My Rebuttal On Abortion
August 4, 2014
The article I chose was about abortion and why I feel that abortion should be illegal. The article discusses the topic of abortion in how abortion is murder and the potential health hazards women may face upon receiving an abortion. The claims in which the author made were valid but not as widespread as the author wants the reader to believe.
Facts Against Abortion
The risk of a woman’s death from abortion is less than one in 100,000. Whereas, the risk of a woman dying from giving birth is 13.3 deaths per 100,000 pregnancies. Furthermore, a 1993 ...view middle of the document...
I ask the author does he or she not know what women were doing to themselves during the time abortion was illegal.

Women have had “back-alley” abortions where the conditions were so unsafe, the majority of the cases; both woman and child were found dead. Almost everything has been used to induce abortions when they were illegal, from clothes hangers to heavy objects being rammed into their stomachs but yet believed by many, abortion should still be illegal?
I just don’t think it is fair. The agreement is that it does not teach the teen girls any responsibility. On one point it does alter their life but on the other hand this is a life that they are killing. Teens are using abortion like a birth control pill and not taking a second thought. These teens think their life is over and it is not they can still get an education and live their lives as normal. It will be different and it will be more work but it can be done. In addition, there are so many complications when it comes to abortion such as cancer and other problems with your ovaries and uterus not being able to function properly anymore. I strongly feel that abortion is wrong and it’s just a quick way to not accept ones responsibility for their own actions.
