An unborn child doesn’t have a soul. A sixteen-year-old walks down a nameless back alley on the mainland, one of only a million others, and she carries with her an unborn child of 4 months.
She had tried to hide it but the signs were finally showing, “Who was the father” were the cries and pleas of those whom she loved. She was raped a year ago by her ex-boyfriend and now carries their unwanted child. Should she be forced to carry and care for the child she hadn’t planned for? Should she be forced to love a child who will for her every waking moment remind her of the night her rights were stripped from her? Should she not have the choice to safely abort her unwanted child instead of resorting to a back alley where she may endanger her own life? Sadly this kind of a story was a reality for thousands of teen’s worldwide, but not only teens suffer from this fate. Women of all kinds have to suffer the choices and consequences that they must make, but should they not have a choice to abort their unwanted children instead of resorting to the back alley scenes of coat hangers and illegitimate drugs?Many will argue firstly that it is against religion and faith to kill a child, to destroy a soul, especially one so pure as an unborn baby’s.Order now
See thou that’s just the thing. It’s an UNborn baby a. k. a. not a human a.k. a. it doesn’t HAVE a soul! So you wouldn’t be killing anything, just a fetus that has in it the potential to become a human being, the potential to become a living being. But that’s all it is, potential. It’s like trying to argue that liposuction should be illegal because your are killing fat that has the potential to grow parasites and bacteria.
Another topic that I feel needs to be discussed is unwanted pregnancies. Not in the sense where oops the condom slipped or ooh I thought pulling outworked. Because honestly those people should in my opinion be held responsible for their actions. What I am talking about is rapes and mothers who would die if they were to conceive a child because of birth complications. Should they be outlawed from safe abortions? And if not then how would you write a law that would support only them?
I’m sure you will agree that there are certain people who should be eligible candidates for abortions but there is no solid way to filter those telling the truth from those who are just fibbing so staying legal for now seems to be the only thing to do right? Lastly, I want to discuss the things that could happen and have happened if my first two arguments were not powerful enough to convince you to keep it legal. The national center for health statistics show that before 1941 there were more than 1,400 abortion-related deaths per year because abortion was banned and named illegal in all states.
So you must take into account now, if abortion is named illegal will it really stop anyone? Or will you just find yourself jeopardizing the lives of 1,400 women every year? Could you live with yourself knowing that the choices you make will affect 1,400 people a year? Never mind the baby’s potential, you must think of the wife’s potential what could she have become? A nurse? A teacher? So why then can you say that its immoral to ruin the future of a child, But completely ethical to kill the mother instead?
