terminate the pregnancy.  It was our last parental decision.”  Her baby had severe birth  defects and no doctor could ever fix what was already done.  They had decided they did  not want that kind of life for their child; so they ended it.  That makes me wonder if there  is a difference of reasoning.  Isn’t it different to abort a baby for health reasons than for  selfish reasons?  If it would cause problems to the mothers health, or make the child’s life completely miserable it seems to be a little more understandable. On November 5, 2003, President Bush signed the federal partial-birth abortion  ban stating: “For years, a terrible form of violence has been directed against children who are inches from birth, while the law looked the other way.  Today, at last, the American  people and our government have confronted the violence and come to the defense of the  innocent child.” That was the first stand against abortion since the Roe V. Wade case 30  years ago.  Thankfully only one percent of abortions in the United States are at or after 21 weeks. As you can see, every part of abortion is very debatable and strikes every person  differently.  I think most of how you feel about it is influenced by the way you grew up.   As I’ve studied this subject I’ve realized a little more that abortions aren’t always a  horrible thing.  Sometimes it saves the mothers life.  Sometimes the child wouldn’t  survive if it were born anyway.  All in all though, I feel abortions should be used only in  emergency cases and not for what some people would consider “selfish” reasons.  I am  glad to get the opportunity to study this subject because I am studying to be an ultrasound technologist.  I love new life and I love to study every aspect of it!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
