Nowadays, even if abortion is legal in many countries, it is still a controversial subject.
Mother Teresa saw it as harmful and detrimental to society and went as far as comparing it to murder. Abortion should be legal in all countries or should remain so. It is not a murder but merely social progress, and it is a decision that should be a woman’s and a woman’s alone.(Abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy, most often performed during the first 28 weeks of pregnancy.
Abortion is not something new, it has existed since ancient time, however, safe abortion with clean techniques exists since the 20th century. The first country to legalize abortion was Iceland in 1935, 80 years ago. And since this date, more and more countries made abortion legal, despite the disagreement that a lot of religious people have expressed.)Firstly, despite the ban on abortion in some countries, women will abort. Indeed, According to the World Health Organization (WHO), abortion rates are similar in countries where the procedure is legal and in countries where it is not.
If women don’t want to have a baby, they will not have it, they will always find a way to abort whether its is made in healthy conditions or not. The problem is that in those countries, because abortion is illegal, the conditions are insalubrious and may be dangerous for women. Illegal abortion threat women health, 48% of world’s abortion were in hazardous conditions. More than 97% of these unsafe abortions were in developing countries..When allowed by law, abortion in the developed world is one of the safest procedures in medicine, it is not a coincidence.
Secondly, women must have the right to abort or not, such a decision must be their choice. A women can have many legitimate reasons not have a child, for example she is raped and becomes pregnant, she should have the right not to have the unwanted baby. Furthermore, a women can sometimes feel unready or too young to have a baby, indeed, becoming a mother implies many responsibilities.Thirdly, because the world’s population is too high, having a lot of childrens can lead to overpopulation and then poverty. Indeed, for the time being, 7.
6 billions of people are living. In fact, many problems are due to overpopulation, and more people means more pollution which is the main thing that causes global warming. Another point is that legal abortions can control poverty. To have a lot of children is very difficult for parents.
They have to earn money in order to raise their children.
