Abortion Is Immature Essay

881 words - 4 pages

What would it be like to die so young and so fragile? What would it be

like to kill something so young and so fragile? Abortion, in my definition, is

the taking of a life. Now it is hard for me to sit here and type this paper

when I know good and well that if my daughter or wife were ever raped I would

want whatever was inside of them out -- immediately. I think that to take the

life of an unborn just because the couple involved were too lazy to use

contraceptives, is immature and quite horrid. In this informative paper, you as

a reader will come to understand the facts on abortion and then understand where

I stand.

Let us begin. ...view middle of the document...

Others who are pro-life believe that the fetus can feel pain

as early as the seventh week. But even though these facts by Planned Parenthood

show a better side to abortion as well, nothing can compare to the guilt of the "

Post-traumatic abortion syndrome" right? Wrong.

According to Dr. Paul Sachdef, professor of social work at Memorial

University in Newfoundland, Canada, long term guilt or depression was rare in

the seventy in-depth interviews that he conducted of women ages eighteen to

twenty-five, single, and white. These classifications of the women interviewed

represented the largest group of women seeking abortions. He also found that

two-thirds of the women used contraceptives rarely or not at all. Three-fourths

of the women thought they would not become pregnant. Almost eighty percent "

felt relief and satisfaction" soon after the abortion. He also found the

elective abortion is much less traumatic for the parent/s than an elective

adoption. June Scandiffino disagreed with the good doctor's findings. She

believes that Post-traumatic abortion syndrome does not set in until perhaps

seven years after the abortion. I would like to believe both findings but I

find that it would be hard not to feel some loneliness and some guilt

immediately after having an abortion. What do you think?

My English professor gave me this assignment, to investigate a subject

of interest that we know little about but have wanted to learn more about and

then present it,...
