procedures done then she may perform her own abortion on herself. For example a woman may swallow a harmful substance to kill the unborn baby. In conclusion everyone sees the basic point! Getting an abortion is very risky and scary! Plus studies have shown that lots of women have died from having an abortion.

How is a Abortion Done?


A woman can follow through with an abortion in two different ways:


  • The first way is a pill called: The Abortion Pill

The abortion pill is a type of medicine that ends an already early pregnancy. This pill is known to be very effective. People use the pill because they say it is more convenient and private for them.


  • The second way is called: Vacuum Aspiration

The Vacuum Aspiration is a procedure done by a specialist. The specialist will conduct the process through the cervix using special tools.


There are probably more ways to get an abortion done. These are just the basics and most common type.

A Woman Should not Choose to Have an Abortion!

To sum it up I believe that women should not be able to have an abortion. I do believe that because an abortion is a sin, the woman is at fault for becoming pregnant, and abortion is considered unsafe. I know that my decision is the right one because everyone deserves the right to live. So like animals we need to speak up for the unborn children! You will know what I mean when you see the smile on a newborns's face! :)
