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 .

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

Marvel and Sony Reach Agreement For Spiderman

A quick glimpse into our archive would reveal we here at Don't Laugh, People are fans of comic books and their respective movies. I do not often divulge into a battle of DC vs. Marvel vs. the others, because I typically enjoy plenty from all (but yes, I do think Marvel is the best for art and for stories). However, "the last 24 hours have been really exciting."* Kudos to you if you didn't need to look up that quote... damn you if you did. *Dr. Okun - Independence Day

It was announced by many sources late last night/early this morning, that Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures had finally reached an agreement for their partnership in order to introduce Spiderman into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (where The Avengers live). Marvel will reportedly allow Sony to retain Spiderman's rights to let Amy Pascal produce films in the title, but she will be aided by Marvel's top man, Kevin Feige, in her endeavors. Feige will be involved in Spiderman's 2017 standalone fil…
