Summary: In 1969, a law was passed to regulate abortion under the Criminal Code. It permitted a qualified medical practioner to perform an abortion, if prior approval was obtained by a Therapeutic Abortion Committee. A 1988 Supreme Court of Canada decision found this process unconstitutional. The 1969 law was rendered unenforceable and abortion was effectively decriminalized. As of March 1998 a woman may obtain an abortion in all provinces and territories of Canada, except Prince Edward Island.


For many years now many different people with different life situations had different opinions about abortion. Some people say it is completely wrong, some say it is fine under certain circumstances, and some think it is right. Abortion is wrong because most of the women are unsure about their decisions, and some women may regret it later in their life, wondering whether the made the right choice or not. How can they be sure when they are taking their own child's life? The federal government should eliminate legalized abortion because it is wrong morally to kill a human being, especially your own child, and is wrong according to the Bible.

Summary: The author expresses an opinion about why abortion should be legal. The two main reasons cited are pregnancy by rape and that it would be impossible to stop illegal abortions.


What is abortion? Abortion is the deliberate termination of a pregnancy through removal of the embryo or fetus. It is possible to terminate a pregnancy at any time from conception to birth, but 88% of abortions are performed in the first "trimester." (In Good Conscience, Anna Runkle). I support abortion for the following reasons. If a girl is raped she has the right to abort the fetus because she would not want a baby with such a memory. If a woman feels that it is necessary for her to get an abortion, it would not matter if it is illegal or not, she will get an illegal one anyway which is hazardous for her own health.

When a girl is raped, she feels dreadful. The trauma of being raped could break her down and make her depressed and that is only the beginning. After she gets raped, in her own eyes, she has no respect or self-esteem for herself and then comes the embarrassment. Her reputation in the society will be damaged permanently and everyone will look down upon her. Even her own family's reputation will be tainted. After the unwanted baby is born, the childhood that he or she will get will not be the best one it deserves because of how it was originated. At home, the raped woman would not be a good mother and be cruel to the baby. Therefore, because of this abnormal type of childhood, when the child grows up and becomes a teenager, he will often turn to crime and be involved in gangs and drugs. He has a very strong chance of getting hurt or getting arrested or in a worse case scenario, be killed. All this could be prevented if the mother was allowed to get an abortion early on and she would not have to face all the shame and embarrassment for herself and her family.

My second reason is that if woman got raped and she really wanted an abortion, may it be legal or not, she will get one. When we are desperate, we do desperate things and that is what a woman will do. You cannot stop her from getting an illegal one, which is very, very dangerous for the woman from the use of non sterilized tools
