Negative effects/applications of abortion (the act itself):
- the DEATH of the CHILD!!!
- the child's being deprived of his/her right to life
- extreme depression, or another devastating emotion state with the same effect, usually follows
- body goes into a physical state of panic
- bad afterthought, tendency to regret having the abortion
- the horribly sick means which are often used to kill the developing child
- the likelihood that the would-be-mother will consider another abortion
- the outright false propaganda made by pro-choicers, claiming that 'pregnancy centers' are designed to lure women considering abortion and 'misinform and mislead young women', when in fact their express intent is to be the place to go if you need help supporting the child, hence the name 'pregnancy center' (essentially, slippery hypocrisy that endangers a precious life) (Example)
*wipes brow* There are many more, but I think I got the point across.
'Positive' effects/applications of abortion (the act itself) NOTE: The following statements do NOT reflect MY views. Just because I know some punk is going to wrongly infer so. :
- women should have a 'right to choose'
- relief from an unwanted child
- possible aversion of death in childbirth
- euthanasia for a deformed or otherwise retarded child (even though euthanasia is not a positive thing at all )
Wow, those are the ONLY 'positive' things that I can think of.
you dont know what the child could be. even if hes a poor boy that lives in a cabin and is poor as dirt (Abraham Lincoln) or the 14th son of two people who were druggies and had so many STDs it was not even funny (Beethoven). The possiblities are limitless. Even if its a young unmarried tenager about 14 or 15 who got pregnant and was shunned (Jesus). Hundreds of couples desire a child each year and one could give the child to foster parents or a permenant home.
Im bored, what else is there to do?
<--Necco <-- Cedric <ans> made this sweet sig! l props to zelink for makin the heavy avy!
Jon you stupid piece of ****. What if it endangers the mother's life? Eh? Does that even count?
Um yeah. I kinda just wanted to say that. Another positive side is it does do a little part to keep the surplus population down? And the suffering the baby might go through. We have the technology to weed out imperfections! WE MUST USE IT AND BREED NON-RETARDED/DEFORMED PEOPLE!
The negatives have already been said. I think.
Oh and wind, most of your negatives could've been summed up into about three statements:
-Emotional and physical crap, such as depression, regret, and the pains.(depression comes with birthing the child anyway, so I dont see why that'd even be counted.)
-Denying the child a life, and the potential to be someone important (then again the child could be a druggy or a terrorist but no we must always look at the positive side, right?)
-Mother may consider another abortion.
I'm blantly ignoring the pregnancy centers one. Because if the girl is looking for support she should find it through family, friends, and the father. If she doesn't get it then she's a dirty whore who should kill herself then.
seems as though 100% of the people here are baised... lets be truthful here people
positives, The woman can live her life the way she feels fit
She can engage in sexual relations without the fear of pregnancy
Decrease the population
negatives, lowering the value of carrying a "life"
never knowing what the child could become
motherhood (if this is the first child)
meh... Whatever Commit fellatio speedy quadraped! Zelda I love you so much, don't deny me loving you or else I'll give you ADD and out of wed-lock pregnancy 98% of the teen population is cool, 2% aren't
Let me tell you a true story Jon. There was a little baby girl born to a mother who could not take care of the child and there wasn't a way for the child to recieve the proper care that was needed at there location. You want to know what happened to the child? It was found in the woods frozen to death before it even reached 1 year old. THe mother was found and prosecuted and convicted, though it took a few months to find her as the birth was not in a hospital So should the child have still been born even though it died alone in the cold woods before it reached 1 year old?
EDIT: And just to throw in my two cents on the positive and negative effects.
Helps prevent an even larger popilation.
Can save the child much suffering and eventual death if it was born with certain diseases or birth defects.
If the parnet(s) are unable to care for the child it'll save the child suffering.
Parents won't get as much money back on there tax returns.
Mother won't experience motherhood, for now.
Positives: If a woman is raped, why should she be forced to keep a child she is not ready for, a child she doesn't even want yet?
Negatives: The child dies, and that's all I can think of. I myself don't feel for an unborn child if it dies, especially if it is in its first months, I doubt it actually feels remember or feel anything.
I wouldn't even consider any posatives unless the child was going to be born with a hidiously painful defect like that skin disorder where there are no "hooks" in your skin so the skin bubbles up and pusses constantly.
Or in the case of a rape victim getting pregnant. Other than that I am 100% anti abortion.
