Abortion: It's Your Choice

Although rape is a horrible part of life, caring a child with sever deformities or fatal diseases can be a far worse tragedy to go through. Many women conceive children with deformities or find out that their child is a victim of a terrible disease every day. It should be their choice to keep the child or to terminate the pregnancy. Having a child with a deformity is a lot of work that some people just aren’t ready for or wouldn’t be able to handle. It would be worse for them to actually keep the child and not be able to care for it the right way as opposed to terminating the pregnancy while the fetus is still mostly undeveloped. Or what if the child has a horrible fatal disease and won’t live more then a few weeks or even months. Why should the parents have to go through all of that heartbreak and pain, become attached to their child, and then lose him/her in such a short period of time? Andrea Peyser’s editorial in the New York Post describes a horrifying story of abortion of a woman named Ilene Jaroslaw. Mrs. Jaroslaw received a routine sonogram in her 17th week of pregnancy which showed that her unborn child had one hundred percent fatal brain abnormality “Half of them die before birth... of the other half that survive, they live a few hours or weeks, maybe months… After the horrific news, Ilene learned that her only chance to have another baby - and spare her kids the agony of a birth followed by a funeral – was to have an abortion. (1)” Sometimes the only way to make life better is to have an abortion and save the family from having to go through a birth and death in a matter of weeks.
Abortions are sometimes needed when there is a deformity with the child; however, they are also needed if the mother’s health is jeopardized. Some women discover late in their pregnancy that there is a fatal problem with their child, which will View More »

    Is Abortion Immoral? Question 1: Imagine two philosophers sitting on a bench at the county morgue. They are looking at the bodies being brought in and three in particular interest them.

Abortion is an operation to end a pregnancy by removing an embryo or fetus from the womb. There

    Abandoning Abortion ` It is amazing to hear the continuous debates that arise on the issue of abortion. Positions are taken on ‘what conditions possibly make abortion fair?’, and at ‘what point is a fetus really a human being?, etc. For me the answer to all these questions is not complex. The issue pretty much is straightforward. If you interrupt the course of a life you have killed. If you intervene to stop the existence of a living thing you have killed it. Whether ‘day after’ or ‘weeks after’, if a course of life has begun, to cut that destiny off is to commit an injustice toward

    As the theorist Michel Foucault examines history to explore the layers of structure of power, I find the history of wedding tradition to be fascinating. “He uses history to dispel the sort of routine, instituted self-assurance people have about reality of such entities as the mental disorders they fear they may be suffering from, or the inner sexual needs they believe they have to release. Foucault has examined various kinds of systems of thought through which people have come to identify themselves as subjects.”(Rajchman) And then another good quote about Michel Foucault is “For more than a d
