Transcript of Against Abortion (Pro-life)

Thesis Abortion has been a controversial issue
throughout the decades. It is a
procedure used to terminate a pregnancy,
either medically or surgically, whichever way
it is used, abortion is morally and socially
incorrect. Legalized abortion gives gives the right to conduct murder; the Heartbeat Bill needs to be legistlated worldwide to end the slaughtering of our youth. History The history of abortion in America can be traced back to the early American colonies. The people of this time were totally against any kind of abortion until well into the 19th century. In fact, it was considered a misdemeanor if you had an abortion after what was called quickening (feeling life). Most states considered the child in the womb to have legal rights even after the death of the mother. It wasn't until 1962 when there was organized effort toward legalizing abortion even though physicians had written about the abortion problem since 1933. In 1900, abortion had been banned at any time during pregnancy (except when necessary to save the woman's life) by every state in the Union. Why the reversal in views? Religion had little to do with it, but rather, drastic economic and social conversions were turning this country to an urban-industrial society. America was changing from having one of the highest birthrates in the world to one of the lowest. Abortion played a role in that change. Then, in 1973, Roe v. Wade is the historic Supreme Court decision overturning a Texas interpretation of abortion law and making abortion legal in the United States. The Roe v. Wade decision held that a woman, with her doctor, could choose abortion in earlier months of pregnancy without restriction, and with restrictions in later months, based on the right to privacy. Anti-thesis People argue that if stricher laws were legislated against abortions there would be more "backyard" or unsafe abortions. Its argued that if abortions were illegal or stricter laws
were in place it would be unconstitutional to the women
carrying the baby. Rape and incest victims should be allowed to have abortions
under any circumstance. If a mothers life is in danger during the pregnancy she
should be able to have an abortion to save her own
life. Local On June 28th 2011, the Heartbeat
bill cleared the Ohio house.
This bill would impose the stictest
abortion limit in the nation. The bill
passed with a 54-43 ratio, led by the
Republicans. Now the bill goes on to
the senate were its outcome is uncertain. Payton Houck Anti-Abortion (Pro-life) What is the Heartbeat Bill? The Ohio House also passed two other abortion restrictions, one that would ban late-term abortions after 20 weeks if a doctor determines that the fetus is viable outside the womb.
Another bill excludes abortion coverage from the state insurance exchange created by the federal health care law.
The late-term ban already was passed by the Ohio Senate.
Neither bill was as contentious as the heartbeat legislation, which does not contain exceptions for rape, incest or the life or health of the mother. Is a pending bill in the state of Ohio that prohibits abortion after a fetal
heartbeat is detected, without the exception of rape, incest, or the health
of the mother. Political Aspects Political issues on abortion are very controversial but largely include a woman's right to choose or the child's right to life otherwise classified as pro choice and pro life. Some sources believe that the government has taken away the unalienable rights of the child by questioning when the child actually becomes a person and by recognizing the rights of the mother over the rights of the child. Some believe that the government should not have so much authority as to take away protection from the unborn. In addition, a candidate's position on abortion influences many voters on how to vote and who to vote for. Abortion debate facts are not just black or white, life or death, but instead are largely voiced with opinions based upon the health of the woman and her views of whether or not to have the child or deny that child life. Prior to 1973, abortions were permitted in certain states but restricted or almost banned in others. Every state legislature created its own rules. There was no consistency across the U.S. Then, in 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court delivered one of its most famous and influential rulings: Roe v. Wade. It declared a Texas anti-abortion statute unconstitutional and thereby affected abortion laws in many other states. 1

The Supreme Court justices determined that, anywhere in the U.S.:

During the first three months of pregnancy, a woman and her physician may jointly decide to terminate a pregnancy. No significant state interference is allowed.
Later in pregnancy, states can restrict abortion access with laws but only if they are intended to protect the woman's health.
Once the fetus is viable, an abortion must still be available if the woman's health or life are at risk. State governments are free to pass legislation that will allow or prohibit late-term abortions -- those on a viable fetus -- for other reasons. Economic Aspects A researcher who has spent over a decade examining the economic impact of abortion finds that the approximately 50,5 million abortions in the U.S. since 1970 have cost the American economy $35 trillion. That comes in the form of lost productivity by having fewer workers contributing to society.

Those contributions also come in the form of taxpayers contributing to state, federal and local governments that would have had more funds to pay teachers, offer health care benefits or put more police on the streets.

The cost to the economy also includes the lost support for the social security system, which experts say still presents a host of challenges for the future and questions about whether younger Americans will receive anything from it.

Dennis Howard, the president of the pro-life group Movement for a Better America, has researched the economic impact of abortion since 1995.

“We found that the 50.5 million surgical abortions since 1970 have cost the U.S. an astonishing $35 trillion dollars," in lost Gross Domestic Product, he told LifeNews.com on Monday. “However, if you include all the babies lost to IUDs, RU-486, sterilization, and abortifacients, the number climbs to $70 trillion."

that helps women discover why they should not have

And that's very wrong. I could never, ever have an abortion." President Ronald Reagan in 1982 "Simple morality dictates that unless and until someone can prove the unborn human is not alive, we must give it the benefit of the doubt and assume it is (alive). And, thus, it should be entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Justin Bieber: Singer “I really don’t believe in abortion. I think it [an embryo] is a human. It’s like killing a baby,” internationally More than 30,000 African women die each year from unsafe abortions and thirty thousand women suffer serious injuries, including infertility. According to WHO estimates, 4.2 million unsafe abortions occur annually in Africa.
•Africa comprises 44% of the 70,000 unsafe abortion deaths globally.
•20 to 50% of all maternal deaths in African countries are abortion-related.
•Of the estimated 19 million unsafe abortions in the world each year, 18 million occur in developing countries.
•Of all causes of maternal mortality, unsafe abortion is the easiest to prevent. Abortions are unsafe in developing countries and women are dying from them. If we help fund education to women internationally about abortion they would think twice on having one, because they can not afford a safe one and they could keep their children if properly funded. Nationally Kansas, Ohio and Indiana are each passing new laws that restrict funding to, and regulate clinics that provide abortions. The new laws, which came with Republican gains in the 2010 elections, are being challenged in the courts, but have not yet reached the Supreme Court. Observers say some of the cases could actually challenge Roe vs. Wade. Kansas is imposing new, stricter licensing guidelines on its three abortion clinics. Only one Planned Parenthood clinic has confirmed that they have received their license. The two other have confirmed that they have failed and will be forced close.

Since May 10, Indiana has denied any Medicaid funding to entities other than hospitals, that provide abortions. Planned Parenthood, the most effected medical provider in Indiana, says it will have to turn away over 9,000 Medicaid patients. An Indiana Federal Judge has placed an injunction on the law, saying federal law allows Medicaid patients to choose their own provider.

Having the morning-after-pill be easy to get and cheap. And have help woman understand what it is and does for them. Use government funding to raise awareness in educating our youth on what the baby goes through when an abortion is being performed and alternatives to it. google images google images google images http://anma-africa.org/AboutUs google images google images The heartbeat bill needs to be legislated to help prevent abortions after the first fetal heartbeat is detected. This needs to be done locally, nationally, and internationally. If a woman ends the life of her baby just because of the fact she does not want it, is truly wrong. That is not a reason at all to end the life of another human being. Every life has a right to live. Interview: Cynthia Mackie- Student One of your family member has had an abortion
before, how do you feel about that? "Its kind of sad because that is a part of my
family so its essentially part of me and to know
that i'll never get to meet them is upsetting." Your 17 right? If you became pregnant would you abort the baby? "Yes i'm 17. and if i became pregnant at
this age i would not abort it, i would probably
just give it up for adoption and ask to see pictures
of it as it grows up, like off of Teen Mom."
