Abortion

An argument as old as the day the concept was uttered, or even older. Many people will have a different stance on the issue, such as whether or not abortion is murder, none of which can be discredited. These various views are due to the perception of when life begins. Is it at conception? Is it a few weeks in? Is it when the child is born? These 3 questions are grey areas as there is no definitely yes or no answer, it is totally dependant on who is being asked.

For those who believe life begins at conception does this mean that those people who have tried in vitro fertilisation are murderers? After all, in vitro fertilisation uses fertilised human eggs and often many of these eggs are not implanted and thrown away, does this count as murder? For those who believe it's a few weeks in, for many abortions the embryos are terminated in the first trimester. During the first trimester the embryo cannot survive outside the womb therefore it should not be considered a separate entity to its mother.

As a whole, in life, a number of choices present themselves and as individuals we have the right to choose. As a result of this not only can the mother/couple in question make a choice to keep or abort a child but doctors can choose whether or not to perform the service. In recent times the number of places that will perform abortions has reduced in number as some people find themselves not agreeing with abortion. This is totally just in the fact that no one should be forced to do something they don't agree with, but at the same time, don't doctors and others in the healthcare profession take an oath to help every patient they see, and treat each patient with the same care? If a cancer patient wanted a tumour to be removed and it could be done successfully, would a doctor refuse them that right? Most would probably encourage this. Many people requesting an abortion may feel that their embryo is like a tumour - sucking the life out of them and thriving.

On the other hand others may argue that the doctor has the right to advocate for the embryo and that the doctor has to do what's best for both the individuals. Once again, rules and regulation have been brought in to determine when it's too late for a foetus to be aborted, but is their determination too early or too late? By looking at the development of an embryo it is astonishing to see how far they come in such little time. By 6 weeks an embryo has developed eye spots, a heart bulge, a jaw, and arm and leg buds. By 8 weeks eyelids, hands, knee joints and a brain have started to form. By 10 weeks fingers, shoulders and ear lobes have developed. The progression of development just gets more real as the weeks go on. Is it really logical to say life begins when a baby is born or is it earlier than that?

All in all, choice is an important aspect of abortion. The choice for the patient and the choice for the doctor. A doctor who doesn't believe in abortion but believes in the woman's right to choose will be in a dilemma as to which side they should take. Personally I believe choice is important, after all we make choices all the time, most of which we aren't scrutinised for, therefore I believe in abortion. I also feel that those people who say they are against it but it depends on circumstance (such as those who would allow it/go through it if someone/they were raped) are hypocrites.

  1. Dalam kasus tertentu cara menggugurkan hamil menjadi pilihan yang baik seperti darurat medis dan adanya korban pemerkosaan . Jika anda mengalami demikian yang dikarenakan masalah tersebut dan ingin melakukan cara menggugurkan kandungan umur 1 bulan sebaiknya konsultasikan ke dokter spesialis kandungan dan jangan melakukan cara yang tidak benar seperti cara menggugurkan kandungan dengan paracetamol di campur alkohol dan sebagainya . Ada beberapa penyebab haid tidak teratur yang dialami oleh wanita seperti stress dan tidak menjaga pola makan sehat dan gizi seimbang . Meskipun telat datang bulan biasa dianggap sebagai salah satu ciri ciri hamil tapi belum tentu itu benar , dan bisa jadi adanya penyebab lain seperti yang sudah kami sebut sebelumnya .

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.
