Abortion

Abortion ABORTION Abortion is the expulsion of a nonviable fetus during the first twelve weeks of gestation. Many people think that abortion is a horrible thing. But if you find out the reasons why most people have abortions then you might change your mind. There is many different ways in order to do an abortion. Depending on the complications you will use different methods to have an abortion.

Two ways to have an abortion are called either a D&X or a hysterotmy. There is also something called an incomplete abortion. One such complication is called a ectopic. One way to have an abortion is by D&X. A D&X is performed with in the first three months of the pregnancy.

They are performed for health reasons most often mental health reasons. The cervix is dialated. The fetus is delivered feet first. Then the surgeon jabs a sharp object into the back of the fetus head, removes it and inserts a vacuum tube through which the brain is extracted. The head of the fetus contracts at this point and allows the fetus to be more easily removed from the womb.

This simplifies the removal of the fetus with less damage to the woman. A bill banning D&X was reintroduced in to the house in early 1997. But the bill easily passed through with a vote 295-136. Another way of abortion is by a hysterotomy. This is a major surgery, essentially identical to a Calsaria Section.

These are usually done in the case of a very young pregnant woman, or a pregnancy which resulted from a rape or incest. If this is not performed right it can lead to serious infection or even death. There is also something called incomplete abortion. This happens when fetal tissue is retained inside the uterus. The tissue can purify causing uterine infection wcich is a very serious situation.

You need to be checked by a doctor and get helped right away. If you don’t you can have serious problems, such as you uterus not returning to its normal size. One complication that leads to having an abortion is called ectopic pregnancy. This is where the fertilized egg becomes stuck in the fallopian tube. This is a life threatening situation.

As the egg continues to grow the tube will rupture and death could be as little as fifteen minutes. There is so many reasons why people should be able to get an abortion. If a womans health or life is endangered. If not having an abortion a child might be born with a serious mental or physical defect. Also if a woman is raped or incest she should have the option to weather she wants an abortion or not.

I know abortion sounds wrong. Killing a baby is not the right thing to do. But sometimes it is if your saving someone elses life. Or think if you had that kid they would not be leading a full life. So I think that women should have the choice of weather they can get an abortion or not. Speech and Communications.

Abortion 3 annon Every year in Canada, over 100 000 murders never reach the courtroom.1 They never reach the courtroom because they are completely legal. Abortion continues to grow across the world, hurting and killing children, as well as their mothers. Abortion is i mmoral, harmful, and actions must be taken to stop it. When a woman aborts, she is not only killing her child but is also harming herself. Legal abortion is the fifth leading cause of maternal death.2 Ten percent of women undergoing abortion suffer immediate complications, and one fifth of those are consid ered life threatening.3 Teenage aborters are at an even higher risk.4 These serious conditions include infection, embolisms, convulsions, hemorrhage, and endotoxic poisoning.5 By having an abortion, a woman doubles her chances of getting breast or cerv ical cancer.

Every consequent abortion increases these chances.6 Physical damage, however, is merely the beginning. Aborted mothers will also suffer many psychological effects as well. These include nightmares, hysterical outbreaks, feelings of immens e guilt, and fear of punishment from God.7 In fact, aborted women visit doctors for psychosocial reasons 180% more than other women.8 Abortion may seem like a quick fix at the time, but there can be many and harsh consequenc! es. Yet even if a mother is willing to accept the consequences, she is taking away a human life. Purely biologically speaking, it is undeniable that a fetus is a human, and an individual.

at the moment of conception, the fetus has a DNA that is different f rom his or her mother. By three weeks, the baby’s heart is pumping its own circulatory system with a blood type different from its mother.9 Doctors measure the end of life by brain death. It is then reasonable to say that the beginning of life should b e at least measured by the beginning of brain life. By six weeks, an unborn baby’s brain waves can be recorded by an electroencephalogram (EEG).10 Between six and seven weeks, the unborn baby will respond to external stimuli, such as touching his or her face.11 While many people believe that a fetus is merely a mass of flesh, and is not nearly as complex as a human, this is completely untrue. By eight weeks, all of the body systems are present, and by eleven weeks, still i! n the first trimester, all of those body systems are functional.12 In fact, the body of an unborn baby is more complex than ours.

He or she has extra parts, such as an amniotic sac, his or her own space bubble, and the umbilical cord, the baby’s lifeli ne, as well as the placenta, the unborn baby’s root system.13 All of these systems developed from the baby’s original cell, not the mother. so when a mother has an abortion, she is killing a living, breathing, heart-pumping, thinking human being. And when that human being is being killed, it is absolute torture. An unborn baby will begin to feel pain as early as eight weeks. At this time, activity in the thalamus, where the pain centre is located, can be read.14 Unborn babies have even been re corded holding their hands over their ears when loud music was played.15 When abortions are carried out, no precautions are taken to prevent the unborn baby from feeling this pain.

There are three main ways that abortions are performed, depending on the age of the unborn baby. If the baby is under thirteen weeks of age, a method known as Suction Curettage is used. First, a suction tube with a knife-like edge is inserted into the womb. Then the baby is literally drawn and quartered as the spine, the l egs, the arms, and all other parts are sliced off and sucked through the tube. Lastly, the head is crushed with forceps, so it too can be sucked up into the tube.16 If the baby is over thirteen weeks of age, the ‘Salting Out! ‘ method is used. A strong, sterile saltwater solution is injected into the amniotic sac.

The baby swallows and breathes this solution, poisoning him or her as well as burning away the upper layers of the skin. Death usually comes in one to two hours f rom salt poisoning, dehydration, hemorrhages of the brain and other organs, as well as convulsions.17 The third method is used if the baby is in its last three months. It involves injecting prostaglandin into the unborn baby. He or she then has a heart attack. Prostaglandin also induces labour, and often the baby is born still alive. If this happens, he or she is generally left to die.18 All of these methods are extremely cruel and excruciatingly painful.

These crimes against humanity must be abolished. Abortion hurts everybody: the child, the mother, and often even the father. If human life itself cannot be valued, then what kind of values can society have? ENDNOTES 1. Alanna Mitchell, Gobe and Mail, September 26, 1996 2. David C.

Abortion
101-36 Persuasive Essay 9/22/96
Abortion, the easiest way to fix one’s mistakes. I mean, if one is
going to screw around and accidentally get knocked up, why should they have to
be responsible for the outcome of messing around. Why not just murder the
unborn child. That is what goes on daily, slaughtering of young, innocent
children, that if born, would easily find a home. What did they the unborn
child do wrong? Oh nothing, it’s just that the mother and/or father are just
so lazy and irresponsible that they would rather see their child be butchered
than have to change it’s diaper or feed it. Society today does not respect
life and therefore accepts the murdering of unborn children.


A major factor that is missing is society in today’s world are moral
values. If people actually had morals, then abortion might not occur. No
matter what anyone argues, abortion is murder, plain and simple. How could one
deny that when a doctor grabs his forceps and crushes a child’s skull and sucks
out what was once a brain, how could they say that is not murder, how could
someone get away with doing this. Then again people ask that same question
about OJ.

There are many abortion-slaughter techniques that are used today.

Examples are the Dilatation and Curettage (D;C) where a loop shaped steel knife
is inserted and the child is cut into pieces, also there is the Dilatation and
Evacuation (D;E) where the doctor uses forceps with sharp metal jaws and tears
the child apart, piece by piece. Usually the head is hardened to bone and must
be compressed or crushed in order to get it out. Another highly controversial
technique that is getting a lot of publicity nowadays is the partial birth
method. This procedure in performed in the second and third trimesters of
pregnancy or between 20 to 32 weeks, sometimes later. Now according to
Abortion: Some medical facts, a book printed by the National Right to Life,
the partial birth technique is performed like this: “Guided by ultrasound, the
abortionist reaches into the uterus, grabs the unborn baby’s leg with forceps,
and pulls the baby into the birth canal, except for the head, which is
deliberately kept just inside the womb. ( At this point in a partial -birth
abortion, the baby is alive.) Then the abortionist jams scissors into the back
of the baby’s skull and spreads the tips of the scissors apart to enlarge the
wound. After removing the scissors, a suction catheter is inserted into the
skull and the baby’s brains are sucked out. The collapsed head is then removed
from the uterus.” Now I don’t see a difference between the partial-birth
method and say me going up to someone and stabbing them over and over again.

The only difference is the outcome, were I would be charged with murder for
committing such a crime , but the “doctors” that perform the 1.5 million
murders a year get paid and some even praised.


Hopefully people will wake up and see that abortion truly is murder.

The opposition usually contests that women have the right to terminate their
pregnancy whenever they want. Now I was taught that one could not have a right
that conflicts with the rights of others, therefore the claim that women have
such a right is irrelevant. Most uninformed people think that the majority of
abortions are performed because the woman’s life is in danger, well that is not
fact. Fact is that 93% of all induced abortions are done for elective,
nonmedical reasons. To make it simple, they are just irresponsible, they are
murders and will have to live with that for the rest of their lives.
