Abortion in America!

Ending aboriton

Editorial on Abortion by: Diana Sanchez

Aborting your child. The termination of pregnancy of a child. How do you feel about it? How do you feel killing your own child? Yeah, it's not a really good feeling is it? Well, have you ever seriously thought about it? It's not a very pleasant subject to talk about. Abortion is a life threatening procedure to you, the mother, and for you to be so cold hearted and just destroy the fetus that you created is sick! I understand as to why some women think it's the correct way to not have a child. If your not going to give the child the opportunity to live their life and experience the world, why put yourself in a position to have a child. Studies show that 22% of teenage girls ranging the ages of 13 to 18 years old consider abortion. Most teenagers are sexually active and do not use the precautions provided for them such as condoms and various types of birth control. Yes, I know us teenagers are young and don't know how to be safe and use the precautions correctly, but I don't really think that putting on a condom is rocket science. It's literally common sence!

Personally, abortion is cruel punishment for a deffenseless child. This subject has both pro's and con's , but in my opinion these are all just ways to be selfish and ways to get out of trouble. In many occasions, teenage girls tend to think of abortion as a plan b to get the stress off of their shoulder's. If these girls really knew how bad they are hurting themselves they would'nt know what to do in any situation. Not letting a small child have the chance to live their life is utterly absurd. Not only do they not have a chance to live but they don't even get a chance to take a breath of the polluted air. Yes, the air might be polluted but these babies have no idea what they would have faced. Either good or bad, those babies would have been more than grateful to have lived.

Have you ever known what it felt like to not want to be apart of this world? Well im pretty sure that that poor child has felt that all along. That child feels everything you feel, he feels when you're upset, happy, angry, stressed, depressed and he has put up with it. So why can't you return the favor by giving them the chance to live, to praise you, to look up to you to have you as their role model. Don't you ever think about those things? Having a child is not only a blessing but it is a person's most prised possession in most occasion. Look, I'm not going to sit here and tell you all the reasons as to why you shouldn't choose this procedure, but I am going to tell you my personal opinion on it. Abortion is a very controversial topic, I just hope that I got the many reasons as to why I am against abortion across and why I feel so strongly about it, Thank You.



"Are you god" by: Hassan Thomas (Editorial)

Abortion should be illegal, are you God? What gives you the right to take a life? You chose the decision to have a sex so now have to deal with the consequences. Also every child should be given a chance to live not be forced to death by their parent.

Life should never be taken from a person especially a child that has a full life to live. What if that child grows up a changes the world in a positive way; so much unfulfilled potential because of abortions. You’re technically a murder, killing a human being that has yet experience the greatness of life.

Therefore, Abortion is basically a bailout for a heartless person. An irresponsible decision leads to a devious act. People may say that everybody is not fig to be a parent but, if you are mature enough to have sex then you should be mature enough to bring a child in this world.

There are other options besides abortion. Options that won’t rob a helpless fetus of its up incoming life full of adventures and obstacles that make life amazing. Birth control and the day after pill are very effective things that will prevent abortions.

Birth control is a preventive measure that prevents the female from getting pregnant. The day after pill is a pill that a female can take to stop her from getting pregnant. It is called the day after pill because it is most effective the day after sex. But they’re some side effects like nausea and vomiting. This is ultimately better than taking a life.

Sometimes people tend to only blame the female for the choice of abortion, but a baby is not made by one person; it is made by two. So we should equally focus on both people in this situation. The male in the situation should have been more responsible by using a condom. But what happen to waiting to have sex, waiting to be pure with your spouse. If sex is in the equation please be safe not only is there an involuntary human life involved but your life and partners life may be at risk also. There are plenty of STD’s (Sexual Transmitted Diseases) out in our world that can harm you. Can we just avoid sex in the first place?

If you are considering abortion think about this, God gave you a beautiful gift of being pregnant eventually having a child but instead of accepting this gift you don’t just it down you take it’s life. God is the only person that has the right to take someones life not you.

What if your parents would’ve aborted you? What if you weren’t given a chance to even breath out of mother’s womb? All the great things that have occurred in your life is irrelevant if your parents would’ve took your life without giving you a chance to live. So don’t you think you should provide a chance for your child to live and maybe do great things with his or her life.
A lot of times the male in the situation is trying to pressure the female to get an abortion because he is not ready for the commitment of a raising a child, but he was ready for the commitment of having sex. For any female going through this right now don’t be pressured to abort your child. Stay strong and raise your child there are many struggles that are associated with being a single mother but it will pay off one when you look back on how you raised a successful child by yourself.

People are scared to take responsibility for their actions, but everything happens for a reason and you should appreciate the blessing of child. Even if you don’t have much to offer try your hardest and your child the best possible life it could have and if not you may want to adopt.

“Adoption is always an option” what many adaption agencies say. If you feel like you are not capable of raising a child you can simply give it to an adoption agency. An adoption agency will look for capable parents that will take in your child and treat them like their own.

What is abortion? Abortion is a procedure that creates many controversial opinions but it also takes away the life of an unborn child. This topic does not only make people sad but actually happy. Not saying that abortion is the best way because personally I do not think it is, it’s actually pretty selfish. Although there are many people who do chose abortion as a result of their actions it doesn’t make them a bad person. It might be a bit disappointing at first but no one obligated you to actually go through with the procedure. This might sound a bit harsh but if you are not capable to care for yourself why you bring a child into this world when you have nothing.

All I am actually saying is that for you to support someone else you must be able to support yourself and be responsible. If you ask me, I would think that you are not responsible because if you didn’t want to have a child you would not be so irresponsible to have unprotected sex in the first place. Yes, I understand there are many different situations regarding abortions such as rape and sexual assault but in most cases it is teenage girls in high school that make simple mistakes. Studies show that teenage girls are leading to choose abortion more frequently than adoption. Honestly, would you like to feel your child’s heartbeat or see it in a jar that the doctor disposes of the fetus with?

I am sure that there are many other women on this earth that try to have children but just cannot reproduce, but here you go killing an innocent child. The least you could do was make yourself a bit useful and give your unwanted child to someone who is willing to go millions of miles for them.

Regarding "Abortion" by: Eduardo Salazar

Dear, Diana Sanchez

Regarding your editorial “Abortion.” Abortion is a very controversial topic that many people avoid talking about so I applaud you and your editorial.

“The poor baby has no fault to what mistake that person might have made. If the person was not aware of the things that they were doing then they should not be doing them, plain and simple” I agree the poor baby doesn’t have any fault for a mistake that the person might have made, if so why should it be forced to live in a situation where no child should be raised. With that being said I think abortion should continue to be legal in certain cases.

“In my opinion, I feel that abortions should be banned just because in these days teenage girls see that there are other types of ways to not have a baby and go forth and have unprotected sex.” Yes that is true cases but there are other cases that should call for an abortion like For example, if a female teenager is raped (God forbid) she should not be forced to have a child that was forced in her, she did not chose to get raped so who are you to make her have this child?

You make a lot of great points that I agree with, but banning abortions would not be solve anything because in some incidents abortions are justified and necessary.

Regarding “Hassan’s Editorial” I agree with him when he says “You chose the decision to have a sex so now have to deal with the consequences.” Because if you are young and didn’t want a child you shouldn’t have had sex, and if you’re married already and just don’t want a child right now, you should have used better protection. You can’t just take the each way out and kill an innocent child. When Hassan says “What gives you the right to take a life?” it might be your body and you don’t want a child in you but are you ready to just kill a person to look pretty? Or to not be called names/be bullied?
“What if that child grows up a changes the world in a positive way; so much unfulfilled potential because of abortions” most likely your child would love you and help you out with your life, if you wouldn’t been a good parent, do you honestly think your child will just leave you to rot in bills? I’m pretty sure your baby would grow up to be successful enough to help you out. I think that even before it grows up to be a man or woman it would help you out as a teen, he or she would clean, get a job just to not put too much pressure on you.
“There are other options besides abortion.” Yup there are, you can try putting it up for adoption if you know you can’t take care of it. It deserves a chance to live in an environment where it’s wanted. Maybe the parents that are taking care of your baby are amazing people who want a baby but can’t because of medical issues? You would be doing the smart thing towards both parties. You can also have an open-adoption, when you are ready to meet your child you can visit during birthdays, graduations, and holidays.
To me “God gave you a beautiful gift of being pregnant eventually having a child but instead of accepting this gift you don’t just it down you take it’s life. “ are strong words to even say to a person, the way Hassan words it is extremely respectful towards the person who wants the abortion. These words are sweet, it makes a person think.
“The day after pill is a pill that a female can take to stop her from getting pregnant.” Would be the smart thing to do if you are a young lady that doesn’t want a child right now. Because you know you aren’t ready to take on more responsibilities but you would like to have sex. Taking the pill would take away the risk of even thinking that you are pregnant. Pro-life is the way to go because you don’t want it in your head that you are killing an innocent person.

The Beauty of Abortion! -__- By: Eduardo Salazar

Satire

As the saying goes no one is perfect, therefore it is logical to say that abortions are morally correct and should be legal. It is very important to understand that a persons life is clearly not up to another person, but up to the mother and only them. America is founded on justice, but since the mother of a child has so much authority we should clearly let those mothers run our court cases and any problem in America, because of course mother knows best. Abortion is a way for “mothers” to adore their children and help them by simply sending them straight to heaven so they can never feel pain. We are a country who stands for justice and life, and we stand for people who are willing to sacrifice our children and our financial security for the sake of the countries economy. Killing a future child is not murder or even killing, because technically the child never became a baby it was only a fetus. Murder is not a bad thing in America sometimes it a very good choice, because it allows women and men to allow abortions and get rid of their responsibilities. Therefore, as we continue in our everyday lives let us look the other way when people murder and allow everyone to get rid of our everyday problems.
