A doctor in South Texas had to close his abortion clinic because of the state law passed last year. Texas Senate Bill 5 was created on June 11, 2013. Many patients called him because they didn’t know what to do with their pregnancy. The majority wanted to end the pregnancy and he was their only option because his clinic was cheap and good. The clinic was closed because the people of Texas do not believe that abortion should be a right of citizens and the clinic did not meet the strict legal standards of Texas..

This is a very controversial topic in the country because it can be disputed with different views of the  First Amendment.  Both the liberty of life and the right to privacy, plus some religious problems complicate this sensitive issue. A person doesn’t have the right to end a life.  People disagree on when a citizen’s life begins.  Some think it does not begin until live birth.   Even though the fetus is not fully formed, its already alive with a totally new combinations of cells and DNA. Most religions in the world are against abortion.  In this country every single citizen and resident has the freedom of religion.  Women who think they have the right to abortion and judges who decide they do are thinking about their own lives and the right to privacy.

I think prohibition of abortion in the whole nation is the only solution.  Some argue that illegal abortions cause more harm than legalizing it but I disagree.  The choice is made once you engage in sexual activity.  Citizens must accept the consequences of their actions and society must help them in doing this.

I am against abortion because of the way I was raised.  I believe that everyone has a right to live, no matter in what circumstances someone got pregnant, its not the baby’s fault and they deserve to have an opportunity in this world. Now, there are many ways to prevent a pregnancy and if you clearly don’t want the baby, you can put the baby on adoption because somewhere out there are many women that will do anything to have a baby.

Fact: Many women that had an abortion suffer from depression or anxiety, and regret her decision the rest of their life.

    I totally agree with your argument. I once did a mistake that will follow me the rest of my life. I feel like crap but it is already done. The only thing that helps me stand up is that I can help other girls and I can also give them my advice. I agree about how everyone has the right to live and I also agree with the cancellation of all abortion clinics.

    This is a very touchy subject. i feel really strongly about this topic but i am neither pro or anti abortion. There are so many different point of views that pulls me both ways. To me i am against abortion because you made the decision to do what you did and ended up in pregnancy. There is contrespetion to avoid getting pregnant, but instead of using it, women make stupid decisions which results in thrwoing away a valued life. In another case i am pro abortion becuase i know someone close to my heart who got raped and came up pregnant. She immediately decided on abortion and i agreed with her completely. I agreed with her because i could not imagine living with something that reminds you of such a tranatizing experience. She already has to live with the scars everyday, but to have a baby, another person, by someone who took your innocence away. I wouldnt do it. Thats re living a nightmare everyday, having a child by a man who ruined a peace of mind for you. Some are going to say “its not the babies fault”, yes, youre right, its not, but imagine how that baby will feel when he/she grows up and understand where they came from. That can hurt someone mentally to know that their mother got raped and they were the result of that. It is such a complex subject to just have one opinion about but thats how i feel about abortion.

    It is actually not true that abortion causes depression, anxiety, and in fact, most woman do not regret their decision. There is no proof what so ever in the studies conducted by many universities that abortion causes depression or anxiety. This article must have been written by a biased writer. So you’re saying because someone has sex and gets pregnant, that getting pregnant is a consequence? If you think of a baby as a consequence to having unprotected sex, then your pro-life argument is invalid. Abortion is a touchy subject and a huge debate within this country. I am pro-choice, yes nothing is the babies fault but in my personal opinion, after the first trimester abortions should not be allowed because that’s when i feel the fetus is actually becoming more and more human. If a woman has an abortion outside of an abortion clinic, it is proven in medical studies that is causes more damage then an organized abortion. I am pro-choice because I feel that our leaders in office do not have the right or the authority to make decisions about my body and my life. Maybe i get pregnant and its unplanned, i dont have the money, time, or the stable life a baby needs to be brought up in. If i am going to have a child, i want to give it the best life possible and give it everything it could ever need, rather than keep it and be struggling. Not to offend anyone with my comment but these are facts, and this is also my personal opinion.

    A very thought provoking article. Well done. Every time we touch something(I’ll probably kill villages of microorganisms typing this..but that’s alright so did you guys), every time we take a breath, we kill thousands, even millions of microorganisms. Solely to reap the benefit of our own survival. Just because we are more cognitively evolved than the rest of them, does it mean we should heighten our awareness and stop killing them? No, it doesn’t stop the fact that they’re still dying. We aren’t taking their lives purposefully because death is nothing the cycle of life and nature. Abortion, is pretty much the same thing if timed correctly. A fetus isn’t considered to be a “human” until it hits the age of 20-24 weeks. It’s compared to a light patch of skin on your elbow or your fingertip. So technically, an abortion would be like killing and slapping that annoying mosquito that bit you while you were out at the park. Or like when we type out comments for out government class. We’ve all preformed abortions throughout our lives. Every second, hour, and day. All life on this planet is equal. No matter how advanced us human beings are.

    I do not agree with the statement that we have all performed Abortions. An Abortion in this case is defined as interfering with the natural process of human life in such a way that ends human life. When a medical procedure is performed with the sole purpose of ending the fully present potential for human life in a pregnant woman then this is known as abortion. The social debate revolves around a woman’s right to privacy and the very youngest of human life. When does the right to life begin? I say before birth at the moment when all the potential for human development is present.

    The issue of overpopulation is and always will be an ongoing issue. To say that abortion isn’t a part of the “natural” cycle of life withdrawals from the topic of medical procedures entirely. What brings about success in humanity? Science and the ability to nip things in the bud before they actually become detrimental to society’s progression. Homosexuality for instance, may be seen to some as a “poisonous”. But is it really? I believe that homosexuality, like abortion is humanity’s way of dealing with the issue of overpopulation. Which, is technically part of the “natural” circle of life. As an increasingly progressing species, we have MADE abortion into an extension of the natural cycle of life. As sad as the idea of “taking ones potential, developmental life” may seem, it’s nothing but a revolutionized version of a lion going in for the kill.
