If the woman became pregnant through a traumatic event

If the woman became pregnant through a traumatic event, such as rape or incest, proper medical care could ensure against pregnancy. Abortion punishes the unborn child, who innocent of any crime or fault. Abstinence or the use of contraception prevents the risk of unwanted pregnancy. Some woman chooses abortion when they know that the child they are carrying may have physical or genetic defects. This is a form of discrimination. A physical disability does not make any person less than human. The women must take into account any future physical or psychological effects of having an abortion. An abortion can result in medical complications later in life. The chance of a miscarriage with a future pregnancy increases. Abortion can also cause psychological pain and stress. There may be feeling of guilt or loss later in life. Leaving these feeling unchecked may lead to other harmful behaviors, such as sexual promiscuity, drugs, or alcohol, used to dull the effects of these feelings.
