Is Abortion wrong?

Over the past few centries, abortions became very often.  According to the US abortion clock, currently there were over 18 million abortions were ran in the world this year. The reasons of abortions are very complicated. Such as the family of the mother do not want the child to be born because the father of him or her is inopportune to them, the parents have financial problems that they cannot raise the child and so on. However, many people critisize abortion.

To understand why, let me explain how abortion are recognized from christian point of view. At the time of Jesus Christ, abortion, infanticide and child abandonment were legal in the Roman law. Surprisingly, the bible back then did not mension about it since christianity was not that powerful at that time. However, the Catholic Church did not allow abortion to be done because they take it to be the  same thing as murder. On the other hand, Protestants subtly permitted abortion according to the circumstances.

The Catholics’ christianity  describe that the souls dwell in the body straight at the beginning of preganancy so to them, removing a fetus is nothing diiferent to killing a newborn. However, even if they say that aortion is a sin, the protestants say that it is still painful to the mothers. If giving birth cause a sirious medical problems, It will be neccesary to abort if they want to keep the mother alive.

These two Sects believe in different things and they are both but there is no clear answer to the question “Is abortion wrong?” because there are countless number of religious explanation which makes us confused to tell the correct answer. It is not just about abortion. In the world we live in today, what created the universe is believed to be the big bang. However, In the ancient Greek, it was believed that the world was formed by what is called chaos and the birth of Gods and Goddesses. Infact, the world could actually be created in that way. And in the future, humanity may give birth to a new theory different to the big bang. So any facts and opinions are based on people, place, religion and time.

 

Therefore, the question “Is abortion wrong” is complex and simply cannot be answered. But it depends on our thoughts about whether you agree to this question or not.

Emotion-Free Abortion Arguments

Makagutu links to a very interesting article in his post On Abortion, which has numerous examples of anti-abortion women believing there is a moral argument for their own abortion, but not for any other women. It’s an eye-opening piece that reveals the complexities of individual lives, and the difficult decisions that almost all women have to consider at some point in their lives.

Whether because of rape, error, faulty contraception, poverty, physical complications, or simply sexual excitement over-riding logic, there must be few women in the world who haven’t had to ponder what on earth they will do if their next period doesn’t arrive. And whether they believe it’s generally ‘moral’ or not, termination is, and always has been, a main option on the table.

But imagine my surprise when I scrolled through the comments and found my dearest blogging buddy, John Zande, claiming that the argument for abortion could be either straightforward or emotion-free.

Straightforward? If the argument could ever be straightforward, we wouldn’t see endless discussions from every perspective on every aspect of pregnancy termination. When is it okay to terminate a pregnancy? At what point does the life of the baby become a concern that overrules any decision the mother might want to make? Can the sperm-donor man ever have a say? I personally believe it’s the woman’s decision at all times, but that doesn’t make the argument straight-forward.

Emotion-free? Emotion-free? Pregnancy is an intensely emotional time that could never be emotion-free. The prospect of choosing whether to continue to attempt to grow an already developing mini-human that carries half your genes is unlikely to be free of emotion. And the abortion argument clearly cannot be disconnected from the reality of the procedure.

I think when we confront the often unnecessarily emotive and unscientific arguments from the anti-abortion lobby, arguments that utterly refuse to acknowledge the realities of life for billions of women, we only damage the pro-choice argument by suggesting that abortion is anything less than it is. Every woman should be free to make this choice in the context of their own exceedingly complicated, individual circumstances, and unencumbered by the unrealistic notion that their level of emotion when considering the arguments should be zero.

The argument for abortion is both complex and exceedingly emotional. For most people at least.
