Charlene Mays Professor H. English 1C 23 March 2010 Risk in Teenage Abortions Teenagers should not be allowed to have abortions. There are too many risk; abortions can cause young women infertility, meaning they will not be able to have kids. Young women young women have to deal with extreme fetal pain during an abortion process; there is also the probability that some can die right there on the table and have drastic changes in there hormones. Studies have proven that abortions can lead to an increased chance of breast cancer, Pelvic Inflammatory disease, and the contraction of Viral Hepatitis due to excessive bleeding and complications.
We as teenagers also need to learn to grow up and take care of our responsibities Teen abortions is legal in almost every state, although some require parental or guardian permission. Abortion is the prevention of an innocent life, which is allowed without permission in over 20 states. I feel that teenage abortions should be banned from all stats even the ones with parent permission because sometimes a parent can force a child to have an abortion. Many women do not see a problem with abortion because according to them, a fetus is just cells.
A fetus is more than just cells, it is a human being. Eighteen days after conception, doctors have detected the unborn child’s beating heart. Forty-five days after conception, brain waves have been detected. By three months, all body systems are present and functioning. All of these things occur in the first trimester and ninety-five percent of abortions are performed during the first trimester. What would you do if you accidentally got a young female pregnant, would you handle your responsibilities, or would you take the easy way out and get the abortion?
Each and everyday teenagers all over the world are making the decision of taking the easy way out. Now days the way to bail out of having a child is to get an abortion. then you’ll never have to worry about diapers, and milk. When you handle your responsibilities you get the enjoyment of raising you own and being there for a younger one that will look up to you for the rest of there life. As a teenagers having an abortion can impact your life forever whether you decide to abort or give birth. Most teenagers find them selves in a hard position when a child is on its way of being born. eenagers begin to panic and think of all the things that they will miss out on in life, because of a child being born. Your friends and peers around you will either support you or start to dislike you in terms of your decision to get rid of a living fetus. Once any teenager its not like it can be undone the baby is already dead. All teenagers should take there time and really think about it before they go and get this process done. Abortions can cause young girls to have infertility in there futures. Whether you choose to keep your baby, put the baby up for adoption or have an abortion, hormones run crazy when you are pregnant.
As you feel the life inside you start to grow, you become attached to it, or perhaps even angry with this new life. Sometimes teens even try to kill themselves because they don’t want to go though the abortion process. Some parents force teenagers to get abortions so that it doesn’t look bad on them and ruin their daughters lives. Responsibility is a big thing in raising a child without responsibility you find your self wanting to take the unborn life away. The issue of abortion has divided the country. However, there is an issue that we can all come to agree and that is a genuine reluctance of our society to take responsibility.
The truth is that the majority of abortions do not occur because of the raping of a woman, incest, or potential loss of the mother’s life. So why do they occur so often? They occur because people realize that they do not want to have a child for a number of different reasons from an inability to afford one to the potential change it causes to the female body. Nonetheless, the decision is not made because of the fear of the mother losing her life or any of the predominant explanations for the occurrence of abortions.
At the root of the occurrence of so many abortions is the inability of individuals in society to take responsibility for their actions. Bearing children is the natural result of sexual intercourse under favorable conditions, it is not forced upon women by the United States government. I am forced to wonder: If a woman has a history of bad decisions which cause her an unwanted pregnancy, why should our society trust her to take the welfare of the child into account and trust her not make the abortion decision?
Still, though it is clear that women have made choices that put them in the position of being pregnant, it is worthwhile to repeat a few reasons why abortion is an abhorrent murder of a baby. When a teenager gets pregnant there young bodies open up to a lot of diseases. They can contract Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, and the contraction of Viral Hepatitis due to excessive bleeding and complications. There is a possibility that teenagers can die on the table or to have drastic fetal pain.
During the abortion process teenagers will feel excessive cramping as the excess blood discharges from the body. Teenagers may also contract Bacterial vaginosis which is one of the most common vaginal infections that occur in women today in the United States. Also a teenager can mess up her body by getting abortion that she can have a handicapped newborn in later on wanted pregnancies. Abortion is associated with cervical and uterine damage which may increase the risk of premature delivery, complications of labor and abnormal development of the placenta in later pregnancies.
Complications are the leading causes of handicaps among newborns. Compared to women who abort teenagers who abort are two to four times more like to commit suicide. Teens are more likely to have psychological and relationship problems. Studies have shown that the major factors in pregnancy decision making among teens are the attitude of the teens parents, the baby’s father, and friends; the personality of the girl herself. A young girls mind can be messed up, this physical effect may cause her to feel an emotional emptiness she have never felt before.
Less frequent side effects include possible heavy or prolong bleeding, blood clots, damage to the cervix and the uterus. Infection due to retain products of conception or infection caused by an STD or bacteria being introduced to the uterus can cause fever, pain. Abdominal tenderness and possibly scared tissue. All extreme things that you can die from. Teen abortion kills an innocent life. You exist because your mother chose to give birth to you. Personally I believe abortion is wrong and is definitely not a decision a teenager should have to make at all.
Abortions should be band from society because we all need to grow up and take care of our responsibilities. Yea you might get pregnant, and you might not be ready but that doesn’t give you the right to kill an innocent life. Just think God has sent you down a soon to be beautiful baby, there are a lot of people that are unfortunate and have to adopt. Whether it is physical harm to the body or the religious point of view, there are two many risk with abortions in general.
