Sather further argues that before the 24 week, the fetus has not yet acquired human features and it does not amount to murder if you perform an abortion before this time.
Even when performed by a qualified medical doctor there is a chance that complications may arise like in some medical procedures and if this happens, you could definitely lose your fertility.
In fact, interviews conducted on women who had complications when performing an abortion revealed that a majority of them had lost the ability to conceive or hard a miscarriage (Koster 304) The relief that one feels after procuring an abortion is usually short-lived, and it dies after some time leading to a permanent feeling of guilt and sadness.
There are several arguments that one forward in support of abortion.
First of all, any birth of a child should occur when the parents want and not by chance (Potts et al. This way it would go a long way in assisting the world to have an environment where all children that are born in this world have an environment conducive for proper development.
It is not clear as to when life begins, and as so long as a woman feels that she cannot have a baby, she has the freedom to do it since it is not yet clear when the life of a person begins.
Sometimes complications can occur to a pregnancy that may put the life of the mother or unborn child in danger and even at times all of them.According to Koster abortion is only a temporary and irrational decision that make women feel that they have gotten some relief to an unwanted child against chances of permanent loss of infertility (Koster 304).She further argues that although removing an unwanted pregnancy may somehow offer relief to the woman the possibility of becoming infertile especially if an unqualified person performed the operation is very significant and once you lose your fertility there is zero chance that you will regain it.It is estimated that in all married couples in the United States alone, between 10% -15% of them do not have the ability to have children (Grunlan 217).This figure is so high that more and more Americans are turning to other countries overseas in order to get children of their own and as Grunlan further adds; this figure has been increasing in the recent years as more mothers turn to abortion as a way of controlling birth.Fro this he further adds that since the fetus of a person has life, then taking it away will amount to killing it, which is the same as murder.Of course from this reason arguments are bound to arise as to when the life of a person actually begins.Several disadvantages of abortion are argued out by pro-lifers.Most of the books on the subject are mostly in support of the drawbacks of abortion as compared to the advantages.To all Christians led by the Catholic Church, it is completely unacceptable to allow a person to take away another person’s life for whichever reason and at whatever stage in life as it is still murder.The late Pope John Paul is on record as having condemned the practice and even stating that it would threaten the freedom and dignity of humankind as it promotes a culture of accepting death as a normal thing (Zastrow & Kirst 82) Procuring an abortion is not the only solution in the event of unwanted pregnancy as the child could also be put to adoption.
