Argumentative Essay About Abortions
A woman's right to choose abortion is a "fundamental right"12. Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy (fetus), not a baby.Personhood at conception is not a proven biological fact.Making abortion illegal will increase teenage pregnancy (children having children).This usually leads to illegal abortions which can lead to death or permanent health defects, poverty, joblessness, hopelessness, and dependency.11.This parallels to pregnancies because a fetus does need these resources, but the mother is not legally obligated to keep giving this baby her resources.Denying to give someone a body part is not illegal, so terminating a pregnancy should not be illegal26. Legal abortion not only protects women's lives, it also protects their health.
