Is Abortion Wrong Or Right? Essay, Research Paper
Abortion, in my opinion, is wrong, but, as it is obvious, it is not wrong in to other people. To make this fair, I have gotten a few people to make a statement about whether they were pro-life, or pro-choice and why.
“Pro-choice. As a man, I don’t believe that it is my choice to make as to whether a woman decides to keep her child or not. I do not believe that it is my place to pass judgement on all of womanhood when it comes to having an abortion or not. If the circumstances were different, say if the child was mine, then I believe that I have a say, but not for women that I have never, nor will ever meet.” Jeff, 20, S.C.
“Pro-choice, because women have the choice no matter what. That doesn’t mean I’m for abortion though either, just the right to choose.” Adrian, 18, Pennsylvania
“I’m both. If someone gets raped and doesn’t want to have a baby, and it’s not their fault that it happened, they should be able to have an abortion because they should be free to live their life. but if someone knew about what would happen if they had sex and they weren’t careful, and got pregnant, then they should deal with the consiquences.” Lauren, 13, New York.
“Pro-life.I think that abortion is morally wrong and it is scientifically proven that the baby is its own person with its own DNA and fingerprints. No one has the right to take a life but Christ. The baby is not part of the mothers body-she can’t kill it;it is murder.” Drea, 17, Texas.
“When asked whether to choose sides on the issue of abortion, I am faced with an unusual quandry. In Michigan, only women have bearing on the baby/fetus while it is still in the womb. All paternal rights come after birth, not after conception. So if a man wants an aborition, but the woman doesn’t, the baby is kept. But the converse occurs also; if a man wishes to keep it but the woman doesn’t, the fetus is aborted. In my eyes men’s paternal rights are beign trampled on because half of that baby/fetus’ makeup is from the sperm. I dont side with either and in my eyes, all men should do the same in order to get a voice in raising our families.” Matt, 20, Michigan.
Abortion is one of the hardest subjects to argue about. A woman should have a right to choose whether she wants a baby or not, but she should not kill that baby. As Drea said, the unborn child is alive, has it’s own fingerprints and DNA. It’s murder, it is killing a innocent child, yet abortion is still legal. So whether you are the father, or the mother of this unborn child, think twice before you abort it.
