Here are a few arguments for and against abortion in the wake of Georgia/Ohio’s heartbeat bill and Alabama’s anti-abortion bill

Here are a few arguments for and against abortion in the wake of Georgia/Ohio’s heartbeat bill and Alabama’s anti-abortion bill



There has been massive outrage after the Georgia Governor Brian Kemp on Tuesday signed into law a “heartbeat” bill, banning abortion as early as six weeks into pregnancy. There has also been massive support from some quaters too. Georgia isn't he only state implementing the "heartbeat" bill. Ohio has also implemented the heartbeat bill and the Alabama governor signed into law a near-total abortion ban that could punish doctors who perform abortions with life in prison. Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey on Wednesday signed the controversial abortion bill, saying, "Today, I signed into law the Alabama Human Life Protection Act, a bill that was approved by overwhelming majorities in both chambers of the Legislature. To the bill's many supporters, this legislation stands as a powerful testament to Alabamians' deeply held belief that every life is precious and that every life is a sacred gift from God." While some people, especially people who identify as prolife, are in support of the anti-abortion laws, others have slammed it as restricting women's rights to their reproductive health. Those arguing in support of the bill say life begins from conception and should be preserved.  But those against have said that a woman should be able to abort her child rather than bring he child to the world only to abuse and kill the child. They gave examples using the increasing number of kids on the streets and in foster care. They also mentioned kids killed by their parents. They went on to point out that the same law makers forcing parents to have kids they don't want will not donate a kobo to take care of those kids when they are born. Others arguing against the bill mentioned that if it is detected that a child in the womb has a congenital disease or a disability, the parents should be allowed to abort the child rather than bring them to the world to suffer. They also pointed out that a woman who has an ectopic pregnancy should be allowed to abort her child rather than die during pregnancy. The most prominent argument against the bill is that women who are victims of rape and incest shouldn't be forced to bring the kids into the world because those parents will most likely hate the kids and the kids could be scared for life, knowing their history. Others said the lawmakers making these rules do not actually care for women, children, or religion but simply want a means to control women and their sexuality. The argument has been heated on Twitter and a great number of celebrities have lent their voice to the argument, incuding Rihanna (read here), Dua Lipa, and more. Below are just a few tweets from Nigerians who have joined people from other parts of the world to talk about the bill. The post Here are a few arguments for and against abortion in the wake of Georgia/Ohio’s heartbeat bill and Alabama’s anti-abortion bill appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
