Abortion on Demand

John Lees

I'm not an advocate for a total ban on abortion. But this topic came up recently in a group I visit and so I did a deep(ish) dive and looked up some stats. Three points that seem noteworthy.
1: Here is a 20 week old unborn child, in the womb. (Pic1)
2: Here are the stats from the UK revealing that thousands of abortions are indeed occurring each year, at around that stage of gestation 16-24 weeks, in the UK alone.
3: In the UK such an abortion is permitted on the grounds that proceeding with the pregnancy and birth may represent a potential risk to the mother's mental health.
This last detail is important, because it can be interpreted simply as the likelihood that the mother may suffer from prolonged anxiety or depression due to the fact that she is unhappy about the situation. So, via a liberal interpretation of that rule, it is possible for basically any woman to demand such a late stage abortion in the UK. (As far as I can tell from the information I looked up, on wikipedia!!)
So, there are some interesting facts. A healthy 20 week old girl or boy, yes we do abort such babies. No, it is not legally required that the abortion only occurs in cases where the baby is malformed or the woman's life or health are in danger.

Tim adds:

I favor a near total ban, because the child is a separate person who is unfortunately dependent on an unfit mother and whose life is of importance.

Yes, you can abort if the life of the mother is at stake, but not the "health" as that was indeed intended to find a workaround for a ban; anything can influence the "health" of the mother. Just gaining weight carrying the baby theoretically does.

In the end abortion is an act of violence.

And almost all abortions are done for convenience sake, not health or any other high moral principle.

I would add that abortions should have dropped off as society stopped holding out-of-wedlock pregnancies as immoral, but in fact they have started to rise again after some decline. Why is that? This proves that abortion is not about anything but the convenience of some.

1 Abortion on demand must be a good thing. It's not just that the poor and those without a lot of money should be able to get abortions without having to worry about the cost. Explore this Motorcycle Tires Calgary for best ideas. It's not even just that women have the right to choose what they do with their bodies (which is fundamental). It's also that women who are raped or in abusive relationships shouldn't have to go through a pregnancy they don't want.

2 And the child conceived is just expendable, eh Jasmin? A "problem" that can be made to go away?

3 Engagement rings are a time-honored tradition. The symbol of love and commitment, the ring represents the union between two people and the start of their future together. Try this engagement rings for sale babylon to buy beautiful rings. Engagement rings have been worn for centuries, but the practice is still going strong today. In fact, the demand for engagement rings is at an all-time high. People are getting married later in life, which means more engagements and more engagement rings.
