In America, about 1.3 million abortions are performed each year. And many wonder why would anyone want to abort their child? Here are some reasons why a woman would want to have abortion: rape, incest, they feel they are too young or they are in a situation of financial instability. Although abortion is a women’s right, pro-life groups believe otherwise.
What most women fail to realize is that there are side effects along with abortion.
These side effects consist of women having heart diseases, cancer, depression or even death during surgery. As depression seems to be the main side effect from abortion, women start having this symptom a couple weeks after the procedure.
This can lead to a continuous regret about the termination that can affect their lives. If others still feel that abortion is the right choice “think about whether is it worth the pain of only 9 months or the pain of a lifetime.”
At Western Michigan University, students should lead with integrity. As a woman, saving a child will bring great astonishment to your life. Students especially women should know that there are other ways to cope with raising a child than abortion itself. Adoption can be a way, but not Abortion. That should never be the answer to solve a situation.
While attending college, students can look for a day care center that’s close to the institution. This can help students maintain going to school, while their kid is at day care. One center that is close to Western Michigan University is West Main KinderCare center. At this center, children ages from 6 weeks to 12 years old can attend during Mondays thru Fridays. So, whether you’re a pro-life or pro-choice advocate there will always be a debate on this issue.
