Pg. 26). • A “Vacuum Aspiration is used when the women is 7 to 12 weeks pregnant” (Runkle, Anne pg. 31). According to Runkle abortions have some risk factors.
  5. 5. Abortions • Researchers have found other reasons why women have abortions according to (abortion Overview Series, Nelson, Joan Pg. 38). Rape and incest, “about sixteen thousand women have abortions because they were raped or incest” (Nelson, Joan Pg38) • Nelson also stated that women have abortions because of their life styles, can’t afford another child, messed up relationship, not responsible, embarrassed, n ot old enough, have children already boyfriend or husband don’t want children, baby may not be healthy or because of the parents (Pg40).
  6. 6. Women rights • It’s a difficult choice for a woman if they are not ready for motherhood. • Mothers right are just as important as the fetus” and that abortion is murder” (pg. 8). • In 1970 abortions were legalized and it became safer and accessible to all women according to Williams. • “A women’s right to carry a pregnancy to term is protected just as her right to have an abortion is” (William Mary E., Pg. 17)
  7. 7. Women Choice • A women’s choice to carry a full term pregnancy is her choice (women’s choice to have or not have children is a right that government should protect” (William, Mary E., Pg. 17). • A woman body belongs to herself alone” (Lawrence Lader pg. 25). • Legal abortion has given woman a choice. • “For women and others, any restrictions on abortion place women in extremely difficult position of being responsible for a child they do not want. Because it is women that have to bear the responsibility of children it is their right to have an abortion”(Nelson, Joan pg. 74-75).
