People believe that abortion is always the right decision to do once they find out they are pregnant. Abortions are performed in a horrible unexplainable way that most people don’t understand. An aborted baby has done no wrong. People believe abortion is just a simple way to get rid of a mistake , should babies really be called a mistake ? There are other options such as adoptions. Is it necessary to take a human life ? Abortions are risky and can have complications. People lives are at a risk during the process. Choosing abortion is immoral , cruel , and other choices exist instead of killing an innocent baby.
Society Believes
Abortion is a great problem in the American society because some people consider it illegal and it is simply wrong. Great philosophers such as Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas wrote at some length about what has been termed the “Natural Law”. Natural law states that everyone is entitled to it , it also states that a human being knows what is right from wrong and for every action there is a consequence.(O’Halloran,2012) Therefore there are no excuses for these teenagers to be doing what they are doing to cover up their mistakes. “ I’ve got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make mistakes, I don’t want them punished with a baby.” (obama,2008). A human being should be able to know when something is wrong as the natural law has stated .

(Tanner,2012)
Teenagers might not choose abortion if they were given information or the right tools on options. Unplanned pregnancy among young adults is at the roof of a number of important public health and social challenges. Unplanned pregnancies are frequently resolves by abortion. 1.3 million in the the united state in 2001 ,, and although americans differ a great deal in their views about abortion, virtually all of us see value in reducing the prevalence of abortion and would prefer that fewer women have to confront an unplanned pregnancy in the first place. Young people do not know the consequences that an abortion could bring them or the right to know what is best to do, and why consider the possibilities about abortions,others have abortions for high risk and develop diseases. Birth defects and birth disorders affect over 150,000 children every year in America. Although we know that a birth defect may be caused by genetic or environmental factors , over sixty percent of birth defect causes are currently not known. Education on prevention, causes , and treatment is one way to help families manage birth defects. Children born from unplanned pregnancies also face a range of developmental risks as well. For example, these children report poorer physical and mental health compared to children born as the result of an…
