Abortion? Think again…

Abortion   Abortion: to deliberately cause a miscarriage.

Most women would easily take a Plan B, also known as the morning after pill; however, women also look to a new substitute, abortion, an alternative in the termination of a pregnancy.

In my opinion, women should have the right to do as they please with their body because it’s their property.

Despite, women should not terminate babies by way of abortion because of the safety risks, and legal issues that are not guaranteed during the process.

There are two different forms of abortion: medication abortion and surgical abortion.

Surgical abortion otherwise known as suction abortion, can be performed in the minimum of one day. This procedure involves your cervix opening is moderately widened with rods of expanding size and a slender tube is then lodged into your uterus. The fetus and the placenta are introverted with gentle suction. Another utensil called a curette is used to examine that the uterus is empty.

As a woman myself I understand that sometimes situations such as rape, and unplanned pregnancies occur at the wrong time and some women look for a way to quickly stop the pregnancy. I agree that if you’re not able to take care of and provide for your child then you should be able to cease the pregnancy by abortion.

There are many risks and dangers to abortion such as pelvic infections, a cut or torn cervix, and a tear of the wall of the uterus. These are things that may cause women to be sterile, meaning that as a woman you will not be able to have nor produce babies. This is also known as the inability to get pregnant due to infection or complication from an operation.

From my perspective, taking a life is not something that I would be able to do so I would never be able to engage in getting an abortion.

Not only would I never be able to engage in getting an abortion, if I ever got one an wasn’t able to reproduce, I wouldn’t be able to live with myself. I could never be one to judge a person because I am unaware of their circumstance but I will ask if you move forward or indulge with getting an abortion think carefully and do your research.
