My Argument about Abortion

What is your opinion on abortion? There are two different types of abortion. One type of abortion is called spontaneous abortion. Spontaneous abortion is accidental, due to natural causes, and is commonly known as a miscarriage. Another type of abortion is deliberate abortion. Deliberate abortion is induced and is further subcategorized into therapeutic abortions and elective abortions. ( People have many different opinions on abortion. There are also many reasons why people have their opinion. Some people have religious views on abortion and others have their own views. There are some people who believe in pro-choice and some believe in pro-life although, there are still many sub categories to it. There are the plain and simple ones that only think it's either right or wrong. Then there are the ones that think that rape, incest, or if the child with have a disorder that it abortion is alright.

Pro-choice is when the person believes that no matter what, a woman has the right to choose whether or not she wants to give birth to the child that she as conceived. Most people who are pro-choice believe that the fetus is not a human but a mass of tissue. ( _or_choice/pro_choice.asp) Lots of times women use abortion as a form or birth control. They get abortions because they had unprotected sex and have gotten pregnant and decided that they weren't ready to be a mother. But, if they believe in pro-choice the women has the right to choose whether or not she is ready to be a mother. They believe that ever child should be a wanted child. ( or_choice/pro_choice.asp) Every child is wanted, the biological mother might not want them, but there are people out there who can not have children and they could want that child. God puts every child into the world for a reason and you will never know the reason unless you let them grow up and liver their life. Just like everyone says you never know your child may be the person to find the cure to cancer or some other disease, you will never know if you have an abortion. Pro-choice also say that they are overpopulating the world. ( or_choice/pro_choice.asp) Just because the world is overpopulated doesn't mean you have to have an abortion. But that is what they believe.

Pro-Life is when a person believes that no matter what abortion is wrong in any aspect. Most religious figures and those who believe strongly in the Bible and God's teachings will fall under this category. "On a 1990 Barbara Walters TV special, Mel Gibson stated his opposition to abortion. He said, "God is the only one who knows how many children we should have, and we should be ready to accept them. One can't decide for oneself who comes into this world and who doesn't. That decision doesn't belong to us." ( I was once given an analogy concerning abortion it said "Having an abortion, is just the same as going up to your 15 year old daughter and stabbing her in the chest." How is that you say because after seventy-two hours the egg and fertilized on the uterus and you are committing murder, if you have an abortion.

Although everyone's opinions about abortion can be grouped into the two main categories, there are also some people that have exceptions to them. There are people who are Pro-Life, but they believe that you should be able to have an abortion if you were raped or if the child is going to die anyway. They believe that if you are in labor and the doctor tells you that if you have to baby you are going to die but if you don't have the baby, the baby will die. So everyone has their own beliefs and exceptions to these beliefs.

Here are some facts about abortion. In the U.S. alone 4,000 abortions are performed every day, 25,000 every week, 109,000 ever month, and 1.3 million every year. ( Since 1973, 40 million children have lost their
